The Magical Yurts

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 Used by nomadic peoples, it was originally made of felt and furs. We have three incredible Yurts at Cabot Shores. All of them are raised on decks and have fantastic views of St. Ann’s Bay. We offer two original, hand-crafted designs, and one westernized version.

  • Windows looking out on the lake, Atlantic Ocean & Bird Islands
  • Equipped with a skylight
  • An interior that has beds and conveniences (minus electricity and plumbing)
  • Showers and washrooms are located nearby in Whiff’s Lodge

Guests of the Yurts have access to all of Cabot Shores amenities including sporting goods, restaurant and entertainment. Please note: The Yurt does not have electricity (that’s part of its charm).

Hi there,
Is there any water or bathroom link it to the yurt?

Thanks

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.

Paul February 19, 2014 at 1:30 pm

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.

Wonderful we have two golden retrievers is that also possible

Paul February 19, 2014 at 3:08 pm

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.

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.
