Perfect retreat for our wedding week!

We had the most magical experience at The Poplars in May, 2022. We rented the houses and pavilion for a week and are so glad we did. Our family and guests were able to arrive early and enjoy beautiful Bearwallow Mountain- hiking on the nature conservancy trails and hanging out in the hot tubs. The houses were designed thoughtfully, with everything we needed for the week. The owner was responsive and helpful- making sure all of our needs were met throughout the week and for our rehearsal dinner. We had 75 person rehearsal dinner at the Poplars Pavilion and everyone loved the venue. The weather was beautiful- a spring fog settled between The Poplars and it was magic! The catering company, Celine and Company, had no problem accessing or setting up at the venue. My husband and I 10/10 recommend this venue. We are so thankful we had this quiet, gorgeous retreat during our wedding week! Thank you Poplars team!

Wedding Guest thoroughly Impressed

My friend hosted her wedding reception here, and it was absolutely stunning! Our family stayed overnight in one of the cabins, and it was clean, charming, and well-stocked. Alan and Annie (the hosts) made sure we were comfortable throughout our stay and had everything we needed. The grounds are gorgeous and it was so nice that we all had our own personal space in the cabin while still getting to stay together under one roof.

Most picturesque venue

We had our wedding at the Poplars at Bearwallow Mountain this past October and I don't believe there exists any other place more perfect than this, at least not for us. We had a destination wedding and wanted a place in which all of our family could stay for the weekend. It was a perfect Fall weekend.
Alan and Annie were very accommodating and helpful. We booked the place without even visiting. I was in the area a couple of weeks before the wedding and scheduled a walkthrough with Alan. He took the time to show me the property, gave us pointers and suggestions based on what others had done before and toured the houses. I provided the layout for our tables for the pavilion, our ceremony chairs as well as our timeline and it was all set up before we arrived. It was so nice to have the extra time to decorate and hang out with our friends and families.
