The northeastern region of the United States is home to some of the most picturesque settings, boasting miles upon miles of lush countryside and rolling hills. For couples in search of a wedding location that combines natural beauty with the elegance and grandeur of a stately home, Linwood Estate is an absolute gem, situated on more than 300 private acres of the Great Appalachian Valley.
Upon nearing the entrance to Linwood Estate, couples and their guests will be greeted by uninterrupted roads, views of the Appalachian Mountain range, and acres of untouched farmland. The property itself is serves as an idyllic canvas for weddings year-round. In the spring and summer, the scent of fresh grass and delicate flowers waft through the air; autumn is filled with the vibrant colors of changing leaves; and in the winter, the trees are topped with snow while crackling fireplaces burn indoors.

As an iconic 19th century mansion featuring white columns and a stone exterior, Linwood Estate is rich in historic charm and has several event spaces to transition between throughout the wedding day. The Blue Mountain Terrace is an elegant location outside the mansion, where an intimate ceremony or cocktail hour may be held. From the terrace, a stone path leads to the Appalachian Ballroom – a barn-inspired space with chandeliers and a built-in bar. To the left of the mansion, the North Lawn is a vast grassy area, which also lends itself as an airy spot for outdoor ceremonies or a private first look photo session.
For outdoor celebrations, the expansive grounds of Linwood Estate are the perfect place for a glamorous tented celebration and various lounge areas. Think plush sofas arranged on the lawn, custom bar setups, and a large dance floor either inside the tent or under the stars. To make Great Appalachian Valley weddings even more memorable, the estate offers delectable cuisine from their exclusive and internationally recognized caterer, The JDK Group.
Once the wedding festivities have ended, Linwood Estate transforms back into a peaceful and romantic sanctuary, where newlyweds and their guests can rest in the comfort of the property’s stunning guest rooms.
