Escape to the top of the world, abandoning your stress to the flat-lands...after you arrive and realize the comfort of this yurt, you will wish to stay longer! We allow overnight stays but most guests wish for a longer visit. It takes days to explore the New River Trail, The Blue Ridge Music Center, hiking all the great hikes along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Blue grass Music festivals, local breweries, wineries, Chateau Morrisette, and more.
In a world that is not unfamiliar with the plagues of environmental pollution, our goal in the construction of this structure was to create a serene, picturesque retreat that prides itself in being eco-friendly; this was done specifically in an effort to preserve the natural beauty of the uncharted portions of the Blue Ridge Mountains. During the construction process, we took every care to leave the natural surroundings largely untouched. The property, itself, boasts a pristine evergreen and hardwood forest that allows the guest to retire from the industrialized strains of daily life. The interior of the yurt has been designed from primarily reclaimed wood. The counters have been hand designed from such wood, and sealed with a natural, plant-based thermoset resin. We further re-purposed the bathroom door from a retired barn door. The hot tub will be clean and waiting for your arrival. You can drive right out the drive, onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. We have also constructed an outdoor fire-pit for use by our guests; the provided wood has been collected from fallen trees on the property. Many of the exterior lights are solar powered. Water on the property is sourced from the Blue Ridge crystalline-rock aquifer, nearly 400 feet below the surface--this water is naturally filtered by the rock structure through which it flows.
Because of the property's location - and because of its natural status - it is frequented by a variety of indigenous animals that call the Blue Ridge Mountains their home. The area also boasts various hiking trails that will allow you to escape deep into nature. After a long hike, enjoy an evening of relaxation in the hot tub as you gaze across the Blue Ridge Mountains--enjoy views of Fisher Peak, Beamer Knob, Mitchell Knob, Harris Mountain, and many other notable summits of the area.
The yurt is a few minutes from the Blue Ridge Music Center, as well as several breweries and wineries. It is fifteen minutes from downtown Mt. Airy; visit to enjoy live music, and nostalgic "Mayberry" shops and eateries. The hiking in the area is phenomenal or you can just sit on the deck and enjoy the mountain view.The yurt is located one mile from a public golf course. The fishing in the area is great: musky, walleye, and small mouth bass all populate the local watercourses. If you are inside due to inclement t weather, the flat screen TV provides access to over fifty channels, and also has a DVD player. We have also included a Bose sound system that is compatible with your phone and laptop and a Victrola Record Player with a record collection.
