Welcome to William Black Lodge and Retreat Center

We are commemorating our centennial in 2015 with a series of events – and you’re invited to join the celebration. Our historic lodge in Western North Carolina was originally built to provide a place of rest, relaxation and renewal for Presbyterian ministers, Christian educators and their families. Today, the William Black Lodge is a favorite retreat location for nonprofit organizations, as well as church groups and mission organizations. Warm and intimate, our lodge and conference center in Montreat, NC, provides the perfect setting for your nonprofit group to come together without outside distractions and grow, amidst the peaceful panorama of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
