What a truly unbelievable spot and experience at The Cabin Ridge and with the owner Andy. We cannot express in words how over-the-top beautiful the venue is and the service from Andy was well beyond our expectations….even after we dropped a full rehearsal dinner on her the night before….our bad :/…but she rolled with it and made our day everything we had dreamed of. Thank you again Andy, and we will spread the word!! -Nate & Victoria – Fall 2017
The Cabin Ridge is gorgeous! All of our guests were in awe of the amazing views followed by a beautiful sunset during our reception. The pavilion was amazing and made having my dream of an outdoor wedding seem not so risky as it would provide shelter from any rain (which thankfully wasn’t even a factor). The venue itself is an ideal wedding location but Andy, the owner, truly made our wedding perfect! She made our lives so much easier when planning our wedding. She was so responsive throughout the planning process and had great suggestions which helped us out tremendously. She was the first person on site on the wedding day setting up chairs and helping out in every way possible and stayed throughout the night to ensure everything went smoothly. Having her there definitely made the day much less stressful. We highly recommend this venue, we could not have picked a more ideal spot for our big day! Ally & Tim, Fall 2017
I don’t have the words to express how much we appreciated Andy and The Cabin Ridge! We could not have picked a more beautiful location, and Andy (the owner) was beyond kind, helpful, and accommodating! She made sure we didn’t have anything to stress about, and truly went above and beyond to help make everything run smoothly. She felt like family by the end of the night. And our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the property, decor, and views were. Booking The Cabin Ridge was the easiest and best decision we made throughout the whole planning process, and we would recommend Andy 100 times over. Our day was perfect thanks to her and this beautiful property! Michelle & Adam – Summer 2017
I don’t know where to begin. The venue is beautiful. The grounds and pavilion are gorgeous. Andy is a dream to work with- kind, understanding, flexible, professional, reasonable, responsive. Guests raved about how unique, memorable, and special our wedding was. The view is great, but on our day is was foggy and the mountain view was completely blocked. Despite that, even in the fog, it was a beautiful mountain wedding and venue. Pretty no matter the weather, and if it happens to be rainy/foggy, Andy is prepared and it will all be taken care of! Also loved how you have the flexibility to bring in whoever and whatever you want to have a truly customized (budget and style-wise) wedding. Can’t say enough good things about it (: Rachel & Cory Spring 2017
Andy, the owner, was amazing to work with and so much fun! She went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly. I was also incredibly touched that she helped get our flowers and decorations out and set up. I’m so glad we chose the Cabin Ridge to get married! Maddie & Alex, Spring 2017
If you’re looking for an intimate, rustic and absolutely gorgeous wedding venue, The Cabin Ridge is right for you! Our guests are still talking about our wedding 2 months ago. It was the time of our lives and we would choose it all over again if we could 🙂 The venue owner, Andy, was such a pleasure to work with. Not once did we run into any issues while planning. She was helpful and responsive and answered any questions we had with sincerity. She also has a list of vendors on the venue website that I would highly recommend. 5 STARS!!! Candace & Jordan, Fall 2016
I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful wedding venue. It set the scene for a wonderful time with close friends and family, including many who traveled from out of state. Andy, the venue owner, worked hard to make sure any and every question that popped up in my head got addressed. Aside from the gorgeous mountain setting with all the right touches (landscaping, solar-roof pavilion, cabin, etc), having a problem-solving and gracious owner like Andy makes all the difference. The Cabin Ridge was the perfect setting for one of the happiest times of our lives. Thumbs up. Way up! Jane & Michael, Fall 2016
The Cabin Ridge was the absolute perfect wedding venue!! The are really no words to describe its beauty. Andy was fantastic and tremendously helpful in anything that she could do. Cannot recommend this venue enough!! Morgan & Alex Summer 2016
This venue offers anything and everything a busy bride deires to have a beautiful wedding. The venue itself was spectacular and the help that was provided throughout the planning process was A+. Our special day wouldn’t be complete without the hard work that the owner put in to make sure our day was just the best! Any detail needed was easy to find or ask in the planning process leading up to the big day. If your looking for that personal touch that every bride needs this is the place to be. Adrianne & Tom Summer 2016
