A magical little dreamy mountain haven

I cannot even begin to explain the magic that is Laurel Falls. Being able to spend the weekend in this dreamy 18 acre location with our loved ones to celebrate our love is something I wish we could do every year. I mayyyyy have shed a tear looking out at the mountains the day we had to leave. If you're thinking about booking, do it!

Kristen, the Events Director, was INCREDIBLE to work with throughout the planning process. She always had answers for my random one-off questions, and I enjoyed those emails frankly. She is such a delight.

Paul, Laurel Falls' owner, was also AMAZING as he called us the day of our rehearsal dinner on The Lodge porch with great news that our linens were arriving just in time for the rehearsal dinner. The attention to detail and well wishes were so very appreciated as we shuffled around to make sure everything was just right. Andy was ALSO incredible helping us on the day of to make sure all our wedding guests knew where they were going.

You just can't beat this level of service, on top of a location that just cannot be replicated. I felt like Snow White surrounded by cute little gophers and birds and my fully adult human dwarves (aka my friends and family it was dope).

Laurel Falls June 2023

Laurel Falls is absolutely spectacular! We’re from Florida, but knew we wanted an intimate mountain wedding, and just happened to stumble across Laurel Falls on google. We booked a weekday wedding in June before even seeing the venue in person, which I was a little nervous about.. but WOW Laurel Falls did not disappoint.
It was everything we imagined and more. We had about 15 family and friends stay with us on site for three days and 47 total guests at the wedding. Everyone was awestruck and continuously asked us how we found this place. The word of the week was ‘magical’. We had friends and family travel in from Minnesota, Florida, Nebraska, Washington, New York, etc. Everyone was easily able to find accommodation in the area and flights were surprisingly smooth with Asheville being just a short drive away.
The cabins were cozy, stocked with everything we needed, and allowed everyone to have their own space/cabin for the three days. The venue itself had so many versatile spaces – we had our ceremony at the boulder site, reception at the rustic barn, rehearsal dinner and brunch on the lodge porch.
As for Laurel Falls staff – Kristen was amazing. She was always available to chat through questions I had and was so organized in all the information she shared with us prior to the wedding. She even provided a vendor list, which was so appreciated because I wasn’t from the area and didn’t know where to start! The day of the wedding there was a staff member on site who worked with our coordinator to ensure everything was set up and ready to go.
I cannot recommend Laurel Falls enough! It was perfect and exactly what we were looking for.

Best decision we made for our wedding!

Laurel Falls - we can't even describe the experience we had, from planning to our magical weekend to follow up after our celebration - everything was exactly as we hoped. Kristen, the event coordinator, is a gift to any bride and groom who discover Laurel Falls, and Paul, the owner, knows how to make you fall in love with the special place he created with his family. EVERYONE at our wedding was amazed by the location and especially those who stayed on the property with us asked over and over how we found this incredible venue. Kristen always answered our questions quickly and we always felt calm and like we were in good hands, even when a few last minute things came up and bad weather was threatening our plans days before. We barely needed anything because the surroundings do all the work for you and there are so many other vendors who love working there that putting it all together was a breeze. We made so many memories and are so glad we decided to do a weekend with our closest loved ones instead of just one single night. We celebrated every night, had bonfires and walks on the property, and took so many beautiful pictures. We didn't want to leave but know that our wedding was so unique and special because we found Laurel Falls.
