    Perfect Setting for Perfect Memories

    Our son and now daughter-law asked us to host the rehearsal dinner for their destination wedding. Though there are many places to consider in the Pigeon Forge, TN area what first got out attention was the ambience--an old rustic farm building renewed into a surreal setting. Nestled on a hillside, from the moment you arrive there is that feeling that something special is about to happen. And, you will not be disappointed. The staff went out of their way to help us plan the best way to utilize the space. The decor, including use of the original wood beams, makes for a wonderful intimate setting. Many of our guests upon entering the room simply said, "Wow! What a great place." The tables were set up to our specifications. When it came time to eat the staff were very eager to serve, polite in their questions, and obviously committed to our welfare. The food was outstanding. We had two entrees available to our guests. Both the mandarin orange chicken and the cinnamon apple pork were described by many, "as the best that they ever had eaten". The re-stuffed baked potatoes rivaled those found in some of the best steakhouses. Even after the wedding the next day many guests were still commenting on the food including some who ran a prominent restaurant in Georgia. The strawberry shortcake dessert pleased many a palate. If one views the rehearsal dinner as an opportunity to thank people who have had an impact upon the bridal couple as well as a fun retreat from the stressors of the wedding, there is no place better. They are helpful, professional and desirous of delivering the best experience possible. I doubt if those who first built the barn ever imagined that it would become such an outstanding venue that would create lasting memories.
