Eco-Friendly Moon Lodge Yurt w/ Milky Way Views


The moon lodge yurt is the perfect spot to get your glamp on! While this is a pretty basic and very tiny yurt, the glass ceiling makes it one-of-a-kind, and it’s uninhibited sky views are breathtaking. You can even see the Milky Way some nights.

It’s heated in winter by a wood stove, and in the summer months large drapes help keep the sun out during the daylight hours. The yurt sits in a huge field surrounded by trees and trails, so you’ll feel private and secluded during your stay.

    “It’s really just for sleeping, but what a cool spot to sleep.”

    Well in that case why not sleep in a tent or something, because that accommodation is gonna set you back a few greenbacks. And I’d see everything to boot. I know what I’d rather do…

      Well, most tents aren’t very long lasting, as easy to repair, or as durable as a yurt, which can add up on costs to more if you keep needing to repair and replace it and most wouldn’t be as comfortable as a Yurt with an actual bed, level of protection from the elements, etc. Though, not always a big difference as a Yurt is still technically a type of tent but a difference that can be noticeable as a Yurt is more easily made rigid and resistant to wind, easier to add insulating layers, etc…

      Typically a tent wouldn’t allow for a full roof skylight like this has to view the night sky, which in a nice off-grid location can be an amazing view, or if it did it will more likely be plastic and over time degrade the ability to see through it, compared to the glass in this Yurt’s roof, or be an open roof that would leave you exposed to the weather…

      The cost of the platform it’s on would still be included regardless for anything to be permanently there, having a spot that can be regularly visited year round, and off the ground but still able to enjoy the outdoors… While really nice tents can cost quite a bit too and can still “set you back a few greenbacks”, especially equipping it with things like a wood stove, actual bed, etc.

      Though, there are some nice tents that can be quite big and not round, for those who would rather have a more square space, which can more easily be combined with other tents to form a larger structure and more easily equipped with standard furniture and appliances. Like some people have made their own house tents in fairly warm climate zones like Florida, USA and on the high end there’s less noticeable difference in comfort between a tent and a Yurt, as there are some made to handle more extreme climates but just a question of the cost for that range of options…

      So YMMV either way but there’s reasons to choose one over the other depending on what you want out of it…
