So many people are heading out into the wilderness to enjoy the snow. Time to grab that red plaid and head out to the woods. Enjoy your stay in an off-grid, solar, eco yurt, set up for your winter pleasure.
SIGN OF THE PINES is a small Canadian owned venture offering a custom designed, off-grid, eco-friendly yurt rental for cozy, nature immersion, wellness and adventure retreats.
"What an amazing experience. Looking to disconnect from the grind of urban life? Look no further. This place was gorgeous, clean and had so many beautiful and creative touches. The bed was so comfortable. There was more than enough pillows and blankets of great quality, and the fireplace was very warm, even over a -25C weekend. We had everything we needed and more - coffee, tea, cooking supplies, fire starting supplies, and lotion (dry Alberta weather makes this necessary). Plus lots of extras that make this place special and allowed us to really connect to ourselves and nature. All of the recommendations were fun. The check-in and check-out process was easy and Sherri thought of everything before we even got there. I look forward to our next stay. 5 Stars."

A total detox. No Wi-Fi, no running water, no on-grid electricity (just solar panels for lights) but SO MUCH peace and tranquility in the middle of our private forest on the ranch.
A cozy 686 sq ft yurt, with a pellet burning fireplace to keep you toasty warm. A box of Timbits is provided plus tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The composting toilet is ensuite, there is no bathtub, but there is a seasonal, outdoor, solar-heated shower (available from June to August). A basin and wash water is provided, think luxe pioneer!
The yurt is yours to stay in and the Ranch is yours to walk around and explore. After all, the goal of nature immersion is to help you to achieve your full potential and live with passion and purpose. Nature immersion is a lifelong study, and something that we here at Sign of the Pines are passionate about!
