This was exactly what we were looking for. What an incredible experience! Bill and Mike were really helpful. We were the guinea pigs for the cold season and we were comfortable all weekend. Plenty of firewood in quite possibly the best place to cozy up! We highly recommend staying on this property. What a treat! Thank you!

This Yurt is an incredible experience! You are extremely secluded in the woods, and the inside of the Yurt is furnished very comfortably. The hosts were very helpful in getting us settled in. It's a perfect getaway place and very cozy with the wood stove, we didn't want to leave!

We had one of our best experiences so far on Airbnb when we visited this yurt. It was such a peaceful, stunning location for anyone who likes nature. The wood burning stove was so romantic and made the evening cozy and warm. You won't be disappointed!

The yurt is a unique place to stay, and my husband and I had a wonderful, relaxing night there. Our dog loved it even more, since there were plenty of trails to explore and she could run around like a maniac! It was the perfect place to get away from the city and unwind amongst the trees. Plus, Mike was very flexible with our check in time, and he gave us a thorough walkthrough of how to use everything when we arrived.

Unique place to stay. Yurt is modern, clean, spacious, and comfortable. All amenities to cook with are provided. Maintained trails for walking around the property. Hosts were easy to reach and attentive. Really great place for an outdoor weekend getaway from Toronto.

This Yurt is better than you think it is. The outside area is a beautiful forest well away from other people. Inside the Yurt, you won't want to leave. The wood fireplace and the skylight are all we needed. We hibernated in the Yurt to relax and tune out so that we could reset from a crazy summer. This is that kind of place. Also, Bill and Mike are great and excellent at communication. Mike was there for our needs, even though we had only one. Thanks again, we'll be back!
