Perched up high in the bank of trout-stocked Spring Creek, directly on Fowler's Bend (an almost 90 degree bend in the creek) sits this fully-restored home built in 1900.

This one bedroom and bathroom is RUSTIC and SIMPLE with one dedicated PARKING spot. Exposed BRICK walls greet you in both the bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom is shower only, but the water is hot. This is a great place for anyone looking for a base for an outdoor adventure or anyone looking to RECONNECT with NATURE.

The space
Originally used as the local General Store, this property is now 3 units. The HIDE AWAY is a sweet little corner, second level unit in the back, but with direct access to the road. Sit on your porch to hear the RUSHING WATERS of a 20-30 foot wide creek and soak in the crisp mountain air. Across the road and up a steep bank sits almost 7,500 acres of Pisgah NATIONAL FOREST. The Appalachian Trail is 200 feet as the crow flies, but best navigated by the paved roads.

What I love best about this little nook is the proximity to town, mineral springs, the Appalachian Trail, rafting and more! The sounds of the creek heard from the front porch help create a white noise for the soundtrack of your stay. Nature helps soothe any kinks you may have packed in with you, so that when you leave, you can feel more vibrant and centered within yourself. Let these old mountains and this incredible creek cradle you and lull you back into a relaxing state, or help get you refocus your energy for an existing or future project.

For those who love to hike or walk (or who want to avoid trying to find parking in the small town of Hot Springs) in 10 minutes you can be at the Appalachian Trailhead or in the Town of Hot Springs to dine or shop, tube, etc. and in approx. 15-20 minute you can be soaking in your own reserved tub at the hot mineral springs (or about a 2-3 minute drive).

Enjoy the pitch black nights, filled with incredible stars. Whether coming for a peaceful retreat, the restorative mineral springs or for an outdoor adventure extravaganza, the HIDE AWAY at Fowler's Bend serves as a solid base for all your endeavors.

Traveling for pleasure, for me, is all about getting out of my routine and exploring a destination, being outdoors, or simply just being in my own space. I am a horrible tourist! I would much rather be outside at a cafe observing people in the street than in a museum, and have learned to enjoy spontaneity on vacation or in an experience. How else do you leave room for some amazing opportunities and perhaps fun stories later down the road? Although I was raised in the Western North Carolina mountains, I left at a young age never thinking I would come back . . . EVER. I have lived in many places and have had the privilege of some amazing travel experiences internationally - off the gringo path in Peru, living above an artist's gallery in Indonesia, going to school in the Loire Valley in France, hiking into an active volcano in Nicaragua . . . the privilege was not about the places I stayed, but in the people I encountered who helped ignite my soul in some way or uncover what living is truly about. All of my travels and experiences have brought me back to this mystical and magical mountainous wonderland. And now I wish to share it with you!
