Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A private retreat with some truly stunning views, this special lodge is set on a dramatic rise just outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. From its lofty perch, you’re treated to an unobstructed view of the misty mountains and of Clingman’s Dome, the highest point in the park.
  • Take your pick from three nature-forward ceremony spots (we’re partial to the breathtaking Great Smoky Mountains Overlook, but the Terraced Lawn and Pond are both perfection, too.) Then, celebrate in the charming vintage barn, with its classic gambrel roof, or beneath the stars on the sprawling event lawn.
  • The Chalet Lodge sleeps up to sixteen guests across seven rooms, each with its own private outdoor space—it’s a little bit Swiss, a little bit modern, a whole lot of gorgeous. For still more luxury, check out the Spa Suites, where you’ll relax in a deep soaking tub to the crackling sounds of a cozy fireplace.
