Dream come true!
I’m so happy that I found Leatherwood for our wedding. It really was a dream come true! The staff and Abbie are amazing. They are just so friendly and enjoy what they do! It was such a breath of fresh air to have such amazing and genuine people working on to make sure your special day goes smoothly. The food for the rehearsal dinner and for the wedding was so yummy. We can’t wait to go back and spend a weekend there.Sent on 11/11/2019

I had the pleasure of staying at Leatherwood last weekend for my niece’s wedding. My family and I rented the Hawks View cabin and it was wonderful. In fact, everything about Leatherwood was wonderful! My extended family raved about their cabins, the views, and the fabulously accommodating staff at Leatherwood!! I had the honor of marrying my niece last weekend and Abbie could not have been more accommodating and organized. She made my job as officiant easier. My niece told me the whole day and evening was exactly how she pictured and dreamed of for her wedding day. Thank you Leatherwood for a fabulous weekend.
Until we meet again,
