Hidden deep in a secluded mountain cove in the Pisgah National Forest, 35 minutes north of Asheville, Mountain Light Sanctuary is a mini Shangri-La nestled in the world of nature. Bordered by two cascading creeks and ringed by the highest mountains in the eastern USA, It's energy and ambiance are purely magical.Our beautiful grounds include a stone circle, open fields, manicured flower beds, wooded areas. Guests find that Mountain Light is a great place for individual and group activities. Some folks are contented to spend the day with a good book or lying in a hammock and watch the clouds drift by. For the more adventurous a dip in the icy creek is just want they need. Hiking the endless miles of trails into the national forest is always an adventure of discovery and sitting around a camp fire is the perfect way to end the day.We offer a variety of accommodations to fit every taste & budget:Elfhaven LodgeFive bedrooms, two baths, a communal kitchen, and a wrap around porch, outdoor cafe for self-prepared meals, terrace overlooking our Japanese garden, gazebo and sun deckSheltersEleven very unique outdoor shelters overlooking our cascading mountain streams; Some enclosed and heated, some with only three walls and unheated.
