Travel fantasy: Yurts

My twin sister and her husband took a weekend getaway to Big Sur and stayed in a yurt! They said it was one of their coolest vacations. How invigorating to spend the day hiking and swimming, and in the evening, you can drink wine on your deck, breathe the salty air, and watch the sunset. Yurts also seem like a great baby step for those of us who aren't big campers: You get to be in nature and sleep in a bed. Good for wusses!

Have you ever stayed in a yurt? Would you want to? Big Sur looks incredible.

P.S. More travel fantasies, and are you the camping type?

This looks beautiful ! I had never even heard of Yurts! And only the song "big sur" by the thrills rings a bell. I wanna go there!

Clair said...

Yess!!! I remember learning about yurts in 8th grade and wanting to build one in our backyard. I would love this adventure!

Love yurts! We always stay in one at a Georgia state park we like to go to. It's right on the water- we call staying in yurts"comfort camping"!

Hope said...

I went on a yurt-ing weekend a few weeks ago with my husband and a bunch of our friends, here in Oregon. We are a group that camps a lot, but this was perfect for the winter in Oregon, where we never know if it is going to rain or not! You should definitely try it!

We stayed in a yurt at Cape Disappointment State Park in Washington and loved it. They were great and the best part is that they have an electric heater for chilly nights. A lot of state parks on the west coast have them.

Mindy said...

I think we stayed at the same spot several years ago. Was it Tree Bones? If so, it was stunningly beautiful, but sleeping in the yurt was not fun. It may have been the time of year, though I think it's always pretty windy at night in Big Sur. We said afterwards that it felt like sleeping inside of the drum on which the end of the world was being sound. It was so loud we did not sleep a wink!

Providential said...

I stayed at the Treebones Resort in Big Sur and it was amazing! Highly recommend. The views, location and FOOD are just awesome.

HiLLjO said...

That looks AWESOME! Like... tent+++++

ElsaD said...

Wow...looks amazing! I'm not crazy about campign, so this 'yurt' thing -which I never heard of, btw-sounds perfect for me! Thanks for sharing! xoxo

I stayed in a yurt in Mongolia a few years ago -- it was part of this whole Genghis Khan, riding ponies across the plains, etc. etc. Mongolian fantasy -- and I guess the traditional way of doing it is that you simply sleep on carpets on the floor? And this is horrible, and maybe we should have just sprung for a cleaner/more expensive place, but I stayed up the whole night thinking, "lice, lice, lice."

I didn't get lice. Still, yurt + bed seems like a better option.

Kirby said...

My boyfriend and I stayed here! It was the perfect combination of outdoorsy and luxury. I would definitely recommend it!

There are some BEAUTIFUL yurts up Millcreek Canyon in Salt Lake City. In the winter, you snowshoe in and then you're up in the mountains, all by yourself, with nothing but nature and your loved one(s). So fun!

The Big Sur ones look amazing!

Ladies Holiday said...

Big Sur is one of my fave places in the world. It's wild, windswept, yet beautiful and relaxing. So close to nature.

I've hung out in a yurt and love the atmosphere of it- round, open and cozy.

I never realized some operate as hotels- will have to check it out!!

Ash said...

Yurts are available on many place on the NW shores. I like to "camp" in yurts in the winter and leave tent camping for the summer.

mollly @thewaffler said...

I love the idea of "camping lite." Yurting definitely seems like a good option for my new-to-camping family.

Sweet Emilia Jane said...

That's where I got engaged! It is such a magical place!

Anni said...

So, I'm not sure my fiance would go for the whole yurt thing, but I'd love to do that for our honeymoon! How cool.

Sarah said...

I would totally sleep in a Yurt. I think you are right in saying it's a good intro to people with kids and "wusses" lol

Charlotte said...

In all honesty, this is the first time I've even heard of these magical half camping luxury houses. I'll be looking into it for my next holiday!

Abby said...

This is perfect! You're right, it's the perfect baby step towards camping for us 'stay at home' types. I must stay in one of these!

Anonymous said...

i am totally a camping wuss, but this yurt idea sounds wonderful!

Abbey said...

Big Sur really is an amazing place. It's not just beautiful, it's magical. I am the camping type and have backpacked a lot there, but have always wanted to experience the luxury of a yurt! Someday... ;)

Stace said...

