“Our Fairytale Wedding.” • “There are some experiences that have to be witnessed & felt that words simply cannot describe. From Danielle to Velva, their desire was for you to experience stress free perfection as if it was their own personal wedding with family. No detail was left undone, every person uniquely cared for as family. There is a common passion found across the entire staff. They operate as a well practiced symphony in unison supporting each other. Questions were answered before they were posed… the venue allowed for a wide range from linen table cloth dining, to s’mores and fire pit relaxation. The appointments throughout each guest’s room whisked you away from the busyness of the outside world & prompted you to exhale. As the gourmet food aromas wafted throughout the inn, your senses began to dance wondering what delectable Four Star creation would be served at the next meal. Our small intimate wedding of 30+ family & friends were treated to a magical weekend that is still being relived in conversation & reflection. Southern charm infused with a caregiver’s heart truly made this a fairytale!” ~ R&D
“Attended my son’s wedding there as a destination wedding.” • “Everything went perfectly. Danielle is the ideal Wedding Coordinator and is one of the friendliest and happiest people I have met. Never saw me without asking if there was anything I needed. Room was great if you like rustic, spotlessly cleaned daily, and had a great view. Can’t say enough about the incredible service everyone gave us. One-of-a-kind retreat. Highly recommend!” ~ Charles K
“All I can say is ‘just GO’! It’s amazing!” • We chose Mast Farm Inn as the venue for our wedding day. We could not have been more satisfied with everything from start to finish. We spent one lovely week in the Gazebo Cottage….everything was taken care of, all we had to do was show up! Danielle, the innkeeper, wedding coordinator and chef was amazing and Lorraine, her assistant helped make sure we felt comfortable and at home. If you are looking for a wedding venue, a vacation, or just a weekend get-a-way GO! You will not regret it. The Mast Farm Inn provides a relaxing, homey, friendly place to get away from everything. We will go back for years to come!” ~ AimeeRoscoe
“Can’t Wait For Our Wedding Here!” • “My fiancée and I traveled to Mast Farm Inn this weekend to get a feel for the inn and the area, because we are getting married there next spring. We had booked the venue sight unseen since we live in Maryland and cannot get down to North Carolina as easily as we would like; needless to say, we had very high expectations. Mast Farm Inn exceeded every one of them! The staff are friendly and incredibly hospitable. The personal touches in our room and at our meals were so special. I absolutely cannot wait for our family and friends to experience the inn and the surrounding area. There is not a doubt in my mind that this is the ideal spot to get married!” ~ Bailey H
“Elopement and 5 day stay” • “My fiancé and I were looking for a smooth, no stress, beautiful place to elope to… The Mast Farm Inn was PERFECT! First of all, Danielle was SUPER helpful, answering all of my questions and connecting us with an amazing photographer, florist, and officiant. Each vendor allowed us to really customize our ceremony, although it was an elopement it did not lack any of the special details that a large wedding would have. We stayed at the Granary, the Granary allows for you and your spouse to feel more secluded than the other cabins, we did the ceremony behind the cabin looking out onto the rolling hills and a prairie with a horse, donkey, and 2 goats, and it was a great space for each of us to get ready prior to the ceremony. Also, the 5 days of relaxing and exploring the nearby towns was an awesome mini-moon! I loved that we didn’t have cell service in the cabin, no cable but only old movies… it was so romantic! I can’t forget to say that the food was to die for! Our wedding dinner was fantastic and so was every breakfast and meal we had at both The Mast Farm Inn and there sister restaurant right down the road! We will definitely be back…” ~ Sarah V
“Ten Times and Still Counting!” • “It is obvious we like this place since we returned for the tenth time! Why? The Mast Farm Inn is truly an exceptional place to spend time away from it all. Also, their Anniversary Package “The Longer The Better” is a great offer, especially if you have been married for a long time! This time we stayed at the beautiful Elizabeth Gray Vining Room located on the second floor of the Inn. The room was so comfortable and well appointed. The Internet worked perfectly. As previously mentioned, the Innkeeper, Daniele Deschamps Stabler, and her staff have everything just right. We were warmly greeted, with a kind note in our room with sincere gratitude for our return visit. Once again, the breakfasts were exquisite with fresh eggs, grits, fruit, bread and the best bacon I can remember eating! So will we return? Of course; the Mast Farm Inn is a wonderful accommodation for those who love the outdoors or just want to get away from it all.” ~ Budrock
“4th Annual Honeymoon” • “Mast Farm Inn had the most delicious breakfast each morning with coffee delivered to your room. Definitely make dinner reservations as well. Dinner was fresh, unique, local and out of this world. The staff was authentic friendly and happy to work there. They were also more than accommodating and helpful. There is a fun bar area as well. The grounds are historic (I read all of the literature provided and found it very interesting), and beautiful. There is a garden to walk through, a pond to sit by, a river to find and you can porch sit as well. The beds were also fantastically comfy with sheets worth purchasing. My husband and I loved the whole weekend. I would both highly recommend and return to the Mast Farm Inn!” ~ Liz
