Property type cabin


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Shower will be back in by May 1. YAY!!!! Our yurt is the finest in NH. It is handicap accessible yet out in the wilderness. It sleeps 5. We have a bunk bed, a full size futon and a spare mattress. Come stay at NH's most relaxing yurt and visit amenities such as Alton Bay, Wolfeboro NH, Gunstock Ski Area. Kayaking/Kayak rentals are just minutes away by car. Come enjoy the beautiful yurt setting and relax, recoup and repeat! You'll be glad you did... Awesome fire pit with unlimited wood for an extra $10 per night and a charging station if you feel the need for $10 per night payable upon arrival.. We know that people enjoy a cocktail every now and then. We have had some unfortunate times with guests who apparently overdid and ask that you respect the hard work that we have put into our Yurt property and if drinking, drink responsibly (: Thank you...

Pets upon approval!

Lakes Region Yurts, BEST hot/cold outdoor shower... Near Lake Winnipesaukee

Cozy and private

  • 5 of 5

For those of you expecting a tent in the owner's backyard, think again. This lovely, clean and well maintained yurt is down a windy dirt road a mile or so from Wendy and Ron's house. You have a wonderful amount of privacy. The amenities offered here must be seen to be believed. The shower hookup is as simple as it is ingenious. A hot water shower outside? Something to cross off your bucket list for sure. The outhouse style bathroom is cleaner than you would expect for being in the middle of the woods. You can tell a lot of care and thought went into this rental. The inside of the yurt itself is cozy and clean as could be. The kitchen is well stocked with spices, utensils, pots and plates. There was even coffee! Blankets and pillows adorn the bunk beds and the fold out couch. Games, magazines, crayons and coloring books are there to stave off any hint of cabin fever. If you forget to bring your flashlight, have no fear! Lanterns, twinkle lights and candles are never far out of reach. We were lulled to sleep by a symphony of peepers which was as pleasant as it was tranquil. Wendy and Ron are wonderful hosts who clearly went above and beyond to make their yurt a one of a kind experience. This rental was a birthday gift for my husband, and we will certainly remember it fondly for years to come.

We really enjoyed it. Great fire pit. Wendy was very nice. The yert was also very nice. Simple, clean, comfortable. Hearing all the birds and animals while we slept was really cool. Highly recommended!

Serenity in a yurt!

  • 5 of 5

What in amazing adventure. The yurt was far enough away from everything so the only sounds you heard were peepers, birds, the wind, and wildlife. Yet it was a close enough drive to reach civilization and Alton Bay without any issue. I have to say our first moments were wonderful. We pulled in to check in and met Ronn and their animals. Our dogs have never seen miniature horses before so it was quite a sight. Ronn was so unbelievably kind. He saw our car and thought that maybe it wasn't appropriate to bring it down back to the yurt because of the spring conditions of the road. He offered to let us take his truck back-and-forth and keep our vehicle at their house. I can't believe how unbelievably kind this gentleman was.

The yurt was stocked with everything you could possibly need and more. We played games, had a campfire all while our dogs ran for hours and explored the area. We brought food with us and cooked lovely meals:pasta w/scallops fresh basil and garlic, it was heavenly.

The campfire was so relaxing. We sat there for hours and just relaxed and to unwind from the crazy work week.

Wendy was immediately responsive to all of our emails, so kind when we met her and was a super host. We cannot wait to return when the shower is up and running for the year. It was a surprise trip for my husband and has always been on our bucket list. It more than met our expectations. I think honestly my dogs were disappointed when we got back home, LOL. They wanted the yurt and the woods! So do we!

Yurt Tucked Away in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Property was excellent and well maintained. It was exactly what we were looking for in getting out of Boston for a relaxing night in the woods. Looking forward to getting back up for a trip in the summer to enjoy the fire pit, grill, and outside sitting area!
