In Montreat, summers bring mild days and cool night breezes. Autumn brings dramatic scenes of changing leaves. Winter brings clear mountain views. Spring brings wildflowers and green bursts of foliage.
Montreat is convenient to all that takes place at the Presbyterian Conference Center as well as the Baptist Conference Center at Ridge Crest. Black Mountain is a charming town, with mountain craft stores and restaurants. Asheville, a delightful mountain city with shopping and restaurants is only 20 minutes away.
In nearby Asheville, you can find the magnificent Biltmore Estate and the Grove Park Inn and Resort. Lake Lure is 25 minutes away. Enjoy rafting on either the French Broad or the Nantahala. Snow skiing is available, 45 minutes away. Within 60 minutes, you can reach the summit of Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain on the East Coast. Be in historic Cherokee in an hour. And for short and long hikes, one needs simply to walk out the door and there is access to multiple mountain trails.
This was a wonderful home. Very, very clean. You can tell the owners take very good care of the home. Love the front porch and has a large back deck with a lot of seating. Great backyard for kids. We will definitely stay here again.
We stayed here for one night for a church leadership retreat but even in this short time thoroughly enjoyed exploring this unique house. There was more than enough space for 4 couples to spread out. The kitchen was fully stocked and easy to cook in. We enjoyed the large dining table. The third floor bunk rooms are special, we imagined how much our children would've loved staying there if they were with us. The home felt clean and we enjoyed opening windows and sleeping with fresh air, even though it was warmer than usual when we were there.
The house was very clean, cozy, kitchen very well stocked. Great gathering space for multiple families. Kids loved the 3rd floor and the back yard/deck was great for hanging out. New bathrooms were a plus. Thanks for a really nice weekend. Definitely will come back!
Three families enjoyed a peaceful and comfortable weekend getaway at this lovely home in Montreat. Kids and parents alike enjoyed the spacious yard and deck areas. We will definitely return if we can!
This home is very well equipped. Exactly as advertised. A wonderful combination of modern and cozy cottage. Plenty of living space. Great location making walking to conference events possible, but away from business of meetings. Our school age grandchildren loved the treasures - books and games - they found to play with and the freedom of the yard and street and stream. All our family really enjoyed it and will return. We took advantage of the mountain trails nearby and the wonderful play park and ball field available near the conference center. A truly memorable weekend. Many thanks to the family for sharing their beautiful home. Nobody wanted to leave!!
Loved this charming home (photos don't do it justice! ). We had four couples and several children, and we had plenty of space! I will undoubtedly return to this wonderful home for another stay!
