Experience an authentic and rustic, secluded glamping experience on a beautiful Farm Animal Sanctuary with horses, donkeys, sheep, goats and potbellied pigs grazing beneath you. A true animal lover's heaven on earth.

We named this The Lady Asha Yurt/Treehouse after a beautiful soul that we adopted from Longmeadow Rescue Ranch here in Franklin County in July of 2019 when we first decided to go for it and become an official sanctuary.  We adopted their 2 most elderly horses, Quincy and Lady Asha.  Quincy is still here with us and we think he is about 40 years old, very old for a horse.  Lady Asha was loved and spoiled by us for 14 months and we want our first glamping site to be in her honor and memory.

This site is an elevated platform amongst the trees with a 16 foot around by 10 foot tall bell tent. There are 2 full size futons with mattresses and linens and pillows, and a queen size air mattress available and a child cot available as necessary. All linens are provided. The yurt is also furnished with a table, chairs and floor cushions for eating and game playing.  

PLEASE NOTE:  The listing says 4 people, with 3 additional people and 2 vehicles allowed.  If you have more than 4 people, we provide a tent at the same site, as 7 people cannot sleep comfortably inside the yurt unless you are 2 adults with small children.  We would like to make the Lady Asha available to larger families, so we've found that providing a tent for children to sleep in has been a fun solution.  The tent is about 100 yards from the yurt platform.

Situated on our 27 acre farmstead, the camping area is a separate entrance away from the host residence, boasting abundant trees and a year round creek, wildflowers, bird watching opportunities, hummingbirds galore, free range chickens, ducks and geese, and a turkey! Each evening, listen to the coyotes howl, the owls hoot, turkeys gobble, crickets chirp, and frogs croak.  There are paths cut through the pastures for walking, and the kids can ride their mountain bikes if they like.  There is a well marked hiking trail around the edge of the property for those who would like a little more of a challenge.

There is an electric fireplace in the yurt so this can also be used during the cooler months, or year round for the hardy souls!

There is also an outlet and a large fan for the warmer months.

The front porch has a cafe table and chairs. Also a table for preparing food. There is a weber grill cooking, you will have to bring your own charcoal and lighter fluid. There is also a larger fire pit in front of the yurt platform with two camping chairs, and a picnic table. You may also use the large bonfire pit if you prefer.

There will be a strict check-out time of 12 noon for this listing, with check-in after 2 pm.

Please keep in mind that the front platform of the yurt is 5 feet off the ground and railings are not sufficient to prevent young children from falling.

A 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended to get to this listing, but usually 2 wheel drive is sufficient. There is a small creek bed to cross. You can also just park in the lower pasture and we can help bring your gear to the yurt.

We also have 6 tent or drive up vehicle campsites, so you may be sharing the farm with other guests, but this listing is very secluded from the others.

Other things to note:

Please read the listing thoroughly.

The animals are all very friendly, but they are animals and unpredictable.  There are also very large animals and it's easy to get stepped on.  Appropriate footwear is recommended.  If for ANY reason ANYONE feels unsafe with any of the animals, we have areas to separate them from the campers.  PLEASE do not hesitate to let your hosts know if you have any concerns.  You can communicate with us through the Hipcamp communication number, or if we aren't outside there is a side door with solar lights and a sign and you can knock on that door.

With the gates, the rule is if it's open, please leave it open, or if it's closed, please close it behind you.  If an animal escapes, please just let me know as soon as possible but be assured, it isn't the first time!!

We have a very friendly lab mix (?) named Tie Dye who greets visitors with me.  He is used to greeting other dogs.  We have 4 other dogs, Annie is a white American Bulldog mix and barks ALOT.  She is also very friendly, but we try to only let one dog out a time because they sometimes get a pack mentality and we are very careful.  The other 3 dogs usually stay up by the house, Chloe is brown and is Tie Dye's sister, Tug is a black lab/ shepard mix and Tie Dye and Chloe's daddy.  You probably won't see him, he lives for playing fetch and stays up by the house. George is the patriarch, an elderly lab mix so he also doesn't go far from the house.   All the dogs are friendly with humans.

Truly magical place if you are an animal lover! Did a cold weather overnight in the yurt - made lots of animal friends - really enjoyed walking and exploring by the creek, as well - the hammocks were also super peaceful. Will definitely be back!

Wow! I love this place so much!!! There were so many animals, I was so full of JOY!! They are everywhere and I loved it:)
The stay was also really peaceful and quiet. It was so lovely to have this yurt space for the night. There was a fire, cooking supplies to make an apple cobbler (the horses smelled it and totally came to check it out!!!), and a heater in the yurt. This trip was such a wonderful glamping moment. The property is also huge and I discovered a beautiful creek. I really fell inlove with Susan’s land and I’m so happy I made it here. I can’t wait for next time :)

It was great to have all of the animals around, and so convenient to stay in the Lady Asha yurt. The host, Susan thought of everything! My kids didn’t want to leave.

Wow. This trip was truly one of a kind. I will remember it forever. I camped in the yurt with a few girls for my 30th birthday. This is the perfect spot for any nature lover. We enjoyed all the animals. They were all so sweet and fun to be around. We hiked down to the creek and even though it was a little chilly, we dipped our toes in and had an incredible time. There is no doubt that I and many friends will be returning. Susan provided everything we needed. She truly was the best host we could ask for. We had privacy, but she also was there if we had any questions about her rescue animals or if we needed anything. Only an hour from St. Louis makes this an absolute must for any person in the city trying to get away for a bit. The stars were shining at night and we could even see the Milky Way bands. Highly recommend. I would give 11/10 stars.

This was truly a great overnight Yurt camping experience inclusive of an attentive host. My friend and I enjoyed watching a gorgeous sunrise on the horizon while sipping coffee by the fire pit & listening to the roosters crow. The hummingbirds enjoyed breakfast at the Yurt Deck feeder and the friendly farm animals roamed all about !

Lady Asha was a perfect getaway for my group. All the extras that were supplied made all the difference, from games to silverware, it saved me a lot of space when packing. The animals were so cool and friendly. The creek was fun to explore and cool off. 10 out of 10 would recommend a d will definitely be back. Thanks so much Susan for all that you do!

Susan was a great host! We got there a little later than I hoped for but she was there at the gate waiting for us as promised. She told us about the animals and where we would be exactly. She answered every single question we had for her and there were a lot we we had 7 campers. Our children loved all the animals that visited us and that we visited while there. My favorite part was that the horses joined us both night for a late night camp fire as they grazed in front of us. Susan came and greeted us the first morning we were there and she was a delight. She told us about how her site came about and then answered all the questions we had. We can’t wait to book another trip to the yurt. It was awesome!!!
