Alaska-tough made yurt: the Alaska version of a traditional Mongolian nomadic home.
Yurt life is much more connected to nature than conventional accommodation; connect to your surroundings; the sky, trees and song birds thru the skydome.
If you need fancy accommodation, need to be catered to, if you do not enjoy the woods, do not stay here. If you want to experience rural Alaskan lifestyle, are independent, enjoy being immersed in nature, enjoy peace and quiet, you will love it here:)

The yurt is super dope and really an awesome experience if you’ve never tried staying in a place like this. It was very comfortable and came with all the amenities while providing the back country experience. It’s also close to Talkeetna downtown and most places that you would…
