We stayed over a fall weekend and loved the peaceful seclusion. The first night was very windy and the yurt was noisy until my husband figured out the flaps had not been secured. Although it was below freezing outside, the heater(s) kept the yurt cozy. The hot tub was perfect at sunset and under the stars. Check in and out...

What a unique experience this was that we cannot wait to go again in December! The quaint yurts have a fully stocked kitchen. Ours had a beautiful little book about "unwinding". The hot tub is fully secluded and private. You cannot go wrong with either level you select. These have become more and more popular, so book early. We had...

Stayed here for our anniversary weekend. Great unique accommodations. The yurt is awesome! Very friendly staff, check in and out were both a breeze. So peaceful and quiet. Wish we could have stayed longer!

When we set out to this place, I had mixed feelings about it. I honestly did not know what to expect, but oh my how I was blown away. We stayed 5 nights and it honestly was amazing and intimate. There's a hot tub on the patio, which gives a perfect view of the mountains. The yurt makes noise as...

We booked a weekend at this retreat this past weekend. Upon checking in, everything seemed great. Office staff were friendly. We were told that someone would be by the next morning to check the hottub but otherwise we'd go undisturbed. Next morning, the same office lady came banging on our door, and without one question, started accusing us of "contaminating"...

Mandy P, this is Suzanne Parnell, the owner of StoneWind Retreat. I have just now become aware of your comments here (and am investigating why it took so long for me to learn of this.) I have already reached out directly to RS, the friend who accompanied you, but I also want to offer you an apology for what happened....

We stayed in the Sanctuary Suite and it was perfect. I was impressed with how clean it was! Nice amenities and they really have everything you could need except food. I appreciated how quiet it was and how everyone keeps to themselves. Very cute and romantic. A little pricey but worth it for an awesome getaway!

My husband and I absolutely loved the experience of staying in the yurt at stonewind retreat. It had everything u needed except food. You have to bring your own food to cook in the kitchen or on the grill outside the yurt. It was secluded enough that u wouldn't have to see anyone. Also loved the hot tub on the...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! What a relaxing, quiet, beautiful place this is. If you want to get away from it all this is definitely a great place to do it. The Yurt is so comfortable and clean. Well appointed and well designed. And the hot tub under the stars - just lovely. The staff is warm and supportive. Get here if you can!...

We stayed here for the first time for our wedding anniversary, and I have to say, this is one of our new favorite vacation destinations! We stayed in the sanctuary suite and it was wonderful.
