Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Taproot Sanctuary is an enchanted mountain retreat, surrounded by stunning views and vast intact forest, only 35 minutes from downtown Asheville.
A perfect escape from busy life for those wishing to venture a bit out of town.
Our charming woodland home nestles right within the tree canopy, backed into the Big Ivy Pisgah National Forest. Rejuvenate in this incredibly peaceful retreat imbued by a melodious orchestra of birds and insects. Relax on the swing with a warm brew or refreshing beverage.

The space
The Woodland Chalet's elegant design offers a spacious feel in a 12x12 footprint with a ladder accessible 8x10 sleeping loft. Enjoy the forest immersion from the deck or cozy up inside. These accomodations are accessed by 150 feet of inclining footpath from the closest parking spot. There is a heater for colder months, a fan for warmer months. We provide organic coffee, half & half, and assorted teas. The kitchen is equipped with delicious spring water plumbed right to the sink, a small fridge, 2 burner propane stove, toaster oven, grill, French press for coffee, small tea pot and the basics to create a farm fresh meal if inclined. A quaint dining nook includes two stools and a fold-down table. There is a small washroom with a mini sink and flush toilet. PLEASE ONLY FLUSH TOILET PAPER DOWN THE TOILET TO AVOID MAJOR PROBLEMS. The outdoor shower is private and includes plenty of on-demand hot water along with basic body care products. We require strict use of only biodegradable products, as drains utilize a simple greywater system. (We keep the shower OFF if the temperatures remain below freezing for over 24 hours, otherwise we guide guests on how to use the valve system during winter months.) All natural products maintain the cleanliness of this space.

There is an outdoor fire pit area that guests enjoy using during dry weather. We encourage folks to pick up a bundle of seasoned wood from a grocery store on there way here if they intend to have fires. Please be careful to burn only during non windy and not too dry conditions and always make sure the fire is out before leaving the space unattended.

I father three wonderful daughters, Myrika, Azalea and Emerald with my wife, Jen. I spend most of my days designing and building human dwellings that bring the natural world into the home space. I also enjoy the company of my children, family & friends, as well as outdoor adventure, finely crafted beer and a diversity of music and performances.
