The perfect weekend
I had my wedding at the Retreat on June 8, 2019 and we are so happy we chose to get married at this gorgeous venue. We rented the Retreat from Friday to Sunday and were able to have our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony/ reception, and a farewell brunch on the grounds. Our whole wedding party and immediate family stayed in the lovely cabins on the grounds and it was so convenient to not have to drive! It rained for most of the weekend, and even though we were lucky enough to have a gap in the rain to have our dream ceremony outside, it took away so much stress to know we had the beautiful chapel as a plan B if the rain didn’t let up. The craft closet is a DIYers dream come true and we used many of the supplies in the closet to decorate for our various events. The grounds are so perfectly maintained, many of our guests said they wanted to come back to the Retreat just for weekend getaways. We also used several of the Retreats recommended vendors and had great success with them as well. Megan is an absolute pleasure to work with and was very helpful in the planning process. I would absolutely get married at the Retreat at Hiawassee River if I had to do it all over again, it was a perfect weekend!Sent on 09/11/2019

Our experience with the Retreat was incredible. Megan was incredibly helpful -- always quick to respond and offer help. We had a lot of independence and freedom for the weekend, and we and our guests loved staying in the cabins. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous, and all of the facilities are incredibly clean, beautiful, and functional. The barn chapel was perfect for our ceremony, and the clubhouse worked great as an assembly spot for the men getting ready. Cabin 11 served as a great "getting ready" spot for the women.Sent on 08/17/2019
Everything was perfect and I can't recommend the Retreat enough. It is an incredible value! We really got a lot for what we paid.
