This 15' diameter yurt is on a quiet, sunny lot, nestled in the woods close to Talkeetna. This is rustic. Like, for reals Alaska-rustic. This is not glamping. There is a lofted bed, extra air mattresses and sleeping bags, LED battery-operated lights, a 4-burner propane stove for cooking, a skylight, a wood stove for warmth, kayaks to borrow, and a spacious new deck! Come visit!

This 15' diameter yurt is on a quiet, sunny lot, nestled in the woods close to Talkeetna. This is rustic. Like, for reals Alaska-rustic. This is not glamping. There is a lofted bed, extra air mattresses and sleeping bags, LED battery-operated lights, a 4-burner propane stove for cooking, a skylight, a wood stove for warmth, kayaks to borrow, and a spacious new deck! Come visit! I am happy to accommodate any guest for their camping experience on my property, but I do like to double-check that my guests fully understand what they are renting. There are no open fires allowed on the property in the summer, and no dogs, guns, or fireworks. There is no electricity or running water on the property, and even though I point that out every time I rent it, people still have arrived there and then send me messages asking where they can start a bonfire or asking where the shower is, lol. Other people who were fully prepared and wanted this "off-the-grid" experience have told me that my place was absolute heaven for them. Essentially, staying at this yurt is like camping in the woods with all the dirt and the hundreds of bug bites to go with it, and those that expect something more are usually disappointed. You should plan on bringing all of your own water and pack out all of your garbage. There are air mattresses provided but no sheets or laundered comforters, so please bring your own sheets or sleeping bag. There are a couple extra sleeping bags hanging around if you want to use them. Think of it like a forest service cabin, it is not maintained in between guests, and you might need to sweep it upon arrival and please give the place a quick sweep and wipe down of any counters. There is no cleaning charge associated with this listing and it is always on a self serve basis which makes it affordable for all of my guests! Make sure you read everything carefully and then let me know and we can finalize your yurt booking if you still want to. Thx! If you want to place with electricity and drinking water please don’t stay here. There are lots of lovely places like that in the Talkeetna area. If you want a place with no dirt or bugs, please don’t stay here. If you want to rent a place that is cheaper than mine, you should totally do that. Again, there are lots of lovely places until keep me to stay in my place is not the right choice for everybody. Other people have loved my property and tell me that I don’t charge enough.

This yurt was so cute and relaxing. A great “glamping” choice near Talkeetna. I’d definitely recommend checking out the birch syrup tour just a few miles away as well.

Cute, clean ittle place! I brought two of my boys while hubby had the other boy on their own adventure. Propane stove to heat water or whatever you have, comfy air mattresses, and a large deck for relaxing on. There is one other small yurt and a small cabin on the site as well, but parking is great and you feel very ‘in the middle of nowhere’. Blueberry bushes abound and we picked tons to put in our oatmeal for breakfast. Monica was very kind and helpful. Only suggestion is to bring your own lantern or headlamps; there’s no electricity and it get DARK in there!
