"Quiet Setting overlooking the Broad River"
"We could see Chimney Rock from our porch."
"So close to Lake Lure!"
There are certain times of the year, when the mountains are at their best and the Inn is especially desirable for special events.
Plan a wedding during low season( Jan-April 15) and enjoy cost savings while still taking advantage of all our Inn has to offer. Picture yourself and your family gathered around our beautiful stone fire place for your ceremony.
Plan your wedding for the Spring, when the ornamental fruit trees are in bloom, or wait just a little later and the Dogwoods are spectacular. The Wedding Arbor is great for a garden ceremony! This lovely addition to The Esmeralda grounds, will be yet another beautiful spot to celebrate your marriage.
The deck on Summer evenings is a beautiful spot for a small ceremony. Chimney Rock is in the background, and the waterfall adds a melodic touch to any event.
If you haven't experienced Fall in the Carolina mountains, it's time you did! The color is breathtaking. It's still warm enough for a ceremony in the Arbor or by the Spa and fireplace.
Christmas at The Esmeralda Inn & Restaurant is wonderful. We wrap the building in a red ribbon, adorn the tree with hand-picked decorations and light the fire. Winter at The Esmeralda is a quiet, peaceful time to escape, relax and celebrate your special moments.
