About the Property

Studio, 0.5 Baths (Sleeps 5)

Escape to this secluded, solar-powered yurt situated on private land along the eastern border of Mesa Verde National Park. Plan a romantic getaway for two or bring the family for a unique, Colorado "glamping" experience. Enjoy stunning scenery and a peaceful environment while surrounded by acres of untouched natural beauty. Visitors can sunbathe on the patio, hike around the 35-acre property, or enjoy the warmth of an indoor or outdoor fire. Cook dinner on the portable gas cook stove or outdoor gas grill. There's an outdoor potty with gorgeous views.

The yurt is a great home base for your Four Corners adventures. The main entrance to Mesa Verde is just two miles by car. Visit the charming town of Mancos (seven miles east), where you can eat at a variety of restaurants, stock up on groceries, take a yoga class, and visit art galleries. To the west, the city of Cortez provides a rec center, pool, additional shopping, and other activities for the whole family.

Owner info

About the owner: My wife and I LOVE to camp. At least, we did. Before we had kids. Before our bones started to ache from sleeping on the ground on our meager inflatable pads. We didn't used to mind waking up at dawn to chirping birds, scampering squirrels, and two inches of frozen sleet weighing down our sagging tent. Most mornings we would ignore our frozen noses, puffy eyes, and damp feet due to the puddle that formed on the tent floor during the stormy night. The beautiful views, the fresh air, and the crackling warmth of a camp fire made up for that. But then, our baby came along. And camping with babies is hard. So, we decided that the yurt I had so lovingly erected before we got married, the yurt that I had intended to live in during my Thoreau-inspired bachelor days, would be a suitable compromise. It would bring us (and our babies) closer to nature. We could still enjoy spectacular solitude, a crackling campfire, and the night sky replete with millions of stars. Yet, in the comfort of the yurt, we could sleep on a real mattress, have running water whenever we wanted, and turn on lights when it got dark. With our busy lives now, however, we are unable to escape to the yurt as often as we would like. And, we didn't want our Mongolian ger nestled in this little patch of heaven to get lonely. So, we invite you, our next guest, to come experience the beautiful, natural environment of Southwest Colorado -- the place where the Ancestral Puebloans called home a thousand years ago. And, we want to share it with those who, like ourselves, like to be close to nature but also like to have many of the comforts of home.
