Enjoy some Glamping fun! We are only an hour away from both Soda Springs Ski Resort and Boreal Ski Resort. They have snow but usually, we have none or very little! Perfect place to overnight while skiing.

Come and enjoy nature in my yurt. You'll have plenty of space and privacy. If life seems overwhelming let nature and the great outdoors heal you.

This is also a great place for groups!

You'll enjoy the serenity of nature and the forest in a secluded tucked-away Yurt up in the mountains of Grass Valley. You'll have lots of privacy and space. The main house is completely separate... 150 feet away.

Propane fire pit to create a fire-safe and memorial stay.

Super easy to find. 25 minutes from Hwy 80 at Colfax. Located off of Hwy 174, and only 20 minutes from the historical downtowns of Grass Valley/Nevada City.

It's located so that you have easy access to both the Yuba river and the American river. And in winter the ski resorts.

For larger groups we have plenty of room for a drive-through RV parking, Tents and room for multiple cars for parking. 

So this is a super great getaway for groups. Singles and couples as well! A special weekend retreat, group event or family trip is easily accommodated. Plenty of parking right outside the yurt. Sleep inside the Yurt or also pitch tents right outside the Yurt in a flat open meadow space if you're a bigger group.  

The Yurt comes with a super cozy king-size bed and a futon to accommodate larger groups. Both are designed to sleep on top of with blankets or your sleeping bags. 

Big picnic table is located right outside the yurt and another big table for food prep.

There's a camp kitchen with an outdoor stainless steel sink and stainless steel table with plenty of space for food prep. Running water is right there at the well house. Cookware, pots and pans, utensils and an electric burner stove to cook with are provided.

Bask under the breathtaking stars at night and feel the healing effect of nature all around you during your stay. Hike, bike, swim, site-see and don’t forget to visit the Yuba River! So many things are available to you. Historic downtown Nevada City and Grass Valley. Both have cute downtown areas. Visit the historical Empire Mine, The National Hotel or the Nevada Theater (the first Theater in California).

Or just chill up here. It's nice and quiet!

Enjoy the simplicity. An outdoor shower, bath and compost toilet are available. If you need to use the facilities in the house that can be arranged.

As an additional service, schedule an Astrology reading to make your stay here an extraordinary and transforming experience. Please text me ahead of time to schedule your appointment. 

The reading gives you great insights into your life, what your soul's intentions are and current astrological influences to help you make better decisions. Included you'll receive a yearly report and composite relationship report after the reading via email.

I'm also available to facilitate a customized private women's retreat. You can visit my site at annathea.org to find out more.

For these reasons, a stay here at my Earth Castle Retreat in the Yurt would be an amazing experience.

There are many many wonderful things about this Yurt and the surrounding nature, the simple and efficient amenities provided, the wonderful bathtub and the cozy pillows in the cozy yurt where you and your loved ones can snuggle and enjoy nature together or the ease with which you can access Grass Valley and Nevada City.

By far the greatest amenity is Anna herself. The space reflects the love care and work she puts into her home and temple space. Her readings are highly recommended as her wisdom and spirit are radiant and true. I cannot thank her enough for such a gorgeous retreat into nature and self awareness - it was a healing stay.

I would absolutely tell my friends to check this place out. I myself would love to visit here again and again as well as having a strong call to work with Anna in the future in her capacities as a healing channel and guide. Thank you!

Beautiful private and quiet site encircled with tall trees!!! Very clean large Yurt with heater. Our pets and us had a wonderful time playing around the site and going for a hikes on her property to a creek and to drive to the river which is only minutes away. Anna is very welcoming and a pleasure to meet! We will be happy to reserve the Yurt again anytime of the year!!!!! THANK YOU ANNA-THEA!!!!! Sincerely John Chaplin and Robbie Lou camp crew

Perfect spot to spend the weekend! It ended up snowing which made the trip cold but so, so beautiful. Anna-Thea’s property was gorgeous and she was very accommodating. Two of us camped in the yurt and the other two in a sprinter van and there was plenty of space for our dog to meander.

This yurt stay was MAGICAL! Anna-Thea is such a gem of a human! I had an astrology reading, and I’d recommend that to any future guests, as well. We stayed for 5 nights, and trust me when I say that I did not want to leave- neither did my dog!

It was the perfect place to reset our nervous system(s), and spend time in nature. The directions provided were on point, there is plenty of cell service (Verizon), the compost toilet is easy to use, and the outdoor shower has wonderful hot water and plenty of pressure.

We will be back as soon as time allows!

Had an amazing time. Anna-Thea was an excellent host and did not hesitate to offer additional accommodations. Me and my girlfriend nicknamed the yurt “lil uzi yurt”

We LOVED it here. This was our first HIPCamp experience and it certainly set the bar very high! The yurt is spacious, clean and beautiful inside. You're on what feels like your own plot of land amongst the trees and looking out into the forest. For kids there's plenty of space to explore, play with rocks and sticks and feel free. There is an awesome outdoor kitchen with burners, pots, pans, utensils. cups and plates. The compost toilet is super easy to use. Everything is very well labeled and the place was not hard to find at all. Anna-Thea was incredibly friendly and responsive. She checked in on us and provided us with water. The heat wave hit 111 degrees this weekend! We were glad to be close enough to the YUBA and ice cream :) There definitely are a lot of bees and mosquitos here. Just somethign to be aware of if you are skittish around bees. They do swarm as soon as the food gets going. As long as you let them do their thing they won't bother you. I highly reccommend this place to families with kids, or groups. There's plenty of space for lots of tents. Thank you Anna-Thea!

Anna-Thea was such a lovely person, was incredibly communicative before we arrived, and helped us out with some last minute things when we were there. The yurt is sweet, the bed is suuuper soft, there's electricity, the outdoor shower is excellent, and there's a bucket toilet.

There are a few things that we wished we'd known ahead of time, that hopefully you can use to prepare better for your own trip there:
--Bring your own drinking water!! (There's just a jug filled with water; it's definitely not enough for a group or for multiple days. The water at the kitchen sink is *not* potable, and it's not marked as such.)
--Bring your own propane for the camp stove (there is a 2-burner camping stove but no gas). Check with Anna-Thea about the size / connection needed.
--Kitchen tools = there's a large pan, a tiny pot, a spatula, a slotted spoon, silverware, mugs, and a few other utensils.
--FYI: There is a 20-minute one-lane / one-way-at-a-time construction traffic stop on 174 just south of You Bet Rd. as of July 2021.
