The Ellis is named after the local Ellis River. It is tucked in a stand of evergreens within a 128 acre parcel. Chandler Brook runs through the majority of the above mentioned parcel and meanders through a large marshland. The yurt has a locking front and side door. Access to the front door is via a gentle inclined path. The side door gives access to the trash bin. This yurt is one of three located within a short walk to the bathhouse. The interior of the rustic/farmhouse style bathhouse feels warm and inviting. Stained concrete floors are throughout and guests will enjoy the radiant heat on their bare feet when getting out of the shower. The bathhouse has large rustic tub sinks for washing dishes and filling the water jug provided in each yurt. It houses a ladies’ and gent’s side, each with 2 private hot showers and 2 toilet stalls. There is a handicap accessible toilet stall available in both bathrooms. 

Inside the yurt you will find a kitchenette complete with a draining sink, Stanley insulated water jug, propane camp cook stove, enameled dinnerware set, Stanley cookware and coffee French press, silverware, and serving utensils. It is fully furnished with a bar table, 6 barstools, couch, 2 arm chairs, coffee table, and a timber frame loft area! The loft area has a lower queen bed and an upper queen bed. *Note* bedding is not provided. Up to two dogs are welcomed with a pet fee of $20/night per dog. Doggy bags are provided for pet clean up and are located at the front door. Ample hooks are placed throughout the yurt for hanging jackets and drying wet gloves and hats near the fire. The yurt is equipped with a small solar system that powers the 12v LED lights and 4 USB outlets for charging phones, laptops, and iPads. *Note* guests should bring any adapters needed to plug into USB ports. A guest binder inside offers instructions for the solar power, stoves, a site map, and Bethel area dining and activities guides. Outside, 4 adirondack chairs are placed under strings of lights. Solo stoves are included for outside fires year round. Outside, guests will find stacks of firewood and cast iron fireplace tools, and inside baskets of fire starter and kindling and lighters or matches. All included at no additional fee!

Guests will enjoy the surrounding forest and trails that Western Maine Yurts are continuing to expand. Our primary goal at Western Maine Yurts is to provide our guests with a four-season lodging option that is as connected to nature as possible. We aim to give a more luxurious and convenient camping/glamping experience where you can enjoy a hot shower after a day of outdoor activities. We hope you will pause to listen to the rain on the roof, birds singing in the morning, and the breeze blowing in the trees, while enjoying a cozy cuddle on the couch with a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee.
