The 2 bedroom yurts are a wonderful way to experience "camping" for those who want to be in the "wilderness" yet have all the comforts of home. The 2 bedroom yurt is covered by canvas and is circular. (It feels like you are in a tent during a rainstorm). The surprize is the inside-these yurts are very well appointed with heat and air conditioning, a fully equipped kitchen-and gas BBQ, cable TV,free internet, phones, comfortable beds (1 queen, 1king, 1 pull out leather sofa)and a large shower/bathroom. There is a huge wooden deck attached to the yurt, perfect for enjoying the sounds, fresh air, and stars. There are many activities to do on property including a horse trail,pools, activity center, a large lake with fishing boats/poles rental and free paddle boats, The resort often holds a campfire at the marina(you bring your own ingredients). There are some fire pits throughout the area. This resort offers a variety of accomodation types but the yurt is wonderful!I told my girls it was like "princess camping" because there is nothing that you have to do except get your groceries and enjoy. (running hot water,flush toilets, full kitchen, gas BBQ etc ).
We ate the BBQ Exchange in town-a short drive but it is very busy,and closes early (8pm)
The horse trail is for inexperienced riders and quite boring but only $20-you must have covered shoes and wear a helmet(supplied)-good for young /inexperenced riders-we did a trail ride with a local rancher (Oakland Heights-owned by David Lamb- fantastic and well worth the $40 per person)
The resort is less than 10-15 mles from many Civil War sites.
You can drive the Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park
It is also close to the Luray Caverns.
It is less than 2 hours to Washington DC.
There is so much to do and enjoy in the area that you may want to make it your base and explore.
