    The perfect place and best bang for your buck for sure

    We looked at 15 venues before choosing the retreat for our wedding. It was everything we needed and wanted in one spot. The property it beautiful and so well maintained, the chapel and reception hall is beautiful and awesome. Megan and the entire staff was so much help, thru the entire process! If you have a small wedding (around 50 to 60 guest) everyone can stay on the property or if it was bigger wedding, then the immediate family and wedding party can stay on property! So peaceful and perfect place

    A Natural Beauty

    We are so incredibly happy to have found The Retreat at Hiawassee. It was truly the perfect wedding venue for us. We visited a couple of beautiful wedding venues in the area, but ultimately chose The Retreat for its unparalleled natural beauty, freedom to choose our own vendors, ability to house family and friends onsite and the customer service. Megan was so great to work with from our very first tour, to many trips in between and the big day.

    The venue’s beauty speaks for itself and we were fortunate enough to have incredible weather at the end of July – no rain and not too hot. The pavilion does not have A/C as of today, but this ended up not being a problem for us which I was surprised by. The outdoor ceremony site is so serene and gorgeous, but there is also the barn/chapel for a backup location or to host other events. This is where we held our rehearsal dinner.

    A few added bonuses we really appreciated were an unlimited supply of ice onsite, chairs/tables/linens provided, and all the décor you could need. I did most of our decorating myself, but there is honestly plenty of stuff there you can borrow. We received so many compliments on our venue and our guests enjoyed hanging out and getting to float the river. I may be biased, but it was a wedding weekend unlike any other. Can’t wait to return again one day for a reunion one day!
