The Hermitage

The Hermitage is a cabin built onto the precipice of the 100-foot deep Rocky Fork Gorge in a deeply wooded setting. Hermitage offers two private suites for nature retreats of one or two people each, each suite with its own private deck and entrance.

The building sits well off the road and is isolated from the views of any other nearby residences. The interior of both suites is highly aesthetic and artistic in design, while view outside the bedroom windows of both suites is truly spectacular.

These are our most remote suites, yet they are located in the heart of the Highlands Nature Sanctuary, close to most of the trailheads and within walking distance of the Sanctuary's visitor center.

The Zen River Room 

The Zen River Room is the larger of the two suites. It espouses elegant Zen-inspired simplicity within its walls, and dramatic scenery outside its many windows. Large glass windows transform the bedroom and the living room into a tree house, with inspiring views of the forest in nearly every direction.

The bed is a beautiful Asian style model, with a low platform, so as not to block the stunning 270 degree view. The living room is quite large with bookshelves, couch, and sitting chairs. There is plenty of room to do yoga or meditation on the oak floors.

Please note: The Zen River Room is for one to two adult guests only.

Eyrie Suite - Cabin Retreat at Highlands Nature Sanctuary

The bedroom of the Eyrie Suite.


The Eyrie Suite

Massive round logs compose the bedroom furniture, handcrafted of native white cedar by a cottage industry in Wisconsin. Snowshoes, antique fur buggy robe, and old school desk bring to this room the mystique of the North Woods.

Breathtaking views of the deep gorge below can be seen through several viewing windows, including large ones directly opposite the queen-sized bed.

Artwork in the suite includes the original art of Rebecca Flint, who painted one water color for each of the four seasons at the Highlands Nature Sanctuary. 

Please note: The Eyrie Suite is for one to two adult guests only.