My boyfriend and I went on a double-date yurting adventure with my best friend and his girlfriend last month. It was one of the best holidays I've ever been on! We went cross-country skiing, skating and hiking during the day and snuggled up in front of our wood burning stove with a glass of wine every night.

We've already booked it for reading week next year!

Cat said...

I'm getting married at Liberty View Farm (libertyviewfarm.biz)in August, and they have an amazing yurt that we're going to stay in on our wedding night! Only an hour from NYC home!
I love your blog.

{Liana} said...

Oh boy! That is my next vacation...I just know it:) How awesome?! Camping is one of my favorite summer time things to do, but this would elevate your stay and still give you the camping feel.

The slow pace said...

How cool is that????

Sara said...

So cool! I've always wanted to stay in a yurt! There's a place outside of Asheville where you can camp in a yurt, much closer to home, I may have to pull the trigger someday soon:)

tara belle said...

Ohhhh, I Think that looks lovely but no way, it is not camping! I know because I'm the camping type :)

Annie said...

This would be PERFECT for my husband and me. He loves hiking and camping, whereas I like knowing that I have a cozy bed and shower at the end of the day. Plus I've been wanting to go to California for a while.

Petya K. Grady said...

My husband took me to Treebone as a surprise. He was my boyfriend at the time and I'd never really thought much about marrying him until that trip. It was so beautiful, breath-taking really, and so incredibly romantic! Everyone should go! (P.S. It is surprisingly affordable.)

J. Beaudet said...

Big Sur is absolutely beautiful! I've only just driven through a few times but this would be a lovely place to stay! I think I need to start planning a road trip now!!

MJ said...

We stayed in the same yurt, it was beautiful, totally breathtaking. There was even a human birds nest that we climbed into BUT I couldn't sleep, the wind on the yurt kept me awake :(

Ash said...

big sur is where we were married..

and YES, it is UNBELIEVABLE incredible... you MUST take a vacation there with your family.. it will literally change your life...

i have had friends stay in yurts, and they love them... we usually just camp (:

Tournesol said...

Yes, I absolutey would, looks wonderful and what a view! I think I tee pee would be even better.

that sounds like so much fun!!!!

You have such an influential blog that impact a lot of people all over the world and I was wondering if you would please share this video on the Invisible Children campaign. It isn't to celebrate Joseph Kony, but to raise support for his arrest. I really hope you watch this and join the fight. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc

Sarah said...

I stayed at this same place on my honeymoon! It's called Treebones, and it's amazing. I highly recommend it! They had an outdoor hot tub, a bird's nest that you can hang out in with a view of the ocean and an outdoor sushi restaurant. Perfection!

Mrs. P Vega said...

We went to Big Sur a couple weekends ago and rented an incredible cliffside cabin. It was the most serene getaway from the LA madness.

brianna said...

We just considered booking a yurt here for our honeymoon actually! We discovered there aren't bathroom facilities in the yurt (duh) and there is not a ton of privacy (noise travels through the campsite), so we chose to go elsewhere for our honeymoon, but they have GREAT customer service (speak to Donna) and we definitely plan to visit in the future. Many places in Big Sur don't allow children, but this place does (over age 6) so we intend to come back with our 7 yr old. How funny that you posted this today!

Anonymous said...

This sounds like the ideal nature getaway to me! All the fun of being outside, but with some comfort as well!!! Sign me up!

Ashley said...

My husband and I recently stayed in a Yurt in Homer, Alaska (http://www.kenaipeninsulasuites.com/accomodations.html, see "Puffin"). It was a log yurt, well insulated, and a fun site to stay in for sure. The views were incredible!

Amy said...

This looks like a dream/fantasy (or something straight out of Harry Potter)!

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

i grew up in berkeley and i love big sur! my parents go to treebones regularly for what they call "working vacations" and they sit in the main dining room during the day, looking out over the ocean and working on their grants and then in the afternoon they go on long hikes and go in the hot tub. i went once for a weekend with my mom and it was heavenly--so beautiful and peaceful.

Aya said...

My dad and I traveled around Mongolia for three weeks, where they originated and are called "gers." After driving all day not seeing another soul, only camels, we would come upon a small cluster and stay the night in someone's guest ger. Or if you saw one during the day, you just pop in and have lunch. Can you imagine coming upon a stranger's house in the states and coming in for a shared lunch?! Needless to say, I am a huge yurt fan and would love to go to Big Sur.

