[We have a naturally-treated hot tub under the stars!] Now for the rest: Our beautiful, natural Sanctuary is a few blocks from downtown Asheville, NC where there is so much to enjoy! You can walk out the door & into town in just 8 minutes -- with tons of local restaurants, galleries, an indie theatre & amazing street life. Or you can walk out back into our bordering 60 acres of serene wooded trails. We are a 3-minute drive to the Biltmore Estate & a few more to the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are two houses on site — one is the main house, the other is where I live just next door. We're surrounded by extensive permaculture gardens & a recycled stone courtyard.
The 1,850 sq ft. main house is beautiful and peaceful with tons of natural sunlight. Custom-made clay plasters, curved corners, built-in niches, arches & hardwood floors throughout. Large shared kitchen, open dining room, spacious common area, 1.5 bathrooms & co-office with several desks. The kitchen is stocked with all the necessary cooking equipment. The house is heated by wood & each room has a heater for extra warmth. We are surrounded by a permaculture designed edible landscape & a recycled stone courtyard. There is wifi throughout the house. Laundry is in the basement. Free street parking is available.
The Sky Room is one of my favorites. It has a light, airy, sacred feel to it with plenty of light. With an arabesque arch in the ceiling to built-in niches & beautiful earthen relief work, this room is a piece of art. It is fully furnished with two queen beds. We supply towels, extra pillows, blankets & everything else you would need to have a comfortable stay here. All the rooms have closets, space heaters, a fan & your own key so you can lock your room while you're out.
We are minutes from the food co-op, organic cafés & restaurants & a number of yoga studios. The backyard leads to 60 acres of woods with hiking trails. We're a few minute drive or bike ride to 8,000 acres of gorgeous trails at the Biltmore Estate. The Blue Ridge Parkway is about 8 minutes away by car.
Eating local, organic, fresh food. Folks who are into yoga, meditation, nature, permaculture, community, kindness, healing arts & conscious, sensual living. Guests who are tidy & clean up after themselves in common areas & are respectful of others. We are smoke-free & prefer minimal drinking.
