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 Used by nomadic peoples, it was originally made of felt and furs.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 five incredible Yurts at Cabot Shores. All of them are raised on decks and have fantastic views of St. Ann’s Bay. We offer three Mongolian yurts, a cedar yurt, the original western yurt made in Newfoundland–which we call the wilderness yurt
- Windows looking out on the lake, Atlantic Ocean & Bird Islands
- Equipped with a skylight (except wilderness yurt)
- An interior that has beds and conveniences (minus electricity and plumbing)
- Showers and washrooms are located nearby in Whiff’s Lodge and a bathhouse with shower, toilet and sink.
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).
