The Shanti Community was amazing! I stayed in the yurt on the property, though there are also a handful of converted buses available to stay in as well. The yurt was nice and cozy, warmed by a woodfire stove. Shelly was a wonderful host and made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay. The area is serene and truly off the grid, and there are some fantastic areas for hiking as well. I can't wait to come back next time I'm in the area!

I write this review in hopes that others don't make the same mistake we made.
You will have a lovely experience under the following conditions:
-You have a vehicle that take off road conditions like a 4x4.
-You do not arrive after dark
-Don't get lost

We are moving across the country and we were so excited to stay here but it did not work out for us. We had some circumstances that made us arrive late. It was out of our control but ultimately we would have been fine if the host had said we can no longer accomodate you. Those were things in no one's control.
When we arrived with her directions the road was not appropriate for our Nissan Rogue or Nissan Altima. Both cars less than 10 and 1 year old. It was really scary to arrive and have your car almost stuck several times. It's really not driveable unless you have a very tough vehicle. On top of that I was doing my best to follow her step by step directions. When I contacted the host or tried to because you don't have reception in that area (which we knew beforehand) she responded by letting us know that we were the first people to get lost. She also said to not use map directions which I wasn't. It was dark and the road was awful and I probably missed one turn.
I'm a teacher and I thought about this: I'm teaching a lesson and just one student doesn't understand. How do I respond? I certainly don't respond by saying well everyone else gets it. It's not compassionate or kind. That response made us turn around. I hope she begins to understand this because it's very clear she didn't in our conversations. Her solution was to threaten to "report us." I hope that this experience is a learning experience for the host and others who want to stay here. We are glad we turned around.

Response from Shelly, the Host, on June 21st, 2018

Shanti means inner peace. Fortunately of the over 1000 guests who have found their way (in prius, mustang, even fiat as well as cars with lift and 4wd) seem to all leave feeling exactly what this magical space is. Inner peace. it is a 2 mile stretch and rocky as my site warns. I offer the option to book a $10 ride in advance. These guests did not take that option and said they would arrive by check in. They did not. i continued to give directions reminding them that its best to use my directions and not map apps. She seemed frustrated and defensive so i stayed awake well past check in and continued to send directions despite the guest's tone. After 2 hours passed from the time they said they would arrive i wrote to say i needed to know of their whereabouts. i was concerned and it was getting late! Notifying hipcamp that the guests were lost felt like a possible option. As it turned out they gave up, turned around and did not bother to notify me which felt incredibly disrespectful of my time. Im sorry they missed the magic. The land was filled with renters in all spaces and the night was incredibly beautiful. We feel blessed with the many who have come here with positive energy and have left saying they will be back and many have repetitively. Ive reread all of our correspondence in this communication and absolutely nothing i said was intended to do as the guest accused. All was peaceful. Shanti ... inner peace. I wish them luck in the future.

Awesome place. Do not miss out on staying here. Unbelievable location, view, and vibe. No one ever said "Man, you should have seen the Holiday Inn I stayed at".

Freaking Awesome spot!
Shelley was a very friendly and welcoming host. Beautifully kept grounds, and the Yurt was super cozy and accomadating.
Great views, and a very tranquil environment.
