Come enjoy the mountains and reconnect with nature while staying in a beautiful 15' yurt with lots of windows surround by trees. Fall asleep looking at stars through the dome and awaken to the sound of birds chirping. Designed by yurt lovers, built by yurt lovers, for yurt lovers. This is not just a stay, it's an experience you won't forget! This yurt sits about 3 feet high of the ground and so we appropriately called it "The Highlander". It is quaint, peaceful, and magical.

The space
You will enjoy a quiet and peaceful night in a one of a kind yurt decorated colorfully with your experience in mind.

This yurt is light, bright and inviting! Outdoor areas for sitting and enjoying the woods, firepit area where you can take in the magnificent night sky while roasting marshmallows. Sanctuary amenities include outdoor labyrinth, tennis court, covered group eating area, group picnic area and fire pit, volleyball, gymnasium, basketball court, and peaceful, private relaxation spots. Guests may request a Reiki session or energy work on a monetary love offering basis to restore balance, harmony and well being to the body and mind.

The yurt is a bedroom only. Bathrooms are available in the gymnasium a short walk past the labyrinth. This is truly primitive camping with comfort! There is AC/heating available. WiFi is also available a short walk from the yurt, in the main area.

Other activities available in the area are: Whitewater rafting, boating, fishing, kayaking, mountain biking, hikes and tours of the area including The Smoky Mountains National Park, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Cherohala Skyway, the Tail of the Dragon and Fontana Dam.

This is an incredibly beautiful area, very pristine and full of adventure for the nature lover, car enthusiast, motorcycle rider and adventure seeker.

This area definitely requires good, reliable transportation. Most people drive or ride motorcycles. There is a shuttle from the airport that is not terribly expensive. Parking is available just outside the yurt.

Robbinsville, North Carolina, United States

The natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains and the Nantahala National Forests is what made me fall in love, not to mention, the many lakes, rivers and waterfalls. There are hiking trails everywhere, including the famous Appalachian Trail, 20 Mile Ranger Station, Fontana Dam, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and Slick Rock, just to mention a few. Also, the Tail of the Dragon is just minutes away! Ride to the Cherohala Skyway and enjoy breath-taking views!

Hello I am Liz. I live in the great Smoky Mountains National Park area at The Heart Center. I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, swimming, waterskiing, tennis and working outdoors on the land.

In my spare time, I love to travel, take photographs or read books, meditate, hike, and swim in the beautiful lakes in my area. My favorite places to travel to so far are all natural parks, Spain, London, Sedona, Arizona, India, Mexico, and South America.

I am very blessed to have a beautiful family and, in the last two years, a perfect and wonderful grandson, Thomas Dante, whom I am enjoying thoroughly!

I am a socio/cultural anthropologist by education and I love the concept of learning about people from a holistic perspective. My life's passion is in serving and empowering people to live a more peaceful, loving, joyful, and healthy life through teaching them about letting go of the past; practicing meditation to embrace the present moment; holistic living; restorative, intuitive energy work to come into alignment, balance and harmony; and, the inter-connectedness of all things. I am a Reiki master and have training in Non-Dual Kabbalistic Healing, which uses the ancient teachings of the Kabbalah to restore balance and harmony. I teach various modalities of meditation and contemplation. I also founded a not for profit camp for abused, neglected and disadvantaged children. We have been doing the free camp for 10 years now.

I love children, people, animals and nature. I look forward to a day when we all truly recognize our "Oneness", living in love, peace and harmony.

I have a beautiful dog named Wayah, which means wolf in Cherokee. She is half wolf and half German Sheppard. She has such a great personality that all my guests love her and want to take her home with them. Not happening!

I once took a silent retreat and the motto was "May all beings be happy." I like that! Therefore, the Heart Center, the 30 acre retreat surrounded by National Forest, is dedicated to giving our guests a comfortable, peaceful, restorative and joyful experience!

During your stay

I like to interact with all my guests and make them feel at home, however, I am also mindful to allow them to have their privacy, quiet and relaxation time. Right now, I am celebrating a new grandson, and I am visiting him in Greenville a lot!

I am a Reiki master and assist in energy restoration and healing, as well as, meditation and self exploration techniques. Guests are welcomed to join me in a fire ceremony from India, to help heal the planet, meditation practice/discussion, or receive an energy healing on a monetary love offering basis.
