Ever hear of a yurt? Well it’s kind of like a very fancy tent that was used by nomads in Central Asia. Recently here in the West they’ve been built for nature lovers that would like a place to stay. Somewhere a cross between the amenities of a log cabin and a tent. They can also be made wheelchair accessible as can be seen by this one in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The front door to the yurt has little to no threshold which makes them wheelchair friendly to get in and out of. This particular yurt sits on the side of a hill with a deck built around it. Along with a wheelchair ramp attached.

On the inside this yurt is pretty fancy with all the amenities and utilities of an on the grid home. Though it’s not fully wheelchair accessible there is plenty of space and hardwood floors.
