Facilities and Capacity

At Sky Retreat, you can host an intimate gathering or share your big day with up to 200 guests. Before the celebration, there is an on-site get-ready suite for you and your wedding party to prepare in. For your reception, you and your loved ones can dance the night away in the bright Grand Event Hall. The space features a wall of windows overlooking the long-range mountain view, a 40-foot-by-60-foot dance floor, a DJ area, and a catering kitchen. While showcasing nature, it also combines the elegant touch of high-vaulted ceilings and large crystal chandeliers. For an open-air cocktail hour, the expansive veranda and its grand fireplace can be used. Adjacent to the veranda is a scenic procession through the waterfall garden to the ceremony paver pad or grass lawn. Here, you can further enjoy the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains under the open sky. You are welcome to exchange vows outside in the Ceremony Green with the sweeping landscape behind you as you say “I do.”

Sky Retreat tables and chairs are included in the rental fee for bookings made at this time, as well as their one time set up and take down. The venue is also pet-friendly, so you can bring along your four-legged friends to celebrate your special occasion. During your wedding stay, you and your guests can participate in a variety of on-site activities such as hiking to the beautiful local waterfall, tubing/kayaking down the river, visiting the onsite petting farm, enjoying an onsite massage or private group yoga class, stargazing in this dark sky zone, roasting s'mores by a bonfire, and more.

The Fairytale Wedding Venue

I absolutely loved having our wedding at Sky Retreat! They are amazing and go above and beyond. It is a GORGEOUS Venue with STUNNING views!
They have the sweetest little petting zoo my kids loved. As well as the most wonderful staff!
Our first dance was sadly not captured by out video camera. BUT Sky Retreat SAVED THE DAY by sending us their ballroom's video that happened to capture our very special choreographed First dance!!!!
They were so friendly, answered all of our questions, and communicated with us any time we reached out to them.
We plan to go back every year for our anniversary and stay at their cabins. Hoping to enjoy all the other things they offer and that are offered in the area!
Thank you so much for everything!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful Views

The sky retreat was the perfect place for us to have our big day. From having cabins on site for the family and bridal party to stay on, to Meris, Vito and Dalton's exceptional service throughout our planning/day of experience we could not have asked for a better venue. Our wedding fit 150 guests very comfortably in the ballroom and the fireplace and smores were a big hit at the reception. Thank you for providing us with such a memorable day.

Absolutely phenomenal!

Everyone we worked with at Sky Retreat for our wedding was amazing! They were so incredibly helpful every step of the way. All of them went out of their way to help us and make sure our wedding was exactly how we wanted it to be. They are truly some of the kindest people I've ever met and I can't recommend them enough!
