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.
Natascha and Stephen were empty-nesters who had spent a lot of time travelling between India and Australia. When their son was able to purchase an acreage that allowed for other dwellings, the couple jumped at the opportunity to erect their off-grid yurt.
They’re both teachers, and while the 8-meter-wide yurt might not be “tiny” to some, this downsize has allowed them to get closer to the land and live more sustainably. One look out their window and you see why you might choose this lifestyle!
I love that while Natascha has downsized significantly, she didn’t cut back to the bare minimum — for example, she loves spinning and weaving, and kept the tools of her trade that she needed! She shared more wisdom with us in the Q&A you can read after the photo tour of her yurt home. Enjoy!
A handful of Biome off-grid yurts have been installed throughout Gatineau Park in Québec, Canada, as an accommodation solution for outdoor enthusiasts who want to extend their stay in the park.
These contemporary yurts have a propane fridge and BBQ, a solar panel, and a wood stove. The structure is made with a wooden trellis, weatherproof canvas, and a dome skylight at the centre which provides ample natural light. During warmer months, the dome can be lifted with a metal crank rod to allow fresh air to enter, and heat to escape.
Mat and Danielle from Exploring Alternatives think this yurt could be an interesting tiny house alternative based on its (relative) portability and affordability, as well as the fact that yurts are considered a temporary structure in many municipalities. The interior design and floor plan could easily be adapted for a more cozy, homey atmosphere instead of the current utilitarian setup. You can see a video tour and photos of the yurt below.
