Easy access year round. Located near many mountain attractions.
Nantahala Spiritual Retreat (NSR) has been created by Steve Dean and Bobbie Ammons (Kriya Yogis) to offer a unique meditational experience in the mountain wilderness of the Nantahala National Forest.
NSR is located near the back of Old Happy Top Cove, on Apple Tree Creek, at 3,300 ft elevation. The area is also known as Lost Silver Mine, where legends of Cherokee wagons full of silver were hid, and have never been found to this day.
There is a mountaintop view on the property, as well as three creeks.
The Nantahala Spiritual Retreat (NSR) has easy road access all year long. Swain Lane is paved up to the property. The driveway is well-packed gravel for a short distance. The two story barn, as well as the Hemlock House are not accessible to guests. The owners, Steve Dean and Bobbie Ammons may be in residence at the Hemlock House, but you will most likely never know they are there.
Interaction with guests
Steve, and/or, Bobbie sometimes reside on the property in the larger Hemlock House. Guests can schedule meditation instruction, or attend spiritual classes on health and well-being when available, or by special request. Nantahala Spiritual Retreat provides a non-denominational environment, where Christian values are honored and embraced.
Other things to note
You may occasionally see the neighbors driving down the road. They are very pleasant and are not a bother.
Please do not leave food outside or in your car, as there are wild animals who may be attracted to it. Please do not feed the goldfish or frogs in the fish ponds.
