The space
Taking bookings now for May 15th onwards.

Moonshadow yurt is a beautiful, natural and exotic glamping yurt built in the traditional fashion in Mongolia with hand painted accents throughout and a luxury feel.

Moonshadow sits in the ancient orchard of the 260 yr old heritage farm & sanctuary overlooking rolling hills, a stream and surrounded by forest.

She is equipped with a plush extra thick coil mattress for a super comfy bed suitable for 2 with supplementary beds (chair bed and a fold-away cot) making it suited to a family with 2 children or 4 cozy adults.

The interior of Moonshadow has magical twinkly lights on remote control making for a romantic atmosphere (there are optional ceiling lights and an electric floor lamp too). There are beautiful woollen imported Mongolian rugs - slippers provided to help you cozy up and silk wall hangings. There is a powerplug for charging and an electric heater for cooler Spring morning/evenings.

There is a dining area inside and outside and a decent functional kitchen outside (propane stove top and BBQ) - plates, cutlery, coffee press, towels are all supplied along with delicious limitless fresh drinking water. Please bring your own coffee, tea and essential condiments though small amts are provided. Wifi on site.

A compost toilet is located very near the yurt and must be amongst the best ‘room with a view’ anywhere.

Outside, a double swing provides the perfect invitation to wile away some time reading, relaxing and reconnecting while embracing nature and the sweeping views. **We are excited that this summer will see an on-demand hot shower (propane) and Moonshadow's very own private hot tub.

Come nightfall, your own telescope will come into it's own with 0 light pollution - the star filled skies are astounding. A gell based outdoor fireplace and next no road noise or neighbours provides the ultimate opportunity to relax around the fire (occasionally an ATV maybe heard periodically in season). The resident Great Horned Owls may hoot through the night (ear plugs provided for light sleepers). Ask about delivery of our famous Charcuterie grazing boards right to your door.

Parking is provided beside the yurt except during wet weather when the gravel road may not be usable – in which case the yurt is approximately 150ft from the parking area.

Our farmshop may have additional treats for your stay including our own and neighbouring farms' jams, preserves, honey, eggs, imported cheeses, basic provisions and more. In season we have outdoor seating at the café, a great spot to enjoy the antics of our sanctuary goats and the sweeping scenery. We expect goat yoga to resume with a regular schedule starting in June. *Prebooked lunches, including luxury picnic lunches to take into the field are a special treat for 2022.

An easy walking trail will help you explore the property, while freshwater swimming is very accessible at a nearby provincial park (as well as the beautiful south shore beaches). Bikers will be happy to hear the province's rail to trail biking network connects just down the road. Mahone Bay is very near by, as is the highway and our own sweet neighbourhood convenience store with the ever affable and legendary Sam waiting to welcome you is on our street (3km stroll or quick drive).

Please note: we are strictly NON smoking (all types) and a no pet facility. There is open water on the property, making us unsuitable for wandering children. As a working farm - it is mandatory that all children stay with parents at all times.

*While we have stopped offering tours since COVID, guests are able (fine weather dependent) to enjoy one on one time with our friendly goats. Sturdy footwear required, wellies recommended. Also ask about our special classes in Be a Farmer and Introduction to Cheese making - where you can be hands on making your very own cheese ($65 or $95 for 2ppl, depending on class), collect eggs or learn to milk a goat

Where you’ll be

Blockhouse, Nova Scotia, Canada

Located on one of the original settler homesteads of Lunenburg County dating to the 1760s, we are set on 80 acres yet surrounded by 1000s more acres of forest and fields - while just a few minutes drive to Mahone Bay, Bridgewater and the highway taking you to Chester (and the famous Nordic Spa) or onto Halifax in under an hour or south to the wonderful white beaches and sites of the remainder of the south shore . A freshwater swimming lake provincial park is nearby and is accessible via a decent bike ride. The Rail to Trails network is on our doorstep.

I'm a city girl from Newfoundland who's lived abroad and traveled for many years before finally returning to Canada to become the crazy goat lady in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. I used to work in sticky issues like over-fishing and environmental conflict - and well, sooner or later everyone in those fields wants to take up a few goats and live simply (only half kidding). I'm a massive animal lover and have spent a great many years traveling, reading, taking courses, helping out on others, and finally - now, having my very own farm. And now my own micro-dairy, a goat cheese creamery where we produce all manner of deliciousness. I hope I'm down to earth and welcoming. I don't get to travel much anymore (ever....) and hosting guests is a nice way for me to have some human interaction.. I love supporting others in learning heritage skills and living a bit closer to the land. I'm a Carpe diem type of person. There may occasionally be the stray piece of hay in your room (sorry but it's a farm... sigh), but you won't want for a warm welcome.

During your stay

We are always reachable and enjoy having a pleasant chat with guests when possible, however, we are busy farmers and also appreciate our guests often come for peace and relative solitude.
