The Space

Nantahala Spiritual Retreat (NSR) has been created by Steve Dean and Bobbie Ammons (Kriya Yogis) to offer a unique meditational experience in the mountain wilderness of the Nantahala National Forest. NSR is located near the back of Old Happy Top Cove, on Apple Tree Creek, at 3,300 ft elevation. The area is also known as Lost Silver Mine, where legends of Cherokee wagons full of silver were hid, and have never been found to this day. There is a mountaintop view on the property, as well as three creeks.

Guest Access

The Nantahala Spiritual Retreat (NSR) has easy road access all year long. Swain Lane is paved up to the property. The driveway is well-packed gravel for a short distance. The two story barn, as well as the Hemlock House are not accessible to guests. The owners, Steve Dean and Bobbie Ammons may be in residence at the Hemlock House, but you will most likely never know they are there.

Interaction with Guests

Steve, and/or, Bobbie sometimes reside on the property in the larger Hemlock House. Guests can schedule meditation instruction, or attend spiritual classes on health and well-being when available, or by special request. Nantahala Spiritual Retreat provides a non-denominational environment, where Christian values are honored and embraced.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is Old Happy Top. The roads are paved and easy walking beside meadows, forests and occasional houses. There are not very many people who live in the immediate area. You commonly see deer and turkey, and you might see grouse, owls, turtles, bear and ospreys. The general rule of thumb with wild animals, is that if you do not bother them, they will not bother you. Remember, these are wild animals. Enjoy them at a distance, please.

Getting Around

Personal car is the normal transportation. Four wheel drive is not necessary.

Other Things to Note

You may occasionally see the neighbors driving down the road. They are very pleasant and do not bother anyone. Please do not leave food outside or in your car, as there are wild animals who may be attracted to it. Please do not feed the goldfish or frogs in the fish ponds.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
