    My friend found this while she was looking for apartments:
    Yurt
    I don't think I have ever heard of a Yurt before. They look like they could be a fun weekend/ lake getaway, but I could never live there.

    I believe it is a European word. There are plenty of these camps with hiking (or biking) distance of each other. Actually, I believe they are for for winter skiing.

    It looks like it would be fun to hike to, like a luxury tent.

    They have Yurt Like Structures (tm) on St John, USVI.

    They're pretty awesome and if it wasn't for the fact that I was on a boat, they would have been a nice place to stay.

    I kind of feel like if I lived in one, the Smurfs would be my next door neighbors
