We have created this place and lived here for over 17 years. Our two boys who are 14 and 17 love to play and create their own piece of heaven. We desire to share it with others and allow them to see the magic of yurt living. We also live in a 30-ft yurt on the property that is our special place. Learn more about this land: This 14-foot yurt is a short walk of about 50 yards from the guest parking. You will pass our 30-ft family yurt going to your own private space. The property has a great remote feeling and has space to move around. There is a queen custom futon bed and room for a child or two on the floor if desired. There is a small gravity feed water system for the yurt and your own private outhouse. Plenty of wood for you to stay warm by the fire and an outdoor shower shared by our family. The kitchen comes with pots and pans, plates, etc. and a few extras. You will hear the sounds of nature and North Idaho at times out in your yurt as trains pass through the valley to Canada. We are 1.5 miles away from the tracks. If you are into being independent and open to new experiences then we would love to share our space with you. Please park just past the garage on the cedar path by the cluster of trees. Recommended for you to bring a headlamp and outdoor slippers to walk to the outhouse or shower during your stay. We have towels and a robe at the yurt for your use. We can provide a Therm-a-rest bed for your child if needed.

I’m coming back
Again I had an incredible time at the little Yurt in the woods. The title may have the word little but don’t let it fool you. This little Yurt has a Huge personality of its own. The hosts, both husband and wife, make it accommodating and welcoming.

Yurt outside sandpoint
Comfy bedding in Todd’s yurt. Other reviews mentioned about Todd’s dog barking upon arrival. Luckily we are dog people, this dog is actually friendly and just wanted to sniff and say hi. She was good with our dog too. Outhouse is an outhouse but the yurt was great.

A couple nights with the deer
My Mom stayed in this yurt for a week back in May and took me here the first week in September for a couple night and it was amazing! While staying there you are surrounded by beautiful forest with all the amenities you would want. At dusk and into the night we had a family of deer come by the camp which was incredible to experience. Also, during our hikes around the area the family dog would join us and was a great companion. The overall experience was amazing and I feel completely recharged. My Mom and I will both be staying here again.

I loved staying at this sweet, homey yurt. I had a peaceful and serene experience, and it was rejuvenating to stay here in the midst of mostly camping. A great place to breathe deep and be with nature, while being cozy and comfortable.

Magical Forest Yurt Hideaway
We loved staying in the yurt. It was delightfully cozy with amazing views of the stars and very comfortable bed. Felt like a very magical forest hideaway. All the essentials are included in the yurt and some very cute touches to the outdoor seating area and beyond. Very close to a great swimming creek and some beautiful views of Idaho. Highly recommend.

Forest bathing and Canoeing
The land, the people, the yurt itself. What a wonderful grounding experience in nature, and what a magical place! Todd and Monica are so kind and hospitable. They have done an amazing job cultivating their land. Then, to share it with others is a very special thing. We even rented a canoe from Todd and went out to the Pack River inlet by Lake Pend Oreille for a bit! It was our first time but he gave us some tips. Just a heads up for the folks who aren't used to glamping, make peace with the outhouse and composting toilet experience, as well as the outdoor shower. It will change your perspective on how to live more simply, and you will feel invigorated being in harmony with the nature around you.

The yurt was cozy and well stocked, we loved the wood stove! It was so peaceful looking out into the forest and listening to the birds, and stargazing at night. The location feels remote but still close to tons of recreation and dining options. I would have liked to feel a little more secluded from the main yurt, but I think in spring/summer months the leaves would fill in the space a bit more than during our stay. Overall I would definitely recommend it and hope to return!

It was a quiet and peaceful place to stay and the location was beautiful. The family was kind, understanding, and helpful when I needed directions on how to get there. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. It was a wonderful retreat.

Optimal Relaxation
The setting was so relaxing, private, quiet, and peaceful. The yurt was very comfortable and well-appointed. Monica gave us ideas of places where we could put in our kayaks. It was a perfect retreat. Thanks so much.

Already planning our return trip...
Absolutely loved the yurt! Very comfortable and so relaxing! Easy to reach all of the great activities around the Sandpoint area, but offers a lot of privacy -- a beautiful spot nestled in the woods. Great hosts, too. Exceeded our expectations.

