The Inn at Tranquility Farm staff were wonderfully accommodating and attentive, helping with whatever little mishap pops up. They are super easy to get to, and have a ton of killer views. When picking the ceremony spot, the veranda is a must! It has the best view, and chandeliers for an afternoon or evening wedding. Their Bridal Suite is huge, and such a wonderful place to relax before the big moment. I am so grateful to the Inn at Tranquility Farm for all they did for my husband and I on our big day.
I recently had my wedding at the Inn. It was everything I had ever wanted. The staff were incredibly helpful and were a huge part of my perfect day! The venue is absolutely perfect, combining mountain views with southern elegance.
We could speak for hours about how amazing this venue is!!! Every girl dreams about having a fairy tale wedding, and I truly believe I did, mostly because of the Inn at Tranquility Farm. My husband and I toured the east coast looking for the perfect venue for months. We lucked upon the Inn at Tranquility Farm. I knew the second we stepped onto the grounds that we had found where we were going to celebrate our wedding. Looking at the pictures and visiting the venue, the beauty of this place is undeniable. Pretty much everyone that came to our wedding used a picture taken at the wedding as their new profile pic. But this venue is so much more than a jaw-dropping backdrop. The staff at the Inn took my vision and executed it smoothly and with class. Most people have at least one story of something that went wrong or one horror story from their wedding. We have none! Which is pretty impressive since we live about 600 miles away and planned from afar. Sutton and the staff were a Godsend and I could not have asked for more. They not only helped with venue-related things, Sutton was an amazing person to give an honest opinion about all of the vendors in the area. The house is stunning as well and made for the perfect setting for the wedding night. You will be spoiled until you leave (because you have to, I wanted to stay forever).
Picture your dream wedding venue. Times infinity. That is The Inn at Tranquility Farm. The location, backdrop and buildings all make for the perfect wedding experience. Not only was the venue itself unbelievably amazing, but the staff were professional and fully prepared for everything. Each and every vendor meeting confirmed our fascination with the Inn, as all our vendors spoke glowingly and without reservation about their love for working weddings there. Don't just take it from us - speak with anyone in the surrounding area and they'll tell you the Inn at Tranquility Farm sits at the top of their list too.
We fell in love with this place the moment we saw it. The view is beautiful, you can have both your ceremony and reception on-site. The grounds are nicely landscaped and the inn itself is fantastic, with lovely rooms and a gracious porch that overlooks the Smoky Mountains. Sutton and her team met every need and exceeded every expectation. It rained like crazy on our wedding and still everyone had a great time. Everyone was escorted to and from the outdoor and indoor spaces by a staff member with an umbrella. There is a valet service so parking is convenient and depending on what package you choose they have beautiful dinnerware/flatware and no need to rent tables/chairs, signage etc. We chose the all-inclusive package and it was well worth it to not have to source those things elsewhere. They make a point of staying up to date with all the ceremony and reception accessories (i.e. table decorations, numbers, etc..), so we had a nice variety to choose from. We also chose to hire Sutton as our 'Day-Of Coordinator.' She is so professional and awesome! We met with her the day we took a tour and chose the venue and when it was time to choose a Coordinator I didn't want to look at anyone else. She has great hospitality experience and it shows. After our 45 day conference call I said to my fiancée "I am no longer worried about anything because I know if I forget 10 things, Sutton will remember 12." She handled everything quickly, efficiently, gave great advice when we were unsure of a decision, and I couldn't have been happier with how our wedding was managed. I can't recommend the Inn at Tranquility Farm (and Sutton and her team) highly enough!
Our October wedding at the Inn was nothing short of a fairytale! We were initially drawn in by the beautiful surroundings, but as we compared the Inn to other venues, we knew this was where we wanted our big day to be. We chose the all-inclusive package, as well as Sutton’s planning services and were thrilled with both. The Inn is certainly not a “budget” wedding venue, but the value of the services and professionalism is priceless and we really felt like we got a great deal. There was no “nickel and diming”, and truly all the little details were covered. I didn’t have to worry about where to rent tables, linens, etc. They even have decorations you can borrow! I know so many brides who weren’t able to relax and enjoy the planning process due to this, but I can truly say I got to! We worked with all preferred vendors and the communication amongst all was great! As a “type A” bride, I was able to be fully present on my wedding day, knowing that all the details were handled by Sutton and the team we had put together. Everything went off without a hitch and all our friends and family commented on how well the evening flowed, as well as the beauty of the site. We will cherish the photographs and memories for years to come!
