Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked at the heart of the enchanting town of Highlands, this European-inspired resort combines stellar natural views and world-class amenities, creating the ultimate Blue Ridge Mountain retreat.
  • Romantic and rustic, the early 1900s Barn features an antique player piano and a soaring ceiling supported by hearty beams and hung with chandeliers. A stone fireplace warms the space, and an attached colonnade-supported arbor allows guests to enjoy the views, no matter the weather.
  • Intimate events are stunning in the Orchard House, which boasts massive retractable glass doors that open onto the lush English-style gardens, affording plenty of natural light. For larger weddings, consider The Pavilion, which attaches to The Barn and boasts a grand staircase, cathedral ceiling, dramatic rockwork fireplace, and windows that overlook beautiful perennial gardens.
