About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This is a fully functional, fully equipped yurt located in the magnificent Unaweeep Canyon. It offers all the amenities of home while still allowing a strong connection with the outdoors. The origin of the "yurt" or "ger" can be traced back to nomadic tribes of Mongolia. While the modern yurt offers a few extra creature comforts, the essence of living in a round structure has remained the same!!!!

Car: Recommended

In a sense the yurt is isolated and that's a huge part of its appeal. But because hwy 141 is nearby guests are not cut-off from the world. Rather the Unaweep Canyon drive offers spectacular views and provides good access to a whole range of destinations and activities.

While the destination is remote it is also easy to find so long as you pay attention. From Grand Junction you will travel southeast along Hwy 50 until you reach Whitewater. From there turn right onto Hwy 141 (there is a sign and a billboard at the turn off) heading southwest for approx. 20 miles. The yurt is located on the north-side (right side) of the hwy. It is between mile marker 132 & 133. There is a mailbox and a gate at the end of the driveway. The yurt is at the top of the drive. Please follow the road as it veers to the right and park behind the yurt.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Colorado is home and it's where I want to be! I grew up in the mountains and canyons of this great state. I don't plan to leave anytime soon. I respect all people and all points of view (mostly!). I thrive on fresh air, the outdoors and l love a good sweat. Traveling is a passion, at home or abroad. I have trekked through the Rockies, Andes and in between. I have gotten lost more than once. I like beaches, tides and gritty little towns. For me it's all about people and the places they live. How they survive and how they enjoy!

Why the Owner Chose Whitewater, CO, USA:
If you've never experienced staying in a yurt, now is your chance. Staying in a yurt means staying connected with the outdoor environment. The breeze, the smell, the sounds and of course the VIEWS!! This is truly a unique experience. Come experience it for yourself!
