About the Property

Amazing mountain views in beautifully hand made, fully furnished, plush YURT!

Only few short miles from town, yet have 360 deg mountain views! Gorgeous sunsets, tranquil surroundings, and star gazing by the fire pit awaits you! Beautifully hand-crafted, owner built, furnished Yurt with all the comforts you need. Accessible by car (with 4WD recommended in winter). Bring your gear (skis, swimsuit, hiking boots, snowshoes, sleds, mountain bikes, road bike, climbing gear) for the season! Lava Hot Springs only 45 min drive. Pebble Creek Ski area 30 min drive. City of Rocks (world renown climbing) only 90 min away. Awesome stop on your way to Yellowstone or Teton National Parks. All this and not to mention all the great fun to do right in Pocatello! Yurt sits on old ski area that borders BLM land. Miles of trails await for you to explore right from the Yurt. You will stay cozy warm with the wood burning stove, down comforter and comfortable queen bed. In summer, stay cool with the mountain breeze through the many windows. There is a sofa sleeper, extra bedding and pads for more guests. The home-made, from scratch breakfast is 5 star! You won't go away hungry! Food is fresh (yup- we have chickens) and delivered to the yurt. Special diets/restrictions are available. Inside you will find a big screen TV with DVDs, games, microwave and snacks, large table, padded carpet and even tile entry way! In summer, a trampoline is set up just outside, right beside the picnic table.Very clean, cute composting Outhouse just steps from the Yurt (No running water but lots of fresh, well water provided). Bonus: clear 5' diameter dome to star gaze from inside the yurt! Linens, hot dog roasting sticks, wood, and some camp chairs provided. 4 legged family members welcome but need to stay outside. Smoking not allowed in or around Yurt. Cant wait to share a little bit of fun and adventure with you!