If you’re looking for a peaceful, intimate, unbelievably gorgeous venue-you’ve found it in The Cabin Ridge. The new pavilion is perfect, the views stunning, and the kindness and professionalism and attention to detail provided by Andy is second to none. Without hesitation, we fully recommend this venue! Leigh & Carson, Spring 2016
We could not have picked a more beautiful location for our wedding. And Andrea (the owner of the venue) was just WONDERFUL to work with. She was always available and answered/returned emails and calls promptly. She was so helpful with suggestions on décor and with some miscellaneous things that we needed advice on. I highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to get married in the most beautiful setting in the mountains. Our wedding guests cant stop talking about it. Stephanie & Andrew, Spring 2016
I was blown away once I visited Cabin Ridge as an option for our May wedding. Andy was super helpful throughout the whole process and her little dog is an adorable sight on planning visits. The pavilion was great and it was what sold me on the location. We used vans to transport our party up the mountain, but you could use trolleys or school buses if you wanted. The barn worked great for cocktail hour. I was worried when I visited the month before our wedding that the foliage wouldn’t bloom in time to be as gorgeous as I knew it could be, but low and behold, the trees were full and the ivy was full by mid May. Caroline & Adam, Spring 2016
After searching all of WNC and Upstate SC for the perfect wedding venue that wouldn’t break the bank, we found The Cabin Ridge. Driving onto the property, we were immediately blown away by the gorgeous view and landscaping. And after meeting and talking with Andy, we knew immediately The Cabin Ridge was where we would say, “I Do.” Andy was very responsive throughout the entire wedding process, and she coordinated the tent, table and chair rentals for us. The venue even provides a nice selection of decor items for rent at reasonable prices. Our wedding day at The Cabin Ridge was absolutely perfect and the setting magical. Our guests couldn’t stop commenting on how beautiful the venue and the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains were, and our wedding photography was amazing thanks to the scenery! We couldn’t be happier that we chose The Cabin Ridge as our wedding venue, and we highly recommend this venue to everyone!
My son’s rehearsal dinner and wedding were both held at The Cabin Ridge. The setting was beautiful and included lovely sunsets, a rainbow after a rain shower and fireworks in the distance. Andy, the owner, anticipated every need and was quietly present, helping whenever needed. She helped navigate the rental deliveries and pick up and worked closely with the caterers to insure that all went smoothly. We held the rehearsal dinner in the barn, an intimate setting for a small group. It was perfect!
There truly are not enough words to express how amazing thing I have to say about the Cabin Ridge. The view is breathtaking and Andy is there every step of the way to help with anything that is needed. We could not have chosen a more wonderful location to have our wedding.
This is a gorgeous venue! Atop a hill with beautiful views. The owner if helpful and flexible. She has many lovely items that you can rent to facilitate a rustic themed wedding, saving you from having to buy or scout them out.
Oh what a beautiful wedding venue! Our wedding was absolutely spectacular at The Cabin Ridge and Andy was a delight to work with! The venue is gorgeous and could not have been more perfect! Our guests have not stopped talking about the view and how beautiful it was! Andy is amazing – she put our minds at ease every step of the way! She is so knowledgeable and always has a smile on her face. I would recommend The Cabin Ridge to anyone looking to get married in a relaxed, stunning setting! Thank you Andy and The Cabin Ridge for making our wedding day so special and memorable!
The Cabin Ridge is the best place to get married! My fiancee and I found it on a whim scouring through venues on Wedding Wire and fell in love with the pictures. I thought it may be too good too be true but the venue proved just as gorgeous in person as it was in pictures so we booked it on the spot. Andy was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process, and on the day of she was fantastic with helping out where she could but also staying out of the way so everyone could enjoy the fabulous property. I wish I could give more than 5 stars because this place was more than we could have asked for!
