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 bathtub and 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 in 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 two robes at the yurt for your use. We can provide a Therm-a-rest bed for your child if needed.

We had the best time staying at this small yurt in the woods! The hosts were super friendly, and you meet them right away because you pass their home yurt on the way to your yurt. You are close to Sandpoint, so it's an easy drive to go get dinner and drinks in town. Also an ideal location after a long day at Schweitzer mountain! The yurt was small but filled with everything you need: a queen size bed, wood burning stove, and a fully stalked kitchen. The bathroom is outside in it's own outhouse, but it's only steps away from the yurt. And the outside shower is right behind the main yurt. Perfect place to rest, be out in nature, but also close to a fun tourist town! Highly recommend!
Our stay at Todd's property was amazing. The snowy landscape was absolutely magical, and the yurt was the perfect cozy environment for chilly winter evenings. The place was stocked with all the essentials, which was wonderful when I realized that I forgot my toothbrush! There's also so much to do nearby. We spent an afternoon at Schweitzer Mountain, and wandered around Sandpoint for a while. (I highly recommend 2nd Avenue Pizza!) Thanks again to Todd and family, we'll definitely be coming back!
We sure enjoyed our stay in the yurt. It is certainly in a beautiful setting, surrounded by birch trees and with a place set up for a camp fire. Todd was very accommodating, setting up a place for our older boys to pitch their tent.
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.
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.
We loved this little yurt! It felt very private and tucked away, was clean and well cared for, and made for an excellent getaway. Hosts were communicative, helpful, and very friendly. We especially loved reading on the porch, huckleberry picking on the property, and the beautiful outdoor shower. Highly recommend!
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.
