Summer Retreat Venues WNCAs the spring draws to a close, you may already be considering scheduling a summer retreat for your organization. Many factors must be considered when planning a retreat, including available dates, finance, venue, and planned activities.

You can have everything lined up for a retreat. However, if the venue is wrong or the location of the retreat is subpar, the summer retreat may not be as successful as you would have hoped.

Western North Carolina is known as a great place in which to hold a summer retreat because of all the area has to offer. WNC offers many opportunities for weekend retreats, with one such retreat center being Tekoa Retreats in Hendersonville, NC.

Retreat Venues For The Summer In WNC

The mountains of WNC are a magical place of high mountain peaks and deep, hidden valleys filled with rushing rivers and streams full of trout and cascading waterfalls. WNC is especially attractive for a summer retreat because of the cooler mountain temperatures during an otherwise hot summer in the lowlands.

The Blue Ridge Parkway travels through the area. Significant portions of the landscape are within protected government lands in national forests, state and local parks, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Towns And Communities To Explore In WNC During Your Retreat

There are also many towns and villages scattered through WNC filled with interesting and exciting activities to do including Asheville, Hendersonville, Franklin, Bryson City, and Cherokee. Attractions include the cultural and historical areas in Cherokee, the scenic train ride in Bryson City and the Biltmore House near Asheville to name but a few.

Escaping into nature occasionally is one of the best ways to reconnect yourself, shift your mindset towards positivity, build mental strength, and even become physically and spiritually healthier.

Although taking time to leave the world you live in and retreat to nature for a short hike through the forest is always worth the time and effort, there are times when you should go to a place where you can completely lose yourself for several days. 

If you wish to take a summer retreat in WNC with top-notch facilities, consider Tekoa Retreats in Hendersonville for your trip.
