This yurt provides a perfect glamping experience. The surroundings are a true nature get away. The crew was very hospitable and we were lucky enough to have been staying on a weekend when there was musical entertainment. A wonderful place to get away!

Wonderful little glamping experience. The dogs are sweet and will hang out with you. Lovely local hikes (would recommend St. Mary's River Trail--good swimming hole!). Go for this place if you like getting real close with nature, but still enjoy some comforts.
