    Words cannot begin to express how much we loved having our wedding weekend at the Barn at Valhalla. Since most of our guests were from out of town we loved being able to rent the venue for the whole weekend so that everyone could stay there and enjoy themselves. Not only is the venue beautiful, but it includes everything you could possibly need including tables/chair, large industrial fridges, audio hook-ups and plenty of photo-ops. The new chandeliers and hearth deck were stunning. My bridesmaids also couldn't stop raving about how comfy the beds were and one of them immediately went home and ordered the same mattress topper for her bed!

    I can't say enough great things about The Barn at Valhalla! The owner and manager both truly care for their clients and help to make their events unforgettable! It's not often that you have vendors like these that go the extra mile. It's a gorgeous gem of a venue located close to Chapel Hill, but far enough away for you to feel as if you're on a rustic retreat or vacation! One of their biggest advantages is the rustic yet luxurious beauty of the onsite accommodations. It provides an amazing "at home" feeling for clients since they can stay the entire weekend! Truly my #1 recommendation to clients in search of a special venue.
