The Heart Center offers a wonderful spiritual energy, beautiful setting and an opportunity for one to slow down and connect to one’s inner self. Words really cannot do the place justice; one must experience the positive energy to understand why I tell you, The Heart Center will forever hold a special place in your heart.
As a frequent and repeat visitor to The Heart Center- whether working as a counselor with challenged and neglected children and special needs adults , being with friends, or on personal retreat I am always moved by the natural beauty and spiritual energy that abounds and reverberates throughout the entire thirty acres.

Vivo en una ciudad muy grande con todos los problemas que esto tiene. Desde la primera vez que llegue a este sitio experimenté gran paz, he vuelto en diferentes épocas del año admirando los maravillosos escenarios de la naturaleza en todas sus expresiones. Aprendi allí con Liz el enorme valor de la meditación y del silencio interior y esto ha traído un nuevo y enriquecedor enfoque a mi vida.

THE HEART CENTER IS a magical place where Time, Space and YOU are ONE.
When I enter the property where the Heart Center is, I always stop and say a prayer of gratitude. I honor the energy upon this land; there is such a
depth of peace and clarity. This energy can facilitate spiritual awareness and healing if one is willing to meet same with honoring one's readiness
to move to the next step in their journey. The truth is always within, awaiting our acknowledgement.
Wow, what a trip! We randomly chose Liz's place to get away and plan for a retreat we're running. Little did we know, her retreat center is perfect for our next location! It's tranquil, warm, private, and simply incredible. I highly recommend playing tennis, simply for fun and movement. We LOVED everything about it and couldn't have been more pleased. I'm rejuvenated!
We enjoyed the solitude of the location and being right in the Nantahala forest, it's gorgeous!
I needed a spiritual retreat to reflect and plan for the next year and I got more than what I bargained for. Meditations, a fire ceremony and reiki healing session were added surprises that I will cherish forever.
This was our first visit to Liz´s place and certainly it will not be the last one. Liz a loving and caring host that owns a superb property in the woods. She made us feel at home since our arrival and had a wonderful conversation that led us to know her virtues as a thoughtful individual and her thorough skills in leading meditation sessions in contact and harmony with natures and the elements. Liz and her place are the perfect combination for a stress relieving, life improving retreat. She offers many options including vegetarian cookouts, spiritual ceremonies and the like. Highly, highly recommended. We are looking forward to coming back!
The house is lovely and exactly what I had hoped a "cabin in the forest" would be like. It's uniquely situated away from any sources of noise and light pollution, meaning it's tranquil and isolated, but still only six miles away from US 129 / Deal's Gap / Tail of the Dragon; we stayed as part of a motorcycling/driving weekend, and could not have asked for a more convenient home base. If you're looking for somewhere to get away from it all, don't hesitate to book this property. It's just as serene as the photos suggest.
If you want a very private, away from all the tourist spots, this is the place. So peaceful and quiet, God's creation at it's finest.

We could not have asked for a more perfect spot to stay in the Smoky Mountains. Liz's serene and stunning property is perfectly located for trips into the West Entrance of the Smokys or around Joyce Kilmer Forest and the beautiful lake nearby. After a day of hiking and exploring, we had the treat of having the lodge to ourselves and had the best sleep of our trip there. Meeting Liz was like reuniting with an old friend– easy to talk to, helpful as can be, and so clearly in command of the region around her that she set our (website hidden)-Maps-dependent minds at ease. The biggest treat by far was learning about her work with children and the healing camp she runs for them throughout the year. Knowing that we're enjoying ourselves immensely while contributing to such a worthwhile cause is more than we could've ever hoped for. We look forward to staying in touch with Liz and hopefully one day coming to visit again!
