Get cozy under the stars in a secluded backcountry yurt, nestled in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado.

For adventure seekers, this yurt-style Airbnb has it all. Tucked away in the beautiful backcountry near Creede, a stay here offers guests the chance to explore endless miles of hiking trails, barbecue on the deck, and gaze at a star-filled sky through the ceiling. Visit during the fall for a spectacular display of color. 

There's limited power and no running water, internet, nor cell phone service, so be prepared to fully unplug and disconnect.
