at our Blue Ridge Parkway Wedding Venue

Over 20 years, couples have exchanged vows and celebrated their wedding anniversaries at our Blue Ridge Parkway Wedding Venue. We invite you to elope as a couple for an intimate escape; bring a few friends to witness your vows; or have a party with your closest friends and family. We have up to 10 guest rooms available in the Lodge for your private party. Your guest may also spill over into the Luhn House for an additional 10 people staying overnight on the property. Our team handles the details to make your elopement or small wedding simple, fun, affordable, romantic and memorable. We’ll do the work, while you enjoy your special day!

The Venue

The extensively landscaped grounds create a stunning backdrop for your special day. From the back decks, a winding trail takes you past native perennials, trees, and shrubs down to the creek and the fire circle. Your vow ceremony can take place at the bridge, under one of our arbors, on the garden porch, or inside in front of a roaring fire. View additional images of our venue on our Inn Tour & Amenity page.

We loved every minute of our stay at bent creek lodge. This was our 6th year visiting Bent Creek Lodge. It is so amazing we decided to get married in the beautiful gardens at the inn… We love the delicious breakfasts and the back porch swing is a favorite afternoon relaxation spot. The inn is only about 15 minutes from Asheville and in a perfect location to access hiking and biking trails… We can’t wait to return.
