For those seeking an exotic lodging experience we offer our Yukon yurt. In modern Turkish the word "yurt" is used as the synonym of "homeland" or a "dormitory.” Set on a raised deck with pine floors, the yurt is incredibly spacious. With a front facing West one can enjoy the generous deck watching as the sun sets over Tonto mountain. Out back, the East facing deck offers a similarly beautiful view for morning tea, coffee (or Bloody Marys) to be enjoyed as the sun rises over Granite mountain.
The Yukon offers all the comforts you require. The couch and coffee table are arranged in front of the wood burning fireplace. There is a desk for those moments of inspiration, chairs for communal pleasantries, and a plush queen bed covered in cotton sheets and cozy blankets. A mosquito net is also setup to surround the bed to ensure a comfortable nights’ sleep. The yurt has a small kitchen with a refrigerator, coffee maker, hot plates, and a microwave. There is just enough glassware, dishes and utensils for various libations. Electricity offers romantic lighting and there are outlets throughout as well as plenty of screened windows. The best part? The giant clear dome on top that can be opened for ventilation and sky gazing.
* Shower and restroom facilities are just a short stroll away.

The word tipi comes into English from the Lakota language. The Lakota word thípi [ˈtʰipi] means "a dwelling" or "they dwell", from the verb thí, meaning "to dwell.”
While our tipis are not made of animal hide as the traditional tipis were, they are designed to be cozy and insulated using durable canvas and strategic roping. A stay in the tips is ideal for those looking for simplicity in a tranquil, thoughtful environment. If meditation is in your practice, the tipis are an excellent way to be entrenched within nature without the beautiful distractions wilderness can cause. The tipis sit on wooden platforms to elevate you slight off the earth where you’re free from the elements. There is space for multiple cots and a bed can be placed within the structure upon request.
