See what our other guests have had to say about their stays-

“It’s an experience I would repeat with pleasure. Difficult to be short about my highlights: hearing the loon at night certainly, waking up with the quarter moon over my head, seeing the progression in changing colors of the leaves,the views from Mount Cadillac, and Beech Wood trail, Jordan Pond and the Bubbles,so many things really.” - Christine from Montpelier, France, Sept 2018.

"We were so at peace when we got here we just spent the rest of the day hanging at the yurt enjoying the peace and quiet today we are heading to the ocean!"- Jody from New Hampshire, July 2018

"We could not have found a more idyllic place, plus it was our first experience in a yurt. We found your notes about Acadia super helpful and the yurt was just so beautiful and cozy. Having a hot bath and a little fire in the wood stove after a day of biking the Carriage Roads and swimming at Sand Beach could not have been more perfect. So glad we were at the yurt to enjoy the area and Acadia. We had an incredible stay and are hoping to come back next summer."- Jenn & Neil, August 2018

Access and Convenience! The location puts you in a perfect location for trip to Mt Desert Island and Schoodic Point. Wood was provided for a fire at the site which is always a plus. The site is nestled into the woods with nice tree coverage and offers privacy that you can't find at most of the sites inside Acadia. I would certainly recommend this site for those looking to avoid the crowds of the national park.

The Mongolian Wall Tent was spectacular. First off: there is a heated bathtub - what better way to start or end a day exploring? The Wall Tent gets amazing, soft light in the mornings, making waking up here all the more magical. There is a porch along the far side of the Wall Tent that looks over a small clearing in the woods, and a rocking chair to sit and pass time in. The place stays very warm with the wood-powered stove. It has a full kitchen which makes cooking a breeze as well.

Staying here is an absolute luxury, can't think of a place I'd rather be while exploring this area.

Approach to the wall tent!This stove will surely keep you warm.The view into the woods from the porch.A reminder of how close you are to Acadia!

It was a great place to stay outside of Acadia. Yurt-keeper was really nice and helpful showing us how to manage the generator. It was clean and comfortable. We brought our own sheets/sleeping bags because I wasn't sure about the set-up, and it worked out well to have some of our own stuff. We made dinner our first night and the kitchen was stocked with most everything we needed. This place is a hidden gem. Our family really enjoyed our stay!!! Thanks!

We had such a wonderful time at the Tent! We checked in and made a fire outside in the fire pit, had a bath inside with hot water and relaxed. It was cozy and made for a really nice night. We would love to go back!
