Beautiful Off-the-Grid Yurt with Heating in Monticello, Southeast Utah
Description of Glamping Units
This beautiful, off-the-grid yurt is located in Monticello in southeast Utah, has plenty of heating to keep glampers warm in winter, and can accommodate up to six guests. There is a queen-size bed, a large single-size couch, a full-size futon, and a single pull-out bed.
The yurt is fully insulated from floor to ceiling, so a quick switch to the small propane heater or a couple logs in the wood burn stove, will take the nip off the coldest of days. A ceiling fan will also help circulate the warm air flow and keep your toes warm at night, and the three windows and liftable dome can help circulate cool air for the warmer months.
The site lights up the night quickly with the almighty power of the sun. It's equipped with a small solar system power for basic appliances, including lamps, so guests can snuggle up on the couch and read about the next day's adventure. The kitchen area has a sink plumbed to the outside for washing dishes inside of the yurt—though there is no running water. There is also a double burner stove, as well as all necessary cookware and tableware.
There is an enclosed pit toilet (blue outhouse) that is located 100 feet from the yurt, and there is also a green "shower house" that is 20 feet away. The shower house is fully insulated and tiled and has a place to wash and take a shower. For the showers, guests will need to heat water and use the shower bucket.
Sheets, blankets, propane, and a 55-gallon drum of water is provided during spring, summer, and fall, and two five-gallon jugs of water are provided for guests to fill up in town during winter. Guests are asked to bring extra water if they think they'll need more. In addition, guests can fill up with water in the town of Monticello at the Discover Center, which is just 15 minutes from the yurt.
Wood is also provided during the winter months, from November to February, but during spring through fall, guests will be responsible for bringing their own wood. Guests must also chop their own kindling and bring newspaper for starting fires in the wood-burning stove. Read More

The yurt can comfortably accommodate six people. This is a partial self-service accommodation, meaning that some work or extra preparation is required on the guests' part, both pre- and post-trip.
Inside the yurt, guests will find a wood-burning stove and a propane heater to keep warm.
The yurt is only a short walk away from a country dirt road and sits at 7,500 feet, so during the winter, an all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicle is recommended to avoid getting stuck in the mud and/or snow. The host also recommends that guests have roadside assistance in case they get stuck and need to be towed. High clearance is not necessary, and the roads are plowed after any snow in the winter.

- Shared kitchen
This property is pet-friendly, and dogs are welcome for a non-refundable fee of $25. Guests must confirm that the dog is tick/flea-treated and friendly.
For single-night stays, there is an additional fee of $20. There is a two-night minimum stay on weekends. Guests will be sent a "yurt newsletter" upon booking the yurt that will include important information about their stay.
Guests are responsible for cleaning and putting away dishes, removing dirty linens, sweeping up, removing garbage, and leaving the yurt in good condition for the next guests. If the yurt is not left clean or garbage is left behind, there will be a $25 fee issued.
The yurt is cleaned weekly by a local service, and linens are collected weekly, so guests will need to put the new, clean linens on the bed when they arrive and the dirty linens in the basket upon leaving. Read More
