We've been farming here for 16 years, growing 5 acres of vegetables and flowers, all marketed within 50 miles of the farm. The farm sits on 90 acres right up against the Hogbacks and is only 5 miles from quaint Bristol village and tons of outdoor recreation opportunities. Our cozy, private, rustic mountain yurt is a 30’ foot space located in an upper field tucked into a wooded hillside. Views facing east are great for watching the sunrise and a kitchen and outhouse mean you’ve got everything you need to get out of town for a few days.* The location provides a serene, intimate getaway for couples, artists or anyone looking for a bit of mindful downtime and introspection. The yurt is insulated and heated by a wood stove. It is equipped with a full-sized bed, couch, breakfast table with four chairs and night table. Linens included. Surrounding fields are available for tent camping should you want to host a larger event and use the yurt for its kitchen and gathering space (the furniture can be removed). The yurt and its verdant surroundings are great for day-long wellness retreats, sound baths, yoga workshops, art classes and more. Farm tours, floral workshops and personalized catered meals by Blossom Kitchen and Catering, the on-site vegetarian kitchen, are available upon request for delivery to the yurt with at least two days’ notice.  This is a perfect relaxation spot for bikers and hikers - Just beyond the yurt you can enjoy, or even help to improve newly constructed mountain biking trails Addison County Bike Club’s members have been working on. Rivers and lakes with swimming holes are an easy drive away, as is the charming mountain village of Bristol, with a fully stocked supermarket, two breweries, restaurants of all price ranges, shops and more. We are 30 minutes from the Burlington International Airport, and the closest Amtrak train station in Rutland is an hour drive. It is best to arrive before sunset. Please do not arrive in the middle of the night.

Lovely Winter Get Away
We spent two nights in the yurt in January and had a truly lovely time. The yurt and kitchen building are lovely and cozy. Once you get the wood stove going the yurt is toasty and the little heater kept the kitchen warm. The kitchen also has all the cooking gear you’ll need and then some. Also it’s only 30min from Burlington if you want to make a day trip up. Would love to come back in the warmer weather as well. Highly recommend!

Yurt was cozy! Nice being on a farm, there was another yurt but otherwise felt private. It was nice having a full kitchen for cooking. We found that even with wood stove heated it was drafty but luckily it wasn’t too cold of a weekend.

Perfect getaway
Such a perfect weekend getaway from the city! The yurt was so special, cozy and situated in a perfect location. Close to tons of walking, hiking and biking trails! We did tons of exploring in the woods. The little attached kitchen was key to having all the conveniences of being in civilization yet it seemed super far removed once back inside the yurt!

Yurt Life!
We loved the yurt! This property was the perfect way to enjoy fall foliage in Vermont as it's tucked away from distractions and overlooking the mountainside. The yurt had plenty of seating, places to sleep, natural light, games, books, etc while the wood burning stove kept us warm on 40 degree nights. The heated bed cover was a delight as well. The kitchen is fully equipped to handle any cooking and food storage needs while the composting toilet was also great to have on the property. Having the ability to park the car nearby was also advantageous.

This was a super cool place to stay. Jill is not kidding when she says try to arrive before sunset because it’s tough to find in the dark. But, it’s spacious, clean, and charming. There are views of Mt. Abraham and Ellen right outside. The kitchen is bright and clean. The outhouse is clean! And the wood stove kept us toasty. We took a nice walk on the mountain biking trails behind the yurt. It was a great time. Would definitely go back.

10/10 awesome!
This yurt is awesome. Clean, and conveniently located near a cute Vermont town (Bristol) and it has everything you need for a cozy stay in a rustic setting. Did I mention that it is on a little hill so you get to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and starry nights with a bonfire?

Away from it all at the yurt!!
New leaf organic farm is a beautiful property with amazing views & beautiful flowers. The yurt it was spacious and comfortable with lots of blankets & pillows. The kitchen made everything very convenient & we ate breakfast by the kitchen in the shade. Had sunset cocktails and dinner by campfire overlooking the farm & mountains. Jill was super nice & helpful.

