Wedding

We had a wonderful visit to Memory Mountain! The property was beautiful, the accommodations were nice, Steve Powell gave an excellent tour of his private barn, and Lobo, the wolf, was a huge hit! We had a very special, joyful, and memorable wedding!

A True Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family consisting of myself, wife, daughter (9) and son (7) stayed at the Hummingbird Lodge July 1-23, 2016. It was a wonderful experience! We live in South Florida and were looking to get away from the hustle and bustle city life brings. My wife was familiar with the area and looked online for cabin rentals. Luckily, she came across Memory Mountain at Wolf Laurel. The cabin was spacious and clean. It was fully stocked with the basic necessities. We utilized all that the cabin and mountain had to offer. We took advantage of our many "cabin days." There were numerous ponds that we fished in almost everyday. Many nights were spent around the fire pit making s'mores. There were many trails, creeks and structures that were explored. Each time we took a day trip, we would look forward to getting "home." My wife did have to work from the cabin and a couple of issues that came up were handled promptly by Steve and his team. It truly felt like a vacation and would highly recommend it to families like ours.

Phenomenal Setting for a Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I joined spent a long weekend at Hummingbird Lodge as her family took over Memory Mountain for a family wedding. The setting is outstanding and each lodge catered incredibly well to our group. The lodge itself is beautifully finished with a large, good quality kitchen (it was comfortably used for cooking for the rehearsal dinner) and the layout over three floors made it easy for 4 separate family groups (2 couples, two sisters and adult daughter and a single) to cohabit over 4 days without any issue. Beds are comfortable, but having travelled for 20 hours, it was a little frustrating to find we were putting our own sheets on the bed... but this is the only complaint I could possibly have. Steve was incredibly friendly and as so many others will comment, the addition of Lobo the wolf walking between the lodges and bonding happily with the family dogs was a unique touch.

Great place to stay and an even better wedding venue!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently got married on the property and everything was perfect. We rented several of the cabins for family to stay in and across the board there were no complaints. Everyone enjoyed the secluded atmosphere and it allowed for an overall relaxing weekend (as relaxing as a wedding can be). We loved the stay and will more than likely be returning for family reunions.
