Leatherwood is such a wonderful place to get married, the amenities are abundant and the staff is amazing. Abbie is an incredible coordinator. She is so helpful, caring, funny, and guys….she really knows her stuff! My mother and I would not have been able to pull this wedding off without her. Trevor’s food is so delicious, guests from our wedding are still raving about him/food. Abbie was very accommodating and patient. She has great suggestions and ideas if you’re feeling stuck when it comes to the decision-making process. Leatherwood made everything so easy and enjoyable that if we had to do this all over again (thank God we don’t) we would not hesitate to go straight to the wonderful people at Leatherwood Mountain Resort, they're AMAZING!

Abbie was AMAZING to work with! Sad that our wedding is over, but having it at Leatherwood was amazing and we wouldn't have changed any detail!

Our daughter's wedding was perfect, in spite of any rain, it was such a wonderful day! Abbie did a great job coordinating the ceremony especially with the music since we were unable to rehearse with the music. Everything went smoothly and our dinner catered by Leatherwood was very good. We had many complements on the food! This is a great venue and we hope to come back and stay in the cabin we rented and enjoy those beautiful mountains!

Leatherwood is a beautiful location with the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains as your back drop. They have a few lovely reception areas depending on the size of your wedding. The outdoor ceremony space is so romantic. The staff is very accommodating and great to work with, especially with Abby in the lead-- she is absolutely down-to-Earth and solution oriented. I've never had a bad time there!
