Published May 18, 2018

A mountain community in North Carolina, Asheville is a magnet for history and architecture lovers and a thriving foodie scene. In fact, it earned the nickname “Paris of the South” for its attractions that highlight its lively artistic and cultural background. It’s not surprising, then, why yurts are among the accommodation options being offered in the area. Take a look at this list if you’re planning on staying in a quirky home - here are the best yurts in Asheville, NC.

1. Serenity Yurt (from 140 USD)

Whoever said that staying in a yurt is just like spending the night camping has definitely not seen Serenity Yurt. It not only comes furnished with amenities that you’ll expect from a holiday home, but it also features a hot tub, an indoor fireplace, and even Wi-Fi. Its great location will make you feel immersed in nature but also well-placed for the town proper of Asheville if you need to buy some items or wish to explore the sights.
