Come try something new and adventurous. Stay at our yurt and enjoy the best of both worlds. You can feel a closeness to nature while not skimping on amenities as our yurt is outfitted with everything you need to have wonderful retreat in a secluded woodland mountain setting. Though you will feel like you are in a remote location, you will only be 5 minutes from groceries and restaurants, 10 -15 minutes from Biltmore and eclectic downtown Asheville, and within any hour from most of what Western North Carolina has to offer. If you want to take a hike, the Mountains to Sea Trail is only 150 yards from your doorstep. If you head south, it is a 45 minute hike to the Folk Art Center. If you head north it is only a fifteen minute hike to an awesome overlook. When you get back you can lounge on our spacious deck and take in the mountain scenery before you start grilling dinner. You might then want to make the 15 minute drive to downtown Asheville to hear some good music at one of Asheville’s many venues. Another option would to be to head 20 minutes east to quaint Black Mountain for a walk around. Needless to say this is a romantic spot for a couple to reconnect or bring your kids or another couple as there is plenty of room for them. If you have never been in a yurt, you are in for a comforting experience that living “in the round” creates. So don’t hesitate and come stay with us for a few days or a week and return home feeling relaxed and renewed.

We had a wonderful time at the serenity yurt! It was everything we wanted! It was perfect! It was almost conviently located in Asheville to go downtown, Biltmore, and the lazoom tour! We loved it-- and I can not wait to go back!!!
Awesome stay at the yurt! Shuttle service was also very nice! Will definitely be coming back again!
Awesome property with lots of privacy!
This rental is amazing. It's close to downtown Asheville but is also in the middle of the woods. It is really private and has all the comforts of home.
It is a yurt on the side of a mountain, up a long thin rocky, ROUGH road. Would not stay here again unless you have a truck or Jeep. I inquired about the road b/c I have a decent car. We won’t recommend due to road and hot tub was extremely dirty in fact a health hazard. Otherwise loved the privacy and pics were accurate.
We are meticulous about the sanitation of our spa. I do not know what kind of issues they were having as we were not notified of any during their stay and could have surely taken care of any problem that might have existed. As far as the the road goes, it does not require 4wd unless there is snow. This road services multiple properties and is frequently graded. There is a bit of a trade off when seeking remoteness and views up here in the mountains as you have to get off the beaten path. I guess it all depends on your expectations as the renter from the day prior to this guest’s arrival said our yurt was the “best rental in Asheville".
Best Mountain Rental in Asheville!
Great stay, awesome accommodations. If you want a more affordable rental that is truely in the mountains, yet 12 minutes from Downtown AVL, then you should stay here. Has all the essentials of a hotel, but more interesting than any hotel you'll find around town.
This yurt was in a great location. 20 minutes from downtown and the Biltmore. I just wish it was more private. The way the hot tub is sitting on the deck you have to stare at the yurt directly across from you. I only have it three stars because it needs more cleaning. The outside of the yurt is covered in mildew. Doesn’t effect your stay but it’s not a good first impression. The shower has been stained orange from the water. A previous reviewer mentioned the dust. The sad thing is it’s still dusty. It would have been nice to see the owner listening to his negative reviews. The hot tub needs to be cleaned. It’s full of chlorine but still had a film around the water line. Every other place we have stayed at drains the hot tub after every rent. On the plus side after a good scrub this can be a great place and a great value for the location.
We do listen. We have given the yurt a “good scrub”’. The mildew on the roof will have to wait until spring which is when we usually do the annual roof cleaning which is a process unique to a yurt. I guarantee it will have no effect on your stay. I hope renters will realize that the nature of a yurt pose unique cleaning issues that we are constantly addressing. Also a partition wall to give you more privacy while in the spa is in the works.
Access to the property is by a 1 mile gravel road that does not require 4 wheel drive. We are 15 minutes from Biltmore and downtown Asheville
