I have visited Compassionate Expressions with my two children (who are now 8 years old) for the past three years. It is one of my children's favorite things to do in the summer. It is wonderful for them to experience country living. We try to go when local blueberry picking is at its peak. They also enjoy the nearby gem mining.
We have found Reva and Lenora to be very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area. We love going to the hot tub and I have had healings with Reva and have found her to be incredibly insightful (another reason I like to go back). I have also been happy with the massage services. The kids love feeding the goats and playing with the dogs. The view is gorgeous and there is a lot of area for the kids to explore. There is a patio overlooking the valley and it is nice to end the day by relaxing with a glass of wine while watching the kids play with the animals.
This is not for someone looking for exciting night life. It is really a country retreat. We live in a city and I love that I can take my kids there and expose them to a slower pace life that also has beautiful scenery. Asheville is not very far away if you do want to experience a neat city though.
I have always found the accommodations to be clean and comfortable.
