The Light Center is easy to find even though it's off the beaten path. Rain that night was horrible but one of the staff (Andrew) came to ensure we had propane for heating the yurt and to check if we needed anything else. O'Dell the GSD is very calm and welcoming and he was fine with our kids. Folks using the trail that passes by the yurt were outgoing and personable. I imagine the land is an even better experience in the spring and we'll plan to return then for hiking and camping in the meadow across the creek.

My first time in a yurt

The red tail yurt was spacious and zen . We did a fire and Made s’mores for the traditional campout feel! The star garden was beautiful ~ we spent an hour under the glowing sky looking at constellations. In the morning did we some peaceful yoga, went for a walk in the woods, and said hello to chickens and goats ! It was a nice romantic trip away as a couple and I look forward to going back with the kids

Contemplative escape to nature

The Light Center is a lovely place to stay. It was the perfect halfway point on my long road-trip & just what I needed: nature, space to stretch, comfy place to sleep & a warm welcome. I was lucky enough to attend their full moon meditation! Everyone I met was so kind. The Yurt I stayed in is definitely more of a primitive camping experience (no electric, etc) but I loved the experience. I would love to stay again sometime. Thanks Robin & friends! 🤍

P.s don’t get there after dark like I did (I’m not a good road-trip planner) because it’s very difficult to navigate on the gravel country roads & adds unnecessary stress.

The whole property is great, the woods are magical with more butterflies, mushrooms and toads than I could have hoped for. Everyone on sure was warm,kind and welcoming. The yurts are great for those unsure about tent/primitive camping but want to reconnect to nature. Composting toilets and outdoor shower area well maintained Honestly can't wait to come back. I definitely recommend staying anywhere at The Light Center.
