What venues do you offer for weddings?
There are several beautiful locations to marry within the gated community of Hidden Mountain East. Two of the most popular locations for larger gatherings are The Prayer Gardens at Hidden Mountain and The Lodge at Hidden Mountain Resort. For smaller wedding parties of 10 or less, The Gazebo at The Dell is a lovely spot set over a small pond surrounded by landscaped walkways with arched landscape bridges and willow trees. These venues can be reserved through Kay Green, our Director of Group Sales..
Guests of Hidden Mountain East may also choose from lovely settings throughout the resort grounds, such as The Picnic Pavilions beside our fishing ponds, Spring Lake and Summer Lake. These are rustic pavilions set in a valley in the resort. Depending on the time of year, the foliage can really make this area stand out. It is important to note that these locations cannot be reserved, so they are First Come, First Served.
If a guest reserves our 14-bedroom River Lodge, we also recommend the riverside below The Lodge for an open-air Smoky Mountain wedding.
For events of up to 50 guests, our newly-renovated West Woods venue offers both indoor and outdoor options for your wedding at our original off-the-beaten-path location of Hidden Mountain West.
Finally, many guests choose to marry in one of our log cabin rental homes, each decorated with a unique mountain theme.”
