Spirit Walker Yurt | Private Rental

Quick Details

Hut type: Private yurt

Pets: Pets are not allowed

Sleeps: Up to eight people

Warm and Toasty

A 16-foot yurt, Spirit Walker has four single bunks and two double bunks, with space to sleep eight guests. Stay warm on those cold winter nights in this cozy yurt!

Bunks are outfitted with mattresses, drawers for under bed storage, and hooks for hanging wet gear. The yurt itself is insulated and there is a propane heater that keeps you warm and toasty when the temperature drops.

Spirit Walker is animal-free in order to accommodate folks with allergies. Like Toba’s yurt, the yurt itself was handmade by Nomad Shelter in Homer, Alaska.

  • Chevron down Included in Rental
  • The Manitoba property is fully outfitted with mattresses on bunks, dishes and utensils in the cabin kitchen, wood for the wood stoves, and propane for cooking. Yurt guests are welcome to enjoy the shared cabin amenities. An outhouse is also located on the property for all guests to use.

  • Chevron down What to Bring
  • Bring your sleeping bag, food, water, and friends! We have a long tradition of guests who leave Manitoba cabin and yurts in even better shape than they found them. Please be sure to collect and pack out all your clothing, gear, and food (including spices, condiments, coffee, tea) before you leave. Edibles attract unwanted visitors!

  • Chevron down What We Don't Have
  • We don’t have running water in the cabin or yurts, but Canyon Creek runs right by the property and is a reliable year-round source of water. The water should be treated by boiling, filtering, or chemical means before drinking. We don’t have any electrical outlets available either. We encourage you to use this opportunity to unplug and enjoy the outdoors and your fellow visitors.

  • Chevron down What We Ask of You
  • The Manitoba property is an off-grid facility with no staff on site. We do our best to maintain the facility, but we’re a small non-profit, and our resources are limited. We ask that you take out all of your trash and leave the cabin cleaner than you found it. It’s a huge help to us, and it makes the next guest’s stay even better. Thanks!
