Welcome to our Special Events

Your Hub for Private Special Events

The right space can make or break an event. An event space is more than its structure or land, it’s a backdrop to create meaningful memories.

Whether it’s exchanging vows, performing an initiation, or teaching, an event space acts as a vessel for you to create incredible moments.

At Wheel Of Bliss, we understand the importance of maintaining a clear vessel.

Since 2016, we have been exactly that to spiritual leaders, wellness coaches, group leaders, and business executives the world over.

Hidden away in Blue Ridge and enveloped by national forest, Wheel of Bliss is the perfect space for an intimate gathering. Read on to find out about our mountain sanctuary for events in Hot Springs, North Carolina.

Accommodations and Amenities

Peace meets comfort with 16 beds, 4 cots, and 8.5 bathrooms when booking all buildings. The Bliss House includes a full kitchen, sauna, jacuzzi (1-2 persons maximum), 5.5 bathrooms, and private deck overlooking the mountain range. The Celestial Hall includes a kitchen and 3 baths/showers.

Within The Bliss House, you’ll find our stunning altar room that includes space for 10+ in seated meditation. For larger events, you can utilize the outdoor deck and surrounding grounds at The Bliss House, or the wide open space of The Celestial Center (yurt retreat) that can house well over 40 people.

Outside, the 63-acre Hot Springs land and hundreds of acres of national forest calls to you with adventurous hiking trails, crystal-clear streams, rushing waterfalls, and unexpected delights.

What Our Guests Think
About Wheel of Bliss


We planned a team bonding time with a group, and the place truly met our expectation. We had the best time ever and looking forward to using Colin's place again. Great host and awesome caretaker "Rob"



We just spent a weekend at this beautiful retreat center. It is the perfect location to disconnect from all the distractions of the world and enjoy the solitude.  Colin was very communicative and orderly. Everything was prompt and response time was impressive.  Rob, the grounds keeper, was fantastic. Very nice and personable, made contact once and we only heard from him if we reached out, but there really was no need as they had everything setup from the beginning.  Highly, highly recommend this location if you need room for a large group, and want to disconnect and focus on each other.



This space holds such pure magic and love. It was absolutely perfect for our group of 12 women for a Rebirthing experience. The trails are stunning, and the home is cozy and well stocked. We are so blessed to have found this space and plan to return again and again!



A lovely, secluded part of the world. Very comfortable accommodations. Communication with the host was incredibly smooth, prompt and courteous. Definitely recommend for large groups wanting to retreat and unplug.
