Sparkling clean
4 recent guests said this place was sparkling clean.

The perfect getaway for solo adventurers, couples or the ideal artist's retreat. When was the last time you had the chance to experience an overnight in a yurt? Situated in a bucolic wooded lot in Woodbridge, CT, just 15 minutes from downtown New Haven, the Yurt is “glamping” at its best—not quite roughing it, but not quite luxury either.
