On the slopes of Pleasant Mountain in Maine guests can find these private yurt rentals nestled beneath the trees. These accommodations provide all the necessities for a luxurious weekend retreat. Within the yurts guests will find that they are furnished with kitchen amenities, a two-burner propane stove, a wood stove, a French press and tea pot, an ice chest for food storage, fire wood for indoor fires, and olive oil lamps and lanterns.
See the information below on the difference between the two yurts available here.
Sunset Yurt: This unit sleeps up to three glampers in a queen-size pull out futon couch bed and a pull out single bed. There is a composting toilet is a short walk away (downhill about 50 yards), an outdoor fire circle, a picnic table, and a hammock.
Mountain Brook Yurt: This yurt sleeps up to four guests in one pull out queen futon, one single bed, and one single folding cot.
Please note there is no running water at the yurts. This property has a warm shower for guests created from a hybrid system with solar, wood and propane on demand for limited, mindful usage.

This alone creates an impeccably tranquil and authentic green retreat. Nestled in the pristine forestland, guests will be surrounded by the sounds of a nearby spring-fed mountain brook, offering dipping pools and hiking trails along its edge. It is truly a magical sampling of Maine's mountains and lakes region habitat.