So unique and sweet! I felt safe and also primitive. The family who built this is sweet, comforting and gracious. Their dog Zelda is the cutest mix of guard dog and welcome committee. Anyways, I’d recommend this to anyone. Home away from home, Truly!

Lovely yurt experience
Todd’s yurt in the woods was wonderful! We had a lovely stay, just wished we had more time there and will be back another time. We were there during a recent wind storm, so when the power went out for a bit Monica went the extra step to bring us emergency candles for light. Great hospitality, but also a very independent and quiet stay. We also LOVE the fact that they are dog friendly. Be sure to take advantage of the outdoor shower - such a neat experience!

The yurt was wonderful! The directions Todd gave us were very easy to follow, and the yurt itself was just the best. It was very cozy and comfortable. My fiancé and I took the trip to enjoy a relaxing weekend away, and that’s exactly what we found at our yurt. They also supply everything you need to cook a meal and brew some coffee. I fully recommend staying a night or two (or more)!

We loved our stay!! I wish it had been longer. The atmosphere, simplicity, and quiet was wonderful. We were here during the winter so there was a lot of snow, and wished we had more time to explore around the property! We will definitely be coming back again and again in all seasons. Beautiful and perfect.

Weekend with S/O and dog
This place was amazing. Definitely everything we were hoping for. I stayed here for a weekend with my girlfriend and dog and were amazed by the quality of the site and the entire property. Just one fair warning, there are 2 dogs that live on this property that bark a lot and can be pretty loud. For the most part they were good with our dog but weren’t the friendliest. This definitely is not make or break for this site, I would recommend this place to a friend and would stay here again but that is just something to be aware of. Everything else was perfect and the hosts were very generous and great hosts.

What a great place to stay. The yurt is close by the renters place, but still feels extremely secluded! The hosts were really nice, while still allowing their guests to have privacy! 10/10 would recommend you make a stop here while in town if you get the chance!

Wonderful yurt life for a night
My husband and I stopped here on our way up to Banff for the night. It was beautiful. The yurt is not too far from downtown Sandpoint where we grabbed some dinner before heading up to the site. The directions given by the host were very specific and easy to follow and as a bonus our GPS lead us right there. When we arrived, we were greeted by the nice host family and their dog. After a quick meet and greet, we followed the fun wooden signs thru the woods a short distance to our private yurt. The yurt itself was magical. Everything you need for the night- a bed, small kitchen, and a small desk and chair. Very simple but perfect. A nice deck with some chairs and a table made for the perfect place for us to play some cards before bed. There is a small fire pit with wood provided as well out front of the yurt. The private outhouse was just a few steps from the yurt. There are windows in the outhouse that have you looking into the private woods while using which was a little odd at first. Overall, a wonderful place to stay if you are ever in the Sandpoint area. There is some occasional train sounds at times and some fun clucking chickens in the trees but that just adds to the fun! I would stay again if I ever find myself in the area.

Beautiful Yurt
The yurt was absolutely beautiful. Most everything you would need for your stay. Planning on coming back to see it all in the snow. I missed the part about paying up front for pets so I had to do that once I got there. Just make sure you read that when you book the reservation. Awesome hosts, plenty of hiking around, and a store minutes away if needed.

I will blame mother nature for some of the issues, but the trail to the yurt was icy and both my husband and I fell packing items to the location as you cannot park near where you stay. The snow was so high around the yurt that outdoor fires were impossible. The six gallon water container was down to only about a gallon when we got there . Luckily, we had brought our own 5 gallon water jugs as the process to fill the one that was there is more labor intensive when trying to navigate down icy trails. Also, if you have a mattress pad, bring it. The comforters and sheets are cozy and will keep you warm, but the futon is actually a foam pad on top of a piece of plywood. The area is beautiful and the yurt is homey, but small, especially as we had no ability to have a fire outdoors when we visited. Also, the listing says you can bring dogs, but it is not set up to collect a pet fee, so you have to indicate you are bringing three guests or prepare to bring cash to leave for the pet clean up fee. Also, the hosts have a dog who is off leash and like to roam the property, which is completely understandable, since it is her home. But if you plan on bringing your own dogs, plan to keep them on leash as Zelda likes to visit... a lot. But don't worry, she'll bark a lot to let you know she's nearby. All in all, it is a beautiful site-- it just wasn't what I had expected.
