The Little Green Yurt is the perfect base camp to launch your DuPont Forest/WNC Adventure! As featured on 50campfires.com, this Transylvania County gem strikes the perfect balance of woodland charm meets rustic comfort. The yurt is secluded and private but still convenient to many local attractions.  Nestled next to a small stream, our well-appointed yurt offers all the comforts of home with plenty of space to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.  By day, hike and bike the trails of one of our many local forests.  By night, enjoy the fire pit and gaze through the glass dome as the stars & fireflies pass by.  Limited to no cell service and no wifi - enjoy unplugging and glamp among the trees in our 16 foot yurt! Pets are welcome with an additional pet fee of $25 per visit. WE NO LONGER HAVE A SHOWER OR DISHWASHING SINK AT THE YURT. WE NOW JUST HAVE A SPIGOT TO WASH YOUR DISHES AND HANDS. 

Indoor accommodations include a Full Size Loft Bed and a Queen Bed below - linens & towels provided! It's perfect for a couple, a few close friends or a small family. You are always welcome to pitch a tent/hammock/etc. too if that's more your thing! The yurt also includes a small kitchenette w/coffee, mini fridge, microwave and all cooking implements. Outdoors we've got a fire pit, gas grill & picnic table. No shared facilities here! Just one yurt for you and your guests to have to yourselves : ) 

Located minutes from the waterfalls and trails of DuPont State Forest, Ceasar's Head State Park, Jones Gap State Park & Blue Ridge Escarpment, plus nearby French Broad River and Davidson River for Paddling and Fishing. Twenty minutes to Downtown Brevard and Pisgah National Forest, 30 Minutes to Hendersonville and 1 hour to Asheville. The yurt is located in the Cedar Mountain area of Transylvania County, in between Brevard and Hendersonville, close to DuPont Forest.

Please note: there is not a ton of private land to explore, this is more of a base camp accommodation as you explore the local sights. The yurt is near a busy road. During the day, you will hear noise from the road and neighboring houses . At night it is quiet and peaceful and a symphony of frogs and crickets will sing you to sleep.

The Little Green Yurt was cozy and beautifully set up. Although not as scenic and secluded as we would have liked, it was convenient to Brevard and Dupont. My husband intended to hang his hammock for the night but couldn't find a place, FYI for any other hammockers.
Otherwise the yurt was great and had everything we needed. I appreciated the solar and motion lights outside. The beds were cozy, there were snacks and games for the kids and the loft was so fun. We would recommend this stay to other families with kids.

I will preface my review by saying it rained the WHOLE time I was there, and I still had an amazing time. The yurt itself is incredibly cozy with everything you could possibly need for a couple days (or longer). Grill for cooking, snacks for hiking, clean water for drinking, mini-fridge, microwave, shower, you name it.

The location was probably my favorite part. You're right next to Pisgah National Forest which is home to incredible waterfalls and overlook trails. DuPont State Forest is also only a few minutes away with even more waterfalls and wooded trails. Our favorite day was waking up with coffee in the yurt, hiking Pigsah in the morning, lunch in Brevard, hiking DuPont in the afternoon and returning to burgers on the grill, s'mores and a nice hot shower in the evening.

I can't wait to return, and hopefully I get to experience the area when it's not down pouring. Thanks Molly & Christian for being great hosts and for having the yurt so fresh and clean when we arrived.

Great little spot for a home base to explore the area. No frills but also has everything you need. Clean place with thoughtful amenities (fire starters, folding chairs, coffee, lots of water, comfy bedding.) the outdoor shower, with a new on-demand hot water heater was great to have—the water heater wasn’t yet noted in the write up. Nearby Cedar Mtn cafe was delicious. Thank you!

We enjoyed our too-short stay at the Little Green Yurt (which my daughter named Burt). Christian was very helpful and super responsive answering questions before we arrived. We appreciated how much useful and (fun!) stuff was available--we used the folding chairs and the fire starter sticks to get a fire going and had smores. We went swimming at Hooker Falls, and our dinner at Cedar Mountain Cafe was excellent!

The owners of the little green yurt really thought of everything. There’s a mini fridge, heating and cooling, a picnic table, fire pit, cozy bed, and dishes. The porta-potty was clean and smelled fresh on arrival. It would be nice if there was cell service but there’s nothing the owners can really do about that. It’s also close to a cafe and a couple of shops, parks, waterfalls, and a brewery.

Hands down amazing! We were so close to all the best hikes. My kids had a blast. Oh and if you were wondering you can fit 3 kids on the top bed. They all wanted to sleep up there. Everything you could want is right there

Our stay here was wonderful! The yurt had everything we needed and then some. We were very impressed with all the additional finishing touches that they added to make it a truly comfortable and seamless experience. It was fully stocked with everything we needed and was in a great location to get to all of the hiking spots we wanted to go to!

We stayed for two nights in The Little Green Yurt. It was such a fantastic space set beautifully in the mountains with all of the amenities you could have hoped for. The hosts seriously though of everything! Fire starter, camping chairs, coffee, s’mores, ect.

You’re only minutes from downtown Brevard and it’s small town shops, restaurants, ect. Cedar mountain has tons of wonderful things as well. We really enjoyed the live music on Saturday at the cafe. The National forest will offer a ton of hiking and beautiful views.

The neighbors have adorable dogs that come to visit! Highly recommend petting them lol 10/10.

Our stay at the Little Green Yurt was an absolute delight! It was a last minute getaway weekend for us to disconnect (no cell service or WiFi was actually a plus), and it was perfect. We loved the cozy interior, decorated with charm and fully stocked with all the amenities you’ll ever need - plus AC! It was very organized and very clean. Both beds were super comfortable too.

The location was excellent. Just a short drive to downtown Brevard and tons of waterfalls and trails. Make sure you stop at the Cedar Mountain Canteen just a few minutes down the street, especially if the Tin Roof Pizza food truck is there. Just make sure you place your order early and expect to wait… it’s worth the hype though!

We will definitely be staying at the Little Green Yurt again in the near future!
