We really enjoyed our stay in the big yurt - it was amazing to have so much space! The views and the property are LOVELY. We took advantage of the trails on the warmest day of our stay and had a great little hike. The yurt included everything we needed, which is always appreciated! It was especially fun to be able to bring our dogs and let them enjoy the property, too. A beautiful getaway and one we’d like to return to!

Great views from the back deck, with plenty of outdoor furniture providedThe perfect little kitchen for staying in and cooking some cozy mealsMountain YurtMountain Yurt

Erika's Yurt (we stayed in the large with the bonus yurt) was just awesome! It's hard to describe how comfortable and quirky it is, but if you are staying in the area, it makes for a wonderful getaway. It's as well appointed as it needs to be. It was a warm November weekend while we were there so I can't say how it stands up to the cold, but we were always comfortable. Highly recommend!

This place was amazing! It is such a cozy little spot away from everything and you can just tell how much love went into its design and build. I will definitely be coming back with friends sometime in the future.

This place is truly truly special! I really hope we get to come back some day, the view was spectacular and the space is so much fun.

Only con is that the couch and the beds are absolutely totally worn out. If you are someone with back or neck issues you will need a massage or chiropractor visit after your stay. I’ve never been to vacation rental that had a nice bed though- so no big surprise.

Second time coming to the yurt with our family. It’s a wonderful space, cozy despite chilly nights, with all the basic supplies we needed for 4 people. Loved having the the second small yurt for kids to sleep in (the “Tiny chair” is amazing). Kids were bummed (but parents relieved) there is no zip line anymore, but they enjoyed all the cozy nooks, toys and stuffed animals, piano and drum. Sound does carry, so if your neighbors are watching loud movies (or your own kids are loud…) you’ll hear it depending where you are in the yurts. Otherwise, peaceful, 30 min to Floyd, wonderful place to get away.

Amazing property, unique and homey decor. This is not your typical yurt, and feels like a warm comfortable home. We really enjoyed our stay here and our big dog did too :)

This was my first experience in a yurt. It definitely was amazing and will be back again. Erika, the hostess, was very quick with her responses to questions. The yurts are amazing. The decor was very nice. Having a full bath, kitchen and laundry made this booking even better. Having three bedrooms and loft gave lots of options for sleeping. It was very quiet and definitely have lots of privacy. Also, the directions she gives to get to the yurt were amazing. As well as the restaurant recommendations. Full disclosure they are at minimum 30 minutes away. However, great choices and several all close together.
