Aurora Farms on San Juan Island

Located on San Juan Island off the Washington Coast is a place called Aurora Farms. We recently went there to field scout for Hipcamp and had a blast! There’s a yurt on the property, a succulent garden, an Airstream, a house with a living roof and even a farm store. Scroll down to see what we saw!


DSCF5733You know how we love yurts … this is glamping at its best!DSCF7298DSCF7296DSCF5725How sweet is the interior? It sleeps four …

When we were building the tiny home in Asheville, we originally wanted a living roof. It ended up not being in our budget but we still get a kick out of seeing them in real life. They were pretty common in the PNW (did you see our tree house posts?!) and have us hoping for the day we can make our dream a reality.

And believe it or not, this is the upstairs of the barn!


There’s a ton of space on the property for people to go camping! Check out this little island!

And last but not least, Lori Ann, the host, hopes to soon convert this newly acquired Airstream into guest housing! We can’t think of a more perfect place to crash.
