Bryson City cabin description

For a more detailed look at our yurts and our availability, please visit our direct website at www.skyridgeyurts.com!

Sky Ridge Yurts offers the finest in 'glamping' for your stay in the Smoky Mountain Area near Bryson City, NC. Close to Nantahala River Rafting, Appalachain Trail Hiking, Deep Creek Tubing, Cherokee Indian Reservation Exploration, Smoky Mountain Railroading, Fontana Lake Boating, and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, our 'tents' will knock your socks off....or sandals...or boots.....or water skis or....!

If you've never glamped before, there's never been a better time to try it in one of our luxurious yurts. A yurt is a traditional Mongolian tent, but trust us, it's not like any tent you've seen before. Equipped with either full or efficiency kitchens, comfy king or queen beds, central heat and air, beautiful slate walk-in showers, cable television on flat-screen tv's, free wifi, and stunning mountain views from your own private deck, you may never even make it to any of the numerous area attractions!

Rented individually or as an entire facility, stay in either one of our two 24 foot round yurts and experience what a regular old square hotel room just can't give you. If you need more space, take on a stay in our 30 foot round yurt and you'll get the added benefit of a private bedroom suite and a full kitchen. Or, take on all three, and you've got your own private mountain top to share with up to 14 of your family and friends.

So if you're ready to vacation outside of the box, give us a shout and let us hook you up with a vacation that you won't soon forget!

                      Location

                      Only moments from the Smoky Mountain National Park and Cherokee Indian Reservation, you're sure to find some adventure to get into, be it living it up at Harrah's Casino, wandering the woods in the Park, or hoping an open-air train car through the Smokies, a stay at Sky Ridge Yurts offers you endless exploration possibilities.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: I'm Melissa, and I own and manage Sky Ridge Yurts. When my mother told us she was going to live in a yurt full-time, we all thought she had lost her mind. But, once her dream 'home' arrived at her back door, we all knew she was on to something. And, as we all helped her erect the yurt as a family, we all knew that there is really nothing like staying in the openness of these round, domed structures. And, as interest in her yurt grew and people came from far and wide to see it, I knew that offering a place for people to experience what we had all learned about yurts would be something worth doing, so here I am.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bryson City:
                      I have always felt like Sky Ridge was somehow hand-picked especially for me. My husband, a professional cyclist, was tragically struck and killed while riding in 2010, and I wanted to do something to earn income that would allow me to continue to stay home with our two young daughters. I saw Sky Ridge by accident on a junk email, and I knew it was for me. Just one mile from the Nantahala Outdoor Center, North Carolina's premiere white water rafting area, my husband and I spent most of our early life together running this river as guides. Then later, once he became a cyclist, our attentions turned to Tsali, which offers mountain bikers an unforgettable riding experience, and it's just a quick ten minute ride from Sky Ridge. Couple that with the Appalachain Trail nearby, the Cherokee Indian Reservation, and the Smoky Mountain National Park - where the two of us spent practically every vacation ever taken - all within a thirty minute drive, and I just knew this was the place to put the yurts. But it's the view that will get you. Backed on all sides by National Forest Land, you won't believe that view.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      All of our guests have their favorite experiences at Sky Ridge. Some things we've heard guests say is the stone campfire ring, which offers guests a chance to meet new friends around a roaring fire. Or the way the clouds roll into the valley below, showing guests just why they are called the 'Smokies'. Or the beds....for some reason, everyone seems to love the way the beds sleep. Or the fact that Sky Ridge is so close to all of the big ticket attractions that the Western North Carolina Mountains have to offer. But I think the luckiest of guests are the ones that get to stay during a rain shower. Rain usually means a bum day on vacation, but in a yurt, it means a lazy day inside, listening to the sound of the rain striking the tent fabric. Music to most ears!
