The spacious one bedroom yurt is located high on a forested hillside in the middle of 15+ acres. Come enjoy a natural and serene getaway with all the comforts of home, including a full kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and a wood burning stove!

Der Wohnraum

The yurt is perched on a large raised deck high on a mountainside looking out over the fields of the Virginia Piedmont and Old Rag Mountain in the Shenandoah National Park. Complete privacy awaits - there are no other homes within half a mile! The only thing you will hear at night are the sounds of the forest. The yurt will comfortably sleep four (two in the queen sized bed in the bedroom and two on the queen sized fold-out couch). The screened-in porch provides a relaxing place to listen to the birds and enjoy nature, safe from mosquitoes and rain.

Zugang für Gäste

There is a steep gravel driveway leading up to the yurt, which is approximately 1/3 mile off the highway. We have had all sorts of cars do just fine making it up the hill, but it can be daunting. ***November 2015 note: Toyota Priuses have trouble getting traction on the hill *** Please note there is a flight of stairs to reach the deck and the main entry. There is an Xbox for DVD movies and games and a VCR player, but no reception for TV. Cell phone reception is lacking at the yurt, so be prepared to unplug. There is a portable a/c unit for the bedroom for hot summer nights.

Interaktion mit Gästen

We will leave you alone to enjoy the tranquility of the yurt unless you need something! There is a booklet with local information, including maps and ideas for things to do included in the yurt.

PLEASE NOTE: there is a limit of four people and two dogs in the yurt or on the surrounding grounds.

Weitere wichtige Infos

There is ample wildlife in the area, including black bear, deer, raccoons, foxes, bald eagles, hawks, and mountain lions. The animals will leave you and the yurt alone as long as you don't leave garbage unattended outside! Lastly, there are ticks in the brush, so be mindful, check yourself, and wear bug protection if you go into the woods.

Of all the yurts I've stayed at, this is by far the best yurt.

We had a wonderful weekend in Heather's yurt! It is peaceful and feels very secluded. It has a rustic, well loved and comfy feel about it. I appreciated the cleanliness as I am picky about staying in a clean place! I was apprehensive about the bed when I saw it on the floor, but it was very comfortable and we slept very well until the owls woke us up early in the morning! Thankfully, their calls lasted a very short time and I was back to sleep quickly. We loved the extra touches Heather has around the place- candles, nice hand soap, shampoo, a well stocked kitchen, bug spray and all the wood you need for the fire pit and wood stove inside the yurt. We especially enjoyed the screened porch and ate all our meals out there. The location is great- close to wineries and great hiking! Heather was wonderful at communicating and responded to questions very quickly! Thanks for a memorable weekend!!

We were three people staying at the yurt and found it very quaint, peaceful and beautiful... and CLEAN! For someone who has never been camping and is a bit squeamish with bugs, it was perfect. There is absolutely no service for miles, so make sure you have some activities planned but isn't that point? :) On that note, the Xbox/DVD player wasn't working and the caretaker was kind enough to come and look at it. There was a problem with its internal hardware. We had brought a bunch of DVD movies to watch at night so we were a bit disappointed about that. There is a VHS player that works. The kitchen is well stocked, though if you plan on making any specialty dishes bring your own cookware of course (for example we did not bring our own pan/casserole but we made it work with what we had). Also, it was a bit rainy when we were driving there, and since the road up to the yurt is all dirt, my tires got all muddy, but that was definitely expected - just a good tip to know not to bring your Mercedes or anything ;) I was a bit stressed about the drive reading the reviews, and the most important thing to know is to just keep your momentum through the winding trail. Overall we really loved this place. I would absolutely come back. Thank you to the host, Heather, for being super responsive to our inquiries. In fact, I may be planning my next trip for the future!

Heather was a great host! She gave great directions for getting to the yurt (especially since we didn't have great signal for GPS), and for setting up the yurt upon arrival. Everything was clean and there was great information for food, wineries, etc in the area. It was the perfect spot for a low key bachelorette weekend.

Heather's yurt was a perfect spot for our weekend. It is centrally located for wineries and great hiking. Additionally, it was extremely clean and had all of the conveniences of home. Heather is a great host -- very helpful and quick to respond to inquiries. Would have given 6 stars if it was an option!!

My husband and I found this experience to be so memorable and healing! We opted to leave our kids with family and just strike out for a couple of days to unplug (though I can see how this place would work well for kids/dogs). "Unplug" is really the word because there is no signal on those phones! At first this was strange to get used to--and very revealing as I reached for the phone dozens of times--but after some fresh air, lightning bug, and star-by-firelight therapy I was about ready to throw the phone into the White Oak Canyon for good. Note: there's plenty of wifi in the nearby towns, and we LOVED the espresso/coffee shop "Before and After" in Sperryville. Also in Sperryville, there was this super cool little cocktail/tapas bar right next to the RPK pizza kitchen and store (the store was amazing....very boutique, and yet no sign outside....we almost missed it!). We had some delicious cocktails there and chatted with all kinds of cool, summering people with various reasons for passing through. Sperryville is right on the way home from any outings on Skyline Drive, and a great post-hike stop. Back to the yurt, my husband and I feel so much better after just two nights of breathing (and sleeping in) the outdoor air. The tent makes you feel like you're outside, but with all the benefits of inside. Also, we lit a fire on our last evening (definitely cool enough for that even in summer) and star-gazed until we could barely keep our eyes open. Amazing experience with the right amount of everything. All the reviews here are on point--Heather's tips and set-up is extremely well-organized. Everything is labeled and user-friendly.
