Montreat offers a peaceful and beautiful setting for guests to commune with their Creator, rest their souls, and shed the burdens of everyday life. Personal Sabbaths can provide time and space for prayer, study, or rest, as well as opportunities outside the gate to take part in all that Western North Carolina has to offer.

If you can’t make it to one of our conferences, come spend a few days in the mountain air at your own pace. We promise it will be time well spent.

Pets and Service Animals

Montreat does not accommodate pets, but service animals are welcome in Montreat. A service animal is a dog or miniature horse that is trained to do work or perform tasks for, and to assist, an individual with a disability. The ADA requires that service animals be under the control of the handler at all times. The service animal must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered while in public places unless these devices interfere with the service animal's work or the person's disability prevents use of these devices. In that case, the person must still maintain control of the animal. Under control also means that a service animal should not be allowed to bark repeatedly in a quiet place. The handler of the service animal may be asked to remove their service animal from the premises if the animal is out of control and the animal's owner does not take effective action to control it or the animal poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others.
