Yurts In & Near Glacier National Park, USA

While some yurts are commonly found in Mongolia and Kyrgyzstan, travellers may still try it around Glacier National Park. Nestled in the Rockies’ of Montana, tourists who wish to hike through the mountains visit the place as it is one of the desirable activities of the park. If you have a permit, you can even camp on the campsites along the trails! However, I propose trying out the yurts in the area. These yurts are far more modern in style and much more convenient- some with electricity or air-conditioning, as opposed to the traditional yurts used by the nomads in Central Asia. While staying in yurts may be unconventional, its uniqueness is what makes it truly enjoyable and livable. Everything you need to know about living in one may be on the list below. So take the chance and check out the best yurts in and near the Glacier National Park, USA!

1. Beautiful upscale yurt bordering on Flathead Lake (from USD 140)

First on our list is this two-bedroom yurt in complete isolation on the northern end of Flathead Lake. Guests may indulge in the beautiful, outstanding 360-degree views of Flathead Lake, Glacier Park and Whitefish Mountain to the north, the Swan Mountains to the east, and the Blacktail Mountain. But that doesn’t end there! During the day, clear blue skies are set to greet you warmly and for the finale, the gleaming stars of Montana at night. As it is in the secluded area, guests will need to bring a car which they can freely park on site. There’s also an ample living-dining space, and a kitchen well equipped for all the guests’ needs. The yurt is air-conditioned and features a heating facility at the same time, so guests need not worry whatever season they’ll be visiting. Also, if you happen to share this wonderful trip with a baby, you may ask for a crib which also makes it kid-friendly.

2. Spencer mountain solar yurt (from USD 130)

If the first one is in a remote with open field space, this time, let’s check out the yurt that can be found in the woods on a mountainside. Surrounded by trees and lush vegetation, this solar-powered yurt is the perfect spot to enjoy activities like hiking and horseback riding. Tourists may find various trails for bikes to see more of the beauty the neighbourhood has to offer. It is only 5 miles (8 km) downtown Whitefish and will only take 45 minutes to drive to the Glacier National Park. The kitchen features basic cooking necessities and appliances such as a stove, a refrigerator, and a coffeemaker. Guests may also hang out in the backyard where a BBQ grill is available for use. Unfortunately, travellers may only experience this yurt on the latter part of May until end of September each year. So you better plan your visit during these months!

3. Glamping in Polebridge, MT near Glacier National Park (from USD 110)

What’s a better way to completely enjoy and relax? Stay in a place where there’s no Wi-Fi and completely disconnect yourself from the stress of the hurly-burly city! This yurt is a traditional Mongolian Ger where there’s no electricity and running water. However, the clean drinking water in a container will be handy at the property. Just like some of the yurts you’ll find in town, this private accommodation is only available during the months of June through mid-September. But trust me, these are the best months to enjoy this place! Please do also take note that as it is nestled in the woods, there would be no public transportation present during your visit. I suggest bringing a four-wheel drive to go in and out of the property conveniently!

Amenities & Room:
The ger was cozy despite cold temperatures
The bed was comfortable and came with plenty of down comforters perfect for the chilly fall nights All amenities described were available
the beauty of the ger was astounding
The Ger is clean and cozy and the composting toilet and sun closet shower is very easy to use even if you aren't an experienced camper
we enjoyed our first time taking sun showers & the little town of Polebridge was very quaint &
Cleanliness:
It is very clean and nicely decorated and never felt cramped
The ger was very clean and surprisingly spacious
and it was very simple to "put the top on" and everything stayed
Host:
and she got us all checked in and set Robin
She was a very responsive and helpful host
Anne was there to welcome us and show us around
When she is not in Polebridge she has her caretaker Addie meet you
She was a great host and was prompt to answer any questions we may have had
Location:
but way too cool to pass up
but it's way better
This area gives you access to quiet and fun but far less scenic and memorable hikes than other parts of the park
spectacular - Polebridge sits between two mountain ranges which makes for amazing sunsets and starlit skies at night
Just like it says in description Glamping at its finest

4. A bright and cozy yurt (from USD 89)

Here’s yet another treat for solo travellers or couples who wish take advantage of staying in a lovely and cozy yurt. It is conveniently in about 7 miles (11 km) from the Glacier National Park, so it’s easier to visit! Travellers may access common areas like the bathroom and the kitchen.

This yurt is also dog-friendly so guests may tag his or her best buddy along during the trip. They are very much welcome just like the adults staying in the yurt. Although dogs are not allowed in the Glacier National Park, there’s a dog kennel available on site for your Fido to rest safe and sound while you are away!

5. Beautiful private yurt (from USD 225)

For only about 7 miles (11 km), tourists may reach the West Glacier entrance quickly in Glacier National Park from this property. Nestled in the serene woods of Coram, the yurt is earth-friendly and will give its guests all the conveniences and comfort even though it is hidden in the woodlands. The yurt functions like a house where a sitting area, a dining space, and a bathroom is available. It has an attached bathroom complete with shower, toilet, washer, and a dryer. The kitchen comes with a stove, a refrigerator, and a sink for your use during your stay.

super energy and sensibility of the yurt in the woods
Host:
the live edge wood slabs are a great design element
the place is absolutely immaculate and vern has taken so much time and thought to make this experience special for every guest
the location worked very well for us, the yurt was clean & well appointed
Location:
i just want to clarify by saying that the trains are located across the river a few miles away and that the subtle noise occasionally echoes through the valley
the craftsmanship is awesome and in a nice spot nestled just outside of west glacier in a wooded area
it's a little loud at night with the train nearby but the woodland sounds are also nice to listen to
outstanding location
it by no means kept me from sleeping

6. A brand new yurt (from USD 225)

This yurt has recently opened its doors to travellers on July 1, 2018. As it is new, guests will instantly feel fresh, cozy, and may take advantage of using spick and span amenities and equipment. Example of these is the kitchen, the bathroom, the bedroom, and the living area. Again, there would be no public transportation available in the area, so it’s better to bring a car or rent one before your stay. There’s a gas station accessible nearby and a spacious parking space for the guests. You’ll find two local restaurants not far from the property and two adventure parks namely Glacier Highline & Amazing Fun Center.
