Celesterra is a spiritual retreat treehouse for people feeling the need to experience deep rest and contemplation, healing from grief, a new direction in life, a more powerful connection with nature and/or yourself, a vision you wish to clarify, etc.. To spend time in retreat here, you MUST include two or three paragraphs about why your heart is calling you here. Also, please let us know you have read the description and agree to our guidelines. This is a magical place for your retreat!

The space
Celesterra is a 230 sq. ft. sacred space that floats between earth and sky about 15 feet off of the ground. Built by the television show Treehouse Masters, it is a beautiful, serene space that is cozy, warm and inviting. PLEASE NOTE: All food and cooking are strictly vegetarian with no garlic or onions (so the next guests might be able to appreciate the space as well). No meat on the land at all, please.

Celesterra features a beautiful living area with wood stove and leather club chairs, a dining table, fully stocked kitchenette and a bathroom with a composting toilet. IT HAS NO RUNNING WATER, but glorious spring water is supplied for drinking, washing dishes and cleaning hands. There is a full bathroom available in the main house exclusively for your use (about a three minute walk - try a walking meditation back and forth each day!). It features a beautiful walk-in shower and flushing toilet and sink with hot and cold water. You can restock up on water there, or walk about 1 minute from the treehouse to where the spring overflows into the creek and fill up there. Celesterra also features a large front deck with fabulous views of the mountains.

The bedroom is located in a loft above the kitchen area. It features a queen size memory foam mattress (like a cloud), with all natural bedding. It is accessed by a 9-foot ladder. If you have physical limitations, using the ladder might prove difficult for you, please let us know. See photos included here or we can send photos.

This is a wonderfully quiet space that enhances your meditations, reflections and relaxation. Only serious intentions to do deep personal work will be considered. We ask for 7 days notice before booking, but apply if you feel a deep need to come within the 7 day limit. Also, we are happy to discuss financial costs for retreats longer than a week. We will try and work with you in any way to help make this a transformational experience.

NO DOGS, please. We have a hunting dog, Winston (rescue) who is human friendly but not dog friendly. Also, while we love the energy of children, we do not allow them to come on retreat.

Canton, North Carolina, United States

Butterfly Farm Sanctuary is accessed by crossing a 1920's steel truss bridge. We love this bridge for it signifies a time to let go of the jet stream you are in and simplify your time here with the land. The 22-acre Sanctuary is surrounded by more than 4,000 acres of state and national forest, great for longer hikes up the mountain.

Just up the road about a twelve minute drive is the Blue Ridge Parkway with extensive views of the Smoky Mountain range. Also nearby are miles and miles of national and state-maintained trails (a short 10 to 15-minute drive). There are many waterfalls within easy hiking distance from parking.

The road from which you turn onto the property is a designated scenic highway and many cyclists can be seen enjoying its outdoor beauty. A mile back toward Waynesville is the Lake Logan Episcopal Retreat center, which affords beautiful views of the lake. There are also many available spots on the property for contemplation.

We also offer two other Airbnb possibilities that are open year-round, known as EarthSeed and Cocoon. You can view EarthSeed by going to this link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/14135971. You can view Cocoon by going to this link: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/14135971

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.

During your stay

Along with our beautiful Treeing Walker coon hound Winston (rescue), either Stella or Charlie will be available to greet you when you arrive. One or both of us will be on the property during your stay and will be happy to answer questions, give directions, get into deep spiritual conversations, or make recommendations of places to visit, should you have any needs arise. If you would like to arrange a private coaching session, please let us know as soon as you have determined this so we can make it happen.
