8 Minnesota Stays for the Adventurous Soul
This lovely yurt is a fabric tent with wood ray ceiling structure and folding lattice wall structure that give the very enclosure a calming restful effect. Situated up the hill in the woods from Lake Armstrong, the yurt offers privacy and seclusion with full lake access. There are two fully separate bedrooms with queen beds and a sleeping loft with twin beds A huge dining table offers space for wonderful meals and card & board games, projects and crafts. A wood stove can provide ample heat for those cold spring or fall evenings or the dead of winter. A wonderful site for a quilting gathering or a yoga retreat. The full kitchen has a sink with cold water cooler (to be filled from outdoor spigot), a refrigerator, a stove with oven, a microwave oven, a toaster and a coffeemaker. Hot water showers, lavatory sinks, and latrine toilets are down the hill in the bathhouse. Like our other cabins at Wilderness Wind, the Eagle Yurt does NOT have a toilet. The shared living and dining area has two sofas a large dining table and 8 chairs to accommodate meetings and gatherings and there is a wood stove for heat or atmosphere. A deck offers a view of the lake and slivers of sunset light thru the trees. Yurt guests have full lake privileges including use of canoes, kayaks, the lakeshore swimming and seating area, the lakeshore firepit for bonfires. There is a Chickadee gathering space down by the lake for meetings, sing alongs, exercise classes, sewing groups, group gatherings that can be rented additionally (or used freely if not already in use by a group). It has tables and chairs and awesome views in all directions of the lake and the surrounding woods. The yurt is large enough to sleep six on beds. There is one parking space up the hill from the yurt on Bradach rd. Additional parking available down the access road near the cabins. It it is also warm and intimate enough to be comfortable for a couple of couples, as a romantic luxury but rustic getaway for a honeymoon or anniversary couple, or even for a single person who wants to experience the respite and unearthly glow of a canvas yurt and its geometric structure as the light changes with the time of day and the weather. The Eagle Yurt is like nowhere you have ever stayed before!
