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.

Location

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. My husband Eric and I split our time between Albuquerque and our retirement home in Datil, NM. I also weave in my studio in Datil and am working on a book 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.
