Designed by yurt lovers, built by yurt lovers, for yurt lovers. This is not just a stay, it's an experience you won't forget! This yurt sits about 3 feet high of the ground and so we appropriately called it "The Highlander". It is quaint, peaceful, and magical.  

1 pet allowed at $10 per night and $50 deposit paid to owner in advance.

The Heart Center has something for everyone. It is easy to let go in the peaceful setting and the fact that it was previously a school seems to promote a sense of joy and curiosity that will lift your heart. I stayed in a yurt which was a lovely retreat after tent camping/hiking in the heat.

Liz and her team are dedicated to the mission and sanctity of a truly unique place. I really have not had a more attentive host and intentional space set up to foster inner healing but also the opportunity to connect with other folks in a more meaningful way than your average stay.

There are so many beautiful things to see and do nearby and Liz can help you out. A secret unexpected treat was Wehrloom Honey & Meadery.

Spiritually I feel this was a really positive and transformative experience at a much needed time. Liz is an incredibly gifted healer and teacher. I hope to come back to The Heart Center again for a longer stay!

This was such a lovely stay! We were only there for one night but would love to come back. The property is much more woodsy than the pictures led on which was a big plus for us. Everything was extremely clean. Liz had drinking water in the room for us as well as hand sanitizer which was a nice touch. There is a portapotty near the yurt or you can use the nicer restrooms in the gym just a short walk away.

Our Yert at the Heart Centre was everything we expected. It was secluded and felt extremely personable. There was a thunderstorm during our night which knocked out the power, but even during the middle of the summer the Yert was cozy and comfortable without the AC. No rain got in either so the seal is top notch! I'd highly recommend if you want the camping experience while still being able to stay in a comfy bed.

Beautiful setting. Host Liz is beyond helpful! I actually got stranded and she came to get me! I will be going back but for a much longer stay.
