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!

I’m sure your daughter loved the loft! It was also fun reading your post in the journal that your mom is now hooked on tiny house living : ) it truly is exciting. We look forward to having you girls come again!

                                                                    Hope to come back many times!

With all the windows and great layout the home feels very spacious. It definitely exceeded our expectations. Gloria went out of her way to make sure our little vacation was perfect.

Gloria made the process simple and was quite helpful in providing us with information on the local places to visit. This tiny house blew my mind away. It's well kept, clean and very comfortable. It's very well situated close to everything. I will highly recommend to anyone interested in staying in such a unique and wonderful place. Thank you Gloria for your hospitality and allowing us to be a guest in your beautiful home. Happy New Year!!! Brian and Peter from Miami, Florida.
