What’s a Yurt?
The Yurt or Ger is a kind of Mongolian-styled structure, comparable to a First Nations Tipi. Used by nomadic peoples, it was originally made of felt and furs. Now, after being westernized by folks from Oregon and British Columbia, it is transformed to be:
- Complete with windows looking out on the lake, Atlantic Ocean & Bird Islands
- 16.5 feet in diameter
- Equipped with a skylight
- An interior that has beds and conveniences (minus electricity and plumbing, but you’re near the Lodge)
You can get to the Yurt either by foot or by car, across the bridge from the lodge or through the orchard. Some of Cabot Shores’ most captivating guests stay in our yurt–families, rock climbers, celebrators of an anniversary or other special occasion, romantic couples, head of a big non-profit society, lawyers, professors, guests with pets, carpenters, artists, coaches and many more…!
