A Vermont yurt works wonders for those looking for a weekend getaway
The yurt offered at this glamping site is 20 feet in diameter and very insulated. It’s spacious and cozy for two people, and it’s the perfect place to escape from the rest of the world for short-term or long-term stays. Inside the yurt, glampers will sleep on a handmade, wooden loft bed. The room downstairs has more mattresses for larger groups. The yurt has a kitchen area, a sitting area, a wood stove, and a composting outhouse. Other things to expect within the yurt include a headlamp, first-aid supplies, maps/guidebooks, a full-sized loft bed area, a single futon couch that can convert into a bed, two coffee tables, a propane lantern, a propane stove, pots, pans, a griddle, a cutting board, cooking and eating utensils, cleaning supplies, a broom, a dust pan, a wash bowl, soap, towels, garbage bags, and toilet paper. In the winter, the site will provide guests with a hauling sled to get snow or water from the nearby stream. Glampers can also get drinking water at the nearby house. There is a cooler available to keep food outside, and guests will also have dry firewood.
Some things glampers might want to think about bringing include appropriate clothes for the weather, sleeping bags and slippers, a blow-up mattress or airbed for additional accommodation, and food.
This rustic yurt in Vermont is located on the host's property. In fact, she can see the yurt right from her very own house, and she calls this little set-up yurt camping in style. While glamping here, guests can use the bathroom in the host's house, or use the outhouse up near the main house. The yurt has solar electric lights that illuminate the entire space. There is internet with the flick of a switch. Guests must turn it off when they depart.
There is a propane refrigerator/freezer, and there are bottles of ice at the main house if the fridge has not been on. There is also a propane stove for cooking, propane hot water for washing in the sink, and a shower if guests want to carry water from the creek. For extra drinking water, guests can go to the main house kitchen to fill the containers and bring it down to the yurt. In the winter, the hosts provide a hauling sled to obtain snow or water from the nearby stream.
Guests should bring their own sleeping bags and bedding. If they choose to use the bedding and sheets the host has, they can use the bedding and towels on the shelves, and then must return them to the host when they depart.

This site offers a ton of activities, and there is even a special set of workshops for children. In addition to that, there are kayak excursions, winter cross-country ski and snowshoe trips, and outdoor explorations. The site's host can outfit glampers with kayaks, instruction, and guiding, if guests would like, as well as gear for cross country skiing.
The hosts have kayaks for rent, instruction, and guided trips. Glampers can even simply wander around the open meadows and escape right into the woods to disconnect for a while. This glamping site is perfect for those who love the outdoors and need to reconnect with nature. The owner has lists of local hikes, just ask by email ahead of time, or visit the main house kitchen wall for a hard copy.
