Questions & Policies

To book a yurt, visit the reservations page and start a search for the dates you wish to stay.  All available yurts will display. You can then use the booking form to book any of the available yurts.

If you want to see more details about each yurt before booking, just click the box to get more information, see photos and book.

If you need help booking, can’t find an available date or have any questions, please feel free to call or text us at 512-333-2202, text or email

You can click here to see a copy of our Rental Agreement.

Note this document may change slightly from time to time. We try to keep it updated on our website. However, the agreement signed when booking is always the correct version.  

Reservations that are canceled more than 30 days prior to the arrival date will be fully refunded.

Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay or that are made within 30 days of the arrival date, forfeit all payments made, including taxes.

However, for cancellations made less than 30-days prior to arrival, we will do our best to rebook your dates with another guest. If we are successful in rebooking, your canceled booking may be used as a credit towards a future reservation of equal or greater value.

No, we are an adults-only property. We have found that our property is best suited for a quiet, adults-only atmosphere and is not appropriate for kids. We recommend checking with 7A Ranch Resort in Wimberley for fabulous kid-friendly accomodations!

Unfortunately, pets are not allowed on The Yurtopian property. 

 
Guests who require a service animal must contact us prior to arrival for details on how we can accommodate your
needs.
 
 
Emotional Support Animals do not qualify as service animals and are not allowed on The Yurtopian property.
 
Service animals may not be left unattended in the yurt or on the property at any time. Leaving service animals unattended and/or
bringing unauthorized pets or service animals onto The Yurtopian property will result in a $250 fee charged to the credit card
on file with respect to the relevant booking (regardless of the designation of ownership / user of such card) or otherwise
payable by the relevant guest.
 
Guests are liable for all damages their service animal, pet, or emotional support animal causes to property or another person while located on The Yurtopian property.
 
We have a great relationship with Wildflower Animal Boarding in Driftwood, if you’d like to board your pet nearby during your stay.
This answer is . . . sometimes. We allow single night bookings most weekdays (Sunday – Thursday nights), with the exception of holidays. We also offer single night bookings as “sandwich bookings” when there’s only a single night available on our calendar, sandwiched between two other longer bookings. This can often fall on a Friday or Saturday night. If you’d like some help looking at our calendar for single night openings on a weekend night, give us a call (512-333-2202) or email us (stay@theyurtopian.com).

We send out an email approximately 10 days before your arrival date to give access to our digital guidebook and pre-checkin instructions. This allows us to offer a “contactless” check in and the guidebook will include all kinds of great info such as what to pack, how to turn on your hot tub, and how to find your yurt.

If you’d like to plan ahead before you’ve received that email, email us at stay@theyurtopian.com, and we can send it to you early!

We understand!  Many people have this problem, but just know that all the amenities are the same and the differences between the yurts aren’t too significant. Yurts are decorated in different colors, some have more shade, some are better for low-clearance vehicles and some are closer to the creek (In Dripping Springs), but no matter which yurt you choose, we know you’ll have an amazing time! We’ve had many guests return to visit the same yurt, and others who want to try out something new.   

If you need help choosing, just give us a call and we will be glad to help you. But first, do an availability search to see what is available for the dates you want to visit. 

Yes! Our yurts have a minisplit AC/Heater that keeps the space cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We have little heaters in the bathroom that help “take the edge off” the cold in the bathroom in the winter time. We have hot water in the showers.

The Yurts are separated by 300+ feet of woods. When hanging out in the private zone in front of the yurt (hot tub, fire pit, kitchen/bathroom) you are totally secluded from the other yurts. You can sometimes see each other from the rooftop decks, but only when you’re standing up and trying to wave at your neighbor across the way.

All of our guests have a private hot tub/plunge pool, but no river access. In Wimberley, it’s a short walk down Shade Road to CR 1492 to the low water bridge at 7A Ranch Resort. 7A offers paid parking/day passes to guests who would like to hang out at their riverfront. They have kayak and SUP rentals, deep and shallow water access.
In Dripping Springs, all yurts have access to the wet weather creek walking path. When we’re not in a drought, there’s great swimming and fishing in the Dripping Springs waterfront. Please check with our office before making plans to swim. As of summer 2023, we’re still in drought conditions in central Texas and our waterfront is too low to swim. However, it’s still a nice place to hike around and watch the birds and other wildlife!

The number one activity at our yurts seems to be resting and relaxing! We specialize in the art of just sitting, listening to the birds, watching for shooting stars, or napping in a hammock.

For guests who like to hike, in Wimberley there is a nice hill country walk down our road to the low water bridge on River Road to feed the ducks and put your feet in the water. There are hiking trails around Blue Hole Park and Old Baldy in Wimberley.

In Dripping Springs we have a walking path across two foot bridges on our property around our wet-weather creek, and Pedernales Falls State Park is just down the road.

Many of our guests spend time at the restaurants, bars, wineries, breweries and shops around Wimberley and Dripping Springs. There’s live music at Longleaf Bar, Vista Brewery, 12 Fox Beer, and The Devil’s Backbone Tavern. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to check out many of our favorite local spots!

All of our yurts have a pool that can either be a hot tub or plunge pool, depending on the season. There’s a switch for jets only vs. heater + jets.

Yes, we recommend bringing your food if you plan to eat at your yurt.  Each yurt has a gas grill, a hot plate, and basic cooking supplies: a skillet, a pot, grill utensils, cooking utensils, kitchen knife, cutting board, wine bottle opener, scissors, collandor, plates and bowls for 2 people, water kettle, and coffee (pour-over style). We have an under-counter refrigerator and sink in the outside kitchen as well. We do not have a microwave or oven for baking. 

We recommend bringing all food, spices, oils and vinegars, baggies, foil and/or tupperware for leftovers, + salt & pepper. We provide paper towels, dish soap, and a kitchen towel. There are many coffee shops, restaurants & bars in both Wimberley and Dripping, so check out our Things To Do page if you prefer to go out to eat! 

Wimberley and Dripping Springs often have a “burn ban” on, so we’ve opted for gas fire pits and gas grills at all of our yurts. You can turn them off and on with the flip of the switch, and they’re perfect for grilling, atmosphere + s’mores!

Yes, people rave about our mattress and sheets! You can buy a mattress like the ones at the yurts at Leesa Mattress.  We have the “Original” model in a king-size.
