I can not say enough about Carol and her team! They were amazing and wonderful to work with and just a pure joy. The ceremony and reception site is beautiful! Food was fantastic, we received so many compliments and it was all due the professionalism and exceptional service provided by Mountain Branch. They will be my top choice for any future events.

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Carol and her team at Mountain Branch. They consistantly were aware of our needs and tended to them promptly. The staff was fun, but knew when it was time to handle their responsibilities. Everything was set up perfectly. I had zero problems with the food or alcohol. You just cant go wrong with this place. The view is amazing and my photos turned out beautifully. This was a same-sex wedding, and they treated us no differently than a heterosexual couple. We had some disabled family and the staff was always there to help us with keeping them safe.

Most. Perfect. Venue. Ever.

Carol & her top notch staff amazingly pulled together our most special day. Every single detail was well taken care of & even better than we could imagine. We felt well taken care of from start to finish! All of our details were executed flawlessly! It certainly was the best day of our lives and we couldn't have imagined a better place to have our Reception than at Mountain Branch! Cheri is one of a kind & truly did a fantastic job! She has a keen eye for the details. We received so many compliments on the venue and the food especially. Everything was so delicious! Mountain Branch is a one of a kind, beautiful venue with amazing views, indoor/outdoor Reception space and the most beautifully draped tent you will ever see!

We absolutely loved our wedding at mountain branch. The staff was very attentive the day/night of the wedding and they were on top of everything. I was incredibly happy with everything overall. A lot of our guests raved about the food and the bar. The bartenders were excellent and definitely had their work cut out for them. We did go through 3 venue coordinators within 1 year. But luckily it did not impact the wedding. LeeAnn, Carol and Sherry were beyond great. Overall, I would definitely recommend this venue.

I got married on September 6. Leading up to that was a breeze with Mountain Branch! They are so organized that everything is just basically done for you, and all you have to do is answer questions. The food, alcohol, cake, tables, chairs, some linens, and venue were all included in the price! Hello!!! Do you know how many brides plan all those things separately?! But I would like to point out the amazing coordinator, Carol. We had no a/c in our limo, on the hottest day of the year! So I contacted my wedding planner to get with Carol and see what we can do to cool off before I had to walk down the isle. When we showed up, there were cold drinks and a bucket of ice ready and waiting! Which wasn't the plan since I was just suppose to get out of the limo and get married!
All I can say is this was the best venue every and cannot thank the staff enough!

Carol and Mountain Branch made all my wedding dreams come true! I could not ask for a more perfect venue or staff to have taken care of my wedding! Carol and Sherry made my day stress free and the staff there were so attentive to me and my husband, as well as all our guests. We can not thank them enough for everything they did to make that day so perfect! We also have received so many compliments on the food and the breathtaking view, which made a gorgeous backdrop for our photos! Our guests have told us this was the best food they have ever had and the cake that is included with the wedding package was fabulous as well! Carol had every detail of the wedding planned out and took care of everything that day! She made all of our lives easier that day and was so responsive and flexible during the whole process, meeting with us several times to go over details and decorations. My wedding was one that I will never forget and I owe all of that to Carol and Mountain Branch.

Mountain Branch gave us absolutely everything I dreamed of for our wedding day. The food was beyond delicious, the drinks were excellent, and the atmosphere was perfect. As a bride, there is a TON going on that day. Mountain Branch made my day stress-free. That is a MUST that day. The wait staff was beyond wonderful, helpful, and kind to everyone. They were so fun, too! Sherry, the day-of event leader, was there to make things go so smoothly and decorated the place like no other! She was so sweet and helpful. The scenery is beautiful and picture perfect. The most important reason that my day was so dream-like was because of my wedding coordinator, Janeen Kuser. I cannot say enough about her. She listened to what we wanted and built upon it. It was like she could read my mind! I wasn't 100% positive about going to Mountain Branch in the beginning of my planning but because of Janeen, I can't imagine our fairytale day anywhere else. I HIGHLY recommend Mountain Branch for a wedding venue and use Janeen as your coordinator!!!!

Everything was perfect. Janeen, our event coordinator was there for us every minute, from the first time we met with her to the time we walked out of Mountain Branch after our wedding. Many of our friends commented on how attentive she was. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. I would definitely book another event with them.

I loved Mountain Branch! It was the first place my husband and I looked at for our wedding and the last. Everything is pretty much provided for you; the cake, food, tent, tables, chairs, ceremony space.
Kim Yontosh was an awesome coordinator. We did have a little mishap while Kim was on maternity leave and we had scheduled a tasting. Apparently they didn't have us scheduled in the books! But Kim gave us our menu selection to-go, so my husband and I were able to enjoy a lovely meal in private on our porch.
I also provided Mountain Branch with my decor for the tables and they did a great job of setting everything up.
We really lucked out the day of our wedding. We had beautiful day and everyone loved our venue. Thank you Kim for giving us the best day of our lives!!

