Are you a Yurt-aholic? If so, you probably live West of the Rockies or, possibly, in Mongolia. The symptoms of the affliction are obvious. The photo above sets you into a shivered fantasy of escape, dreaming of how to bankroll staying in that circular canvas-y utopia forever. Those not afflicted look at the above and think, “Wow, does that thing have heat? How thin are the walls? Where’s the front door? The bathroom?”

For those now jonesing to know, the above is the new “Adventure” yurt at El Capitan Canyon 20 miles north of Santa Barbara.

Yurtaholics can also get their fixes at the following places:

    Harmony Hill Lodging and Retreat Center has 2 treehouse yurts, all with bathrooms and kitchens, tucked in the woods on the western edge of the Catskills in central New York. couples love the romantic getaway, like camping in luxury; individuals love the chance to be alone in nature with all the comforts of home.
