The Lily Barn is a 100 acre farm that makes the perfect rustic wedding venue, in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. We are located just 5 minutes from the Cades Cove entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, 30 minutes from Gatlinburg and 25 to Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. Our 130 year old cantilever barn sits among a 3-acre perennial garden. In addition to the cantilever barn, houses and outdoor garden gifts, there is an evergreen maze for children of all ages, a pond, and beautiful Day Lilies and native plants in bloom. Our ceremonies are held at our tin roofed outdoor gazebo, which sits just in front of a large pond filled with water plants.

The Lily Barn Event Venue


Tucked away from the world, this solid timber frame structure overlooks a 3 acre perennial garden and makes a great venue for an outdoor wedding reception or a party! It seats 138 and the rest of the guests spill out onto the garden mezzanine. There’s something magical about the diamonds of tiny lights in the ceiling and the music in the air and having a Smoky Mountain Reception! Our convenient guest lodging is just up the mountain for the honeymoon night!


The gazebo, located in front of our pond and flanked by thousands of day lilies, provides the perfect setting for your vows. Taupe chairs are set in a shallow arch so that all may hear and see your wedding ceremony and wedding vows exchanged. And what better than being in the Smokies.

Bridal Dressing Suite

You and your bridesmaids can enjoy our 140 year old air conditioned cantilever barn with refreshments, maybe even a champagne toast before the wedding. It provides the perfect dressing area, in that it is entirely private, stress free and has plenty of couches for chilling and conversation prior to the wedding.

Our perennial garden provides a great sanctuary for your Smoky Mountain Wedding. With multiple opportunities for photo shoots, bad wedding pictures are a thing of the past. Enjoy pictures of our lovely perennial gardens with family and friends!

Grooms Cabin 

Relax and get ready for the big day in our new grooms cabin! This provides a air conditioned space for the men to get ready and hang out during the preparation for the wedding tucked into the side of the smoky mountains.
