Bonna was a very helpful host and answered all my questions promptly. The site was great, and the yurts were nestled in the woods and felt very private. We ended up staying in the 20' yurt (there are two on the property) which faced the creek with beautiful views of the surrounding forest and hills. We had the wood stove working throughout the night and kept it very warm despite the 25 degree temps outside. We also loved how close the yurt was to the Strafford Nordic Center--about a 15 min drive.
One critique I have is there was a bit of confusion when I booked the yurt. I originally wanted the 24' yurt which had a bit more amenities and was nicer on the inside than the 20' yurt. I was told there were people staying in the 24' yurt and another group in the house so the only available space was in the 20 yurt. During our stay we ended up being the only ones there and no other guests ever showed up. I felt disappointed that we had to stay in the 20' yurt while the nicer one was vacant just a couple steps away. Perhaps the guests cancelled last minute, I have no idea. This was just a little confusing because we were anticipating parking our car up the road and carting everything in, (which would have been a big pain) to accommodate everyone, when in fact this was not necessary.
I can't speak for what the 20' yurt looks like in the summer, but in the winter it felt like it hadn't been used or
thoroughly cleaned in a long time. This was fine because we were basically looking at it as a camping shelter with access to wood stove. Make sure to bring plenty of headlamps and lights to illuminate the inside. There were a couple of candles and a kerosene lamp, but all had been low on fuel.
Overall, we had a great time here. Would love to visit again during the summer and spend time hanging out by the river. Thanks Bonna for letting us stay there. Cheers!
Staying here was definitely a fun and new experience! The yurts are cozy and warm. Definitely a bit bare boned but if you are here something a little different this is a great spot. Expect to feed a wood fire stove and fetch water from the main house or bring your own. We were grateful there was propane to fire up a Coleman stove but you can also use the wood fire stove for any cooking needs you may have, it will just take a bit longer. The directions are a bit off, so just do your research before you lose service. The yurts are on a large property with a beautiful stream and exploring around is lovely. I would say the whole experience is between camping and glamping! Plenty of wood to go around and to have a campfire yourself. Some of the most amazing stars out there.
