Come Hang With Us

Spend a week in nature, unplug, relax, rejuvenate and drop deep into yourself with our 4 to 7 day retreats  in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.
We offer retreat programs tailored to your needs but our standard programs offer "glamping" in a beautiful nature retreat that joins the Nathalla National Forest and offers easy access to hiking and sightseeing.
Come "Hang With Us"

Hammock sleeping- we use  the best hammock available: Warbonnet Blackbirds. You will be amazed at the comfort....you might even do like we did and switch to sleeping full time in a hammock...they are that comfortable!

Hanging beds  
Elevated Tents and Cots

The fall leaf season is absolutely stunning here. Beginning in September and peaking about the third week in October it is considered by many to be one of the most scenic in the country. Although the temperatures are a bit cool in the evenings (50 degree on average) it is still a perfect time for hiking and camping with day time temperatures  between 60 -75 degrees.
We use Warbonnet Blackbird hammocks considered by many to be the finest on the market. If you have never slept in a modern hammock such as these you will be in for a surprise. They are extremely comfortable- nothing like the old hammocks you Dad may have had hanging in the back yard.

“Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves,” 
 John Muir in "Our National Parks".
