Sister's Yurt

About this space

Set among 120 acres of forest, The Sister's Yurt is a charming example of a natural earthen building with beautifully crafted earthen walls made from clay and natural resources in the forest.

314 square feet with a wood-burning stove, an outdoor shower, and a self-composting toilet.

It is across the creek from our farm- near where our farm scholars live. The only place on our property where you could have the closest to a farm experience.

The space

A perfect rustic retreat in a remote forest area. 120 acres of hikes in raw nature and organic permaculture farm. Extremely protected area. Artesian spring water and pure air. Ecological living in a pure, native environment without any kind of pollution. Ecological home, natural building, no pollutants. Architecturally designed using patterns found in nature. No cell reception, but WiFi is available at the CrossRoads, where you park, to make voice-over wifi calling. Surrounded by rare and beautiful vegetation and wildlife. Child-friendly, but no pets. To maintain a high environmental standard, please remove shoes indoors.

Guest access

We have 120 acres of lush forest to explore. There are beautiful natural buildings to visit, including a cobb sauna, a redwood-grove treehouse, and a meditation gazebo- all open for guests to enjoy. We run the sauna seasonally during Spring and Fall. but you are welcome to explore it regardless, as it is a piece of art. We are a registered organic farm, based on permaculture and biodynamic principles with over 100 different varieties of fruits, nuts, tropicals, medicinal plants, berries, and whatever vegetables we are growing. We keep the farm side separate but if you are interested we can let you know when we have workshops or farm tours available. Please do not harvest, except when you come to a harvest retreat or experience.

Our farm is a sustainable living center. Our lifestyle and living structures promote sustainability in every area: self-composting toilets, outdoor showers, eating off the land, drinking artesian spring water. Our area is remote and rustic and calls for a back-to-nature mindset, although inside of the Bear Hut you have every comfort.
