Experience glamping, Blue Ridge style. Our luxury yurt is located at the top of a small hill, in the center of a 70 acre farmstead surrounded by natural beauty.

The property is located off a quiet country road in Afton, Nelson County. It is private, but not remote. You are close to the Brew Ridge trail, wineries, breweries, skiing at Wintergreen, Blue Mountain Brewery, Devil's Backbone, golf, hiking, or driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hike or bike directly from the Yurt up into the mountains!

The space
PLEASE NOTE: There is a 3 night minimum for long weekends. Please leave those weekends available for the folks who want to come for 3 nights. Thanks!

Glamping at it finest. Enjoy a relaxing stay in our Yurt in the heart of the Blue Ridge and feel the stress of daily life slip away.

The Yurt is 30 feet in diameter with 10 foot walls. It's a total of 720 square feet with a cozy bedroom and a sleeping loft. It has heating in the winter and air conditioning in the summer, a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, a bathroom with a claw foot tub with shower, fresh linens and towels, and an open living/dining area with a wood stove. It boosts a large 400 square foot deck with lovely views of the pond and the Blue Ridge mountains.

Take advantage of all that the surrounding area has to offer including hiking, skiing, antiques, farmer's market, restaurants, live music, and all the wineries, breweries, and cideries along the Brew Ridge Trail. Or just hang out at the fully equipped Yurt. Kick back with a glass of wine from one of the local wineries and watch the sunset, dine al fresco on the large deck, enjoy the stars from the hot tub tucked in a secluded grove of trees nearby, cozy up to a fire in the wood stove, enjoy a fire or roast marshmallows on the outdoor fire pit, watch a movie, listen to records, get up early and watch the sunrise over the mountains, hike directly from the Yurt to Humpback Rocks and the Appalachian Trail, or enjoy fishing, paddle boating, and swimming in the spring fed 2 acre pond.

Guest access
You have shared access to the pond and with the owners. If you are at the pond, we will not be. If there is no one at the pond, we will use it but welcome you to come down! You have exclusive access to the hot tub.

Other things to note
The main road to the yurt is gravel and pretty bumpy. A high clearance vehicle is recommended but not necessary. Just take it slow and you should be fine.

The yurt now has super fast fiber optic internet!!! It also has a cell signal booster, so if you have Sprint or Verizon you should be able to make calls and get a 3G cellular signal. Or use the wifi calling feature on your smartphone.

The yurt has all the creature comforts you might want but keep in mind, it's still a tent. It has a/c but during the hot summer months (especially during a heat wave), it can be difficult to keep it cool. The sleeping loft gets hot and you may want to keep that in mind when booking the yurt during peak summer months. It gets cooler in the evening once the sun goes down.

You will hear birds chirping, frogs and crickets in the summer, the sound of rain on the roof, the wind blowing, owls hooting at night, coyotes howling, and the occasional dog barking. For light sleepers (raises hand) we have provided a fan and a white noise machine.

The weather can get pretty intense in our neck of the woods at times. The wind comes down off the Blue Ridge like a freight train during a storm. If you happen to be in the yurt during a storm, try to relax. It sounds worse than it actually is.

Location

Exact location provided after booking.

Afton, Virginia, United States

The yurt is located on the same property as our farmhouse (about 300 yards away) on a quiet country road with less than 10 houses. The yurt is surrounded by open pasture and a few trees. You can see the Farmhouse from the Yurt but it's a good distance away. The trees provide privacy.

You are about 2 miles from the Flying Fox Winery. It's a nice walk to a sweet little tasting room that has lovely views. Their rose is a personal favorite.

Paulie's Pig Out about 2 miles away on 151. Yummy barbeque with tasty sides, especially the mac and cheese.

Traeger Brother's Coffee located in the Rockfish Valley Community Center on 151. Local roasters based in Lovingston, VA. Fair trade organic coffee. Check out the Treasure Chest thrift store while you're there!

Claudia's Catering also located in the community center. Homemade tasty baked goodies. Breakfast and lunch served daily Wednesday thru Friday.

Blue Mountain Brewery, about 6 miles away. Beautiful mountain views and yummy pizza.

Nellysford Farmer's Market. 6 miles away. Saturday mornings 9am-12 noon. May through October. 3 miles away on 151 near Nellysford. Awesome market with a lovely selection of local food. Live music.

Wintergreen Resort. 17 miles away. Live music in the summer, lots of activities year round, skiing in the winter.

Tuckahoe Antiques, located on 151 just before Nellysford. Nice selection of antiques and collectibles.

Bold Rock Cidery, 7 miles away. A lovely setting to enjoy a glass of award winning cider. Or take it to go and enjoy it on the deck of the Yurt. Blue Toad Cidery is a few more miles up the road.

Veritas Winery, my favorite winery in the area. Starry Nights live music and farm to table dinners in the summer.

Trail Rides at Rebel's Run, Afton Mountain Road. Our daughter takes horseback riding lessons here. Mimi, the owner is awesome and her horses are beautiful and well tempered.

Devil's Backbone Brewery and Restaurant is 7 miles away in Nellysford. Great apres-ski on Friday and Saturday evening in the ski season and beautiful grounds and outdoor seating.

Cardinal Point winery is about 10 minutes away and has a nice tasting room and outdoor patio.

Hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway is about 30 minutes away. There are some fantastic views and sunset spots that are only 2 miles from the trail head.

In summer, hike to the slippery rocks in Stony Creek - only a 15 minute drive and 20 minute walk. Slip and slide on the natural water slide and splash into the tub.

During the music festival season LOCK'N and the Festy are 30 minutes away in Arrington.

We can arrange for a private yoga lesson or massages at the Yurt if you're interested.

And so much more! We're working on a detailed book of what to do and see in the area that we'll leave in the yurt. In the meantime, we're happy to offer suggestions on what to do and see in the area.

Canadian girl (by way of Brooklyn, NY!) now living on a 70 acre farm in the heart of the Blue Ridge with my husband, 13 year old daughter, a chocolate lab mix named Jolene and a Westie named Rosie. We left the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn 6 years ago looking for greener pastures and found ourselves in beautiful Nelson County. We bought a run down farm and farmhouse (a diamond in the rough) and have been lovingly restoring it to it's former glory. In the near future, we hope to have animals at the farm. In my spare time, I love to cook, garden, travel, and read.
