About Kurt's Yurt
In the shadow of the 14,035 ft., Mt. Sherman, Kurt's Yurt is a 16' diameter yurt that sets on a 24' x 24' deck. It is nestled in the trees just below timberline. The yurt is equipped with propane stove, propane refrigerator, inside composting toilet, bunk bed, cots, sleeping bags and blankets, cooking utensils, chairs, tables, grill, inside wood stove and outside fireplace. In the vicinity is a couple great climbs up Mt. Sherman and Horseshoe Mt. The yurt sits at the headwaters of Four Mile Creek, which is awesome for fishing and looking for beaver. If you're a mountain biker, Brown's Pass will take to you incredible riding over in the Sheep Creek area. Additionally, the yurt is centrally located to all the rest of the riding in the South Park area. In winter, the yurt is accessible by snow shoe or skis with skins. The bowl above the yurt fills with snow for some awesome back country turns. It is an incredible, awe inspiring, peaceful place to be. The stars at night are incredible. The alpenglow on Mt. Sherman is the perfect show while you sit on the deck.

The vibe at Kurt's Yurt
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I thoroughly enjoyed the location of this yurt, it was remote enough to really feel alone in nature, but not too far from Fairplay to be inconvenient. There were plenty of amenities that any guest would appreciate, most importantly being the scrabble board! It would have been nice to have a full bed instead of two twins, but besides that it was a great spot. We enjoyed exploring the area, and it was close enough to our homes in Boulder/Colorado Springs, to make it an easy weekend getaway.
This yurt is quite secluded and has most of the necessities. My friends and I really enjoyed staying here. I'd highly recommend it. Heads up, the drive is about 14 miles off a paved road, so be prepared to drive through some pretty hairy roads, any 4x4 should be good to go.
Kurt's Yurt is one of a kind. It was the perfect winter adventure. The Yurt is in amazing condition, surrounded by incredible woods and serenity. The wood stove, bunk beds, camping chairs, outside fireplace and games cabinet leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. I can't wait to go back.
I had a blast at Kurt's Yurt. I was on a cross-country road trip with my mom and we took a little detour from our I-70 path to head a bit South to Kurt's Yurt, and I'm glad we took the little diversion as it was a great mother-daughter adventure. Kurt's Yurt is seriously stocked up with everything you could really need from pots, pans, mugs, oven, fridge, sleeping bags, firewood, coats, games, cots, chairs, and a toilet! He has directions for how everything works as well as guides on how places and activities to hike to near the Yurt. It was a bit difficult to find, but that is because we were not following his long detailed directions, once we backtracked after getting lost, we followed the directions more thoroughly and found the white signs leading to the Yurt with no problem. It rained the night we got there, but that was not too bad as we were able to use the wood stove and play some games with a deck of cards. The morning it was nice and sunny, so I wandered around the lovely Yurt area. It was a great escape into the woods for sure.
