  • I had my wedding on September 19th 2020 at Lydia Mountain Lodge. The staff was so incredibly helpful before, during, and after the wedding. They had the entire event hall set up to my specifications by the time I arrived on Friday and they worked the whole evening to make the wedding perfect. Even had the event hall cleaned up the next morning before I woke up. They were attentive to detail, flexible with me during the pandemic, and did everything they could to make my day perfect. From having rooms to host the entire bridal party the whole weekend, to an amazing "glam room" that myself and the bridesmaids could get ready in, it was a perfect day. I wouldn't change a thing.

  • I love this venue! The views are absolutely breath taking! We got an excellent deal having our wedding on a Monday, we got the pavilion for 2 days/2nights along with a cabin. I read many people didnt like that they email or text, but thats my preferred form of communication and they are quick to email you back. They have almost all the rentals you need and they are a deal! My wedding is 2 and a half weeks away and I just can not wait!!

  • We chose to hold our ceremony and reception at the Barn at Lydia and I do not regret it one bit! Up until a couple of days out, we had planned on having our ceremony outside in the field then have the reception in the barn. However, the weather forecast was calling for rain through the day, so, we decided to have both events in the barn. I admit, I was skeptical at first about it, but the barn had ample room to have the aisle, tables, the bar and cocktail area, music, the wedding party, and chairs for the immediate family to sit up front, plus some! My mother decided to rent out the guest house directly in front of the barn for us girls to stay at the night before the wedding, for the guys to meet and get ready at, and for Tyler and I to come back to after the final send off. That was a great idea! The girls and I had breakfast in the kitchen of the barn the morning of, finished the little details, and headed to the upstairs area of the barn (the game room) and got ready up there. It w...

  • We had THE BEST wedding here. The views were absolutely incredible and the setting of the pavilion was just beautiful. We did have an incident where table cloths were left off of our order but one phone call and they were brought to us fairly quickly!

  • I got married at Lydia November 2, 2019, and it was absolutely georgeous. We rented the Pavillion and some cabins for the whole weekend. It was perfect. Lydia is very go with the flow, it was amazing because i could put my own little stamp on it. Best decision of my whole wedding was renting this place. Can not go wrong.

  • This was the perfect spot for our wedding. We got married in the field, and had cocktail hour and the rest of the reception in the barn. It started raining at the beginning of cocktail hour, but it didn't come inside the barn even with all of the garage doors open. We were able to decorate however we wanted, but honestly, the mountains and the lights were so beautiful, we didn't do much. Much more affordable than other similar venues, and the staff answered all of our questions in a timely manner.

  • We LOVED Lydia Mountain! It was the perfect venue for us and our guests. We loved the freedom and flexibility to make the day anything what we wanted it to be. The setting was gorgeous and we took advantage of all the beautiful spots at Lydia Mountain! Lydia has a lot of beautiful cabins with hot tubs that our guests loved! All of our guests kept raving about how nice the cabins are and how beautiful our wedding site was at the barn. There were horses right next to our venue that we had some beautiful pictures with and children loved to feed. They had a lot of add ons that we could use and some great suggestions of vendors, but allowed us to pick who ever we wanted. We had an amazing weekend and I am so glad we chose to get married at Lydia Mountain. It was a weekend we will never forget and we look forward to coming back.

  • Lydia Mountain Pavilion was the most beautiful venue for an amazing budget price!!!! The choice to have the Pavilion for your use from Friday to Sunday at 11 am was so convenient. My daughter had a Cookout for rehearsal dinner on Friday September 9, 2016. You can come early Friday morning and decorate!!!!! If you have forgotten anything, you have time to get it and finish up the last final touches. The Pavilion is not air conditioned, the kitchen is......once you put the sides of the building up, you get a great breeze, with the ceiling fans. The view for pictures is AMAZING!!!!!! We had games outside, cornhole, etc and a little photo booth. Everything was perfect. The one major thing I would suggest is if you rent the Pavilion and want to stay in one of the cabins that are close to the Pavilion, so you and your guests and wedding party can walk home that evening, MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS AT THE TIME YOU RESERVE THE PAVILION, THEY GO FAST!

