The yurt will time warp you back 50 years, chopping wood, heating up water, and breathing in the fresh high desert air of southeast Utah. It's time to decompress, slow the hectic pace of modern times, and enjoy the great outdoors!
The yurt is 24 ft in diameter (approx 450 sq feet), and comfortably accommodates 6 people. It's located 40 miles south of Moab and 15 minutes north of Monticello Utah. It is in the heart of outdoor adventure land. From rock climbing to hiking, mountain biking, finding ancient ruins, to just relaxing and disconnecting from the stresses of everyday life for a while, the YURT is a true escape from a normal vacation. The Yurt is a partial self-service accommodation, meaning that some work or extra preparation is required on your part, pre and post trip, so PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. There is a wood burning stove and propane heater for heat. For sleeping there is a queen sized bed, a large single size couch, a full size futon, and 1 single pull-out bed. The kitchen area has a sink plumbed to the outside for washing dishes inside the yurt (but no running water), and double burner stove, along with all cooking supplies, pots pans plates, utensils etc for cooking and eating. Sheets, blankets, propane, and a 55 gallon drum of water is provided during Spring/Summer/Fall and 2 5-gallons jugs of water for you to fill up in town during winter season. Please bring your own extra water if you feel you'll need more. If you require additional water you can fill up in the town of Monticello at the Discovery Center 15 minutes from the yurt. Wood is provided during Winter Months (Nov-Feb), but during Spring-Fall you will be responsible for bringing your own wood. You are also responsible for chopping your own kindling and bringing newspaper for starting fires in the stove. There is an enclosed pit toilet (blue outhouse) 100 feet from the yurt and also a green "shower house" 20 feet away, that is fully insulated, tiled, and has a place to wash and take a shower. For showers you need to heat water and use the shower bucket, but it is really nice after a hard day of playing in the outdoors. Although the yurt is only a short walk from a county dirt road, it sits at 7500 feet, so during the winter an all wheel drive vehicle is recommended, to keep from getting stuck in mud/snow. I recommend you have road side assistance in case you get stuck and need to be towed. You do not need high clearance, and the roads are plowed after any snow in the winter. For single night stays there will be an additional $20 fee. I will send this to you via a "special offer" after your inquiry. If you have a dog(s) there is a non-refundable $25 pet fee, that will be sent via a special offer and you must confirm that your dog is tick/flea treated and friendly. You are responsible for cleaning and putting away dishes, removing your dirty linens, sweeping up, removing your own GARBAGE and leaving the yurt in good condition for the next guests. If yurt is not left clean, or garbage is left behind a $25 fee will be issued. The yurt is cleaned weekly by a local service, and linens are collected weekly, so you will need to put new, clean linens on the bed(s) when you arrive and put the dirty linens in the basket upon leaving. You will also be sent a Yurt Newsletter upon booking the Yurt that will include important information about your stay. Thanks and enjoy your Yurtcation!!!!
