Sleep in a Yurt in Brownfield

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Yurt Front Mountain Yurts

You love to hike, you love the clean mountain air, you love mountain biking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. But you know what else you love? A comfortable place to sleep at night. That’s where yurts come in. They’ve been around for centuries but are enjoying something of a renaissance, and there are several spots in Maine you can find them. One is Frost Mountain Yurts in Brownfield. They’ve got four different yurts available, all near a network of trails. The yurts are open all year round, are eco- and pet-friendly and are located on 60 acres of private land. Nature is calling. Will you answer?
