What a cozy spot! The yurt was very clean upon arrival and felt so homey. Everything you need is here! Plenty of cookware, dishes, linens, fire wood, water and more.

I had so much fun wandering around the farm meeting all of the animals! Loved the suspension bridge too, how unique! I spent most of the night sitting by the fire pit out back, plenty of wood to keep it going on a nice summer night! There's no cell service here so it felt great to just unplug and relax on the farm.

Oh and I enjoyed a nice big breakfast in the morning with farm fresh eggs that were left on the kitchen table. Thank you so much! That was a nice perk. Such a great little spot here, hope to be back again one day!

The yurt far surpassed our expectations! It was very roomy, even for 4 of us. It had great air circulation and we slept really well. We anticipated being woken up by roosters, but we could barely hear the animals from our camp. Johanna was also an incredible host, giving us a tour of the farm and helping us with the gas canister when it ran out. Overall, it was a perfect holiday spot - such a special experience, and we'll definitely be back!

The Yurt is surprisingly spacious and comfortable in a secluded area of the farm. Very spacious for two, but could fit four easily. There is a bathroom with shower and composting toilet, a very well stocked little kitchen and even electric lamps by the bed.

Joanna was very thorough in explaining how to use the facilities and there were very helpful instructions for local hikes and swimming holes.

The yurt on Johanna's farm was my first, and I was impressed by the wide open feeling a round space provides. The bed was made up, linens provided. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our own meals, with the only necessary addition some store-bought ice for the cooler.

It was a great place to base our adventures in the Vermont countryside.

Bring headlamps. The battery powered lights on the night stands do work, but headlamps make food preparation in the kitchen after dark easy.

And Johanna is an amiable host, ready to help.

Our group of 4 had a great time at Green Gem yurt this past weekend. The accommodations were very clean and our host Johanna provided lots of little thoughtful touches like fresh blueberries, extra linens and towels, lavender sachets underneath our pillows, plenty of firewood, and lots of helpful recommendations for nearby points of interest. There was no cell service and no internet so we enjoyed unplugging and cooking and stargazing over the fire pit and playing board games by romantic candlelight. During the day we checked out the most wholesome and magical Brattleboro farmers market, about 20 mins away, and discovered one of the swimming hole recommendations off of route 30 which was absolutely beautiful and restorative. The only downside for us was that we wished the yurt was a bit further away from the main road; we heard an occasional car passing by. The composting toilet was also a tad challenging only because it filled up pretty fast with four of us and I had to empty it out over the compost pile. Certainly an eye-opening experience for a city girl, but probably no big deal to seasoned campers.

The yurt stay lived up to all my expectations. We knew this was rustic and off the grid and came prepared. The yurt is fully equipped for preparing meals which was a nice plus. The electric lamps (run off a converted car battery) were a nifty surprise. Johanna gave us a warm welcome and pointed out all the features of the yurt and offered a few tips prior to leaving us on our own. The fresh eggs, tomatoes and peaches were also a nice surprise and helped us with our daily breakfast, the only meal we cooked on site. We were so into the experience we even went all rustic and emptied the extremely primitive composting toilet ourselves. If you’re not daunted by lack of electricity and no flush toilet this can be an excellent getaway from the hectic, digitally obsessed modern world.

We loved our stay and I fell in love with Vermont over our intense five day exploration of the entire state. This was our base camp — every town and state park we visited was no more than a two hour drive away. We even traveled to New Hampshire and two towns in western New York. A memorable vacation for sure!

My mom and I had a great time staying on Johanna's farm. The yurt is cozy and full of interesting decor/books along with a comfy bed and indoor burners for cooking. All in all the perfect getaway from the bustle of every day life.

We had a great weekend staying at Johanna’s yurt. Everything was as described in the post. The fall colors put on a beautiful show. Johanna gave excellent directions to the Yurt. Make sure to save them as GPS will only get you so far.
