The Mountain Retreat includes the majority of Little Scaley Mountain. The facilities are on top of the mountain, where there are great views from the decks of buildings and the tower. The sunset photo above, was taken from the tower (photo at right was taken earlier in the day). While the view from the top of the tower was beautiful, the wind was howling!
The mountain top is a rock bald with a forest of ancient wind-sheared white oak (krummhloz), that are 400 to 500 years old. The view from the deck of the Lodge where we were staying was wonderful!
