Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It has 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains. This former private residence just 30 minutes from downtown Asheville sits on a ridge overlooking gorgeous vistas: velvety green trees in the spring and summer, and hills of color in the fall.
  • You can get ready on site at the Residence. This impressive home is perfect for bridal party preparations, and its white wraparound porch makes a lovely spot for a cocktail hour. If offers overnight accommodations, too.
  • Packages are customizable, with fun and convenient add-ons. The ceremony includes wooden clear back chairs with setup and breakdown. Additionally, you can opt for lawn games, bar services, a small bites menu, and in-house coordination with the planning team.
