There are a whopping 19 beautiful yurts in Texas for you to choose from and luckily for you, I’ve rounded them all up here for you.

From treehouse yurts to yurts with hot tubs, here are 19 amazing yurts in Texas you need to stay at!

1. Green Acres Yurts

Price per night: From $99 for 2 people

Location: Elgin, nr Austin

You won’t find many yurts as stylish as those at Green Acres Yurts.

Beautifully designed with handpicked finds, it’s clear to see that a lot of love has gone into the two yurts.

They both comprise a queen-size bed, organic bedding, a writers desk, and lounge area, as well as heaters and air-conditioning.

You’ll also enjoy complimentary coffee, gourmet s’mores, and farm-fresh eggs to get your stay off to a great start!

However, if these yurts somehow haven’t persuaded you, the site is also home to a tiny house, airstream, and a luxury lodge. Talk about choice!

What guests say: “This place is HEAVEN. I came here for a spiritual retreat to connect with the earth and let me tell you what… this place delivered. From doing yoga on the yurt’s porch to taking strolls with my dog to laying on the grass beside the fire pit looking at the stars, this place was exactly what I needed!”

2. Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine Yurt

If you’re a lover of lakes, Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine Yurt will be one of the best yurts in Texas for you.

Booking a stay here will soon see you sleeping lakeside on a private peninsula feeling like you’ve got the whole world to yourselves.

Talk about romantic! Spend your days fishing, swimming, and kayaking, before toasting marshmallows by the fire pit at sunset, and eventually cuddling up together in your cozy queen-size bed.

Or, if the weather’s not on your side, there are a bunch of board games ready for you to dive into!

What guests say: “We really enjoyed it. The yurt was comfortable and well-appointed. The bathroom was also very nice – not like roughing it at all. Cornhole, a fire pit, and easy access to put in our kayaks all added to the experience. The chorus of songbirds in the morning was lovely. The hosts were welcoming.”

3. Big Bend Luxury Yurts

Yep, that’s right, the entrance to Big Bend is just yards away! You can’t get much closer than this.

What guests say: “WOW! Our two-night stay at The Local Chapter was incredible.  The yurts are AMAZING… so beautifully appointed with wonderful creature-comforts that make you feel like you are in the lap of luxury, and yet, you’re on a private little mesa with an unobstructed view of the vast beauty that is Big Bend National Park.”

4. El Cosmico Yurt

El Cosmico is home to one of my all-time favorite yurts in Texas, and from the photo above, I’m sure you’re not wondering why!

And just outside you’ll find your full private bathroom with a rain shower.

I haven’t seen many yurts as impressive as Yurt in the Trees, and trust me when I say I’ve seen a lot of yurts in my time!

Nestled between live oaks on an elevated deck overlooking a beautiful Hill Country creek-wrought canyon, you’ll find this wonderful yurt.

Step inside and you’ll discover cedar-planked flooring, a comfy queen-size bed, a TV and Wi-Fi, a full bathroom with a tub, a coffee bar, and a dome window ideal for stargazing. Phew, that’s a lot!

Basically, if you couldn’t already tell by now it’s pretty beautiful and seriously well-equipped.

What guests say: “It was the perfect place to relax. I enjoyed getting to explore the grounds and spend some time around the friendly animals. Reading on the deck and the swings was very peaceful. The large tub and spacious bathroom made for a nice spa vibe. There are lots of cool breweries and restaurants in the area too.”

If the photo above doesn’t immediately make you want to rush to book a stay in Lofthaven Yurt then I don’t know what will.

I mean, how many people can say they’ve slept in a floating yurt in the trees?

This aerial yurt is built around the trunk of an old-growth cypress tree, alongside a separate larger bathhouse and kitchenette that is connected to the bedroom by a forty-foot suspension bridge.

The bathhouse has a one-of-a-kind waterfall tub that is basically the stuff of dreams. 

And as if the accommodation wasn’t enough, you can even zip line among the trees on-site, or relax in the lakeside pool!

What guests say: “Lofthaven is unbelievable. It’s very secluded in the woods where you cannot be seen by anyone. It’s connected to the cliffside by a fifty-foot swing bridge that goes to a bathhouse that has a small kitchen, a nice bathroom, and a rock waterfall that goes into a spa. Very, very unique.” 

