This venue has a secluded feeling but is only 10 minutes from town! Accessibility is important so that your guests don’t have the hassle of traveling far from town to celebrate. We love an easy wedding day - for your and your guests. Asheville is a small mountain paradise full of breweries, shopping, and culture which is a great destination for your guests to spend the weekend. It also means you can bring in some of the most incredible vendors easily from the city to bring your vision to life.

Douglas Ellington House is for those that love nature!

Although the venue isn't far from Asheville, it is tucked away in the woods. That means you can enjoy a very private and intimate ceremony in pleasant seclusion. The quietness invites the natural melody from the nearby stream, surrounding birds, and wind through the leaves. It’s elegant and quaint, intimate and just perfect for anyone who loves nature. There is even a tree swing where you can indulge your inner child.

There is a quaint cottage at Douglas Ellington House that couples can book to start their happily ever after.

If you love the grounds, like I know you will, you can stay longer with your significant other after your guests leave. It’s the perfect spot for a romantic night to celebrate being newlyweds! Sometimes you don't want to travel right away so that you can be more rested for your honeymoon. The cottage has more character than booking a nearby hotel and no one will bother you!
