YURT Life!

An excellent park-like setting - woods, rustic, serene, relaxing, and lots of privacy. The yurt is set up with all the little things you would need for a relaxing stay - a bad wind/rain storm couldn't even put a damper on the experience. Nolan was available if/when we needed him. An excellent place to stay - we will be back!!!

Owner's reply:

Thank you Shawna. Glad it worked out for you two.

Total privacy just outside of Fairhaven

Beautiful setting near forest and many hiking trails. Total privacy in the yurt with all the basics for cooking and an attached bathroom. Very close to Fairhaven.

Thanks Ladies. It was great having you!

Loved it!

We had a lovely time in the yurt. It backs on to an endless forest with a meandering creek. The yurt had more than what we needed. It was warm and cozy. Nolan was friendly but gave us our space. It was like we were in a world of our own. I didn't want to leave and I would definitely visit again.

Owner's reply:

Thank you Sasha for your kind words.

My husband and I stayed here for a week in May- our first time seeing a yurt before! Its very small, but quaint and private. Loved staring into the woods through the windows and skylight, as well as the bathroom window. There is a toaster oven, mini fridge, and a hot plate (which we discovered is a portable burner) so we were able to eat most of our meals there. Plenty of blankets so we were more than warm enough at night without a heater running. (Temp was down to low 50s and upper 40s at night while we were there.) The bathroom was not yet insulated so it was very damp in there which meant the bathmats and towels never dried if left in there. I draped the towels over the chairs most of the time to keep them dry; the bathmats stayed damp most of the time since we had mostly rainy days. Great for those who love the woodsy setting and are adventurous! We would stay there again.

Rustic Ambiance

The accommodations were wonderfully charming in every way. Cute as a bug's ear with loving and creative attention obviously given to every little detail. Ditto the positives I see others have said. Babbling creek night music. Respectful hosts. Highly recommend!

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind words Catherine. It was lovely having you.

Nolan's Yurt

Overall, the Yurt is splendid and is somewhat secluded at the start of a wooded area and the property line of the owner's yard. The utilities are good however the cooking area is small. The shower is wonderful although there was no shower curtain so the rugs were wet regularly. The place has two heaters so it is fairly warm except when the power went out. Nolan, the owner, is a wonderfully supportive person who wanted to ensure I had all the comforts needed for my stay. He's friendly and respects the renters privacy. One footnote, the t.v. isn't top quality and the sound goes out regularly. It isn't a problem if you do not watch t.v. but I did at night when it rained. Overall, I loved the place. I would stay again and could gladly live there it is so pleasant.

Highly recommended

I really enjoyed staying in this Yurt. My dog Canela had a lot of room to run around, and there is a creek below to explore in. The room was clean and tidy with movies, books and games to entertain. I was impressed with the accommodations and shower was really hot! The bed was comfy and overall the yurt was cozy. I liked staying here and would come again if I ever needed a getaway or place to stay. Thank you Nolan!

cozy, secluded woodland retreat.

Great yurt set back on the edge of the "yard" looking into the woods. Simple composting toilet and rustic but warm shower. Inside the yurt it's super cozy and a great place to kick your feet up after a long day of hiking in the hills. Nolan couldn't have made It any easier to book and pay for the days I wanted. Highly recommended.
