Fall Wedding Destination

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing wedding venue and very comfortable for our families. The Powell family (owners) took care of every request for our wedding preparations and made sure we felt right at home. I highly recommend for a family gathering or a county retreat.

Owner's Response: Make no mistake the reviews we get are because the people that come to Memory Mounain are very special. We all work together to solve issues. Every place you go will have things that go wrong or break like the lights want work or a bulb is burned out. Well what make us different is we have the right attitude. We are here to make people have good Memories. We are here to work for you. We know who pays us its you. The big advantage with the very kind people that visit Memory Mountain is they help us. They are here to have a great visit and they help us. Thank to you for another 5 star review. Thanks very much.

Perfect weekend wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We seriously had the best weekend ever! We got married on the beautful dock on Saturday, August 12th, 2017. Steven the son touched up the red dock before we got there. Our friends and family were able to fit in both cabins we rented and they loved it. Wedding or no wedding the location is beautiful and so peaceful. This place is a gem and we will be back soon, I hope! Thank you for helping make this the best weekend of our lives!!

Best. Weekend. Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Lakeside for our wedding weekend and had all our friends stay in Lakeside. Besides being absolutely beautiful, the cabinets are stocked with towels, dishes, silverware, etc, everything you'd need to stay. Steve and his family are literally the nicest people I've ever met and made sure our stay was better than we even imagined it. I can never say enough good things about Memory Mtn and the Powells. Stay here even if you're not planning a wedding!

Best Wedding Ever!

  • 5 of 5

My wishes and I were married here and we had the reception here. Steve, the owner is a wonderful person and know how to treat his guests. It is on a truly amazing property, with abundant views. The cabin has a very impressive living room, with a big fireplace and plenty of seating. Plenty of beds, and a two-level porch to host events at. We will always remember the weekend we stayed and were married at this cabin!

My dream wedding venue.

  • 5 of 5

This is where I held my wedding ceremony and reception. It's breathtaking beauty will be a talking point of my friends and family for many years to come. Aside from that, it's just an amazing place to get away from it all. The perfect log cabin experience.
