    Unforgettable

    We thoroughly enjoyed our October wedding in Lonesome Valley, a dream come true. When I first started looking at wedding venues, I fell in love with Lonesome Valley. Planning a wedding in NC from Florida had some unique challenges, and Sarah and her team were instrumental to making it happen. The views at the venue can't be beat, and neither can the food! The Chef did an incredible job taking some of our favorites and elevating them beyond our expectations. I'm still drooling over the truffle mashed potatoes! If you're looking for a romantic, elegant, intimate space, this is the one for you.

    Simply Amazing

    When we first went to dinner at lonesome valley 4 years ago, I was immediately struck by it’s beauty and knew I wanted to get married there one day. Then I ate their amazing food, and it sealed the deal! I hadn’t felt that way anywhere else. We did a fall wedding to save a little money, as the venue was a majority of our budget. The Lonesome Valley team made us feel so loved and valued through planning. They didn’t nickel-and dime you like I hear many of my friends having done by other venues.
    We had a meeting with the manager, the head chef, the coordinator (Sarah), and and baker about 6 months before the wedding. They asked us to think of memories that we had with certain meals, so we could have them incorporated into the reception. It was nothing I’d thought of before-most weddings I’ve been to just have chicken or steak! They also made an ice cream bar with homemade churro bowls, as my husband loves both of those! They did our wedding cake, which tasted so so good. Sarah was AMAZING and helped coordinate with our planner and other vendors. She was so helpful and supportive. The staff were amazing to our guests, and I felt that they were happy to be there working. The day of went so perfectly, and I know it’s because of the hard work of the staff at Lonesome. Thank you all so so much for making our day perfect. Get married here, you won’t regret it.

    Beautiful, personable, and foodie heaven

    Lonesome and the staff pulled off the most incredibly beautiful wedding ceremony set up and provide an exquisite menu that was crafted just to our tastes and traditions and preferences. Every food item was incredible which was my biggest priority and they delivered on their promises plus some! The entire evening from ceremony to last dance was flawless with excellent service, friendly and upbeat staff persons busily making sure all the details were perfect. The setting and backdrop are just breathtaking and the staff had the setup down so smoothly it was seamless. Many guests have said “that was the best wedding I’ve ever been to”. As the bride I was able to relax and be with my new husband and all my loved ones without a single worry. Most highly recommend!
