House - Private room · Mimosa Dr, Asheville, NC 28806, United States

The Space

Greetings, my name is Rosemary, and I am a teacher of natural healing who believes that there are no “incurable” illnesses. I spent 11 years confined to a wheelchair. Doctors told me I would never walk or talk again. This was me when I weighed over 300 pounds. You can read about my remarkable improvement (recovery?) from Multiple Sclerosis, as I have written a few books on the subject.

I can provide you with natural healing instruction at daily, weekly, or monthly rates. Although I can help with almost all conditions, weight loss is my personal favorite!

Experience a weekend retreat drinking delicious freshly prepared juices and eating organic, gourmet raw food meals prepared by a raw food cook... me! You will learn to prepare foods that will help you heal. We will walk together and exercise in ways that are customized for your body.

This is a simple private home, not a staffed spa, so things are modest and basic. Programs are not pre-planned in a one-size-fits-all manner. I will access your individual needs, then design an easy, healing program for you to follow, both while here, and when you return home. You learn by leisurely assisting and casually doing. My ordeal has taught me a lot about natural healing, and I would love to share it with you. I personally work with you one-on-one.

The price includes lodging, all meals, and instruction for one person. Add $50 per night for a second person. Outside services such as professional colonics and massages can be arranged, but must be paid for separately.

The bus stops nearby, and you can walk 1 block to the park and swimming pool. This is a very old and safe neighborhood, perfect for single female travelers. There is a wheelchair ramp, as I have personally experienced being disabled for a long time myself.

Conveniently located only 3 miles from downtown Asheville, this chic, artsy bedroom can accommodate 1 or 2 visitors. Comfortable twin size beds (with all the trimmings) await you. House is light, bright and sunny, especially your room with its south-facing windows. There are hardwood floors, a washer & dryer, cable TV, DVD player, and wireless internet.

Asheville has much to offer, so it's no wonder that our president, dignitaries, and celebrities vacation here. This cozy home is located in the heart of it all. It takes less than ten minutes to drive downtown to hear (or join in with) drummers at the drumming circle, shopping and spectacular restaurants. Less than ten minutes to trendy Haywood Rd. with its great restaurants, bars, coffee and tea houses, local beer breweries, theaters, music, and much more. Ten minutes get you to the River Arts District, where local artisans will dazzle and seduce you with their creativity.

Smoking must be done outdoors in the shaded sitting area. For healing purposes, no pets are allowed, The bathroom is shared, and there is plenty of well-lighted off-street parking.

It is said in natural healing circles that the cure to being sick is to simply get healthy, then the body will heal itself. Contact me to find out how you can get healthy and let your body heal itself.

  • I loved staying here, the house is very nice, bright and clean. The bed was comfortable - I slept so good ! There is ample room for parking, and very close to lots in town - Asheville has so much to offer.

    If you are looking for a peaceful and nice place to stay in town, I highly recommend staying at Rosemary's. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her, she is an amazing and inspiring person.

  • My time at Rosemary's was great. Her house is quaint; she has a pleasant spirit and good energy. I liked the openness and the lightness of her space, the subtle smell of incense when I came into the living room, how clean her fridge was, and how uncluttered her space.

    She was totally willing to either allow me my space to come and go as I pleased or to hang out with me and show me around the area. We did the latter. We ate out at a couple really nice vegetarian restaurants, did some shopping and went for a ride. She was not only a great hostess but she became a friend. I will definitely stay with her again the next time I am in Asheville!

  • Rosemary is a kind host with an amazing story, I only wish that I had more time to get to know her. Her home is clean, bright and quaint with an artistic vibe. I love her respect for nature and that she has a very chemical free home and lifestyle. I slept very well each night of my stay and enjoyed being so close to everything in Asheville.

  • Very sweet lady and welcome us with open arms.

  • I had a wonderful time at her place. She made sure I had everything and was extremely warm and friendly. Would definitely live here again and would recommend that everyone do so too! Her house is close to the bus stop and fifteen minutes (by bus) from downtown so the location was fairly convenient.

  • Rosemary was great!. My flight was delayed so I ended up arriving much later than I planned and had to wake up Rosemary to let me into her home. She did not mind my late arrival at all On the contrary, she was very understanding and welcoming.

  • Rosemary is sweet, laid back, and kind. The house is super cute and the bed is comfy. It was a great place to come back to after long days at a convention. Just has a really fun, relaxed time staying at Rosemary's place. Highly recommended!

  • I enjoyed my stay with Rosemary. She is kind and helpful with all sorts of Asheville info-especially healthy and wonderful restaurants! She is" close to everything Asheville" but I had a car and easy access to the main roads. I suggest you have a car if you want to get around.

  • Rosemary is a lovely and interesting person, and was a warm host. The accommodations are quite modest, and I suspect two guests would feel they needed more room, especially if their stay was longer than a day or two. A closet is available across the hall; and the bedroom has a large dresser. Some spaces are shared (bathroom, kitchen) but this was never a problem. The bedroom is clean and bright, and the bedding more than warm enough for cool nights. The location is in West Asheville, so one needs to drive into the center city, but parking downtown is readily available and cheap. Altogether I had a lovely stay and was glad to have selected this accommodation.

Greetings! I am a writer and public speaker. I write about health and natural healing. I have an obsession with it, and love to teach it to others without being dogmatic or preachy about it. Physically - I'm still a beautiful teenager on the inside ... 50-ish on the outside. I like swimming, working jigsaw puzzles and shooting pool. I love to hear live music and dance! That's why I host a jam session in my back yard on weekends. What fun that is! Asheville has some AMAZING musicians! Spiritually - I am a light, mystical, and peaceful soul. I meditate daily, and seek spiritual growth. My spirit soars in these beautiful mountains. I love it here in AWESOME ASHEVILLE! Mentally - I am sound. I like to surround myself with good friends and laugh a lot. I attend and give parties often. I love nature, and gardening helps me keep my feet on the ground ... literally. Emotionally - I am loving and giving, a nurturer by nature. I am known to anticipate the needs of others before they know for themselves. That's why I make a great host!
