Wild Acres is magical; but you can only visit as part of an organized group or class established by a non-profit.

It is misleading to post on this site as an option for accommodation.

We have been coming here for five years as a couple, and I came as a solo traveler for two years before that. Spring Gathering is a chance to connect with other artists while focusing on your own project for an uninterrupted week. I’m a quilter; he’s a writer. We LOVE it here! It’s not for the luxury seeker, nor for the fussy. It’s for people who want to connect with their thoughts in the loveliest mountain surroundings imaginable.

Everything is the same as my original review but I am sorry to revise my opinion about the food. It was so bad when I went in June of 2019 that I told the people running the retreat I could not return. There were too many mystery dishes the tasted weird and other recognizable foods that I would never eat anyway. The salad bar and desserts were still great, but one cannot live by salad and dessert alone. :-(

We were there for a conference and learning experience. Wildacres' mission is to enhance cultural and educational experiences - perhaps I should call it a summer camp for adults? The summer camp analogy holds with respect to dining - there is a dining hall with set times for 3 meals a day - the kitchen staff does a great job providing what the conference organizers plan. (At our conference, while there was only one entree, there also was a vegetarian option.) There is no gym, but *lots* of opportunity for strolling, walking and hiking in relatively level area or more hilly trails. For accommodations, there are a few dozen double rooms - I think only open to conference participants or by arrangement, are clean, comfortable but not fancy.

The scenery is a Blue Ridge Mountain area - isolated and lovely. The altitude (3,300') is enough to sense, but not enough to make us sea level denizens uncomfortable.

A wonderful place with great staff, great food, and wow desserts. The instructor was talented and patient. A very well run conference center. The view was lovely and the property was well taken care of.

I have been to Wildacres at least 6 times now for 1 week workshops and I think that is the only way one can go to Wildacres. They might have individual retreats but I don't know. The is a camp for adults, so don't expect a luxury place. You are there because you have probably come with a group for a specific purpose. Writing, playing an instrument, rock-hounding, metasmithing, or a religious retreat. The grounds are lovely, the rooms very plain but comfortable. They could use a makeover but that is incidental. There is no air conditioning but there are ceiling fans in every room. The communal areas are nicely appointed with gorgeous views and it is only a few hundred feet from the Appalachian Trail. The only thing I would wish would be for food more to my taste. It is simple fare with a great salad bar lunch and dinner and they accommodate specialty diets, but I am fussy. Also, desserts are usually placed in front of your plate before you eat & I am addicted (literally) to sugar so it is hard for me to not eat cake.
Check out the web site for the story behind Wildacres. It is quite amazing. The crew that runs the place couldn't be nicer or more helpful. There are things to do in the area but you will be on campus most of the time. I go from bed to breakfast to studio to lunch to studio to dinner to studio to bed. I barely take a walk altho I keep meaning to. There are places to put a small amount of your own food and coffee early in the am, but meals are only served at specific time and there are not other options.
Sounds like I am saying negative things, doesn't it? I want you to know how the place really is. But I wouldn't miss going there for anything and would love to just go for a week without anything to do but sit and look at the view.
Don't miss a chance to go there.
Wheel chair accessible.

We were staying at the Big Lynn Lodge nearby and stopped by in the afternoon to see the dozens of sculptors and artists doing what they love to do in a nonprofit mountain retreat setting that brings together muscians, artists and writers for a week of work and comaraderie. This place is a testament to the Blumenthal family of Charlotte who had the vision and philanthropic fortitude to promote harmony, artistry, religion and nature for many decades to come. Well worth a visit.

I just spent a week with the Nature Printing Society's Annual Workshop. Great hiking area with lots to see and friends getting together for the week of workshops and honing their skills printing in many different mediums. The lodges are very comfortable and clean. The staff is wonderful and helpful. The views are spectacular with no Wifi, TV or telephone distractions. The nights are quiet and wonderful listening to the wind in the trees. We had fantastic weather.

I was so lucky to have the opportunity to attend the 40th anniversary of the Nature Printing Society in the annual week long workshops held in the most beautiful blue ridge mountains at the wild acres retreat.
It's an amazing place and a perfect place to be creative.

I had the opportunity to come to this retreat for the first time this year. It is an amazing place run by many dedicated, personable, friendly and service oriented folks. I'm hoping for a return visit sometime in the next couple of years.

The views from Pompey's Knob were spellbinding!
