Welcome to Sweet Retreat and Yurt Farm! Come experience a romantic, private four season yurt experience in a secluded piece of nature on our 14 acre property, enveloped by a variety of tall trees and distant view of the farms pasture and barn. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway for two, a family or group experience, the yurt provides 492 sq. ft. of comfortable space with top quality amenities, including Wi-Fi, and is available for all seasons: rain, snow or sunshine. There is a viewable pond and two running brooks on the property. We have Nigerian Dwarf goats, numerous chicken breeds and ducks. When we are available, you may interact with the farm animals if desired. The small town of Mason has a number of homesteads/farms nearby, a fine dining restaurant, a Maple House and restaurant, a venue for live concerts of talented singers/bands, and a swimmable quarry. PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION IN FULL BEFORE BOOKING WITH US. BOOKING THE PROPERTY ARE ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND RULES. Be mindful that we have multiple animals on our little farm including a barn cat, dog, goats, chickens, and ducks. As such, you may hear animal noises. However, the barn is approximately 400 feet away from the yurt where most of the animals stay. We have made extensive efforts to make your stay as comfortable as possible. However, the Yurt is a “Glamping” (Glorified Camping) experience. As such, here are some following considerations before you decide to book our yurt: 1. The walkway from the parking area to the yurt is approximately 150 yards long over a grassy path that can be wet, uneven and in the winter covered with snow or ice. Wear appropriate footwear. 2. The yurt is heated by a wood stove. You will need to build a fire and maintain it in the wood stove to keep warm in the winter months. We provide the tools, the wood and the training for those who need it. If you are away from the yurt all day, you will need to restart the fire to get the yurt back to a comfortable temperature. 3. Yurt guests exclusively have access to the outhouse lavatory for all bathroom needs. We utilize a composting bag/toilet in the outhouse, and guests must follow the posted instructions related to its use. 4. The outhouse is NOT insulated. It can be cold in the winter. 5. The outdoor shower is available for guest use during the warm months (approximately May through October, or when outdoor temperatures are consistently above freezing). We DO NOT have running water to the shower area. Solar shower bags are provided. 6. We DO NOT have hot running water in the yurt. There is up to an 18 gallon container over the sink for cleansing needs, washing dishes, etc…Refills may be required. Guests may boil water in the kettle for hot water needs. 7. Guests are welcome to use all items in the kitchenette. The kitchenette has all of your cooking needs. 8. The yurt is located on a farm. Although unlikely, guests may encounter associated sounds and smells related to raising animals during their stay with us. If you proceed to book a stay, you can expect to have a unique lodging experience that will detach you from the routine and reconnect you to nature and those you are experiencing it with. Careful consideration has been taken to design and furnish the space to provide you with a comfortable, memorable experience. From the artistic pieces, to the memory foam top bed, cast iron wood stove, and outdoor fire-pit; to name a few. Clean towels, linens, robes and slippers (robes and slippers are provided during the winter months and slippers are for you to keep) are provided, and there are extra blankets stored in the chest and stools for those extra cold nights. The composting outhouse is just a few steps away from the door. It has a skylight and a solar lamp during night time hours. The yurt area is private, but you may experience wildlife such as deer, fox, bunny or other sightings. You may see our goats in the fenced pasture from a healthy distance, but you may choose to approach them at the fence, if desired. You will get a sense of what homesteading life is like in rural New Hampshire. Cell carriers may be spotty. AT&T works best. Wi-Fi is provided with speeds up to 140 mbps. Currently there isn't a television provided. You may bring a laptop or other screened device to stream your favorite television shows. You must provide your own subscription account/login. DOGS: When you book, please confirm these rules and be sure your reservation includes your pup. > One dog maximum > Your dog is at least one year old and FULLY potty trained > He or she gets along with other dogs - we have a dog and cat here > Dog stays off all furniture - this is important to us and to our future guests; please note that we charge a minimum additional $250 cleaning fee if this rule is broken > Please bring bags and pick up waste > Dog stays with you when you go out and is not left alone in the space COLD SEASON VISITORS: In your reservation request, please acknowledge you have read and understood the three important points below. The yurt is a wonderful and cozy place to be in the cold season. That said, there are some unique aspects to staying in the yurt during winter that you should review and feel good about: 1. Making fire in a wood stove is an enjoyable feeling, AND, you must do it well in order to stay warm. If you have never worked with a wood stove before, plan on reading the detailed instructions we have left you. We would also highly recommend you come before dark rather than late at night. 