Common Questions About Yurts

Can I bring my dog/goat/parrot? +

Pets are not allowed.

Service Animals: The Caverns welcomes trained service animals in accordance with state and federal guidelines. A trained service animal is individually trained to perform a task(s) or work for a person with a physical or mental disability. Only dogs are accepted as trained service animals. “Service Animal” has a specific meaning under the American with Disabilities Act, an emotional support animal generally will not satisfy this requirement.

The ADA requires that trained service animals be under the control of their handler at all times. Tennessee law requires that dogs over 6 months of age be currently vaccinated against rabies. A service dog that is disruptive or presents a threat to the health or safety of others may be asked to leave the property. The Caverns is in a rural location, if you’d like to submit your information to our service animal portal prior to arrival, it will help us prepare for your arrival and connect you with your service animal should you become separated at any time.

Support Animals and Pets: We love support animals and pets, but we are unable to welcome your support animals and pets to The Caverns. Please leave them at home because they cannot be in the venue and we don’t want any furry friends left in the car. “Service Animal” has a specific meaning under the American with Disabilities Act, an emotional support animal generally will not satisfy this requirement.

Do the yurts have wifi?

Yes, we do have WiFi at The Caverns yurt village free for our guests to use. The password is: thecaverns

Do you have mobility-accessible units? +

Yes! We have 2 yurts with no stairs. However, be advised that the terrain is still a grassy field, mulched trails, and rough gravel and that these units do not have a futon, therefore, can only sleep 2 guests. Let us know if you need assistance getting around during the event.


Out of consideration to your fellow campers in the yurt village and our Grundy County neighbors, quiet hours begin at 11p CT after the show.

Can I bring a grill or fire pit? +

Yes, but you will need to bring your own fire pit or grill. Fires must be in a fire pit or grill over gravel, off the ground, and contained. Please do not start a fire before your show begins. If you do start a fire or light a grill before your event, it must be completely out when leaving the yurt village for the show.

We have a communal fire pit at both ends of the yurt village, which are popular gathering places for yurt guests to socialize with one another.

How long is the walk to the venue? +

It is roughly a 15 to 20-minute walk from the Yurt Village the venue.

Yes! For now, we have units available on Airbnb.
