The Personal Retreat at Walden Pond

Come and relax and let nature do its work without any extra interference. Feel free to bring your own journals, art supplies, books, etc. Support will be available if you need it, but the basic retreat allows you to simply get the space you need while staying as a guest in the Walden Pondhouse. The Pondhouse has two main rooms- the upstairs sleeping loft and study, and the downstairs kitchenette. Bring your own food so you don’t have to leave the property! Fresh filtered spring water is pumped through the house. Special nooks in shade or sun, inside or out, whatever suits your desire as you relax and reflect. The pond is spring fed and clear (although reflects green in photos due to trees) and is perfect for a swim in the warm weather!

The retreat is conveniently located only a few miles from downtown Hendersonville but is a mile from any roads. The only sounds you will hear will be that of the birds, the wind, and the nearby waterfall. If you’re eager to get out for more exploration of the mountains, you will be close to Dupont Forest (land of waterfalls) and the Pisgah Ranger District for great hiking! We will be happy to provide you with all sorts of wonderful local information.