Jessica Wray said...

camping is my favorite; last year my boyfriend and I stayed in a yurt on the Puget Sound. It was cold, but cuddle and fun.

LRC said...

This is one of my DREAMS!!!

Leslie said...

It seems like the perfect compromise!

Yurts rule! I once had dinner in an awesome yurt in Park City, UT, complete with an evening sleigh ride up the mountain! A perfect end to a day of skiing, snowshoeing or whatever snowy activity you fancy. Check it out: http://www.thevikingyurt.com/

Abby said...

I stayed in a yurt outside College Park, Maryland with my teammates once! It was a great time :)
Nothing too exotic or anything, but still fun!

Mani said...

Wow, that looks so fun to stay in!

Nicole said...

i never heard of yurts until yesterday and now they're popping up all over - what a perfect compromise for campers and non-campers alike!

What an amazing vaca for kiddos. This would be a great way to dip our toes in, last year we rented a country house in Twillight, the country is a great get away from the city.

Anonymous said...

YES !! I love yurts. There is a wonderful state park in Cape Cod, MA that has yurts. It is a great park with lakes and bike trails and right across the street from an ocean beach. It is a great way to "camp". I loved seeing this on your site.

Blue Muse said...

Yurts are so great. I have peeked in online at this destination before! I love to hear that it's as cool in person as it seemed. This sounds crazy, but I would love to have one on our property for an office/guest quarter. :) Maybe.

I've stayed here before- treebones- it was so magical. they have a human-sized birds nest you can lounge in and watch the water and the sunset. amazing to say the least.

Fraser said...

My sister in law lives in a yurt full-time in Asheville, NC and sends the most beautiful photos through of the roof (which is covered in clear contractor's plastic) and capture the changing seasons, starry nights, and enchanting light of dusk. What an incredible way to live or vacation!

Can't say no to luxury camping; we write about yurts and tent bungalows in Sunset: http://www.sunset.com/travel/sylvia-beach-hotel-00400000015154/

Cool! I've never stayed in a yurt, but the town I grew up in in coastal Maine had more than its fair share of aging hippies and had a small community of yurts in the woods! People lived in them full-time, year-round, through the Maine winter. I visited one and it was cool, save for the obvious difficulty of decorating a round home. :-)

melissab said...

hey there.
i live in a yurt.
we've modified it to be more cosy (ie. more insulation, poured adobe floors, solid windows, woodstove), but it's still a big tent.
one of the yurt companies is located in my town in western colorado.

I spent 15 nights in a yurt during my yoga teacher training course. Amazing. I really would like in one (or a cluster of them).

This looks like an adventure I'd love to try! So cool-I'll have to go there someday! Thanks for posting on such a cool destination!

I got married in Big Sur! It is a magical place. We now bring our son (almost 3) camping to Pfieffer Big Sur camp ground every summer. We would like to spend an anniversary at one of the inn`s one of these years. I highly recommend taking the drive on Highway 1 up the coast from San Luis Obispo to Carmel/Big Sur.

Steph said...

That's really funny because our friends are going to Big Sur in April and they said they are staying in a yurt! I wonder if it's the same one!?

mia said...

This is awesome! My husband an I are taking a little road trip in two weeks from las Vegas to San Fran with plans to drive and camp along the coast! Pretty sure we'll try to stay in a light house and the "human nest" along the way now thanks to your tips. Thanks so much!! I can't wait!

Votre Amie said...

Awe man!!! For my husbands b-day I was debating whether to gift him a trip to Big Sur or to Napa, we've been to neither before but I knew he was a fan of Northern Cali, wanted to see some redwoods and go on some adventures. I ended up choosing Napa, and now after seeing this post I'm kind of wishing I had gone Big Sur!! Ahhh well...next time!! It looks so cool though. So romantic and rustic! I am not a serious camper, so this would be right up my alley :)

Anna said...

I laughed out loud when I say this post- we stayed in a yurt in the far, far northwest of China, where yurts are a common form of shelter. It was so extremely basic, dark & freezing and so far from the beautiful images you show here.

writer.elh@gmail.com said...

My family has stayed in yurts on the Oregon coast for years now. It's a great way to feel like you are roughing it, without actually have to rough it.

Hilary Grace said...

