Hummingbird Retreat overlooks beautiful garden where the abundance of hummingbirds will delight you and your family. Watch their joyful flight over the lush flowerbeds while you enjoy coffee in the morning or a glass of wine as the sunset transforms the evening sky into brilliant shades of orange, purples, pinks, and reds. For generations artists and equestrians have flocked to the historic town of Tryon. A safe five minute stroll will take you to the downtown area which offers a wide variety of activities that include art galleries, studios, restaurants, movie theater, wine bar and the Tryon Fine Arts Center. Many attractions for all ages await to be discovered in this picturesque town. The property is located 1.5 miles from Harmon Field, which hosts equestrian events.
