Laughing Waters is an exquisite jewel sitting in the midst of 900 protected acres on the banks of boulder-strewn Hickory Nut Creek, and just 25 minutes southeast of Asheville, NC.
Laughing Waters Lodge has a great room that accommodates 100 people, with a hearthstone wood stove and huge windows facing the creek. A large back deck overlooks the beautiful waterfall. The lower level has a cork floor ideal for yoga and dancing. 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. When you book Laughing Waters, you have the option of reserving the whole property for the whole weekend!
Miles of trails follow the stream to many beautiful waterfalls and up to rocky cliffs. There is an abundance of sites for your ceremony – inside the spacious and light-filled great room, on the back deck, in the orchard, by the old stone chimney ruins, in the meadow by the pond, or whatever suits your fancy. If you want a romantic, magnificent mountain experience for your wedding and love the sight and sound of a rushing stream with amazing waterfalls, Laughing Waters is the perfect venue for you!
