Wanna Rent a Yurt For Your Next Shoot? Here Are 8 Fabulous Spaces
In terms of photo and film shoots, there’s always the challenge of finding a spot that is going to make your audience feel thrilled and surprised. Rent a yurt! It’s equal parts groovy and practical, unique and efficient; they’re also inevitably secluded and quiet. Check out eight yurts that are perfect for your next big shoot.
1. Lose yourself at the rustic Cazador Ranch in Los Angeles, CA
In LA, you’ll find a deceptively remote venue hosting a fully-furnished yurt, a barn, and a farmhouse. The modest layout of the grounds spans half an acre. The vibe is cozy and comfortable, with seating tucked into corners or clustered for conversation. There is also a chicken on the premises. As with many rustic spaces, remember to leave nothing behind.
2. Enjoy splendid sights at a wine country ranch in Paso Robles, CA
In Paso Robles, CA, find 30 acres of resort-style views and amenities perfect for your shoot. Picturesque views and diverse structures — yurts, barns, and Airstream trailers — create a unique backdrop. There’s the large indoor/outdoor barn, as well as three 20’ tipis/yurts. They’re fully furnished and equipped with water and power. Outdoor tennis courts and indoor billiards tables give the venue a country club feel. End the day lounging by the pool or with team at a single, family-style table that accommodates up to 40.
3. Get physical in a mega yurt studio in Sterling, VA
Rent a yurt studio just outside of DC that features a hardwood floor ideal for yoga or dance instruction. If you’re in need of extra room, consider also renting the on-site brickhouse, as well, and enjoy a catered lunch in the garden. And, unlike any other place in the Greater DC metro area, this venue has friendly chickens on site!
4. Go off the grid at a modern yurt in Kelly, WY
This Jackson Hole modern yurt is a gorgeous conundrum, as it’s perfect as an escape! It’s the ultimate in “roughing it” in that it’s off the grid and solar-powered; however, it’s also carefully, stylishly decorated indoors and out (to include indoor/outdoor dining and lounge options), with spectacular views of Teton National Park. The main yurt is flanked by a guest tent and meditation tent, ideal for reaching the pinnacle in creative inspiration.
5. Get out and play in a Western-inspired yurt Yucca Valley, CA
There’s no shortage of eye candy in this private spot between Pioneertown and Joshua Tree National Park. Rent a yurt in the middle of nowhere for a fantastic shoot! Then head over to Pioneertown to take advantage of the Old West setting. On the premises are also adult-sized swings, a hot tub, and ample desert landscape.
6. Feel at home in a spacious yurt in Agoura Hills, CA
For a low-key, affable refuge, rent a yurt in the mountains of Malibu on the private property of a sprawling home with mountain views. The house hosts an open concept kitchen, as well as a comfortable indoor/outdoor seating area with a built-in bar area, all on an expansive lawn. Spend creative think-tank time in the yurt and take in the splendid views.
7. Go stargazing at a yurt on a five-acre desert property in Joshua Tree, CA
A film or photo shoot has different requirements than a meeting or event: quiet, privacy, incredible light, and character are crucial to success! This yurt-featured venue is surrounded by acres of desert, untouched by city noise or lights. With that in mind, it is absolutely required that your photo or film shoot extends into evening hours, so you may capture and enjoy a gorgeous, celestial show. Rent a furnished yurt that’s located on top of a mesa. To say that the views are spectacular is an understatement: they are, in fact, surreal, with the ability to add a bit of magic to your film project.
8. Enjoy a yurt on a 40-acre high desert land in Yucca Valley, CA
Rent a simple, bohemian yurt with unique comforts of home! It’s rustic and remote but also a deeply hospitable environment, offering costumes and games as part of the rental. For practicality, there is a fire pit and lounge seating, as well as an outdoor shower and bath.
