Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 300 guests with whom to celebrate their big day. At Gambill Estates, couples will find contemporary indoor and scenic outdoor locations for their wedding festivities. There is plenty of space on the venue’s grounds for couples to host their wedding ceremony. A large hill overlooking the fields can be set up for a ceremony, or couples are welcome to find a more intimate location among the grasses or trees. For shelter from the elements on a couple's wedding day, along with a breathtaking view of the Appalachian Mountains, ceremonies can be held in the ranch’s Pavilion. The Pavilion offers open-air sides with wooden beams and Victorian-style wrought-iron railings. Cement floors ensure level ground and dry feet on the wedding day as well. Inside the rustic yet modern event hall, couples will find the Grand Room, available to host their reception or other wedding event. This room has walls and a tall cathedral ceiling of horizontal planks of wood, all stretching up from a polished concrete floor. Large windows let in natural light and overlook the venue’s gardens and grasses.
The staff at this venue offers accommodating services to couples for their big day. Before the wedding date arrives, couples will find assistance with event planning to make sure everything runs smoothly. On the day of the wedding, staff members help with setup and cleanup. Other services at this ranch include:
Also in the main event hall couples will find the Bridal Suite and The Kitchen. The Bridal Suite is a luxuriously elegant space for members of the wedding party to join couples in getting ready before the ceremony or reception. Here, couples will find oak floors, delicate chandeliers, coffered ceilings, and Victorian-style furniture in a color scheme of cream and gold. The Kitchen is the perfect staging area for caterers and has its own private entrance with access to the Main Hall. Just steps from the main facility, couples and guests will find climate-controlled restrooms and the Groom’s Quarters. The Groom’s Quarters, located slightly farther than the restrooms, features an open floor plan with a true barn feeling.
Couples are invited to use Gambill Estate for their ceremony, reception, or elopement. For added convenience, the venue provides optional event items that couples may need for their big day. This includes:

Gambill Farms is an absolutely beautiful wedding venue. The view of the Blue Ridge Mountains is breathtaking. Eric, the property owner, is very friendly and attentive to the couple's needs! He offers hay rides (which the kids & grown-up kids loved), and he was there during the rehearsal day and the wedding to make sure that everything ran smoothly. He opened the doors on the reception venue right as the sun was setting for a dramatic view of the mountains. He also made sure the temperature of the room was just right for our guests. The manager, Dustin, works with the bride to answer any questions, and he always got back to me promptly. I recommend this venue to everyone!Sent on 10/29/2013

I couldn’t recommend Gambill Estate enough. I wish there was a way to give more stars! My fiancé (now husband) and I were looking for an affordable venue without sacrificing the views, amenities, and quality of service. After searching for weeks we found Gambill Estate and met with the owner, Eric. From that meeting on we knew we had made the right decision. What an absolutely amazing place to start your forever. Eric was very quick to get back in touch with us and cater to our needs whenever possible. He gave us advice on scheduling, set up, views, everything. And there weren’t 100 different people to go through. You get Eric and he answers everything fo you. He does EVERYTHING! And the view. Oh my God the view... I chose to use the pavilion for the ceremony. A big open area with views of the mountains behind you and the bridal party. It was absolutely breathtaking. I still can’t get over how amazing the entire experience was in great part because of Eric and the Gambill Estate. I can’t express enough how perfect the whole experience was there. I recommend it to everyone I know. Thank you Gambill Estate for making my wedding day so perfect!Sent on 09/27/2018
We love working with Gambill Estate! Professional, friendly, great venue, we highly recommend!
The venue is beautiful! The staff go above and beyond to assist their clients. Perfect for outside ceremonies and close to the Interstate for people that don't live in the area. Fantastic!
This is an amazing venue! I can't say enough about this breathtaking Wilkes County Venue. It has so much to offer for local wedding couples and as a destination wedding venue! I have coordinated and designed flowers for numerous couples at Gambill Farm Events and I want to express how wonderful it is to collaborate with a venue that has a relaxed environment, but can still be recognized as a venue that keeps the grounds beautiful, tidy and can execute a well organized event.
