Pine Mountain, an RVC Outdoor Destinations resort in Georgia, has announced a unique addition to their property with their “Yurt Village.”

The construction of three new yurts was completed last week with a few finishing touches to be made within the month, according to a news release. Additionally, Pine Mountain has completed renovation of their shower and restroom facilities, which are in close proximity of Yurt Village.

“We decided to build more yurts because they’re our most requested and sold out accommodation type,” said Yale Spina, vice president of RVC Outdoor Destinations. “As seen on the Clark Howard blog, the Pine Mountain yurts offer one of the best glamping values in the market,” Spina added.

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.”

The price of nightly stay starts at $34.95 (off season) for a 16 foot yurt, sleeping four persons. Pine Mountain also has 20 foot and 24 foot size yurts, sleeping up to eight comfortably.

Yurts will also be available for rent at RVC Outdoor Destinations’ newest resort in Hot Springs, Ark., “Catherine’s Landing,” opening this spring.
