About this listing
GLAMorous Camping-Fiesta Romantic! Snuggle under the stars by the fire in this secluded beautiful spot. You can plug in or ignore for an off the grid experience. Preferable to settle in before dark so we can bellhop your gear, otherwise it is fine to make your own way following solar lights up the hill. We offer catering for a no-fuss stay. There is plenty of private area to set up tents on this site to accommodate additional guests. This is 1 of 4 Mountain Fiesta Airbnb listings.
*Note* Sorry no pets in the yurt unless they are considered as additional guests @$10 per night. We do allow pets to stay for free in our Mountain Fiesta Barn & Casa GLAMping listings.
LET YOUR MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE BEGIN! Yurt parking is on the left just after pulling in our driveway at our mailbox next to the metal potting shed. There is room for 2 vehicles there.The yurt is located up the driveway past the barn on the left and the gothic chicken coop and the log sided goat house on the right - on a solar lit foot path up a short steep hill behind our farm house, not accessible by car. Communicating and coordinating your arrival time is important if you would like assistance to the yurt with your gear. *IMPORTANT* If arriving in the evening after dark, we may not be available to assist you to the yurt. Solar lights on the goat fence will mark your path up to the yurt. We will meet you in the morning, as we are early birds. *NOTE*-if we have had many days of rain in a row, the path to the yurt can be a slippery slope to navigate with the "Bellhop Husky" and we may have to help you up by foot. "You can't enjoy the view without the climb."
Snuggle under the stars in front of a romantic fire. Cook for yourself on a charcoal grill or arrange catering for a stay-put no fuss stay. We just added electricity for your GLAMping comfort with a fan and space heater, dresser lamp and coffee maker (we supply our own special Mountain Fiesta blend) or just ignore it because off the grid seclusion can be just what the doctor ordered....great way to reconnect. There are two small battery powered lanterns in the yurt and tiki torches and solar sticks to light the area outside. Headlamps/Umbrellas are a great idea to bring with you.
Our yurt is a Mother Nature lover's getaway, boasting a beautiful view, romantic queen bed, dining table and chairs, candles, skylight, picnic table, grill, firepit, 2 camp chairs, tiki torches. Full moon evenings are amazing here! You can forage for firewood (we have an ax & saw in the metal storage cupboard in the yurt) or buy dry cut wood from us.
We have a modern bathhouse/shower in front of the barn right near where you parked, and for your convenience, just outside the yurt, a brand new outhouse is also available.
We can have chilly nights here. Even though I feel we have covered the comfy cozy department, if you are cold natured, you might want to come prepared. We have bath towels for you.
We do have a water vessel filled with our own spring water in the yurt for drinking and a wash tub just outside the outhouse.
We also have 2 OTHER Mountain Fiesta Glamping listings on Airbnb. Check them out too. Great for a family compound.
The yurt is canvas so FYI, it can become saturated when we have prolonged downpours and there could be leaking to manage. In the three years we have had guests staying in the yurt this has only been an issue 3x. I will give you a little tutorial about the windows and screens which zip and velcro.
PLEASE PRINT & refer to our detailed directions provided on our Airbnb Airbnb location page and our Mountain Fiesta website , as cell service is spotty and GPS has misdirected some of our guests. We have a Verizon cell booster at our house, so if you have Verizon service you are in luck to make a call from our deck or our front porch. We ask for privacy on the porch after 9pm unless of course there is a compelling reason. For emergencies, you could also use our house phone. Closest possibility for service for other cell providers is 3m from the barn.
Unplugging is great for your health!
GROCERY/LIBATION SHOP BEFORE YOU ARRIVE. JAL "Just About Love" Lookout Yurt is located at our event venue, Mountain Fiesta.
You can walk our meandering gardens.
If unoccupied, Casa Viva, overlooking the creek, has a very inviting porch and it is a wonderful place to hang out when it is raining to read, play cards, have a glass of wine or just listen to the rain on the tin roof. Across the road from Casa Viva is fire pit for your use ( if we do not have creekside camping guests) and you and your pets can refresh and you can get your feet wet in the creek. As well, if the barn is unoccupied enjoy a movie or ping pong or take a nap in the hammocks. At the very least give a peek in the barn in case you or someone you know are planning an event or celebration, it is a beautiful rustic party space.
If you are a musician and would like an audience, let me know and that can be arranged.
Interaction with Guests
Please let us know when you plan to arrive so we will be on point to greet you and plan the flow of our day. All 4 of our dogs are friendly. Elsa the Border Collie and LaLa, our lab mix will no doubt greet you first. Elsa will probably have her flying squirrel ready for a new play partner. LaLa, little Tucker and Vincent are our police officers, but all talk.
We will openly communicate with you to make sure your needs are met, without interfering with your privacy.
Mountain Fiesta's own Chef Mo & Brenda Jane can prepare breakfast or dinner . . . let us know if you are interested in our menu or we can create a custom menu, or you can visit him just down the road at the Trust General Store and Cafe.
You can order on Airbnb or talk directly with Chef Mo. Please contact us as soon as you can about catering as we may not be able to honor last minute requests because of our distance from the grocery store. All catered meals are served from our house, at a mutually agreed upon time, or you have many options for places to dine on the property. A few "camp store" items- charcoal & cut firewood bundles and sometimes drinks are available.
If you need anything, do not hesitate to knock on our porch door. Leave us a note/text if we are out.
Linger long enough to experience “Mountain Time” in little known Spring Creek community, a slice of heaven not to be overlooked. Madison County, “The Jewel of the Blue Ridge,” shines with the Township 8’s little gems of Spring Creek, Bluff, Meadow Fork, Joe, Keenerville, Little Creek, Max Patch, Poplar Gap, Fox Run, Ball City, Betsy’s Gap, Friezeland, Trust & Luck, local areas of reference, from an era gone by, but names still honored today, each adding to the luster of the county jewel.
Farmers, some on land that has been dearly held by their family for generations, artists, craftsmen and laborers working hard for an honest day of work, rugged young families living off the land, Conservatives – Liberals, all live here with a common interest to breathe life, here in this amazing slice of Madison County. This is not just a romantic ide(URL HIDDEN)it’s a conscious choice, and a way of life that is cherished, relished and admired. Come get a taste. We think you will be drawn to the creek again and again.
From the top of Doggett Mountain, NW of Asheville & The Biltmore Estate and over Betsy’s Gap NE of Waynesville, to just south of Max Patch Bald and Hot Springs, Spring Creek is just over the Tennessee line, near Newport. Already a favorite ride for cyclists and motorcycle enthusiasts, fishermen and hunters, and destined to be a favorite weekend retreat destination for rest, reflection and a reconnect. Leave the city, the familiar, the routine.
Remote, yet accessible, tucked and rooted with rich history.
Historic Hot Springs is 15 miles from the yurt, a beautiful 30m drive and worth attention with restaurants and the hot springs fed tubs. Of course, downtown Asheville with it's wonders and the famous Biltmore Estate is only 45m away.
We have a small general store 2m down the road, but items are limited and they DON'T sell beer/wine/alcohol. They do sell gasoline and have a country café, which is where my sweetheart, Chef Mo works. Dave’s Burgers just opened at our Spring Creek Community Center just 4mi away.
