Our Top Priority: The Safety of Our Guests, Employees, and Community

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Montreat Conference Center!

Safety and cleanliness have always been a top priority of ours. Right now, we’re adhering to CDC, state, and municipal guidelines. In fact, Montreat Conference Center is a “Count on Me NC” business, meaning we’ve taken extra training and have implemented new procedures in light of COVID-19.
