Owners Patrick and Lisa Ellis are happy to welcome you to this beautiful property for the next chapter of your wedding story.

Facilities and Capacity

This country estate is situated amid 16 lush acres in western North Carolina. The combination of a modern farmhouse, verdant land, and a tranquil pond make this an excellent locale for a country wedding celebration. This pond is home to ducks and geese, while laurels and rhododendrons grow abundantly nearby. You can get ready before your ceremony in comfortable rooms with vintage touches. With many scenic ceremony sites, this flexible venue can accommodate varied wedding sizes, from intimate gatherings to larger groups of up to 150 guests. Outdoors guests can enjoy the slate patio complete with rocking chairs and a fire pit. The estate is wheelchair-accessible and offers on-site parking with the option of a shuttle.

Services Offered

Patrick and Lisa Ellis and their team offer all-inclusive wedding packages to make wedding planning stress-free. They are happy to customize these packages to suit your style and requirements. This friendly team can recommend vendors who have excelled at weddings at the venue for event design, officiants, photography, videography, floristry, and live entertainment. You can have a champagne toast in vintage-style glasses to kick off your reception, with a wide variety of dining options available for you and your guests.

History

The Ellis family has managed the Pond ever since Patrick’s father, Dr. George Ellis, built it in 1972 to provide water for pasture and horses. Patrick and Lisa Ellis had their farmhouse built by the Pond in 2010. In July 2019, they made the property available for other couples to enjoy their special celebrations.
