The Heart Center sits on 30 acres of beautiful forest land and it is surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest.  The place is an old school site that was literally left to be buried by the forest, until I came along and decided to fix it up, and create a holistic sanctuary for people wishing to get away from it all. A place where one can heal, contemplate, re-energize, and relax in a quiet and pristine environment.  Feel secluded enough to experience your own inner stillness; and, yet, connected enough to enjoy many beautiful area attractions that are just minutes away such as: Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Fontana Dam and the Appalachian Trail, 20 Mile Ranger Station, Cherohala Skyway, and Santeetlah Lake! The Heart Center is about love, unity, harmony, joy and re-connecting with ourselves, others, and Mother Nature. At the Heart Center, we take special interest in providing our guests with a uniquely peaceful, positive, comfortable, and relaxing experience!  Whether you are laying on a hammock, walking the labyrinth, or just sitting on the deck taking in the sights and sounds, we want you to enjoy.

Amazing Place to Stay!
Our family stayed at Yurt #9 and really enjoyed our time. The yurt was clean and comfortable, and the outside areas surrounding the yurt was beautiful and peaceful. Having access to our own fire pit and picnic table was great. We didn't use the showers while there, but the half bathroom was super clean and nicer than you would expect. It was also really helpful to have access to their cafeteria where we could wash our dishes. The hosts were very accommodating and super nice! We were a little concerned about the low overnight temps (we had our baby with us) so Liz brought us a space heater to use in the yurt. They were so sweet and welcoming. We will definitely be back soon!

Glamping in the Smoky Mountains
The yurt was great as always. Everything was super clean and well maintained. The wifi extended a little bit further I think than the last time I stayed there :)

Inspiring and magical wonderland 💜
I stayed in a yurt on the property with my friend and we had the best experience ever! This was my first time in North Carolina and it could not have been any better. Liz and Anna were so kind and sweet to us and made us feel so welcomed. Typically when I travel, I like visiting a new place but The Heart Center is definitely somewhere I would love to visit again. I only stayed for 2 nights but I would love to come back to stay longer. Clean restrooms/shower, spacious yurt tent, so many activities, and even a hike to a creek on the property. You will without a doubt have a wonderful time with what this place has to offer. I left feeling so inspired and hopeful for the future. Don’t hesitate, book your stay!

Truly Magical Hipcamp
I loved my stay at The Heart Center. It was the mini-retreat I needed. I wish I could’ve stayed longer. Liz and Anna are phenomenal hosts - kind and caring. The yurt was lovely and the bed comfortable. You have the opportunity to relax or explore. There are hiking trails and a waterfall a quick drive away. They have several different healing arts offerings: yoga, meditation, foot detox, infrared sauna, etc. Directions to get there were clear. Communication was easy. A great opportunity to take a break from technology. You’re mostly off the grid, so be sure to download a map of that area for driving. WiFi is available near the main communal space if you need it. I can’t wait to return for a longer stay to relax, breathe, adventure, and rest. Highly recommend!

We signed up to stay in tent sight 1, but when we arrived during a thunderstorm, we decided to rent the Highlander yurt instead. It was clean, beautiful, cozy, and kept us dry and warm. Liz was friendly and welcoming, and went out of her way to accommodate us. The next morning included yoga and meditation and coffee and snacks in the cafeteria and great conversation. We feel like we have met new friends. We hope to return to this place one day!