Oh my goodness – my husband and I are SO lucky to have found Andy and The Cabin Ridge. This was the final venue we toured after a whirlwind weekend of seeing 11 other options. We drove away from the tour already thinking it would be the perfect fit. And boy, was it! We lucked out on the weather, and I’m not sure what the guests enjoyed more – seeing us get married, or just the view! I’ve heard from our guests non-stop how much they enjoyed the location, view and general vibe of The Cabin Ridge. Andy was a pleasure to work with – always happy to answer questions, helpful and genuinely kind. Thank you, Andy! And, as far as value, OH MY GOSH. Can you even walk in any other venue for close to double or triple the cost of The Cabin Ridge? An amazing find, amazing value and beautiful setting for a wedding (and probably other occasions, too!). SO happy we tied the knot here. Just perfect.Wedding: 05/31/2015
Our wedding at The Cabin Ridge was a perfect day. The view over the mountains is breathtaking, particularly the sunset. Andy is incredibly helpful with all of the little details and she really helped make our day stress free and wonderful. I highly recommend The Cabin Ridge looking for a mountaintop wedding experience. It will not disappoint!Wedding: 05/02/2015
Cabin Ridge and the owner, Andy, exceeded all of my expectations. I cannot say enough good things about the venue and Andy. The setting is absolutely beautiful. It’s really nice to have the barn on the property as well as the cabin to get ready. Andy stays on site during the entire event, and she really goes above and beyond the call of duty in helping to set up, make the sure event runs smoothly, and break down. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience for my wedding.Wedding: 04/25/2015
Andy, the owner was amazing! Everything about this venue is magical and exactly what I hoped my wedding day to be! Thanks so much!!!Wedding: 08/30/2014
Hi! My name is Carlyne and my husband and I got engaged March of 2014 after dating for 2 years. We knew from the beginning of our relationship that we were going to get married. We had an exciting and challenging couple years of dating that definitely set the foundation for our relationship. After we got engaged we began looking for a venue. I grew up in the mountains so I HAD to get married in the mountains 🙂
I initially didn’t want to pay anything for a venue…I was set on just finding a waterfall somewhere and doing the ceremony. I quickly realized it would be extremely difficult. After looking through tons of venues they were all too fancy and/or expensive. My mom accidentally found Andy’s site online and she told me about it…after looking at the pictures I knew it was PERFECT. We were SO excited. So we contacted Andy to find out that she was booked ALL summer. We were looking to get married in july or august and she didn’t have anything available BUT she did us a huge favor and was able to find a date that would work for us (even though it meant a lot more work for her)
Andy is very practical, patient, and helpful! She was awesome. She showed up the day of my wedding before we got there to make sure everything went smoothly and she was willing to do anything to help out. My wedding day was everything I had ever wanted it to be and the property was just the right place for us 🙂Wedding: 06/29/2014
Dealing with everything that goes along with planning a wedding, choosing a venue had to be one of the easiest parts for us. Not only was the location absolutely stunning, but Andrea made everything so easy. The overall cost was clear and upfront (also a great value for all that you get), her help with everything was a breath a fresh air, and did I say the venue was stunning? 🙂 I am so happy we found The Cabin Ridge. I can’t imagine getting married any where more perfect!Wedding: 07/26/2014
The most beautiful & peaceful place. Everything was perfect from start to finish & Andy was amazing. She had answers for every question & was right there to help & work through every last minute problem with us. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better place for our wedding day.
Such an amazing venue with a beautiful view. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to get married! I planned to visit again as soon as I can.Andrea is also so helpful and has so much to offer with the venue. She is an amazing woman!
The Cabin Ridge was a perfect place for us to have our wedding! The views are beautiful along with arbors & flowers gardens creating the perfect setting. Andrea was available for any questions & was very helpful with everything. I love the old barn that is also on the property!
My daughter got married Sunday, May 25, 2014 at The Cabin Ridge. If your daughter or son is looking for a venue right out of a fairy tale, The Cabin Ridge is the place. It is nestled by itself on top of a mountain with a breathtaking view of the Smokie Mountains. There is a natural beauty to this place that just makes you want to stand in awe and soak it all in. Wildflowers, mountain laurel, blooming vines and various perennials adorn the property. The bridesmaids and my daughter got ready in a cute little cabin that sits at the edge of the property. A barn that fits in naturally with the surroundings and is decorated inside with a rustic charm provided the guests with a place for dancing the night away during the reception. The reception was held on the property under a beautiful tent that was rented through a local rental company (tent set up by rental company). The sunset at night was gorgeous. The different hues of red and yellow behind the Smokie Mountains was spectacular. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the owner, Andrea. I could not have gotten through the pre wedding plans and the day of the wedding without her help. She answered any question I had. She offered suggestions when asked but always ended the conversation with “it will be beautiful no matter what you decide”. The day of the wedding she was there from the beginning to the end offering to help us with whatever we needed from setting up to taking down but always keeping herself out and away from the limelight. She was gracious, kind and complimentary. Her main concern was that the day was whatever my daughter wanted it to be, and it certainly was. My daughter had not seen The Cabin Ridge prior to her wedding day, but I am happy to say that her response to me was “Mom, this place is more than I ever imagined”. That’s all I needed to hear!
