Located on the very top of Bent Mountain and overlooking Roanoke, Virginia, Silver Hearth Lodge (SHL) is the ONLY private mountain top wedding venue in the entire southeast. The private and gated venue has been hosting ONLY weddings/receptions since 2010 (April - November), and it is known for its "refined rustic" amenities, ease of setup/takedown, cost-conscious pricing, and most of all for its endless mountain top views of pure nature. The wedding campus features a BIG red "barn-inspired" reception hall (with its own Starbucks featured coffee bar), an elegant bridal suite and grooms cabin, Virginia's smallest church, a Native American fire circle, on-site parking, and 2 kennel cabins to accommodate your 4 legged family members. Just in case Mother Nature comes a knocking during your wedding ceremony, SHL has a flawless rain plan..."we leave nothing to chance on your BIG DAY." At night time, guests have described the venue as magical..." an adult Disney World for weddings." SHL has earned a solid reputation by exceeding the expectations of couples from all over the world, and there are lots of reviews on social media to prove that SHL WILL make your wedding dreams come true!

    We didn’t have a wedding but the experience deserves a review

    Upon arriving at Silver Hearth we were admittedly nervous due to the apprehension we had experienced previously with other vendors/venues. We are a safe sex couple in Virginia; it can be rough. None the less we were met with a warm embrace, literally. We were offered a blanket and a seat to have a wholesome conversation about our lives as well as to learn about Bob and his home/venue. It was immediately the best experience we have had to date. We were sold, though Bob isn’t attempting to sell you anything. This is YOUR day and YOUR wedding. This was made clear from the beginning. One thing he said has stuck with me and I tell people regularly, “if you want to get married on my roof I’ll make it happen.” So many other venue owners want to make it about them and their venue. I witnessed this recently when I attended a friends wedding. The owner would not allow her to use her own arch way, she had to walk the way the owner wanted her to due to it being “traditional” and “traditional” is how you marry. The owner went as far as unplugging the brides phone from her own speaker to stop the music. It really set things in stone for me; Bob is truly a gem in the wedding world and I’m general. It breaks my heart that we are not able to have our wedding at Silver Hearth (this is due to our financial situation). Thank you so much, Bob. We adore you and wish you and your venue the best. Keep giving hugs and granting brides/grooms/and anyone in between the best day of their lives. They will find it on the top of Bent Mountain.

    Silver Hearth Lodge is a DREAM!

    SHL and team were so incredible to work with!! The venue is absolutely breathtaking and unique in so many ways. From the beautiful mountain overlook, to the stunning Iron Dome ceremony area, this venue truly could not be more gorgeous. Another incredible perk of SHL is the Vista View Hall is how it is already tastefully decorated! We were able to save some money from our "decor" budget because there was little besides centerpieces we felt we needed to make the space beautiful - it already is! In addition to the STUNNING venue - Bob and Ashley are incredible to work with! Bob has truly thought through every single detail that a couple could need when it comes to planning. His extensive planning guide is so helpful to ensure that everything is thought out. I have bragged about SHL since I laid my eyes on it for the first time, and will continue to do so! I would HIGHLY recommend SHL to anyone looking for their dream wedding venue!
