Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Equipped with all the simple essentials including running hot water. The kitchen includes sink, mini fridge, electric burner, toaster oven, and coffee maker. The bathroom has a shower and compost toilet. Enjoy your own fire pit and grill. We grow hops, vegetables, and pastured meats.

The space
The yurt is situated on a quiet section of our land, on a rumbling creek with views of our mountain valley, pasture, and hop yard. While the yurt is a space that allows for reconnecting to nature (no wi-fi & limited cell service), it provides all of the essentials for vacation including a hot tub, fire pit, TV for playing DVDs, well equipped kitchen, AC unit, and NEW comfortable mattress! (Please note, there is no heat source).

Enjoy the view of the hop yard, pasture, and mountains from the hot tub! Nice hiking trail from your front door. Take 30 minute scenic drive to Hot Springs for hiking, swimming, and natural spring hot tubs; or take a trip to the quaint town of Marshall. Asheville is easily accessible, about a 25 min drive.

This is a GLAMPING experience. Some things to note about the glamping-style of the yurt: It is not an insulated building, therefore it can get warm on very hot days & cold on very cold days (the AC unit keeps it pretty cool but on very hot days, its best to get outdoors and come back when it cools off in the evenings); and there is a COMPOST toilet.

Check out our additional listing - Farm Stay Modern Camper - if you have a larger group and need extra space. We can also provide a glamping tent for additional people. Please message us to inquire about the best lodging options for your group.

Where you’ll be

Leicester, North Carolina, United States

The farm is located in a very remote area just outside of Asheville. You can check out some quintessential mountain towns nearby (Hot Springs & Marshall), or enjoy the bustling city of Asheville, all within a 30- 45 minute drive. There is a great family vineyard located 3 miles from the farm called Addison Farms Vineyard. Hot Springs hosts many AT hikers, campers, & boaters and offers natural hot springs, hiking and pubs. Marshall is home to two of our favorite local spots - Mad Co. Brewing Company & Sweet Monkey Cafe. We provide a host of other recommendations located in the information packet inside the yurt. Feel free to ask us for recommendations for anything you're interested in doing or seeing.

My husband, son, and I love living in the mountains of Western NC and are fortunate to have the best of both worlds- a home in the beautiful city of Asheville and a home on a small farm just 25 minutes out of town in Little Sandy Mush. We spend much of our free time helping out at the farm to create a sustainable lifestyle for our family. When we’re not on the farm, we are working, traveling, hiking, swimming in rivers, or hanging out at a local brewery.
