Every penny spent towards booking the Barn at Valhalla was money well spent.Sent on 02/26/2018
Initially, we were concerned about the higher cost of booking the Barn for the weekend. However, the flexibility the Barn gives you in bringing in your own vendors gives you the opportunity to stay within your budget if you are on a tighter budget.

Our family's experience at Valhalla was outstanding!
Our family's experience at Valhalla was outstanding! From the time of our first tour to checking out the day after the wedding, we were shown incredible cooperation and patience. Any question you had was answered quickly and you never felt as though the question was silly.
Marguerite and her family offered suggestions when we had doubts about set-ups or anything else. Definitely, professionalism with the heart to see that my daughter's wedding was going to be as she wanted it. It felt like her wedding mattered and that they were family too, pulling along with us to make sure all went well.
For those that were there all three days, it offered a time for two families to bond and old friends to rekindle memories. All our guests were impressed by the beauty of the venue and the peaceful atmosphere it radiated.
The back drop of nature made every bridesmaid walking toward the outside stone fireplace beautiful and made my daughter, the bride, glow among the fall leafs as she said her vows.
Valhalla is not a venue, but an experience you and your guests will remember for a lifetime!
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.
