We had a grand time during our stay at Sadie’s Retreat!


We had a grand time during our stay at Sadie’s Retreat! A roomy comfortable serene place is just what we needed to get away from it all. To cap off all the wonderful things NC has to offer, the deer, sun rises, sunsets and hummingbirds (not to mention the Monarchs too!) were glorious! While staying at Sadie’s Retreat, we ventured out many areas. First there was Asheville & the LaZoom tour. Then dinner at Limonies – spectacular food! The tour is a must do! Then there was Chimney Rock & hiking. Again, spectacular and awe inspiring. Lake Lure Beach – beautiful. Tubing down the French Broad River – Amazingly fun. A little treacherous yet fun. The town of Chimney Rock – a must do & don’t forget River Walk & a ice cream at Hershey’s Yummy! We took the Cherokee Excursion to Cherokee, NC. A bit of a distance but well worth it. There is a lot to be seen, especially if you’re a history lover. The Pisgah Forest is beautiful and if you are here in the summer you must go to the Sliding Rock. It is a natural water slide that is 60 feet high and goes into a 50 foot swimming hole! Kids love it! It was great having Ingles right up the road!

We ran out of time and had to leave but we will return to continue crossing off our “Bucket List” of things we’d like to do in North Carolina!
Thank you for sharing your home with us!

PS I loved my cabin vacation – thanx for the use of the bed, bowls, & toys – Sadie! Great porch to sleep, rest, watch deer & just plain relax on – great yard to explore. Buried a new bone in the house for next lucky dog to find. Nice to have a place that welcomes us dogs!