I can't say enough about the Inn at Tranquility Farm for our May 2017 wedding. Its no secret that its in a beautiful location with a breathtaking view but the quality of the Inn as a venue goes beyond that. As an event planner for many years I have very high expectations about how an event should be planned and run, Sutton and the Inn exceeded all of those expectations. From the very first meeting Sutton was helpful and personable with lots of suggestions for vendors and ideas for decor. She always responded to emails within a day leading up to the day of and coordinated flawlessly with all of our vendors day of. When I wanted a difficult lighting set up Sutton was willing to work with me to make my vision come true! I believe the difference is in the details and thats truly where the Inn stands out. The little signs they put out, the things they care about, the ideas they give. I even ran into the owner one day I was up there and she recognized my name as her "May bride!" Its amazing that a venue can make every bride feel like they are the only person getting married there the entire year!
I recently attended a wedding at this lovely venue while it was pouring the rain. I was very impressed at how the facility and staff were prepared to handle the not so sunny day. If you’re looking for a venue that goes above and beyond to meet your every need then I highly recommend The Inn at Tranquility Farm.
The Inn at Tranquility Farm is a wonderful place to have your wedding and reception. Sutton and her entire staff were wonderful to work with. Everyone that attended my best friend’s wedding had nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue (especially the view).
My dream wedding came true at the Inn. The reception could not have gone better and Sutton was priceless to have as our planner. Everything went smoothly and the venue was absolutely stunning - pictures do not do it justice. If I could do it all again, I wouldn't change a thing.
I can't say enough good things about this place. My wife and I picked it for the view, and were pleasantly surprised by the service offered in addition to the facility. Great place, great people. We'd recommend the Inn to anybody!
This is the venue dreams are made of! Not only does it have the most beautiful backdrop, but every detail of this venue is breathtaking. I could not have dreamed of a more beautiful place to get married! Everything came together perfectly thanks to Sutton and her awesome team! Sutton worked from the day we set the date to make sure every detail fell into place and made sure I had nothing to worry about on my special day. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for making my wedding day everything I’ve ever dreamed of!
The Inn at Tranquility Farm was absolutely the best place to have my wedding. They are so prepared for every possibility. They have tons of on site decorations and the reception space is highly customizable. Sutton worked wonderfully with my wedding planner to make my day go off without a hitch. All of my guests loved the beautiful views and amazing vibe of this venue. I highly recommend having your wedding at this amazing venue!
I would give this venue 6 stars if I could. I recently had my wedding at this location and my guests raved at the beauty and elegance of this location. It's lovely for an outdoor wedding or inside wedding. The wedding coordinator Sutton is absolutely the best. She made our experience at the Inn perfect! She helped me achieve exactly what I envisioned on this perfect day. I have nothing but cherished memories from this experience and lots of compliments from all the guest. Best venue around!
The Inn at Tranquility Farm was absolutely perfect. Everyone from us, to our families and guests were raving about how gorgeous the venue is and how incredible the staff was. The outside ceremony area is absolutely breathtaking, even with a cold and rainy day. The staff was so helpful that even on a rainy day, there was nothing to worry about since they were so on top of it that they had a gazebo set up with sides that roll down. Also, the inside of the Inn is beautiful and extremely accommodating, we had everything we needed to get ready and more. The suite has a beautiful view that will make you never want to leave. It is extremely convenient having the indoor reception right by the ceremony area and is also breathing. If you want to take your guests breath away I highly recommend The Inn at Tranquility Farm- they will love it! I also strongly recommend their wedding planning services. Sutton (our wedding planner) was extremely helpful on the many months leading up to the wedding and also the day of. Having her there from day one made a huge difference with the many details that go into planning a wedding. She really helped tie everything together (and also make sure I didn't forget any details)!!
Where or how do we begin to say thank you! Saturday was perfection. We can’t tell you how many times and how many ways that people have told us so…not that we needed to hear it in order to know it! We have never seen Taylor so happy, less stressed about an important event, or party and dance so much! The day went exactly as she dreamed…minus the BEE! Ha! The Inn at Tranquility Farm is gorgeous. The facilities are perfect. Sutton's list of suggested vendors made a seamless team. The Inn's staff did their jobs in such a way that we weren’t even aware of them until things were done. BUT…none of it would have come together and been what it was, without Sutton Katz! Her thoroughness, understanding tempered with the needed level of authority, her ability to balance a bride’s needs with a mother’s input, her professionalism and attention to detail…all of these make Sutton an incredible asset to The Inn and TO US! Thank you Inn at Tranquility Farm! Thank you Sutton.
I cannot recommend this place enough! The venue = perfection. Everyone raved about how gorgeous our wedding was. And to top off the perfect venue the staff, especially Sutton, was amazing to work with. She had everything planned and organized for me. There was no point that I was nervous something would go wrong. She had everything under control and made sure my night was perfect and unforgettable. I cannot thank Sutton and the inn enough for the perfect dream wedding!!!
