See us on Wedding Wire:

http://www.weddingwire.com/biz/twickenham-house-boone/444bc5af031a6f00.html

The most breathtaking estate in the high country, nestled at 4600', offers that rare assemblage of a true private sanctuary. Just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the estate has over 400 acres of park-like grounds, threaded by rushing water, ponds, and abundant wildlife. A beautifully manicured lawn surrounds Twickenham House with spectacular mountain views for a ceremony site or receptions.

The charming Old English Manor boasts more than 11,000 square feet of exquisitely finished living space designed for entertaining. Just a step away is a spacious guest cottage. Together, the estate can accommodate over 40 guests comfortable and offers the following amenities: a commercial kitchen; two additional kitchens; a spa with hot tub, steam room, sauna, and indoor endless pool; fitness facility; library with billiards; movie theatre and more. The guesthouse has a game room with Ping-Pong, foosball and air hockey.

Twickenham, located on Phoenix Mountain, overlooks the historic village of Jefferson, NC, among the famed Blue Ridge Mountains. Phoenix Mountain is also known as 'the Rocky Mountain of the East' due to its 1.6-mile cliff face. Phoenix is covered with a diverse mix of vegetation resulting from its high-altitude, unique topography, snowy winters and temperate summers. It is also boasts spectacular geological formations and a broad array of indigenous wildlife including white tail deer, black bear, wild turkey, pheasant, grouse and three and half miles of native trout streams. In addition, the mountain is home to an unusual high-altitude fen that feeds the trout streams on the property.

Among the fauna are numerous wild orchids and the prized Morel mushrooms. For years botanists have studied the creeping aven, a rare plant that was prevalent during the Ice Age and now only exists on the cliffs of Phoenix Mountain and Europe.

The grounds are great for walking, hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, fishing in the stocked pond or for native trout in the streams. There are 50-mile long-range views from the terrace with fireplace built into the cliffs. Stunning sunsets and sunrises await you.

The estate is available for four or more days, allowing time to enjoy your guests and truly embrace every moment of your wedding activities. Relax and enjoy family and friends or experience great bonding as you gather together for a truly memorable week.

Twickenham is a doable destination wedding. Guests will gather at the estate for the rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception, even a send off breakfast. The grounds boast many different wedding sites.

Parking is available for 100 automobiles to accommodate larger weddings and events.

The surrounding area offers many cultural and recreational experiences. Nearby villages of Jefferson, Glendale Springs, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk represent the historic center of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Mount Jefferson, Mount Rogers, the River (designated National Heritage River by President Clinton) and New River State Park are additional nearby natural attractions.

Though worlds away from traffic and city congestion, this legendary estate is conveniently sited within 3 miles of Ashe County Regional Airport and villages of Jefferson and West Jefferson, less than 10 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway, 20 miles from Boone and just 119 miles from Charlotte.

Twickenham is also easily accessible by plane, as it is located three miles from Ashe County Airport, 5000' runway, capable of landing most private jets including Falcon 50's, Beech jets, Citations and Hawkers.

VERY WARM AND INVITING

  • 5 of 5
This property has it all- if you like to cozy up to a warm fire and stay inside, you have all you need and plenty to do. Our kids loved the movie theater, indoor pool and outdoor jacuzzi. If you love the outdoors, there are so many places to hike and the VIEWS! Wow, it was amazing to look out over 3 different counties! Be ready to get your exercise- it is at the top of a mountain- hikers wear your hiking boots! We have 5 kids ages 3-15 and everyone had a wonderful time!

40TH BIRTHDAY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I hosted a birthday party for my husband's 40th birthday with 8 families, including children and it was the most perfect location! There was something for everyone to do, and the kids loved playing outside on the lawn, watching movies in the theater, playing in the playroom. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed to cook for our group! The property was very well maintained, with everything we needed and the property managers couldn't have been more helpful to assist us with what we needed for the long weekend!

YOUNG MOMS RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place to stay! We take a group of young moms to Twickenham each year and it is peaceful, relaxing and restful. The bedrooms are large and beautifully decorated with lovely bathrooms. (I love the towel warmers.)

This home would be a spectacular place to have a wedding, women's retreat, or family reunion. There is something here for everyone. Don't forget to bring comfortable shoes so you can walk around the property as the views are breathtaking.

I have also been at Twickenham during the holidays and the Christmas decorations are stunning. I highly recommend this home for your next vacation stay.

PHENOMENAL VENUE AND COMMUNICATION

  • 5 of 5
My fiance and I considered Twickenham for our wedding in 2014, and although we decided to go in a different direction, I couldn't say enough great things about the venue and its managers. The communication was timely and thorough, and they were very flexible and understanding when we decided on a different place. Our visit to Twickenham was perfect - we arrived as the house was being prepared for visitors, and they were lighting fires in fireplaces and arranging fresh flowers to make their arrival perfect. A local wedding planner walked us through the house and around the grounds to explain how folks have used the venue for events in the past which was extremely helpful. She even recommended a great place for lunch! You will not be disappointed with this house!!!
