Even though Montreat is tucked away in a cove in the Blue Ridge Mountains it is welling with life and excitement! I love Montreat, NC because of the great hiking, lush mountain environment and family-friendly atmosphere.

My parents have just recently moved here and it's beautiful. It is surrounded by hiking trails with great views. Everyone here is friendly. I feel at home.
