The yurt provides an opportunity to be present in “nature at its finest” and to fully partake in the magic of the Dragoon Mountains at Cochise Stronghold. A few minutes walk from the main guest house, in a secluded grove of juniper and oak trees, the yurt offers comfort for a “wilderness experience par excellence.”
The yurt is a traditional structure – a Mongolian style walled tent. It is 30 feet in diameter (706 sq.ft. + loft) and is made of architectural fabric, hi-tech foil insulation, fir lattice & beam. The floor is made of pine.
It comfortably sleeps up to eight people with:
- 2 queen size beds (high quality mattress)
- full size double futon
- two deluxe single beds (both high quality mattresses)
The yurt is heated with a propane heater and cooled with an evaporative cooler, an overhead fan circulates the air. The design is ingenious, in the summer hot air rises through a dome which opens and closes. There is electricity inside the yurt and a sink for washing up.
Children adore the yurt, but young children can stay only if attended by a responsible adult at all times. Children must be over the age of 8 to stay.
What To Bring:
Flashlights, coolers, water bottles, camping gear, bathing suits for the hot tub, field guides…
Just a short distance from the yurt is a beautiful fire pit for your enjoyment and campfire cooking. As we are a wilderness location, food preparation is not allowed inside the yurt. Pre-prepared meals can be heated up. Bring or borrow a cooler from us if you want cold storage. We wish to avoid any potential problems with insects, skunks, ringtail cats and mice.
Shower & Bathroom:
There is a new deluxe bathroom (shower, vanity and flush toilet) in our cook shack building and an ecologically friendly composting toilet nearby. There is also a solar shower next to the hot tub, wonderfully hot after a few hours of sunshine. The yurt is equipped with hot running water at a sink inside.
The hot tub is available to yurt guests for your private use whenever available. It is a wonderful place to stargaze our dark night skies. Showers are required of everyone prior to use.
We make every effort to keep this availability up to date, please try our online reservation system. Your reservation will be confirmed within 24 hours.
