    Stunning setting in Maggie Valley, NC

    Willow House & Social Barn was an absolutely perfect setting for our wedding weekend. It was beautiful, elegant, and serene, and our guests were comfortably accommodated in both the main house and the cabins on the property (not to mention the multiple Airbnbs and hotels in the area). The price tag cannot be beat for what Caroline and her husband provide during your weekend stay (all inclusive decor and use of the beautiful Willow House and grounds for two nights). We highly recommend this place for your moderately sized wedding events!

    Epic and Professional

    We could not have asked for a better venue. Mrs. Caroline is of oustanding character and dedication when it comes to her clients. Her and her husband made every effort to aid in us having a smooth sailing wedding day and rehersal dinner. Our guests had more than plenty of options when it came to lodging around the venue and in the vicinity of Maggie Valley, so we didnt have to worry about a thing, really. We enjoyed every moment of beauty and convenience that this wonderful place had to offer and would recomend it to anyone looking to have a beautiful and relaxing wedding.

    The Best Venue in Western North Carolina

    The Willow House and Social Barn was beyond what we could have imagined. We searched for forever and knew immediately it was the place. Caroline was wonderful at communicating with us throughout the whole experience, and went above and beyond to make all of our dreams come true. The venue is clean, beautiful, and full of everything you’d need to make your day perfect. Our day wouldn’t have been so flawless if it wasn’t at The Willow House. We will forever miss the weekend we had and never forget the memories we created there. I highly suggest booking them right away.
