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.

A great farewell time for me

  • 4 of 5

I took a group of teenagers and college to Montreat Youth Conference. The house was very spacious and for the first time we had beds for everyone. The kitchen size is AMAZING. To be the perfect house is just missing AC on the second and first floor. Even though we had enough fans it was a bit warm everywhere else but the third floor. But we did manage and had the time of our lives. We requested to be there again next year and hope they will accept it. It seems we found the perfect place for our group at Montreat. Blessings sent to the owners. Gigi, FHPC Tampa, Fl

Awesome place in Montreat paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, and it was even better than the first, thanks to upgrades to the bathrooms and the huge new deck out back. We had 13 of us, including 7 kids, and this place was absolutely perfect. No complaints whatsoever. We will definitely be back!

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.

Comfortable, roomy, special home

  • 5 of 5

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.
