About Sugar Hollow Retreat

Every Dream Wedding Begins With a Dream Destination

Placed snugly within the majestic mountains of Northeastern Tennessee - is the Sugar Hollow Retreat. The Appalachians’ most prized possession! This hidden gem offers 300 acres of the most serene wildlife and serves as a breathtaking backdrop for your special occasion. (Definitely worthy of a desktop wallpaper.)

Sugar Hollow Retreat provides several ‘sweet spots’ for your DREAM WEDDING:

Overlook Deck - Ideal for small, intimate weddings, the Overlook Deck provides space for you and up to 125 of your guests. Nothing says ‘dream wedding’ like reciting your vows over the sparkling waters of Watauga Lake.

Outdoor Amphitheater (Whitetail Stage) - Whether you prefer a quiet place for your special morning or a thrilling ceremony with all the bells and whistles, the amphitheater provides a prime location. It seats up to 250 of your family and friends and is fully equipped with wiring for any lighting and/or PA system.

Watauga Conference Center - For a cozy ceremony, the Conference Center makes for an excellent location - offering ten tables and seating up to a 100 people. The fully heated and air-conditioned facility provides you with everything you need for a simple, genuine wedding.

‘The Meadow’ - Just a slice of God’s green Earth! Sugar Hollow’s endless green pastures surrounding the lodge make for a perfect nature-infused wedding. (Wildflowers make for beautiful decorative pieces.)

We had a fantastic weekend with Sugar Hollow. They were so accommodating but also flexible. Our guests had a great time, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to Sugar Hollow for their next retreat of any kind, whether wedding, family reunion, or anything else!

The venue is incredibly beautiful and versatile for whatever style wedding you'd like to have! Marty has been extremely helpful every step of the way. I was in my best friend's wedding at Sugar Hollow and my fiance and I decided it was the perfect fit for us as well! I highly recommend using this venue and their wonderful staff.
