The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center

About The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center

The Mountain is an ecologically-conscious retreat and learning center serving congregations, businesses, schools, and other groups. Located on 4,200 foot high granite cliffs on the Eastern Continental Divide in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we offer a unique opportunity in gratitude to the unique ecology and history of the oldest mountains in the world. In this environment with four ecosystems, we have programming for children, youth and adults.

We have a full range of dining, lodging, and meeting space facilities supporting our own program events, as well as events sponsored by third party vendors seeking the right place for their conferences, workshops, family gatherings, wellness events, hiking treks or inspired experiences.

We also have an educational farm dedicated to teaching apprentices and The Mountain Retreat & Learning Center’s guests about the concepts and techniques of regenerative agriculture. Our Many Hands Peace Farm contributes to The Mountain’s overall environmental sustainability, producing food, mushrooms, flowers, and herbs for use in our kitchen and dining hall. ​
