Talk a walk in the woods along the southern branch of the Waits River and find yourself at a rustic and beautiful yurt.  This stands alone in a small clearing with surrounded by the Vermont forest.  This has a low key vibe where you can listen to bird song, sit by a fire, or take a walk along our many trails.    

The land has over a half a mile of river frontage and several streams, a beautiful varied forest, rambling topography, and plenty of wildlife. Many lessons in tracking may be found as whitetails, moose, black bear, fishers, bobcats, porcupine, coyotes, foxes, mink, ermine, snowshoe hare, wild turkey, and ruffled grouse, are seen and tracked. Often times we are also lucky enough to catch a hawk circling the pasture and to hear the barred owls calls in the darkness of night. The diversity of plants, trees, and animals make this an ideal place to explore the natural world.  

The yurt is a 5-10 minute walk into the woods.  

It has two full size beds inside, with room for folks to lay a bed roll out on the floor if wanted for.  There is a woodstove to keep things warm in the cold months (do contact me if you plan to use it). There is a large picnic table outside, along with an outdoor firepit to cozy up to.

We are an active school, with classes often taught on the weekends.  The yurt is private to you, but expect to potentially see folks walking to class, the outhouses or tenting in the general area if you plan to be here on a summer weekend.

Staying in the Yurt was perfect. It was exactly as described in the photos and description. We were able to stay warm with the wood stove, and plenty of wood available for a small fee.

We loved walking around the land and exploring. The pit toilet was clean and the kitchen had everything you need. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Staying on Sarah's land was wonderful. We lucked out with some great weather giving us ample opportunity to walk the trails. The yurt was well insulated and we did not need to use the woodstove. If we did not have our own stove with us, we would have been grateful for the outdoor kitchen which has a stove, stink with hot water, refrigerator, and an assortment of pots and utensils.

We loved camping in Sarah's yurt it was spacious and clean the wood stove is great
Sarah was great making sure we had everything we needed the property is beautiful and does provide outhouses and an outdoor kitchen fortunate for us we did not have to use them because we brought our own stuff but it's great to know the stuff was there in case we needed it
We went in October it was so quiet and great to unwind off-grid

The yurt is so nicely nestled in the woods and feels very private. The ground is mowed and the picnic table is great.

Awesome experience. Sarah, Brad and Ash were a wonderful host. It was very cathartic for all of us. We wanted a chill weekend and we got it!

Sarah’s land was absolutely breathtaking! My partner and I had a fantastic time exploring and hanging by the fire. Sarah was an incredible host and went above and beyond. She even got my partner and I cupcakes for our birthdays! I can’t recommend this place enough. 10/10 would stay here again.

Yurt with skylight

Had a great "February vacation" break in the yurt. It was spacious but the wood stove was able to keep it warm enough despite the 10-degree night, and Sarah left enough wood to maintain warm-enough (I had multiple layers on) temps over my 2-night-2-day stay, with minor supplementation with scavenged wood. The yurt's skylight provided plenty of light during the day (til it got covered with snow) and some lights rigged to a solar panel provided some lighting at night to supplement my lamps. The bed was comfy (and again -- wood stove kept it warm enough that I didn't need to sleep near it, I could use the bed) and Sarah had left some extra blankets. There were a number of pieces of furniture, including some chairs. Outhouse was an easy walk despite the snow. The land was lovely, particularly the part-frozen/fast-running river, and hiking the logging roads around the property left plenty of room to roam without fear of getting lost. The structures from Roots School students were fun to find.

Woodstove was easy to operateWindows and skylight made it nice & bright during the dayYurt in the forestSunset was lovely. My phone camera wasn't able to take a pic of the night sky, but once the clouds cleared the star viewing was fantastic. Dusk brought barred owl calls, plus some other birds I couldn't identify. Plenty of assorted animal tracks in the woods.

Whew, you did have some cold nights! I'm so glad that the yurt worked well for you and that you were able to enjoy the land. It was a pleasure to have you here and I very much so enjoyed talking. I will never think about the moon and the tides the same again!

Lovely yurt near a river

Highly recommended! A really lovely place to stay. The woodstove kept the very spacious yurt warm despite the late fall snowstorm. The sound of the river on the edge of the property was soothing at night. Nice woods to walk around in too. Sarah was friendly and helpful when we got there. You'll see various structures that are part of the Roots School of traditional skills that they run there.

The yurt form the front.Like to sleep on top?This wood stove does the trick.The skylight is divine!

We had a lovely time! The yurt is so magical and cozy. We stayed during one of the first frosts of the year but the wood stove kept us toasty all night. The property is beautiful. Highly recommend for a forest getaway!
