The space
The "Hemlock Yurt" is a 20ft diameter (roughly 315sq ft) Colorado Yurt Co. yurt built on a solid insulated platform. It is located on the border of Jay Cooke state back, nestled in the trees overlooking a farm field. The Yurt is located a short walk (approximately 300 yards) from where you will be parking your car. A small cart is provided to bring your bags back to the yurt. If you are coming and going after dark, we recommend bringing a flashlight.

Please Note: This yurt has a propane stove that is used for heat only in the shoulder season months of May and October. It is disconnected and shut off June-Sept, as heat is not needed during these months.

About the Property: The property is a mix of fields & forest. It borders Jay Cooke State Park and neighboring farm fields.

Our yurts provide a hybrid experience between camping and staying in a cabin, or ‘glamping’. Combining the best of both, your surrounded by nature and wildlife, sheltered by the canvas ‘yurt’ and sleeping in a comfortable bed ( bedding provided). A solar power battery provides power for ambient lighting, a place to charge phones and plug in provided fan. Potable water and a small washing station is provided just outside the yurt for hand washing/brushing teeth.

BATHROOM(PORTA-POTTY): The yurt doesn’t have a bathroom. There is a port-potty, approximately ~100 yards from yurt. This is shared with one other yurt on property. Behind each yurt we provide a jug of potable water for light washing and teeth brushing.

We do not allow camp cook stoves, due to fire dangers.
