I stayed in Yurt number 6 in the Yurt Village at Land of the Medicine Buddha retreat center. The yurt village is over half a mile from the main buildings (including the dining room), which meant that every day, just to hike down to my car or to have breakfast was a trek. Again it had the feeling of being in another country – except the bath and kitchen hut (below) was well stocked. The yurt had electricity and thankfully the bed had some sort of heating mechanism under the covers so when it got chilly at night (I only battened down the hatches on my 2nd or 3rd night there), I could keep my feet warm using the electric warmer. There were several other people doing yoga or being contemplative in the yurt village. I stayed there for four nights. At $80 a night, it was a tad expensive, considering breakfast and lunch were extra. In the future, I would not purchase the breakfast meals. They left a lot wanting. There is a fridge up at the kitchen hut, so I could have easily fixed all my own meals. The would definitely have beat paying $7 for breakfast and $13 for a vegetarian lunch (mostly vegan and too much soy for my liking).
