Why Choose Overlook Barn for Your Wedding?

Overlook Barn isn’t just a venue; it’s a destination where dreams come to life against the stunning backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With options for an indoor reception in the main hall (4,500 sq ft) adorned with string lights and 30-ft ceilings or an outdoor celebration in Mary’s Meadow or the newly added Pavilion, your wedding photos will capture the essence of the Carolinas. Whether it’s a seated dinner for up to 250 guests, a cocktail reception for 300, or an intimate ceremony in the Cliffside Barn, each setting offers unique opportunities to create unforgettable memories.
