My husband, our two children and myself stayed at Sky Ridge along with my brother and his family for three nights. Not ever having seen a yurt before we didn’t know what to expect. We were amazed and excited when we reached the top of Sky Ridge and saw the yurts and our beautiful view for the next few days. All three of the yurts were beautifully decorated, well outfitted and comfortable. We all slept great and had a great view of the night sky through the dome of the yurt. Sky ridge is in close proximity to many things so our schedule was packed of fun things to do. We went to Fontana Lake and enjoyed seeing the dam, we hiked and had a picnic and then drove and hiked at the Tsali recreation area on the same day after lunch. We also enjoyed a day of hiking at the beautiful Joyce Kilmer forest and driving around lake Santeetlah and the dam. The best part of all the nights was building a fire at the stone fire pit and seeing the kids have fun cooking their hot dogs and s’mores. After the kids were tucked in, the adults enjoyed good wine, a warm fire and a gorgeous star filled mountain sky. I highly recommend making the trip to sky ridge… we all cannot wait to go back!
