Golden Horseshoe Inn was amazing from start to finish! My brother was the groom and as his best lady I was filled in on all the info and communication that happened from my new sister in law :) She was so happy with how things turned out! The staff is excellent! Polite, helpful, and so on top of everything. One staff member, Brittany Ann, turned out to be my name twin so I insisted on a selfie ;) The setting is intimate without being crowded and the scenery is really cute! They married outside on the deck that overlooks a small pond. My daughter and niece, both were flower girls, plus the ring bearer enjoyed playing in the little garden. The photographer there also made sure to take tons of photos, which is always a good thing as far as weddings go...you definitely want those memories later on! Thank you again to everyone involved in helping, it was a lovely day!!

I cannot begin the thank Heather and Brittany enough for making our daughter's wedding day a dream come true! From the time we walked into the door ( and realized we knew each other) to the time we walked out the door after the wedding everything was done to perfection. You made us feel like we were the most important people to walk through the door.
If you are looking for an intimate all inclusive venue with attention to detail then the Golden Horseshoe Inn is the place for you. Everything from the atmosphere to the drinks, food, decor, and photography is top notch.

Professional Network & Endorsements

One of my all time favorite venues. Attention to detail, personalized, artistic, soft elegance, beautiful, creative, experienced. Heather is a true gem as well.

When I play my harp for a wedding at the Golden Horseshoe Inn, I always look forward to a relaxed and well-planned event that might have been pulled out of a movie. The beautiful mountains, the historic home, the quiet intimate setting and the friendly team of professionals all pull together to create a truly magical experience for all!

The Golden Horseshoe Inn is always a great experience. Heather really goes the extra mile in making her couples feel at home and relaxed on their wedding day. Everything is well planned and taken care of for you in advance. She also has a continually growing collection of unique props which really enhance the quality and diversity of the photos you can take there. The Facility and Grounds are a wonderful place for photography with lovely decorations, furniture, and Garden settings. Let's not forget the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop. I highly reccomend The Golden Horseshoe Inn for your Small Wedding.

The Owners and Staff of the Blue Ridge Mountain Inn are such a pleasure to work with. Our Elopement Wedding Cakes are well taken care of, so I can only imagine how the Bride and Groom are pampered when they arrive for their intimate wedding at the Blue Ridge Mountain Inn. The view is amazing!
