About the property

This property is a short drive to the Tryon International Equestrian Center

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. It will also allow the travelers access to tennis courts, a walking track, and a fitness trail that meanders next to the Pacolet River. The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (Fence), hosts many equestrian events and will allow the traveler access to over 5 miles of nature trails. The Tryon International Equestrian Center will host the World Equestrian Games in September of 2018, and is located a short 18 minute drive from this property. It is the perfect location for family to enjoy time together with many activities in the surrounding area. A short mountain drive will take you to the historic town of Saluda where you may want to challenge yourself with a zip line adventure. Asheville, Spartanburg and Greenville are less than an hour away.

This is the downstairs of a one and one half story home. The upstairs is occupied by a full-time resident and a cat. The private entrance to the downstairs is located at the back of the home through a covered porch. Parking is adjacent to the entrance which also includes a carport. Backyard has patio with table and chairs for al fresco dining. The interior features spacious living room with an adjoining study that is set up as a sleeping den, it also has a 40 inch flat screen with DVD player and lots of comfortable seating. The dining room is across from the living room and features a six foot table that accommodates eight chairs and a bar station equipped with glassware for all occasions. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining room and is equipped with all you will need for preparing meals and snacks. There is a separate sink area for extra prep space off of the main kitchen.

The World Equestrian games will be coming to Tryon Sept. 2018. For the month of Sept. 2018 both stories of this home will be available. Rates differ for Sept. 2018 (please see rates and availability). During the games, with the inclusion of the upper story, the property will be able to accommodate up to 10 guests. The upper story can accommodate up to 4 people, it also has an attached 3 piece bath, and private entrance which includes a large screen-in-porch. This property would be ideal if traveling with your horse trainer as it has a separate entrance. The experience of staying at Hummingbird Retreat, will leave you cared for and well rested. Let me know if special requests are needed prior to your arrival. I look forward to your visit!

We loved our stay there!

The owner was a joy to meet and the home was perfect for what we needed. The owner had the house dining room table set for when we arrived and the home is bright, and cheerful.

It was clean, comfortable, and right for our needs.

I would tell anyone I knew to stay there.

Plenty of room, very clean and well furnished

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our three nights at this charming and well-kept house. It is unusually large, especially the living room and dining room, along with two good-sized bedrooms. Well-furnished and comfortable throughout, plenty of kitchenware and place settings for dining. The owner is hospitable and will go out of her way to make sure you have what you need. While a brief road closure blocked the usual route to the house, she called, came and found us, and guided us "the back way" in.

Only one huge problem....and that was a fault of our own...We didn't give ourselves time to enjoy this little haven in Tryon NC. It was perfect for us three friends. Was exactly as the pictures on her web page. Eva Martin
