Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A peaceful retreat easy on the eyes. Art and nature are everywhere, inside and out. Our place just North of Asheville, is in an entirely private and wooded setting. We are 6 miles from Asheville; well known for its art, beer, culture, outdoor playgrounds, and excellent restaurants. Mountain Tea is a quiet respite from busy days of doing and seeing in the Asheville area. We just added an outdoor shower with a rainfall showerhead!

Thank you for considering Mountain Tea for your upcoming trip.

The space
We are 15 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and a quarter mile from the French Broad River. A favorite of kayakers and tuber. An accessible spot to put in is Ledges Whitewater Park about a mile from us.

My husband, Mark and I are visual artists. Included in the center of our long-planned dream studio is a private guest area that has a gallery/living room area, dining table, kitchenette, private bedroom w/ queen size bed, and a full bathroom with footed tub.

The setting is tranquil and private. Suitable for couples, business travelers, and adventurers. You will have a private secure entrance to your space which opens to an extended 96' tree-top deck and seating area.

Guest access
You will need a car to get around. Our dirt driveway is short but steep and winding. A four-wheel drive vehicle is best. Front wheel drive is a minimal must. Slow and steady will get you there. However, you do have the option to walk. There is a parking spot at the bottom of the driveway. We are also happy to pick you up. You will be staying in three private rooms - the gallery/living room/kitchenette, a separate bedroom, a full bathroom with footed tub and an expansive deck. The living room area opens to a tree level deck with chairs. Parking is available right next to the studio. The living room has a TV, DVD player, coffee maker, elec tea kettle, microwave, toaster, and a compact refrigerator with freezer. Plates and utensils are provided, along with coffee and tea. There is a small library of books and DVDs along with a selection of board games.

A small, private group of families live off this short dirt lane. We share the main road (Mountain Tea Lane) that is not two-way and is a dead end. Take care when leaving and returning to Mountain Tea Lane and please yield to oncoming cars where space permits.

My husband, Mark, and I are full-time visual artists and retired art educators. We built our dream studio and retired to Asheville a few years ago. We love sharing our mountain top with people who choose to experience Asheville and surrounding area but prefer to retreat to a secluded space in the treetops at the end of a busy day. Please join us. Best, Kristy
