Wedding & Events Availability Calendar:

  • Some brides plan ahead; some don’t. This calendar lists dates already claimed by others. IF we have an Elopement for Two that day, we can do a second of the same size. For weddings with quite a few guests we do one wedding per weekend AND all guest rooms are rented to wedding-related guests. We can do several elopements in one day. More than one small wedding in a day?  It depends on what the first bride to book schedules.

    On NASCAR event weekends (3rd weekend in April and in August), our Wedding Garden and reception room are almost always available but our guest rooms are almost always booked to fans who spend the day at the track—perfect time for a local wedding (one not requiring guest rooms).

    Dates to consider:   Many of our clients come from warmer regions and would never consider a summer wedding. Here in the High Country (Appalachian Mountains) we never have days over 90 derees and an infrequent late summer day with rain or high humidity. July 4th usually requires a jacket while watching the free fireworks from the inn’s front lawn!  Summer may be the perfect time for YOUR wedding in the mountains!
