Yurts are portable circular dwellings with a permanent wooden floor, a dome roof supported by beautiful wooden rafters that leads to wonderful skylight. The natural light from above and the four large windows truly gives you the feeling of being outside. The yurt allows you to feel as if you are part of the wilderness, but does not leave a permanent environmental footprint! Believe it or not, these structures can be taken down and moved if needed. Mother Nature gives her stamp of approval! Our structures are cooled by mountain breezes that flow freely through the multiple windows; the large ceiling fan keeps the cool air in and pushes the hot air out. In very hot weather each yurt is equipped with an air conditioner, to ensure your total comfort. In cooler weather the windows are closed and small eco-friendly heaters will help this efficient, well insulated structure to keep the chill out. These wonderful abodes were the perfect option for us because they are not only beautiful and environmentally respectful, they also offer the safety and structure of a home, with the earthy feeling of camping. Talk about having it all! Being environmentally friendly does not mean you cannot be comfortable! We designed each yurt to feel as if you were "glamping." They were thoughtfully and beautifully appointed with everything you should need to enjoy your stay away from home. The queen size log bed boasts high thread count sheets, elegant comforters and pillows, and a space- saving trundle bed underneath for two additional guests. There is a lot of nature at Blanche Manor. Gorgeous sunrises, colorful sunsets, and all kinds of wildlife await you. When you are ready to explore, our secluded wooded location has walking paths, a small pond, and of course horses passing by at the bottom of the property.
