Who can resist a riverfront estate with a stable-turned-spa? Set within the Blue Ridge Mountains and an easy drive from Hendersonville, and Asheville, North Carolina, Horse Shoe Farm is an ideal location for an in-person corporate gathering. The estate’s 85 acres are edged by the French Broad River, while the location’s proximity to Asheville Regional Airport makes it convenient for both commercial and private flights.

Transformed from a 1950s cattle ranch into an exclusive retreat by the Turchin family after acquiring the property in 2017, accommodations include eight luxury vacations homes, a selection of cottages and a loft that together can house up to 61 guests. Expansive areas for corporate retreats and private events include more than 12,000 square feet of climate-controlled spaces for groups of 10–450 people, catering services, audiovisual rentals, and meeting and break-out spaces for team building and socializing. Utilize the farm’s own ball fields, bike paths and walking trails, or gather around a crackling fire to brainstorm while enjoying drinks and s’mores.

Water-based activities including stand-up paddleboarding and fishing are available, along with a contemplative labyrinth and organic farm and garden. Dining is under the direction of Executive Chef Shane McAnelly, who hails from California wine country and brings a strong focus on farm-to-table dining.

When your team is ready to relax, head to the spa. The farm’s rustic stable complex has been converted into a cozy, tranquil setting of wood and rich textiles to evoke a classic ranch vibe. Along with a selection of holistic wellness retreats such as the Crystal Woo Woo Mini-Retreat, guests can sign up for classes in Mystical Yoga, Breath Oneness & The Gong, and a Forest Bath & Nature Therapy Immersion. The spa menu offers therapies and services, including massage, acupuncture, foot therapy, Ayurveda, facials and body treatments.

The design and layout of this multitasking camp — which can accommodate family groups and corporate retreats as readily as couples — puts guests front and center amidst the natural wonders and phenomena of the Coachella desert, even while providing creature comforts found at better hotels and practical features like well-appointed kitchenettes with basic cookware, towels and linens, and a fire pit with a grill.

See the World Through a Different Lens as you Connect with Native Peoples

I sat in spellbound reverence, fixed to my rickety wooden chair in a Peruvian Amazon rain forest village. A local shaman welcomed our small group from the riverboat Zephyr to teach us about medicinal plants from the jungle. Then, blowing tobacco smoke from his cupped hands, he framed my body with a smoke shield as he blew it around my face and over my shoulders, all the while chanting his blessing from the forest.