8. The Reserve at Green Leaf Yurts

Price per night: From $248 for 2 people

Loc1ation: Bastrop, nr Austin

Nestled in the outskirts of Austin, The Reserve at Green Leaf is just close enough for an urban adventure but far enough away for a relaxing rural retreat.

The site is home to four uniquely crafted yurts that are very similar but with subtle differences that set them apart.

However, their beautiful interiors aren’t the only reason to stay here.

All the yurts are set against a stunning backdrop with plenty of natural spaces for you to unwind, such as the fire pit, hot tub, and spots for you to kayak and hike.

What guests say: “Our first yurt stay at The Reserve won’t be our last! Stylish and comfortable, the yurts are a quiet retreat in the woods that far exceed expectations. If you’re looking for a restful getaway, this is it!”

9. Mill Creek Ranch Resort Yurt

Full of charm and character, Mill Creek Ranch Resort Yurt is the perfect retreat from the world, but with the added benefit of lots of great on-site amenities.

If you want alone time with your loved one, you can hunker down in your cozy yurt and put a movie on or stargaze through the skylight.

Price per night: From $225 for 4 people

Location: Wimberley, nr Austin

The Cedars Ranch Yurt is one of the most spacious yurts I’ve ever seen, so it’s no surprise that it’s earned its place on this list of the best yurts in Texas.

Nestled among twenty acres of secluded live oak and cedar trees, the yurt is an ideal retreat for couples or small families.

The yurt is beautifully appointed with all the modern amenities you’d expect from a holiday home so you’ll be left wanting for nothing.

Some personal highlights include the full bath with a luxurious slipper tub, the restful library area, and the spacious decking outside.

What guests say: “The eco-yurt was really lovely – the pictures didn’t do it justice! Marilyn greeted us with cookies, low-carb muffins (after asking about dietary restrictions), and a bottle of wine. The place was comfortable even in the scorching Texas summer, and we enjoyed several meals out on the deck watching the hummingbirds.”

11. Yurtopia Yurts

Yurtopia is home to an amazing nine yurts split into two locations: the Remote Hilltop Yurts (that enjoy maximum privacy) and the Riverbluff Community Yurts (that are designed to give that “living well in community” feeling).

So no matter whether you want to feel isolated or connected, Yurtopia has a yurt for you!

All the yurts are fully climate controlled and benefit from a king-size bed and their own private decking with all sorts of helpful amenities.

Top tip: book a Remote Hilltop Yurt if you want the added luxury of your own private hot tub all to yourself!

Because who wants to share, right? 

What guests say: “You guys have put an incredible amount of energy and thought into the venture and it shows in all the details. The yurt was so comfortable and the surrounding ‘campground’ so well-appointed that relaxation was guaranteed. Our afternoon/evening ritual: nap, cards with happy hour, grilled dinner, spa, fire with dessert. We went home relaxed and revitalized…”

12. Yurt with Hilltop Views

Price per night: From $158 for 2 people

If you’re looking for great views, the aptly-named Yurt with Hilltop Views is one of the best yurts in Texas for you!

I mean who can say no to unzipping their yurt to that view in the morning?

However, there are so many more reasons to book a stay here on top of the amazing views.

From the private hot tub and fire pit to the cozy queen-size bed to the complimentary toiletries, there’s nothing not to love about this yurt.

And if you want to make your stay extra special, why not pay a little extra for on-site artisan breakfasts? Delicious!

What guests say: “What incredible hosts Karen and Mike are! We so enjoyed our chats with them! The artisan breakfast was phenomenal and if we could’ve taken the shower and view home, we would have. Such thoughtful touches everywhere and extremely clean! We will be back!”

13. Dallas Yurt Oasis

Price per night: From $83 for 3 people

Location: Dallas

Dallas Yurt Oasis really is an oasis.

The air-conditioned and heated yurt is 200 square feet and houses all the amenities you could need, including a full-size loft bed, twin-size futon, and kitchenette.

And the good thing is you don’t have to walk far for the bathroom either as your composting toilet and outdoor shower are just steps away.

Outside you’ll also find a gas grill, pool, trampoline, and patio.

So while the yurt is oh-so-cozy, I’d recommend spending most of your time outside, soaking up the fresh air!

