Stay in One of our Magical yurts

Small Mongolian Yurts

What’s a yurt (or ger)?
A yurt or ger is the home of the Mongolian nomads. Its history dates back thousands of years and yurts are still widely in use year round across Mongolia. Our beautiful yurts are made using mostly natural products, hand crafted by a Mongolian family on a principle of fair trade. Gers are sustainable, leaving no footprint and comprise organic material like felt insulation and horse hair ropes. - From Groovy Yurts website

"We Can't Wait to Come Back."

Between guided morning meditation, great coffee and breakfast, private hot tubs overlooking the Atlantic, recommendations for stunning local hikes from Barbara, the location and the view, we couldn't have imagined a better experience in Cape Breton.

"Highly Recommend Sunrise & Sunsets."

We absolutely loved our time here. If I could offer better than 5 stars I would. The food was outstanding and the same can be said of ALL staff. We stayed in one of the yurts and explored the property, which was also great. I highly recommend sunrise and sunsets.

"Lulled Asleep by the Sounds of the Waves! "

Staying in a yurt with an ocean view was a fun and unique experience - how nice to watch the moon rise over the ocean and be lulled asleep by the sounds of the waves! The gourmet restaurant on site was a pleasant surprise.
