    Absolutely Amazing!!

    McGuire’s Millrace Farm is absolutely breathtaking! From the views to the INCREDIBLE staff, our wedding day was absolutely perfect! We live in Florida and planned a destination wedding at McGuires. They exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond! We received so many compliments from our wedding guests about the McGuire family and staff. Natalie, the venue/event coordinator, is a breath of fresh air and has such a calming presence about her. The food was to die for! We had the brisket, mashed potatoes, veggies, and Mrs. Linda’s yeast rolls. So tasty!! If you’re looking for the perfect place to get married, you have found it! You won’t be disappointed. McGuire’s Millrace Farm has earned a very special place in our hearts and we can’t wait to go back to visit!

    From the moment I spoke with Natalie on the phone, just calling to ask some questions, I loved my experience with McGuire's. This place is so magical my husband even proposed here! The staff is so kind and professional, they make you feel comfortable, at home, and confident in your choice of venue. And let's not forget the food was AMAZING, I mean we seriously enjoyed it. What a day-they made all of our dreams come true, this place is a gem. You will not regret it, everything, every piece was an absolute win! I was so thrilled that it worked out, in fact we even changed the date of our wedding so we could get married at this place. We moved the wedding up three weeks so we could have the dreamy birch trees! We loved how family oriented this venue is as well, everyone involved, it made it such a personal experience. Thank you to everyone involved at McGuire's for making this our best day ever. Y'all are incredible, I wouldn't change a thing, it was absolutely perfect. Natalie, Evan and the squad did a stellar job, they went above and beyond, every interaction with them was sweet. I think it is such a gift having everything all in one place, it is so helpful not having to find an outside caterer! Natalie and Evan are absolute gems and so easy to work with, so kind and have calming personalities while all the things are happening. This is truly a special place, everything is based around their family and we loved that. Seriously do not hesitate to check this place out-it is GORGEOUS, and the staff are PHENOMENAL. The birch trees people-dreamy, whimsical and pure magic. This place is five stars nestled in the valley of the blue ridge mountains. I could go on and on about how easy it is to plan a wedding with these folks, especially when they helped me plan my favorite day ever in two and half months! I have no bad things to say about this place and these people, I could speak goodness about this property and people for a while. WHAT A DREAM.

  • NB Photography Wedding Photographers

    McGuire's Millrace Farm is a photographer's dream. The stunning vistas, beautiful details, gorgeous event barn, well appointed (and lovely) lodge and the original buildings around the property join together with an incredible staff to create my absolute favorite venue. The owners are hands-on and supremely knowledgeable. The layout of the venue itself makes logistics a breeze; as a professional wedding photographer this is paramount- it makes moving from one photoset to the next a smooth process that requires little time. I have photographed many weddings there, and I'm always surprised at how I don't run out of unique views or gorgeous backgrounds, regardless of the weather, season, or time of day. The staff shines even brighter than the rest of the venue- they are the perfect hosts for any wedding, small or large. Working with Natalie is a total joy! Believe me, you can't go wrong with McGuire's.

  • Cease Fire Productions Wedding DJs

    This is an awesome venue and the people that work here are wonderful. Natalie is so pleasant to work with as a vendor and the hospitality is beyond what I have experienced at many venues. Her and her team rock!

  • Broadcast Pro Photo Wedding Photographers

    McGuire's Millrace Farm is one of the premiere wedding venues in the Tri-sate area. As a professional photographer familiar with many wedding venues this is one of the best. There are countless photographic opportunities all over the farm. I was most impressed on how they give treat their clients the royal treatment. Pay them a visit and you will fall in love with this place.