My sister-in-law found this venue while searching for mountaintop venues online and I couldn’t be more thankful that she found it. The Cabin Ridge was the most beautiful venue site I have ever seen. Our ceremony overlooked the blue ridge mountains and they seemed to go on endlessly. All of our guests kept commenting on how beautiful everything was. The owner, Andy, was the nicest woman. I don’t know how many times we emailed or called her with questions and she always got back to us within 24hours. And she had an answer to everything. There are so many possibilities at this venue. You can use the barn which is adorned with rustic decorations and lights for your reception or you can just stay in a tent if you choose to rent one. Their are wildflowers every where which make for great photos. It even rained on my wedding and this was still the best venue because the sunset afterwards was amazing. She also has a cabin on the site that you can rent for the wedding night and it was absolutely romantic. I would recommend this venue to anyone. It was perfect.
This venue is fantastic! It doesn’t get any better than this. The owner is also amazing. She was so easy to work with and she did everything she could to make our day perfect. She helped us arrange for all of our event rentals and also has an extensive array of decorative items for use as well which made things easy to prepare. You won’t find a better venue or better people to work with than this.
We were excited, and a bit apprehensive, as we approached The Cabin Ridge. When you find something online you never know if the reality will compare to the glowing descriptions and select photographs you see when booking. We were very happy to find that The Cabin Ridge actually exceeded our expectations! This is a beautiful property. The grounds are large, open, and gorgeous. The cabin is larger than we expected, absolutely immaculate, and contained everything we needed. My 5 year old son had a wonderful time running and exploring, catching salamanders, picking tomatoes and apples, visiting with the cows next door, and learning the art of toasting the perfect marshmallow. Mommy and Daddy were happy to have the “camping experience” with a bathroom and four walls for sleeping. The fresh mountain air and the solitude and peacefulness of the setting were rejuvinating. We came home refreshed and relaxed. Thank you Andy for being a wonderful hostess – and thank you for sharing this treasure with us! We will be back! 5 out of 5!
This cabin was exactly what we were looking for! The Cabin Ridge exceeded all our expectations. Everything was perfect, including my fiance’s proposal in this memorable setting!
My wife and I just got married here today, and we could not have asked for a more perfect place! The Cabin Ridge is now a permanent heaven in our hearts, a place of great beauty and joy! We are pleased to add to and partake in its long history. Thank you! You made your home our home, and it made all the difference!
My husband and I got married at The Cabin Ridge. There is absolutely nothing that could have made this location more spectacular! Andy was exceptionally helpful to us from the very beginning. I loved her philosophy of wanting to share the beautiful space that her grandparents homesteaded on many years ago, and we loved even more that the area around it had been made into a conservation easement to protect rare species of salamanders and native flora and natural water resources.
Our friends and families could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was, and it would be impossible to measure how much the natural beauty of the venue contributed to the day’s feelings of fullness and love. The flowers were in full bloom, the land was carefully landscaped (but still maintained a wild and free feeling), and the mountains looked so stunning in the background. We got married in front of an arbor filled with flowers with the backdrop of the mountains, and then ate and danced the night away under a rented tent (60% chance of rain that never came to fruition, fortunately).
Andrea, the owner, was so helpful to us from the moment we first expressed interest in the venue until after the sunset on our wedding night when we were scrambling to clean and pack everything up. She was open and flexible enough to let us do everything exactly how we wanted, but thoughtful enough to make really good suggestions when we needed them. The whole day she was finding subtle ways to go an extra mile to be helpful, from setting up tables, to snapping a few pictures from afar, to washing dishes and hauling out trash. She was so kind and relaxed, and we were delighted to have our wedding at her venue. We could not be more grateful to her for all of her flexibility, help, and hard work for making our wedding such a special and meaningful occasion!
