    Our Mountain Fairytale Wedding

    On October 12th, we had our dream wedding at the most beautiful wedding venue in the high country. It still feels like a fairytale ... The raw beauty of the Blueridge Mountains coupled with the crystal chandeliers of the Sky Retreat's ballroom is simply unparallel. From the moment we booked the venue until the very end of our wedding we were so well-taken care of! The Sky Retreat team's professionalism, prompt communication and reliability are everything you could ever want in a wedding venue. We couldn't be happier we chose the Sky Retreat!

    Most Beautiful Venue in the High Country

    My daughter was married at Sky Retreat on 10/5. I cannot say enough about this venue. It is absolutely beautiful inside and out. From the gorgeous, huge chandeliers in the spacious ballroom to the large veranda with a wrap around porch, truly the view is second to none. There are cabins on the property that are held so they can be rented for your wedding weekend, as we did. This was so helpful for our out-of-state guests and us for being there early for setting up. The kids loved the stocked pond and large swings. When low clouds sat on the mountain the day of the wedding, Vito jumped in and set the chairs up on the veranda and then quickly changed it over for the cocktail hour when the ceremony was finished. He was so easy to work with and was there to make sure everything went smoothly, and it did. There is no way to go wrong with this venue. The view from the ballroom is breathtaking. Schedule a visit. You will fall in love and your pictures will be amazing.
