💗 Sacred mountain sanctuary 💗
I cannot begin to imagine a more wonderful wedding weekend. This past weekend blew away anything I ever could have dreamt all thanks to Kaleigh Hackfeld, the property’s wedding planner. My husband and I both have full time jobs that require a good deal of our attention and a 3 year old son, therefore we wanted something fun but struggled finding the time to plan. Thank the heavens for Kaleigh and the team at Sugar Hollow. I trusted her and she delivered like I never could have imagined.Sent on 06/27/2019
The decorations, the setting, the timeline...she heard every request and made it a priority. I was relaxed and beyond thrilled all weekend and all of our guests raved about the venue and how special it was. It was so beautiful and Sugar Hollow made it look easy and effortless. We are so grateful for the best weekend of our lives and look forward to reliving it over and over on video.

AMAZING! The scenery is a dream in itself and the wedding planner is equally a dream.
Not only is the venue STUNNING, but the wedding planner Kaleigh is amazing. She made my dreams for a wedding come true. She is so full of joy and not only does she just plan a wedding but she invests in her work and truly cares. The atmosphere of Sugar Hollow Retreat is one I could be apart of forever. It truly is breathtaking. Thanks Sugar Hollow!Sent on 07/07/2019

I love sugar hollow!
If i could spend every day at Sugar Hollow Retreat I would.Sent on 01/06/2019
I've been as a wedding guest and a bride, and it is an amazing venue with a multitude of locations for ceremony, reception, and even rehearsal dinners. We had our rehearsal dinner at the amphitheater with a band, the ceremony at the overlook, and the reception at the lodge. Most of our guests were able to stay on site at the various camping sites or in the cabins/lodge.
The views are stunning and the rustic decor was exactly what we were looking for in an weekend wedding retreat with all our family and friends. The venue is very private set in an amazing mountain setting with a view of the lake. Marty is amazing at helping during the wedding planing process and is superb at taking care of the property.
We love Sugar Hollow and hope to spend more weekend anniversaries there in the future.
