This yurt glamping experience was everything we wanted it to be. Two nights away from the city wasn't enough. :) There's a few other camp sites nearby, but we only saw people a few times. The Shangri-La 14 Foot Yurt/Soak Tub site is private and near a stream, so it's very relaxing, especially when your are soaking in the tub! This was my partners first time camping and he can't wait to go back! Thank you Andrea!

This yurt is super comfortable and relaxing. You can hear running water at all times. The bathtub is the perfect addition. It is easy to spend hours just lounging in pure peace. The hike to the 1000 year old tree is a special gem. There is a river fairly close if you want to venture out a bit. Really happy spending the weekend here!

Perfect getaway in the woods. The yurt was cozy and secluded, with a great view of the stars at night. As far as glamping goes, the bathtub was a real selling point. Brought our own soap and luxuriated in bathing by nature. We went during Labor Day Weekend so it was refreshing to get out of the heat. Andrea had graciously left us kayaks, firewood and sheets for the bed.

We didn't have a 4x4 but you can park up by the entrance and walk down the yurt fairly easily. Aside from the occasional mosquito, we had no issues at all and had a really lovely stay. Would definitely recommend!

Nice yurt, but need suv or 4x4

Overall enjoyed my stay at this yurt, but want to highlight the location as a key consideration before booking. I didn’t feel like I was adequately prepared with information for what the last hour of the drive would be like. The location is very remote - the last ~10 miles is a dirt road that gets progressively more difficult to drive on. It becomes a trail for cars effectively and there’s incline. It takes about an hour each way or maybe 40 mins if you drive fast with the confidence your tires will hold up. I would highly recommend a 4x4 and at a minimum an SUV. We had a Toyota RAV4 and we thought we were lucky our tires didn’t pop or we didn’t get stuck the two round trips we made. We didn’t have to deal with rain or other troublesome weather for reference. There’s also no signal if you do get stuck and no way to contact the host or help.

The yurt was maginficent. The hot tub had hot water in the wilderness which made it worthwhile. There were some disappointing aspects though. First, communication with the host was difficult. We had asked for bedding and the propane gas stove which she did not provide. We had planned our trip assuming that she would provide it. Luckily, we made do with the campfire and we carried our own bedding just in case. Second, the pictures show some nice lighting by the bathtub which was there when we arrived however, the batteries had to be replaced. Unfortunately, we didn't have any so we made do without it.
The listing could be a little bit inaccurate, so check with the host before leaving.
You definitely could do with a four-wheeler. I had a sedan, which wasn't the worst thing but there was an instance when I was worried that my car wouldn't make it through.

What a magical, rustic adventure! The yurt was deep in the forests of mendocino, completely private and secluded. Once you pass the first Hipcamp sign you have to drive for at least 5 miles up a rough mountainous road, so I would definitely recommend you come prepared with a 4x4 vehicle that can handle this kind of terrain. There was no bathroom (as stated) so make sure you come prepared. The soaking tub was straight out of a dream ~ hot spring water that never ran out, and blue twinkle lights for when the sun went down. The bed was very comfortable, and the stars were INSANE! The host was very responsive, but make sure you save her written directions because there is no service at the site and for the last 45 minutes of the drive up. Thank you Andrea!

Homemade yurt with an extremely comfortable bed - bring your own blankets!Amazing soaking tub, comfortably fits two, with hot, spring water!

The yurt was super cute and we enjoyed the tub. However it’s a super remote location and absolutely not worth going unless you have AWD or 4-wheel drive. If the weather is bad I also don’t recommend. Bed was very comfortable- if you’re looking for a totally remote weekend, it’s a good spot.

Private and secluded- the bathtub was a dream! The yurt is well insulated and so it stays pretty warm. Remember to pack everything you need (other than firewood and water both of which were plentiful). The water spout is a little tough to find.

Definitely recommend driving in during daylight hours.