My husband and I got married in June in a private creekside ceremony, followed by a bash at the Inn. Five months later, friends and family are still talking about what a wonderful place we chose. The Inn offers a perfect backdrop for a mountain wedding, with all the amenities for a relaxed and unforgettable experience.
The Inn at Tranquility Farm was everything promised and more. We were looking at several wedding venues in the area. But, once we toured the Inn and met with Sutton, we knew we didn't need to look any further. The Inn at Tranquility gave us total access to the most impressive venue in these mountains with several private indoor and outdoor areas for fantastic pictures and amazing views. But, in addition, high quality linens, dishes, glassware, additional decorations and any other amenities on site were available to us for no extra fee. Sutton saw to the flawless execution of the bride and groom's vision for their wedding and kept everything running smoothly. All of the vendors worked together well, provided exceptional service, and made certain that this wedding was everything the bride and groom had hoped it would be. For a stress free, memorable, and beautiful event of any kind, we would highly recommend the Inn at Tranquility Farm.
It is the most beautiful setting for a wedding from the gazebo for the wedding, to the house for getting ready, the absolutely gorgeous wrap around porch, the grounds, and of course the staff, who are fabulous. We were married in June 2016. Even now our friends and family cannot stop talking about what a gorgeous place it was, neither could our photographer! Sutton, the manager, is fantastic and will make sure your day goes off without a hitch and exactly as you want (and even if there is a hitch, you won't know about it because she is that good!). Sutton was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the process from booking all the way to the wedding. She was great about answering questions right away and providing helpful suggestions on things we wouldn't have thought of otherwise. The views were amazing with so much space to admire them. The hall looked fantastic and had no problem fitting a band, dance space, large bar and tables for our 100 guests. There was definitely room to spare. The front porch and grassy area in front of the main house was perfect for our cocktail hour with a bar on the porch. The main house made for a great staging area to hang out and get ready during the day. Great venue, great people. Couldn't have asked for a better day and better experience.
Amazing venue with a staff that tends to every need, so your day is stress-free and fabulous!
10 stars if we could! We were married on October 14, 2016 at the Inn at Tranquility Farm. It was the most perfect day. First, the venue, settings and scenery are absolutely breathtaking. Sutton and her team were an absolute delight to work with. They made sure everything went better than planned, all while smiling and not breaking a sweat. The level of service we received from our initial visit was top-notch. We took advantage of the entire property - ceremony in the gazebo, family-style dinner on the porch and reception in the pavilion. Our family could not stop taking pictures and commenting on how special the property was. We would absolutely recommend the Inn at Tranquility Farms - your event will be spectacularly special!
I just got married at the Inn on 10/16/16 and couldn't have had a more perfect wedding. We had already fell in love with a venue but it was out of our budget so we took a leap of faith and set up an appointment at the Inn and booked that same week! We forgot all other venues even existed. The views are amazing. It's nice and private for weddings and you don't have to worry about anyone sneaking in on your wedding. The bridal suite is huge and plenty of room for everyone to spread out and get ready. Sutton was AMAZING and we were so grateful for her. She took the stress and craze out of wedding planning. Any time I got stressed I just told Sutton and she immediately handled anything going on. The owners were amazing and helpful the day of. Everyone makes sure your day is perfect and you don't worry. They got my food, drinks, and checked on me frequently. Best venue and staff hands down!
Having our wedding at The Inn at Tranquility Farm was absolutely perfect. After my first visit there, I knew it was the location I was looking for, and immediately signed a contract and cancelled all other appointments I had that week at other locations. If you're wanting a private mountain wedding, this is it. Overlooking mountains, lots of room to spread out, and tons of photo-op backgrounds. Plus chic, new, and beautiful decor and landscaping. The service? Amazing. Couldn't be better. The owners and staff working there do everything they can for each couple to make it exactly what they are looking for, within their own unique style. Sutton's communication and customer service is top-notch. Her work with not only me, but with the vendors I had selected, were way above my expectations. Also, getting to stay the night at the venue in the house, was absolutely perfect for me and my new husband. :) I really encourage you, if you're looking to have your wedding here to take time and visit to see the beauty it captures. If not, I know their website and Facebook site has a lot of great information and pictures from various weddings/events.
I worked with The Inn at Tranquility Farm this summer for a wedding, and I was impressed in every way. I am not sure that words can accurately express the quality of this vendor. Every aspect of the inn is of highest quality, from the facility itself to the staff and level of professionalism. The facility is clean, safe, and absolutely stunning. The staff works diligently to accommodate every need, and the events run smoothly because of it. Working at the inn made my job seem easier and more rewarding than every before. The wedding came together beautifully, and I was proud to play a small role in that. I will always take advantage of any opportunity to work with the inn, and I would recommend it to anyone, from other vendors to a bride and groom.
