Wedding Accommodations

Not many wedding venues in Western North Carolina give you exclusive use of the property for a full two nights. When you choose Orchard Inn, the entire property, including nine rooms, five cottages, two luxury suites, and all the common areas, is yours. We offer luxurious accommodations for your wedding party and guests. We find that this provides a relaxed setting for those staying to become better acquainted.

Wake each morning surrounded by the stunning allure of Western North Carolina and watch as the sun rises from your charming cottage. Join us for breakfast each morning in Newman’s while smelling the splendid aromas of freshly baked goodies filling the air. You may also step out to our inn’s backyard to soak up the beauty of our garden, admire the mountainside flora, and even go birdwatching. Whatever way you decide to spend your two days with us, you’re sure to have a marvelous experience!

Honeymoon at The Orchard Inn

The guest accommodations are taken care of, and so is your honeymoon. Choose from a private cottage, romantic suite, or elegant room for your first nights together as a married couple. Wake up each morning with your new spouse to gorgeous views of the mountains!

We recommend indulging in our Honeymoon Package. Relax in the Holly Cottage before joining us for dinner at our fine dining restaurant, Newman’s. Then, share a bottle of celebratory champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries as you take in the picturesque view from your private cottage.

Joel and I both wanted to tell you how much we appreciate the pictures of all of the guests as individuals or couples. There were a lot of aspects of the wedding day that we each missed, being separated, and it was lovely going through the photos and telling each other the stories about our day before the ceremony. I personally am so excited to have multiple pictures of my dad actually smiling I don’t know what to say! You did a wonderful job; our families have asked me multiple times how you managed to be in so many places at once and capture all of these moments 😉 Thank you so very much!”
