Idyllic, riverfront estate with two homes, patio, lush grounds, & English garden

Sprawling boulders, lit up at night, a fire pit, a shady seating area next to a rushing creek, an English garden, a convivial fire pit, and a broad, grassy lawn - you’ve found the ideal High Country getaway at the elegant Crab Orchard Country Estate, tucked into the trees down a short gravel road. Made up of two separate homes, this idyllic property is set onto 2.5 lush acres and offers the ideal spot for small weddings and events. If, rather, you’re in the area for an event, this property puts you within walking distance of several popular wedding venues. When you want to venture a bit further, you’ll also find hiking trails, historic Valle Crucis, the original Mast General Store and Annex, Valle Crucis Park, Banner Elk Winery, and more nearby.

At the Manor House, you’ll find a gorgeous, shady stone patio, sure to become a favorite gathering place for the whole group. A wood-burning, outdoor fireplace will keep everyone cozy, and you can dine alfresco at the adjacent patio table at the end of the day. Inside, you’ll find elegant touches such as coffered and vaulted ceilings, textured walls, extensive stone and tile work, exposed beams, three more fireplaces, slate floors, and radiant floor heat. Two dedicated office spaces make remote work a breeze, and the luxe furnishings throughout the home make it easy to snuggle in with a good book. The chef’s kitchen offers a full suite of appliances, including a wine fridge, and tons of gleaming countertops. Two dining areas offer plentiful mealtime seating. Entertainment options include free WiFi, a sound dock for music, and three streaming-capable TVs. Two bedrooms, including a primary bedroom with a spa-like en suite bathroom offer sanctuary at the end of the day.

At the White House, you’ll find a barn-style cottage with rustic charm and comfortable, updated interiors. The open living and dining area welcomes you in, and a well-stocked farmhouse kitchen features a charming tile backsplash and all the appliances. There’s plenty of mealtime seating at the table for four. Upstairs you’ll find the bedroom and bathroom with a newly updated shower so you're not sacrificing the comforts of home. With an idyllic setting for weddings or events - either on-site or off - two homes to spread out in, and that picture-perfect patio, the only question left is how many extra days to book!

Crab Orchard Country Estate is made up of The Manor House and The White House, each of which may be rented separately.
