A few words about our shared accommodations:

  • Yurt ($425, 8 spots): A yurt is a traditional round structure build for sustainability, durability and warmth. Yurts were originally created in Turkey and Mongolia and used by nomadic people as long-term settlements. The original translation of the word means “home”. Modern yurts display beautifully designed wood work and can be used to live in year round. They are a wonderful, sustainable way to cozy up to nature without giving up comfort. Each yurt comes with 3-4 double beds with warm bedding and comforters.

  • Canvas Bell Tents ($415, 6 spots): Canvas tents are charming and rustic structures built to accommodate 2-4 people. The thick canvas and wooden platform insulates from the cold and heat retention throughout the night. Each tent comes with 3-4 double beds with warm bedding and comforters. Additional blankets and comforters are available.

  • Main house indoor accommodations ($465, 4 spots): If you prefer to stay indoors, the retreat space features 2 rustic shared bedrooms in the main building.

  • Bring your own tent ($300, 2 spots): You can bring your own tent and stay in a private area of the land with full access to indoor amenities.

Transportation and Location: The retreat space is located 20 minutes from the New Paltz bus station. We will be sending all the details in our welcome email.
