There's no better way to experience yurt living then to actually go
and try it. But for those of us who don't have the free time and money
the next best thing is videos.
So this page's purpose is to encompass what it's like to live the yurt lifestyle thanks to the contribution of others who share their life on video.
Some people choose to have all of the modern conveniences with them while others choose a more traditional lifestyle. For the most part, everyone who lives in one has a simple life.
First let's take a look at what a yurt might look like with lots of modern amenities like a kitchen and bathroom. This one was found at Umpqua Lighthouse State Park (Oregon).
This one sleeps 7 people and in 2009 was $45 per night in winter, and $66 in summer.
It's located near Reedsport Oregon. Call 1-800-452-5687.

This last video that I'm going to show you on this page is about a man and his yurt house in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
