  • The day was meant to be magical and wonderful and all the things dreams are made of, and IT WAS!! The professionalism and "can do" attitude of the McDowall Acres staff was top notch. They were extremely supportive and said on more than on occasion when we were trying to make decisions about the decor, "let's do our best to create the bride's vision", and they set out to do just that. They were hard working, and were problem solvers! When the caterer forgot to send serving spoons with the buffet meal, Elizabeth disappeared for a few minutes and then voila! magically appeared with a half dozen serving spoons. There were several little bumps in the road that were barely noticeable because of their good help. Even down to not having enough greenery to add the the backs of the chairs - Lucy hopped on the golf cart and went foraging around the farm and brought back the perfect greenery solution. You just can't go wrong when you have a team like that making your special day happen!

  • Absolutely amazing venue and vendors! We booked them in December 2019, and we knew right away this was the perfect vendor for us! Jim and Elizabeth were so kind, warm, and welcoming! They really helped us through the covid lock down and happily soothed my frayed nerves during the whole process. Day of rehearsal came and they were very hands on and helped us with the optics of the barn to make sure that it was picture perfect. We had a crazy wedding day with a bridesmaid running late and am accident on the highway leading to many of our guests getting delayed. I cannot thank them enough for being so phenomenal and kind. My husband and I joked that it's almost a shame that we can only get married once, otherwise we'd pick them every time!

  • McDowall made my wedding just perfect! They were a pleasure to work with, very helpful with vendors and just really made us feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process! We made plans for an outdoor ceremony and struggled with the rain the day of! I never felt uncomfortable or not important! A+++++++ Rating! You won't be disappointed!

  • We had the pleasure of having our wedding hosted by McDowall Acres and everything was phenomenal! I fell in love with the venue and knew it was the one the moment my maid of honor and I stepped out of our car the first time we checked it out. There was no hesitation! Elizabeth, Lucy and the whole team went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and everything went as smoothly as it could. They are so kind hearted and welcoming! I would recommend anyone to have their wedding with them. Thank you all so much for the wonderful memories!

  • We held our wedding at McDowall Acres the last week of October 2019 and it was breathtaking!! There are so many beautiful sights to hold the ceremony. Everywhere you look, your breath would be taken away due to the natural beauty that is there! Then you go into the barn and it feels like a fairytale! Just when you think the views are amazing, the owners are even better!!! Elizabeth is one of the most genuine and kind people you will ever cross paths with. She made planning a wedding out of state easy and breezy! She helped me to not stress the day of the wedding and made sure everything was perfect. I cannot stress enough how wonderful our experience was at McDowall Acres. Thank you for making my dreams come true!!!!

  • Elizabeth and Lucy, the owners, are extremely accommodating and kind. If you want to feel like a bridal princess, they will make sure that happens from the first moment you visit. I've needed to meet their multiple times to take more pictures, show my florist, show my fiance, etc. and the wedding is still a few months away, but they have been helpful in showing me and my crew every single time. They have been prompt and basically make you feel like you're their number one priority. I know that is something that many other brides do not get to experience, so I'm very greatly. Oh and the venue itself is an absolute DREAM. The mountains in the background, the horses (adorably named Cornbread and Buttermilk) the pristine pond photo opp, and the clean, modern barn that seems to have been created from the barn wedding dreams I've had all my life. Looking inside the barn form the outside you can see the string lights all the way down, creating such a romantic atmosphere. One of my favorite pa... Read more

  • I cannot sing the praises of Lucy and Elizabeth (and the whole family) enough!! They were there every step of the way making sure my wedding was everything I could dream of! They went above and beyond! McDowell Acres is the most beautiful place to get married and celebrate with your close friends and family! I wish words were sufficient to thank the whole family for sharing their farm with us and making the day so amazing. Not only did I get a husband on 9/21/19 but I also gained some pretty amazing friends from McDowell Acres! ❤🥰 Pictures Posted: by Billie Daniel w/ Shutter Girls Photography in Blairsville, Ga

  • What an amazing experience at McDowall Acres! Weather forced us to find an indoor space for a wedding just a few days before the event. Elizabeth and Lucy could not have been any more helpful. A quick walk-through the day before the wedding and we had a plan! They were agreeable to all of our wishes and even had their own special touches that put the cherry on top! The barn looked wonderful and the views were stunning. As pretty and functional as the facility is, I cannot say enough good things about Elizabeth and Lucy and their families. They pitched in with wonderful attitudes and made sure everything was perfect! I have worked with many different venues and can say that this was by far the best experience. McDowall Acres truly wants each event to be special.

  • My wedding was April 27th,2019 and Elizabeth and Lucy was just amazing they were very responsive on answering phone calls they tried to help in any way they could and the day of the wedding they helped with everything. Decorating and anything we needed. I can’t thank Mcdowall Acres enough for all the help. Mcdowall Acres is a beautiful venue I would recommend it to any couple getting married they view is gorgeous.

  • McDowall Acres is an extraordinarily beautiful venue run by an extraordinary family! I chose McDowall without ever seeing it in person, because I live over 7 hours away. The minute we turned onto the property, I knew that it was meant to be. I can’t adequately describe the beauty. The family immediately made us feel as if we had been friends for years. They were so welcoming and went above and beyond to provide us with an absolute fairytale. They were all a true Godsend. Any bride looking for an unforgettable wedding experience in every way, should put this venue at the top of the list. I will never forget this beautiful place or the beautiful family behind it all!
