About Us

The Poplars at Bearwallow Mountain is an event and wedding venue just 16 miles southeast of Asheville, NC. Here you will find 75 acres of land that sits on the ridge of the eastern continental divide of the United States, symbolic of two separate halves coming together. Mature poplar trees span the incredibly private, secluded property. Views of the Blue Ridge Mountains surround you. Available for weddings and other events including reunions, birthday celebrations, family gatherings and holiday parties. The venue is suited for parties up to 75 guests. The private property offers multiple acres for nature walks and exploring, including 2 different off-site hiking trails right on Bearwallow Mountain. Utilize The Pavilion and enjoy an extended weekend with your family and friends playing corn hole and pickle ball. An ideal place to relax, rejuvenate and reunite before and during your celebration. Includes access to Bearwallow Cottage, Bearwallow Retreat, The Pavilion and The Grounds.

Extended Stay Weekend Wedding Experience

Our extended stay weekend wedding experience includes accommodations on the property for 28, extended access to your venue, use of the site for rehearsal and/or dinner at no additional cost, lodging for bridal party or other guests, additional time for rental deliveries, rental returns and additional photography time. Guaranteed to be the only wedding/event on the 75 acre property during your booking. A venue host present during your event, parking and a parking attendent as needed as well as tables and chairs for up to 75 guests are all included in our experience. The Poplars includes 4 unique spaces, allowing both an indoor and outdoor experience for your event. The Grounds is an ideal outdoor location for wedding ceremonies to take place as it is naturally shaded with large trees. The covered 1600 square foot event Pavilion was built because there have been multiple requests to host a wedding on the property despite any advertisement! It provides an indoor open air option for receptions as well as a backup plan in case of inclement weather. The space is equipped with electricity, lights, a sound system with blue tooth, speakers with receiver and water access. Two large homes: Bearwallow Retreat and Bearwallow Cottage are utilized as separate spaces for the bride and groom to get ready prior to saying "I do". Both homes have large covered decks with hot tubs, gas grills, fire pits, fully equipped kitchens and laundry spaces. Pricing for our extended stay weekend wedding experience varies depending upon time of year- ranging from approximately $7,500- $10,500.

The natural beauty of the poplar trees and the breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains provide a blank canvas for you to create and execute your own unique wedding vision. You are welcome to use your choice of vendors in the area, though we do have a list of recommendations if you would like some direction. Tours of the property are by appointment only. Please contact our events director Kristen for information regarding availability and to schedule a tour!

  • My husband and I just had our wedding at their amazing venue! It was perfect! Spectacularly beautiful! Alan and Anne worked with us every step of the way and were such great hosts! The house is spacious and clean. We had plenty of room for our whole bridal party. There’s great hiking right off the property, but the property itself has gorgeous views of the mountains! I 100% recommend their cabin for events, wedding, weekend get aways, and personal retreats!
