As you approach the walkway to the Garden Cottage, you may catch the sweet scent of jasmine flowers. The covered deck shaded by a huge fig tree is a perfect spot to enjoy tree-lined views of Lake Buchanan and watch hummingbirds dart around the plants and flowers surrounding the cottage. Inside the cottage, soothing pastel hues and a cozy sitting area greet you, inviting you to settle into one of the plush chairs, put your feet up and relax by reading or simply watching the water as you listen to the birds sing outside.

A gem!

We stayed at Rainbow Hearth over the Valentina's Day weekend, and wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful, spotlessly clean room; soothing views of water and of hillside; only the gentle wind chimes and birdsongs to contrast with total peace; kind, cheerful staff, and visionary owner; altogether it is totally unpretentious and accepting. Yes, this IS a sanctuary! We opted for all meals and body work, and are so glad we did.


Heven on earth

I had a wonderful time!! Clean rooms with all essentials already supplied for you. The food is indescribably delicious!!( and organic ). If you stay here, you have to book a session and have bodywork done, it will top off a picture perfect trip!!


5 Star Plus!

5 on August 19, 2013

I have traveled to many 5 star resorts around the world and non compares to the quality of food, service and accommodations at Rainbow Hearth. It is heaven on earth! The extra touches such as dimmer reading lights above each side of the bed, and the Sleep Number mattress is incredibly comfortable. The level of care and attention given to every guest is beyond compare. The body work with Mariah should not be missed.


Incredible service, food, and peace

Mariah is an absolute gem. My husband and I stayed in the treehouse yurt for part of our honeymoon and he was sick with the flu. Mariah was so kind when we met her and suggested several teas to help him out, gave us a free breakfast (including her homemade smoothies), found a tray so I could bring it up to him in bed, and just made us feel so taken care of. We loved the food, too! It was healthy, organic, and so tasty. It inspired me to go to Whole Foods and take better care of myself since I felt so good there. And I couldn't get enough of the water, there, either. They purify their own rain water! You wouldn't think it makes a difference, but it does. I felt so in tune with nature and myself, and a short walk up to Medicine Rock helped with that, too. It has a strong spiritual energy, and even though I am not religious, I felt very comfortable, safe, and cared for when I went there to seek guidance about my new marriage. The area is beautiful and peaceful. We loved being in the woods and our yurt was secluded and quiet. We loved having our own two-person tub in our little bathhouse. It was just wonderful and we plan to come back for many anniversaries!
