Looking for a unique healing retreat in the heart of Saratoga Springs region? The Luminous Yurt is an authentic Mongolian yurt complete with electricity, wi-fi, AC and pellet stove heat. It's just a few steps away from your own private outdoor shower ,and 1/2 bath inside our home. Enjoy your own magical space set amongst a verdant backyard with a fish pond & curved bridge. Be sure to ask about the onsite massage and energy healings Shari can offer you during your stay.

The space
The luminous yurt (Mongolian: ger) was hand-made by a family in Mongolia. It is 19' in diameter and 284 square feet of circular serenity. Its curved lattice walls (khana) and sloped ceiling of 81 poles (unis) support a large round skylight (toono) all covered in breathable cotton canvas and lambs wool insulation that come together to gently cradle you in a calming space unlike any western dwelling. The sounds of nature softly enter the space and abundant natural daylight shines through the toono. The vented (but waterproof) toono and screened front doors provide excellent ventilation. AC keeps you cool and dry on hot summer days. In colder weather you'll stay cozy in the warmth and glow radiating from the glass front pellet stove.

Guest access
The Luminous Yurt is your own private oasis with a three-season separate entrance (in the winter you must enter through the house). You will have private use of the 1/2 bath on the first floor in our home and your exclusive outdoor shower. The large verdant backyard is yours to relax in and enjoy with a fish pond & bridge, gardens, fire pit, and hammock.
*PLEASE NOTE: We do try to keep eating to a minimum in the yurt to discourage any visits from creatures large and small. You are welcome to relax on the deck, or we can set a table for you near the pond.

Other things to note
The Luminous Yurt is a sacred retreat. Esteemed healers from around the globe have offered their gifts and teachings in the space. The vibration is palpable.

During your stay
We would be honored to be your hosts! We can give you as much privacy as you wish and/or we would love to tell you about all the cultural, natural and spiritual activities our unique area has to offer. We can also design a healing retreat to further enhance your journey. Shari is a licensed massage therapist and shamanic healing practitioner. You can roll right off the massage table and into bed, sipping your herbal tea and dozing off to the sounds of nature. Nick would also be happy to help you plan some hikes or paddles in nearby nature parks or the vast Adirondack Park.
