The Grove Yurt is a primitive living situation by current "Condo-ified" standards of our 21st century housing. It is furnished in the well appointed farm house style of the 1930s in the Midwest. Most of the furnishing are actually from that time. It is also round, which is seldom seen in our current construction palette. After a stay in the Grove Yurt, you will have become Read more...

The Grove Yurt is a primitive living situation by current "Condo-ified" standards of our 21st century housing. It is furnished in the well appointed farm house style of the 1930s in the Midwest. Most of the furnishing are actually from that time. It is also round, which is seldom seen in our current construction palette. After a stay in the Grove Yurt, you will have become accustomed to its natural flow. After leaving, and returning to the world of forbidding corners, you will feel similar to those who have been at sea and return to walk and stagger upon the dry land. The Grove Yurt is nestled in a grove of Large and Narrow Leaf Cottonwoods with the river situated directly opposite. There is an unobstructed view of the surrounding mountains rising from our valleys organic farmland.(we have more organic farms Per capita of anywhere in the US). Inside the Grove Yurt, you can spin like Julie Andrews on her mountaintop and nothing can impede the 360-degree panorama framed by 8 - 4 x 4 foot windows, glazed Double French doors and an 8' x 8'screened opening. The city townhouses we see on late night movies, are generally 20' wide. The Yurt is 30' in diameter. When crossing the threshold, the Yurts fourteen-foot ceiling terminated by a four-foot tinted Plexiglas dome does have an impact after being at the river. We have a dining table, complete with hanging candelabra leading to certain Gothic overtones. The light, sound and smell waft right through the screened openings, giving the impression of being in the forest, but only slightly removed.

The king-size bed is placed next to this opening so that guests' attention is often balanced between the activities beyond the dome and the soundtrack of noises from the forest inches away. Heat is maintained through a well-stocked wood-burning stove and all the necessary tools to maintain a roaring fire late into the night. There is a leather rocking chair in which guests very well might fade into ultimate relaxation. The chandelier of course, reveals the rafters in ever changing lights and shadows of the soaring roof rafters with the morning and evening river breezes.

Directly outside, near the entrance, is an outdoor simple kitchen with limited cold water steel sink with prep area, ice refrigerator and gas stove. There is a composting toilet by Everlet in a horse trailer with all the niceties 20 paces from the yurt along a solar-lighted path. There is a four-person teak table directly on the river for outdoor dining. The Grove Yurt is the perfect place for rest, relaxation and a secluded getaway. It is removed on the south end of a 35 acre parcel. Our closest neighbor Delicious Orchards is known for its hard cider and organic fruit, a leisurely walk through the orchard for delicious food, often live music and a tastes of local produce in season. In addition, guests will have access to the rest of the property that stretches for a quarter of a mile along the river’s edge. Guests can expect to see amazing wildlife like elk, deer, eagles, red-tailed hawks, king fisher and blue herons and the sweet river otter family known to make an appearance for the most patient observer.

    Devon and George have a wonderful property tucked between gorgeous vistas and mountains. With a river, beach, plenty of wood to keep the fire pit, and wood stove within the yurt burning all night. The property is minutes away from breweries, an orchard, a farm to table restaurant, and the best donuts in Colorado. Make sure you're in town Friday morning for those donuts... The hosts were extremely accommodating, and gave us more to do in our stay than we had time for! We cannot wait to visit the Groove Yurts again!
