Best accommodation of our 12 day road trip!
My family and I stayed at the Escalante Yurts for two nights in early October. I booked the yurts without getting any input from my family because it seemed really fun and different to stay there. The yurts are on the outskirts of town, so my family got nervous driving up. When we got in our yurt and saw how cozy and well appointed it was all of their worries were put aside. The kids absolutely loved our two days at the yurts. They loved the outdoor space, making marshmallows at the fire pits, playing tether ball, and of course the instant access to Disney+ and Netflix! All of the staff we interacted with were so nice and helpful. They gave us suggestions on things to do in the area, provided us with yummy breakfasts (especially the croissants), and really thought through every need a family could have and provided for it. The town of Escalante wasn’t very welcoming, but we would go back just to stay at the Escalante Yurts again. We stayed at 6 hotels on our 12 day road trip to 4 National Parks and the Escalante Yurts were far and away our favorite accommodation!

Restorative rest in beautiful setting
Our stay at the Yurts came just at the right time in our week long trip through SE Utah. With aches and pains from hiking and bad hotels, this was an oasis for our family of 5. The yurts are just plain awesome and the kids were excited to stay (although they thought the would be more roughing it like Mongolia yurts). The linens were luxurious, the sky was dark, the bed comfortable, the location quiet, and the food they left for breakfast was tasty and plentiful. I even texted the 1st morning to make sure it was for just that day or if we needed to plan to use it over our 2 day stay. There were muffins, fruit, breakfast burritos, juice, and granola bars the 1st day and similar the 2nd with quiche and croissants. We woke up rested and ready to explore the Escalante area. One night, as I fell asleep, Mars shone through the skylight. Amazing. We also used one of 3 fire pits (they had the wood, lighter fluid, matches, roasting sticks, and water [to put the fire out]). Scott and Jen were great hosts. One of the highlights of our trip and definitely the best stay.

Go immediately! Plan to bring friends and enjoy creating your own yurt village. Great hosts. Awesome and convenient setting. Rather than going to mediocre restaurants , buy food and enjoy the private grill that each yurt has

Lovely, private yurt in beautiful setting, close to Escalante amenities
The rooms are even better than they appear on line and consistent with the finest hotel. The grounds are serene with swings, firepits (wood, matches, marshmallow forks, water to extinguish the fire all provided) and thoughtfully placed yurts for maximum privacy. Convenient spot to access Bryce and Escalante Grand Staircase sites. It is 1.5 miles from Escalante with several excellent food options.

Bucket List Item
I have always wanted to stay in a Yurt and finally got the opportunity with Escalante Yurts. It was amazing. Ironically we happened to be there when a cold front rolled through but was surprised how comfortable it was. It was clean and well appointed and I would stay again.
