The Tilted Hill Ranch is an 80-acre farm nestled in the Shenandoah Valley wine region. This untamed parcel is an experiment in tiny homes and off the grid living. We dreamed of living on an Alaskan TV show but fell in love with this forest getaway. Come play in the creek and hike miles of trails through giant mossy oaks and house sized granite boulders. Our farm is home to a whole family of animals and a great foundation for learning techniques to grow your own dreams.  We offer campstites, a yurt, and a cabin - so please review listings for specific amenity information. A stream runs Jan. - July but there are plenty of local spots full of rivers, lakes, and all the wine you can drink :) ask for recommendations after booking! Our fire pits have all been replaced with propane fire rings as camp fires are illegal in our area from June thru November. We have also provide enough propane for your stay :) Our guests love it here: "The yurt was so cozy and stocked with everything wr could possibly need. My son and I enjoyed exploring the property during the day. At night we snuggled in front of the wood stove and played with the Lincoln Logs and Roasted or Toasted game. Everything was clean including the outhouse. We would love to stay here again sometime."Nestled among the oaks lives a peaceful Yurt in the heart of Fairplay wine country. Our 30’ Yurt is a perfect getaway for those looking to unplug and unwind. Staring out of one of the 6 windows you’ll have spectacular views of foothills splendor. From the deck you can hear ample wildlife as you are immersed among the pines. Relax, meditate, and be one with nature. Outside you will find a propane grill with side burner and a propane fire pit to keep you cozy on your perfect camping evening. Bring your pets for $25 :)

Return to the Yurt
This is the second time I camp here with friends for a birthday camping trip. The yurt, property, and hosts are awesome!! This is one of my favorite properties on hipcamp and makes me want to buy land and put a yurt on it. The walking path down is short, easy, and even has solar lights to light the way. Great place for a recharge and catch-up with friends!!

Beautiful and Peaceful!!
Beautiful and Peaceful!! Stars are night were magical. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Every moment of our stay was delightful!! A charming touch of candles and a woodstove provided a cozy ambiance that kept us warm. Enjoyed strolling to the creek early morning and exploring the property. Looking forward to coming back again!

Lovely weekend for two plus 🐶
We absolutely loved our stay. We aren’t really campers and the lovely, detailed yurt made it easy to work with no water or electricity! We loved the plentiful candles and wood burning fireplace to keep us cozy and various trails to keep us busy. Our dog was so happy to explore and be the only pup around in the off season. Thanks, we’ll be back!

Camping with the entire family of 8
The entire family had a great time at this yurt. The temperature got pretty cold when we went so the fireplace in the Yurt was a perfect remedy for that. I wasn’t aware of the downhill walk to the yurt so if you have a lot of things like us a family of 8. We had to take several trips up and down the about 10-15 min walk to the yurt. If they had a service to bring our luggage down with a Mule vehicle or ATV with trailer I would have paid the extra for the lift there and back. Other than that we had plenty of propane to cook our food on this serene adventure.

2 suburban moms loved this place!
This was a great experience, especially for 2 middle aged suburban moms who were aching to get away from it all! The yurt is beautiful, clean and so comfortable. We took sleeping bags, but there were clean sheets, pillows and blankets if that's what you prefer. Justin was quickly responsive when we needed a new propane tank for the grill, and we were able to get coffee and a beautiful breakfast going thanks to those grills! He gave us great tips about local wineries and towns. We just stayed close and explored around the property-there's nothing better for the soul than total silence (save for some birds) and soaking in some sunshine. But do be prepared for the walk from the parking area/stable to the yurt-I read the other reviews but still didn't wrap my brain around it. It's hilly, and maybe a 5+ (fairly steep down hill) to 10+ (uphill) minute walk when hauling stuff. Totally managable, but a bit challenging with a wagon and a rolling ice chest and whatever else you might bring. It's worth it though...so worth it. The weather changed overnight and we woke to a gentle rain-so lovely. I hope to go back soon.

Secluded yurt via small hike
The yurt was a lovely private escape for a big group. I was there with a group of 3 and we have plenty of room to grill, play board games, use the outhouse, and enjoy the stars. The only downside was a hike to get to the yurt so pack lightly or be ready to make a bunch of trips to and from your car. We went during a heat wave and was given a great recommendation to a swimming hole that was 15 minutes away. There are a ton of wineries if you are interested in that on the way to the yurt. We appreciated all of the candles, water, and bug spray that was provided. Will definitely recommend this place for all
