    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.

  1. 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. You may obtain the telephone numbers of airport shuttle services by contacting our Reservations department at 800-950-2092. We look forward to having you and your mother here at The Cove! Let us know if you have any other questions.

  2. My husband and I were interested in the personal retreat offered at The Cove. Is there a charge for this personal retreat and are we able to take advantage of the lodging accomodations at the Cove? This would be our first visit. Thank you in advance for your help.

    1. Hello, Donna! Yes, we do have have Personal Spiritual Retreats at The Cove. There is a program fee for the retreat (depends on how many days you stay) and yes, you can take advantage of lodging at one of our inns on property. These self-directed opportunities are for individuals or a couple to experience a private spiritual retreat to refocus on growing their relationship with God in the beauty and peaceful quiet of The Cove. Click here for available dates and more information http://www.thecove.org/Event/list-events-by-type/personal%20spiritual%20retreats/ or call (800) 950-2092 to discuss the program fees and to register.

  4. Hello, I’m planning to fly into Asheville from Dublin in June for a Personal Retreat. I’m on a pilgrimage, and would like to know if there are car rental companies close to the airport. Thank you and peace to you.

    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

      If you are not attending a seminar or personal spiritual retreat, and plan on only visiting our Chapel and Visitor’s Center, here are the hours:
      Visitor Hours:
      Mon through Fri: 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
      Select Saturdays (call or visit website)
      Sundays: Closed

    1. Hello, Dorothy! No we do not have recliners in our guest rooms. We do have a wingback chair that reclines and if requested can be put in your room. We also have amazing rocking chairs in each room. Let us know if you have any other questions. Blessings!

  5. Elvi Zapata currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina. He is a prophet of the Lord Jesus Christ and is preaching about the Judgment to come and the need for Repentance among Christian Believers. He is looking for land for his church and a “place of refuge” for people to come before and after the Judgment hits America.
    Just wanted you to be aware of Elvi’s ministry and his search there in the Asheville area.

  6. I ordered 5 tickets to the Brandon Heath concert for my family but had to do it in three orders because only 2 tickets are allowed to be purchased per order. I was wondering why this is the case?

    1. Hi, Cathy. Apparently, this is a very complicated programming effort (within our system) to add more than two tickets per order. We are working on a new website for 2017, so we’ll consider adding a feature that you could purchase at least up to 6 tickets as we move forward. We look forward to seeing you in February!
