Montreat is a small resort town and home to the Montreat Conference Center. In the winter it is a very quiet and secluded little town. The fall colors of the area make it a perfect destination to enjoy the season and it is 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Summer time is the ultimate family environment with organized activities and groups for kids of all ages. Black Mountain is 3 miles away with restaurants, music venues, and retail. Downtown Asheville and the Biltmore house are a 20 minute drive away.
A big fan of family fun. Happy to share ideas for your vacation in Montreat and the Asheville area. I live close by and will do what I can to make your stay a unique and memorable experience.
My Grandparents ran a boarding house for missionaries so our family has come here for years. My parents have turned that house into their home in Montreat and I consider many of the other residents (my father's childhood friends) to be my family!
Love this town!~
Let me share it with you!~
The seclusion and beauty is unsurpassed in the off season. In the summer, it is one of the few towns you can still send your children out the door in the morning and not worry about them all day long. Park your car in the driveway and enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, paddle boats, and square dancing; all just a short walk away. The wrap around porch and screened in porch provide the perfect place to cook out and relax.
