Pet-Friendly, Off-the-Grid Yurt with Heating in Monticello, Utah
Description of Glamping Units
The yurt is fully-insulated from floor to ceiling, so turning on the small propane heater or putting a couple logs in the wood-burning stove will take the nip off the coldest of days. A ceiling fan will also help circulate the warm air flow and keep guests' toes warm at night, and the three windows and liftable dome can help circulate cool air for the warmer months.
For sleeping, there is a queen-sized bed, a large, single-sized couch, a full-sized futon, and a single-sized, pull-out bed. The kitchen area has a sink plumbed to the outside for washing dishes inside the yurt (but no running water), and there is a double-burner stove and all supplies for cooking and eating. Sheets, blankets, propane, and a 55-gallon drum of non-potable water are provided during spring, summer, and fall, and 10 gallons of non-potable water are provided during the winter season.
The site lights up the night quickly with the almighty power of the sun. It is equipped with a small solar system to power basic appliances, including lamps, so guests can snuggle up on the couch and read about the next day's adventure. Read More

Location + Surroundings
This cozy yurt provides the comforts of your home, but the owners have stripped away all the nonsense, all the distractions, and all the noise and stress. The yurt is located in wide open country near snow capped mountains. The site is located 7 miles north of Monticello, Utah, and 40 miles south of Moab, Utah, off of Highway 191.
The yurt will time warp guests back 50 years: chopping wood, heating up water, and breathing in the fresh high desert air of southeast Utah. It's time to decompress, slow the hectic pace of modern times, and enjoy the great outdoors! Read More
The yurt is a short walk away from a country road, but because it is at an elevation of 7500 feet, an all-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended. If neighbors have to pull guests out, there is an additional $25 fee. Roads are plowed after snow in the winter, and guests do not need high clearance.
