About

Nestled in over 280 acres of mountains and secluded country side, The Zimmerwald Estate Barn and Grainery is home to a beautiful 3 story barn that is the perfect combination of both rustic and elegance. We are a family owned, and operated venue. Feel free to contact us with any of your event needs!

The History of the Zimmerwald Name and Barn:
The Zimmerwald Estate Barn & Grainery is owned by Craig and Lalisa Carpenter of Ellenboro, North Carolina. The Carpenter family ancestors migrated from Switzerland in the 1700s. While in Switzerland the family, then known as Zimmermans (later translated to Carpenter once in the United States), lived near a small town named Zimmerwald. It is known as one of the most beautiful places to visit in Switzerland. The word "Zimmerwald" means "The Keeper of the Trees". The Carpenter family property is a tree farm and a place that is beautiful to us. Thus the name Zimmerwald Estate was born.

The barn has been built from the ground up by Craig Carpenter, his brother Timmy Carpenter and other family and friends. Many of the trees use to build the barn were harvested from their property and were prepared at their saw mill on site. The idea for a wedding venue began was a dream of their daughter, now Zimmerwald's Estate manager Katie Carpenter White. What began as a simple dream and a sketch on a piece of notebook paper, has now become a reality. We are extremely excited to be a place where beautiful family memories can be made and couples can begin their happily ever after!

Storybook Dream Wedding Venue

This venue is so beautiful! Lalisa, the owner, and Katie, the wedding coordinator produced a seamless wedding ceremony and reception. This venue is worth every penny. I am so honored my fiance and I had our start at such a magical place. Thank you!

Picturesque country setting location with lots of options.

If you want a Hallmark wedding, this is the place to go! LaLisa and her family were the BEST! So friendly, professional, and helpful. Guests couldn't stop raving about the location. We were able to multiple areas for games, dancing, axe throwing, rocking on porches, smores, fire places, and so much more. Once you set eyes on this place you'll have to have it, and once you start working with the family, you'll be thrilled to have made the right decision. Can't recommend more!
