The Magical Yurts

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 Used by nomadic peoples for thousands of years, the yurt was originally made of felt and furs.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 six Yurts at Cabot Shores: 5 Mongolian Yurts and 1 Cedar yurt. All yurts have their own decks, fantastic views of our lake, the Atlantic ocean and Bird Islands, and nearby fire pits to gather around. Our five Mongolian yurts are available 4 seasons and are hand painted by families in Mongolia, featuring unique handmade furniture and decor, skylights, and are insulated with felt, canvas and bound by horsehair ropes.

Our Cedar style yurt is available 4 seasons. This spacious yurt smells of fresh cedar boards with a small wood stove, double and twin bed, small table and a Japanese cedar soaking tub directly outside the door! Wood and kindling available inside your yurt and during winter, 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 Cedar Yurt – 3-4 people

The Big Red and Orange Yurts – 3-4 people

The Blue Yurt – 2 people

The Orange Yurt – 2 people

The Red Yurt – 2 people

    Thanks for your question about the Yurts.

    Currently there is no water inside the Yurts. You can use one of three washrooms in the lodge, one with a shower in it. There is also a “campers” deck
    alongside “Dolly’s” house, the first door with a toilet and sink and the second with a shower and sink.

  5. says

    Yes, three Yurts have heat in them–the Cedar and Red Yurts have wood stoves; the Blue Yurt has an electric heater. So far, there is availability from March 10-14th. Let’s follow up with email to provide more details.

    The two golden retrievers will work fine (as long as they don’t endanger our chickens!) and please let us know how many humans (adults and children?) will be in the Yurt so that we can make a recommendation on what will work best for your group.

    Could you update your website and show pictures of the “orange yurt” and describe please?

    The Orange (doored) Yurt is the third Mongolian Yurt at Cabot Shores. It is 12feet inches in diameter, has a double bed and bedside table and a mosaic table. It has a deck and screen door
    from which you see a fantastic view of the Bird Islands, the Atlantic, our 2007 foot beach, with
    the Church Pond on the other side.

    There is no electricity in the Yurt and currently guests use the bathrooms and shower in the lodge. In the next week, a Yurt bathhouse will be completed near the 3 Yurts, with one room a shower and the other toilet and sink.

    Pictures are being taken of the Orange Yurt besides that of the first guest, David Keenan, of Amherst, Massachusetts, sitting with frequent guest and archeologist Steven Davis.

    Hey there!

    Just curious, which yurt has the best view (in your opinion) and also, which yurt is closest to a lake / ocean?

    Can’t wait to spend a night in one of these beauties!
