Guest Cottages & Houses - Camp Cabins - Camp Sites


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.

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.

GUEST COTTAGES & HOUSES – October 9-25, 2020 – Full Meal Plan available*
Featuring an incredible menu of FRESH, DELICIOUS meals prepared in the Kanuga kitchens by our Guest Chef from Camp Pinnacle! Breakfast and supper will be served by staff buffet-style. Tasty boxed lunches will be ready for you to pick up and enjoy. And, thanks to a relaxing of statewide dining restrictions, we plan to accommodate a limited number of guests for inside dining in Dietz Dining Room. 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.

*While meals are not included in your lodging fee and not required, they are also not available “by the order per meal” as they would be in a restaurant. Guests may reserve a day’s worth of all three meals, but not just “supper,” “lunch,” or “breakfast” only for any given day.

Since conference center meals are not available, so plan to bring your own food and drink. 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 nature hikes and walking trails, personal outdoor worship, personal worship on your own in Chapel of the Transfiguration, tennis, and basketball. 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.

Upon check-out, trash should be placed in outside bins and furniture arranged as it was at check-in.

A $150 housekeeping deposit is applied at booking, and if the cottage 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.

No linens, pillows, or other bedding are provided, so please bring your own. Cabins will be disinfected and sanitized prior to your arrival, following CDC and health department guidelines. Paper towels and toilet paper will be provided, and there are on-premise laundry facilities, but bring your own detergent! Daily housekeeping will not be provided.

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