Summer Retreats

Guest Cottages ~ Camp Cabins

A Time for Renewal, Reflection and Adventure

Summer in the mountains is all you remember: the night sounds, geese on the water, cool nights, shady days, a cool dip in the lake, and a more peaceful pace to connect with nature and each other. Yes, some things are different, but the essence of the Kanuga experience will never change. Reserve a guest cottage, guest house, inn room, or camp cabin this summer! We hope you will join us!

Kanuga has a new chef and he is making his culinary mark at Kanuga. We promise we still have Kanuga toast! But also…. guests this summer are raving about his meals alfresco or in their cottages. Meal options differ by accommodation type.

Many activities are included with Retreats reservations, including nature hikes and walking trails, outdoor worship, lake swimming and boating, tennis, and basketball. Your favorite spaces, like the rocking chair porch and Daisy’s Lake Trail await your visit this summer. Activity options differ by accommodation type.

We are excited to share a new recreational offering! Ride Kanuga mountain bike park is now open! The nine new mountain biking trails (4 more on the way!) were designed by world-champion, Neko Mulally. The new trails have no impact on hiking and, most importantly, were constructed in compliance with our Forestry Stewardship Plan. Kanuga Bike Park will bring new visitors to Kanuga year-round.
