About

Appalachian Lodge at River's Bend is a premier wedding venue tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, North Carolina. Overlooking the French Broad River, guests are invited to unobstructed and unparalleled views of the tranquil mountainside. Appalachian Lodge at River's Bend is committed to providing couples with an enchanting experience - not just a venue. The alfresco elements combined with the rustic-yet-elegant decor mean that couples won't be compromising on luxury or style on their special day.

Facilities and Capacity

Rain, hail, or snow, the venue caters to all events owing to the covered lower and upper decks, accommodating up to 100 guests. There is a beautiful indoor reception area along with a bridal suite and groom's den for couples to prepare ahead of the celebrations. The lodge is hidden nicely in the mountain region that suggests an element of privacy and seclusion. However, the lodge is still close enough to the hub of Marshall to experience all the area has to offer. Couples celebrating at the Riverhouse have the opportunity to rent the Mountain House, which is minutes away from the lodge and can accommodate 18 guests.

Services Offered

The venue can cater to receptions, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, and elopements. The lodge has a preferred vendors list that includes florists, catering, photography, cakes, officiants, and DJ services, which can relieve the decision-making process. The lodge offers both micro-wedding and full-wedding packages to fit your vision and budget. Other services also include onsite parking and valet services, table, chairs, flatware, linens, and set up and clean up. The Appalachian Lodge at River's Bend's preferred event planner can assist you in designing your dream wedding.

Absolutely amazing!

The views alone were amazing (pictures don't do it justice- trust me! I visited in January and it still took my breathe away!). You work directly with the venue owners which is an absolute plus. They went above and beyond! Also loved having Cooper there! They added whiskey barrels while I was still in the planning stage- which they kept me well informed! I would highly recommend renting out the Mountain house as well! It was an awesome experience! Couldn't have been happier with my experience!

Jaw dropping

There are two venues with Appalachian Lodge. We booked the River House. It was brand spanking new. The view, the house, everything was speechless. We worked directly with the venue owner and she went ABOVE and BEYOND for us. A must see and a must book.
