The MOA will host another great MOA Getaway at the Fontana Village
Resort on April 22-24, 2016. The beautiful Fontana Village Resort will be the base of
operations for all there is to see and do in the area.
For those not familiar, the Fontana Village Resort is located in Fontana Dam, NC (N35 26.218 W83 49.468) and served as the home for the men and women that constructed the magnificent Fontana Dam in the 1940’s. Today the resort is a blend of the old and new with a magnificent lodge, cabins and even tent and RV sites available as accommodations.
Arrive anytime on Friday and join us for a reception in the Recreation Hall. We’ll have a selection of hot hors d’ oeuvres and cool drinks for you and a cash bar will be available. We encourage you to bring your bike, park out front and hang out with us. This will be a great time to mingle and make new friends as we tell tall tales, kick tires and take names!
Throughout the evening, plan your Saturday adventure as we’ll have information available on area rides and points of interest you can explore around the area. Great roads and interesting spots beckon no matter which direction you go. The almost endless list includes the famous Deal’s Gap, The Cherohala Skyway and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Suggested rides will vary in length so you can choose what best fits your schedule for the day.
Get up early and head out or sleep in late, Saturday is your day to ride the area or just relax and enjoy the resort. Whatever you plan for the day, make sure you are back at the Recreation Hall in time for a fantastic North Carolina style barbeque dinner. Be prepared to share details of your day’s adventure with those at your table and we’ll give away some great door prizes too!
The $89 event fee includes the Friday night reception, Saturday night catered dinner, an event t-shirt along with a special gift at check-in and your chance at some great MOA merchandise and door prizes that will be given away on Saturday night. Event fees are refundable until March 22nd, 2016. After March 22nd, no refunds will be given.
There are a variety of accommodations available including lodge rooms and cabins. RV and tent camping sites are available and located nearby at the base of the huge dam. Lodge rooms with both king and twin bed rooms are available on a first come, first served basis. We have also reserved several “Azalea” two bedroom cabins that will provide ideal accommodations for two couples. Contact the resort directly for discounted cabins and camping rates. Please note that due to the popularity of Fontana Village, the resort will strictly enforce its reservation cancellation policy. Please be aware of the policy when reserving your accommodations as the BMW MOA will not be responsible for cancellation fees charged by the Village.
Book your Weekend Getaway now as space is limited and we anticipate this Weekend Getaway will sell out quickly.

The MOA Getaways are designed to provide a smaller more intimate opportunity to meet like- minded riders in fun and exciting locales around the country. As you can see this one has all those desired elements and is going to be a great time! The total group size is limited 100 participants so book early to reserve your spot. We look forward to seeing you there!
