Broad River Inn is a hotel wedding venue located in Chimney Rock, North Carolina. This inn features a unique and rich history. Originally, the first building erected on the property functioned as a tavern. However, as the years went by, it changed purposes and ownership. Renovations and old sites were torn down and new ones erected in their place. It was in 2002 that the historic inn was purchased and reopened by Larry and Carol Lane. They also added on to the property many fun features like the 18-hole mini golf course. In this casual and cozy setting, couples can gather with their loved ones and host not only their ceremony and reception, but also their bridal shower, engagement party, and rehearsal dinner. Due to the intimate and romantic nature of the inn, it is also ideal for hosting elopements. Regardless of the wedding celebration you are hosting, you and your guests will be situated in a convenient location in the downtown city area, which means you will find many fun things to do and explore before and after the wedding.

Day of Bliss
My wedding was held at the Broad River Inn and it was a dream come true. Ali was our wedding planner and transformed the bed and breakfast into the wedding venue of our dreams. Communication was very easy and the staff took time listening and tending to our requests and thoughts. It was very clean and original. There were flowers and lights and music and dancing. It was honestly the best day of my life and I’m not sure I would be able to say that without having had my wedding the Broad River Inn; actually the Inn really helped make our day what it was. We didn’t have a worry in the world, only the excitement of getting to marry each other in such a beautiful romantic location. I would recommend the Inn and it’s staff to absolutely everyone. It’s not about the money to them, it’s about your experience.Sent on 02/21/2019

Love, love, love this place!
The Broad River Inn has become our go to spot for special occasions. What started out as a coffee spot turned into the perfect spot to hold our wedding rehearsal. The staff makes you feel welcomed and accommodates everything you could every need or want. The venue itself if beautiful. We decided decorations would be at a minimum to accent the beauty of the building. The food was great, drinks were on point and the service was amazing. We enjoyed this experience so much that we celebrate birthdays there along with other special occasions and plan to continue to do so for future events. If anyone is looking for the perfect place to hold events this place has you covered.Sent on 02/20/2019
