Go yurt glamping in Canada!

Nestled in the trees on a large deck with the sounds of birds and squirrels all around, this unique structure spans 15 ft across with 14 triangular sides. It holds a double bed, dining table, rocking chair, 3 burner stove, sink with water, full kitchenette and all the cooking utensils that are needed. The wood stove keeps the space very warm and cozy and we offer professional massage and reiki. Guests can walk, ski or bike for hours along a river or visit towering gypsum cliffs that host huge bat caves. .

A yome is a cross between a yurt and a dome (but really more like a yurt in shape:). It is tucked away in the trees of our 20-acre wood lot. We provide lots of wood and fire starters for the wood stove, but guests should have experience with wood stoves (or be really keen to learn). The stove is big enough to easily heat the whole yome to cozy comfort but guests should expect to have to keep the stove going in order to keep the space warm, and this may mean stoking it once in the night. We provide lots of extra blankets and two pairs of extra slippers for those who forget to bring their own. A solar panel provides enough power for the lights, charging a cell phone and maybe a computer if its sunny but not much more.

The space is beautiful, unique and quite dreamy, but it is rustic. There is a composting toilet next to the yurt (with hand sanitizer but no sink) and outdoor showers (with hot water) near our farmhouse. There is a three-burner propane cook stove, cooking and dining wares and a small sink for dishes. There are all the utensils that you may need to cook for yourself, but there is limited counter space so cooking elaborate meals is possible but could be cumbersome. There is a cooler and we can stock it with ice packs upon request. Coffee and french press are supplied.

Massages and reiki are offered to guests for $90 (60 min). Morghain Lee is a massage therapist and Reiki Master and enjoys blending these two body therapies for a holistic healing experience.

There is an outdoor fire pit and star gazing chairs. Only natural soaps are to be used in the shower, the sink, pond or river. We have some Dr Bronners if you like:)

Cell reception on the land depends on the provider but most people have weak service (one or two bars). Enough to maintain a phone connection (if you are not walking around too much) but not enough to download videos. Some people have more or less.

Pets are allowed but for an extra $15 contribution to compensate for the extra cleaning. Guests are also asked that dogs not be on the bed and that they don't chase our chickens or kittens.

There are outdoor showers available in spring, summer and fall when the pipes won't freeze. For those wanting to stay for longer periods in the winter, we can discuss the usage of the shower in our house.
