Ty and I have talked with and met many wonderful new friends who have stayed with us from all over the USA, plus England, Brazil, Canada and Finland.

Ty and I have been sharing our vacation home, Retreat in the Sky, with guests for over fourteen years. It has been fun, sometimes very challenging...but most of all...a rewarding experience. Our goal is... and has always been ....to provide a wonderful vacation experience for our guests..
We fell in love with Bryson City the first time we visited. It is quaint, friendly and surrounded by beautiful mountains. We found the perfect spot to build our second home. It's close to the top of Bear Cove Mountain in the Smokies. Our view is outstanding. Retreat has a privacy that is hard to describe. Our first home is three hours away and fourteen years later, with our car packed with all our stuff, heading for Bryson City and our Retreat in the Sky, we're still excited.... after all these years, we still can't wait to get there.
Sitting on the swing on our deck...enjoying the beautiful view...is the ultimate in relaxation. Retreat in the Sky can only be reached by driving up the private road and then you drive up some more on our paved driveway. We are not on the road so no one can see us or drive by us. So you see, we also have the ultimate in privacy. We not only have a great deck filled with flowers and a beautiful landscaped setting, We're only five minutes from Ingles Supermarket and only ten minutes from just about everywhere else.
