“Paint Rock Farm is one of the MOST special places I’ve visited on this earth. From the kind people that run the farm, to the incredible scenery that surrounds the place… I find myself always yearning to return.


“My wife Rachel and I love the place so much that just had our wedding at Paint Rock Farm on 8.13.22! The barn is incredible and provides that cool WNC mountain vibe. Our friends and family loved being able to stay on site the night before and of our wedding in their 11 glamping cabins they offer. All of them are well built, super clean, and just what our guests needed to refresh and recharge. The cabins provide a nice nature reset while feeling right at home!


“If you are looking for a down right CUTE wedding with incredible mountain and river scenery in every direction… Look no further friends. Your day will be filled with love from everyone at paint rock and you will be happy you chose this very special place as your venue.”
