The yurt makes a wonderful setting for some retreat time, a yoga marathon, playing/composing music, or whatever personal activity might benefit from being surrounded by forest without being actually in the forest.
The yurt is a bright, airy space with five giant (almost 4×4′) windows offering a panoramic view of the forest around you. The windows are screened and some are fitted with transparent plastic to provide a good balance of ventilation and view. A large transparent dome at the peak lets in lots of light, opens for ventilation, and allows a delightful view of the sky.
The yurt frame and door wood were sourced in Ontario/Quebec, off-the-ground floor made from local maple, breathable-waterproof-windproof outer skin (not vinyl!), and inner lining of wool felt.
The yurt is just steps to the Forest Labyrinth, which is within sight through the pine boughs. There is also a modern, clean, cedar-lined privy serviced by a flush-action portable toilet. A portable power box is available to provide electricity for low-wattage items like device chargers, LED lights, etc.
