About This Organizer

The retreat center set in the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains offers a peace-filled getaway for you or your group.

The retreat center offers multiple possibilities and retreat spaces for groups, individuals or families. It is an ideal event space to support community-building and transformative experiences in the heart of the mountains, nurtured by attentive hosts and comfortable retreat lodging and facilities.
