Pine Mountain Completes Yurt Village!

Our Georgia resort, Pine Mountain, an RVC Outdoor Destination, has announced a unique addition to the property...a village of yurts! The construction of three new yurts was completed last week with a few finishing touches to be made within the month. Additionally, they have completed renovation of their shower and restroom facilities, which are in close proximity of Yurt Village.

Each yurt was built with quality indoor and outdoor features for guests to enjoy. Every yurt has a fire ring and deck for outdoor activities. 

Indoors, guests will find attractive furnishings with a place for dining in case of inclement weather. Standard yurt features include beds with fresh linens, a tent-like design, wooden floors, advanced heating and A/C units, windows, and a skylight.

Yurts are often associated with a luxury camping experience and are a rare find in the United States. Jim Anderson, General Manager at Pine Mountain, said people “love” yurts because they “provide a fresh and fun overnight experience while eliminating all the negatives associated with camping: extreme temperatures, rain, bugs, and dirt.”

Yurts will also be available for rent at our newest resort in Hot Springs, Arkansas – “Catherine’s Landing,” opening in April.