What guests say: “The pool was a hit! We enjoyed the cool down from the sun! The yurt was so cool, such a new experience! Everything was very clean, and the host had great communication! Thanks again!”

14. Lucky Arrow Retreat Yurts

Price per night: From $190 for 2 people

Location: Dripping Springs, nr Austin

If you love woodland and beautiful accommodation, Lucky Arrow Retreat Yurts might just be one of the best yurts in Texas for you!

Their ten heated and air-conditioned yurts comprise a queen-size bed, a coffee maker, a record player, and a stargazing dome window, with a separate Bath House just around the corner.

However, if you fancy treating yourself to a bit of added luxury, you can opt for a cabin instead of a yurt.

And why shouldn’t you feel like a queen for the night? You deserve it!

What guests say: “The yurt is big and beautifully designed. The A/C worked well, the record player had some great albums, and the map and water were super helpful. The design of the place is really gorgeous. They have a live band playing next to the pool and it was a dream!”

15. The Driftwoods Yurt

Price per night: From $85 for 4 people

Location: Driftwood, nr Austin

For one of the best yurts in Texas for families, book a stay in the surprisingly spacious The Driftwoods Yurt.

This unique yurt is set amid a colorful community of bright, fun, and stylish vacation homes located on five remote acres in Driftwood.

This means there’s a great entertainment area with shared outdoor kitchen space, a large-screen TV, seating areas, hammocks, a fire pit, and so much more!

However, if you just want to retreat to your yurt with its plush king-size bed, two twin beds, dining and living area, and a kitchenette, there are certainly worse places to do that.

What guests say: “This was our first time staying in a yurt and it was sooooo awesome! It was decorated super cool and very clean! We were worried about the temperature, but the AC inside made it the perfect temp! Also loved that we had our own private bathroom. And the outdoor kitchen and TV area were awesome!”

16. El Paso Yurt

Switch off your phones and get ready to relax! From the stargazing window to the queen-size bed to the well-equipped kitchenette, this 314 square foot yurt houses everything you could need.

In fact, it even has Wi-Fi. Maybe it’s not so off-grid after all!

What guests say: “The perfect place to stay close to the park. First, the yurt is great, comfortable, and quiet. The cooking space is nicely put up, and there’s a big living room space for eating. Second, it’s really convenient to be so close to Hueco without being with a big crowd. And to finish, it’s so romantic to be able to see the stars at night inside the yurt!”

17. Wildflower Yurts

Wildflower Yurts is home to three unique bohemian yurts that all benefit from the comforts of home, including air conditioning, electricity, showers, and toilets.

You’ll be surprised by how quickly the hours go as you lie back on the hammock!

And if you want to get the full nature experience, why not head out to your private outdoor shower tucked away in the trees?

It’s the perfect spot to soak up the sunrise and sunset views of farm country.

What guests say: “We LOVED this place! We only stayed one night. We both wished we could have stayed a full weekend. BBQ pits, peaceful outdoor seating/lounge area, gorgeous sunrise view, and so much more! You DEFINITELY should book this place!”

18. Abilene State Park Yurts

For one of the cheapest yurts in Texas, book a stay at Abilene State Park Yurts.

These five-person yurts are a great budget-friendly alternative for families looking to save their cents.

Their interiors are simple but they still benefit from a bunk bed, a fold-out sofa, a microwave and refrigerator, electricity, and lighting.

Step outside the yurt and you’ll also find a picnic table, outdoor grill, and a restroom with showers nearby.

Further afield, the state park has everything from a swimming pool to fishing ponds to canoes and kayaks, and pretty much everything in-between.

You certainly won’t get bored here!

What guests say: “The yurt came with a sleeping room for five, mini-fridge, microwave, and space-heater for the colder weather. The mini-fridge allowed us to bring ready-made meals without worrying about lugging a big ice chest. A very neat feature of the yurt is the bubble or skylight that allows you to see the stars at night from inside. Both our girls thought the yurt was wonderful.”

19. Treehouse Yurt

Price per night: From $228 for 2 people or $250 for 4 people

Inside you’ll find a king-size bed, queen sofa bed, and a double futon, and just a couple of steps from the back door you’ll discover a gorgeous two-person outdoor tub.
