Tree Spirit, an “old island” style beach cottage on Topsail Island, has been treated energetically with Reiki, crystals and ineffable resources.
No tv, no phone, no clock. Come to 'be there.'
Tree Spirit Retreat is all about sharing healing energy. We welcome all who wish to bask in healing energy and nature.
Barrier islands shift, creating an auspicious environment for inner change. Topsail Island’s abundant natural attributes feature pelicans, dolphins, and constantly moving sandbars. Friends have enjoyed it and have been refreshed by their time there. We welcome new friends.
~Pet guests welcomed on a case by case basis~
Welcome to Tree Spirit!: Enter Tree Spirit through the screened porch into a great room, with bedrooms in the rear.
Tree Spirit sleeps 2 to 4 best, with total indoor space measuring approximately 750 square feet. The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed, and the second bedroom a full sized bed. If additional beds are needed, the great room provides a fold out sofa.
Practitioners in energetic healing and related fields receive a discount.
Highlights, Sundries & Views: Appointed chiefly with handbuilt and recycled furniture & appliances, Tree Spirit features a nicely equipped kitchen with stainless steel coil-burner stove and restaurant sink. Out back is a charcoal grill. Kitchen utensils include a fondue pot, shrimp/pasta pot, crock pot, ice cream maker and other sundries, plus herbs from our gardens.
A funky outdoor bathhouse with Japanese lines and cast iron tub highlights bathing facilities, complemented by outdoor shower and footbath in front & bathroom with shower inside.
Trees come into view from most windows. A second entrance in the kitchen area leads onto an east-facing deck looking out at an enormous maritime oak with three trunks.
Reiki Attunement, The Beach & The Sound: The earth beneath and around the house as well as the house itself have been treated energetically over a period of two years, culminating with attunement. Walk one or two hundred yards in either direction to reach the beach or the sound.
When you stay at Tree Spirit Retreat, we ask that you treat it as a visit to a friend’s home. Please leave things as you found them - we do not charge a cleaning fee. In the fashion of the traditional beach bungalow, assorted light beach gear can be found on the premises.
