A unique, peaceful place to stay

Yurt - Entire home/apt · 28th Ave, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155, United States

The Space

A retreat-like, tranquil setting in a north Seattle neighborhood. Easy parking, safe neighborhood, 15 minutes (south) to the heart of downtown Seattle, or 15 minutes (north) to Everett.

The yurt is beautiful. It's sometimes used for personal retreats. Nestled in the pines, you have the yurt to yourself during your stay. It has its own bathroom and shower. There's a hot tub on the deck of the house, and a kitchen (in the house) if you need it. Host is Teri. She's thoughtful and will protect your privacy.

5 miles straight west is the Puget Sound and the quaint port town of Edmonds where you can find a great meal of fresh seafood at Anthony's Home Port, or hop on a ferry and head out to the Olympic Peninsula. From the yurt, it's about 15 minutes to the Bastyr campus, or a mile to the Burke-Gilman walking/bicycle trail, local Starbucks, ThirdPlace Books, or the HoneyBear Bakery. You can head north only 10 miles by car or bicycle on the Burke-Gilman Trail and find yourselves at the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery (one of the Woodinville wineries) or the RedHook micro-brewery.

    Response from Teri:

    Unfortunately the yurt had already been scheduled for use outside of ‘airbnb’ and our calendar had not yet reflected this fact. The only saving grace was that the mistake was caught almost immediately which allowed ample time (three months) for this guest to find other accommodations. Was so sorry to disappoint the guest.

  • A great place to stay if you need some time away. I could sit and read in there for hours. Teri has speakers and CDs for music (I listened to the same relaxing CD 4 times through). The yurt has a wood burning stove, couches, beautiful shower, and meditation space. Breakfast was delicious and conversation with Teri over breakfast was delightful. We didn't go in the hot tub so I guess we'll have to go back soon!

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Teri's yurt! The yurt is gorgeous and very comfortable. The hot tub is a great amenity, also. We'll definitely return one day!

  • My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in Teri's yurt. It was a nice sanctuary away from the city. The hot tub was fantastic and the yurt was clean, modern, and relaxing. There are lots of candles, meditative music available, and comfy pillows as well as an amazing fireplace. Great communication. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for being a great hostess, Teri!

  • The yurt is a magical place. You instantly feel welcome and more relaxed upon entering the space. The owner, Teri, is extremely gracious and kind. She is more than happy to answer questions, make recommendations, and share some amazing stories! I cannot wait to come back. What a wonderful place to feel renewed and ready to face the world.

  • staying in the yurt was so beautiful, comfortable, clean and cosy ( there is a wood burning stove and a skylight , for those who like a real fire and natural light ... and lots of blankets and cushions and bedding ) ... there was just enough and plenty of all one needs to nurture oneself in this very special space.
    ... staying with Teri, was staying with a dear friend. Teri is warm, thoughtful and respectful of ones' space and needs.

  • My partner and I loved the yurt - it is magnificent, peaceful and has so many beautiful touches. The yard around it is lovely, the big trees make you feel like you are somewhere in nature rather than the North end of Seattle. Teri is a gem of a person - felt more like meeting an old friend for us and she even accommodated my request for a gluten free breakfast.
    Thanks a million :)

  • If you are looking for a unique retreat, this is the place. The yurt invites you to escape and calm down. This is a place to relax, from the hot tub in the trees to the firepit on the patio. It's unfortunate, I had a such a busy weekend scheduled, that I was not able to take advantage of relaxing atmoshpere as much as I needed to. But I sitll enjoyed my stay very much! Teri was a lovely host!

  • The Yurt is great. I recommend pulling the mattress of the futon and sleeping under the sky light. Teri is a terrific hostess. We'd stay with her again in a hart beat. And the Hot tub was a god send after three day's of camping in the Cascades.

  • We had a wonderful 2 night stay in the Yurt, and enjoyed the peace and solitude of the surroundings. The trees embrace this little wooden cabin, which has a very sacred feeling to it. Lovely windows look out into the trees, from the comfortable leather sofas while you enjoy music and a good book. The hot tub is particularly lovely after a long day of sightseeing.The location is within 15 minutes from downtown Seattle and the directions are good. And we enjoyed the recommendation from our Hostess Teri, to drive into Edmonds for a seaside dinner at Anthony's Boathouse for sunset. We enjoyed our breakfasts outside on the deck with a lovely fire. Teri was a great host, and made us feel comfortable quickly. She has created this lovely space, and it does feel like a retreat of sorts. A great place for recharging batteries in life, and resting the soul. We had a wonderful stay and would recommend the Yurt and Teri to anyone who is seeking a unique and lovely experience, that is far more personal than any hotel, and far lovelier!
