Wedding Details

Thanks for considering us for your upcoming wedding! We offer a weekend wedding retreat that includes all our amenities from 2 pm on Friday until 5 pm on Sunday…a nice relaxed 51 hour lease to enjoy time with family and friends in a serene setting at the confluence of the four tributaries of the Queens Creek in the Mills River community, just south of Asheville. The all-inclusive arrangement includes both of our cabins, the chapel, the pavilion (open air, covered, and 2816 square feet), our two lakes for swimming and boating, and camping for family and friends.

The Retreat cabin, dating back to 1850’s and relocated to the property in 1954, offers a loft with a King bed, and a bedroom with a Full bed, a nice sized kitchen, and a great wrap around covered porch. Linens are included. This is a great focal point for the bride and groom to greet guests, and to enjoy coffee the morning after with those who have stayed the night or have come back to visit.

The Lodge is a four bedroom log house constructed from materials from the property in 1935. It features a large living and dining room perfect for an extended family, a kitchen set up ideal for large family meals, one full bath and two 1/2 baths, and two porches for relaxing.

Our outdoor chapel is nestled in the woods edge with a view over our valley and creates a nice effect for your wedding photos. There is plenty of room for 200 + guests to sit and stand in and about the space. You can offer a shuttle up to the site for those who need it. Please see for photos of some of our happy couples using the Chapel, and other locations for their wedding. We do encourage couples to find the ‘spot’ that is right for them on the grounds though. Many weddings have blessed multiple spots throughout Deerfields.

Our  pavilion is a terrific reception site with views of both lakes. This space comes with ten 60’’ round tables, three buffet tables, 70 chairs, iPod capable sound system, bar, staging for a band, and lighting on dimmers to set the mood. Linens are not included and would need to be procured from an outside source. You may bring in outside catering and alcohol.

There are no curfews on the reception or rehearsal parties so enjoy your time and use it as you may. We provide parking help the few hours before the ceremony to keep the parking organized, and direct campers to the weekend camping area.

To make an appointment to tour the grounds and discuss pricing please call John J. Redden at 828-329-5003 or send us an email.

Thank you and take care….
