WILDACRES RETREAT

Nurturing Innovation and Imagination
The Wildacres Retreat sits hidden away amongst tall trees on top of Pompey’s Knob within the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, famous for the bluish color seen from afar

Wildacres Retreat is a center for cultural gatherings, a haven for learning and exchanging of ideas, touching the scenic background of the mountains of North Carolina. It is truly an extraordinary place that nurtures and inspires the imagination and encourages creativity.

Lodging, dining, conference, and workshop facilities welcome over 80 different non-profit organizations that visit Wildacres annually and make it their home for a few days each time. Groups cover the cultural gamut: art, music, poetry and writing, science, religion, and those relevant to lapidary and jewelry. The season for Wildacres runs from April through October. Most of the groups return every year around the same time, some twice a year, and often multiple groups reside during the same week.

The name “wildacres” reflects the natural environment - the mountain laurels, rhododendrons, wild flowers, birds, chipmunks, and all other wildlife that call the 1,600 acres home.
Surrounding the lodges and workshop facilities are many walking paths and sitting areas that ofer serene and quiet moments of solitude and reflection.

The Wildacres Retreat sits hidden away amongst tall trees on top of Pompey’s Knob at the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, at 3,300 feet elevation. There is no sign on the main road promoting Wildacres. One has to know where to turn off from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
