Come stay in a hand crafted yurt on your very own private island in beautiful Blue Rocks, NS. Enjoy exploring the 2 acre island that looks onto the famous fish shacks of Blue Rocks, roast marshmallows and sausages on a camp fire, watch the stars from your bed through the circular sky light and go for a morning paddle. This will be an experience you won't forget!

This place is just incredible. I would go back in a heartbeat. So calm, so relaxing, extremely cute, perfect for a romantic getaway. The stars, the Yurt (surrounded by water), the peacefulness. You can book without thinking twice.
