    We recently got married on Sunday September 9, 2018 at Chestnut Mountain Resort and from the blessings above, had the most perfect day! We lucked out with the weather and all. If you’re looking for a rustic, country yet elegant venue, I highly recommend Chestnut Mountain! Joan Dillion our wedding coordinator was amazing to work with. Joan was very professional and very flexiable when it came to working around our crazy work schedules! The event staff was great, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect! We highly recommend looking into Chestnut for your next event!

    Joan and the rest of the staff at Chestnut Mountain made our wedding experience phenomenal! We had our ceremony at the Grand View Pointe and our reception in the Vista Room inside the lodge. Most of our guests stayed at the hotel on-site. We loved having everything on-site and not having to worry about transportation.

    We also used the restaurant for our rehearsal dinner and, as most of our guests were from out of town, had a Welcome Event on Friday evening.

    Joan and the entire staff was very accommodating during every part of the wedding planning process, from booking the venue, to the food tasting, and finally the weekend of the wedding.

    I would highly recommend Chestnut as a wedding venue!
