Unique Yurt Lodging

Enjoy one of our two unique yurts tucked into the woods behind the inn.

Click "Check our Room Availability" link in the margin for availability, rates and online reservations.

For adventurous, outdoor loving kind of guests a yurt provides a nature-friendly lodging alternative.Mountain Laurel Yurt

Please note: Yurts are canvas/tent like structures that sit on a wooden deck. Yurts aren't for everyone- see below.

Note: Our yurts are a full part of the bed and breakfast and come with a full breakfast in the morning, use of all common areas, and afternoon refreshments. All linens are provided.

No camping stoves please or guest cooking inside or outside.

No campfires permitted on the property.

Each yurt has a mini fridge for cold drinks. Due to health department regulations guests may not use the inn refrigerator/freezer in the main kitchen for storing food or drinks.

Yurt guests enjoy a full vegetarian breakfast in the inn each morning and typically eat lunch and dinner out in one of the area's many restaurants.

Our yurts are located down the hill from the inn and require guests to navigate rustic steps and paths made of wood mulch/gravel (watch video below). Bathhouse is located up the hill from the yurts.

The facilities are not handicapped accessible.

Only 2 adults maximum per yurt (no exceptions).

Also visit Policies for other information.

Adults (18 & over) only. No Pets or Smoking.

Some Georgia State Parks have yurts and take children. Also visit
http://www.yurtlodging.com for more options for child friendly yurts in Georgia.

You may want to schedule a mobile massage in your yurt subject to availability. Appointments must be made in advance. Visit Dahlonega Wellness

Please take a moment to read these notes before viewing the yurt photos below.

Summer months can have warm/hot afternoons (80 degrees plus) from 1-5pm.
The yurts are not air conditioned. Guests staying in a yurt should make plans to spend the afternoon out of the yurt due to afternoon heat. Bring a bathing suit/towels, go tubing, kayaking, hiking in the mountains or tour the wineries.

Don't Choose a Yurt Over a Room in the Inn if:

You don't want to walk to your bathroom (shower, sink, flush toilet) in any kind of weather.

You don't want to go outside to shut the windows when it's raining to keep yurt dry inside.

You like to stay really warm in the winter. When in the low 20-30's the yurt does not get really hot.

You like to stay cool in the summer or warmer months. They are tents and have fans but no AC.

You don't like the sound of rain, wind or thunder storms. It can be loud when rain hits the canvas roof.

You want running water in your unit. Only water at bathhouse up the hill.

You don't  want to hear sounds of nature that might occur at night, ie birds, raccoons, etc.

You don't want to walk outside in any kind of weather to breakfast each morning.

Bottom line is a yurt is not for everyone which is OK. We do have nice rooms and a suite in the inn. We have many repeat guests who always stay in a room or suite.

We have two 16 foot yurts on the property (200 square feet each) and both have the following amenities:

Queen size canopy bed with linens and covered in a quiltYurt showing deck area
Mini-fridge for keeping your cold drinks cold

What Yurt Guests Should Bring?

Guests are encouraged to bring coffee, tea, mugs/glasses, corkscrew, drinks for minipicture of composting toilet in yurt fridge, microwave popcorn, jug of water, etc. (coffee & tea is served with breakfast each morning).

For your safety a flashlight is required to help navigate the steps after dark so please bring one.

Running water is not available in the yurt or near the yurts. Some guests like to bring moist towellettes/wipes for hand washing after using the composting toilet.

"One of our best trips ever and we learned quite a bit about sustainable living and yurts. We are sure we will see you again. Thanks"  Rottenbergs from Florida.

"We just loved your yurt and the conversations with the two of you were wonderful. Not only is your hospitality wonderful but the green education you are providing outstanding." Ellen and Stephen, Georgia

"Although we recycle at home, we probably waste without being aware. You have certainly given us an awareness that will help us make small changes to "Going Green" and small changes can make a big difference in the future for our girls." The French's, Georgia
