Belmont, North Carolina

Where Southern Charm Blossoms.
Surrounded by the natural beauty of rich forests, rolling hills and rambling banks of Lake Wylie and the Catawba River, Belmont beckons a wealth of year-long visitors with varied interests.
Once a community where the textile industry served as the lifeblood, Belmont is a burgeoning success story of thriving growth and redevelopment. A picturesque blend of old-fashioned nuances, Belmont offers historical homes, streetlamps, brick sidewalks and the simpler times of “back then.” These are the branches that support a budding business atmosphere of today, that embrace the beautiful Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, and that help to nourish arts, culture, shopping and an assortment of fascinations for all ages to enjoy. With its close proximity to Charlotte, Belmont allows visitors to take advantage of big-city amenities while enjoying a comfortable stay in a place with small-city charm.

Whether you’re visiting us for the first time for a vacation getaway or returning for a daytime activity, you’re sure to enjoy a truly unique experience in Belmont. We extend a most charming welcome to you!
