What to expect when you arrive...
Parking is located beside the Kirk Apartments as well as up the drive behind the apartments. Parking may also be available along South Carolina Terrace but it is often filled by Montreat student's vehicles during the school year. Carpooling is suggested due to limited parking in Montreat during peak seasons.
The mountains of western North Carolina have periods of abruptly changing weather through all the seasons. During the summer we can have days in the 90s and evening temperatures can drop into the 50s. It is suggested that you bring along multiple layers of clothing. Umbrellas are also a good idea at times. Montreat offers 20+ miles of great hiking trails so bring your boots! There are also many popular mountain biking areas in the area. SC Inn makes a great "base camp" for those wanting to get out and explore all that this area has to offer.
When there are 12 or more guests, breakfast is served from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. in the main kitchen. We attempt to provide a full country breakfast with a variety of choices. We will be glad to answer any specific questions regarding ingredients. If you have any special dietary requirements it is suggested that you provide your own food.
We strive to make SC Inn a self-service guest lodge. It should feel like your home in the mountains. At the time of your arrival, please sign the check-in list provided in room 5 on the main floor of the William Brearley Home. The staff of SC Inn are usually available during morning hours to answer any questions or address any maintenance concerns. Please call the office line to leave a message. Cell phone coverage is spotty in parts of Montreat but usually very good for most providers at SC Inn.
The suite and kitchenette apartments, all except 101 and 102, are equipped with cooking utensils, dinnerware, microwave, toaster, refrigerator, and range/oven. There is the "Patio Kitchen" available 24/7 for guest use in the main house located on the ground floor next to the main kitchen and dining room.
Your reservation balance is due prior to departure and can be combined with any breakfast expenses. Credit cards are accepted (Visa & MC) as well as cash or checks. Please see the Reservations Page for more details.
Check In 3:00 p.m. Check Out 11:00 a.m.
We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy your stay at South Carolina Inn, "Your Home in the Mountains!"
