Wintertime is often looked over as a good season for hosting retreats. However, when it comes to the mountains of North Carolina, there is no better time to experience the beauty of God’s Creation. Hendersonville, NC, winters are fairly mild compared to other parts of the country, with average temperatures in the high 30s to low 40s and average monthly snowfall around 4”. 

While it may be cold, hosting a winter retreat can provide a unique experience unlike any other. While the weather may be more unpredictable, could you imagine waking up to a dusting of snow along the breathtaking mountains of North Carolina?

Why Winter Retreats Are the Best

For one, winter brings cooler weather. Sure it may be cold, but getting outside provides unique experiences in the outdoors. Just think of how incredible icy lakes and frosty mornings can give off the feeling of solitude.

Winter is also a great season for introspection. Other than Christmas, it is a much slower-paced time of year, and with that slower pace comes more time to look inward. By hosting your retreat in the winter, your guests will already be primed and focused for your event.
