The SpaceThis yurt offers an adventure in glamping. The large round canvas structure is sited in the woods, with its own big deck (with fire-pit) overlooking Frog Pond. Inside are 2 beds, wood stove, recliner and plenty of places to sit & chill. The big table is right for dining or doing projects. We offer coffee (you make) but no breakfast; mini-fridge, microwave, plates, cups and utensils. There is wi-fi & plenty books, games & DVDs (no TV; bring your laptop). The yurt is especially enjoyable in the spring and fall, and magically great in the rain. It gets very cold at night and early morning from November thru March. Remember the yurt is a canvas tent. We have lots of comfy covers, but if you have a a sleeping bag you like, feel free to bring it along. Guest AccessFrog Pond Farm is located deep in the woods in the central Piedmont of North Carolina. Two people live here, along with 2 cats, 30 chickens, 2 geese and 4 very energetic dogs. You will have access to your own heated bath house (with sink, toilet and shower), about a 1-min. walk from the yurt. You may also visit the Woodland Banners Poetry Walk, a permanent art installation on the grounds, as well as a yurt art gallery called Bourbon, Dogs & Art. You are welcome to roam our 28 acres as you like. We have no nearby neighbors. Interaction with GuestsWe live and work here, so we are available all the time. Our house is about 100 feet from the yurt and next door to the bath house. You can reach us by phone or by knocking. Our style is to get out of your way, unless you are lonesome. The NeighborhoodFrog Pond Farm is located about two-and-a-half miles from Saxapahaw, a 200-year-old mill village on the Haw River. Saxapahaw is a thriving tourist destination, offering Saxapahaw General Store, The Eddy Pub, Haw River Ballroom, The Bridge center for healing arts, Left Bank Butchery, Volt Salon, Haw River Farmhouse Ales brewery and The Red Door Bookstore. Haw River Canoe & Kayak Co. can take you boating on the river, and you can hike the Haw River Trail. For supermarkets or liquor stores, you can drive to Graham (take Hwy 87 north) or to Carrboro/Chapel Hill (take Hwy 54 east); they are both 15 miles from Saxapahaw. Getting AroundWe live in a rural setting. Saxapahaw offers no public transportation. The nearest train stop is Burlington, 15 miles north of us. Airports are in Greensboro & Raleigh-Durham, each 35 minutes away east and west. We have ample free parking at the farm. Other Things to NoteOn arrival, be ready to be greeted by our four extremely enthusiastic dogs, who will want to make friends immediately (we supply dog treats in the yurt). While here, expect to enjoy the sights *and sounds* of 30 free-roaming chickens, a pair of geese and assorted wild owls, hawks, coyotes, etc. You might want to bring flashlights & umbrellas, and bathrobes for the hot tub. Remember: a yurt is a tent, so think "camping." It might be chilly when you get up in the morning. We are in the woods and you might see a spider web or the occasional insect. It is rustic.
