One Reviewer said: The love shack was perfect for a weekend getaway. It’s only about a half hour drive to the southern entrance of the Grand Canyon. Even though it was small it was extremely comfortable and the wood burning stove kept us warm all night.

Another Reviewer said: We had such an amazing time at the Love Shack. The stars were breathtaking, and it was wonderfully romantic and fun! The place was well stocked, and we were nice and warm thanks to the woodstove. The hosts were lovely, Rob introduced himself and checked on our propane supply- we couldn’t believe how well put together space was. 10/10!

One reviewer said: Doreen’s little yurt on top of the mountaintop was the getaway my SO and I needed. The fireplace was cozy and the stars at night were beautiful. Doreen was very accommodating and communicative. We even brought our doggo and he loved it because he had his own fenced in area to roam! So that was a bonus for us. Overall, I would definitely recommend it.

Another reviewer said: When can we move in?? Doreen’s Yurt at the top of the mountain was an absolutely perfect escape. We felt cozy and blissful. The shower water pressure was stronger than expected! The fireplace was a cozy treat.

You are located on Navajo Land so it is important to understand the rules before you book.

One reviewer said: Wonderful escape from civilization! Truly felt in touch with the land + sky as if it were at my fingertips. The amenities were just as described and even on the chilly night we were there, the heater kept us warm. We did go ahead and bring some linens just to be Covid conscious but it wouldn’t have been necessary if not for that because there seemed to be plenty provided! 

The fire pit was well built and extremely easy to use and our sunset hike +meditation made for a glorious experience! I would suggest coming in the spring/summer if you plan on having a late night outside as temps drop quickly after night fall! Or just being layers to bundle up 🙂 The tent was shockingly clean and well maintained and nestled in the middle of very calming land! Perfect for anyone looking to unplug and have an easy evening in nature. It really felt as if the whole stay was effortless! We will definitely visit again!!

Yurt Glamping Tent, Fort Defiance

This is “glamping” on Navajo land at it’s finest. This is a primitive camping experience on a family ranch. Located in a quiet secluded area where the sheep and the horses roam free. Must be somewhat of an experienced camper to enjoy this spot. Electricity and water is limited. Our bathroom is an outhouse so if you are not comfortable with that concept this might not be the place for you.

Glamping Arizona

You will have the yurt entirely to yourself. You may roam within the fence and surrounding areas. Take a short hike to the black rocks or walk among the back pasture. Familiarize yourself with the area but please be weary of snakes or prairie dog holes. The desert wilderness will be right at your front door so please be cautious.

This is a primitive teal camping yurt tent located in the Goat Springs valley. The valley is accessible by dirt road only and the yurt is located in a secluded and serene location

One reviewer said: Jacinda’s place is amazing! It is nicely decorated and cozy. It has an incredible location that’s peaceful and idyllic. The description is very accurate with the exception that Jacinda fails to mention how wonderful their dogs are!!! It is absolutely worth the stay!

Another reviewer said: This is an awesome place! The pictures don’t do it justice. It is beautiful and so cozy inside. Not only do you get the life experience of staying in a yurt but the view from the front door is amazing. Best of all is the gorgeous night sky. There is even a huge skylight so that you don’t have to go outside to lay back and gaze at the stars.
