Wow!!! We rented the Original Yurt in Mt. Pleasant to celebrate our 10th anniversary and WOW what an amazing and unforgettable experience!!! We had never heard of a yurt and had no clue what to expect. Upon pulling up to the yurt in the middle of nowhere and seeing how beautifully it was set up with a sitting area with a fire stove, wooden swing, outdoor table and chairs, grill and even a pizza stove we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. Once walking inside the yurt, we were in total awe at the setup and the beauty of the home. The home was immaculate and every inch of the home was decorated with such love and elegance. So cozy, warm and welcoming!!! Soon after our arrival, the host, Rosa, arrived to welcome us and offer some instructions. She is just so sweet! Our stay exceeded all expectations! We were able to disconnect from the world and reconnect with each other, God and nature. We felt very safe in the home and sitting outside enjoying nature, no matter what time it was. We enjoyed walking the trails on the property, watching the horses and even interacting with the neighbor’s Enu (ostrich) 😊. We highly recommend this location if you want to get away and disconnect. It definitely is a piece of paradise in the middle of nowhere. So thankful for the opportunity to meet the owners, Rosa and William, and to interact with them and personally thank them for sharing their home and their story with us. We have been blessed with new friends! We can’t wait to return!!! Book your getaway now!
I haven't met Melissa in person yet but she has been patient with me trying to get the YURT I want this late in the season. I only just found out about this place and was saddened to see they are pretty booked October and November naturally. I was lucky to get one at all! Thank you Melissa for having the BEST customer service. Looking forward to meeting you.
Can't wait...just wish it was sooner than Valentine's day weekend. Glenn Kamka
I can't say enough about our experience at Sky Ridge Yurts, It was Perfect! The location and the views were Amazing. The Yurt was Beautiful, so well equipped/decorated and cleaned to perfection! We had a wonderful stay, and will be returning as soon as possible. Many thanks to the owners and staff for providing the perfect vacation spot for us!
Quick question. This will be my first visit. Is there WiFi and cellphone service in the yurts? Unfortunately, I have to check in for work 1 day. Thanks in advance.
Is the view from the Cherokee unobstructed? It appears to be, but I have looked at so many photos now that I am lost. 🤣 Thank you to anyone who can provide an answer.
Thank you for your help today, Melissa. My goal for our family’s spring break is to see no “exit through the gift shop” signs while enjoying each other’s company and the great outdoors. I’m am looking forward to our trip! So much gratitude 💚
Yes I'm on the top fan list, says Facebook.lol
I saw the progress today, rode up on my way to other encounters and checked it out!!! It's a yes for me, lol
We had a great getaway. Just wished it hadnt rained all day yesterday. I highly recommend staying in a yurt!!! The views are gorgeous and the yurt was incredible. The bed,pillows and shower were amazing! We Will definitely be back!!!

Been trying to come see us this October with no luck? Great news! We’ve just had a cancellation in our gorgeous Tsali yurt October 27-30th! Don’t miss this chance to do fall right!

Social distancing at its best!

This is looking up the ridge from the Santeelah. At the top of the ridge you can see our original set. Total yurts on the ridge is 7.

How many have you stayed in?

Drumroll please....."The Original" is now available for guests! Want to stay in the yurt that started it all? Come to beautiful Mt. Pleasant, NC - just outside of Charlotte, NC near the beautiful Uwharrie Mountains - and experience a new way to share in the Sky Ridge Yurt life!

Nestled on a gorgeously private 10 acre lot in the tiny town of Mt. Pleasant, you can stroll along the mile-long loop of private forest trail (or better yet, bring that mountain bike), roast marshmallows over the Solo Stove fire pit, take selfies with our resident emu, marvel at the incredible sunsets over a pasture of beautiful horses, have your very own outdoor fire-brick pizza oven party, visit nearby 73&Main steakhouse or Southern Grace Distilleries for a tour, and so much more!

And of course, your yurt will be everything you've come to know and love about Sky Ridge - maybe even more so. Even better, let the owners of Sky Ridge Yurts shower you with the hospitality that you've grown to know and love directly rather than over the phone during your stay!

Want to come? It's available to book now on our website at www.skyridgeyurts.com. Just click that "Check Rates & Availability" button at the top and come and stay with us in Mt. Pleasant!

Meteors, blue moon and Mars, oh my! Beautiful triple threat on tap for skywatchers in October

Who is lucky enough to be on the ridge during the meteor shower this month? October has many surprises in store!

ksat.com October is going to be a busy month, astronomically speaking. There are three pretty big events happening that any skywatcher will want to take note of.

I saw the inside of the yurt, now I'm a believer....Just like home, no doubt in my mind...I'm in love, and I'm a believer. I couldn't leave her if I tried...

Once you stay with us you won't want to leave. Your gonna be a yurt believer...it's all the comfort of home.

If you’ve got plans to stay with us this weekend, don’t be fooled by the hurricane news. The rain will be done tonight (Thursday) and the weekend looks great, and should feel like a sneak peak of cooler weather!

Hey Polar Express peeps.....just confirmed booking for the big ride will be open for online reservations THIS MONDAY September 14th. Word is booking early would be a good idea, as COVID capacities will apply. They’ve still got plenty of weekday options, and Coach Class tickets are still available for Saturday’s. If you’re coming, now is the time to book! (Oh, and you can stay with us, too!)

Wake up🌄. Walk outside, inhale fresh air🌬️ Exhale stress😤 Drink coffee ☕ on the patio. Repeat.

This has been 10 long years in coming, and it may not look like much now, but this will be the finish to what we started in 2010. This will be where our long-awaited Wayah House will be ready and waiting for guests in late 2021.

Some of you might not know about my late husband Adam. He was a biologist before he was a cyclist. He knew aaallll the native plants and ferns were his favorite. So all of the ferns you see on our ridge are natural - we didn't plant them. I just asked the ground guys to always leave the ferns and let them grow so it's like my own little memory of Adam. -Melissa

What do ferns make you think of?

It’s time for the Milky Way to shine!!

Milky Way stargazers take note - the window of time to view this celestial event diminishes starting in October. From Mid August through September the best time is soon after the sun has set and the sky has grown dark. Generally the dense part of the Milky Way is best viewed when it is as high as possible in the Southern sky. Photo #1 is by @andrewtburns at Clingmans Dome, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and photo #2 is by @nathanrivers at Fontana Lake. There are plenty of high elevations spots along the overlooks of the Blue Ridge Parkway, all near Bryson City. Learn more about finding and photographing the Milky Way: https://starcircleacademy.com/2012/06/milkyway/

General information

Sky Ridge Yurts offers five traditional Mongolian yurts for those adventurers who are tired of tent camping, but not into the standard Motel 6, either. Two of our yurts are 24 footers, each with beautifully tiled walk in showers, queen or king beds, kitchenettes, spacious private decks, and a dome experience like you wouldn't believe. One of our yurts is a 30 footer, complete with a full kitchen with modern appliances, a private queen bedroom, sleeper sofa, tiled walk in shower, and a private "flying" deck. Two of our yurts are 20 footers, and have a full bath, efficiency kitchen, queen bed and twin pull out bed, and private fire pits. All of our yurts have central heat and air, flat screen televisions, available wifi, coffee makers, and if you've got Verizon, your cell phone will even work great, too! Every guest will have access to a patio area with stone campfire pit and grill, and you won't believe the view! Best in the area, overlooking all National Forest Land in the Nantahala Gorge.
