Reception Space

Inside the traditional barn with 30-foot gambrel roof, a refined and romantic space awaits. That scene begins when you open the large, wooden double doors to the expansive reception area. Guests are greeted with the glow of four dazzling chandeliers, the warm light bouncing off the North Carolina pine walls. Enjoy an enchanting dinner next to the floor-to-ceiling, wood-burning fireplace. Crafted of Tennessee field stone, the 34-foot-tall fireplace features a vintage 1800s wood mantle, reclaimed from the original home that once stood on the property.

Next, gather around for a slice of cake (or grandma’s famous pie) under whimsical string lights and get ready to raise the roof! The Pavilion is the perfect place, anytime of the year, to dance the night away with your favorite people.
