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 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.
