About the property


MORNING GLORY IN THE NEWS! We were just honored to be featured in The Asheville Citizen-Time Home of the Week section of the newspaper!! The village is awesome with all of its new renovations to the large pool, clubhouse, and new bocce ball court. We are a gated community with resort amenities and the village has been featured on HGTV numerous times.

You've seen them on TV, now experience for yourself the newest rage of living in a "tiny house" in a beautiful one-of-a-kind tiny house community on 26 acres in Flat Rock, NC.

The Morning Glory is your larger, modern tiny house with 400 sq. feet, high ceilings and over-sized windows to allow for maximum natural light, a mounted fireplace gives warmth of a crackling fire in the cool seasons and the ambiance of glowing flames in the summertime without the heat.

A fully equipped kitchen for your favorite home-cooked meals with full size appliances, including stove, fridge, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, a crock-pot, and blender. The den has a new full sized sofa sleeper, flat-screen TV, DVD player, and mounted fireplace for your enjoyment.

The private downstairs bedroom has a new comfortable queen sized bed, closets, dresser drawers, and TV. Climb the staircase (not a ladder) to the loft bedroom which has a new full sized mattress and skyline windows. Nice new quilts, linens and blankets are provided to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Remember - nothing feels or smells as good as things that are brand new!! Also, enjoy the pool, or sitting on the large front porch in true southern Victorian antique white wicker under the shade tree.

The Morning Glory is conveniently located to everything. To name just a FEW of the favorite nearby attractions: the Biltmore House and the shops of Biltmore Village as well as the Grove Park Inn, both in Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Bat Cave, very popular DuPont State Forest in Cedar Mountain, Looking Glass Falls, and Sliding Rock in Brevard, and just five short miles from shopping and dining in historic downtown Hendersonville. If golfing is your fancy, there are twelve golf courses in the area. The driving distance to Crooked Creek Golf Course is only 8.9 miles. Also within a short day trip are Chimney Rock and Lake Lure in the WNC area, and also Greenville, SC. Oh, and if you are itching to try your luck – Harrah's Casino is only about an hour away.

Enjoy horseback riding, hiking and biking trails, awesome bridges, and several truly magnificent waterfalls at DuPont State Forest which boasts of having scenes from The Hunger Games filmed there! Spend a day fly fishing on the Davidson River in Pisgah National Forest, or experience a wonderful play at the famous Flat Rock Playhouse. Another historic site located within just three miles from Flat Rock Playhouse is the home of American poet, writer, and editor Carl Sandburg who won three Pulitzer Prizes.

Why stay in a motel room with a TV, microwave and small fridge when you can be near to all of this and stay in a fully equipped home? Make your reservation for The Morning Glory today! We look forward to impressing you!

About Gloria

I was called "Morning Glory" as a child in school, so I felt the name fit perfectly when naming my lovely tiny house located in The Village of Wildflowers.

Gloria purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Gloria chose Upward

I owned a vacation home in Flat Rock/Hendersonville, NC several years ago and enjoyed it so much! I am so glad to be back to this truly amazing area with so much to offer and conveniently located near Everything!

What makes this cabin unique

My Morning Glory Tiny House is truly lovely! It's your "modern cabin" and has lots of high windows allowing the home to be bright and cheerful, yet also allowing for a warm and cozy feel that a cabin offers. Enjoy the large front porch with it's southern charm of real antique white wicker during the day under the shade tree. At night you will be able to enjoy watching the nearby fire pit if you had rather stay on the porch. It's only a five minute walk if you decide to join in with the fellowship and make new friends.

Morning Glory has full-sized kitchen appliances and also includes a dishwasher! Makes life easier when the outdoors or shopping is calling!! Having all of the benefits of cooking while here is wonderful, but this girl hates doing dishes!

Amazing mountain tiny house retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Gloria was amazing to work with and we went for a weekend. It is an absolutely beautiful space and everything was perfect. It is brand new and you can tell - everything is in great condition. She even has it stocked for you with the basics -- toilet paper, garbage bags, etc. Thank you for everything Gloria! You have a beautiful space and we were so glad to have a wonderful retreat to go back to after a long day of traveling and adventures. It is in the perfect spot - close to Flat Rock and Hendersonville. Tons of things to do outdoors of course but also great little shops in the different towns. We had a great visit and hope to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you. Stephanie! We were so delighted to have you! And thank you for allowing us to share in the surprise for your daughters of staying in a tiny house. I so wished I could have been there to see their faces when they went inside. We really appreciated you sending a picture of them in the loft with their bright smiles and excitement. We hope it is an experience they will share and remember for a long time. We look forward to having you back soon!

Beautiful tiny house with everything you'll need for an extended stay. Wonderful community too !

  • 5 of 5

As stated above, the house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Despite the expected small space the floor plan is well thought out, functions/flows well and feels larger than it;s 400 sq. ft. would suggest. The owner is super helpful and goes out of her way to make sure your stay is fantastic--thank you Gloria ! My wife and I liked it here so much we took the sales tour (on site) and are considering purchasing our our tiny home eventually. The tiny house "lifestyle" is one that potentially offers a new found freedom that traditional homes do not. If considering this alternative lifestyle, go stay here and you'll probably be very pleasantly surprised !!

Wonderful experience all around!

  • 5 of 5

First time using VRBO. Wonderful experience all around! Gloria went above and beyond from booking to the accommodation. Her tiny home is just perfect in every way. Everything you could ask for is there for you. It's beautifully decorated and is spacious. The entire village is very unique with all the different tiny homes. I enjoyed walking the streets daily. If you are wondering about tiny house living this is a great home to give it a stay and see for yourself.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! I so enjoyed being on the phone with you when you entered and I personally got to hear your son’s excitement when he saw the loft he would call his “special place” for the next several days. Walking around the village at night and sitting on the porch listening to the birds and tree frogs is relaxing and I’m glad you enjoyed it. I look forward to having you again soon! Gloria

Great place to take a get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 29th anniversary stay in Morning Glory. The owners are so nice and even had a card waiting for us upon arrival. Anything you need is there as they have thought of everything. Loved walking around the community of homes and seeing all of the various designs. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to experience the tiny home living. Nice walking area in Flat Rock that was previously a golf course.

Downtown Hendersonville, NC is a fun trip as well. We will be back!

Tiny Home was a Hit for us!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the tiny home experience.It was beyond our expectations. It will be a part of our retirement plan, just haven't figured out to what extent yet. Loved the quaint village where the tiny home sits and Hendersonville, which is 5 minutes away. Lovely part of the country. From Circleville, Ohio, but my heart may be in Flat Rock.

I knew you would love the village and also Hendersonville - Flat Rock area with all it has to offer. The new pool and community center are open now and will be a pleasant addition when you come back again ... hopefully soon!!
