Located at the headwaters of Highland Lake,  the Sanctuary offers a perfect setting retreats, workshops and special events.

Just 30 minutes from Asheville and a short drive from historic Hendersonville, the Sanctuary caters to individuals and groups who are looking for a beautiful and sacred space.

The Sanctuary’s soaring, timber-framed meeting space with cathedral ceiling, Palladian windows and a wrap-around porch invites the senses to participate with nature. 

The lake is visible from the grounds and the garden has been lovingly created to blend delicately with the surrounding environment.

On the lower level, the generous dining area can seat 60 people. An adjoining warming kitchen provides the essentials for a catering staff.

For lodging the Retreat House sleeps fifteen (in small but private accommodations), and 1,2 and 3 bedroom cottages in the Garden Hamlet Cottages are available through Highland Lake Properties.
