Description of Glamping Units
This vacation rental in Mid-Coast Maine is a unique yurt accommodation that can accommodate two guests—perfect for a New England couple's getaway! It’s 600 square feet, and there is a bedroom area with a queen-size bed, a sitting area with ample light, a basic kitchen (featuring a refrigerator and electric stove), a dining area, and a full bathroom. The beautiful beams and ceilings rise above the areas, and there’s a large round skylight that lets light in even on the darkest days.
The yurt is heated by a few monitor direct-vent heaters and passive solar. There are also privacy screens that guests can easily roll down, although it might not be necessary, because the yurt is quite secluded. Open the windows for some fresh air, and don’t worry about bugs—there are screens in place already. Outside the yurt, there is a deck for sunbathing, reading, or simply taking it all in.