The yurt was great! Everything we needed was there and the yurt was in a beautiful setting on the land. There were active wasps (or hornets?) on the field side of the yurt so we didn’t use the fire ring or that side to exit/enter. Keeping that side closed wasn’t a problem for us and the screen door did its job. The farm stand was fantastic and I wished I’d checked it out before our final night. We saw a few mountain bikers and heard some voices from the other yurt; overall the place felt a very serene and peaceful little slice of the farm. The winds in the morning coming through the yurt was so awesome. We want to come back for a winter version!

I was so happy during my stay on Jill's farm. The yurt was situated on a perfect part of the property that gave me great views while also feeling private. The property has trails I could explore and that would be perfect for mountain bikers (I chatted with one friend of Jill's who had come for a ride). Having the kitchen building was a real luxury and it was nice to not have to break out my stove to warm water or cook. As a Vermonter, I'd never been to Bristol, and it was nice to explore a new town. The recommendations Jill left inside the kitchen were helpful. The town was quaint and fun for a nice meal outside and some window shopping. I definitely will come back.

Came in November and will be back!
My partner, pup, and I stayed in the yurt the first week of November and it was amazing! While definitely very chilly, the wood stove kept us toasty and the kitchen was so cozy to cook and hang out in. Jill was a responsive host and the area is a quick drive to Burlington and other scenic areas. The kitchen is fully equipped and the yurt even has outlets! A few tips that may help you plan your trip to the yurt: 1) If you have a low-rider car (or one that is not great off-roading) park by the first bark and walk up to the yurt. Not only is it more scenic to walk, you don't run the risk of bottoming out or getting stuck if it's wet (which we almost did). 2) Bring extra dry firewood and starters. There is wood there but it isn't covered well so if it rained recently you won' have any luck with the woodstove. They sell firewood and starters at the 7-11s in the area. We used at least two chords per night, but plan to buy more if you are having an outdoor fire (they have an outdoor fire pit) and/or pan to add fire throughout the night. 3) If you're heading there in the colder months (October-Spring) bring extra blankets or sleeping bags if you don't plan to stoke the wood fire all night. We needed our 40-degree bags plus a wool blanket bc we did not want to wake up to add more wood and we really needed them. 4) Bring a headlamp, the compostable toilet is down about a fifteen-second walk from the yurt, but it is very dark at night. 5) If it is rainy or wet then freezing be very careful walking on the boardwalks that connect the yurt and kitten to the driveway. It rained then froze over and I took a fall bc I wasn't paying attention. We had an amazing time and will definitely be booking this place again. Thanks Jill!

A spacious yurt with a very comfortable bed, good view of the night sky through the sky dome. The yurt is well situated discreetly in nature but not isolated. Overall, nice and clean! Loved the separate dining annex—fully equipped. Beautiful location and views. Even the latrine was the cleanest I have encountered and also had a nice view into nature. The town of Bristol has amazing restos. Wokky’s—terrific Chinese food, Bobcat for fine dining and Mr Snaps for breakfast and sandwiches. Suggestion: know how to manipulate yurt window flaps. Jill was very responsive and prompt, a pleasure to deal with.

Gorgeous views, comfy yurt, lots of beautiful hikes nearby, and a great little mountain biking loop on the property. We loved our stay! The kitchen room was a bonus for us as we could whisk the earlier-rising kid into that room at daybreak and let the others sleep in a bit. The yurt wasn't listed with a bunk bed but had one when we arrived, which was also a big bonus for our family of 5. Check in/out was easy. We would definitely stay again.

I would have to say we were disappointed with our stay. Some lights didn't work, there were mouse droppings/cobwebs that were not cleaned up, there was a mouse bait block on a kitchen shelf, the food wasn't cleaned out of the refrigerator, there were no matches, paper or kindling for the woodstove and the stovepipe appeared to need a cleaning. For the price we paid, we expected a bit more from the accommodations. There is a difference between rustic and shabby; It just seemed like there was not a lot of care taken.

