Venue & Accomodations

HOUSA 2018 returns to Highland Lake Cove and Sanctuary in the Pines.

Highland Lake Cove and Sanctuary in the Pines, are located in Flat Rock, NC and is an intentional community project started 30 years ago. It is a beautiful location that has a lake, inside common spaces, an outside amphitheater, kitchen and dining area, as well as a mix of private and shared cabin style beds. Camping is available for about 40 tents.

The entire campus is laid out like a lemnisgate (infinity symbol) with each side circular in nature. It is easily walked, as it is flat. While it may take 10-15 minutes to walk from farthest point to farthest point, it is easy ground to walk.

There is a Retreat House, near The Sanctuary, that has 14 private single rooms. Each room has a sink, with shared bathrooms and showers.

There are cabins that surround the lake, with porches -LOT’s of porches, and there are 3 areas to choose for camping: near the Sanctuary, near the Lake or in the Woods.
