The Retreat site is just east of Asheville between Swannanoa and Black Mountain off of Interstate 40. The nearest airport is Asheville, but the Tri -Cities Airport in Kingsport, TN is about 40 minutes away. Charlotte is about 2 1/2 hours away, and the airport in Spartanburg, SC is just over an hour away. Atlanta is approx. 5 hours away. Most likely you will only find non-stop service to Charlotte and Atlanta. But, make sure to check with all the airlines at each airport.

Cool mountain air and extraordinary vistas have always held an allure for travelers. Visitors drawn by an abundance of sulfur springs and invigorating mountain climate began arriving in Asheville by horseback or stagecoach almost as soon as the roads were built. By the 1850's, Asheville had established itself as a premier health resort. By the 1920's, Asheville had evolved into a vacation destination in vogue for the rich and famous - Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Today's visitors to Asheville ( known as the Paris of the South ) find an eclectic, energized and endlessly fascinating city and the mountains are still extraordinary. The Black Mountain area was also a favorite 'hang out' for Bertrand Russell, and Albert Einstein. Buckminster Fuller erected his first geodesic dome on the shore of Lake Eden not far from the Grey Eagle Lodge.
 
Home of the Cherokee - The culture and heritage of the Cherokee Indian Nation, whose hunting grounds once covered much of the South, can still be felt in Asheville and its environs. Located some 50 miles to the west is Cherokee, home to the eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation. The Cherokee called this land "Shaconage", the Place of Blue Smoke. We know it as the Great Smoky Mountains, one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth.
