My husband and I just celebrated our one year anniversary – my how time has flown! We love thinking back on our wedding day that we spent at this beautiful mountain home, so it’s only fitting that I FINALLY write our review. We had a vision of having a casual, laid-back wedding that everyone could enjoy. We found the home online, spoke with Nancy, and booked the home without hesitation. From that moment, the process of working with Nancy (owner) and Vicky (wedding coordinator) was seamless. We had a few special requests that they gladly accommodated, going above and beyond what we would have ever expected. Prior to the wedding weekend, Vicky offered to meet us at the home for a tour. She had also arranged for a local event rental company (tables, chairs, tents, dance floor, heaters, etc.) to meet us and discuss our needs and the layout. As day-of wedding coordinator, Vicky helped with the ceremony, helped with odds and ends throughout the day, and kept an eye out for food/drinks that needed to be refreshed throughout the night. There is a relatively small fee for Vicky, but it was more than worth it to us. The home was large enough to accommodate the bride’s family and our dog (pet fee) for the weekend, and there were other accommodations in the area for the groom’s family and our wedding guests. The suite in the basement area was used for the groom and his groomsman to get ready during the day, and doubled as the honeymoon suite after the wedding festivities. The home is decorated with antique and vintage touches, and very well appointed. We were married on the side-porch to get the most out of the beautiful mountain view and have room for our 75 guests to be comfortable. Our reception was under the trees in the front yard, and it was absolutely perfect. Our wedding was at 4 with dinner and the reception following after. If I recall correctly, we were given a heads-up to start wrapping up by 10 pm, which we felt was more than enough time to celebrate!

This was an amazing place to have our wedding! We loved getting to stay for days at the place and decorate everything ourselves. The house has tons of room, and the outdoor space is so beautiful. Waking up and drinking coffee on the beautiful porch was such a great way to start the day. The wedding went perfect and we were lucky to have the best weather for the day. I think the only negative would be the driveway, It was worse then the time we visited the property because I think it had rained and car tires dug holes a bit but we had trouble getting small cars through it, and the bus we rented to shuttle our guests there wouldn't even try the driveway so if you're holding a wedding here I think the only real option is people driving themselves. Maybe one day theyll pave the driveway that would definitely be a great improvement.
Loved that we picked this spot for our special day and we will absolutely be back for an anniversary one day!
One other thing that I think would be helpful is installing a wifi router, we didn't get any cell signal at all up there and without wifi it made keeping in touch with vendors sort of difficult.
