The space
Our yurt is best suited for adventurous guests seeking a getaway in a private, off-grid setting.

From the marked parking area, the yurt is an 800 foot walk (~10 minutes) uphill to the yurt along a rustic wooded path through the woods. There is no direct vehicle access, so please be prepared to carry in your belongings. A headlamp or flashlight is essential to help you navigate to and from the yurt at night.

The 425 square foot, 24' diameter yurt, has three sliding glass windows that look due East to Mount Washington. Additionally, two windows look out to the forest in back.

The yurt is adjacent to our local network of hiking/biking trails that connect to the summit of Mount Agasszi, which offers stunning views of Franconia Notch. Additionally, within a half hour drive, you have access to some of the best hiking in the North East. We are happy to provide recommendations! The surrounding towns are home to three different breweries, numerous restaurants serving up delicious food and quaint main streets.

**No Fire Policy** There is no heat or campfires at the yurt. We provide woolen blankets and down bedding, but the temperatures can be unpredictable during the late spring and fall. We highly recommend a careful look at the forecast prior to your arrival. The wood stove is permanently dismantled and is not available for guest use.

The yurt has a small solar array and a 1000wh battery which can charge USB devices (like your phone) and power devices with traditional plugs (like your laptop). It will not however, support an AC heater. Due to the fickle nature of the weather, we cannot guarantee power - we like to think of it as a bonus, but should not be relied on. A 60 gallon water tank coupled with a propane heater and pump, provide water for an outdoor shower and potable drinking water. A separate outbuilding houses the outdoor toilet which looks like a normal toilet!

We provide coffee and tea along with a kettle and two-burner gas stove for heating water. Additionally, we provide a gas grill (gas for the stove, grill and water heater is provided!). The yurt has a small, high efficiency refrigerator to store snacks and post-adventure drinks (powered by the solar battery, which is weather dependent. We try our best to update guests prior to check in if the current power supply is too low.) Any food you choose to bring should always be stored in the refrigerator or in the food storage boxes which we supply.

***Please Note*** we do not provide any pots, pans, cooking utensils, plates/bowls etc. This is an attempt to reduce smells and avoid property damage from wildlife including several black bears who make their home on the mountain.

The yurt has a queen-sized bed and a futon, and can comfortably sleep four. Towels, bed linens and extra blankets are provided. Several upholstered chairs make for comfortable indoor seating while deck chairs will allow you to enjoy the sunrise and the stillness of the evening during what we call "pink mountain time." With special permission and a small fee, we can accommodate additional guests if you bring a tent. We ask that all windows be closed when the yurt is empty to make it less inviting for animals, so expect the yurt to be hot on your arrival/return but know that it cools off very quickly once the windows are opened.

We live one town over, so you'll have the property to yourselves, though we are just a phone call away. If you walk the trails, you may encounter a friendly neighbor's dog but all our guests enjoy the privacy and solitude the mountain provides. With that in mind, we ask that you respect both the natural beauty of the mountain as well as the stillness and silence it provides. This property is not appropriate for large or loud groups.
