Our Lotus Belle glamping yurts are a decadent retreat for people who want to enjoy nature in comfort. Imagine going for a hike, then spending the rest of the day reading a book on the plush memory foam bean bag and enjoying a cup of tea at the bistro table. Imagine spending the evening lounging on the queen size memory foam bed, to the flickering light of the clean burning in-tent fireplace.
This season we are set up next to a meadow and a grove of aspens in beautiful Kenosha Pass. The Colorado Trail runs nearby and there are wonderful opportunities for hiking, exploring with your dog, and viewing wildflowers and the turning of the aspens in their respective seasons.
Our beautiful Lotus Belle yurts feel light and and spacious inside. They are 13 feet in diameter, 6 feet tall at the walls, and about 9 feet tall in the center. You can move freely and stretch out in the space without crouching. The Lotus Belle is not only beautiful and spacious, but functional as well. It is constructed of waterproof canvas and has a waterproof floor. When the windows and doors are shut, our yurts shelter guests from rain, wind and hail. Mosquito net, clear vinyl, and canvas window coverings allow guests to moderate the temperature of the space while keeping insects out. Lay in bed and watch the wind move in the trees through the window, or close the canvas shutters to make the space cozy and private.
We also provide a camp toilet and a heated camp shower, each in their own separate tents. Our standard setup includes: - Carpeted tent floor. - A queen size bed on a wooden bed frame with a 6 inch memory foam mattress and bedding. - Two soft, fluffy, all-season comforters provide warmth on cold nights. - A small portable indoor fireplace for ambiance and heating. - A teak bistro set with two padded chairs. - A large memory foam bean bag. - A wicker chest containing some interesting books and guides about our recommended areas, instructions for using the camp equipment, - A first-aid kit, and other practical items. - A bathroom tent with a camp toilet. - A shower tent with a propane powered water heater for freshening up.
The access to our Kenosha Pass location is by dirt road. The site is accessible by a typical 2wd vehicle. Keep in mind that even 2wd dirt roads have sections with potholes, puddles, and washboarding. If you're new to dirt roads, take it slow.
Other things to note
Colorado is famous for the number of sunny days that we get. A typical summer day in the Rockies is sunny skies in the morning and some sun and clouds in the afternoon with about a 50% chance of intermittent showers or thunderstorms, followed by clear evenings. While the mountains are beautiful, they are also unpredictable. We can't guarantee that you'll get the perfect weather. However, we are committed to your stay in these majestic and powerful mountains being safe and comfortable.

The vibe at Kenosha Pass
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I absolutely loved my stay at Kenosha Pass Yurt! I drove up from Denver with my dog after work and still had plenty of day light. The yurt isn't actually that far off the highway and is very accessible, yet you still feel very secluded. It was just a short walk in from where we had to park. There is a campground (and dispersed camping I believe) nearby but I didn't run into anyone nor can you see people from the yurt. The surrounding area is beautiful! Loaded with aspens and also a nice big open field with amazing mountain views. The yurt itself was so cozy, clean and adorable and the bed was insanely comfortable with a nice big warm comforter. Also, the fire pit right outside made for a wonderful way to end my evening. Cynthia's communication was outstanding! She prepped me for exactly what I would need to bring and provided very detailed (and very accurate) directions on how to get to the yurt. I highly recommend this wonderful getaway and I certainly hope to be back someday!
The perfect secluded spot to enjoy a night in total solitude. The tent itself was quite cozy — the bedding was plenty warm, even when it got breezy and cool at night — and everything was very neat and clean despite being in the middle of virtually nowhere. The view from the tent is breathtaking, and hiking along the Colorado Trail was a real treat as we left.
