Description of the Southwest Harbor vacation cottage rental
Vacation in an ancient circular dwelling with all comforts of home

Acadia Yurts offers visitors the most unique way to stay on Mount Desert Island. Four fun, eco-friendly Yurts will bring you as close to nature as camping, with all the amenities of home. Located on 5 acres of lovely wooded land, surrounded by Acadia National Park property, Acadia Yurts offer a peaceful retreat for your small group (up to 4 guests per Yurt). Acadia Yurts is also ideal for large groups traveling with accommodations for up to 16 people on 1 site.

A yurt is a tent-like circular fabric structure with a wood lattice frame that originated among the nomadic tribes in Asia. These permanent structures have thick canvas exterior walls that include reflective insulation so they can be used in all seasons. Acadia Yurts also has electric heat inside each yurt so that you can be comfortable during any season. Yurts are quickly becoming a new vacation experience that vacationers are enjoying throughout the US from cliff side views in California to ski lodges in Colorado. This is a memorable place to stay while enjoying the beauty of Acadia!
