old meets new

Old world charm meets modern convenience at our luxurious mountain castle. Built by the family who owned Grandfather Mountain and cofounded the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, this historic gem of Appalachia is rooted deep in Scottish heritage. Though built in the 1960s, the gorgeous grounds and beautiful architecture of Chateau DuMont hint to a time long before the castle's origin. Become immersed in the sixteenth-century charm of cobblestone pathways and stone walls while enjoying the modern conveniences of home. Schedule a tour to experience the charm and beauty of our mountain escape.
