Learn more about this land: This comfortable and spacious yurt is located on the 30-acre property of the historic Paisley Mill along the Teeswater river. With three large windows, a dome skylight, and wool felt insulation, the yurt provides a wonderful "glamping" experience. There is a double bed and a single bed in the yurt along with a cooler, table, chairs, and storage space. In the future there will be solar power, but right now the lighting available is by a battery powered lantern (provided). Next to the yurt is a picnic table, fire pit, and a sawdust toilet. There are basic utensils, plates, bowls, pots and pans available in the yurt. Bring your own: camp stove, water, bedding, pillows Important to Note: The only heating source is a wood stove. You need to be comfortable using a wood stove safely to stay at this yurt. While the yurt site only a short distance from the main mill residence, it is secluded and offers a beautiful private camping space. The town of Paisley is only a 10 minute walk from the yurt. There is a grocery store, bank, LCBO, and a few really delicious restaurants in Paisley. The yurt is a 20 minute drive from Lake Huron and the beautiful beach towns of Southhampton and Port Elgin. You will love visiting nearby MacGregor Point and Inverhuron Provincial Park with their beautiful walking trails and beaches.

So much better during winter time!
We loved how private the location is despite actually just being less then 300 meters away from the nearest neighbor. We stayed during a weekend when 20-30 cm of snow was forecasted. The yurt kept us warm the whole time. We had a great time hiking and snowshoeing around the property. Our daughter enjoyed the games and books offered at the yurt as well. We will surely be back for another season. We'll bring kayaks next time.

Yurt stay over a rainy new years
We loved staying in Emily's yurt! 5 stars. Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects, and she really outdid herself with details within the yurt that really created the serenity we were looking for. Would recommend

The yurt is in a great location. The winter landscape was beautiful. We enjoyed snowshoeing on the old rail trail close by. Looking forward to our next visit.

We had a lovely time at the Yurt at the end of October. The setting was beautiful - nestled in the trees on the banks of the river. We loved falling asleep at night looking at the stars through the skylight,. There was ample wood to keep the stove going, which kept us cozy through the night. A great little spot, within a 10 minute walk of downtown Paisley.

This was our 3rd time at the yurt, and first time in the fall. The colours were gorgeous! It was as cozy as ever. Such a perfect spot to enjoy a quiet corner of nature with the delicious amenities of a lovely town a short walk away.

An absolutely wonderful experience
What a wonderful space—cozy yet spacious, bright, clean, well-stocked and beautifully situated. Our family of four — two adults and two young kids—enjoyed our time so much, and would love to return some day. It was the first time any of us had stayed in a yurt and it won’t be the last. Upon telling my son we were leaving soon he frowned and said “awww, I will miss the yurt!” Thanks for sharing this space!

First Yurt experience and we had high expectations. Happily we were not disappointed. Directions were good but don't miss that Paisley sign which works if you are coming from the south west. My Honda had no problem with the drive to the yurt. Super comfortable sleep and were most impressed with the stocked hutch just in case you forgot this or that. Lots of excellent wood so really enjoyed cooking on the fire. The hammock provided was wonderfully relaxing. Nature everywhere. No news for 2 and half days. So happy to have our dog welcomed and he enjoyed sniffing around and it was so nice to have a safe place. Have to mention the sawdust toilet facilities. Excellent! I am going to give this experience a 10 out of 10 and this gal is fussy! Thank you so much Emily, we will most certainly be back.

