NovusWay Conferences

  • Your Conferences - The four NovusWay sites can accomodate groups from 6 to 550 in various meeting and retreat settings.  Whether you are looking for a place away for your corporate team, or a place for your high school band to get away for band camp, NovusWay Conferences can take care of your needs.  Each site is unique but you will find consistency in how our staff anticipate and prepare for your needs to make your event a wonderful experience.
  • Corporate and Board Retreats - Looking for a place to build your team?  NovusWay Conferences can provide everything you need.  Many companies and non-profit boards find our sites perfect for doing planning and learning how to collaborate better.  The blend of comfort, good food, and facilities designed for group-building will make you glad you chose NovusWay.
  • Youth - All of the NovusWay sites had youth in mind when originally constructed.  Youth will find the amenities they need as well as the adventure and entertainment they are looking for.
  • Band Camps- High School bands from across the Carolinas and down into Florida like to retreat to our sites for August Band Camps.  You plan the day and implement the songs and choreography for just your band, but you get off the asphalt at the school on real field, you get temperatures far below what you are used to so you can extend your day, and you don't have kids coming and going when they are so close to home.  One band member said they couldn't help but bond.  One director was amazed at how much they accomplished during their camp.
  • Arts Groups/Associations-Quilters, writers, massage therapists and more find our places away perfect for their needs.
  • Contact us today to see how your group can benefit from a meeting or retreat at NovusWay.

NovusWay Tour

Lodging & Meeting

Groups of 2 to 550 coming together for a multitude of purposes can enjoy the facilities at one of our four locations. Lodging ranges from rustic, comfortable cabins to luxurious and charming hotel-style rooms. Stone fireplaces, wooded views and natural wood finishes create mountain character in meeting spaces, while new construction and state-of-the-art A/V equipment offer versatility.

Food Service

NovusWay Conference Centers provide a range of food service.  At Lutheridge, we partner with Aramark for meal preparation that is nutritious and can cater to any dietary need.  At Lutherock, meals are prepared from local ingredients.  At Luther Springs, there is always plenty of food for your group, and at Lutheranch a large kitchen offers the community building of food preparation.

Four Locations

Nestled across the southeast, NovusWay Conference Centers are located in Asheville and Boone, North Carolina; near Gainesville, Florida; and one hour west of Atlanta, Georgia.  Sites range from vast land far from civilization to 160 acres just two miles from an airport.
