Nature-Based retreat and educational center


Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

John Muir

Wellspring Mountain is a botanically rich nature preserve, retreat and educational center offering rental space on a beautiful 5oo acre campus, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  The land is protected by Piedmont Land Conservancy, and we have partnered with United Plant Savers as members of their Botanical Sanctuary Network. 

Mission Statement: Wellspring Mountain exists to bring people and nature together through outdoor adventures, education, and team-building.
Vision Statement: Wellspring Mountain seeks to be a botanically rich sanctuary, for those seeking to live closer to nature, learn new skills, and connect with their community.

Our Goals are to Provide:

Affordable Rental Facilities and Camping

Abundant Wild Spaces for Your Outdoor Classroom or Retreats

A Supportive and Knowledgeable Staff


Education is close to our hearts here on the mountain. We host several classes year round. If you are looking for an outdoor classroom to facilitate your program give us a call.
