The SpaceThe property has a total of 3 yurts which may be rented individually or booked together. Airbnb requires us to have three listings in order to rent the yurts individually. Contact us for specifics on your booking.
This listing is for the Orange yurt with 4 beds (2 singles & 1 double with a single bunk bed on top) 5 guests max. Our other two airbnb listings are for the Purple, and Orange yurts with 2 beds (1 double & 1 single, plus a love seat) 3 persons max.
When you stay, you may be the only guests on the property, or there may be other guests occupying the other yurts.
The listed pricing includes the Idaho 6% sales, and 2% hospitality taxes.
There is no electricity in the yurts, but battery powered lanterns are provided. This far north, natural light usually stays with you until bedtime. If you use a CPAP, we can run an extension cord to the yurt. Each yurt has its own cast iron propane stove for heat. The main building has heat and air conditioning, and plenty of light for reading or socializing. The large main room doubles as an art studio for the resident artist and she offers many art supplies for guests to paint acrylic in plein air or watercolor at the studio table. The space is clean, modern and has all the amenities for a comfortable stay as we have retreats here all year. The energy is divine! Guest AccessGuests occupy their own private yurt, and each yurt has its own full private bathroom. Guests have full access to the main building which houses the the large common sitting area and art studio, the three private bathrooms, and the full kitchen with propane BBQ outside. The kitchen is fully stocked with staples, condiments, and spices. Guests need only bring any food they wish to prepare for their own meals. Each yurt has its own assigned bathroom. Also, there is a fire pit with plenty of wood, an amphitheater with a large stage for yoga and other activities, along with benches and trails around the property. Interaction with GuestsWe (Julie and Ed) will be available to suggest with hikes, restaurants in town, menus, places to see, boat, fish, kayak as well as with health and healing issues. The NeighborhoodWe border national forest and overlook a beautiful mountain river. This is the last place before many miles of wild, mountain lakes and streams. There are no neighbors to hear or see, only an occasional howl of a coyote or whistle of the train off in the distance. Getting AroundWe are 15 miles and 25 minutes driving into the town of Sandpoint which lies on the beautiful Lake Pend Oreille with beach access, swimming and boating, shopping and restaurants. There is no public transportation this far out. There is about 3/4 mile of dirt road to the property, but it is car friendly. SUVs are welcome, but not necessary. Lots of hiking from the property. Other Things to NoteThe trails around the center are not level or paved, so if you have walking limitations, you may want to consider another venue.
