Octagon Water Forest Retreat in Connecticut

Here’s an awesome 144 square foot tiny house that’s similar to a yurt. The wooden octagon is a lovely private getaway secluded on 100 acres of wild land.

There’s a comfortable bed inside the cabin, along with an electric fireplace that keeps the place warm. A heated outhouse nearby houses a composting toilet.

Wait until you see the craftsmanship on the ceiling of this yurt! Check it out on Airbnb.

    So pretty and romantic! I love the outdoor spaces. It makes staying there a little more enjoyable. Beautiful ceiling, too. The whole place is pretty magical.

      Much better than a cramped hotel room!

    I just love the way the outdoor layout looks. So organized and peaceful. This must be late fall or early spring season, considering there is no leaves in some areas.
    But all in all, I give this 2 thumbs up!
