Good to know

The Writer's Retreat was part of the Huckleberry Mountain Artists' Colony in the 1930s-40s, and you'll understand why artists congregated here the moment you arrive. The wooded mountain setting is serene and the perfect place to relax and recharge. Drink your morning coffee on the large deck next to the stream, or curl up in the overstuffed chair with a book from the large library. The Writer's Retreat is the perfect setting to escape the hustle and bustle of life and make memories. If you get tired of the peace and quiet, the cabin is a short drive to hiking, waterfalls, apple picking, vineyards, historic downtown Hendersonville, and Asheville. Check out our guidebook on Airbnb for our favorite area recommendations. The cozy king size beds are perfect for sleeping in late or taking a well deserved nap. Our beds use the Zinus Green Tea memory foam mattress (12") with 100% cotton bedding. The mattress is medium firm, which we've found to be the most comfortable for the greatest number of people. While the Writer's Retreat has been fully updated with modern conveniences, it is still a historic cabin with the quirks of an almost 100 year old house, including floors that slope and oddly placed steps and may not be suited for guests with mobility challenges. The Writer’s Retreat is not child-proofed. The Artist's Retreat has high-speed fiber internet as of August 2023. Cell service is good for most carriers. The Artist's Retreat is directly across the road from the Writer's Retreat and visible from the front porch. Consider renting both for groups of up to 8 people.

Neighborhood

Huckleberry Writer's Retreat is secluded, but not remote. You will be just 12 minutes off of I-26 (exit 49A) and all of the shopping and restaurants at the exit, including a Walmart. The cabin is just 15 minutes to historic downtown Hendersonville, 25 minutes to Chimney Rock, 30 minutes to Lake Lure, and an easy 40 minutes to downtown Asheville straight up the interstate.

Guest Access

Guests have full access to the entire property during their stay. There will never be anyone else staying on the property. Our yard maintenance crew stops by every two weeks for about 30 minutes to weed and maintain plantings. This keeps the property beautiful for our guests to enjoy. Depending on the dates of your stay, you may briefly encounter them.

WHERE YOU'LL STAY

The cabin has parking for 2 vehicles. The cabin is on a single lane gravel road that can be bumpy in places. The road is generally passable with 2WD, though weather can affect road conditions. Mountain driving can be intimidating for those unused to the roads, but you should be fine as long as you maintain steady speed (5-10mph). We strongly recommend that guests arrive for the first time before dark as it's easy to accidently turn into a neighbor's driveway in the dark.
