Shenandoah Yurt is a custom wooden yurt that is nestled 1 mile away (as the crow flies) from Shenandoah National Park. Constructed using the finest materials and significant attention to detail, this space will invite you and your family and friends to immediately make yourselves at home. Furnished with plenty of modern conveniences, the yurt sets out to provide a unique experience offering comforts akin to those of a chic boutique hotel. Whip up an omelette with the dozen fresh organic local eggs awaiting you, embrace your inner yogi with a morning hatha sesh on the large deck, or soak in the outdoor hot tub under a starry night sky—the choice is yours! As our property was designed with nature in mind, we also provide an EV charging station for those in need.
Shenandoah Yurt is best suited for 4 people, as there are 2 bedrooms featuring queen-size beds. However, the yurt can accommodate up to 8 people, with a large sleeper couch in the living area and a king-size sleeper sofa in the loft. Linens, sleeping eye masks, earplugs, an iron, and umbrellas are all available for your convenience.
Beyond this, the property boasts a dependable climate control system, wood-burning stove, hot tub, WiFi (full disclosure that this is slow and intermittent due to the yurt’s remote location, but we are on the Starlink waiting list to ensure future improvement), and a smart TV with Disney Plus and Netflix. We also have a PlayStation 5 with 4 controllers and various games, Google smart speakers, a dedicated workspace, a pool table, and a variety of board games. With respect to outdoor activities, please know that we also offer e-bike rentals that allow you to reach the national park in approximately 15 minutes.
The yurt boasts a full kitchen complete with an island, dining table, cookware, utensils, refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, electric stove, microwave, multicooker/rice-maker, and a Nespresso coffee machine! You’ll have everything you need to engage in your morning and evening rituals, and, of course, wine glasses to sip vino during your afternoon wine and cheese happy hour!
With respect to design, the yurt features an open floor plan living room with vaulted ceilings, windows offering panoramic views, a glass dome, and a loft with a pool table. A washer/dryer combo unit is located on the main level for your convenience.
To help maintain a sparkling clean environment, we kindly ask that guests remove their shoes upon entering the yurt.

Please be advised that Shenandoah Yurt is a mountain property. Tanners Ridge Road is paved and maintained, but as the Skyline Lakes community features gravel roads with steep grades, we highly recommend driving an all-wheel or four-wheel-drive vehicle in wet conditions. From November to April, we strongly advise driving a four-wheel-drive vehicle equipped with chains. While there are plenty of dry days during those months as well, there is simply no way to predict this in advance.

We do not offer refunds or cancellations due to weather, so familiarize yourself with related expectations and prepare accordingly before you book.
Cameras are located outside to help ensure guest safety. However, please know that there are no cameras inside the yurt or in the hot tub area for your privacy.
