The Cedar Yurt: 3-4 people
Our Cedar style yurt is also available 4 seasons. This spacious yurt smells of fresh cedar boards with a small wood stove, double and twin bunk beds, small table and a Japanese cedar soaking tub directly outside the door (it is optional and there is a fee of $50 for the evening) ! Wood and kindling available inside your yurt and during winter, if you wish we will start the fire before you arrive. Showers and washrooms are located a short distance away from yurts with shower, toilet and sink available.
The Yurt or Ger is a kind of Mongolian-styled structure, comparable to a First Nations Tipi. Used by nomadic peoples for thousands of years, the yurt was originally made of felt and furs.
We have seven Mongolian style yurts at Cabot Shores: two large yurts accommodating up to four guests and three smaller yurts perfect for couples or close friends. All yurts have their own decks, fantastic views of our lake, the Atlantic ocean and Bird Islands, and nearby fire pits. Each of our Mongolian yurts are hand built and ornately painted by families in Mongolia; featuring unique, handmade furniture and skylights, each yurt is insulated with felt, canvas and bound by horsehair ropes. Showers and washrooms are located a short distance away from yurts with shower, toilet and sink available.
