About Kendall Hale

I am a professional massage therapist and yoga instructor, gardener, violinist, vocalist, and spend lots of time hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I live at Sharon Spring, a family homestead with my husband and two grown children. We are bee keepers, gardeners, grow raspberries, blueberries and harvest wild blackberries all over our pastures. We make applesauce from a few apple trees, jams from the berries, and honey from our precious bees that we struggle to keep alive.

Kendall Hale purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Kendall Hale chose Asheville Area

We moved here from Boston about 20 years ago, and fell in love with the Asheville area. The magical blue mist of the mountains captured our imagination, and within a few weeks we purchased this old tobacco farm in Fairview, with its overflowing spring, song birds, flowering trees, and pastures. We love outdoor swimming, so within 2 years added a pond a dock and gazebo. It has been a labor of love, caring and re-creating this very special place to enjoy and share with our guests and visitors.

What makes this cabin unique

We lived in the original farmhouse, built a second home, and then created Sharon Spring Cabin, combining my massage skills, our love of wood burning sauna, my yoga/mediation training and our desire to create a sustainable homestead where I could host guests in a peaceful, relaxing environment close to the exiting city of Asheville.

Beautiful cabin in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

A sunny, comfortable cabin with cathedral ceilings and a dramatic view looking south toward the Bear Wallow Mt. range. Lush gardens, (including a secluded water garden) made musical by a variety of birds. A spring-fed pond with dock for swimming. Proximity to many beautiful Hikes. (We particularly liked the Laurel River trail.) A hot tub which was especially nice under a sky of stars. Options for on-site yoga and sauna. All just a few miles from downtown Asheville. Sharon Spring cabin is a beautiful place we look forward to coming back to.

Peaceful and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, peaceful and wonderful getaway that my husband and I drastically needed. We had just traveled to this lovely cabin last weekend for his birthday. We were immediately engaged in our wonderful hosting by Kendall. She really made the us and the cabin feel comfortable, clean, and peaceful. Kendall also was very informative of the area and had plenty of ideas for my husband and I to think about doing. Whether that was different hiking trails, swimming in the spring water pond, enjoying the views from the swing/pond area, using the hot tub, grilling out, reading, or experiencing downtown Asheville (which was only 15 minutes away). Included in the cabin price, we also both got a massage by Kendall as she is a licensed massage therapist. Very much needed massages. We also enjoyed the sauna which is on the first floor of the cabin. The entire place was clean and looked brand new. We were able to grille out the second night there with the grille provided along with an entire kitchen set of utensils. We did not need to bring much extra! The cabin is filled with windows so the sun was always shining inside, although there were plenty of window shades if needed. You can see unbelievable views from every window of the cabin. We will definitely be coming back next summer. Highly recommended.

Peaceful, Remote Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Kendall's Mountain Wellness Retreat was exactly what my husband and I were looking for in a vacation home. The home is set in a small town of Fairview-just 15 minutes from Asheville, and roughly 20 from Black Mountain. The best mountain biking trails my husband has ever been on was only a short drive away; the Biltmore was also just as close to the house.

The house itself was incredibly clean and has the most beautiful view of the mountains!. We made sure to utilize Kendall's yoga & massage talents which was much needed after 7 days of rock climbing, canoeing, mountain biking, and hiking.

Extended weekend trip.

  • 4 of 5

Kendall was super easy to work with. It was a easy process to book and pay for online. The place was very clean & comfortable . If we didn't have seminars to go to I would've enjoyed getting a massage. We did get to enjoy the hot tub which was wonderful! I love the birds & the quiet. But its the views are unbeatable ! I would recommend this for a any getaway or a girls trip. It's not far from Fletcher or Asheville . Good local place to eat around the corner .

Wonderful Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend getaway cabin! We were looking for a private escape in the mountains and that is what we got! Kendall was great offering freedom with the sauna treatments which was so refreshing and rejuvenating! The views were spectacular and the Local Joint had amazing breakfast! We loved the massages, which were so tailored to our individual needs and much more comprehensive than any massage we have ever gotten! This cabin was perfect for a couple needing a weekend away for de-stress. Ammenities are simple, but perfect and the hot tub was relaxing with great views and privacy! We loved being far enough outside Asheville but close enough to explore the town and eat at some awesome restaurants. We can't wait to head back!

Wonderful! So peacful and quiet. I can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

I was prepared to be very productive during my stay in the cabin; however, it was so relaxing I ended up doing nothing productive! I read, slept, and hiked. I honestly can't say what my favorite part was because it was all awesome! I also got the wellness package which included two massages and the hot stone sauna, all were amazing. Kendall was very considerate and made recommendations as to how to use the sauna and what type of massage I should get.

She also left hiking recommendations in the cabin; I hiked three of her recomendations and they were wonderful.

I enjoyed the solitude and the peace. I look forward to going back in the summer for another stay!

Trout Lily Market is a locally owned organic grocery just a mile from our property. Guests can take a short hike here, and drive 15-20 minutes to some of the most beautiful hikes ever, with sustainable family farms along the way. Chimney Rock Park is not far, and The Biltmore House is 15 minutes away. Or you can stay put, get massage, hot stone, yoga/meditation, sauna, relax in the water garden, hang out in our gazebo or hammock near the pond, swim or watch your dog enjoy the water. We also offer a beautiful outdoor wedding site.
