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.
The yurt is cozy, welcoming and contained everything necessary for a great stay. Loved the surrounding woods, the creek and the amazing stars. A place to relax and rejuvenate!
Thank you so much to Jean and Bill for their amazing yurt! I had such a wonderful and healing time there surrounded by nature. If you have never stayed in a yurt this is the one to go for it with! You have all of the amenities you could imagine, yet you feel very connected to nature. You can hear the creek even in the late dry summer. The stars at night are phenomenal. The bed is so comfortable. The bathroom is lovely. I can go on and on! The deck outside is fantastic. And Mt. Shasta is a must see!
Calling this a 'yurt' hardly covers what a lovely place it is to stay in the mountains. Our kids loved the bunk bed, we loved the great kitchen and spotlessly clean bathroom with shower. We all loved the creek nearby and the hummingbirds feeding in the trees outside.
What an amazing location, extremely comfortable lodging, and the forest around us was the cherry on top. Jean and Bill were wonderful hosts and made us feel like visiting family. Thank you, so much! And please tell Bear that we miss him already :-) We will be back!!!
We enjoyed Jean's hospitality and loved meeting her dog Bear and grandchild. She steered us in the right direction with things to do on such a short stay. We loved the quiet nights and exploring the nearby creek and roasting smores at the fireplace. The place is so spacious inside with lots of reading material, board and card games, and a full working kitchen to have a family of 4 all cooking. The kids loved using the cart to bring items down to the yurt. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept really well.

We loved staying here and wanted to plan a second visit the moment we stepped on that beautiful decking. The yurt was stunning and the facilities were of an extremely high quality. We loved the tranquil location and the proximity to the creek, which we enjoyed listening to around the clock, it was like a lullaby. The girls were really happy and we had so much space to spread out. Bill and Jean are the kindest, loveliest people and they are the perfect couple to be meeting new people all the time. They exuded friendliness and calm. Thank you for sharing this special place with us! Easily our favourite accommodation of our month's trip.
