Only 5 miles off the Blue Ridge parkway, Laurel Ridge Retreat provides a breath taking view of the Blue Ridge mountains at a rate below most hotels. The vista is so spectacular that on a clear day you can see the skyline of Winston-Salem 77 miles away. I recently spent a quiet and restful week in the Gemein house at... More

Serene, peaceful, clean , MAJESTIC setting, staff and grounds amazing. Loved every minute of my stay. Stayed at the Gemein House, which means "seeking communion with God". If you are looking to connect with God and nature, this does not disappoint!

I love going to Laurel Ridge. I begin to feel more peaceful on the ride up the mountain and as I walk the grounds I feel more at peace than any other place. The trees and the trails add to my sense of freedom and peace.

The lady behind the front desk even drew us an intricate and useful map that was even better than the one provided through their local chamber.