Peaceful and inspiring
For anyone who loves yurts as much as I do, you will love staying here. There are plenty of natural outdoor spaces to enjoy, and plenty of space to be nestled inside the yurt. You may hear traffic or farming equipment, but you will also hear woodpeckers, mourning doves, owls, and coyotes. My yurt visit was definitely a momentary slice of heaven.

Jill’s yurt was absolutely wondering, we enjoyed our stay tremendously! The location was serene and private, and the views were incredibly. The kitchen was a nice plus to have to cook breakfast and other meals. The site was well supplied with firewood and kindling for the fire pit and wood stove. The farm stand across the street had delicious precooked meals and fresh produce! We would highly recommend the yurt and stay to anyone

Beautiful yurt; some troubleshootin
The yurt was beautiful on a cute farm with lots of firewood. It was peaceful and relaxing. There were some issues. When we asked for kindling and help with the woodstove to heat the yurt the host initially expressed she didn’t want to come help, though the signage in the yurt indicates they can show us what to do in person and that kindling is provided. When we returned to the yurt after being out for the day, the power was out and the host was slow to respond and seemed to find helping us an inconvenience (we did get it working - there are circuit breakers under the yurt). The kitchen is cute but the oven doesn’t work unless it’s on broil and there are no utensils to eat with. Overall a restful stay but some troubleshooting required.

The yurt was super cute and cozy, but a small bummer when the kitchen didn’t have utensils to eat our food. It was a fun stay, even with funky weather, but would have been a smidge better if more dry wood was in the yurt to begin! Enjoyed the time, and loved the atmosphere.

Short February yurt-cation
My partner and our hound dog Una enjoyed our stay at the yurt. It was helpful to have 4WD to make it up to the site (we have a Subaru, and were fine in the snow). Jill was very easy to communicate with, and she thoughtfully brought up some kindling for us to start the wood stove. The kitchen warms up quickly and has basic items. If there are specific cooking items you need, you might bring them along just in case -- there was not much in the way of silverware or taller pots for things like rice or pasta. All in all, it was a nice break from our normal routine and a very beautiful place to spend a short mid-week yurt-cation.

What an incredible couples get away! Nestled in our own, private winter wonderland, the yurt offered beautiful winter views, a short drive to delicious pizza, and an intimate, cozy setting set by the wood stove perfect for reading, board games, and spending very intentional time with one another. Jill, the host, gave us all the info we needed to have a successful comfortable stay, even in single digit weather.

A perfect winter escape in Vermont
My husband and I loved our winter stay at the yurt! There was plenty of wood, and the yurt heated right up after starting a fire. We enjoyed great xc skiing in the area and delicious meals prepared by Tessa of Blossom and New Leaf Organics. We look forward to returning soon!

Home sweet yurt
We had a great time staying on New Leaf Organic farm and we loved the yurt! It was never more than 25F outside but the wood stove kept the yurt above 60F and wood was plentiful. There was quite a lot of snow so snowshoes were helpful to explore the farm. The separate kitchen was well-equipped.

We had a great time at the yurt! Although a little cold, the wood stove was able to heat up the room until we were shedding layers. Farm stand has lots of produce and great foods to choose from, and the catered meal was excellent as well. 10/10

I had such a lovely experience staying at this yurt! I found it cozy, clean, and wonderfully decorated. We were so grateful to find a bundle of wood by the stove all ready to burn, especially as temperatures dropped below 0 over our stay. We brought logs of our own, but ended up burning through more from the stack outside. The wood stove is so charming. And efficient! It was really nice to have the separate building with the perfect little kitchen, too. I hope to return in warmer weather to enjoy the fire pit outside!

Great mountain getaway
We enjoyed our stay in the cozy mountain yurt. It was private and peaceful offering a great view of the farm from the fire pit. Our dogs adjusted well and Jill provided great advice for nearby hiking etc. We were in close proximity to places to bike and kayak. This was a great trip making the current pandemic fade from view while getting much needed fresh air and time in nature. The little kitchen was perfect for cooking our meals. Thanks for hosting us! We hope to come back again.
