Hinton Rural Life Center, Inc.



About Us

Hinton Rural Life Center is a retreat and conference center in Hayesville, NC, where guests can come to retreat, reflect, and renew. We offer meeting and event spaces, overnight accommodations for groups of up to 200, as well as lodging for individuals and families. Hinton is also a mission agency, with year-round opportunities for individual volunteers and mission teams to work with us and “alongside” our neighbors in our Safe and Healthy Home Repair ministry. Other service options include our firewood ministry and our Ervin Sanctuary Gardens & Trails, which are open to Hinton visitors and local residents. With its outreach focus, Hinton seeks to enhance the long-term quality of life in our rural area. We work collaboratively with community partners, hosting the Council for Collaborative Impact four times a year, and through educational opportunities, such as our Leadership Chatuge Community Builders course. Hinton is a United Methodist agency, and we welcome all — all individuals, all faith traditions, and non-faith-based groups seeking to meet, retreat, and serve in a spirit of acceptance and mutual respect.
