I grew up on this land hiking the gorge, playing in waterfalls and riding horses in the pasture. After traveling throughout Europe, the Middle East and India and living in San Francisco I came back home to build a house here so my children could also experience the beauty of living close to nature. Family members helped to build the yurt which originally served as the school house for my children's gardening program. My dad and I are avid gardeners and orchardists. It's our pleasure to offer warm hospitality to travelers seeking a unique yurt experience!

Unique Garden Yurt w/ Waterfall
This may be my favorite place I have yet to stay! the yurt is fully furnished and with an entire bathroom and kitchen! Michelle is one of the friendliest hosts I've yet to encounter and makes you feel right at home! Unique Garden Yurt is only 15 minutes from Ithaca NY, the perfect spot that's close to the city but enough outside that you feel like you're in your own world! It was the perfect winter get-away and I cannot wait to hopefully return in the spring! The wood-pellet fireplace makes the yurt feel oh so homey. Like you're in a fairytale. I wish I could have stayed longer!
