Thanks for a great wedding!
My sweetheart and I helped his son and daughter-in-law with wedding logistics as local liaisons since they live out of state. Our first visit to Hidden River had us sold. The owner, Jeanie Sommer guided us through the beautiful venue and explained the many personally designed features available to suit just the wedding they wanted. The setting was ideal, with accommodations for many of their out of town friends and guests as well as the couple themselves. Every request we made was met with good natured cooperation. The staff reflected Jeanie’s desire to make the wedding the best possible for all involved. Many of the 135 guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended, and we agree. We were pleased with every aspect and are recommending Hidden River to anyone who asks.Sent on 10/31/2019

Unique, Memorable and Stress-Free Celebration
My son and his wife selected Hidden River in Swannanoa, NC for their wedding and reception. Both they and I could not be more pleased with every aspect of their special day. Hidden River offers a unique setting – couples along with dozens of their closest family members and friends stayed in the houses that are included as part of the wedding package. The ceremony and reception take place out of doors. The setting of course is beautiful. But what most impressed me was the professionalism and attention to detail that everyone at Hidden River demonstrated in the months leading up to the wedding, the days before the wedding that we stayed at the venue and of course the day of the wedding. Everything went flawlessly. Special requests were greeted with smiles and promptly executed. When we were selecting a venue, owner Jeanne Sommer said that her goal is to make every wedding something that will be unique, something that will be memorable and something that will be enjoyed, stress-free for the couple. Hidden River delivered on all counts. I recommend anyone thinking of holding a wedding in Asheville, NC carefully consider Hidden River for their special day. We are glad we did.Sent on 10/30/2019

Absolutely Perfect Wedding Experience
It almost feels impossible to sum up what an amazing experience it was to have our wedding at Hidden River. We had an intimate wedding (16 guests) on a Monday evening and it was PERFECT. The planning process from start to finish: Excellent communication, accommodating, easy. Every person I interacted with, whether staff of Hidden River or a hired vendor, was incredibly kind, talented, and delightful to work with. And of course, the beauty and peace of the location felt unmatched. I got the wedding of my dreams without 90% of the stress (I don't think you can take 100% of the stress out of any wedding planning, but HRE gets as close as possible). Our wedding was so wonderfully perfect, I would HIGHLY recommend the experience to anyone.Sent on 06/07/2021

We absolutely enjoyed filming at Hidden River. The staff was great & the location was great. It felt like they had so much to offer all hidden in the center of the beauty of our smokey mountains. A great spot for every wedding and event!
I have been servicing brides for hair and makeup for many years here and all of them where so pleased with the beauty and work that goes into this place.
