We just got back from our river rafting trip at Nantahala National Park. These yurts were so cool. We will be back again and again. Loved the rustic ambiance. There's a waterfall near. The bath facilities are clean. The yurt itself, was immaculate.

Most people seem to stay in the Yurts but we opted to stay in the property’a “group lodge.” It was excellent for our purpose. I was with my wife and two kids and we were simply looking for a no-frills place to stay for the night. We had considered rent camping but wound up wanting to have a roof and shower for after a long day tubing. This place wound up being perfect for our simple needs. Don’t go expecting fancy room or lots of amenities. Rather, think along the lines more of a summer camp cabin for a fairly low cost. The room is fairly small but consists of bunks one both sides of the walls as well as a toilet, shower, and two sinks. The room is designed to sleep 8. You bring your own sheets and towels. The barn-style building that it is in has 5 similar rooms (one is handicap accessible) as well as a kitchen dining room that can also be reserved. There is a nice fire pit area just outside and the room is walking distance to the property’s ropes courses. So long as your expectations are in line with what this is aiming to provide, you should be satisfied with the stay.

Really enjoyed our family’s visit here. The surroundings are quiet and beautiful, and it’s a great way to camp/glamp. There are so many nice little touches here and there, like the lights that are motion-activated in the dark. While we stayed, we saw a turkey and a mama duck with her babies. We also heard lots of frogs. There were lots of daddy longlegs spiders and fireflies, too! We appreciated having a mini fridge in the yurt and laundry facilities in the restroom building. This is a wonderful place, but there were some downsides. The yurt and one of the restrooms had a strong mildew odor. All but one of the clasps on the window flaps were broken or unreachable, making it hard to open the windows to relieve the smell and let in fresh air. Our yurt sleeps four, but there was not enough surface area for the things that four people (parents and two kids) bring with them camping. The balcony table had only two chairs, anyway, so I would say this is really better suited for two people. The futon support bar seemed to be broken, leaving a dip in the cushion. The folks were nice, and we recommend this place for a refreshing getaway.

We stayed for one night on our way back home! What a treat! We were the only two couples in the park and just enjoyed ourselves immensely. Thank you for your little hideaway! I highly recommend. Hopefully we can journey back this way.
