Equinox is located just outside the beautiful town of Bat Cave, North Carolina.
Our campus is just a short drive from Asheville (35 minutes), upstate South Carolina (Greenville/Spartanburg – 1 hour), Charlotte (2 hours), Winston-Salem and Greensboro (2 hours), and Atlanta (3 hours). We are within a 10-15 minute drive of some of the best attractions that the North Carolina mountains have to offer. Bat Cave is four miles away and has a general store and post office.
Five more scenic miles bring you to Lake Lure, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey practiced dance moves in the moonlit water in the hit 80’s movie Dirty Dancing. There are several restaurants in the quaint town of Lake Lure, ranging in fare from old world Italian or German dining to a casual Tiki bar. Just down the road from Lake Lure is Chimney Rock Park, a thousand-acre pet-friendly park whose main attractions are the 404-foot high Hickory Nut Falls and breathtaking Exclamation Point, which offers a stunning view of the gorge below. Nearby attractions to our year-round treatment camp for boys also include gem mining and whitewater rafting. Asheville, North Carolina, a popular destination for entertainment and fine dining, is a forty-minute trip from Equinox.
Asheville area attractions include the 1898 Biltmore Estate, the five-star spa at Grove Park Inn, award-winning golf courses, historic trolley tours of downtown Asheville, dozens of regionally renowned restaurants, and Beer City USA’s many local breweries. Closest airports can be found in the cities of Asheville, Greenville/Sparanburg, and Charlotte.
