Staying in this spacious and comfortable 16 ft. Yurt on our horse farm is like camping with the luxury of a queen sized bed, camp kitchen and NO crowds. Snuggle down in the comfortable queen sized bed with down comforters and lots of pillows. Prepare simple meals on the propane burner, and use the sink with bottled water for washing up. Dishes, pots and pans provided, of course! Dine by candlelight while watching the moon rise over the marsh. Fall asleep to the sound of frog song.

We arrived at 5 pm on a Friday, the busiest week end of the year on Orcas Island, to check in to the Yurt we had booked many weeks ago, only to find that the owner had made a double booking and someone was already occupying the Yurt. The owner admitted to the error and used her personal network to...

While looking for a quick get-away with some horse riding lessons on the side, I discovered this great place and met some new friends. The yurt is what we used to call "dry camping" - no running water, electricity, or bathroom facilities. However, there is a very clean compost toilet close by that is well maintained and has a great...

About the neighborhood
This small farm is nestled in a valley with a waterfowl refuge to the east and 200 acres of woods to the north. Horses, horsmanhip lessons, rabbits, chickens, and organic veggies. Located in the sunniest part of Orcas, in a very private location. YOu can walk to the Deer Harbor Dock, go whale watching or kayaking or hang out on the sandy beach. Great nature hikes right from the farm. Terriffic birding - especially when birds are migrating! Take the ferry from Annacortes to Orcas Island, head towards Deer Harbor, and right after the Deer Harbor Inn, turn right on Channel Rd.
Car not needed
