Book a Glamping Getaway at One of These Colorado Yurts
Yurts offer a unique balance between being immersed in nature, while also having the luxury of certain, modern conveniences. If you're wanting to experience a glamping getaway in Colorado, here are four incredible yurts to book.
This large yurt is the perfect place to stay for those seeking privacy, and and more of an "off-grid" experience. Just minutes away from a national forest, the yurt at Screwball Ranch sits on 80 acres of secluded land, with plenty of hiking and biking trails nearby.
It comfortably sleeps 4-6 guests, with two twin beds in the loft and two full sized futons in the living area. The yurt also includes a well-equipped kitchen, open living area, large deck and adequate storage space. There's even a flushable toilet and working shower inside — as far as yurts go, that's pretty classy!
The Unaweep Yurt in gorgeous Gateway, Colorado is fully-equipped with all of the amenities from home, including an oven with stovetop, full size fridge/freezer, fireplace, microwave and hot, running water in the bathroom. The outdoor patio and lawn make for amazing areas to relax and unwind after a day of adventuring.
The 760 sq. ft. yurt features a queen bed, single bed, and one sofa bed, with a very spacious layout throughout. There's even WiFi available on site for guests who can't completely unplug.
Nestled in the San Juan mountains, this stunning yurt located near Creede, offers a true wilderness experience, without travelers totally having to "rough it." Surrounded by breathtaking views, this remote yurt is the ultimate escape from reality. Be prepared to disconnect, because there's no power, no running water, no internet, and no cell service available.
Inside, there's a queen bed, and camping bunk beds that can be pulled out into cots, but guests also need to bring a decent sleeping bag, no matter what time of year it is. The cozy, cast iron woodstove keeps campers toasty, and there's also an outdoor, propane-fueled fire pit for cooking and gathering around.
Located on the same property as the Platte River Fort in Greeley, the Lotus Belle Yurts are charming, hidden gems that each offer an unforgettable getaway. There are six different themed yurts on site (and a covered wagon too). Each yurt is uniquely decorated, beautiful, and spacious on the inside, with deck space, comfy chairs and individual fire pits on the outside.
Another cool thing about staying at these yurts, is that they're situated right on the bank of the South Platte River. Not only is the water a pretty perk of the property, but the hosts also provide tubes and guests can float down the lazy river as many times as they want. From first-hand experience, this peaceful place is truly amazing!