We had a wonderful stay at the yurt! Emily was a great host and easy to contact! We had to have the wood stove on at night to keep our baby warm and it worked out fantastic. Everything we needed was there and clean. Our dog really enjoyed himself. Would have loved a little path and area to be cut down to the river so we could have sat there and enjoyed the view but it was still beautiful. We brought our own grate and cooked over the fire which was easy peasy. We would definitely love to go back ☺️

Loved every second of this Yurt
What a gem of a spot! It's in a very private location, we were able to drive our van right down the path and park next to the outhouse. Stayed 2 nights in July, was perfect. The Yurt cooled down at night, and the private setting was perfect to wind down and relax. Enjoyed campfires and exploring the area. We brought our inflatable kayaks, and we're able to float down the little river. The river is low and muddy, but was totally worth getting a bit dirty. Just a 15sec walk from the Yurt door. Saw a couple of otters, a family of racoons, a deer crossing the river, some kingfishers and so many other birds. The Yurt has 3 windows and a top opening, which made for great ventilation, and great views to wake up to. The outhouse was very clean and only smelled of cedar, easy sawdust system. Will definitely come back and enjoy this spot!!

We loved our stay in Emily’s yurt. She has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Situated in a very picturesque setting and a short drive to some of the best beaches in Ontario.

Cozy Yurt
A cozy place to stay on a very nice piece of land. The Yurt it self I found very calming and charming. It’s very close to downtown Paisley as well which has some nice restaurants, a good coffee shop and a small grocery store. You are very close to several nice areas to visit as well.

This was my second trip— this time, a different season and without kids— and it was just as wonderful. Emily is a thoughtful host— from dry firewood to a clean yurt, I can’t think of anything I would change.

We had a lovely springtime visit to the yurt. We listened to frogs (peepers, chorus frogs, leopard frogs) all evening and enjoyed a few great hikes in the area. Such a beautiful peaceful setting!

Cozy April Adventure
The yurt was a perfect way to spend a cozy weekend with our family. The wood stove kept the chill away. We loved seeing the turtles and geese, climbing trees, and playing hide-and-seek in the forest! And I must say: I’m not sure I’ve experienced a nicer, cleaner outhouse…the cedar shavings for the compostable toilet even made it smell nice! :) Emily gave great instructions in preparation for the trip and was responsive to my random questions throughout the weekend. Thanks again!

A perfect late-winter getaway
My kids and I has a lovely few days in Emily's yurt. The facility is in great condition and very comfortable. As well, the area around is beautiful and peaceful - though also well connected to town. All-in-all, it made for a perfect late-winter getaway!

Husband, wife, child and dog loved!
Fantastic time at the Paisley Mill Yurt. Emily thought of everything for this glamping experience, right down to the extra batteries, dishes, firewood and cooler to name only a few creature comforts! Winter camping was a breeze (warm breeze thanks to the gorgeous fireplace). Even in -20 temps and in a snow storm we were cozy-comfy. We definitely plan to return, perhaps during another season so we can enjoy the wonderful surroundings. Highly recommended!

We had such a wonderful girls weekend at the Yurt at Paisley Mill. So warm and cozy and filled with beautiful memories with my close friends. Close to home, yet far enough away to have a wee escape! Highly recommended!!!

Great new experience. A cute yurt by the river! The wood provided for the woodstove was wet and we had to buy 4 bags of wood ourselves- biggest downfall to the trip. Also no where outside to store wood to keep it dry for an outside fire. A shelter for eating and cooking outside would make this experience more enjoyable.

Coziest private yurt!
This yurt is the epitome of cozy. We loved winter “glamping” here with our little kids. Everyone stayed toasty warm -even on a night with an extreme cold warning. The setting is so peaceful and quiet, while still close to tasty restaurants and other amenities. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Small Town Backwoods
We spent a wonderful, winter weekend at Emily's yurt and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to spend some time in this cute small town, while also getting a near-backwoods experience. The yurt was well equipped and comfortable - the wood stove did a good job keeping us warm through a -30 degree C night. I would love to visit again in the spring or summer to see the woods and river in full-swing.

Great for a Small Family!
The Paisley Yurt was amazing! We enjoyed the privacy and beauty of the surrounding woods and river. We even managed to stay toasty warm during -30 windchill; winter camping is a must! Let the nearby dam sing you to sleep. All of the directions and instructions were detailed and made our stay super easy. Everything we could need was already provided. We also loved the Keanu Reeves coloring book and Pug playing cards.
