Located high in the Blue Ridge of the Southern Appalachian Mountains, The Mountain Retreat and Learning Centers is a place to expand your horizons - explore new ideas, meet new people and re-connect with yourself, community and the natural world. Surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest, our home is Little Scaly Mountain - four miles southwest of Highlands. At 4200' elevation, perched atop striking granite cliffs and nestled in an ancient dwarf white oak wind forest, our site is spectacular, with dramatic vistas, quiet places and lots to do. Open year-round, The Mountain offers excellent programming for all ages. Inspiration mixes with renewal as you challenge yourself to grow and learn.
