Green Park Inn is a historical location with modern touches. Founded in 1891 and fully renovated in 2010, half of the hotel’s rooms hold their classic charm, and the other half have been redone. With classic touches like turndown service and a full hot breakfast served in their tea room, it’s a great place for your friends and family to stay. You can have your rehearsal dinner at the hotel’s Chestnut Grille, a gourmet southern restaurant, or make the wedding a more intimate affair in the tea or laurel rooms. With a great deal for couples, whether it’s the high season or during the week, it’s also a beautiful location for your honeymoon.

You can also hold a block of rooms for guests so travel to and from their lodging to the wedding is simple.
Camp Sky Ranch is a rustic retreat location for weddings that features an outdoor chapel and in-house catering from local “modern mountain cuisine” restaurant, The Gamekeeper.

The Crestwood Resort and Spa, located between Blowing Rock and Boone NC, balances the beauty of the high country with pampering touches like spa treatments and classic inn rooms, villas and cottages. The Crestwood Resort and Spa has both lawn and terrace locations for ceremonies, as well as reception venues that include the dining area, library, bar and lounge, creating a classic location for your wedding nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains.
Because the high country is such a wonderful place to get married in, many couples are also relocating to the Blowing Rock area.
