Zugang für Gäste
Full access to the yurt. The space is all yours. Note: the yurt is in our backyard but it is still private and for even more the large state forest is steps away. The outdoor shower and hot tub are totally protected from view.

Weitere wichtige Infos
Why the hot tub usually isn't available in winter. We are committed to off-grid living which means we are dependent on the sun for our power. This effects the hot tub because we use an electric pump to fill it. November thru February the amount of sunlight we receive in western MASS is diminished. The sun is low in the sky and the weather can be more cloudy. The outdoor shower is weather dependent because it can freeze. The yurt is a very special place, especially in the winter, and we work hard within our given systems to be kind to nature and to accommodate our guests. Depending on the weather it may be possible to offer the hot tub during the winter. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.
This is a unique property and we want to be sure you know what to expect. For example, you will need to stoke the fire once or twice in the night to stay warm during the winter. Please use "Contact Host" to tell why you are drawn to staying in a yurt when you request a booking.
-We request that our guests be fragrance-free so the next guests arrive to a clean smelling yurt.
-The hot tub is a Soaking Tub. We ask guests to shower and wash off (especially deodorants) prior to getting in the tub.

I am easy-going, friendly and appreciate the opportunity, via airbnb, to avoid the sterility and mass market atmosphere of traditional travel in the US. It is a pleasure to be invited "behind the scenes of a place" and get to know it better vs the chain hotel-drive-by experience that really irks me.
My partner Alistair and I live off-the-grid surrounded by state forest in western MA. Our neighbors are moose, Great Blue Herons, coyotes and owls yet 20 minutes to the south is the famed Pioneer Valley - 5 colleges (UMASS, Smith, Holyoke, Amherst and Hampshire), vibrant local agriculture and a very progressive political culture. We have a wood-fired hot tub from which we study and enjoy the night sky, bats and a Night Hawk. We finished renovating our historic house and invite you to come stay in our beautiful yurt.
