Is it a true yurt? Nope. But its octagonal shape and pitched roof are reminiscent of one. Instead of canvas or woven walls, however, this 800 square foot cabin is solid through and through with a center stove pipe to help radiate heat throughout.
And, unlike most yurts, this one include two separate bedrooms, full bath, and complete kitchen. Open scheme with living room woodstove, lots of natural light, and French-style double doors that open onto a wrap-around deck. Out there, you’ll get some pretty mountain views. Imagine watching the autumn colors creep along the tops of the trees on the 5.2 acre property. Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it? And, for the listing price, it could also be a dream come true.
The property is located ten minutes from Roxbury village and 20 minutes from Plattekill Mountain skiing and snowboarding. If the crowds at Hunter or Belleayre aren’t for you, Plattekill might be more your speed. The vertical drop is 1100 feet as opposed to Hunter’s more impressive 1600, but if you’re looking for a family-friendly mountain with a rustic lodge, Plattekill is a nice place to spend the day.
