About the Property

A Wedding and Events Property

Welcome to the ElderMann’s Overlook Barn property! The owners Katie & David bought the property in 2015 and lovingly renovated it for their own wedding. Hear more about their story and the rest of the Overlook Barn team here. Read below for more details on the Overlook Barn, Mary’s Meadow, and the Cliffside Barn.

Overlook Barn:

The star attraction on the property (beside the views) is our 6,500+ square foot renovated barn that is perched atop Beech Mountain, NC. 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.

Mary’s Meadow:

The first thing you see when driving around the bend to the property is a multiple-acre meadow lined by forest on one side and an expansive 40-mile view of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the others. The meadow has a custom-built wooden ceremony stage with a beautiful rock wall surround for brides, grooms, and their wedding party to stand on and be perfectly framed by the gorgeous mountain backdrop. For a reception, the meadow can also hold a tented (or under the stars!) event for 500+ guests. If you want a breathtaking view as the backdrop for your ceremony or reception, this is the perfect spot for you.

Cliffside Barn:

Now here! The once-named “small barn” has officially arrived. Cliffside Barn was renovated and officially opened in late 2016. It is named after one of the owner’s fathers, Cliff, who led the charge on renovations for the property. This is a 1,000 square foot barn with beautiful original wood floors, original exposed-beam arched ceilings, brand new 45-light chandelier, glass garage door that opens to a stunning view, and large covered deck with 750 square feet of additional event space. It also has a brand new 3-stall restroom on the lower level. Cliffside Barn is an optional add-on (additional fee applies) and is a perfect location for cocktail hour, covered intimate ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, welcome parties, and more!
