Absolutely Amazing!

We had an amazing wedding partly thanks to Serenity Ridge for their amazing work to make sure our catering and venue was set up perfectly.
This truly is an all inclusive venue. They did our wedding cake which was delicious and our catering which everyone enjoyed so much. Everyone said the food was phenomenal which we agreed! All of our guests said they had a great time and that it was such an enjoyable wedding and beautiful view. We used the cabins, house, and yurt which were all super comfortable and clean. Also, having the fire in the pavilion to hang out with our wedding party before and after the wedding was wonderful. Beyond glad we choose Serenity Ridge! Amazing venue and people!
Thank you!

Best Weekend Ever

Couldn’t have asked for a better wedding than our wedding at Serenity Ridge. They are more inclusive than any other venue we looked at, our rental order was minimal because of everything they have to offer. The property is beautiful with not only onsite accommodations, but plenty of local accommodations for those out of town. The weather was perfect for our wedding but I’m still confident rain or shine, all seasons, Serenity Ridge is the perfect wedding space. The view of the mountains during the day and the stars at the end of the night is unreal. The communication was great, they are very professional and straightforward. You can tell they have years of experience in the wedding business. Their website is SUPER informative and they even have a virtual tour of the entire property! I felt so at ease working with their staff for everything to come together and they exceeded our expectations for our wedding weekend! Everyone loved the American Buffet and my husband still can’t stop talking about the crostini appetizers. Their attention to detail did not go unnoticed, there was a gift waiting for us in the Yurt the night of our wedding and s'more's kits in every cabin for the fire pit. All of our guests were so impressed with this hidden gem in Mill Spring, you just don’t find places like this so close to home. Thank you Haley and Serenity Ridge staff for helping us have a the best day, we are forever grateful!

This mountain wedding venue is an absolute Gem!

Absolutely breathtaking! Five Stars All the Way!!!

Serenity Ridge surpassed all our dreams as a wedding venue, and the owners are nothing short of phenomenal! From the very start of our wedding planning journey, they showered us with their friendly and attentive care, ensuring that every detail was handled with precision and thoughtfulness.

Working with Haley was an absolute joy during our pre-wedding preparations. She was incredibly responsive, going the extra mile to provide us with a wide range of options and details while efficiently creating a dream experience that fit seamlessly within our budget.

When our wedding weekend finally arrived, they went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations in every way! Their communication and assistance throughout the weekend remained prompt and attentive, alleviating any potential stress along the way. Everything was flawlessly set up and meticulously cleaned afterward, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in soaking in every moment of our special day and the entire weekend.

The venue itself is a slice of paradise. The awe-inspiring mountain views provided a spectacular backdrop for both our ceremony and reception! Even with a rainy day, the Hilltop house was a perfect and cozy gathering spot for our intimate group of 30 guests. Saturday morning's hike on the property's trails added an extra touch of adventure without ever having to leave the property. A few of the evenings were really chilly mountain nights, and the fire pavilion was a perfect spot to continue the celebrations, complete with good music and endless hours of laughter.

Every corner of Serenity Ridge is impeccably maintained, showcasing its charm and beauty at every turn. And let's not forget about the food! The catered reception dinner was an absolute hit, leaving our guests raving and satisfied with every dish served.

The cherry on top? Serenity Ridge offers short-term stays in their yurt, six cabins, or the Hilltop house, making it the perfect spot for future anniversary celebrations. We cannot sing their praises enough; this venue is an absolute gem, and we feel incredibly fortunate to have celebrated our special day in such a magical and unforgettable place.

Meet the folks who make it all happen. We see potential to make every moment one to remember, and care deeply about what we do every day. Our unique property inspires us to excellence at every aspect of our operation. Our team brings extensive experience in hospitality, a passion for delicious food and beverage, and the heart to make every day the best we can.

We’re four friends who have spent our careers in the Hospitality Industry and have long envisioned a property in the mountains to host fellow adventurers, a frequent topic of talks since we met almost twenty years ago.

In late 2021, we decided to take the leap at our dream and search for our next venture. We discovered this beautiful property and immediately fell in love. With quick access to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, Asheville and Greenville, and even Charlotte, we knew this was what we were dreaming of.

Since we became owners in April of 2022, we’ve grown our community of vacation rentals at Serenity Ridge to include Six Cabins, a Glamping Yurt + Luxury Bath, and the Hilltop House.

In April 2023, we completed construction on Serenity Ridge Wedding and Events Venue with a full Commercial Catering Kitchen overlooking views for days!

We’ve learned a lot along the way, but also depend on open communication with our couples to continue to learn and make us better. Please reach out to us directly with any comments, questions, or concerns. We’d love to meet you!
