Default Wood Stove Size

Piggybacking on Yurtfolk's question here and Woodyrock's post here, I wonder if there are any general thoughts regarding size, or make and model, of woodstoves in a permanent yurt when winters get down and stay down below freezing regularly. (We don't usually get below 0, but we do regularly get in the singles and teens of a winter.)
We happen to have two potential stoves at our disposal, one a beast of a fireplace insert, and one a much more modest (smallish) step-stove.

Just from what I have seen in my yurt, you are going to want one that can heat almost double the size of your yurt (sq feet).

Bigger is better in this case. you can always damper it back but you can not pump up a small stove.