My very best friends picked up 3 years ago and moved from the east coast city we all lived in to an organic farm in Eugene, OR. And they moved straight into a yurt. :) I'd love to visit someday.

My high school english professor had his class build and take apart a yurt every year in the woods on campus. Very cool experience.

My hubby and I stayed in a yurt in Big Sur on our honeymoon a couple of years ago. It was awesome.

Ellen said...

My boyfriend LIVED in a yurt in Idaho in the dead of winter. He said it was one of the greatest experiences he's ever had. They would keep a wood fire burning all night and shovel themselves out of it in the mornings.

While I haven't stayed in a yurt, I have stayed in a tent bungalow at Costanoa (in Pescadero, CA) and they are amazing!

No we haven't stayed in one yet, but we are planning it for this summer. So excited.

Sally said...

OMG! I have been dreaming a yurt getaway a few years now.. I've been on this Big Sur yurt website before but never pulled the trigger. When the weather is nice enough, it's way better to go camping in Big Sur. Check out Windsong Yurt in Point Reyes. It's another a great option!

Lindsay Lou said...

I live in Oregon and we yurt "camp" all the time. The State Parks have campgrounds with yurts for $16/night. I also stayed in a yurt for my honeymoon on Orcas Island at Doe Bay Resort. It was amazing!!

joolee said...

yurts are TOTALLY fabulous - we live in Vancouver, WA and go camping in yurts all the time with our kids. i wouldn't call it "camping" really, with lots of space and a HEATER too! they're terrific for camping with kids and also booked solid - we reserved one a month ago to go in August! they're super popular and i highly recommend them!

Hey! 1. I LOVE this posting. I'm obsessed with outdoors, traveling, and camping. 2. I read your blog everyday! and 3. I saw you biking today at the corner of Broadway and Prince! It made me so happy to see you in real life. Made me realize you're a real person. And you also looked very cute :)

Phillipa said...

I stayed in a teepee (tipi?!) with my boyfriend last year, and there were yurts on the same campsite, it was great! In the UK it's called glamping, as in glamorous camping, where you don't have to put up a tent, get wet or worry about sleeping on the ground in sleeping bags! The yurts even had solar panels on the roof so you could have electricity if you needed it, although candles are more romantic! Xxx

Joanna, I lived in Mongolia for a few months, and in the countryside there, everyone lives in yurts (called gers in Mongolian). They were a wonderful place to stay. But your sister's vacation yurt looks a lot more luxurious!

krisel keeper said...

Big Sur is one of my all time favorite places to visit....and btw, it's amazing to be there when pregnant. Most of the hotels have all organic shampoos, etc bc they are so eco-conscious. We've always wanted to stay in the yurts but I think they don't allow kids...true? So, sort of doesn't work for us. If you ever go to Big Sur you MUST go to the Big Sur Bakery!!!! It's so delicious I can't stand it! They're a full restaurant.

Virginia said...

Love your post! I wish I could live in a Yurt..

Patti said...

This looks beautiful! I'm not much of a camper...but this could be a lovely compromise for my camper boyfriend and I. Will definitely try yurt-ing!

The hubby and I honeymooned last summer in Big Sur. It was amazing! If I had to summarize our trip in two words: magical. fairyland. We can't wait to go back!

My friends and I use to sneak out to a Yurt when we were camp counselors to get a break from everything!

Brigette Olmos-Arreola said...

how fun, i grew up near big sure and now i can't wait go to back and stay in one of these!

Emily said...

We lived in a yurt one summer in Maine! My husband built it with his family, it was pretty great (a lot smaller though, it fit on top of the volvo all folded up). I loved living in it - it's a fun space, and all the wooden parts in ours are painted BRIGHT orange!

Lindsey Fyfe said...

I recognize Treebones!! The campsites are a good way to go, too, and cheaper. Still include all the perks like the big porches, pool, restaurant. Did you know there are belgian waffles included in the AM?


Big Sur is life-affirming.

We spent New Year's Eve in a Yurt in the Uintah mountains in Utah. It was wonderful!

katie//salt+pine said...

Lots of people live in yurts around my town...they go from super simple to pretty pimped-out. My recommendation is to not sleep in one during windy, rainy nights, though. Crazy loud in there!

Cathi said...

Fabulous! My girlfriend has lived in a yurt for many years in Kauai and she loves it!

