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.

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.

The wood stove: it was pretty cold when we arrived and within the first few hours the entire Yurt was heated and toasty by the wood stove. We used the top for cooking! Snowed in :)Camping chairs and card games - both in the Yurt! Our view walking towards the Yurt.

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.

It was great to get away to Kurt’s Yurt! It was really on the edge of nowhere and Kurt puts a lot into coordinating a great experience. His directions are superb. I wasn’t counting on the road in taking so long and I even found the yurt in the dark. He has it clearly marked with white “Kurt’s Yurt” signs. Be warned it takes an hour to drive the road in once you leave the highway. The road is a rocky dirt road accessing National Forest land. The last 2 miles becomes a near 4x4 road, but I made it up despite not having a high clearance vehicle. It’s just bumpy that’s all. Nevertheless this didn’t discourage me, nor should it you. The Yurt is wonderfully equipped with pots, pans, a propane refrigerator, and a propane stove. Best of all are the composting toilet actually inside the Yurt, and the stove is a solidly constructed wonder that throws off a lot of heat. Kurt has stocked the deck with loads of wood. Kurt does have some water on hand, but it does help to bring what you need. The trick is lugging it down the hill, which is quite steep and a little slippery if covered in snowpack. But I knew what I was getting into going during the shoulder season. I hiked almost all the way to the Horseshoe amphitheater. It was magnificent. I’m so glad I stayed in Kurt’s Yurt! He is really gracious to share it. Thanks Kurt!

Kurt' said yurt is a little piece of heaven! Everything you need, beautiful views, and perfectly quiet to escape the hustle and bustle of the world. We've been here two years on a row and positive we'll be back for a third!

Drove many hours to the Yurt, only to find out it was double-booked by the host and another party was already there. Host apologized, issued refund, and offered free night in future. Looks like it would have been fun, but a lot of wasted time and disappointment.

Kurt's yurt was a lot of fun for my son and I. We got to break away from it all and have a great adventure in the forest. It was 10 degrees for a low on the night we stayed with a strong wind and we were nice and cozy in the yurt with the wood stove.
