Blanche Manor Yurts
A privately owned 70-acre ranch nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our guests enjoy miles of shaded mountain trails astride our beautiful and smooth Tennessee Walking Horses. We also offer "City Slicker" packages, which allow our fledgling wranglers to participate in true cowboy games such as steer roping, barrel racing, obstacle courses, and more. Our overnight guests can enjoy week long dude ranch packages that include meals, riding, entertainment, and outdoor activities with a few minutes drive such as white water rafting, zip lining, tubing, kayaking, mountain biking, trout fishing, and hiking.

Our yurts will leave no footprint. We used an existing septic system, so the yurt village had to impact on the forest or envoirment. We will be going off grid witht the yurts within the next year.
Locally or Family Owned Business Notes
Our ranch is owned by our family, Bernie and Peggy Blanche and our four children Josh (9), Jacob (7), Joel (6), and Maya (4). We work the ranch and yurts from the ground maintenence to booking reservations. My husband built the yurt bathhouse himself, and constructed the yurts and their furniture.
Pet Friendly Notes

Lodging Style and Amenities
We have eco-friendly yurts. We call it "glamping." Each air-conditioned and heated yurt is appointed with sleeping for six with log-style bedding. There is a grill, deck, and hammock to enjoy cooking in the outdoors with a mountain view! For the true pioneers there is a firepit to cook a true cowboy feast. Each unit also has its own restroom and shower, and there is a shared hot tub to enjoy the evening stars. The yurts are located on our ranch and offer privacy, yet conveninece to town and activities. Our yurts share one common septic system and could be moved without leaving an enviornmental footprint. It was our answer to our guests request to stay on our ranch with destroying the reason we all flock to these beautiful mountains.
