Welcome to Butterfly Farm Sanctuary, a small spiritual retreat center for people committed to their own inner transformation. Nestled on 22 acres along a river in the Smoky Mountains near Asheville, NC, we offer a vegetarian-only refuge for people looking to rest, reflect, re-energize, heal, create, vision, dream, or any combination of the above. We are especially interested in hosting people involved in work that is changing the planet. No dogs or children (the photo is of our dog), please.

While it feels completely surrounded by nature, Butterfly Farm is situated just 15 minutes south of Waynesville, NC, a scenic town with many fine restaurants, art galleries, grocery stores and outdoor apparel and hiking stores. While you will feel you are in a natural paradise here on the farm, you will be only a quick drive to the local coffee shop. Asheville is another popular destination which is just a short 40 minute drive.

35 minutes away is Asheville, NC. It is a dynamic mountain town that attracts many visitors from around the world. We would be happy to share our favorite spots as well answer any specific questions you may have. Asheville is often named as one of the top cities in America to live in.

The Asheville airport is an easy 40-minute drive.

Stella and I are committed to playing a role - large or small does not matter- in raising consciousness on the planet by helping others discover their own beauty and by being part of the global learning community dedicated to growing together consciously, both with each other and nature. This is what led us to create the sanctuary and to help each other in the same way through our relationship. If you are drawn here, we offer multiple ways to engage with us and the beautiful and powerful land here in the Smokies. We are happy to leave you to explore by yourself (personal retreats), work with you during your stay (customized retreats), or work with couples seeking to find more ways learn to be happy together. We are committed to each guest having a transformative experience. We are gentle, insightful, and compassionate people who find our lives are filled with beauty and joy and want to share it with others.
