Ski all day at Shawnee Peak, stay all night at our North Ridge Yurt that sits atop Pleasant Mtn. Enjoy fresh mountain air by our outdoor fire pit. Be amazed by one-of-a-kind views of the surrounding lakes and mountains of Western Maine. Stand in awe of a setting sun as it slips behind Mt Washington and the Presidential Mtn Range. For outdoor enthusiasts, ski in/out for a truly unique mountain top experience.
Our North Ridge Yurt can only be described as a unique outdoor wilderness experience.
Soak in the year-round views, hike or snowshoe the Pleasant Mountain trail network from the back door, pick blueberries, ski or snowboard Shawnee Peak or just sit back and watch for the many species of wildlife that frequent the mountain. The North Ridge Yurt is a unique four-season experience sitting trail-side on Sunset Blvd.
Our yurt sleeps 4 in two bunk beds . Basic kitchen amenities are provided, including dishes and utensils, a propane grill, a 2-burner camp stove and washing water.
The yurt is naturally lit during the day and battery powered lamps are provided for the evening hours. A propane fireplace will keep you warm during the cooler evenings. Raised fire pits and firewood are ready to use as well as a natural outhouse.
We recommend that our guests access the property via their own means - hike-in during the spring, summer and fall months and ski-in during the winter! It's about an hour hike from the parking lot or you can take the chairlift up in the winter.
Extra guests are $10 per head and must bring their own sleeping mattress.
The daily price includes the Maine State Lodging tax of 9%
Lake Access and swim platform on Moose Pond in the summertime with canoes provided!
In the winter, enjoy your meals at one of Shawnee Peak's lodges if you don't feel like cooking! Don't worry, we won't judge :)

Our North Ridge Yurt is a wonderful experience for outdoor enthusiasts. We encourage guests to enjoy everything our mountain top has to offer but we also ask that you be respectful of the surroundings.
We kindly ask that guests adhere to the following guidelines while staying with us:
1. NO parties or events.
2. NO smoking in or around the Yurt outside.
3. All guests are expected to take out what they take in.
4. Because guests need to take the chairlift to get to the top, we cannot allow check-in after 8.00p
5. Dogs are permitted in the summer season only. They must be behaved and on a leash.
The yurt is Leave-No-Trace, please respect the environment and property by leaving it as you found it.
