I appreciated the open feel of this place that looked and felt like a whimsical hippie hollow. Moriah is a terrific cook and massage therapist, so go! The meals are fairly identical, so I'd recommend staying 1-3 nights only, and do buy the eating plan simply because staying on this beautiful property (walks, swings, fountains, balconies, comfy chairs) is rejuvenating...

Mariah was more than empathetic to our needs, and went out of her way to ensure our great stay. My husband & I wanted a reprieve from our stressful work lives involving computers & high-tech gadgets, so we came here for our anniversary. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Mariah & Scott, who were both down-to-earth & friendly. We... More

My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary retreat. We stayed in the Sky Loft and the view was spectacular. This is a place you go to connect with nature, your partner/friends, and yourself. No TV, no bar, just an amazing setting, delicious wholesome food, and Moriah's bodywork is incredible. This truly is a sanctuary. Can't wait to return.

I travelled on my own and stayed in the Sky Loft room. It was immaculately clean as well as being simply and amply furnished. I particularly liked the communal dining arrangement. The food was fresh, vibrant and more than ample for me. Fresh fruit and other snacks were available all the time too. The vibe is easy going and accommodating... More

If you would like to stay at the Rainbow Hearth and enjoy your experience, bring your own food, coffee maker, coffee, hair-dryer, cooler or mini fridge, and don’t expect to feel great about your stay or that you can relax. My husband and I regret deciding to stay at Rainbow Hearth. The host greeted us and immediately you got the... More

Three of us shared the Sunset room. The accommodation was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. Beautiful view of tree tops, birds, and Lake Buchanan from our balcony. The 3 meal a day plan was perfect for us. Every attempt was made to fulfill our wish for healthy, satisfying food choices. Great nature walks and water activities readily accessible. Friendly staff made... More

We stayed in the treehouse yurt with the separate "outhouse" (Ha ha!) and it was wonderful. Very clean, comfortable, and secluded. The food was simple but delicious. The owner and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Near great hiking and wineries. You'll want to eat here because, yes, the hearth is a little remote to get anywhere else, but also... More

Our Valentines weekend stay at Rainbow Hearth started when we pulled into the driveway and were greeted by friendly "Shadow" and "Sunshine" the resident 4 legged welcoming committee, followed by Scott the human caretaker. We stayed in Blue Heron suite with the wrap around deck, but had the opportunity to visit the other suites while they were empty. The yurt... More

We visited Rainbow Hearth Sanctuary for our 5th anniversary in mid-October. We stayed in the oh-so-fun tree house yurt. That's right a tree house yurt! Technically its a deck built up into the trees with the yurt on the deck and a separate bathroom with a walk in 2 person soaker tub and a skylight to the stars. We loved... More

Awesome,amazing. My wife was in Burnet for work over the weekend which left me with a lot of time to fill. We stayed in the yurt and it was great. I was able to fill the day with things to do around the property and I did not even experience it all. Read the book in your room it gives... More
