Music on the Mountain

Starting this summer we will be having music played from our stage here on in the Blue Ridge Region of the  Appalachian mountains. Check out the line-up below!


We have two cabin rentals available and private rooms in the Hostel. Check out our Airbnb listing for availability. 

This area original home to the Tutelo tribe was once an orchard, then a wilderness therapy camp, and now home to Wellspring Mountain and the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine. The mountain itself has the geographical name of Saddle Mountain and sits right on the Blue Ridge Parkway at its peak. The forest is alive with many plants, fungi, and wildlife species, and the cool creeks and streams provide fresh spring water to all its inhabitants. Our goal here on the mountain is to share this fantastic piece of heaven with other outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers!


Our Vision

Wellspring Mountain is a botanically rich nature preserve 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.

Mission Statement: Wellspring Mountain exists to bring people and nature together through outdoor adventures, education, art, music, and camping.

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.

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.
