About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$2k - $3k For 100 Guests

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!

    Anthony Wedding

    Zimmerwald is the absolute best!! LaLisa was so helpful with any questions we had, and Katie, her daughter, was the best and most professional wedding director. The venue is already decorated, and Katie even used lanterns from her own home to help bring my vision for our ceremony area to life. Wen you book with LaLisa, you get to use the property for engagement pictures, bridals, rehearsal dinner, and of course the wedding! They also give you an extra days worth of time to clean up after the ceremony, which gave our families an opportunity to go home and rest then come back and clean after our wedding! 10/10 would recommend Zimmerwald because the venue itself is beautiful and the owners truly care about their customers!

    Zimmerwald Estate Barn & Grainery's reply:

    Ashlea,
    What wonderful compliments! We truly enjoyed helping bringing your wedding day vision to life. Thank you for choosing us as your venue. We wish you and Austin a lifetime of happiness and love!
