This is an 1,100 square foot one bedroom one bath condo with an upstairs loft, 40 foot vaulted ceilings, contemporary furniture, high end finish outs, and a view that has to be seen to be believed.

Well behaved, clean dogs are welcome if they are clean, quiet and nice to my neighbors. Please no large/aggressive breeds or cats. I don't charge a pet fee.

As of spring, 2021, I am not offering extended stays/discounts. Sorry. I want more people to enjoy the condo + I enjoy the work.

The condo is located atop one of the highest mountain peaks in eastern Northern America. It sits upon the grounds of The Art of Living Retreat Center, which (for extra charge) offers dining, Ayurvedic Spa services, yoga and meditation classes, hiking, and more. (The AOLRC is closed til March '21 due to COVID. You can still explore the grounds, but meals and programs are not offered.)

This condo serves as an awe-inspiring getaway, with breathtaking one-hundred mile views. Ideal for a couple, but there is a comfortable couch, and a twin mattress upstairs if you have children.

On heavenly mountain central air is virtually unheard of But in the summer, it can get warm in the afternoon, and there is not central air. There is a ceiling fan, and a big fan as well in the closet.

Also, there is a big desk with executive chair, laser printer and basic office supplies -- ideal for getting a lot of work done.

I am one of these guys who sits on a big pillow on the floor and take my meals on the living room table, Japanese style. Try it! You can also bring in the wicker to the kitchen island. Or, obviously, eat outside. There isn't a dining room set.

The building has 12 condos, but only a few of them are presently occupied. It is very quiet. Occasionally there is someone next door, he's super friendly and my guests like him. The front porch is spacious, but occasionally shared.

This is an end unit. So there is no need for another person to ever walk by. Thus, I have chosen not to have window enhances the view expereince. If you are super modest or private....bring a bathrobe. :)

Finally, it took me five years to find a rock star housekeeper. You could eat your breakfast out of the bath tub. But, she lives 30 miles away. Occasionally, based on her schedule, and seasonality, I may require a 3 night min.

It takes time to get oriented and see all there is to see. Late Friday night to early Sunday morning people don't get the full "experience." I'd rather have you back when you have more time. Please don't be offended if I decline a Fri-Sun request, as I am migrating towards a three night min.

The Shankara Spa is a three minute ride down the road. Call ahead, as they get busy on weekends. This is one of only a handful of authentic Aryuvedic spas in the nation. They have a steam room and fitness facilities that you can use if you are getting a treatment.

Also, there is a pottery studio just a few doors down from me. People love it -- highly recommended. I have the flyer/contact info in my condo.

The AOLRC has yoga and meditation classes daily, by appointment in the big yellow dining hall, and every evening, a kirtan jam session open to everyone. There's also a very nice gift shop and a spiritual book store and a small coffee shop. If nothing else, walk over there and stand on the porch -- for one of the best views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, anywhere.

I purchased this condominium during a four year hiatus from the corporate world, where I embarked on a bucket list adventure to visit the most sacred places on the planet, and acquire the highest knowledge. From the Himalayas and the Ganges River to Machu Picchu, to Kauai, Joshua Tree, Vietnam, and The Black Forrest of Germany. My journey eventually led me to Heavenly Mountain, in Boone, NC, where I was on the "steering committee" to build and market what is now the Art of Living Retreat Center, reporting directly to Sri Sri. Yes, Boone, North Carolina, an International spiritual epicenter. The Blue Ridge Mountains--and this area in particular -- are considered to be among the most sacred mountains on earth. Older than the Himalayas, they are composed almost entirely of granite, which is a natural energy conductor. Many people claim they can feel the energy, and meditators flock here for this reason. The Cherokee Indians held ceremony on Heavenly Mountain for centuries to honor the change of seasons. Even the most cynical admit to feeling something after a day or two up here. And a week will set you straight for several months. My summer volunteer assignment turned into two years. This condo served as my sanctuary, where I was able to write, do volunteer work, connect with nature and discover a deeper sense of purpose for the next chapter of my life. Mission accomplished! To say that I enjoyed my time here would be a massive understatement. It is my pleasure to pay it forward and share this extraordinary place with you. I have recently relocated to Dallas, TX, where I am an Communications Trainer. I wanted to live closer to my mother, who inspires me daily, and I crave the energy of a big city as well as the seclusion of the countryside. I am a live music nut, and still seek out the best summer music and yoga festivals. Other passions include Border Collies, Thai and Indian cuisine, fly fishing, mountain biking, hiking up waterfalls, the Denver Broncos, John Steinbeck, Tony Robbins, the Allman Brothers, Dead and Company, the Head and the Heart, Van Morrison, Krishna Das, and (obviously) the ancient wisdom teachings of the East, including Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Yogananda, Eckart Tolle and Barron Baptiste. (my library is kept stocked for your enjoyment) I return to Boone frequently to rest, rejuvenate and recharge the batteries...and of course to escape the Texas heat.
