News: We have a brand new shower house close by for use of Grove and Tipi guests. 

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.

This yurt was the perfect offline vacation for us… so sweetly placed at the end of the drive.. lots of privacy and private sitting areas along the River, plus beautifully furnished and well appointed.. There are actually a lot of things we didn’t need to bring like utensils and a little stove etc. It was really magical to wake up in the evenings and look at all the screens and see the moon shining off all of the surrounding nature and feel that gorgeous Colorado air coming through. The bed was incredibly comfortable and we loved being able to have a little fire in the stove at night. It is definitely a five star in our book! I am glad we brought a power pack though, because we didn’t really consider there was no electricity. It was nice to be able to charge our equipment in the yurt instead of at the shower and bath house that is shared with others.

The yurt was in a beautiful, peaceful spot near the river. It was spacious and light with creative touches throughout. The apple orchard nearby (within walking distance) had live music, good food and great cider. The hosts were friendly and full of great information/recommendations. Would definitely go back!

Thd Grove Yurt and entire property could not have been better! The year had everything that we needed, it was stocked with all kitchen items needed, and was clean and well planned with many thoughtful touches.
The property is gorgeous and very private, yet close to everything. The yurt is pet friendly and our pup loved trotting around and exploring with us.
George was extremely friendly, easy to communicate with, helpful, knowledgeable and really accommodating.
We will definitely be back!

This was our second time staying here, and it was just as good as we remembered. One thing to note, the town itself is more seasonal than we knew. Much of the town was closed (early April). Luckily, it made us just focus on being around the yurt more which was very relaxing. As usual, George is a great host and had everything we needed ready.

The Grove Yurt at Riverwalk is a really special place. We had the opportunity to experience all the beauty on and around the property, the wonderful hosts, and the larger geography and community. We would absolutely stay again and recommend to others. Just exceptional!
