We were unsure how it would be to stay in a Yurt but these buildings were comfy and cozy! Atmosphere was very relaxing and quite. Hot tub was private. The whole experience was very enjoyable. The yurt was very clean, everything was there that you needed for a great weekend.

My wife and I just stayed at the StoneWind Retreat for our sixth anniversary. The location was in the middle of nowhere which we were looking forward to expecting privacy. However, when we arrived we noticed all the yurts but the Sanctuary were basically right on top of one another. We could hear other couples ehhmm...noises inside of our yurt.... More

We visited Stonewind this weekend. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The yurts were clean, comfortable, and fully equipped with everything you would ever need. It's in a beautiful, quiet location with loads of beautiful scenery. We saw several deer while we were there too. It was absolutely perfect. If you go, they have movies you can check... More

My husband and I just returned from our two-night stay celebrating our honeymoon at StoneWind Retreat and I have to just start out by saying "WOW!!!!!". My husband came across this place online and I'll admit that at first I was very skeptical since I had never heard of these things called "yurts" before and at first glimpse, it looked... More

I found this unique yurt experience after looking for "unique places to stay" in Arkansas... after reading the full, complete website, I decided to book a yurt for our 21st anniversary. (I'm an avid reader) The driving directions to get there were very good, and with my phone's map, we did just fine. The gravel roads are well maintained, although... More

We enjoyed this wonderful location so much. The yurts are so spacious and cozy at the same time. Spotless interiors and decks with gorgeous views. Our first day was rainy so we snuggled up reading and just talking about everything and nothing :). 2nd day we woke to sunlight flooding in to start our day. We headed into Fayetteville and... More

Never been in a Yurt ? Me neither. I thought it was nothing more than a glorified tent, but it's so much more. Heck, I've stayed in many a hotel that wasnt as nice. (and I dont mean "motel".) The ride was easy, the accommodations, MORE than adequate. Well apportioned and a fully stocked kitchen. Of course, the hut tub... More

I found StoneWind Retreat online, and after reading the reviews, decided it would be a perfect location for my husband and my honeymoon. We were not disappointed! We bought groceries at the Walmart in town and spent the first night grilling steaks and enjoying the deck...we even ended up getting in the hot tub with a glass of champagne to... More

Never been anywhere like it! The hot tub yurts are worth the money. Bring DVDs, no internet, no cable no phones. So quiet! Very relaxing. Can go to ft smith if you need to but bring everything with you so you don't have to leave! Need two nights to enjoy all of it! Not a place for kids, nothing for... More

We have been here several times, it is wonderful. Very quiet, wildlife everywhere. Private hot tub on the deck. Yes. Have been there in April in a thunderstorm, fun, Yurt held up just fine. Also was there in November, 17 degrees outside, no problem staying warm with furnace and gas stove. Hot tubing in 17 degree weather, #frozenhair Fayetteville is... More
