What is a yurt?

The yurts at Cyprus Lake are a modern version of a traditional dwelling used by the nomads of Central Asia. Yurts are a semi-permanent tent-like structure, circular in shape with a wooden lattice frame. Although yurts are classified as a tent, they are much stronger and offer better shelter from the weather. Our yurts are 6m (20ft) in diameter and well-appointed with furnishings including a woodstove, beds, large deck and propane BBQ. Each yurt has a locking door.


Why stay in a yurt?

Convenience: Arrive at your site and you don't have to set up any camping gear!

Comfort: Enjoy sleeping on a comfortable bed, instead of the ground.

Beat the weather: Stoke up the wood fireplace to keep you warm and cozy in the yurt during cold weather. In the summer, the yurts are kept cool with breezes through the window, roof dome and screened doors.
