Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It's a gorgeous mountainous getaway just a short drive from Asheville, with sweeping Blue Ridge Mountain views and a rustic, welcoming vibe.
  • Host a grand, all-outdoor affair on the expansive grounds or an intimate celebration in the log cabin-inspired Lodge, with vows exchanged by the fireplace and a cozy dinner in the gracious dining room.
  • Your rental includes weekend use of the full 76-acre property, including the sleeping quarters for up to 50 guests in the Lodge and the wonderful, A-frame Sunrise Cottage.
