About Us

Now offering inclusive packages for the busy bride as well as 40 hr wkly office helpline for the DIY bride!


Offering medieval ambiance partnered with today's elegance and luxury, this authentically recreated Scottish border castle has been chosen by The Knot magazine as one of their "10 historic venues we love". Once a private estate, Castle Ladyhawke is now offered for weddings, special events, and private or corporate retreats. Available for one day events for up to 200 guests, the castle sits high on a ridge overlooking the Tuckasegee River in the spectacular mountains of Western North Carolina. This 62 acre gated estate is Western North Carolina's most private and romantic location for weddings and other special events. With both garden and interior locations for ceremonies and receptions, unpredictable weather is never a problem at Castle Ladyhawke. Since we book only one event per day you will have your choice of locations for your festivities; and  can adapt to changing conditions effortlessly.
We offer venue only rentals for the entire day, fully or partially inclusive packages for the busy bride, and two elopement packages for smaller weddings. Full day rentals allow you ample time to prepare and enjoy the castle's 10,000 sf including our three spacious bedroom suites, authentic English Pub with pool table, darts, and big screen television, and many patios and balconies.We now offer guest accommodations at both our medieval styled Fable Village at Castle Ladyhawke or our whimsical Gypsy Camp so you and your guests can extend your magical experience; even the castle itself may be reserved for an overnight stay for up to twelve guests.  Best suited for weddings of up to 200 guests, Castle Ladyhawke is located just one hour from Asheville’s Regional Airport, and ten minutes from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee.

Oh my gosh, what's not to love about this gorgeous castle nestled in the most beautiful mountains on earth? I came across Castle Ladyhawke on a fluke, and I'm so glad I did. We rented the castle for the entire weekend, reserved all the cottages for our family members and just made a big ol' party of it. The castle staff is WONDERFUL, and the entire weekend was perfect. It was the most special weekend of my life, and I'll never forget it.
