Who says you need running water and electricity to have a relaxing weekend away? Well, some people WOULD say that. But if you are someone who is down with a no frills, camping adjacent experience, you should probably check out this Yurt in Hopkinton, New Hampshire. It is located on a traditional farm with cows, horses, and sheep grazing in the fields around it.
The panoramic windows with a beautiful view of the fields and woods are a MAJOR selling point, especially this time of year.
Reviewers call the Yurt on Owen Farm "charming, unique and comfortable".
Liza recently wrote this review, which is basically poetry:
"Excellent energy space to help you recharge. First night we laid under hundreds of stars and it just felt like our accumulated everyday stress was draining from our bodies into the floor. Serenaded by katydids and a faroff coyote at night, and gentle livestock in the morning. We were very much left alone, which was perfect, but the people we did bump into were super friendly as well! Highly recommend."
Many reviewers also say that photos do not do it justice, but it still looks pretty cool to me!
The listing specifies that you must bring your own bedding and towels. There's also no shower, so you might want to bring plenty of deodorant as well!
There is no shortage of places to sleep, as they have one full size and one twin size fold-up futon couches downstairs, and two twin size roll-up futons that can be used separately or put together for another large bed. There are also two self-inflating floor pads, and two long cushions that some have used as a floor pad (pictured below).