2. There is a lovely outdoor shower space outside the yurt, next to the outhouse. It is useable anytime during the year; however, during the cold months it will likely be intolerable. We DO NOT have running water to the shower space area. During the warmer months of the year, solar water shower bags are provided. Soap and Towels are provided. 3. The yurt is about 400 feet (a 2 minute flat walk) from your parking spot. That said, it's an easy walk. WHAT TO BRING: We provide all bedding, linens, pillows, towels, robes and slippers (robes and slippers are provided during winter months only and slippers are for you to keep). We provide all of the basic bbq/cooking supplies. There is a coffee/Nespresso machine provided, including coffee and coffee pods, snacks and fresh farm eggs when in season. We encourage you to bring appropriate clothing and foot wear for the season you visit, including jackets, shoes, beach towels if you will be swimming in the summer, slippers and cozy layers for the cold months, and foods and drinks (coffee is provided). If you are interested in streaming your favorite shows, we recommend you bring your screened devices (i.e. laptop). SUMMER VISITORS: We can provide suggestions in our area for great hikes, swimming holes, paddling spots, and the best ice cream stands. There is a viewable pond on the property; however, there is No Swimming allowed in the pond. The yurt will have a window A/C installed to keep you cooler during the hot summer months. Two Night Minimum on Friday and/or Saturday.

Hygge! This yurt has been so thoughtfully put together. All the pieces seem to have been hand selected for it's place here, we appreciate the effort and heart that went into this beautiful retreat. Some highlights for us is being able to stay in an area that is within 2 hours of the hustle of everyday work life, but still able to feel we've been swept away from the city. Love the goats, we really enjoyed being able to pet them with Hector and interact with the farm animals. We really appreciate having our dog welcomed to the yurt. This weekend was cold, there is about 3 inches of snow already on the ground, adding to the charm. The woodstove was absolutely key to keeping warm, we didn't require the Big Buddy to use, nice that it was available though, we are use to New England cold weather. I would say the highs were in the high teens to low 20s and we had some single digit temps at night.....the little buddy was nice to take to the outhouse and the outdoor fire pit was enjoyable. Thanks Hector, now we want a yurt farm with Nigerian dwarf goats 🙂 . Hector provides all the amenities you need to pack minimally, if you'd like.

Wonderful yurt and great hosts
We had an amazing time in the yurt. The entire place was beautiful, the yurt was big and had everything you needed. We stayed during a cold day where temps went down to ~25F but felt nice and cozy in the yurt. The goats, chickens and ducks are very cute and there’s lots of walking areas near the yurt so plenty to do if you’re into that. Hector was very nice and friendly. He greeted us and chatted with us for a bit and let us know good info about the surrounding area. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Everything and more at the Yurt!
Wow! We could not have asked for a better experience at the yurt. It was such a welcoming and cozy space, and Hector was so thoughtful in what he provided — farm fresh eggs, local pastries, and even a soft and comfy doggy bed for our pup! The yurt itself was very spacious, comfortable, and had everything you might need: fridge, microwave, sink, even an air fryer! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud with its memory foam topper. The wood stove kept the yurt nice and warm, and would likely be comfortable in almost any weather. The rest of the site was also great! It has maybe the nicest compost toilet I have ever seen, and the grill and outdoor fire pit really give you plenty of outdoor space to enjoy as well. We also loved having the goats, chickens, and ducks nearby. Our city dog didn’t know what to make of the goats! We loved our stay and would gladly stay again in the future — we’re actually already thinking about when we might be able to go back!
