Wow. This year-round yurt on the outskirts of the White Mountain National Forest is a glamper's dream.
I will start with the accolades and recognition. The Raven's Nest, also referred to as "Secluded Comfort in the Woods," is a "Best of New Hampshire: 2022" Hipcamp finalist, according to the Hipcamp booking site.
Hipcamp is known for being the Airbnb of camping. People often rent out a piece of their land for $20 -$40 a night, allowing those who camp lightly and in tents a space to sleep for cheap.
Hipcamp also has a variety of really interesting stays such as treehouses, yurts, school busses, and more.
If you plan on exploring the east part of the White Mountain National Forest, I would strongly urge you to check out "Secluded Comfort in the Woods: The Ravens Nest." With a 95% rating and some spectacular reviews, the place must be a hit.
"What a lovely special place the best was! Stopped here for one night on our drive back to Chicago," said Andrew M. who stayed in June of 2021. "The tent was full of amenities and we loved just how silent and remote it felt...Loved it, wish we had been able to stay longer. Thank you for making such a special spot!"
"We had a fantastic time in this picturesque location," said Charles K who stayed in July of 2021. "The tent was wonderful and Carolyn goes out of her way to communicate and make sure your stay is incredible."
I have never stayed in a yurt; however, this one could be my first. The yurt has a porch and seems very open on the inside. The yurt includes a bed, dining area, and lounge/living area...all in one open, tent-like structure.
