Smoky Mountains Getaway Yurt near Lake in Nantahala National Forest, North Carolina
"The yurt was very nice. Could have been a little cleaner (cob webs, dirty trash can), but we were planning to wipe everything down and disinfect any…"
Overlooking a woodland creek in an idyllic, secluded, and tree-filled setting, this well-appointed yurt in the Topton, North Carolina, area of Nantahala National Forest just five miles from Lake Nantahala and within the Great Smoky Mountains. The property is a unique getaway that accommodates four guests and provides both a sense of luxury and a sense of connection to nature.
There are two bedrooms and one full bathroom. The first bedroom has a queen-size bed, a nightstand, a bedside chair, TV and a French door that opens to a porch. The second bedroom has two twin-size beds with a window and lamp between them, and a TV. In the bathroom, guests will find a sink, a size-able mirror, a toilet, and a spacious walk-in shower, surrounded by wood paneling on both the walls and the ceiling. Linens and towels are provided. In the living room, guests will find a coffee table, a leather armchair, and a leather couch book ended by side tables and lamps, all lending themselves to the woodsy ambiance of the interior. Connected to the living room in an open floor plan, the fully equipped kitchen comes with an oven, a stove, a toaster, a coffee maker, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and plenty of cabinet and granite-top counter space, which doubles as a bar accompanied by a pair of stools. Between the kitchen and living room spaces, guests can also share meals at the wooden dining table. The entire common living space is naturally well-lit by multiple large windows.

The opportunities for outdoor adventure are nearly endless, both on land and on water. On land, visitors can go hiking in the surrounding Nantahala National Forest or the nearby Joyce Kilmer Forest, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Bartram Trail, and the Appalachian Trail. 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.
