About Jean Anderson

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

What makes this studio unique

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.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I loved the stay at this yurt. Very tranquil with just the sound of creek. I loved it so much that I am recommending it to lots of friends who will most likely be booking it soon for the summer.

Magical yurt and property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the solar eclipse and could not have been more pleased! Wish we had stayed longer because 2 nights was no where near long enough. Great location and so peaceful, and Jean was so accommodating and patient with us on our late checkout!! Thank you again, Jean. We can't wait to come back and absorb more of the "Mountain".

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 4 night stat at the Eddy Creek Yurt. The Yurt is very comfortable and the deck is a beautiful place to relax with a delightful view of pines and cedars. The highlight was access to our own private creek. We played in the creek, explored its banks, sat in a chair and read in the middle of the creek, and built cairns. We had planned to do one of the many hikes in the area, but ended up just reading, relaxing, and enjoying the nature right outside the Yurt. We will return!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The yurt is amazing. The spotless interior is very spacious and has all the comforts of home with none of the electronic distractions of everyday life. I learned how to FINALLY relax. I literally spend two days on the deck looking at trees, clouds, and Mt. Shasta. (My husband mastered the fine art of doing nothing years ago!) The sound of the creek rocked us to sleep each night. The yurt is only a few minutes from town so it was centrally located for us to go and see everything in the area. It was over 100 degrees while we were there, so we mostly did "car hiking" in our air-conditioned SUV. 😎

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Thank goodness the heat spell has let up. Looked into a portable air conditioner but nothing available for cooling a deluxe tent! Please come back soon. And thank for taking such good care of the yurt.

We enjoyed this place so much. The yurt is very clean, homey and had everything that we needed. We love that there is a creek nearby. Hiking and swimming is just minutes away. There is so much to see and explore. We will definitely be back.
