Birdsong yurt is a truly unique and special lodging experience you won’t forget. An ideal couple’s getaway or perfect place for friends and family to relax and connect with loved ones. Located on one private acre of land surrounded by trees, you will feel close to nature while still having the comforts of modern conveniences. The deck is the perfect place to enjoy the Mountain View, watch the sunsets and stargaze with a glass of wine by the gas fireplace or soak in the Hot Tub!

Birdsong Yurt is not your average yurt! The yurt is a 30-foot Great Lakes yurt with lots of upgrades. Every detail has been thought through to make this yurt experience as cozy and relaxing as possible. The yurt can sleep two to four people, with a king bed in the main living area and a queen size bed in the back bedroom. Each bed has comfortable fresh clean bedding. The yurt features full kitchen to include a small refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, small 20" cook stove/oven, double cast iron sink, drip coffee pot, tea kettle, microwave, toaster/air fry oven, dishware/glassware for 2-4 people, silverware and cooking utensils, dish towels, dish soap, olive oil, vinegar, cooking spices, cookie sheets, muffin and loaf pans. The bathroom has a 48" stand up shower with rain shower head and is stocked with towels, hand soap, bar soap, hair dryer, starter toilet paper and paper towels for your stay. The living space has a sofa and two chairs perfect to sit and read a book by the fire, play some games or settle down and watch a movie on the 43" smart Roku tv. The yurt is heated with a comfortbuilt pellet stove which is easy to use and can be left unattended for a day out to come back to a nice warm space. We also have a Mini split heat pump which is an additional heat source but also provides air conditioning to keep you cool and comfortable in the warmer months.

Outside space

Large beautiful deck is the perfect spot to enjoy a soak in the Hot Tub after a day of outdoor adventure!  There is a gas fire pit on the deck with seating as well as a dining area and gas grill. We also have a wood burning fire pit area (We do not supply wood) but there may occasionally be some left on site. Corn hole game and picnic table in the fire pit area. 

Location
The location is perfect for anyone looking for adventure! We are 13 mins to Mt Abram and 27 mins to Sunday River Ski resort! There are many lakes and ponds nearby that are perfect if you are looking to go fishing, kayaking, or looking for a place to cool off in the summer. We are close to many hiking and ATV/snowmobile trails. The town of Bethel is a 15-min drive and has some great restaurants, activities as well as a small grocery store. See our guidebook for more places to see in the area!

We live about 40 mins away from the property but can be available most of the time if the need arises. We also have local help available. We can be reached by phone, text, or through the platform should any questions arise during your stay. This is a self check-in property with keyless entry. We can assist remotely if you have any trouble with the lock. We will also have a lockbox with key just in case there are any issues.

Birdsong yurt may look like a beautiful house, but it is good to keep in mind that it is still a glorified tent. It is insulated and warm in the winter with proper heating but on really cold below zero nights it may struggle to stay above 65 degrees, but sleeping is comfortable with an extra blanket. During the day with the sun, it is easier to keep temps comfortable. Another thing to keep in mind is that being a "tent" you may also find small bugs or spiders in the summer months, but we will do our best to control any pest with monthly pest control. One of the best things about staying in a yurt is the closeness to nature, hearing the bird songs, listening to the wind and rain. While some will find these sounds relaxing others may find the sound of the wind unsettling. Rest assured that the yurt is modified with a full snow and wind load package and just by the shape of the yurt it is designed to handle wind very well and is solid! Please note the yurt has a drilled well and septic system and nothing other than toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet! (No Feminine products are to be flushed!). We do allow up to two dogs at the yurt with prior approval. Dogs are not to be left unattended on the property or inside the yurt for any reason and you must clean up after your dogs. There is a pet fee of $35 per dog per stay. Unauthorized Dog or pets, dogs left unattended or dogs that bark excessively will be asked to leave. We do not allow cats or any other pets. We do not allow smoking of any kind inside the yurt we will allow smoking outside of the yurt at least 10 feet away. Smoking of any kind inside the yurt will result in loss of full deposit. Yurt has a max occupancy of 4 adults or two adults and two children. No parties or gatherings permitted.
