Located in Topton, North Carolina, deep inside Nantahala National Forest, this yurt site is situated near the 30-mile shoreline of Nantahala Lake, surrounded by winding creeks, deep gorges, towering waterfalls, the Great Smoky Mountains, and half a million acres of forest.

The Appalachian Trail and Bartram Trail run through the surrounding area, along with numerous other hiking trails in the vicinity. The lake and nearby creeks provide ample opportunities for water sports, boating, and fishing. Within an hour's drive, visitors can also go on trips to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala Gorge, one of the nation's premier whitewater rafting rivers.

A vast, natural paradise awaits outside the door, perfect for both unplugging and adventuring in the wild. At the same time, however, the conveniences of civilization are not too far away. About 18 miles to the east, the town of Franklin offers various options for fine dining, antique shopping, art gallery visits, and museum tours. The towns of Andrews, Robbinsville, and Bryson City are also nearby, and the Cherokee Indian Reservation is about an hour away.

The cities of Asheville, Chattanooga, and Knoxville are two hours away, and Atlanta is three hours away. The closest airport is the Western Carolina Regional Airport, about half an hour away. Read More

Besides hiking, there are a number of other ways they can explore the landscape—from zip-line tours, canopy tours, and Jeep tours, to horseback riding, mountain biking, and driving along the Mountain Waters Scenic Byway.

On the water, visitors can rent pontoon boats, fishing boats, ski boats, canoes, and kayaks, as well as go wakeboarding, jet skiing, and rafting, with both guided and unguided trips available from local companies. For a more low-key outing on the lake, visitors can go on a dinner cruise. The lake is also a prime location for fishing, with many species of fish, including trout, bass, sunfish, crappie, salmon, and walleye.

For shopping and dining, visitors can go to a nearby general store, fishing equipment store, rustic market, and various restaurants, as well as the on-site outdoor supply store, cafe, and grill. For entertainment and edification, they can take advantage of a number of golf courses, the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, the Andrews Twin Cinema, the Ruby City Gem Museum, the Macon County Historical Society Museum, and the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad.

At the Cherokee Indian Reservation, visitors can step back into time to experience traditional Cherokee culture at Oconaluftee Indian Village and learn more about it at the Cherokee Indian Museum. For those who want to try their luck, Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort awaits as well.
