In 1998, your hosts, Jean and Bill Anderson bought 40 acres along Eddy Creek, at the foot of Mount Eddy, with spectacular views of Mount Shasta. After summers in the tipi, they built and lived in the yurt for two years while designing and building a new house above the upper meadow. Jean is a Breema bodyworker and instructor, certified Yoga instructor, artist and has had a healing practice since 1996. 'Something about this land and the yurt supports rest, nurturing, renewal, creativity, adventure ... whatever our guests have come for.'
Jean Anderson purchased this studio in 2005
As you contemplate your stay at Eddy Retreat we invite you to take the idea of vacation a little deeper and consider the option of an “intentional vacation” – using the ritual of vacation as an opportunity to create a breakthrough in one’s life, to explore an edge of potential growth, a habitual pattern of behavior or point of view which you would like to shed for a new way of being in the world. Your intention might involve risk, either emotional or physical, taking on a goal that’s been on the back of your mind for some time which fear or habit has kept you from exploring. Your vacation could be an adventure into this territory. An “intentional vacation” is an opportunity to set up your get away so that you come back a new person.
If you choose the option of an “intentional vacation” we offer support as facilitators of your adventure in self-discovery and breakthrough. Even before you arrive, Jean offers coaching to support you in creating your intention for your vacation. If your focus is on emotional or physical healing Jean offers her 20 years of experience as a practitioner of self-healing arts. She is a certified Yoga instructor and Breema™ practitioner. If your focus is on outdoor challenge and adventure we can refer you experienced guides to take you safely to your edge and beyond.
If an “intentional vacation” interests you, let us know when you call for reservations.
We spent a wonderful week in the quiet of the woods and the loving embrace of the yurt. What a truly special place this is! You feel immediately welcomed, safe and relaxed as you arrive. Your shoulders drop, your breath deepens and you can´t help but smile as you realize this will be your haven for the next few days. Everything you need is there, and every little detail creates a warm and cozy feeling. Thank you Jean, for opening this place for us and other guests, and thank you for beeing such a welcoming and helpful host! I recommend all to book at least one bodywork session with Jean, you will leave totally blissed out! This is a place my sister and I will never forget, and a place we hope to return to. Thank you!
We just got back from 2 nights in the Yurt today, and the only way to describe our stay is "A little piece of Heaven". The Yurt was so much more than we expected. We are a family of 4, with one of our children being a teenager. We had tons of room in the Yurt. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. There was snow on the deck of the Yurt from a storm a couple of days before our stay, and outside it was very cold, but inside the Yurt it was 70 degrees. The Yurt is stocked with everything you could possibly need except the food you would like to eat during your stay.
Thank you so much to Jean for the wonderful ideas on where to hike right around the Yurt. The area around it is just beautiful! The creek is probably a 2 minute walk away, and the sound of it is all you hear as you drift off to sleep at night.
We have rented many cabins and homes in the area through VRBO, and this is by far our favorite. I am checking our calendar tonight to see when we can go back!
We booked a last minute weekend stay in this wonderful yurt and loved it! The yurt is very comfortable and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the wood stove, as well as the fire pit and bbq outside on the deck. The scenery is relaxing, peaceful, and beautiful - we went on a few small walks to the nearby creek. We can't wait to come stay again soon!
I highly recommend this place if you're looking to do some "glamping." We didn't leave the yurt at all the entire weekend, except to hike around the property. Great peek a boo views of mount shasta. Also really enjoyed the deck and bbq!
From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and comfortable. The yurt is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We really felt like we were part of the natural world again! I hope to return again before too long. Maybe a summer or winter get-away is next!
The yurt has everything one needs for a wonderful little getaway. The owners once lived in the yurt themselves so it really is a home away from home. Jean and Bill were very sweet and accommodating, and the land is incredibly beautiful. My intention was to be unplugged, but it was helpful that both my cell and internet worked (on my phone) without a problem. The town of Mt. Shasta is just about twenty minutes away. But really, the energy of all the trees and the creek running through the property---just sitting on the deck and watching the birds, jackrabbits, and lizards was the greatest time spent.
