My daughter's wedding couldn't have been more perfect. Melody and her staff listened to us and advised us where needed and took the stress of the day off of us so we could just enjoy our time together. Being able to stay there and have rehearsal dinner, breakfast and the whole event right there without having to leave was ideal. Food was terrific from both caterers. Nearby lodging pleased our out of town guests. Helen was so close and a good bit to do so the guys were not bored. I can't say enough about the authentic space. Truly southern and not newly built. Melody and her family and staff truly cared about us and want we wanted to achieve for our daughter's weekend. The Floral design was far beyond what we expected. With us being out of state, there is no way we could have arranged everything without having the stress. So, glad I could just relax and trust that they knew what they were doing. Such a value.Sent on 09/30/2018

Melody and Mountain Laurel Farm created a perfect evening
Everything about our rehearsal dinner was so beautiful....cocktails on the porch overlooking the beautiful fields and mountains, a delicious buffet of Southern specialties, and the tables set across the columned front of the beautiful home. Who knew the Georgia mountains could be so beautiful! Our friends and family from Atlanta, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and DC were all so impressed with the venue, the cuisine, and of course Melody's hospitality and attention to detail.Sent on 09/24/2019

My husband and I just got married at Mt. Laurel Farm last week on 12/15/18. When looking up different wedding venues/ideas for a winter elopment we came across this beautiful place. Melody since day one was always very repsonsive. She always answered any questions we had. I was wanting a winter wedding with a rustic elagant feel and that is exactly what she created between herself and her vendors. It was a nice added touch too when it was just my husband and I that stayed in the B&B. I highly recommend getting married here. The scenery is absolutely stunning and you will not be disappointed.Sent on 12/23/2018
Mountain Laurel Farm is a breathtaking venue with sweeping mountain views full of timless charm and southern hospitality. There is really no other wedding venue/ bed & breakfast quite like it. I highly recommend this venue to any bride and groom searching for the best classic southern wedding venue with a historic farmhouse and white washed barn.
Stunning location set in the Georgia mountains! Absolutely breathtaking venue and great people. This is the perfect place for modern brides looking for spectacular wedding setting. We certainly recommend them.
Nestled in the beautiful mountains with a barn and some homes on the property, Mountain Laurel Farm is the most stunning and fun barn to work with. We are so stoked every time we get a wedding here - always a blast.
