Butterfly Farm Sanctuary is nestled into the Smoky Mountains about 40 minutes from Asheville and 20 minutes from Waynesville, NC.  It is an intimate retreat center that offers accommodation to the hosts of its workshops as well as its owners. There is plenty of meeting space, however, for all of our participants we have booked a select number of cabins just one mile south of Butterfly Farm at the beautiful 250-acre Lake Logan Retreat Center.  We have set aside rooms for your accommodation so you do not need to search for the limited number of Airbnb's in the area. 


If you stay in a beautiful cabin at Lake Logan,  your stay will also include three meals a day at a very favorable price. Lake Logan will work with you to meet your dietary requirements.  As you will be up the road one mile during the day at Butterfly Farm, they will also pack a vegetarian lunch for you (all meals at Butterfly Farm are required to be vegetarian). No meals will be served by Butterfly Farm during the course of the event. We will provide health snacks, coffee, tea and amazing spring water!