I am so glad we had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Cabin Ridge! I had so many compliments on my wedding and each started with “What an amazing place”. Andrea could not have been more accommodating! She really enjoys sharing the property and it is so very obvious that she takes great pride in maintaining the grounds and the cabin. She was very prompt at all communication. She was more than willing to let me visit on a couple of occasions to figure out my plans. Once we got there if something was forgotten she was there to pitch in and fix the problem in order for us to just carry on. Her attention to detail was everywhere and just something as simple as supplying the cabin chandelier with tea lights made our first night there so very beautiful. The entire cabin glowed of candle light which was fully visible even from the barn.
I was so inspired from the first time I drove up the winding path to the The Cabin Ridge. You are surrounded by forest on either side and suddenly the property opens up to a vast field of amazing views and you just feel in awe of nature. Once I found The Cabin Ridge it seemed the entire wedding could stem from the inspiration of the environment, and everything fell in place from there.
It could not have been a better fit for me and my husband as I truly think he was as excited about the location as I was. We were able to make it feel like our own private property. We had our closest friends camp on the grounds the night of the wedding while we stayed in the perfectly quaint cabin. If simple & rustic is as Andrea has made The Cabin Ridge, I think we could be content living back in time forever.
The Cabin Ridge was the perfect venue for us! Andy (the proprietor) is friendly, professional, courteous, flexible, and extremely helpful! The property is beautiful and clean, with great views and an all around amazing atmosphere.
We couldn’t have asked for a better location! We’re even thinking of renting the cabin and property again for a weekend on our first year anniversary.
We were so impressed. The venue itself is amazing and then you add a very personable and accommodating owner and you have the perfect spot for an outdoor wedding. We had guests with disabilities and the new wheelchair accessible bathroom was great. Beautiful views 360 degrees around made every view picturesque. We are so thankful we found this place.
We absolutely loved The Cabin Ridge! It is one of the most beautiful places in Western North Carolina. Andrea is a doll and is incredibly helpful and flexible to work with what you want. We couldn’t have had a more beautiful wedding with the The Cabin Ridge itself being aesthetically gorgeous without any extra touches. If you are planning an outdoor wedding in Western North Carolina definitely book it here! We can’t wait to go back up to visit, maybe just for a camp out! Thanks so much Andy!
The Cabin Ridge is an incredibly unique and wonderful wedding venue! We had numerous guests come up to us during the reception asking how in the world we found such an amazing place.
Andy was such a pleasure to work with. Willing to meet on last minute’s notice and extremely helpful when it came to offering advice or suggestions when asked. She also provides an amazing value for her property. We were able to have the rental company setup on Thursday, while we decorated on Friday and had the wedding Saturday. We cleaned up Sunday morning and the rental company came back on Monday to pack up. Most venues give you strict time limits on your rental hours (8-10 hours on Saturdays only). With as much DIY as we were planning to do, such strict time limits were just not an option.
The best part of the evening would have to be the sunset. It was something that couldn’t be planned. As the guests finished their dinner and the band started up, a magnificent sunset took place, lighting up the Blue Ridge Mountains. Everyone came out of the tent and watched in awe. We had no less than 20-30 people sharing photos of the sunset they took on their phones and cameras.
We cannot say enough good things about The Cabin Ridge. Go and visit for yourself and meet Andy – it speaks for itself.
The Cabin Ridge is quite a gem of a property, and Andrea was a pleasure to work with. We fell in love with the site while viewing its website. Since we were planning our wedding from another state, we had a great phone conversation with Andrea to talk through our questions. She addressed all of our questions, and we were comfortable enough to put down a deposit to secure our date without having even visited. Andrea was great to work with and straight-forward about all the details. The Cabin Ridge was the keystone to our entire wedding planning, and we can’t rave enough about how wonderful our day was because of the site!
My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary with the wedding that we didn’t get to have the first time. We chose The Cabin Ridge for several reasons: it was close to home, it was very affordable and the family atmosphere was very important. From the very beginning, the venue owner-Andrea, felt like family. She was very accommodating and wanted to make sure that we had everything that we needed. She went out of her way to get a discount on a tent, tables and chairs rental for us. She made herself available anytime I had another question. Our wedding was beautiful and everyone loved the venue. I am sure that I would not have been happier anywhere else!
