About Margaret Bauer

A 4th generation Montreater, I wanted to give our children the opportunity to experience summers and off-season weekends in this beautiful place. We live less than 3 hours away and come up often to stay in our nearby family home. In order to have more flexibility, my husband and I purchased Park Place in 2013, completely renovated it, and gave it a new life. We consider Montreat to be our second home. We hope you will love this place as much as we do!

Margaret Bauer purchased this house in 2013

Wonderful Home and Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Park Place for several days over spring break. The renovation was well executed and the house is well maintained. The home has two decks for relaxing and savoring your morning coffee. We ate dinner on the lower deck and enjoyed the cool April air. There is a park across the street and our four year old played there every day. Restaurants are a quick 4-5 minute drive away. The owners were incredibly responsive and friendly. We plan to book the house again in the fall and take some of our extended family. Great trip that we wished could have lasted a little longer.

Wonderful weekend retreat

  • 4 of 5

We visited Montreat for a friend's wedding and were very fortunate to find Park Place! Park Place was very close to all the wedding festivities and had plenty of space for all of us to stay together. The house had everything we needed for a weekend away. The amenities provided were outstanding and everything was in perfect order upon our arrival. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. We will definitely be staying at Park Place again.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We took our restoration project managers for a well deserved weekend to relax in mountains. Home was clean and had all the essential stuff. Obviously well cared for by owners in a nice quiet neighborhood. Owners were very responsive on any questions we had, which were general, since there were zero issues. We had a blast and will be back again. Thank you for letting us use your home.

Car: recommended

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Montreat is located 20 minutes from downtown Asheville, Biltmore House, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Numerous hiking and biking trails are within minutes of the house. Black Mountain, with it's fabulous restaurants and shopping is a 5 minute drive in quaint little Black Mountain.

About Montreat...

Montreat, NC is a secluded mountain cove community nestled at the foot of Greybeard Mountain and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. We are located in the far eastern portion of Buncombe County near the Eastern Continental Divide. We are blessed with a great variety of native flora and fauna, gently flowing streams and gorgeous mountain vistas.

Life here is lived at a slower, more peaceful pace. There is no commercial development in Montreat, not even a traffic light. Most of the streets are narrow and winding, with much less vehicle traffic than larger town or cities. This is an advantage to our preferred method of travel - walking. Multiple trails wind through hundreds of acres of wilderness surrounding the Town, along creeks, across rustic bridges and through preserved woodland areas.

Montreat, a name created from a portmanteau of 'Mountain' and 'Retreat,' was originally founded as as a spiritual retreat in the early 1900's. The Montreat Conference Center currently hosts year-round religious conferences for all ages. The Conference Center's facilities include a hotel, several guest lodges, a beautiful stone auditorium seating 2,000, a craft center, child care center, children's park and abundant hiking trails.

Montreat College is a four-year co-educational liberal arts college that is independent and Christ-centered. The integration of faith and learning with an emphasis on servant leadership are key elements in the College's educational process. The College brings many special events to Montreat, including symphonies, plays, community arts festivals, adult learning programs community trips abroad and sports programs. Most of the College's facilities are housed in historic stone buildings constructed in the early 1900's. The Chapel of the Prodigal features internationally renowned fresco artist Ben Long's rendition of 'The Return of the Prodigal' and is open to the public.
