    We had our rehearsal dinner, lodging, and wedding reception at Unicoi. Stephanie and the event staff were so supportive and helped us sort through the finer details of planning from day one. We had limited venue options since we had a large guest count (250), but Unicoi was our first pick--Absolutely breathtaking views and accommodations. The food was amazing and catered to the different palettes, and all of our out-of-town guests were pleased with their accommodations. All of our guests were very entertained with the activities offered at the lodge. We had the best event of our lives all thanks to Unicoi! We look forward to our next visit there :)

    Great place. The mountains are beautiful. The venue is beautiful, no one can even tell it's a state park. We had our wedding inside the ballroom and took our pictures outside for the most part. The mountains in the back were gorgeous. They really work with you on timing and dating. If you have an event they make sure no other event is conflicting. The food as absolutely amazing. My people are still talking about it 8 months later lol. A lot of bang for your buck. A little disadvantage is that you have to make sure you stay on them about keeping wanderers away from your event. It is a public state park but random people were looking in and staring at us at our wedding rehearsal. Really creepy. They're a little hesitant to redirect people because it's public but they will.

    Unicoi State Park and Lodge was our rehearsal dinner venue, wedding & reception venue, and caterer. They provided tables, chairs, and linens and did all of the set-up and take-down. They were amazingly flexible with regards to layout, timing, menu, and bar services. The people were friendly, helpful, and extremely pleasant to work with. The chef was super friendly and even managed to salvage my toppled-over wedding cake without me knowing about it until later. Sarah and Jamie were the people who worked with me regarding set-up and decorations, and they were so great. They even set up Christmas trees by the fireplace the morning of the wedding.

    The food was AMAZING, especially for the price we paid (we did choose your own lunch buffet). They let us specify things that were listed as "chef's choice" and even let us have breakfast for dinner at the rehearsal dinner. It was all delicious and people were really happy with the food. People were also very happy with the bartender at our reception (Maureen) because she was so friendly and pleasant and kept joking around with everyone.

    The venue itself was gorgeous. The Masters Hall has high ceilings, large chandeliers, and a fireplace at one end where we said our vows. The lobby downstairs was full of Christmas trees for the Festival of Trees, and it was just generally a gorgeous place. Many of our guests stayed in rooms at the Lodge, and we were able to use the common area in Lodge A to hang out and visit with each other. It was overall a great experience, and I wouldn't change a single thing.
