  1. We are planning on making reservations for Kay Arthur in November for 6-8 or may 10 ladies. I understand that the cost of the seminar is $247. How do we make reservations for the Inn and what is cost per person for the rooms. (2) per room. (3) per room, etc. Thanks. I will call to make reservations as soon as I get a firm number. Thank you for your response.

    1. Great question. Unfortunately, we don’t have an airport shuttle service, however there are airport transportation companies that can bring you from the airport to The Cove if you don’t want to rent a car. If you contact us at (800) 950-2092, a member of our staff would be happy to provide you with some more information. Look forward to seeing you at The Cove.

  2. I would like to bring my mother with me to one of THE COVE events. We will be flying from Denver International Airport to North Carolina. What airport is the closests to THE COVE? Is there a shuttle that will take us to THE COVE? How long of a drive is it from the local airport to THE COVE?

    1. Hi, Natalie! The closest airport is the Asheville Regional Airport (AVL). It is a 20 minute drive from the airport to The Cove.

  4. I wonder how much Jesus would have charged to tell people about his life. So sad that money controls whether we learn more about Christ. I really think hearts need to be searched by Christ himself as well as ourselves to see how pure they really are.

    1. Tricia, the beautiful thing about having access to the Word, fellowship and study with other Christians, and being able to share our testimonies and the Gospel of Jesus Christ, is that it does not cost us a thing. So thankful for this! Peace and blessings to you, sister!

    1. Hello, Adriane! The best time to come is in October or the 1st week of November. It’s hard to pinpoint exact dates. If we had to narrow that timeframe down, mid-October to 1st of November would probably be best. Here is a link to a local Fall Forecast: http://www.romanticasheville.com/fall.htm
