Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just minutes from Asheville, North Carolina, Ridgecrest Conference Center is a secluded retreat center known for its tranquility. Natural stone buildings and thick mountain laurel create a restful charm throughout the campus. The sunrises are spectacular, with ambient colors reflecting off the mountain mist. Ridgecrest’s beautiful 1,300 acre campus climbs from valley to mountaintop, offering elegant comfort in guest lodging and meeting space for over 2,000 people.

Peaceful and beautiful, you can relax in your room, stroll around the campus, or stake out your Rocking Chair while staring out across the mountains. Better yet, grab a couponing buddy and organize those binders or files.

All this while learning home decor tricks, savings tips, and meeting new friends.

    I’m trying to figure out what our driving time will be. Is there anywhere that I can find that out?

      I would just enter your address and then Ridgecrest Conference Center or Black Mountain into your phone/GPS. It will pull up ETA. or google it.
