Stretch out near scenic surroundings with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $75 toward a stay in a small or large yurt or camper cabin from Off Grid Getaways at Flagstaff Nordic Center.
Perched in the majestically picturesque Coconino National Forest, Off Grid Getaways beckons campers to recline in their choice of earth-friendly structures after exploring the abundant natural resources of the area. Small yurts ($25/night for up to 2 people), measuring 12 feet, are equipped with a wood stove and sleeping pads with enough room for up to four people or a gang of six backpacking dogs. Each additional person or dog costs $5 per night. That rate applies for additional guests for all three accommodation options. Larger parties can rent a 20-foot meadow-dwelling large yurt ($65/night for up to 2 people), complete with a double futon bed, a twin bunk bed, and a wood-burning stove for larger groups of up to eight campers. Camper cabins ($45/night for up to 2 people) boast sleeping accouterments for up to six people plus a wood-burning stove and propane lantern as well as easy access to 35 miles of trails ideal for biking and playing hide-and-seek with flying squirrels.
Adventurers can book structures in both the summer and winter seasons, taking advantage of distinctive activities such as cross-country skiing in the cooler months or hiking on more than 50 kilometers of trails alongside knowledgeable deer tour guides in the warmer seasons. All accommodations include firewood and a 5-gallon jug of water; electrical outlets and running water are not available. Campers must supply their own bedding, food, cooking supplies, and personal items.
