My fiance and I are getting married at the House Mountain Inn on October 15th! Even though we haven't yet gotten married, we absolutely love this venue. The service has been wonderful.

We are having our wedding at House Mountain Inn in October 2016. Although we haven't been married there yet, working with Jaime and Carrie has been the best experience. They have been more than helpful when we want to visit, and whenever we have questions they come back within the same day with answers! The venue is breath taking! I cannot wait until our wedding!

I can't say enough about how incredible it was to have our reception at the Irvine Estate at House Mountain Inn. The planning process with Carrie began over a year before our wedding date and she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She promptly answered any and all questions we had throughout the planning process and helped us stay within our budget. She helped make sure everything went off without a hitch.

Now let me explain one thing. The photos of this place do not do it justice. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. You get an absolutely spectacular view of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains. There is no place like it. All of our guests kept raving about how beautiful the venue was. Initially they were hesitant to get on a bus and drive 30 minutes, but once they arrived their jaws dropped at the beauty of the place. It's truly one of a kind.

Now the food. I don't even know where to begin. Everything that was served was cooked perfectly and tasted incredible. The food was the one aspect of the reception my husband and I wanted to make sure was perfect. House Mountain Inn absolutely delivered. The hors d'oeuvres (chicken satay with peanut sauce, meatballs, spring rolls) were a great start to the cocktail hour. I saw people chasing the servers around because they wanted more! ;) The chicken piccata had to be the star of the night though. EVERYONE LOVED IT. It was perfectly seasoned and prepared. We were incredibly happy with how everything turned out.

Overall, it was the perfect location for us. Carrie and Jamie were so helpful in the planning process, which made it easier for us to plan a wedding from out of town. I can't say enough good things about this place. It's one of a kind and I'm so happy we were able to begin our marriage here!

My husband and I got married at House Mountain Inn this past weekend and were blown away by how everything was taken care of. Our wedding planner, Jamie, took my notes and our boxes of decorations and did everything we needed her to do without needing me for clarifications during the rehearsal dinner or our wedding day. My husband and I were truly left to enjoy of special weekend together with no worries in our mind and knew that everything was being taken care of. We are so blessed to have found this location to get married at and we want everyone to know what a great venue this is. It is highly affordable and the food is PHENOMENAL. All the guests were raving about how delicious the food was and how beautiful the wedding venue was. My husband and I held our wedding at the House Mountain Inn location (there are 2 locations to choose from on the property) and were able to have all of our bridal and groom party stay in the same building with us. Each guest had their own room, some with jacuzzi tubs and others with hot tubs on the deck. All the bridesmaids and groomsmen were so thankful for the opportunity to have a mini-vacation while enjoying the wedding and keep talking about how relaxed and rejuvinated they felt after the weekend. If you love beautiful views, being outdoors, and want a rustic wedding, this venue is just what you need! You won't be disappointed with ANY aspect of your weekend and can feel confident that all of your wedding needs will be taken care of at HMI.

Our son and new daughter got married at the Irvine Estate on 6/25/2016. Words cannot describe how perfect this wedding venue is! The bride's parents, bride and groom, and my husband and I, went to House Mountain Inn and stayed the prior year to check things out for a possible wedding venue for our kids. We immediately fell in love with the place and Jamie and Carrie (and their husbands) were just amazing at showing us all House Mountain Inn has to offer... we found our kids weekend wedding venue! Over the next year and 1/2, Carrie (who handles the Irvine wedding arrangements) stayed in contact with us and handled all our questions, guided us, and made the upcoming wedding weekend come about with such ease! My husband and I rented the Irvine house for the weekend of the wedding. It was awesome!!! We didn't have to worry about a thing! We had the wedding rehearsal & dinner Friday evening, breakfast and lunch for the wedding party Saturday, the wedding Saturday evening, breakfast Sunday morning (which ALL the food Is absolutely delicious!!!)... we never had to lift a finger and never left the mountain! It was such a relaxing wedding weekend. We stayed up late Friday and Saturday evening, with our feet up, drinking coffee, snacking and reflecting on the day. Woke up to an absolutely delicious breakfast the next morning. Such an enjoyable, relaxing way to have a wedding! Carrie and staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and take away all the worries of the weekend. If you want a beautiful venue, with delicious food, and someone to make your whole wedding go off without a hitch, you have to check out House Mountain Inn. You will love it there! Jamie and Carrie are absolutely awesome at what they do! We are so grateful for our kids perfect wedding weekend at the Irvine, and for all Carrie did to make it so special!

I do not have the words to describe what an incredible venue this was, and as a result how beautiful our wedding was. In the heart of the Shenandoah mountains- it has the most breathtaking views. I could not believe we were getting married in such a beautiful place, nestled right in the mountains with beauty every way you look. Irvine Estate was the perfect location for our wedding. Everything flowed smoothly from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception. Our guests were blown away by the stunning views. It genuinely is such an incredible location that even with minimal decorations it is a stunner.
Carrie was our wedding coordinator and she was a dream. I mean an absolute gem. With the most calm, genuine demeanor- she helped organize and orchestrate the day so it flowed so smoothly. She was so kind and patient with all wedding party members and family, and even thought of the smallest details so we didn't have to.
The food was great, dancing on the terrace with the breeze blowing was perfect for our guests. I could rave all day about this venue and its incredible staff. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat at this beautiful place and would highly recommend House Mountain Inn to anyone!

We booked the House Mountain Inn (HMI) for our wedding for several reasons. First of all, it is an absolutely beautiful venue located in the mountains of southwest Virginia. The views are stunning! Best of all, we had exclusive access to the HMI for our entire wedding weekend. Secondly, it has a great rain backup plan. There is a space for outdoor ceremonies, a covered pavilion, and an indoor ballroom all located on the same property. We were hoping to have our ceremony outdoors for our spring wedding but due to rain we moved the ceremony to the outdoor covered pavilion. The rain on the roof of the pavilion during our ceremony added a really peaceful and soothing ambience. As the rain and fog cleared towards the end of the ceremony, the mountains were neatly framed by the pillars of the structure for our guests. It made for great photos! Afterwards, we enjoyed dinner and danced all night in the HMI’s indoor ballroom (which has beautiful new wood floors!). Finally (and most importantly) the HMI comes with an absolutely amazing and helpful wedding planner, Jamie Grue. We worked with Jamie throughout the entire wedding planning process. She was happy to answer all of our questions and was super responsive which made the planning a fun and collaborative experience. Jamie and her wonderful staff ensured that our wedding day played out flawlessly. If we had the ability to give the HMI more than five stars we would. We can say with absolute confidence that anyone who has their wedding at the HMI will have an incredible experience.

I am so thrilled about my decision to get married at the Irvine Estate at House Mtn Inn!! I first discovered them through searching online and when I went to visit with my family, the venue was just as beautiful (and even more so!) than the pictures led me to believe. We met with Jamie who is so sweet, helpful, and organized! She helped us to get things started with booking them as our venue. I've only just begun the planning process, but I can't wait to work more with Jamie, sample their delicious food to pick a menu, and have a wonderful time in May in the beautiful mountains of Lexington. :)
