Happy Yurt-day to me!
This was my favorite stay on our trip out west. It happened to be my birthday too. I felt so spoiled staying here. They have thought of everything to give you a relaxing stay. The yurts are separated nicely to offer privacy and the views of the mountains were amazing. We watched the sunset from our patio chairs. We stayed in the Elm yurt which has an indoor or outdoor shower. So fun! The yurt also is air conditioned, but you can open the windows or pop open the skylight if you want. Because of Covid, breakfast was already in the yurt. We had yummy scones, quiche, fresh fruit, granola bars and juice. There is a microwave and small refrigerator, and ice is available at the office. This was a very comfy stay. I will return again!!

A taste of heaven among the red rocks and stars!
We loved staying at the Escalante Yurts! It was more than we ever expected! You could not ask for a more peaceful, gorgeous setting among the stars and red rocks. The beautiful rooms and service were superior quality, and we slept so well. The owners, Jan and Scott were very hospitable and made us feel like family. Our children loved exploring and playing on the property, relaxing in the swing chairs and taking outdoor (& indoor) showers! 🙂 We were even able to make S'mores on the gas grill since there was a state-wide no burn policy. Thank you so much! We can't wait to come back to experience this bit of heaven again!

Favorite property of three-week trip
Escalante is pretty remote, so you might expect hotels more in the motel realm. This was very far from that experience.
The yurts are in a valley off a hill five minutes outside of Escalante with a nice view of the mountains across the way. Each is in its own little alcove of rocks/trees with room for your car, a deck with chairs and grill, and your yurt. The accommodations were quite nice, with well-functioning A/C and heat, copious running water in a separate bathroom/shower setup, and nicely-considered decor. The king canopy bed was the most comfortable we had on our trip and the sofa slept two more family members easily on a comfortable memory-foam setup, not bad sofa bed springs.
A simple but good breakfast was provided, with baked goods, breakfast burritos, and fresh fruit. Good on-property amenities considering the location - multiple relaxing hammocks, fresh ice, a play area, fire pits (which we could not use during our stay due to fire restrictions throughout the West in summer 2021).
It's a unique property and was our family's favorite - the kids want to go back. Well worth the small premium in Escalante accommodation costs.

The most comfortable bedding and accommodations. Friendly owners and delicious breakfast. Couldn’t recommend more highly. All the details were considered. I loved the outdoor and indoor shower options.

We were really looking forward to this glamping pit stop between Bryce and Moab. We weren’t disappointed. The accommodations and amenities were top notch and Jan, the owner, thinks of everything. The grill had gas, breakfast was in the fridge and the beds were super comfy. I’d give it six stars if I could!
