Thistledown on Yellow Mountain is a beautiful 22-acre retreat site that is nestled in the Southern Appalachian Highlands. It is located on the side of Big Yellow Mountain off 19E in Minneapolis, between Spruce Pine and Elk Park. The exceptional views and the peace filled woodland forest and grassy meadows provide a chance for guests to reconnect with nature. Guests may come as a retreat to get away from the daily stress of life or may come to take classes or gather with friends. Thistledown is open to individuals or groups.

It is a great meeting site for small groups or individuals who want to be away from daily distractions.
