Do you remember seeing the night sky full of stars and so close it felt as if you could reach up and touch them? Ever catch a glimpse of an owl silently hunting in the trees or try to identify different bird songs? 

In our busy lives, often surrounded by noisy traffic or lights everywhere blocking out the night sky, we often miss that sense of being part of nature that is all around us. Being here, immersed in nature, you'll likely feel your body slough off the tension that all the hustle and bustle have built up in you and re-connect yourself with the natural world and you will come alive again and be refreshed in ways you might never have imagined. 

Our yurt, surrounded by evergreens,  is a 3 to 5 minute walk from the main house. 

Our group camping area consists of your own Yurt and additional tent campsites which are available for rent on our "Tent in the Pines" listing.  A great place for a family camping event. (eg. Mom and Dad and little ones stay in the Yurt, the older kids pitch their own tent a few yards away)

A fire ring and picnic table are included. A screened patio tent, a cookstove, and a solar shower bag for quick cleanup may be available to rent. Bring your own air mattress/mat and sleeping bags.

Bob and Roxanne ("BobandRox") were wonderful hosts who thought of everything to make our stay awesome. They helped us tow our gear to the site (a 2 minute walk from the house/parking) and made sure everything was setup with water and lots of firewood. They even drew us a map to help us navigate the grounds! The yurt was spacious, clean, and comfortable with a cot and mattress pad included. The stars were nice and bright, and waking up to the morning sun under the shade of the yurt was a welcome change of scenery. We definitely recommend staying with Roxanne and Bob and are planning to visit again soon!

Bob and Roxanne are wonderful and thought of everything. We definitely needed our bug spray, but they had plenty of firewood ready to keep the bugs away. The yurt was very clean and comfortable, and the complimentary sleeping mat was super comfy. I definitely recommend it!

We will definitely be returning! Kind hosts, always available to help, opened their home and made resources available to make our stay excellent!
Bob and Rox have outstanding qualities that compliment each other, varied life experiences.... who do you know that can hand tie snow shoes or make a yurt by hand?
Thank you both for a fabulous weekend!

It was the perfect weekend getaway - amazing views at dusk and dawn, lovely tree lined trails, and a well kept rustic area makes you feel close to nature and captures the essence of simple living. Bob and Roxanne were amazing hosts with lovely conversation and prepared for everything we had forgotten - even a mattress! Plus you can't go wrong with morning coffee! Overall, would highly recommend going for even just a night.