  • I recently had my wedding at lydia mountain last weekend in the pavilion. As a bride I can say that this venue is beautiful and allowed me to create my perfect DIY alacarte wedding with the food and drink servings and decor of my choice. That was the best part. Be advised though that it really is a do it yourself and staff here does not really help you with anything unless you pay them an hourly rate to send helpers to do so. The coordinator Tina was overall very helpful although check for honesty when you book because I was shown and advertised that all the cabins within walking distance of the pavilion were able to be utilized for family and friends and getting ready. I booked this venue a year in advance and immediately asked for a hold on all cabins within walking distance to the venue and was told they were already booked. They had rented them all out to the bride Using the barn for her wedding and falsely advertised I could have them and they were available when they were not. I... Read more

  • Lydia's Barn is a simple, but beautiful venue with stellar views of the mountains! The staff is easygoing and pretty hands-off, which is great if you are looking to be independent with your wedding set-up. We liked being able to use all of our own vendors, and enjoyed the flexibility of the space itself. We would recommend Lydia's Barn to any of our friends looking for a scenic wedding venue that doesn't break the bank.

  • Great venue with caveats::: The venue was perfect for our rustic mountain wedding, even on a cooler, rainy, September day. We didn't get to use the overlook which provides a GORGEOUS view of the mountains but our wedding fit comfortably in the pavilion. Highlights- great for do it yourself, free running, on a tight budget couples. They also have cabins walking distance to the ceremony site and reception site. Downsides- if you want ANY help prior to your wedding, forget it. Getting emails back with helpful responses is like pulling teeth. They DO NOT ADVERTISE a pet fee in the cabins. The cabins are a little pricey. So when I say hands off... I mean it to the extreme. But at least our wedding LOOKED beautiful and we were able to have the vendors we wanted.

  • I had my wedding and rehersal dinenr at Lydia's Mountain Pavillion last Friday June 2 and Saturday June 3rd. The view is absolutely amazing and everyone did truely enjoy their stay. Tina was very responsive, but I wish there was a more automated process for booking cabins. Also, my Aunt and Uncle and Cousins rented the Vineyard House, and it was advertized with a hot tub, but the hot tub was out of order. They were truely looking forward to that. When my Aunt called, the person who answered told her that writing a review will not be helpful, and there's no way they would get any nights comped or any of their money back. So that was a disapointment. Also, our contract stated that we needed to have the pavillion and site cleaned up fully by Sunday June 4th at 11AM, however while we were cleaning up, one of the staff members rudely approached my new husband and told him that we had to be out by 10AM. I also asked one of the workers on site to remove a branch from the roof ... Read more

    We wanted to respond that we were able to compensate the guests for the hot tub issue at one of the private owned cabins. Also, we had another group coming in on Sunday morning and the 11 am check out is only if no one is coming in for another function. Staff tried to be on hand to help with this process. We appreciate every guest and bride at Lydia Mountain!

  • We had our wedding here last weekend.. and it was so magical. The venue is beautiful- we decorated it minimally with flowers and candles, but it did not need much. The mountain views were perfect. We were married right at dusk and the lighting was incredible with the sun just beginning to set behind us. We rented the pavilion for two days so we didn't have to clean the night of the wedding AND we had a family brunch in the venue the next morning. It was a great way to spend time with family that we were barely able to see during all of the beautiful chaos of the wedding. The night before the wedding, a wind storm ripped through the area (Hurricane Matthew) and that morning the venue had no power and the pergola we were supposed to be married under was knocked over. Luckily, the kitchen runs on gas, so even if the power had not come back on, the catering crew would have been able to cook the food anyway! The Lydia Mountain crew was so helpful- they kept us informed about the power outa... Read more

  • I found the staff to be very unprofessional and unresponsive. I competed the request for more information on their website, and did not receive anything back. I followed up with a call to the property manager, Tina, and could tell my call was an inconvenience to her. And she continued to say that the prefers to communicate via text-absolutely unprofessional. We looked past these issues at the beginning and decided to still tour the venue. BIG MISTAKE! A worker showed up smoking a cigarette and wasn't able to answer most of our questions. I would not recommend this venue to anyone.

    We are happy to respond via email, telephone, social media or any other form of communication. All are equally agreeable with us in the fast pace world that we all live in these days. We do respond to every caller and inquiry within twenty four hours. We don't mind last minute requests for tours as all staff lives close by. Our website and our many happy brides can certainly certify our desire to create a lovely rustic chic wedding that can be remembered for years to come! All the best in your search for the perfect fit for your special day - thanks, Tina - Lydia Mtn MGR
