Could be better, not quite as expected
For the reasons we rented this property I would love to give 5 stars, but after many exchanges with property owner, I have to give 3 stars, as questions & concerns I asked of her never were answered. Instead, she nitpicked our stay and in all honesty, demanded a lot of money for something that simply is not worth spending $1,000.00 for. We have rented million dollar beach homes and the like for that price range in past years. The address on docs is for a real roundhouse across the road from this property (off limits), and this is a large tent-type structure supported on wooden locust posts, and old and needs some proper upgrading it to make it what the owner believes it is so what is described in the VRBO/HomeAway specs is accurate in the future for guests... This is a remote property and lots of long established wildlife abounds of all types small & large. The water supply (spring box) is a simple 3/4" black roll pipe stuck in the creek run on top the ground to a cement block where a standard sillcock is installed on it, so will freeze if cold enough outside (make sure you bring plenty of water in this case as we did for cooking , cleaning, drinking). The heat is a couple old oil heaters (one corded end was burnt up), but the electrical system is not designed for any type electrical heating appliance to be safely used long term so you will have to bring propane or similar heaters as we did in colder weather. Maximum safe ability is 20amps 120 volt continuous. Bring a propane stove or similar too for cooking needs, lantern, utensils, etc. The compost toilet described (is not) and is an eclectic type outhouse structure with no heat unfortunately. You will need to bring fold out tables as we did so you can set up supplies inside this yurt and keep them off the floor as well as a way to clean your dishes, much like when you were in Boy Scouts... There only is a small old table with couple antique chairs, a couch & futon and couple table lamps in it. The wood floor has two area rugs on it (we slept on these with bedrolls/sleeping bags). If you require anything further, bring it as we did with our trailer beforehand. All in all, if you enjoy being outdoors, camping in the rough, etc living on an older wooded property then this will be good fit for you. If you expect certain conveniences normally found in rental properties, be prepared to stay in this as if you were on a tent camping trip for a week.