Hannah said...

Not quite yurts, but I love "Surfari" tents in Australia. They're a cross between cabins and tents, and we stay at an amazing location on the north-east coast of Australia. It's amazing to sleep in a real bed while listening to raindrops on the canvas roof!

sheralynt said...

Big Sur is breathtaking. My husband and I traveled along the Californian coast a few years ago and we absolutely loved it. Nepenthe Restaurant and Big Sur Bakery were an awesome treat after a day of hiking!

We had looked at Treebones but unfortunately, it was a little out of budget - we ended up staying in a little inn in Carmel instead (charming little town). Maybe one day we will go back for the yurts!

Reyna @fashionmist♥ said...

Beautiful! xx

Hannah said...

I love it! My husband and I dream of owning our own yurt one day. It's our second home fantasy. The simple living associated with yurt living greatly appeals to me. Someday...

in dreams said...

i haven't slept in one, but my mum got a weekend visit to one from my dad for a 'romantic' getaway, last year. she loved it! i think it's best for outdoorsy types, at least up in canada (too cold otherwise! haha)...these shots you've posted look nothing like the shots of what my parents visited!

Bridge said...

Love the yurts! And boy do they look cozy or what!?!

They remind me of some temporary do-it-yourself housing in this book

I've been to Treebones! Yurt #15. It was such an incredible, calm, and unique vacation. My fiance and I stayed for three nights, hiked the local trails, and dined on the DYI waffles and oatmeal every morning and their sushi bar at night. Pure bliss.

I'm form Spain and am planning to visit California during my honey moon this September. I'm definitely going to include two nightss in a Yurt in Big California! We want to have a travel with both, cities and nature, so we think California is the perfect destination. What do you think? We were thinking about visiting Yosemite, Grand Canyon, San Franscisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and spending some days just relaxing on the beach... Are there any places that you'd specially recommend? I'll appreciate any suggestions!

i've been dreaming of staying in a yurt ever since my neighbour moved out to live in one... thanks for the beautiful photos!

My friends LIVE year-round in a yurt (pictures here!) and it's the coziest little house you ever did see. They sleep in a loft that is built over the little kitchen area in the middle of the yurt. Pretty cool.

Chessa! said...

Big Sur is breathtaking. I camped there the summer after I graduated from college with my best friend. I went to visit her in SF and we went up to her parents' house in Sonoma county and then we drove all the way down from sonoma to Los Angeles. Along the way we stopped every where including Big Sur. It was so long ago and I honestly can't wait to do the trip again. We did the whole thing in about 4 days and then I stayed with my cousin for a while in Laguna Beach and continued the drive into Mexico and then back up to Las Vegas before coming back home. A fantastic trip. Next time a Yurt sounds like SO much fun. I'm not much into camping anymore so it would be fantastic!

Wouldn't recommend this to anyone anymore!

Kate said...

My husband is an anthropologist; I think he'd LIVE in a yurt if I'd just agree. I have this theory on camping:

I've notice that "campers" tend to be people who are heavy packers. I'm an extremely light packer. I once packed one carry-on for three people {including an infant using cloth diapers} for a two week vacation. Camping takes so very much stuff it makes me feel ... stifled and overwhelmed. It's for heavy packers; spas are for light packers.

My husband and i are talking about moving into a yurt! They're so beautiful and simple. Plus, I can't think of a better way to spend the next couple years before we start a family!

Oh my, I've been obsessing over the idea of going to Big Sur for the past two weeks, and now you post this. I think it's meant to be.

My dear friends (a family of four) live in a yurt. They have a loft, a kitchen, bathroom, and a wood-burning stove to keep everything cozy. It's lovely.

Taylor said...

I've stayed at Tree Bones (the resort in Big Sur you metioned) and it is awesome! It's great for both couples and families since they have such a great land set up which gives pretty much everyone their own space with an amazing view and scenery. I really can't say enough about the place. This past Thanksgiving was an unusual one where it was just myself and my mother and her boyfriend. I decided to try something unconventional for the holiday and book a stay at TreeBones and it turned out to be one of the most relaxing and wonderful family times I've had in a long time, not to mention Thanksgiving Day meal was completely prepared by the resort! Everything was organic and made perfectly. As I said, I cannot say enough about the place. If you're ever in CA in Big Sur, I would highly recommend it.