Picking Mountain Branch as our ceremony and reception venue for our wedding was definitely one of the best decisions we made! Kim was extremely helpful during our entire (over a year long) wedding planning process, and helped me with every numerous e-mail I sent her. The value truly is unbeatable! The prices were great, the food was phenomenal, and every single person who worked there was so courteous.

The staff was exceptional in laying out our ceremony and reception better than I could have ever asked for.

Mountain Branch truly made sure that not only my husband and I had the best wedding ever, but they also made sure our guests had everything they needed. I have been getting continuous compliments on how great the food, service, and overall wedding was. You won't be disappointed having your wedding here!

Nice location, but I would not recommend Mountain Branch given all that I was disappointed with.
Mountain Branch is a beautiful location. Our contact there, Kimberly, was great. She was very responsive and flexible. We live about an hour and a half from the golf course so it's not always easy to come up there, especially when a lot of vendors want to meet during the week. Kimberly was flexible about when we met for our tasting. The food was great. All of the apps and entrees were delicious. I was disappointed at the amount of hor deurves that were passed throughout cocktail hour. I even heard from a few guests that they barely got any. My mother of all people only got a few pieces of cheese (which she said she had to cut herself, there had been some slices in the beginning but then no staff came back to cut the rest of the blocks). She saw a tray of butlered hor deurves go by one time and she wasn't even given the opportunity to grab something.
Another issue was that the AC unit was leaking onto the guests who were sitting at the table underneath of it. When I came over to greet that table, the people who had been closest to the tent wall under the AC were standing because they were getting wet. That is completely unacceptable, and even if AC units tend to do that (I have no idea), then the tables need to be arranged around that issue.
Another issue I had was that Mountain Branch threw away my cake topper. Sure it was an inexpensive acrylic set of our initials and a heart, but it was something I wanted to save. And sure I could just order a replacement, but I shouldn't have to.
Finally, during the planning I was told that guests would have their choice in cake flavor. Very important considering we had 4 flavors. I was told by several guests that they were only given one choice and it was just placed in front of them, rather than a tray of different flavors shown to each guest as I was promised.

Could not have asked for more! Carol McCarthy went above and beyond she felt like family after a year of planning. Any time I needed her she was already one step ahead, she even gave me her cell # the week before. How many hotels do that none.

Great Place! Our guests had a great time! it was a beautiful day and our guests were able to fully enjoy the beauty of the venue! Carol was FANTASTIC! Example: We were taking photos and there were a bunch of HS kids taking prom photos and she moved them out of the way with out us even having to ask. It is so refreshing to work with someone who does their job!!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Mountain Branch in October 2008. Overall, our experience there was absolutely wonderful. We received so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful view overlooking the golf course. The well-manicured greens provided a nice backdrop for pictures.

We enjoyed the food and heard about it from our guests for months afterwards. Everything was delicious! We provided open bar, and we were very impressed with their assortment of beers and alcohol. In all, the cost of the food/alcohol combination was much less expensive than we had compared at other venues.

We worked with Tracy Brown, and she made sure that all details went smoothly from the planning stage right up to the end of the reception. We could not have asked for a better person to help us with our wedding day.

The only issue that I have, which I didn't notice until I received my professional pictures, was that they allowed cars to park near the tent. As I was just starting my walk down the aisle, there were cars in the background....definitely didn't make for nice pictures. (Don't worry, there were other "walk down the aisle" shots, once I turned the corner and started walking down the grass aisle to my husband.) If I had only known beforehand, I would have requested that no cars be allowed that close to the tent.

My husband and I were very happy that we decided to go with Mountain Branch for our ceremony and reception. I only had 2 months to plan the wedding and the event planners made it not so stressful. I decided to go with a brunch reception and I was VERY happy with the turn out. The planners were a pleasure to work with. They patiently answered all my questions were accomodating on all of my requests. The tent was beautifully decorated and the food was very good. I received many, many compliments on the food, decor, and the beautiful view from the tent. My husband and I were so happy with the food that we try and dine at the restaurant on a monthly basis.

Mountain Branch also provided the catering. Food was delcicious and affordable. Huge portions too. Liquor was affordable, and they certainly kept it professional while keeping it fun.

The liason changed multiple times which made it difficult. I must have had three or four different people in charge at different times. Overall, the day of it was fine, but it was frustrating to have to keep repeating things for the sake of people who were new.

Mountain Branch has a public restaurant and bar, while most events take place in their gorgeous tent. The tent overlooks the golf course, and you couldn't ask for a better view. Although, it's right off Mountain Rd, the tent faces the golf course, so it doesn't feel like you are that close to the road. One problem was people from the public bar wandering over to my reception. The bartenders weren't noticing and neither was anyone else, and a few of my guests said that they were actually ordering drinks too. I guess it's hard to watch things like that. The reception ran over, and they were totally cool about it. They allowed people to stay, some to sober up, and they kept the bar open a little bit later. But it never felt like they were forcing people out.

One thing that bothered me was the fact that the reception manager basically forced my parents to take everything home that I had brought or was personal, that very evening. I thought we would come back the next day. Because of this, I think some things got ignored, and there were some things on the reception tables that made it into the trash.
