We stayed in Yurt 7 on a November weekend where the temps dropped to mid 20's at night. We were most pleasantly surprised by the very clean (and well heated!) bathroom area which was a quick walk from all the yurts. Each bathroom had its own toilet, shower and sink and mirror.

This is my 3rd time staying here at yurt 8 and my husband's first time. I really like this place as I get to be in the nature without having to rough it out in a tent. Also, it is near a lot of outdoor activities, small towns and Asheville. The yurt itself is just ok as it is

I give a 3.5 because it was musty inside the yurt, the shower curtains were molded and dirty and the bathroom doors were rusted. The smell on the floor inside our yurt #4 smelled like urine. The grounds accommodated each yurt well with fire pit, grill and adderondak chairs.

I came here with my 8 and 6 year old sons. We had gone on the kids zip course earlier in the day and then tubing the next day. The view from the gorge view yurt was incredible. It was very comfortable, novel, and clean. My kids didn't think it was as fun as I did, and they

The yurt was a really fun and different way to stay in this mountainous part o North Carolina. We had a great time and a nice location. Amenities were as advertised. We were theere the night of 5 July with no air conditioning and did fine.

View from #7
7 and 8 have the best view, but as others have said they are further from the bathroom and are a little further from your car. But the view and more privacy are the payoff!

How is the fishing in the ponds by the Yurts?
Well, the pond is tiny, and I don't think it's suitable for fishing. You could probably take the trail down to the lake and do some fishing from there. You could probably also find good fishing spots close by in the area. Have fun!

There is a handicap bathroom and there is a yurt with a ramp (#2). That said it is still a rural wooded environment without paved paths connecting everything. If you can negotiate gravel paths and a few "bumps in the road" you should be fine. If you require full ADA connections, paved paths (parking) and no minor obstructions you will not be OK. Hope this helps.

7 and 8 are the furthest but have the best view and privacy. Worth the extra walk. Bring a flashlight for after dark.

"Yurt 7 is near the fire pits and you can hear the water flowing from a small waterfall nearby."
"Yurt 8 has the best views"
"The gorge view has a nice view but is far from the bath house and has a lot of stairs to access it."
"check out the map and location of the yurt before deciding which one to choose"
"Ask not to stay in the #1 Yurt..it sits in the sun and closet to the pond"
