Mountain Lens is a unique twenty-acre retreat nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains that offers educational programs for photographers and other creative individuals. Even if you’re not a photographer, Mountain Lens offers peaceful getaways for nature-lovers. Our primary mission is to help photographers and other artists nurture, share, and master their craft and artistry in a peaceful and supportive environment.
Our training center steps out to a serene pond, a scenic waterfall, two footbridges, and a mile of trails along meandering creeks and a forested hillside. Steps away are an elegant two-suite cottage and a private carriage house, accommodating up to eleven people for extended stays and workshops.
You’ll be less than fifteen minutes from Hendersonville’s charming shops and restaurants, with Brevard and Asheville easily within reach.

And just outside of our training center and cottages are twenty acres that feature ponds, waterfalls, and over a mile of cleared trails and footbridges along meandering creeks, through a forested hillside, and up to a boulder-strewn hilltop. Photo opportunities abound right on the property, with many more in the nearby DuPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
