The Yurt is an extraordinary refuge from the frenzy of the city. Securely set high (7600ft) among mountains, the views stretch out in all directions backing up to the Cibola National Forest. Elk, deer, coyotes, and many birds share their land with us. The dark night sky is breathtaking. The yurt is off-the-grid, lit by soft oil lamps after sunset. We welcome all who travel here, eager to share the gifts of this wild place with warm hospitality.

The space
While there is no running water at the yurt, when we are on the property, guests are welcome to use the shower, laundry and wifi at our home 2/10ths of a mile up the road. In cold weather a small Mørso wood stove keeps the yurt cozy. Wood is provided!

We also have an outside hot-tub under the stars at the house. You are welcome to take a soak by day or night. Bring bathing suits, or go au naturelle! We promise not to peek. Towels on the premises.

The site is pet-friendly but unfenced. Please don't let your dogs chase the elk or deer. After dark you will want to keep your animals inside. We ask that you not let them on the bed or easy chairs. It takes a lot of water to clean all the dog hair off the bedding.

Where you’ll be

Datil, New Mexico, United States

The view is incredible with mountains 40 or more miles away across the Plains. The clean concrete deck 2/3 of the way around the yurt invites outdoor eating and presence. Outdoor folding chairs await your use in the yurt by the wood stove.

The yurt is at the high altitude end of the Wildwood subdivision. the entrance of which is 5.8 miles South of the intersection of US 60 and SR 12 in Datil. Datil offers a gas station, a small convenience store, a post office and a restaurant. The yurt is about nine miles from those amenities. Wildwood subdivision contains 10-12 acre lots with a few people and lots of wilderness. The elk and deer outnumber the people by far! Cell reception is spotty but at the yurt Verizon sometimes supports FaceTime.

The packed dirt road around the subdivision is very passable most of the year. In wet seasons, AWD is helpful. PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ARRIVE BY DAYLIGHT. We have had to drive around the subdivision looking for lost guests.

I have lived an adventurous life and now am living into the adventure of retirement. I live full time in our home in Datil, NM. I weave in my Datil studio and write about wilderness spirituality. It is a joy to welcome people from all backgrounds to our yurt, and learning about what is important to them. It is our hope to offer each guest a refuge and a place of deeper connection and beauty.
