Want a scenic nature haven, a private venue for an upcoming event? Share this beautiful land and property with your group. We only rent to one group at a time, offering privacy and spaciousness for your retreat experience here.

We are a private eco-friendly 63 acre campus of peaceful indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces, international themed lodging rooms, camping sites, herb and sensory gardens, solar panels, fire pits, woodlands, labyrinth and meditation rock, meandering trails, wading river, koi pond, curious goats, and comfortable refurbished buildings.

Healthy land, buildings, water and creatures are a focus, with permaculture our land practice. The land holds deep roots, including evidence of the Cherokee tribe living on the land. Our neighbor’s adjacent 4 acre organic farm is part of the 63 acre BOI campus. Beautiful to experience.

Bend of Ivy’s buildings and grounds feel magical. Think Asian Zen elements mixed with charming restored tobacco barn, all nestled in a nature haven surrounded by majestic mountains.
