Twickenham House, Estate and Hall, 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 or event activities. Relax and enjoy family and friends or experience great bonding as you gather together for a truly memorable time.

Twickenham is a doable destination wedding/event. 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.

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.

                                                                  Thank you so much Twinkenham our wedding & week stay on the property was very surreal, we did not want to leave. The staff was very helpful in our planning process since our wedding was a destination coming from Florida. The house & estate grounds where perfectly manicured and maintained. We had a small wedding with 60 guest the kitchen was perfect for the chefs we had flown in!

                                                                  We are defiantly planning on a return vacation!! The most picture perfect setting for groups families & weddings!!

                                                                  Absolutely Amazing!

                                                                  From the moment that we arrived, everything seemed like it came out of a fairy tale. The buildings were clean and orderly and ready for our use, there were some minor maintenance issues; however they were quickly addressed. The staff was friendly and helpful when needed. The day of the wedding the staff all pitched in to be sure that everything went smoothly, including accommodating several last minute changes. The property was gorgeous and everything we had hoped for, we could not have asked for a better wedding and accompanying weekend. Thanks again for everything, and making our weekend so memorable and special!


                                                                  Perfect venue for our wedding. Gave 4 stars because WiFi unavailable. Even though the WiFi was out for the weekend, it allowed our families to "disconnect" and focus on communicating with each other!

The grounds were impeccable, reception hall was beautiful, and the main house and cottage amazing. Our guests had a wonderful time. I recommend this venue.

                                                                  katherine l.

                                                                  This venue is unbelievably beautiful. We love how secluded it is, making guest feel like they are away in their own little world. The homes where both beautifully decorated and well equipped to handle all of our needs. Having multiple, large, well equipped kitchens was a huge plus for our group! We loved having everything there in one location. Our guest thoroughly enjoyed all the different features Twickenham has to offer. From short hikes to take in the views, to the media room, and the play room, there was plenty to keep everyone busy.The staff was very thorough and helped us make our stay and our wedding perfect. We cannot thank Jocelyn enough for all of her help. You will not be disappointed with this beautiful home tucked neatly away in the NC mountains!

                                                                  Wedding in a Cloud!

                                                                  Caitlin T.

                                                                  The venue was absolutely gorgeous and we had a wonderful weekend, despite some sub-optimal weather on our wedding day. There were a lot of staffing and rule changes during our planning process but after some initial bumps the staff handled everything very well. The event manager in particular was extremely helpful and supportive, and even offered to be our day-of coordinator (which she did splendidly)! The staff provided by the venue were fantastic and a pleasure to work with. It was an unforgettable day and I can assure you that no matter what the weather conditions are you will have a gorgeous wedding here!

                                                                  The houses were very well kept, and the only issue we had was the water shutting off but the staff was very responsive in helping us. The kids adored the playroom, and the grown-ups loved the whole house! The massage chair was a definite life-saver the day after the wedding. I had a great time and didn't hear any complaints from my guests so all-in-all I highly recommend!
