Travel: Yurts on the River! Why Yurtopia is the Perfect Staycation from Houston!

As an Architectural Influencer, I’ve stayed in several different styles of abodes, from lavish hotel suites to cozy tiny homes! However, I have to admit that yurts are by far my favorite! Ok so now you’re asking “what is a yurt anyway?!?”

Yurts are portable one-room structures once used primarily by tribes in Central Asia! Lattice walls support the yurt, with rafters fortified by a compression ring in the center of the roof. 

I had the opportunity to relax and enjoy the accommodations at Yurtopia Wimberley! Yurtopia Wimberley hosts two types of yurts: the remote yurts and the river bluff yurts.

Riverbluff Yurts:

  • Private sleeping and bathroom accommodations with shared amenities + river access 
  • King size bed
  • Power (lighting throughout and reading lights near the bed)
  • A/C (climate controlled)
  • Gas Fire Pits
  • Hammocks
  • A Miniature Refrigerator
  • Shared amenities include kitchen + 2 BBQ grills, large fire pit, and sunset view 100 feet above the Blanco River waterfront
  • Heated and jetted hot tubs with beautiful lighting (for soaking and relaxing well into the evening! My favorite way to end any day!!)

Remote Yurts:

  • Private yurt oasis designed for maximum privacy
  • Private bathroom and hot tub
  • Private gas fire pit, kitchen/BBQ grill, and sunset viewing from your own little rooftop deck
  • King size bed, mini-fridge, power, and AC

Staying in a yurt at Yurtopia was an experience of a lifetime! During my stay, I truly had time to decompress, relax, and enjoy the beautiful scenic views!

Wanna know what was the cherry on top of all of this? There was a trail to the river with a CANOE! The river access is so soothing and allows you to go on an adventurous hike!

Riverbluff Yurts are a great for a mini retreat with a few friends or family members to take full advantage of the shared amenities! If you’re traveling alone, it’s also a great way to meet new people! I met some really great people and made connections while decompressing on this Yurt-cation!

This was the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of Houston! You should definitely find a yurt near you, and if you’re near Wimberley, book your stay at @yurtopiawimberley! It is definitely on my list of places to return!!
