Spent a couple days in Zelda’s Retreat while waiting for friends to arrive in Asheville. Beautiful location and the suite was just what we needed to relax. Breakfast was wonderful and the Saturday night music on the patio was so enjoyable. Would highly recommend for anyone traveling to the area!

Our favorite thing about Zelda’s Retreat is the private patio at the top of the main house. In the evening, sit out with a beverage for your own personal happy hour. This two bedroom suite also offers the perfect getaway nap spot in the extra room if you’re in need of a little extra rest.
