The space
The Sunset Yurt is perched on the edge of a forested ravine with beautiful sunset views. At 200 square feet it is the largest of our three yurts, with a plush queen-sized bed and stylish, cozy design. There is an attached outhouse with a compost toilet and hot and cold running water. Luxurious semi-outdoor showers (shared), are a short walk away. In the winter months the yurt is insulated with a heater and an extra blanket; in the summer there is an electric fan. Outside, there is a handmade picnic table (made from trees on our property) and hang-out area exclusive to guests of the Sunset Yurt.

Cooking facilities include:
* small refrigerator
* drip coffee maker (coffee and tea provided)
* propane grill (propane included)
* 3-burner propane cooktop
* picnic table

Please note that the cooking area is not covered in case of rain.

You can either bring your own cookware, utensils, etc. or you can rent a camping box from us for $35 per stay which includes all you need to cook and serve your own food for two people, including place mats, plates, drinking glasses, mugs, bowls, eating utensils, dish towels, cooking utensils, salt and pepper, fry pan and pot, plus more. Best to reserve in advance to ensure availability.

Our vanishing-edge, salt-water pool (un-heated) features spectacular sunset views and is available for all guests staying on the property from 8am to dusk. The pool is a short walk from the sunset yurt is located below the main house. There are designated pool loungers for each unit that are situated more than 6 feet apart from each other so you can enjoy the pool while social distancing. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the hot tub is not available for guest use at this time. We have installed new outdoor soaking tubs at the Blackberry and Ponderosa Yurts, so if you would like to enjoy a soaking tub, you should reserve one of those: www.airbnb.com/h/BlackberryYurt

We care about sustainability and the planet. We use lightly scented and chemical-free cleaners and laundry soap, and provide single-use organic and biodegradable personal products for you to use during your stay. We disinfect all surfaces with bleach per CDC guidelines.

Wifi is accessible throughout the property but since we are in a rural area, internet service is often slow and intermittent. Unfortunately it is not possible to get reliable, fast internet in our rural area - trust me, we are not happy about it either. We suggest the best way to experience all our property has to offer is to unplug, enjoy the birds chirping, listen to the breeze whistling through the treetops, and breathe in the fresh mountain air.

We are following California’s COVID-19 guidance for campgrounds/lodging, including enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures and social distancing protocols. If you have specific questions about our COVID-19 procedures, please ask.

Guest access
Guests can access the pool area from 8am to dusk. It is an area shared by other guests and is located below our main residence so you should have no expectation of privacy. Our 32-acre property is adjacent to government-owned open space and guests can wander the trails on the property and surrounding area. There are also two ponds to hang out by or for fishing, a hammock near one of the ponds, and a few areas for sunset-viewing and star-gazing. Please note, we charge an additional fee of $20 per night for up to two dogs (please inform us in advance). We will request payment after you check in.

Other things to note
We are at least a 15-minute drive on winding country roads from any restaurant or grocery store. Elevation is 2,200 feet in the Sierra Foothills, so in the summer you should expect temperatures in the 90s (32 - 37 Celsius) and in the winter we get a lot of rain and sometimes even snow (although it rarely sticks around for long). Best to check the weather forecast before you come so you can adequately prepare for your stay.

We are located about an hour from the Sacramento airport, about 1.5 hours from South Lake Tahoe, and 2.5 hours from San Francisco. All of these travel time estimates do not include traffic, so be sure to factor in traffic if you are traveling during peak times.

We are located in a forested area in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Northern California. Endemic to this area are spiders, ticks, mosquitoes, wasps, bears, mountain lions, rattlesnakes, and poison oak. It is entirely possible that some of the insect inhabitants may find their way into the cottage, either through an open door or by hitchhiking on your clothing. If you are uncomfortable with interacting with these fellow inhabitants of our region, this may not be the right place for you.

Location

Garden Valley, California, United States

We are located in wine country and we can offer suggestions on our favorite wineries to visit. There are hiking trails within walking distance or a short drive. Chili Bar Park on the South Fork of the American River is a 15-minute drive and has a great beach and swimming area. There are multiple lakes within a short drive for paddle boarding, swimming, and canoeing or kayaking. Commercial river rafting trips take off from Lotus/Coloma which is about 20 minutes away. There are also lots of mountain bike trails and we can help connect you to a mountain bike tour company that will show you the hidden back roads and trails. The area is home to the famous Rubicon Trail for back road jeeps and other off-road vehicles. We are also located in the heart of Gold Country with lots of historical interest surrounding the Gold Rush - we are about 20 minutes from where gold was discovered in California.
