Why you should stay: From air conditioning to alpacas, this yurt really has it all.

  • Location: Geneva
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $80/night

This spacious yurt easily redefines luxury camping. You don’t often get to kick back and relax under vaulted ceilings in the heat of summer in a tent, but you can here since this great yurt has air conditioning. You even get a private full bathroom and shower — the true definition of glamorous camping.

Situated on a super unique property, your stay at Danville can be equal parts relaxation and adventure. Be sure to visit the resident alpacas or neighboring goats. For an added fee, you can book a horseback ride or bring your hiking boots or running shoes to take a tour on your own. The property is also next to a 500-acre park managed by Seminole County if you want more open space to explore. Or if you’re fine relaxing at camp, fire up the grill and fire pit and enjoy a laid-back afternoon on the porch.

“Very unique! We enjoyed our stay at the Yurt, love the Alpacas and the baby goats. My daughter loved driving the golf cart around the property, definitely worth visiting.”
