Winter Wedding on the Mountain
My husband and I got married in the chapel and had our reception in Bailey. Not only was the event space amazing but the staff helped make our wedding perfect. They worked with me to create my dream wedding. We both had a place to get ready and hangout before the wedding. We reserved a wedding block and all of our family stayed on the mountain. It was nice to have everyone in a close space. We had breakfast for our family and friends in the dinning hall the morning after the wedding. Everyone loved getting to get back together for a meal before they left town. We also had the dinning hall cater our wedding. They made two wonderful types of pasta and served it for us in Bailey. They also made appetizers for guests to enjoy while we were taking pictures after our wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in a beautiful part of Fayetteville and have everything in one place.Sent on 05/10/2019

Perfect! Can't say enough good things. Great for a family-centered wedding with lots of kids.
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Mt. Sequoyah, specifically Rebecca. The staff was so accommodating and so flexible. I had many specific requests for our wedding lodging, as I wanted families and friend groups to stay together. Mt. Sequoyah was responsive, positive, and genuinely kept me sane. I would recommend them time and time again. They were amazing! Additionally, we rented one of the lodges for the rehearsal dinner and a reception, and it was a perfect space for lots of kids, for several different hosts, and for any and all caterers. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.Sent on 05/10/2019

Fayetteville Wedding venue
Beautiful venue, easy to work with and very laid back. The staff is incredibly accommodating and the hidden campus lends endless possibilities for creativity with several different spaces. It's also in the middle of town, though it feels completely far away with gorgeous views of downtown Fayetteville.Sent on 05/10/2019
Mount Sequoyah Retreat & Conference Center's reply:We were honored to host your wedding, and loved being able to provide you with the catering for all of the components of your beautiful event as well! Thanks, Alexandra!

This is such a great place for an outside wedding (with an indoor backup!). It is right in the middle of town but on top of Mt Sequoyah, you feel like you are away from it all. It is a convenient location, and the staff have been wonderful to work with.
