One of the lovely parts about yurt-living is the built-in skylight in the center of the yurt roof. This one sends “Orange Sunshine” into the interior, thus the building’s quaint name.
This electricity-free structure sits in the “middle of nowhere” with beautiful river views and plenty of natural seclusion. In the cold months you can light the woodburning stove, and there’s a queen bed and futon where guests can sleep.
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.
Now this looks like a cozy spot to stay in rural New York! The yurt treehouse sits on 27 acres, and is packed with a library that’s sure to make any bibliophile happy. You’ll feel like a wise old owl, curled up in a comfy chair reading a great book with woodland views.
The treehouse itself has a porch, queen bed, and chairs, but there’s a nearby bathroom and a covered camp house for cooking/grilling.
If you’re planning a family trip to Portland, this cozy garden yurt is the perfect spot for a vacation! Inside the 24-foot round home sits a queen bed, a standard bed, and a trundle single bed.
Outside the yurt you’ll find a treefort and a trampoline for the kids, and a fire pit for toasting marshmallows under the stars! There’s also a full kitchen in the yurt, so you can cook family meals and save on eating out.
Finally, there’s access to a bathroom and washer/dryer in the utility room of the main house. Book your stay on Airbnb.
Round/octagonal buildings always inspire me, and this Mountain Octagon in Virginia is no exception! The vacation home has two large decks overlooking the mountains and tons of windows all the way around to give you views from the indoors as well.
One side of the octagon has a large open floor plan with the living, dining and kitchen that includes everything plus a dishwasher! There’s a bedroom, two bathrooms, and barbecue area outdoors.
I don’t know what it is about round homes, but I adore them! This particular octagonal structure was inspired by a triad of home designs: the Mongolian yurt, Navajo hogons and Native American hidatsa lodges. The result is a perfect vacation spot in Colorado dubbed the “Solargon.”
The interior has a studio-style setup, complete with a leather sofa, comfortable queen bed, and functional kitchenette. Then there’s a separate bathroom complete with a shower stall with “barnwood” tile.
But you really can’t beat the location — tucked in a corner of 40 private acres which abuts BLM land on two sides with mountain views. Book your stay here.
Yurts bring all the joy of tiny living, and make it round! This vacation yurt in Australia checks all the boxes for a fun holiday, with a stargazing dome, comfortable queen bed, and lovely windows with bush views.
The yurt itself has a large deck complete with a kitchenette and outdoor shower, and there’s a composting toilet in the nearby outhouse. Also on the private property is a shared yoga studio with a sauna and a pool. Luxurious!
You can book your stay in this tiny spot over at Airbnb.
Today I’m really excited to share this enchanting wooden yurt with all of you, mostly because my husband and I actually stayed here last summer and can vouch for how awesome it is. I’m pretty obsessed with yurts, so getting to vacation in one was a dream come true, and this one was particularly amazing because of the history — it was built by Bill Coperthwaite in 1974, the pioneer of American yurt-building!
It’s nestled in the woods/pasture of the South of Monadnock intentional living community, and looks like something out of a storybook. The walls are all tilted out, so you walk through a funky door into the main room. My favorite part of the yurt by far is the cozy book-nook. It was the perfect spot to sit down with my morning coffee before getting ready for the day’s adventure.
You access the bedroom via ladder stairs, and it has a huge skylight for star-gazing! It was incredibly romantic and peaceful. Best of all, the hosts were incredibly kind, and supplied us with local maple syrup and farm-fresh eggs upon arrival. Can’t recommend this place enough! Book your stay on Airbnb here.
