Overlook Barn – a NC Mountain Wedding Venue in Banner Elk
The Overlook Barn is one of the best NC mountain wedding venues. If you’re seeking a rustic barn wedding but also loves the idea of sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as the backdrop to your ceremony, this venue will be your dream come true.
The star attraction on the property is a renovated historic barn that is perched atop Beech Mountain, NC. It is a white barn which gives it an elegant air, even as it is rustic. When you walk in, you first are awestruck by the 30-foot arched ceilings with original exposed wood beams.
The Overlook Barn was fully renovated in 2015 with brides and grooms in mind. It is the epitome of upscale rustic elegance. Renovations included installing high-end acid-stained concrete floors, opening stalls for additional event space, renovating four bathrooms, and building two upscale suites for brides and grooms to get ready in: The Styling Suite and Polishing Room. Additionally, the Overlook Barn has pre-installed string lighting and electric outlets generously dispersed throughout the property to allow flexibility for all events. The Overlook Barn can accommodate 250 guests for a seated dinner.
The Story of Overlook Barn
The owners Katie & David, live in Durham NC. They bought the property in 2015 and lovingly renovated it for their own wedding.
In the 1960s, Katie’s grandfather had built a barn surrounded by acres of meadow and forest on Beech Mountain. The couple purchased the barn from Katie’s uncle and worked closely with Katie’s father to build the elegant and festive venue they imagined. The project was a family affair and the space reflects the warmth and love that built it. Their wedding on August 1st, 2015 was the inaugural event at the Overlook Barn.
