Discover Sleepy Hollow Wedding & Event Venue

A Historic Homestead with Modern Amenities

Front porch of Asheville wedding venue Sleepy Hollow Inn

Nestled in the mountains of WNC and the best of the award winning Asheville wedding venues, Sleepy Hollow Inn and Event Center is a beautiful private inn, convenient to Asheville and Black Mountain, just off I-40 in Swannanoa, NC.  Situated on over 5 acres of wonderfully landscaped grounds, including a pond, gazebo and bridge, our historic Southern homestead is the ideal choice of Asheville wedding venues or other important events!

The historic charm of Sleepy Hollow is evident as soon as you step foot on our grounds. Our charming two story main house was built in the early 1900’s and has been lovingly restored to its original splendor.

With over 7,500 square feet of living space, 3 two-bedroom suites, five guest rooms, and a private carriage house, the main house has plenty of onsite lodging for you and guests.

From a beautiful bridal suite to an elegant bar area, you and your guests will feel at home at Sleepy Hollow. You will constantly be in awe as you turn every corner in the main house. With a beautiful oak staircase, large chandeliers, stone fireplaces, and treasured antiques, you will see that not a single corner of the home has been overlooked in the restoration.

In addition to the main house, a 2,400 square foot event center was added in 2002 to provide the perfect location to host your reception or indoor wedding. Inside the event center, you’ll notice an elegant grand room for up to 140 guests, windows lining North and South facade, a beautiful stone fireplace for a warm ambiance and a modern bar area.

For brides wanting outdoor wedding sites, our gazebo or bridge with a water fountain backdrop offer the perfect solution.

The gazebo is nestled next to our picturesque pond which boasts a lovely bridge and native landscaping that blooms a year round brilliance of flowers. The bridge area is nestled between the cherry blossom and large willow tree.

Tucked away on the edge of our property sits the Carriage House, available as additional onsite lodging or the perfect solution for honeymooners. Inside the Carriage House is another fireplace, heart-shaped tub and convenient kitchen and dining area.

Your guests will experience a wedding to remember in the perfect setting near one of the top rated cities in America – Asheville, NC.

Thank you so very much for everything. Our wedding was more than we could have expected. Thank you for making it so stress-free and relaxing! It was the most perfect day and we are forever grateful. Danrae, our pictures were beautiful and turned out great! We will be recommending Sleepy Hollow to other brides and grooms! I wanted to write a testimony because everything was more than I could have imagined. May your days be wonderful!

Our wedding was fabulous.  It’s been 8 whole months and we still haven’t come up with a thing that could have been any more perfect about our day.  You guys took all the pressure and stress off of us and made it the most memorable experience.  We were truly able to focus on our wedding, our guests and all the fun.  The food was excellent, DJ was so much better than I have seen at other weddings, the staff was friendly and took care of things I had never even thought about to make this so special.  We will never forget the experience we had, and will never forget the appreciation we have for you guys for making it wonderful!!

Leslie and Randall Tighe

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful Inn to celebrate the start of our new life together! We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting, stress-free planning, or supportive staff. We will cherish the memory of our wedding day for the rest of our lives and we know Sleepy Hollow is a huge reason we can look back with such happiness. Our wedding was amazing, your hard work made planning fun and the pictures are wonderful. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

Mr. and Mrs. Paul J. McHale

We were very pleased with how the wedding turned out. All of our guests remarked on how nice things were, and you met or exceeded all of our expectations. We appreciate all of your assistance. We were very glad that we chose Sleepy Hollow for our wedding. Hopefully, we will make it back sometime in the future.
