Are You A Yurter?

Written by 

It's fun to spend the night in a less than ordinary kind of space.

And yurts, a Mongolian original, fit the bill. 

The Snow Mountain Ranch at the YMCA in Winter Park, has recently debuted five new yurts, bringing the total number  to 12. Your family can snooze the night away in one queen bed and two sets of bunk beds, accommodating up to six people. An outdoor tent pad enables you to expand the party by adding another two persons (guests must bring their own tents). 

The yurts also include a microwave, mini fridge, prep table, picnic table, outdoor grill and fire ring. All yurts offer electricity and complimentary Wi-Fi.  The bathhouse, located nearby, has flush toilets, handicapped-accessible hot showers, hair dryers, a coin-operated washer and dryer and deep well sinks. Pets like unusual lodging options too. Bring them along for an extra  $10 per pet, per night. Yurts are available year-round and rates start at $89 per night.
