Sunset Yurt is tucked up on a knoll in the forest on 33 private mountainside acres at Nurture Through Nature.
Sunset Yurt offers westerly views through the treetops, a unique retreat for contemplation, reflection, and art. Our inspiration at Nurture Through Nature is to create spaces for private, peaceful refuge within the forest, surrounded by nature’s beauty. Unplug into your own private off the grid retreat on the slopes of Pleasant Mountain. Make this your base for outdoor recreation and eco~adventures. The Sunset Yurt is accessible by foot along a rugged, sloped trail; a short climb to your own private sanctuary.
Sunset Yurt does not have solar electricity or wi~fi. We provide the Yurt with oil lamps and tea lights. There is no running water at your yurt; however, we do supply you with jugs of pure mountain water, and a compost toilet nearby. There is not a bathroom in the yurt. There is a warm shower at the top of the access road, where you can refill your jugs for drinking, cooking and dishes. This is a about a 7 minute hike. We provide the yurt with a 2-burner propane stove for your simple cooking along with all the dishes, utensils, pots/pans, etc. You heat your yurt by wood stove for your tending and we provide ample wood for your stay.
We have a NO pet policy in our Yurts. (Harmony eco~cabin is pet friendly.)
The yurt is surprisingly big and the iron stove is very effective. It’s very secluded and quiet. The property is large with hiking paths and a creek. Very clean.
We loved our visit! Plenty of hammocks and swimming spots to enjoy. The yurt was cozy and clean, with all the supplies we needed to enjoy the woods in comfort.
What an amazing getaway! Just what we needed for some time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Everything was well explained and our yurt was clean and tidy and everything we needed was available to us or explained to us ahead of time. We will definitely be back!
What a lovely, relaxing retreat! I enjoyed exploring the property (other huts and yurts scattered deeper in the woods) and the surrounding area (hiked Pleasant Mountain, which lives up to the name). Jen was very helpful and communicative via text. I hope to be back!
Enjoyed our stay the property was beautiful and super relaxing. Thank you Jen!
