Welcome to Mount Soma, a retreat center nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Enjoy the peace and quiet, beautiful views, hiking, twice-daily meditation, and delicious vegetarian cuisine.
The Yellow Cottage Ground Floor is great for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
The Ground Level of the Yellow Cottage suite is a studio apartment, furnished with a queen bed and 2 twin beds. Along with a beautiful mountain view, the cottage includes a table and chairs, sink, microwave, small refrigerator, heat & AC, and an assortment of teas and coffee. The cottage does not have a kitchen, but home cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner are available nearby at the Mount Soma Visitor Center or Student Union Building. The bathroom has a walk-in shower, but no tub. Cell phone reception is spotty, but Internet access is available. We supply bed linens and towels.
Mount Soma is a 400 acre community and a meditation retreat center. It has many private homes, a Visitor Center with a meditation hall, Manor Creek, and 3 parks with hiking. Feel free to explore all that Mount Soma has to offer. Parents are responsible for their children.
Weekdays at Mount Soma are peaceful and quiet while weekends and holidays are a festive with many Indian guests visiting the Vedic temple.
We try to leave guests to themselves so everyone has their own space and privacy. At the same time, all guests are welcome to call the Visitor Center or stop by and ask any questions they might have. The Visitor Center is open from 9 am to 7:30 pm daily.
