The Rathbun House


Donate to the ​Rathbun House


The Rathbun House provides lodging and other supportive services in a "home like" environment for patients and or their caregivers coming to Asheville, North Carolina for medical treatment. Nestled in the mountains of western North Carolina, The Rathbun House is a house of comfort, hope, support, and love. Located on 18 wooded acres near Mission Hospital and only a few miles away from CarePartners and the VA Hospitals, the house offers 36 bedrooms, private baths, common areas and a large kitchen where you can prepare your own meals.

The Rathbun House is owned by Mission Foundation, who raise funds to keep the house free of charge for families in medical crisis.  The house is operated by Mission Health, Staff and Volunteers for the benefit of out of town families being served by area hospitals including Mission Health, CarePartners and VA Medical Center.

Admission is by referral only, and there is no charge to stay, but donations are welcomed to continue the operations of the Center.

We are also pleased to offer The Rathbun House for your business and organization meetings. Click Meeting Room for more information.

THANK YOU to our delightful Volunteers who make this house a home!
