Now offering inclusive packages for the busy bride as well as 40 hr wkly office helpline for the DIY bride!



Offering medieval ambiance partnered with today's elegance and luxury, this authentically recreated Scottish border castle has been chosen by The Knot magazine as one of their "10 historic venues we love". Once a private estate, Castle Ladyhawke is now offered for weddings, special events, and private or corporate retreats. Available for one day events for up to 200 guests, the castle sits high on a ridge overlooking the Tuckasegee River in the spectacular mountains of Western North Carolina. This 62 acre gated estate is Western North Carolina's most private and romantic location for weddings and other special events. With both garden and interior locations for ceremonies and receptions, unpredictable weather is never a problem at Castle Ladyhawke. Since we book only one event per day you will have your choice of locations for your festivities; and can adapt to changing conditions effortlessly.
We offer venue only rentals for the entire day, fully or partially inclusive packages for the busy bride, and two elopement packages for smaller weddings. Full day rentals allow you ample time to prepare and enjoy the castle's 10,000 sf including our three spacious bedroom suites, authentic English Pub with pool table, darts, and big screen television, and many patios and balconies.We now offer guest accommodations at both our medieval styled Fable Village at Castle Ladyhawke or our whimsical Gypsy Camp so you and your guests can extend your magical experience; even the castle itself may be reserved for an overnight stay for up to twelve guests. Best suited for weddings of up to 200 guests, Castle Ladyhawke is located just one hour from Asheville’s Regional Airport, and ten minutes from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee. Read less

I knew in February 2013 when we first visited the Castle that we were going to get married there. My then fiance (now husband for 5 days) and I completely fell in love the moment we visited. We rented the castle all weekend, along with both on site villages (what a fantastic place for family and friends!) It was an absolutely perfect weekend. Kim and Joy were amazing in our requests and assisted us with whatever we needed, with a smile on their faces. I am still on cloud 9 over our perfect wedding weekend, and hope I never come back down. It is seriously a dream come true. No words to explain it's beauty and views...not to mention the details involved around every corner. I want to live there!!!! I could not have asked for a more perfect venue. The pictures do not do it justice... just the feeling you get while you are there with the people you love the most is indescribable. Thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams!

We had a small family only wedding and stayed the night in the Castle. It was a dream come true! They were so helpful in setting up everything exactly as we wanted and we could not have asked for a more beautiful venue. Every single detail in the decor of the castle makes it so authentic and amazing. Our pictures were amazing - everyone asked if we were at a location in Europe!! Some family also stayed in the Gypsy Camp and absolutely loved the cabins! It was so nice to have such a beautiful but remote venue that we had all to ourselves!! Thank you!!

Castle Ladyhawke was the perfect place for my Fairytale wedding. Kim, Joy and ALL the staff were GREAT!!! They were kind, courteous, professional, patient, friendly and accommodating. When the weather changed suddenly, the staff was extremely efficient and prompt in breaking down one area and setting it up for the ceremony in a matter of minutes. They are the BEST!! The Castle is absolutely breathtaking!! You really do not have to do a lot of decorating, because the Castle has its own natural beauty. The grounds are immaculate and there are hundreds of photo opportunities. The Castle can supply you with everything you need for your dream wedding. My day was perfect and everything I had ever dreamed of. Much appreciation to Kim, Joy and ALL the awesome staff of Castle Ladyhawke!!!

What a place to have a wedding. Such a vast amount of different ideas can be implemented there. The staff went far beyond what they needed to to help me with this wedding. Our rental company was 6 hours late but when they finally did arrive ALL the staff at the Castle jumped right in, with out my asking, and helped get the dining room set up. I was overwhelmed with everyone there. If you are looking for a dream wedding this is the place to go.

Oh my gosh, what's not to love about this gorgeous castle nestled in the most beautiful mountains on earth? I came across Castle Ladyhawke on a fluke, and I'm so glad I did. We rented the castle for the entire weekend, reserved all the cottages for our family members and just made a big ol' party of it. The castle staff is WONDERFUL, and the entire weekend was perfect. It was the most special weekend of my life, and I'll never forget it.

Kim and Joy were awesome. Venue speaks for itself! They set up vendor visits the first time we visited and that made the selection process easy. The caterer that nearly screwed up my wedding (elite catering) has been removed from their suggestions site so I believe the do their best to suggest quality responsible vendors! They are really good at answering questions and accommodating the brides needs.
