Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Located in historic Druid Hills, the Sweet Retreat is conveniently situated one mile from downtown Hendersonville and about 25 minutes from Asheville and Brevard. The house was recently renovated to incorporate the many luxuries of the 21st century but maintains it's 1950's charm. It's a short walk to the Oklawaha Greenway, several restaurants and stores, and a quick scenic drive to all the beautiful spots in Western North Carolina.

The space
The house is just under 800 square feet and has 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath. Bedroom 1 has a Queen bed; Bedroom 2 has a Double bed and a Twin bed. Both rooms have full length mirrors, spacious closets, and Dohm Sleep Machines.

The full bath has a combination tub / shower which is perfect for both kids and adults. The bathroom is stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Plenty of white cotton towels can be found in the closet just outside of the bathroom. Don't worry about running out of hot water; the house has a new Rinnai tankless hot water heater that will keep your showers nice and steamy.

There's WIFI available, a Smart TV in the main living area that streams YouTubeTV (streaming cable), a DVD player, Bluetooth speaker and a charging dock. Feel free to log into Netflix or Hulu, or choose one of the many DVD's available.

The cozy living room has a small leather sofa, an upholstered chair, and a relaxing chaise lounge. Extra blankets are available in the hall closet. If you want more heat during the cooler months, feel free to use the gas fireplace. It's perfect for those chilly winter nights.

The bright, open kitchen has all new appliances, including a full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, electric range, and many cooking necessities like a blender, ice cream maker, coffee pot, and toaster. There's a small dining table that can double as a workspace if needed. Additional dining chairs are located in the closet of each bedroom.

The mudroom located in the rear of the home has a full-sized washer and dryer for guests to use during their stay as well as basic cleaning supplies should they be needed. There's a step stool that's perfect for helping small children reach the sink, a first aid kit for any small injuries, as well as a fire extinguisher should you need it (which hopefully you won't!).

The front exterior has a lovely covered porch complete with a porch swing that's perfect for morning coffee or a glass of wine. Off the back of the house, there's a fantastic deck for dining al fresco as well as a nice sized yard for relaxing in the hammocks, playing a round of corn hole, climbing on the jungle gym or grilling on the charcoal grill. In colder months, there's a gas fire pit for guests to enjoy. The back yard isn't fully fenced in but does provide a good amount of privacy.

Want to have a mini spa experience? The house comes with an essential oil diffusor for aromatherapy as well as many spa products available to try. A yoga mat is stored in the hall closet if you want to grab a quick workout. But I recommend doing a beautiful hike on one of our many trails in WNC.

Did you bring your kids? There are games in the closet as well as art supplies to keep the little ones happy. If you need sitter recommendations, I can give you those as well.

The Sweet Retreat is truly an oasis in the heart of Historic Hendersonville! Come to the mountains!

Where you’ll be

Hendersonville, North Carolina, United States

Druid Hills is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Hendersonville. Take a short walk to Joey's New York Bagels for one of the best breakfasts in town, or put on your sneakers on and head to the Greenway that spans 3.25 miles and connects several of our parks. Want to do a little shopping? Head to Honeysuckle Hollow- it's located in the neighborhood. Have children? Cross the street to Patton Park and kick a ball on one of their many fields or hit the playground or skate park. In the summer, the Olympic size pool is open and can be used for a small fee. Up for a longer walk? Downtown is only a mile away and is packed with wonderful restaurants, breweries, stores, and quintessential small town charm.
