If you love the mountains and long to have a magical outdoor wedding with waterfalls, an orchard, and access to miles of hiking trails, Laughing Waters is for you!
Laughing Waters Retreat Center is a jewel that sits in the midst of 900 forever protected acres, on the banks of Hickory Nut Creek, 25 minutes southeast of Asheville, NC. It is in the heart of Hickory Nut Forest, an eco-community with green homes and sustainable living.
The lodge’s great room accommodates 75 people and has a large hearthstone wood stove and floor to ceiling windows facing the creek. A wrap-around deck looks out on a beautiful waterfall. The lower creek-side level has a cork floor ideal for dancing, yoga, or whatever. There are four guest bedrooms and four and a half baths.
The Honeymoon Cottage overlooks two cascading waterfalls that can be enjoyed from its back deck.
There are several unique outdoor sites for your ceremony – next to the creek, in the field by the pond, in the orchard, by the stone ruins of the old farmhouse, or whatever suits your fancy! Outdoor weddings can accommodate 90 people.
If you book Laughing Waters for your wedding, you can reserve the entire property for as many days as you choose.
