An elegant, intimate setting for your ideal mountaintop wedding or party is not far away. Imagine your sweetheart, your friends and your family in a spacious living room with mountains as the backdrop when you say “I Do!” It’s the biggest day of your life thus far, and what more reason is there to celebrate?
Toast champagne by the grand fireplace or under the arbor on a picturesque back deck. Sound enticing? This is what you’ll experience at the Orchard Inn, the best of Asheville wedding venues. We are the only venue that combines stunning natural sights with the comforts of an intimate bed and breakfast setting. We thought we’d share a review we found on bedandbreakfast.com from someone who had his dream wedding at the Orchard Inn. We always love it when people share their experience with us!
A Great Place for Events Big and Small!

May before last my wife and I were married at The Orchard Inn. It was not long into our initial visit at the Orchard Inn that we were quite sure that it was the “right place”. From a financial… Read more… perspective we felt it was a good deal compared to other places that had a lot of “add on” charges. In terms of the Orchard Inn’s capacity and unique characteristics it fit the bill rather nicely. We wanted a small, intimate setting that was special and would set the right mood for our celebration. It had to be special — kind of classy, but not uptight and pretentious. The Orchard Inn is very nice, but not overly formal or “stuffy”. Part of the appeal of the place are its owners Marc and Marianne — two lovely people who you can tell really care about their property, their work, and meeting guests’ needs. They had us come up one afternoon for a wine tasting and time during which we could plan a menu and schedule. It was all very enjoyable and we didn’t feel like we were conducting business. Another strong point (if you should choose the Orchard for a wedding) is the deck and its incredible mountain range view. The reception and dinner were fabulous (you must order the freshly caught mountain trout). Marianne, is a five star chef! Marc is quite a photographer, should you need those services. We stayed in one of the cottages (the term is not quite apt for so nice a space). It has a big Jacuzzi tub, small living room area with fireplace, private screened in porch overlooking the mountains, and a very comfortable bedroom appointed very tastefully. If you’re looking for a romantic space you’ll find no better. Our wedding guests were all very impressed and said the Orchard Inn sort of framed who we are in terms of our taste, style, and attitude toward life. They liked their rooms (in the inn) and cottages. Many expressed an interest in returning for vacations. My wife and I returned this past May for our first anniversary and hope to do every year.
