I went for solitude and that is what I received. It's a beautiful location, on top of a mountain, surrounded by other mountains that I could look over and ponder life. I spent most of my time on the ample deck day and night, the stars were brilliant, the rising of the moon over the mountains beyond beautiful. The inside of the yurt was well appointed; the bed was comfortable, the kitchen adequate for cooking anything you could want, the views amazing. I highly recommend Jennifer Henderson, Massage Therapist – she has amazing talent. The drive up the mountain was scary the first time because it is gravel and quite steep, but I got over that after driving up & down the mountain a few times. My only regret is that I didn’t follow another reviewer when he said that he thought #6 was the best – I didn’t request a specific yurt. I stayed in #1 which is fine except that it is the 1st yurt on the road to the other 5 yurts, and so I could hear every car that went by – there weren’t that many cars, but since all roads are gravel I could hear each and every vehicle. I was further disappointed when I realized at the end of my stay that the yurts further away from the “busy” road weren’t used the entire time that I was there – I would think that the management would put a first time guest in one of the better yurts. In addition, the internet for my yurt didn’t work the entire time I was there, even though the management tried to get it fixed, and allowed me to use their office whenever I needed internet. Also, the water pressure in the shower was terrible, but was fine in the other faucets. I didn’t mention that problem to management until the day before I left, management offered to put a new shower head on, but I told them not to worry about it as I didn’t want to be disturbed. I would recommend Stone Wind to everyone, whether one wants solitude or romance, it is a perfect place for it – just specifically ask for #’s 4, 5, or 6.
