Living Life Again Retreat For THRIVERS!


The Horse Shoe Farm

Asheville/Hendersonville, North Carolina



85-acre upscale boutique resort nestled in the mountains of Asheville/Hendersonville, North Carolina with an on-property farm-to-table dining experience and a luxury spa. The farm was just named one of the 25 most spectacular hotels in the world by Matador Network!

Ladies: Are you a cancer THRIVER?

  • Is cancer in your rearview mirror? 

  • Are you done with treatments, and surgeries, paid off the bills, and healed up the physical scars? 

  • THEN, this retreat is for you THRIVERS…to help you/us create a “new healthy normal”.

  • Let’s connect with those who’ve gone through the same and remind ourselves of how to LIVE & HAVE FUN! 

We’ll play and decompress, while also creating a “Living Life Plan” for ourselves, holding each other accountable, and having a ton of fun in the process. 🙂 

How will we do that? We take a deep breath and chill. Join us and co-create with other survivors.  The setting will disconnect, inspire, refresh, and soothe your soul!

LODGING: We are taking over the Magnolia Manor, the largest home on the farm. 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, fireplace, rocking chair on the porch or gazebo. At night, we can gather around the fire pit and share stories, laugh, and pig out on s’mores, or soak in the hot tub and marvel at the starry skies.

The Farmhouse is our game room that offers a pool table, ping pong tables, record player and record collection, big screen TV, games, puzzles and arts & crafts.

There are bikes in the game room that are free for guests to use to explore

We have fishing gear (poles and tackle) available to use in the two ponds located on the property.

Paddle boards and canoes that can be used at the group’s leisure (life jackets provided).

Scenic outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, steam room and labyrinth.

The Farm is home to a variety of animals, including of course our two horses. They are on vacation just like everyone else that visits the farm, so they’re not available for riding. We are happy to give tours down to The Animal Barn, they always love visitors!

Each night we have a bonfire next to the Silo Cookhouse. The view is spectacular! This is a great time to decompress and enjoy the smores kits that we provide for each of our guests in their homes upon arrival. Sunset is a great chance to walk up into The Silo itself and see the sunset from The Farm’s highest and most immersive vantage point.

Outdoor Activities dependent on weather. Duh! 😉

We are manifesting fall colors, brisk and beautiful.


Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner.

The atmosphere at The Silo Cookhouse is one of an indulgent dinner party featuring the freshest, locally sourced ingredients.

If guests would like to go off site, the Farm is centrally located between Hendersonville, Asheville, and Brevard so there are many things nearby including hiking, horseback riding, and great shops to explore.
