What’s all this talk about Quietude?
Quietude: “A state of stillness, calmness and quiet in a person or place.”
Quietude is a micro-retreat center located in Black Mountain, NC, dedicated to the cultivation of the Inner Life. Quietude provides a container for awareness, introspection and personal development. Quietude is rooted in the understanding that we all benefit from periodically taking time out from our day-to-day routines and responsibilities. Book a retreat at Quietude to de-stress, re-set and realign.
Built in 1926 as a hunting and fishing lodge, the two acre property features the original main lodge and nine cabins. Appointed in simplicity and situated in proximity to the charming town of Black Mountain and the magic and grandeur of the surrounding mountains, Quietude provides a unique setting for your solo retreat or for joining with others in a variety of activities.

“God is the friend of silence. See how nature, trees, flowers, grass, grow in silence; see the stars, the moon, and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”
