About the property


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!

My son and I had a wonderful time staying at "Morning Glory". 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.

Outstanding Tiny Home Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in a tiny home. Gloria the owner was outstanding ! She replied to our initial reservation request very quickly and sent us several follow up emails with information about the tiny home along with information about the local attractions.

The tiny home was very clean and had everything to make the stay enjoyable. The tiny home is located in a safe area and within an easy drive to numerous activities.

Parking was right next to the home and was easy to find within the tiny home community.

The tiny home community is just down the road from I 26 .

Gloria was a wonderful host and I would recommend her tiny home to anyone staying in the area.
