About Us

Why McGuire’s Millrace Farm….

The Location.  McGuire’s Millrace Farm is your premier southern wedding destination.  Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina, McGuire’s Millrace Farm specializes in elegant, rustic chic barn weddings.  Surround your guests with majestic mountains, rolling fields, peaceful breezes, and the magic that McGuire’s Millrace Farm is all about.

The Barn.  Not one of your typical barn venues, the McGuires pride themselves on their facility.  This 6,600 square foot barn accommodates small or large events.   Wrought iron chandeliers hang from 30 foot ceilings, and beautiful hardwood tables and chairs sit on polished concrete floors. Other amenities include, but are not limited to, his and hers dressing rooms, beautifully finished restrooms, a commercial kitchen.

The Grounds.  Have your ceremony underneath a naturally romantic canopy of river birches, at the timber-framed arbor, or nestled in a rolling field while the carriage horses graze and the mountains rise in the background.  Another top choice is at the arched foot bridge amongst the flowers and the placid waters of the pond.  And if the weather turns inclement, you can move the entire wedding inside at no extra charge.

The Service.  Event planning is a love, passion and lifestyle for the McGuire family.  Specializing in the event planning business since 1999, you are ensured southern hospitality at its best.  Your Venue Coordinator will be available to assist you every step of the way, from welcome parties, to morning after brunches and on your big day, your event will be the only affair held.  This means that the staff will be focused on only you and your guests.    At McGuire’s Millrace Farm, you will be treated like family. 

The Food.  Whether you want a good old fashioned southern barbeque or a 5-course prime rib dinner, McGuire’s Millrace Farm’s award winning chef is sure to please.  Display your food in a decorated rustic canoe or in hand hewed wooden bowls.  Buffets are elegantly displayed and your guests catered to.  Plated meals are also available.  It’s all up to you.

The History.  Step back in time the instant you arrive on the property.  Pre-Civil War and Pre-Depression buildings such as the old McGuire homestead, country store and corn crib still stand.  For décor, use treasures and antiques discovered in the McGuire’s attics and historic buildings, antique church pews, or oak whiskey barrels.

  • The McGuire's a truly a one-of-a-kind find! I am from Blue Ridge, GA (which is only about 40 minutes away from the venue) but I would have driven hours just to have my wedding here. Linda, Natalie, and Tommy worked with me every step of the way--which, as any bride knows, working with a soon-to-be bride is not the easiest task! I am still amazed--as I look back one year after my wedding--at how smooth, stress-free, and beautiful that my wedding was! As gorgeous as pictures of this venue are, they do not nearly grasp the beauty that McGuire's Millrace Farm contains. The food, the location, the employees, and the incredible view are only a few perks McGuire's Millrace Farm has to offer. Not only did the McGuire's keep in touch just for my wedding, when they heard that my father was in an accident nearly a year after my wedding, they contacted me to check-in and let me know that they were thinking of my family. That, to me, speaks wonders; the McGuire's are truly an amazing family... Read more
