Welcome to Montreat.

Montreat’s Welcome sign is set in stone— literally.

Do you enjoy cool, mountain valleys and picturesque settings that look like they came from Tolkein’s Lothlorien? Well, you need to visit Montreat, North Carolina. This is mountain beauty at its best and Lake Susan may be the jewel in the crown. Don’t forget to step into the Ten Thousand Villages Shop located on the lake’s edge.

Montreat is a place to visit where you can relax, enjoy a picnic, and even more. This Friday is actually a good time to find out by “popping” over to Montreat College’s Annual Pops Concert on April 25. (Click here to find out all the details.)

Montreat is full of beautiful examples of stonework.

Montreat Conference Center is another good reason to visit. It hosts enjoyable conferences all year long and is an incredible venue for your events. You can click here to find out more about it.

Of course, Montreat College is located in Montreat. When they’re not putting on incredible concerts, they’re busy equipping young people for a life of accomplishment. You can click here to visit their website and find out about educational opportunities and other events they have planned. The campus is also home to The Chapel of the Prodigal, which features a fresco done by Benjamin F. Long’s in traditional methods dating back to the Renaissance.
