Unique Places to Stay, River Hill Retreat, Sparta North Carolina

Are you heading through North Carolina and looking for an affordable, extraordinary stay away from the busy city life and typical hotel?

 Look no further than the beautiful, scenic, Christmas Tree Farm in Sparta, North Carolina. Better known by the locals and Airbnb as River Hill Retreat.


This beautiful retreat and tree farm is located near a state route beside main thorough fair Interstate 77 and is nestled in the foothill of the Blue Ridge Mountains. River Hill Retreat is a relaxing surprise at the end of a long drive.


Located on a 23 acre Christmas Tree Farm actively ran by husband and wife Joel and Mandy along with their two sweet little boys, created a home away from home that is exactly the reprieve you are looking for.

 If you are in the mood to relax amongst beautiful scenery – you’ve come to the right place. The four bedroom five bed home is pleasing to both families and couples alike.

 Relax on the porch swing under the tree or in a relaxing chair overlooking the vast hillside.

 Looking for adventure? I suggest a small hike down the hill to the pond to fish. Walk amongst the Christmas trees as they beautifully wait for their season.


Did the kids come too?? Absolutely no worries. Take a breather while the kids play on the trampoline, feed the Alpacas, enjoy s’mores by the fireplace, or play with the friendliest dogs you would ever want to meet. And don’t forget catching lightning bugs in a jar before bedtime.

Dinner on the go is no problem at all. Less than 10 minutes up the country roadside are delicious local take-outs. Or, use the full kitchen in your home away from home to whip up a dish from the local grocery store. All your dishes and supplies needed are already tucked away for you in cabinets.


In the morning wake up to fresh peaches, mandarins oranges and bananas, farm fresh eggs, Starbucks and French Press to sip in the morning.

Does this hidden retreat sound too good to be true? It might, but I believe most hidden treasures are. To book your next stay at River Hill Retreat click here
