Beautifully hand-crafted, owner built, furnished Yurt with all the comforts you need. Accessible by car (with 4WD recommended in winter).

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.

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.

A special place in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

This such an amazing property. We stayed as a family of five with young children. Everything was ready when we arrived and we had a great stay - everything is there for an outdoor adventure while enjoying a comfortable bed, kitchen and other facilities. The yurt is fantastic, the kids enjoyed the trampoline, the surroundings are beautiful, the bed is great. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and the breakfast is a wonderful start to the day. We can highly recommend this property!

Had a great stay in the Caribou Yurt

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our time in the Caribou Yurt. It was a great experience. The bed was comfortable, the place was clean and our children enjoyed the outdoor activities. It has been put on our list of places to come back to! We were welcomed in the morning with a superb breakfast. We have recommended the place to several of our friends and family and will definitely be coming back.

Very relaxing and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time spending a Saturday at the yurt. We arrived in the afternoon and hiked to the top of a mountain directly from the yurt on one of the trails nearby. We spent the rest of the day playing games, making a fire, and watching DVD's. It rained during the night and it was so nice listening to the pitter-patter of rain on the yurt. The breakfast the next morning was so delicious! We will definitely be back for more yurt adventures!

We had such a fun time at the caribou yurt. The snow was amazing. The yurt was warm and cozy after a long day in the snow. My kids didn't want to leave and neither did I. We will definitely be comming back to experience the summer at the yurt. The breakfast was delicious! Thank you Cami and Lance for helping make my sons birthday an amazingly fun and memorable 10th birthday!!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how great it was to spend a couple nights here! The yurt alone was was amazing, unique and fun. Beautiful setting for a romantic weekend, family fun or just a quiet getaway.

Lance and Cami are wonderful hosts and breakfast is top notch.

We definitely plan on staying here again.
