Nestled in the woods of our 5-acre homestead and small hobby farm, The Dragonfly Yurt is a rustic retreat for your rest, relaxation, & restoration.

Living here on this beautiful Kalapuyan land is a blessing for us, and in September 2021, we started sharing the beauty of this place with others.

The spaceDuring your stay, the 16’ Dragonfly Yurt and private outdoor bathroom area are completely yours!  Outdoor kitchen has also been set up so no need to share a grill with the hosts who live in the nearby log home (but far enough away for your privacy!). 

Inside the yurt, we currently have a queen bed (single size futon mattress available too!) a couch, table/bench, outdoor bistro table, foldable chairs/tables, fan, electric fireplace, space heater, heated mattress pad & blanket, a tv with built-in dvd player, HDMI cable, and Fire TV Stick plus other amenities.

Your stay will also be equipped with a designated parking spot, a basic outdoor kitchen set-up (gas grill, camp stoves, cooler with ice packs, sink) as well as a nearby outdoor bathroom area with a hot/cold shower, private composting toilet area, hand washing station, and a sink with hot water access. Water is potable from our well, and we provide filtered water inside the yurt.

We have a portable wood burning fire pit available (when allowed) with some firewood , fire starter, etc provided. Gas fire pit hopefully coming soon! There are various sitting & swinging (hammock!) areas, and plenty of open space. You can even forage for mushrooms. And on a clear night, there are amazing sunsets and star gazing!

Stay tuned - we are planning a future “Forest Bathing” path. We'll be posting updated photos soon too!

Other things to notePeople from all backgrounds are welcome, but hate has no home here.

Please respect our neighbors & help keep the peace. Don’t speed and be careful of deer while driving in the neighborhood and nearby vicinity. If you feel comfortable, we also tend to wave to each other while in the neighborhood.

Our experience at this property was so wonderful. The yurt is decorated to be cozy and comfy and has just about any amenity you could imagine. We love to cook and we’re pleased to find an extremely well stocked outdoor kitchen. The animals on the property were very friendly and our son Forest loved looking up at all the trees surrounding the yurt. We also purchased some fresh eggs from their chickens and they were delicious, we even took an extra dozen to bring home. The yurt is a very short drive to the lake and the water was lovely. We would highly recommend this listing!!

If the State Park yurts are minimalist, the Dragonfly yurt is maximalist! It had everything we could have wanted, from cooking stuff to entertainment to bedding and seating. The cooking and bathroom areas are right outside and it still feels like camping with all the trees and sounds of nature (but without the traffic and people noises of a regular campground). Though you can have three adults (and we did), it's better suited for two, maybe plus a small child.

Composting toilet with shower attached and hand washing sink. Includes towels and shower sandals in a variety of sizes.Kitchen setup with hot water for washing. Full set of dishes kept inside the yurt.

Great location, in the woods, near a lake. The yurt had everything you could need. My mom forgot her toothbrush and there was one available. The hosts, including resident dogs, chickens and goats, were super lovely. Really relaxing!

Very lovely space. The yurt is so well equipped I didn’t need half my supplies; probably one of the best supplied glamping places I’ve been. It is very well maintained. You can tell the animals are well cared for and friendly.

It hit 95+ while I visited and the yurt stayed relatively cooler than I expected. The hosts supplied several fans and a swamp cooler but even without the cooler it was not as hot as I thought it would be. I do recommend leaving everything open when it gets that hot though. The trees and shade provide a nice breeze that helped keep everything cool.

The Wi-Fi seemed to work pretty well for those of you looking to WFH away from home.

It was a lovely little break from the city and we’d be happy to return.

This place is magical; not only the yurt and all of its amenities but the location is amazing. The yurt is in the woods with a short walk to a very pretty lake and park. I hope to return.

Man what a present surprise. We rewatched them Fellowship for the first time in awhile in their wonderful yurt, and I felt like Samwise camping on the shores of Kings river.

But yes very nice yurt and amenities. Highly recommend.

YAY! So glad you enjoyed your stay. The yurt was the perfect spot for those DVDs. Please know you're welcome back anytime - you can then watch the other movies :) And maybe we'll have fixed our "hobbit house" by then. Thanks again for staying with us at The Dragonfly Yurt.

We had a wonderful time here! The goats, dogs, and chickens that greeted us were super friendly and sweet. The hosts have thought of everything to help make the stay more comfortable and homey, including having extra cooking equipment and a breakfast station in the yurt. The hot water shower and hand/dishwashing was glorious! It really made our camping trip over-the-top awesome. I have already recommended it to friends.
