View from The Mountain UU Retreat

The Mountain, founded by Unitarian Universalists in 1979, is a non-profit year-round ecologically conscious retreat and learning center serving churches, businesses, non-profits, 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 very unique opportunity – come refresh your spirit in the natural beauty of a mountaintop.

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 that “special place” for their conference, workshop, music fest, wellness event or hiking trek. For more information please visit The Mountain.
