Reidar's Retreat
is a group of rustic cabins, comfortable and cozy, set in a secluded North Carolina mountain setting. Not a bit of drywall or paint to be found, just all natural wood, stone and earth from the bottom up.

The cabin and a pavilionare nestled in the middle of ten acres which was carved out of the side of a mountain. The surroundings offer a view that captures all the senses of serenity, revealed to visitors from the comfort of two rocking chairs on the the covered porch.

Hiking paths and all the natural settings are there to give way to God's friends that parade around in their own neighborhood without fear or obstruction.

Every retreat in this environment seems to lead to a discovery of one's inner secrets, implemented by some form of creative display of art. I have labled this "ones find". There are some on display in the front rock garden and along the porch deck.

The great room has a temperature control fire place, soft leather furniture, tongue and groove wood flooring with a thick wool rug which tickles your feet as you walk to the kitchen for a snack. Downstairs has a bunk room with four beds and a large country bath room. A winding hand carved railing stair case leads upstairs to a loft bedroom with two beds. Then, take a few steps to a master suite with its own bathroom and private balcony that over looks the front garden and the rest of the mountain range. From this added height and private space it's hard to go back down stairs and give up your special sanctuary.

Away from the cabin and surrounding areas there is horse back riding, waterfall hiking, fishing in crystal clear streams for tasty pure trout. We have plenty of shopping, antique hunting and gem mining. If this is not enough, a white water rafting company picks you up in town for a trip down the Natelahelee river, fast, white and beautiful.

    IMAGINE a retreat where you can get away from the real world and commune with nature.

    IMAGINE a peaceful place of solitude, restoration,and health for the soul

    IMAGE a place to rebuild strength for the spirit, while enjoying the restful backdrop of mountaintops and the blue skies of North Carolina.

    Now, IMAGINE yourself taking the steps on the path towards being there.
