Located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, this private 100+ acre estate is dripping with six generations of history. Still standing today are The Country Store (dated Pre-Depression), the Old McGuire Homestead (dated Pre-Civil War) and The Corn Crib. Newer additions include a magical arched foot bridge spanning a tranquil pond, flower gardens, majestic rows of river birch trees, and a handcrafted solid wood arbor, all of which are complimented by the gracefully rising mountains in the background.
This luxurious 8,000 square foot timber framed barn boasts 30’ tongue and groove ceilings, and 30 wrought iron chandeliers, including a 7' wrought iron chandelier with Cartier crystals! Over 2,000 crystals glam up the room which also has polished concrete floors, elegant floor-to-ceiling stacked stone gas log fireplace, exquisite 2-piece bar with granite counter tops and gold plated sink, a certified commercial kitchen and an ambiance that is sure to wow even the pickiest of guests.
Weddings can be held at McGuire’s Millrace Farm any time of year. The air conditioned/heated barn with its elegant yet charming décor makes a beautiful backdrop for any ceremony. And, if you plan your wedding outdoors and the weather turns inclement, the entire ceremony can easily be moved indoors at no extra charge.
The day of your wedding is special not only to you, but to us as well. We want to emphasize your exclusivity on the Farm; that is why we only book one event at a time. The grounds, your Event Planner, and the McGuire’s Millrace Farm staff will be at your disposal from the moment you arrive to the time you leave.
Capable of handling 225 guests, McGuire’s Millrace Farm specializes in the comfort of your guests and setting a one-of-a-kind ambiance. Sturdy solid oak tables and chairs, antique church pews, oak whiskey barrels, cedar wood benches, fire pits, tents, a 25' x 25' dance floor, and ambient lighting are just a few of the many settings available for your special day. Inside or out, your reception is sure to represent your individual style and beauty.
Our highly-qualified chef will create a fantastic menu for you and your guests to enjoy. You can choose from hors d’oeuvres on the lawn to a luxurious meal served hot inside the barn. Dressed buffets and a decorated cake area are available to match your colors and theme.
Your wedding and/or reception will be one-of-a-kind and uniquely you. Feel free to bring your own décor or use ours and add your special touches.
