Retreat: a place of refuge, seclusion, or privacy.  


At the base of venerable Linville Mountain in the serene North Cove Valley is the casual and intimate Catawba River Inn.  Join us for a weekend of relaxation, exquisite home-cooked meals, and, of course, knitting!  


Find yourself a spot to knit - a rocker on the veranda or an adirondack or swing alongside the ancient but tranquil Catawba River  - to share stories, make friends, or simply revel in the wonder of this special place.   


Knitescapes have fewer participants and less activities but more time to retreat.
