What makes Orion Retreat and Daycare Special.

Orion Retreat and Daycare, Inc. (Orion Retreat) is unique among lodging and daycare facilities in the Asheville, North Carolina area because we understand and recognize all dogs, like humans, are unique and require personalized attention and care plans that specifically cater to them, as individuals.

Some dogs learn fast and play hard while others take their time and enjoy a more relaxing pace of engaging interaction. We recognize that each dog’s circumstances are not the same and warrant a creative, constructive, compassionate lodging and daycare program that best fits them.


Our knowledgeable pet care team takes time to get to know you and your dog. We identify personality traits, habits, lifestyle, prior experiences, abilities, behaviors, and levels of agility so that we can create a program that positively benefits and enhances your dog’s life, as well as your own. 

We include hours of cage-free exercise and communal interaction that is crucial to your dog’s well-being. If your pup loves playing with friends then we can introduce her into one of our safe, structured play groups.

Facilities & Amenities

Over 11,000 sq ft of play space accommodate dogs of all sizes so there is ample room to run and socialize.

Inside, Play Zones have rubberized flooring for cushioned support. Outside zones are finished with eco-friendly K9 Grass™ that breaks down liquid waste before it enters the stormwater system.

Amenities include ample shade, cooling fans, agility equipment and quality interaction with staff members.

Wading pools and cabana-style misters will help them stay cool on warm summer days. When your pup needs some “me” time, she may retreat to her private suite for some one-on-one attention from our caring staff.

Orion Retreat’s lodging accommodations provide a spacious, home-like experience. Private Luxury, Superior, and Junior Suites are designed with comfort, cleanliness, and safety in mind.

Canine quiet rooms with added insulation are available as well.

Individual elevated dog beds provide orthopedic, chew proof, easy to clean resting space for extended stay comfort. Upgraded bedding adds another extra layer of comfort and joint support.

Indoor/Outdoor play zones are separated by motorized roll up doors for easy access that maximize play opportunities no matter the weather.


K-9 Grass is the artificial grass designed specifically for dogs. With its exclusive flow-through backing, short dense blade structure, and antimicrobial protection that breaks down liquid waste before it enters the stormwater system, K-9 Grass offers a cleaner, safer, better environment for pets.
