Wildacres Buildings and Grounds
Wildacres is a true retreat, undisturbed by traffic or noises of the city. The 1,600 acres are adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway and thousands of acres of the Pisgah National Forest. The buildings are modern yet rustic and provide a very comfortable setting for the programs offered.
Guests stay in two lodges which have a total of 57 bedrooms. Each room has a private bathroom and accommodates two guests. There are no televisions or telephones in the rooms.
Please note that smoking is not allowed in the rooms or in any of the buildings at Wildacres.
Three family style meals are served each day in the dining room, pictured at left.
Wildacres has a 165-seat auditorium for group meetings, lectures, and the many musical concerts and recitals that are held during the master music programs. The adjacent reference library is available for small group sessions and for use by individuals.
Wildacres has a fully equipped lapidary workshop, currently used by three different groups that come to the center for jewelry making workshops.
Our pottery shop is fully equipped and is used by many pottery groups, including the Ringling College of Art and Design.
A 200-seat amphitheater, finished in 2003, provides a beautiful spot for outdoor meetings, gatherings, and campfires.
The patio, located between the lodges, is an excellent location for group meetings and social functions.
Wildacres has eight indoor meeting spaces of different sizes to meet the needs of the groups using the facility.
