As ‘Glamping’ Grows in Popularity, Loon Lake Lodge Adds More Yurts

Adventure travelers today are looking for new ways to escape on vacation to recharge, unwind, decompress and focus on family, fun and good friends. And while on their “Escapation™,” many are seeking out new “glamping” opportunities such as staying in a Yurt at in the gorgeous Oregon Coast Range at Loon Lake Lodge and RV Resort in Reedsport.

The Yurts at Loon Lake Lodge are one of the resorts most popular lodging options, and because of the increased popularity of “glamping,” the lodge has added four brand new fully-furnished Yurts for the summer season.

The Yurts at Loon Lake Lodge in the Oregon Coast Range are an affordable “glamping” option, with the fun of camping, but not as rustic as a tent. Each yurt is furnished with a trundle bed for your daytime or nighttime enjoyment and it can be made up as a sofa, two twins or pushed together to sleep side-by-side and a twin bunk bed. All Yurts include a counter top refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and bed linens. (PRNewsfoto/Loon Lake Lodge and RV Resort)

Loon Lake’s Yurts are great for camping, but are not as rustic as tents. They are furnished with a trundle bed that can be made up as a sofa, two twins pushed together to sleep side-by-side or as a twin bunk bed. Each of the new Yurts sleeps four and includes a countertop refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and bed linens.

The “yurt” style dwelling has been known as a sturdy, comfortable shelter used by Central Asian nomads for centuries. The new Yurts at Loon Lake Lodge offer state-of-the-art structural integrity and design while maintaining a close link to the ancient history of the Yurt. With an appealing combination of comfort and affordability, Yurts are the choice of vacationers looking to have fun in the Oregon Coast Range and stay in a budget.

Another aspect of Loon Lake’s new Yurts that makes them attractive to guests is that they’re eco-friendly. For as long as Yurts have been in existence, they’ve been known for the minimum impacts they place on the land, and are considered a practical yet sustainable camping option. With modern construction based on ancient designs, these Yurts allow environmentally conscious guests to experience the natural beauty of the Oregon Coast Range while remaining true to their green lifestyles.

At Loon Lake Lodge, you begin each day looking out at Oregon’s dramatic coastal mountains, which block winds coming off the Pacific Ocean to provide smooth water for recreation such as boating and fishing on the glistening lake. Breakfast cooked in Loon Lake Lodge’s many cabins, large Waterfront House, RV sites or outdoors at the tent camping spaces or Yurts always tastes better when the scent of fresh Douglas Firs mixes with a generous plate of your favorite morning meal. Then choose to hike the area, sunbathe at the sandy, protected beach or rent a personal watercraft, ski boat, stand-up Paddle Board or kayak at the on-site Loon Lake Marina & Watersports. A day trip to the Oregon Dunes National Recreational Area near Reedsport is easy.

After pulling in a nice trout, or enjoying hours of thrills speeding across the water, you’ll meet up with your favorite people and build camaraderie around the campfire as the day’s catch becomes dinner. But since you are on vacation, you may choose to let someone else do the cooking by enjoying a meal at the deli, located inside the Lodge’s main building. As your group or family sits on the large deck overlooking the lake, you’ll marvel at the beauty of the mountains, breathe the rich, fresh air, and talk about everything you’ve experienced on this first day of Escapation™. Your great day will finish with a cone of fresh ice cream from the deli…a perfect way to wind down, and relax.
