We held our wedding and our reception at Sautee Mountain Retreat in Clarkesville, GA, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you are looking for a lovely, relaxing, intimate and affordable wedding and/or reception venue, this is the perfect place.Sent on 11/16/2016
The Event Coordinator, Kathryn, took care of us from our very first inquiries, through selecting vendors and an officiant, to the very last hour of our reception. As we did not employ a wedding planner, her assistance was invaluable. ALL the preferred vendors were impeccable. And, during our ceremony and reception, Kathryn made sure that every detail was flawless and that we and each of our guests had the best day ever. :)
My family and friends continually commented on how the Retreat—the lodges, the garden wedding site, the reception hall, and the wooded environment—were both elegant and deeply relaxing. Moreover, my husband and I and my family took advantage of the lodges for our wedding night. The one-bedroom, four-bedroom, and five-bedroom cottages are well-appointed with every amenity, and I’m sure we will be back for family reunions.
Thanks to everyone at Sautee Mountain Retreat for creating the perfect wedding for us!

I had my sons rehearsal dinner here. We also booked most of the cabins for The wedding party and out of town guest. The dinner was perfect. We had around 100 guest. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The cabins were the perfect set up for accommodating a lot of people while offering privacy,Sent on 08/12/2019

Sautee Mountain Retreat is the absolute best place in North Georgia for a wedding, family reunion, corporate retreat, girls weekend out, etc. Kathryn Vazquez is the best in working with on details, handling changes, being flexible, and having great back-up plans. She is extremely professional, responsive, and so understanding of all the changes we had to make due to our families making last minute decisions. Not only was the personnel outstanding from Kathryn, cleaning personnel, and caterer, but also all the facilities are kept extremely clean, attractive, and well stocked (cabins/villas/lodge). Due to Kathryn's flexibility and unexpected warmer weather, we were able to move our wedding to the Serenity Garden outside by the waterfalls. The facilities and personnel all contributed to having an absolutely wonderful wedding and creating great memories for all the family and friends able to come.Sent on 02/09/2016
The Sautee Mountain Retreat is a treasure, hidden within the hills of Northeast Georgia. Have your wedding ceremony in the hillside garden, as you listen to a cascading waterfall slowly streaming along behind your "I Do's". Afterwards, wind down the path to a cozy large cabin for your reception. Air conditioned in the Summer and warmed by the fire in the winter, a wrap-around porch comfortably suits the guests who meander to the quaint and easily accessible bar area. Do yourself a favor and call Kathryn for a tour today!
Beautiful outdoor wedding site with a gorgeous reception venue. Kathryn is very knowledgeable and easy to work with.
