The Overlook Barn sits atop of Beech Mountain, NC and has expansive views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The barn itself spans over 6,500 square feet. When you walk in, you first are awestruck by the 30-foot arched ceilings with exposed wood beams. The Overlook Barn was fully renovated in 2015 with brides and grooms in mind. It is the epitome of rustic elegance. The Overlook Barn can accommodate over 250 guests for a seated dinner indoors and even more for a tented event.

In 2016, Cliffside Barn was renovated and added to the property's offerings. It has original wood floors, a striking chandelier, and a huge glass-paneled garage door that opens up to mountain views. It is a wonderful location for the ceremony or cocktail hour and can also be rented as a standalone rental on weekdays.

We look forward to hearing from you!

    An amazing spot for a romantic elopement!

    After COVID impacted our wedding plans and forced us to postpone to next year, my husband and I decided to salvage our original wedding date and elope with just our immediate families. In the weeks before our elopement date, we stumbled upon Overlook Barn, and knew it would be the perfect spot for our little celebration. The property, with breathtaking mountain views and tons of privacy, truly exceeded all of our wildest expectations – we are so glad we found it, and would encourage anyone who is thinking about an intimate elopement to choose Overlook for their big day!

    Best day of my life

    We had the most magical, dreamy, perfect wedding day at the Overlook Barn. I genuinely couldn't have dreamed up a better day. The bridal suite and groom's suite are to die for and you have so much room. The venue has so much to offer large weddings, outdoor or indoor weddings, elopements, pavilion, fire pit area, the views!!! They recommend all the BEST vendors and make wedding planning the easiest for you!! They even have a house on the property you can stay during your wedding weekend. Seriously it was all a dream, I will be trying to relive this day for the rest of my life. Thank you Overlook for making dreams come true!!!!

    The Most Perfect Wedding Venue

    Like many other families, we had to reschedule our daughter's wedding (originally planned for April) due to Covid.  The Overlook team couldn't have been more understanding, accommodating and positive through the many changes and uncertainties that were to come over the course of the re-planning process.Ultimately, the wedding was a scaled down version of the original plan, and it was perfect in every way! The venue, as our many of our guests said, is "magical", the views are breathtaking, and the staff are top notch: calm, professional, detail oriented, and welcoming. I can't say enough about the wonderful experience our families and friends had at Overlook.  It was a day we will always remember, and we are so happy it all turned out even better than the newlyweds ever imagined!
