Beautiful & perfect
We had our wedding here a few weeks ago and it was absolutely wonderful. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and the cabins on site are a wonderful added bonus. Megan was very responsive and friendly, answering all of our questions leading up to the event. Even when the venue flooded 2 days before our event, the owners and staff put in double time to get everything looking beautiful by our big day. It was not even noticeable that anything catastrophic had happened by the day of our wedding. The staff is very personable, flexible and accommodating to your needs. Highly recommend this venue!!Sent on 11/12/2020

Best venue and best wedding!
The Retreat at Hiawassee River is the best venue for many reasons! Not only is it the most beautiful with the scenery of the river and north GA mountains, but it is the most accommodating with the staff being so helpful and flexible. They did everything possible to work with us and make sure we had everything we wanted for our special day. It is also a major plus that there are numerous cabins on site that the wedding party, family, and friends can stay in for the wedding; literally just being able to walk home to your cabin after a night of fun at the wedding was great! We were able to have both the reception and wedding at the venue and stay in the cabins to make it a full weekend vacation with a wedding at the end! The Retreat has everything you need for the perfect wedding- beautiful scenery, very affordable, nice and helpful staff, accommodations on site, a choice of outdoor or indoor ceremony options if needed, a full selection of decorations, chairs, and tables provided, and so much more! Choosing this venue for my wedding really helped make it the best day ever!Sent on 01/25/2021

Such a wonderful venue for a wedding!
The wedding venue as well as the cabins on the property made this the perfect venue. We originally planned an outdoor wedding but due to rain had to move it inside to the barn. Having both options was one of the main reasons we chose this venue. The building where we had our reception dinner had plenty of room with many decorations on site that we were able to use. The game room was perfect for the groom and his groomsmen before the wedding and later a kids room while the grownups were at the reception. All of the staff were excellent!Sent on 02/18/2020
