With supreme mountain wilderness views and proximity to Asheville, come for the perfect escape back to nature in the Red Sky Yome! There are gardens at the doorstep and deep forest hiking trails out back, so what are you waiting for? Look no further for a perfect getaway.
The Red Sky Yome has an amazing view of Craggy Dome in Pisgah national forest. Access
to the blue ridge parkway and the folk arts center is only 15 minutes drive. Asheville is 25 minutes and Blackmountain is 15 minutes. Multi car parking on gravel drive right next to the Yome, which is set looking West through the woods. From the sound of a trickling creek to the drone of woodpeckers, the feeling out here is peaceful seclusion. Pets are allowed with permission and a small additional fee. Please notify if you intend to bring any pets.
At 16' in diameter, the yome is roomy and very comfortable solo, for couples, even a small group. Full electrical provides plenty of outlets to charge your devices! Wifi & cell reception are limited, however we supply a landline cordless phone. A granite counter-top kitchenette accommodates home cooking or heating and has a kitchen sink with running filtered well water. Also furnished with a mini-fridge and shelving. Beware of wild animals! We have sighted bears and other woodland animals, our dogs chase them off given the opportunity, but we ask that you don't leave food out. There is a small dining table, and just outside a picnic table to hang out in the sun or picnic by the campfire.
There is an outhouse located uphill on the other side of the driveway that is available for guests to use.
The shower is located inside of the yome.

The Red Sky Yome is on my family farm, please be respectful of the land. I cultivate shiitake mushrooms and woodland herbs out here so please just leave things where they are. You may not pick anything with-out permission. You may not have good cellphone reception, so there is an emergency land line inside. Explore the winding logging roads that lead up to the ridge top for a great panoramic view in 1 hr hike.
Atención a los huéspedes
I live out here in the octagon farmstead building with my partner Indy, there are a few other housemates, and two dogs. Our house is about 150 feet from the yome and our garden is out front of your view, but we are very friendly and non-obtrusive neighbors. We are mostly quiet and keep to ourselves, and try not to be in the garden when you are around so I absolutely respect my guest space to the best of my ability. Im happy to accommodate you during your stay, show you around, etc. Im generally here to respond to your needs if any!

Please remember there is wildlife, don't leave food out! The amazing temperate rainforest here is habitat for some bugs, be prepared you may encounter a few insects or spiders in the Yome, especially during the Summer.
This is like camping so make sure you are prepared. Do you have a headlamp? A lighter? Your blankets? Toiletries? You will need these things.
Preserve the canvas walls, beware of sharp objects and items near or pushed up against the canvas, do not lean on canvas. Pay $20 Pet fee if applicable. Do not leave pets unattended inside without approval. Clean up liquid spills immediately. Turn off power when leaving. No food in trash because of animals like raccoons and bears!

I am an outdoor enthusiast, educator, and small scale farmer, cultivating vegetables, native woodland herbs, and culinary mushrooms. You might also see me downtown Asheville steering people around on the Amazing Pubcycle. My free time is mostly spent developing a demonstration forest garden and farmstead. Think outside the circle and stay proactive; thats my proverb.
