The yurt is conveniently located in its very own countryside where guests are free to explore as they please. Located 10 minutes to the center of the Village of Waterville, known for its family of outlaws in the mid 19th century. Just down the road from Route 20 and 12, it is only 10 miles to the Village of Hamilton, upstate New York, home of Colgate Univeristy. The Charles E. Baker State Forest is a 30-minute drive and is home to multiple outdoor recreations.
