Autumn B&B Retreats
Cozy Lodging with Continental Breakfast

Autumn in the Blue Ridge Mountains is spectacular. And on Kanuga’s 1,400 acres, there’s so much to enjoy in addition to the beautiful fall foliage. From exploring our 20 miles of trails to experiencing the new Ride Kanuga mountain bike park, there are many ways to enjoy the crisp mountain air and gorgeous fall colors. With no minimum stay required, book a night for a quick staycation, a getaway week, or more to savor Kanuga or “see the leaves” as long as you like. Kanuga is operating with health and safety measures in place for your protection and that of our staff. 

Autumn B&B Retreats run through November 23, 2020.
Please note that we are pleased to offer reduced rates to members of the clergy, military, and hurricane evacuees. Select from the Book Now dropdown at checkout.

Weekday savings (Sunday-Thursday) will be calculated at checkout.

Please refer to the most up-to-date version of our guest health and safety covenant here. This detailed chart provides a snapshot of which Kanuga services are anticipated to open during the phases of NC’s reopening.

Kanuga provides one meal per day during Autumn Retreats, a continental breakfast, which is included in your stay. Thanks to a relaxing of statewide dining restrictions, we will accommodate a limited number of guests for inside dining. There are also many lovely outside spaces for dining, as well as on your porch or in your cottage.

Kanuga Market offers pick-up snacks, soft drinks, beer, and wine. Guests may bring lunch and dinner options from home, or enjoy local dining in Hendersonville.

Plan to bring your own food and drink for each meal. Camp stoves and grills are allowed, but must be kept and used outside of your cabin. Don’t forget to bring your own plates, eating utensils, and picnic baskets. Campfires are allowed in established fire pits only; firewood may be purchased when you make your reservation, or by calling our front desk to arrange for delivery

Many activities are included with your reservation, including 20 miles of hiking trails, personal worship on your own in Chapel of the Transfiguration, tennis, basketball, and fishing (catch and release). Guests may bring their own kayaks & canoes as long as each person brings a personal flotation device and paddles—waiver required. Sorry, but we cannot accommodate paddle boards. Your favorite spaces, like the rocking chair porch and Daisy’s Lake Trail await your visit this fall. The Library and Fireplace Lounge in the main lodge are also open, as well as the indoor gym.

New! Ride Kanuga mountain bike park, featuring 15 miles of world-class trails for all ages and skill levels, is open. Designed by world-champion Neko Mulally, the new trails have no impact on Kanuga guest hiking and, most importantly, were constructed in compliance with our Forestry Stewardship Plan. Visit to book your mountain biking experience.

Bed linens and towels are provided; please bring your own pillow. Daily housekeeping is not provided, but additional towels and linens are available.

A $150 housekeeping deposit is applied at booking ($75 for Inn rooms), and if your accommodation is left in good condition, refunded. Examples of why a deposit would not be refunded include furniture being rearranged, arts and crafts (such as clay, playdough, paint) left on floors or porches, excessive trash or dirt, furniture taken from other buildings on campus, etc. This deposit may also be utilized to offset additional labor hours needed if established check-out times are not honored.

Please be sure to pack out your trash from the site and surrounding area. #leavenotrace
