    I am impressed with this beautiful venue.

    Nice clean facilities and easy to navigate kitchen.
    Lots of counter/refrigeration/freezer space. I chose to cook on premise for 50 ppl so I had to come prepared with lots of stuff. The owners are very accommodating for my specific needs. Book with confidence.

    I can't say enough good things about this venue!!!

    This venue is absolutely amazing and is an excellent value for everything that you get when you book your event!! Jody was so easy to work with throughout the whole process and made things so easy for us that we didn't have to worry or stress over too much on our big day.

    The location is absolutely amazing, tucked away in the Nantahala National Forest, private, quiet and the views... stunning. You really, honestly, can't go wrong with this venue!
