This posting is for our rustic camping...
The retreat center is a 4,000 square foot building that houses 2 separate living quarters. One side has a two bedroom apartment, and the other side of the retreat offers 5 bedrooms that can be rented individually.
Our 4 acres of organic gardens offer guests a farm to fork experience that focuses on seasonal eating. We grow and produce about 70% of what we eat, and the rest we purchase from our friends and neighbors. The retreat has 15 acres of wooded hiking and skiing trails that wind along a quarter mile of the very private Buffalo River. Great for kayaking, canoeing, and a dip in the river on a hot day or after a wood stove sauna session. We have a 9-hole Frisbee Golf course onsite, along with horse shoes and other yard games. There is also nearby access to biking, horse riding, ATV, and snowmobile trails. We also have an off-the-grid Monolithic home powered on solar. Tours by request.
You will have free access to the properties gardens, wooded trails, 9-hole Frisbee Golf course, horseshoes, and other yard games. You may use produce from the garden, just ask us first before harvesting. We have 11 gardens that spread over 4 acres, and a guide through them is sometimes needed. We have kayaks and canoes available for rental for $30. There is also a wood stove sauna available for $20 per session. Just ask us to prepare it for you. Also, if you would like a campfire, there is $20 preparation and tending fee. We also have rustic camping opportunities coming soon.
Interaction with guests
We live in a Monolithic Dome home that is located on the property. We will be present on the property, but the retreat location is very private and away from our dwelling, so we can be interactive, or not, which ever is the guests desire. On the Bed & Breakfast side of the retreat center, we make breakfast every morning and have more interaction with the guests.
Other things to note
Dancing Yarrow Retreat also offers wedding and honeymoon packages. We have a newly remodeled barn that seats 80-125 people. We offer seasonal gourmet cuisine and wood-fired pizzas. Make your wedding a retreat for your whole wedding party, from wedding to honeymoon!
We use natural, homeopathic healing practices, and offer health and nutritional consultations and evaluations. Asian facial, hand and body evaluations are used to determine what the bodies organs are saying.
People who come here find that it is a very healing and peaceful place for them to rediscover themselves. Nature has a way of touching the soul, bringing it sunshine when in need. The location, plus the combination of the highly mineralized organic food, adds to an experience that many have never had.
Be as healthy and happy as the day can bring! We do allow dogs, it is as much a dog retreat as a humans. Smoking is okay outside (please throw away garbage), but please not inside.
