Welcome to Turtle Mountain in Trust 

A vacation home rental is situated
 on 17 private acres

where you can enjoy the serenity of the
Blue Ridge Mountains.

Located just 13 miles from the historic and quaint mountain town of Hot Springs, NC (pop. 600+-)
where you’ll find many popular outdoor activities to enjoy during your time spent here.
It’s also a great place to simply relax, reconnect, or rejuvenate. 

Turtle Mountain in Trust is a destination that’s ideal for:

weekend or weeknight getaways 

vacation ~ honeymoon  ~  girls or guys only getaway

retreats (religious, spiritual, grief)

celebrations (birthday, anniversary, holiday, etc.)

Rock House Road stream


From the patio, or inside Turtle Mountain in Trust with the windows open you can usually hear the nearby stream. Although it’s not on the property (please do not trespass) you can enjoy the benefits of it’s calming effect.

We have a small family cemetery in a prayer garden, and inside Turtle Mountain in Trust is a meditation room where guests may find comfort, inspiration, and read the history of this property.




Summer months are busy for vacations, destination weddings in the area,
and weekend getaways to experience outdoor recreation.
October is the popular leaf season so you want to book in advance as most rentals will not have vacancy.
Holidays are also very busy especially Thanksgiving and Christmas
since large families enjoy gathering at Turtle Mountain in Trust.

While staying at Turtle Mountain in Trust guests may want to visit Asheville for the many
eateries, craft breweries, entertainment, festivals, and to tour the famous Biltmore Estate.
 Asheville is 30 miles.

If you are like most people you’re probably looking at several different vacation rental websites.
One of the best ways to help you select the one you want for your mountain destination is to
read previous guests comments.

Effective 06/30/17 until further notice we will not be able to book reservations with less than 10 days from a requested check-in date. This is due to a new procedure by PayPal which will randomly select payments to HOLD for at least 7 days, and potentially up to 21 days (if the account holder doesn’t override that to allow the 7 days to apply).

If you book a reservation on a date that is more that 14 days from the arrival date, your balance due payment must be paid promptly 14 days before the arrival date. This is to allow sufficient time for the 7 days to pass, so if their is a hold on your payment it will be released to us. Once the hold on your funds is released then we will provide you a confirmation sheet by e-mail, with the code to the lock box for the key.

We hope that PayPal will lift this “hold” procedure within the next 30 days, but it could be as long as 90 days. It’s up to them to make that determination on EVERY PayPal account user that invoices a customer for a product or service
