KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
DEPOSIT: If booking through Airbnb, there will be a $200 security deposit that will not be charged unless there is damage to the property or items are missing. If booking through TripAdvisor, a $200 security deposit will be charged upfront & then refunded if nothing is reported as missing or damaged.
You can also book through me via PayPal. Please inquire.
Booking is open! Opening day is May 19th, 2017. If booking more than 2 months in advance, all necessary information will be sent to the email you provide closer to the booking date. This avoids lost emails. The person renting the yurt must be 18 or older. No groups of minors are allowed without a representative adult present for the duration of the booking. Total number of occupancy is 9 adults. May be able to accommodate up to 11 - please inquire.
FEES & TAXES: There will be a standard cleaning fee of $60 added to each reservation. Taxes & website fees are additional. Taxes are compromised of a Utah Transient Room Tax of 4.25% and Utah Sales Tax of 7.95% totaling 12.20%.
CANCELLATIONS: There will be a 50% refund issued up until 1 week prior to arrival, minus website fees. Because we are a reservation destination based yurt, no refunds will be made with less than 7 days notice. If a cancellation is due to severe weather, a full or partial refund will be issued.
ROAD CONDITIONS: ***Please note*** if it rains on the North Fork road, it may be impossible to reach the yurt due to the mud. The clay in the road will stop even 4X4 and off road vehicles. The good news is that typically, within 5-6 hours after a storm is finished, the roads dry up enough to travel on them. If you are scheduled to rent the yurt and it rains, wait it out and try in a few hours. If it does not stop raining and you are unable to make it to the yurt, we will be happy to rebook your stay for another available time or issue a refund. The amount paid will be used as credit towards this re-booking. Rainstorms are few and far between here in Southern Utah, but we want our guests to be safe and know the potential dangers of the rain in case it comes during your stay.

WAIVER: Each person staying at the yurt is required to read, sign & submit the Release of Liability & Acknowledgment of Risks Agreement to Zion Backcountry Yurts. Guests will be sent a copy of this waiver through their email after booking. Parents or Gaurdians of minors (under 18 years of age) must sign for underaged children. Please provide email addresses of members in your group who aren't in the same household, so they can read and sign.
LINENS: Linens & towels are optional. If you would like to bring your own sleeping bags, sheets, blankets, etc., feel free to do so! If you would like linens, please let us know how many people per bed. We have 4 double beds & 3 single beds (one being a trundle.)
RESPONSIBILITY: You are responsible for your own actions and the safety of those in your party or who join you while at the yurt site. Each member staying at the yurt is required to read and sign the Release of Liability and Acknowledgment of Risks Agreement before entrance to the property.
CHECK IN/CHECK OUT: Early check in time is 4:00 PM and check out time is 11:00 AM unless prior arrangements have been made. We understand situations don't always go as planned, therefore we can be flexible with these times, especially if weather related.
PETS: We love our furry, well-behaved friends; but please inquire first!
YURT ETIQUETTE: This simply means treating the living space as if it were your grandmother's house. If you use dishes, wash them, & put any trash in the trash bins, make sure the gas is turned off and extinguish any fire in the stove, etc. Respect the building and the location.
SMOKING: No smoking is allowed inside the yurt or in close proximity to the yurt or combustible vegetation. This is in compliance with the regulations and guidelines of the Utah Fire Department.
FOOD: You will need to pack in your own food and beverages and pack out what you don’t consume. Please do not leave perishable food or liquid at the yurt site as this invites critters and disease into the yurt.
WATER: Our water source is provided from a well, & can be used for cooking if boiled. There is no water hooked up to the yurt, however, we do provide a flushing toilet & hot water for showers in a separate bathhouse. There is also an outdoor sink for doing dishes. We provide (2) 5-gallon Primo water jugs inside the yurt for cooking and drinking purposes. If you think you will consume more than 10 gallons of water, it is recommended that guests bring additional gallons.
