It was unique and beautiful. We stayed in Yurt 8 - Gorge view it had the best view! The walk up the stairs back and forth to the bathhouse was worth it! Next time I stay here I would be more prepared to cookout (paper plates, grilling tools, etc) and will stay in the spring or fall. Mid July with... More

I was not impressed at all. The key was supposed to be in the box. My dad checked the box and it was not there. He was insulted that they did not believe him. My mom had to check after him before they would come around the corner and see for themselves. Finally they did, and the key was not... More

First camping in a yurt experience for our family. This place was magical for us. We have 2 children ages 6 and 12. They both brought their electronics and not once were they touched during our 2 days stay. They were too busy exploring, fishing, and playing. Plenty of room in the yurt for a family of 4.

You can't really call it camping even though you are staying in a "semi-permanent tent like dwelling". It's not camping when you sleep in a queen size bed with clean sheets but it's like camping because you aren't at home or in a hotel room. It's not like camping because you have a coffee maker and a refrigerator but it... More

We took a road trip to NC & stayed in the yurts! It was fun...& different. We went in August & during the day with the heat beating onto the yurt all day, we couldn't even stay inside for more than a few minutes. We found plenty of fun stuff to do in the area. They cool off well at... More

This was our third trip and everything was completely to our expectations. Jenia and I had her parents here fro Moscow, Russia and the experience was completely to our needs. We discovered the Yurt Village by "flying" over it on an earlier Canopy Tour...this is the most relaxing was to enjoy nature's resources. These units are like wigwam/tent/cabin with a... More

We stayed here because we were going to be hiking in the National Park. If you're looking for something super close to Great Smokey Mt., this isn't it. With that said, I would ABSOLUTELY stay here again. The yurt was clean and had a comfy queen sized bed, a futon, a coffee maker, and a fridge inside. The bathrooms weren't... More

I love backpacking, but it's nice to stay in a hybrid Yurt! We didn't do Whitewater Rafting, but simply wanted to stay at the Yurt during an Asheville excursion. It was beautiful and remote, we followed the directions given, so it was pretty easy to find, but arrive before sunset! We had a lovely cabin, the one overlooking a waterfall... More

Just returned from a girls’ trip to Falling Waters resort. We are not at all the camping type, so this “glamping” experience was right up our alley. The images of the yurts are pretty accurate, but we could not see the shared bathroom facilities before arrival. I was definitely skeptical (shared bathroom in the woods has “gross” written all over... More

We stayed here with a group of 19, and we had a great time! It wasn't the easiest place to find, but we figured it out. I would definitely recommend more signs. The yurts were very nice and had everything that we needed. They had a nice shelter that we used for our group gathering time, and the bathrooms were... More
