Alaska-tough made yurt: the Alaska version of a traditional Mongolian nomadic home.
Yurt life is much more connected to nature than conventional accommodation; connect to your surroundings; the sky, trees and song birds thru the skydome.
If you need fancy accommodation, need to be catered to, if you do not enjoy the woods, do not stay here. If you want to experience rural Alaskan lifestyle, are independent, enjoy being immersed in nature, enjoy peace and quiet, you will love it here:)

This is the most magical yurt we have ever stayed in! So cozy, charming and in such a nice quiet spot to unplug and enjoy each other’s company. You can tell there are a lot of warm, happy memories in that place. Thank you Rachel and Brian for such a great experience!

I stayed at the yurt for my birthday just for a night. Wish we could have stayed longer. A very cute space, nice amenities and the porch was really nice to sit and have coffee on. A lot of nice touches.

This Yurt was beautiful. Rachel and Brian were helpful reaching out to see if we needed anything. My boyfriend is convinced now he needs a tiny home. Haha

Great place to “rough it” for a night!! Close to town and things, cozy once you get the stove hot!
