This unique place in Lyle, Washington - part of the Columbia River Gorge scenic area - is magical and utterly beautiful. Set in a magnificent meadow as far as the eye can see with soft rolling hills, edged up to a deep oak woodland/ponderosa pine forest. Tons of wildlife, stars, trails, rivers. We think it is one of the finest most precious and beautiful places on the planet. Windsurfing and kiteboarding mecca. Mount Adams, Mount Hood, kayaking on the Klickitat and White Salmon Rivers; hikes abounding. Heart-stopping beauty and peacefulness whichever way you turn. You will feel like you have gone to your own little Shangri-La and you will not soon forget the experience. Even sleeping is special here, as you look up into the dome of the yurt and behold the stars, while twinkle lights gently illuminate the interior.  Oh, we consider this an asset but we want to be sure you know there is very poor cell service in the yurt. However, you can walk a couple hundred feet into the meadow and find service.

This yurt was the perfect place to celebrate my birthday with my husband! The fall colors were amazing, the space was clean, cozy and adorable, and the hosts were so friendly and helpful! We would love to come back soon.

Irene was a great host from start to finish of our yurt stay. We were directed to an amazing, mountainous sunset view from a special location on the hill. The amenities were just right for an elevating camping-like experience. Outhouse was cool. Location was magic. Love the porch and furniture. Everything you could need (mugs, plates, knives, even a couple of hangers for your jackets, etc) was provided for. Would/will stay again. Star gazing was ✨ great and fall is the ideal temp!

This place was a gem! We came from work so we arrived later than hoped. However it almost felt special, because when we woke up we had the most amazing views that wowed us and inspired us to want to come back soon! The location and the hospitality were beautiful. I was so happy to experience this wonderful place.

Looks like it might have been a lovely stay but unfortunately there were 10+ hornets in the yurt when we arrived and we didn’t have time t stay and find out if they would clear out. Host was nice and gracious and we are expecting a refund. Would try again?

Yup, sometimes nature has its way. The bees flew off to greener pastures by the next day, and our guest was offered a full refund. Hopefully you will give us another try :-)

Can’t recommend this spot enough. A cozy, well furnished yurt with wood stove at the base of an awesome meadow. A short hike up the hill shows you an amazing view of sunset. I’ve told everyone I know about it. Also, the NICEST hosts ever!

This property and the forest cupcake are a gem!
My dog and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and returned to the city more refreshed than we’ve felt in a long time.
I look forward to returning in winter in spring!

The Yurt is located in a beautiful, quiet area surrounded by woods and a grassy hill. The host was very accommodating and kind, and we would very highly encourage anyone looking for a peaceful getaway to book a reservation. Even the drive up to the site is serene.

The amenities are adequate, and the composting outhouse commode is very well maintained and clean. Just like the listing mentions, the on-site well water (from a nearby pump) is cold and delicious.

A gorgeous view of the Columbia river on the drive up to the site
