About this listing
Sit in front of the outdoor fire pit with the morning coffee and enjoy the landscape and lakes of Western Maine or rest those legs and eat dinner at the table with a cold one while watching the sunset over Mount Washington and the Presidential Range.
The North Ridge Yurt is a truly unique wilderness experience.
Soak in the year-round views, hike or snowshoe the Pleasant Mountain trail network from the back door, pick blueberries, ski or snowboard Shawnee Peak or just sit back and watch for the many species of wildlife that frequent the mountain. The North Ridge Yurt is a unique four-season experience sitting trail-side on Sunset Blvd.
Our yurt sleeps 4 in two bunk beds . Basic kitchen amenities are provided, including dishes and utensils, a propane grill, a 2-burner camp stove and washing water.
The yurt is naturally lit during the day and battery powered lamps are provided for the evening hours. A propane fireplace will keep you warm during the cooler evenings. Raised fire pits and firewood are ready to use as well as a natural outhouse.
We recommend that our guests access the property via their own means - hike-in during the spring, summer and fall months and ski-in during the winter! It's about an hour hike from the parking lot or you can take the chairlift up in the winter.
Extra guests are $10 per head and must bring their own sleeping mattress.
