Kanuga B&B Retreats

Retreats with Continental Breakfast included
through July 1, 2021


Early summer in the mountains is here and it’s all that you remember: the night sounds, geese on the water, cool evenings, shady days, invigorating dips in the lake, and a more peaceful pace to connect us with nature and each other. 

We invite you—our returning and new guests—to enjoy Kanuga’s 1,400 acres, 30-acre lake for swimming and boating, 20 miles of hiking trails, and Ride Kanuga mountain bike park, with lodging in historic guest cottages, guest houses, and inn rooms (inn rooms available beginning May 27.)

Beginning May 1, 2021, Kanuga B&B Retreats are available for weekday as well as weekend bookings.

Kanuga offers reduced rates to members of the clergy, military, and hurricane evacuees. Select from the dropdown menu at checkout.

There is a two-night minimum for Kanuga B&B Retreats.

Because we love our guests and staff, we continue to make the best operating decisions given the size of our property, facilities, and resources. Please refer to our guest health and safety covenant.
