The Bliss House

Your Hidden Home In The Mountains

There are many retreat centers across North Carolina. However, there’s only one Bliss House.

If you’re looking for something close to the city, this probably isn’t the retreat center for you. Roughly an
hour from the center of Asheville, Bliss House is nestled deep within Pisgah National Forest.

A sacred space cultivated across time, Bliss House gives the space to connect to nature and divinity.

Surround Yourself In the Tranquility of Nature

The scenic beauty of Bliss House brings you closer to nature in a way that heals.

Experience the pristine beauty and majesty of hundreds of acres of national forest. Bathe in fresh spring water, visit nearby hiking trails, or lead your retreat in a group meditation practice on Bliss House’s large outdoor deck. Or, do it all.

Experience a
Sacred Space

Having hosted countless retreats over the years, Bliss House has cultivated a sacred space perfect for finding serenity and transformation.

From the large practice space within Bliss House filled with sacred Himalayan effigies to the quiet of the natural world atop the large outdoor deck, you’ll find many places perfect for group spiritual practice of all kinds.

Deep in the mountains of Blue Ridge, The Bliss House is also the ideal choice for those looking to hold a secluded retreat. Suitable for both a short group meditation weekend or a longer spiritual retreat.
