Description from manager

Perched high on the mountain, nestled amongst the rhododendrons, Sweet Retreat is the perfect vacation getaway. Enjoy sunrises and sunsets, starlit skies from the rock ledge, and the tree frog chorus from the porch rockers. Take time to cook dinner on the outdoor charcoal grill, light a fire in the stone fireplace, relax on the porch swing, and lounge in the hot tub.

Only 15 minutes from downtown Black Mountain and 30 minutes from Chimney Rock, you'll love exploring the shops and restaurants of these quaint mountain towns. Lake Lure is just 5 minutes past Chimney Rock, where you can enjoy their beautiful beach area, golf, and numerous water sports. Go hiking in Montreat, just 20 minutes north, and find trails to incredible views of the Swannanoa Valley. Downtown Asheville is a scenic 30-minute drive from the cabin, perfect for exploring the city during the day and returning home at night to unwind in the hot tub or next to the outdoor fire pit.

The subdivision roads are gravel for approximately 2 miles, and mountainous in certain areas. 4WD or AWD is NOT required unless wintry conditions exist. If you are traveling with a group larger than 6, we recommend you also book Sterling Retreat to accommodate your entire party. Sterling Retreat is an easy walk from Sweet Retreat.
