Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This fairytale Scottish-inspired venue is western North Carolina's only fully functioning castle constructed from historically accurate Scottish architecture.
  • Exchange vows on the aptly-named Mountain View Lawn, with its breathtaking alpine panorama, followed by a reception fit for royalty in the Great Hall.
  • You can spend your wedding night in the dreamy castle itself, while your loved ones will be nestled right nearby at Bear Lake Reserve. The world-class resort boasts condos, villas, and standalone vacation homes. There are ample activities available for your guests to enjoy during their stay including golfing, hiking, boating, or kayaking - just to name a few.
