Come enjoy the mountains and reconnect with nature while staying in a beautiful 15' yurt with lots of windows surround by trees. Fall asleep looking at stars through the dome and awaken to the sound of birds chirping. Designed by yurt lovers, built by yurt lovers, for yurt lovers. This is not just a stay, it's an experience you won't forget! This yurt sits about 3 feet high of the ground and so we appropriately called it "The Highlander". It is quaint, peaceful, and magical.
You will enjoy a quiet and peaceful night in a one of a kind yurt decorated colorfully with your experience in mind.
This yurt is light, bright and warm! Outdoor areas for sitting and enjoying the woods, firepit area where you can take in the magnificent night sky while roasting marshmallows. Sanctuary amenities include outdoor labyrinth, tennis court, covered group eating area, group picnic area and fire pit, volleyball, gymnasium, basketball court, and peaceful, private relaxation spots. Guests may request a Reiki session or energy work on a monetary love offering basis to restore balance, harmony and well being to the body and mind.
The yurt is a bedroom only. Bathrooms are available in the gymnasium a short walk past the labyrinth. There is a port A potty available close to the yurt. This is truly primitive camping with comfort! The yurt does not have electricity.
Other activities available in the area are: Whitewater rafting, boating, fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, hikes and tours of the area including The Smoky Mountains National Park, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Cherohala Skyway, the Tail of the Dragon and Fontana Dam.
This is an incredibly beautiful area, very pristine and full of adventure for the nature lover, car enthusiast, motorcycle rider and adventure seeker.
This area definitely requires good, reliable transportation. Most people drive or ride motorcycles. There is a shuttle from the airport that is not terribly expensive. Parking is available just outside the yurt.
** Price includes taxes and cleaning fees!

Hello I am Liz. I live in the great Smoky Mountains National Park area. I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, swimming, waterskiing, tennis and working outdoors on the land.
In my spare time, I love to travel, take photographs or read books, hike, and swim in the beautiful lakes in my area. My favorite places to travel to so far are all natural parks, Spain, London, Sedona, Arizona, India, Mexico, and South America.
The young man in the picture is my son Felipe who now lives in South Carolina. I also have an adopted son whose name is Dakota.
I am a socio/cultural anthropologist by education. My life's passion is in serving and empowering people to live a more peaceful, loving, joyful, and healthy life through teaching them about meditation, holistic living, healing energy work, and the inter-connectedness of all things. I am a Reiki master and a Non-Dual Kabbalistic Healer. I am also a therapeutic foster parent and run a not for profit camp, for abused, neglected and disadvantaged children.
I love children, people, animals, and look forward to a day when we all truly recognize our "Oneness", living in love, peace and harmony.
I have a beautiful dog named Wayah, which means eagle in Cherokee. She is half wolf and half German Sheppard. She has such a great personality that all my guests love her and want to take her home with them. Not happening!
I once took a silent retreat and the motto was "May all beings be happy." I like that!
