Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked within 900 pristine "forever protected" acres on the banks of the Hickory Nut Creek, this dreamy retreat center is surrounded by lush forest, cascading waterfalls, and miles of beautiful hiking trails.
  • Exchange vows on the shore of the creek, beside the tranquil pond, or by the stone ruins of the original farmhouse. Then, move inside to the rustic lodge for a reception wrapped in log cabin style. There's room outside for a tent, too, if you'd like to keep things totally al fresco.
  • There are four rooms in the cozy lodge for overnight guests, as well as a lovely honeymoon cottage with a private deck overlooking a waterfall. During the day, you and your guests can explore the forest, or head into Asheville for the area's best food and entertainment.
