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.

Dan’s very first project on his property was his “Mancave.” He never dreamed that someone would want to stay in it, but when a friend recommended he put it on Airbnb, it became a popular destination.

That’s when Dan started getting creative: He built a mini-village inside an airplane hangar, and then constructed a yurt, and then went on to build the TREEHOUSE yurt, which includes an elevator, hot tub and resident Alpacas for you to meet and greet.

He’s currently constructing Woodstock, where you can stay in a vintage VW bus and play music on his stage. You have to watch the interview with Tiny House Giant Journey to “meet” the wonderful Dan and his vacation world.

This itty bitty yurt is just one room with space for a twin-sized sleeping pad, couple of chairs and a wood-burning stove. Not much to look at, which reminded me a lot of Thoreau’s little cabin in the woods.

This yurt is in Flagstaff, Arizona on a campground: There’s a Main Lodge nearby with toilet and shower facilities, and you’ll have a exterior picnic table and grill to make food. Thinking camping, but they provide the tent (yurt) — with a bonus wood-burning stove!

Book your stay in this baby yurt over at Glamping Hub.

Confessions: I think yurts are the coolest alternative dwelling option, and this yurt on stilts in Montana may be one of the most fantastic yurts I’ve seen!

While the yurt itself is lovely inside and out, it’s the giant wrap-around, two-level porch with a grill and fire pit that really make this place special.

Inside there are two bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom, and a full kitchen with everything you need to do some cooking during your stay. You can book your trip to this magical getaway via Airbnb.

This is Dan and Deborah’s incredible yurt treehouse in Geneva, Florida which is northeast of Orlando on their five-acre property called Danville.

The yurt treehouse is located between two giant oak trees and it sits 15-ft high! Magnificent, isn’t it?

This is the Yurt Treetop Escape in Australia where you can vacation via Airbnb!

Although you’ve probably seen many yurts with canvas exteriors, this one is timber-framed (my personal favorite). It has 12 sides and you’ll find a comfy bed, full bathroom and a kitchenette inside. It sits in rainforest paradise and the handmade picnic table outside is a perfect place to enjoy a meal. Get more details below.

Could you live in a yurt? Enjoy the pictures!

Marcin and Anissa are an inspiring couple who are designing beautiful, natural, and minimalist yurts for Yurta in Ontario, Canada.

They started their career designing lamps and emergency relief tents but transitioned to designing modern yurts when a man from the local Gatineau Park asked them to try their hand at building a lightweight and portable yurt.

They use natural materials including 100% wool felt, ash and cedar wood, and polyester cotton fabric. Their yurts fit into a 4×8″ trailer making them incredibly easy to move from place to place.

This is the Minimalist Echo Yurt by Echo Living. The amazing building sits at the Loch Ken Eco Bothies in Scotland, and you can rent the yurt for 3, 4 or 7 nights.

I absolutely love the living “green” roof and the stellar location. The home features a very modern and minimalist interior that includes a wood stove, kitchen, bathroom, and double bed.
