In western North Carolina, the Blue Ridge Mountains beckon with deep valleys and long, forested ridges. Montreat Conference Center — a contraction of the words “Mountain Retreat” — rests within a narrow valley and is an idyllic getaway to the quiet atmosphere and natural beauty of Appalachia. Of Montreat’s 4,000 acres, 2,500 are dedicated to pristine wilderness. The invigorating retreat and its historic Assembly Inn are the perfect setting to discover an exciting and diverse array of topics with Road Scholar’s renowned experts in the classroom and in the field.
