Definition of States Point Yurt: a stunningly beautiful and fully-equipped architectural marvel. A perfect and unique way to vacation along the coast of Maine.
Don't let the yurt photos on Wikipedia fool you — States Point Yurt is as permanent, well-equipped and beautifully outfitted as any cottage you will find. Staying here is truly the best of both worlds — nested in the woods with the ocean just steps away, a visit here is a hybrid of camping and a stay in a charming coastal Maine cottage.
States Point Yurt is best suited for 2 people and within its 600 square feet find a bedroom area with a queen bed, a sitting area with ample light for reading, a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining area and a full bathroom with a washer and a dryer.
Above it all, the beams and ceilings rise above the living areas, ending in a large round skylight which lets light in even on the murkiest of days. At night, lie in bed and see the stars shine down — there is virtually no light pollution here on States Point.
The yurt is heated by several monitor direct-vent heaters and passive solar — although privacy abounds, there are privacy screens that easily roll down. In addition, the windows can roll up (yes, there are even screens to keep bugs out) for fabulous ocean breezes.
A deck sits at the front of the yurt and offers full sun — perfect for reading or simply taking in the peace and quiet.
The kitchen is prepared for a meal of any size — you will be amazed by what wasn't overlooked!
In the spacious bathroom, find a stackable washer and dryer and a stand-up shower.
Staying a States Point Yurt also means unlimited access to the ocean via a private wharf — bring your chairs down and sit on the harbor or carrying your kayaks down and go for a paddle — Maine is yours to explore.