“Unbelievably perfect B&B experience” • “If you are planning a wedding or any gathering of family and friends you will not discover a more suitable location anywhere. The cheerful professionalism of the staff, uncompromised cleanliness of the accommodations, and breathtaking beauty and serenity of the grounds make Mast Farm Inn a must experience for anyone traveling in the Smokey Mountains area. The dining experience has a draw all its own for incredible cuisine second to none for freshness and flavor. We have so enjoyed relaxing with a glass of champagne on the front porch, exploring the grounds and visiting with the animals. Mast Farm Inn is part of our yearly MUST VISIT list.” ~ Debbie M
“Destination Elopement!” • “We had a very unique and intimate setting provided by the Mast Farm Inn for our destination elopement ceremony, and Innkeeper Danielle Deschamps made sure all the details were handled successfully and succinctly for our special day. The chef’s meal designed for our evening was simply elegant and delicious, and our Hummingbird cake was perfectly moist and super yummy! We shared a bottle of champagne on the front porch rockers, and had a special room that was very well-kept and clean for changing clothes in. I was impressed with the details every where you look, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We had a great time, and loved our moments in Valle Crucis thanks to Danielle and the team at The Mast Farm Inn.” ~ Stacey M
“Wedding at the Mast Farm Inn” • “My husband and I had the pleasure of getting married at the Mast Farm Inn. We could not have picked a better venue. Danielle and all of the MFI staff members pay attention to even the most minute details during your stay at the inn, and we found the same to be true for details on our wedding day. The MFI is breathtaking, especially in the fall, and the food you will have there will knock your socks off. Our wedding guests are still raving about how delicious the food at our wedding was. I could not have been more impressed with the chef and his team.” Lindsay K
“Perfect Elopement” • “We just eloped at the Mast Farm Inn and had an amazing time. We were completely charmed by the historic home and romantic Gazebo cottage where we stayed. The electric fireplace made the room so cozy! The inn took care of everything for our ceremony – all we had to do was make a few choices about cake flavors and menus! The photographer (amazing!), music, flowers, officiant, witnesses, and the rest were all taken care of. And the food – some of the best we have ever eaten! Thanks to the Mast Farm Inn” ~ Patrick and Carrie
“Perfect getaway!” • “We got married at the Mast Farm Inn and not only did we have the perfect wedding, but we had an amazing stay. We were very impressed by the adorable rooms, the fabulous food, service and property in general. Our wedding guests also enjoyed the Mast Farm Inn and especially the delicious breakfast. If you live in a big city and are looking for a getaway with a slower pace, definitely stay in one of their cabins.” ~ NW
“A Hidden Treasure in the Hills of North Carolina” • “We stayed at the Mast Farm Inn in North Carolina as a result of my son and his fiancé picking the place to hold their destination wedding. The thought of driving to North Carolina from Maryland to stay at a lodge and cottages did not initially excite me, but it did not matter as attending my son’s wedding was the real draw. So my expectations were initially not very high, but once we got to the Mast Farm Inn we were totally blown away by the setting, the cottages in the woods we stayed in, the food, the very attentive employees and the entire atmosphere to enjoy the company of all the wedding attendees. The mix of cottages from small rustic unique units to the large wood houses hidden in the trees and their large porches and wood finished interiors were absolutely beautiful. And the food was outstanding. The breakfast was to die for, and the dinner for the wedding and the rehearsal dinner was fantastic. And in particular the homemade ice cream and pie kept drawing me back for extra helpings. I would never have thought about driving to North Carolina for a vacation but after staying here, it is on our list to look at going back. In addition, I would be remiss if I did not point out the organizational skills of the team at Mast Farm Inn in organizing the outdoor wedding, reception, dinner and dancing. It was pure genius. They have an eye for detail, and it really showed in the weekend plans. What a wonderful weekend. If you are looking for a great getaway this is the place.” ~ Harvsupra
“Perfect Wedding Weekend” • “A month ago, my husband and I got married at the Mast Farm Inn. It was a “wedding weekend” with about fifty five guests. Everything went perfectly. I mean, PERFECTLY. We spent about a year planning our nuptials, and worked personally with the phenomenal staff, and went to various meals there (brunch, dinner) over the course of the year. We fell in love with the food and the beauty of the valley, and the people! It became less like a business agreement, and more like working with family. That’s how everything is there… its comfortable and relaxed and beautiful – the ideal atmosphere for an intimate wedding. Everything far exceeded our expectations – the staff was excellent, the food was unbelievable, and the scenery was unbeatable. The whole family was happy there – the toddlers, the adults, and the grandparents. The accommodations are unbelievable, full of historical mountain appeal, but with luxurious upgrades to make everyone comfortable. We could not have picked a better place, and the whole family agreed to make it a regular vacation spot.” ~ Katie H
“Unbelievable gem of relaxation” • “We spent a long weekend at The Mast Farm Inn for my sister’s wedding. We traveled from Maryland with two young boys and the facility exceeded our expectations in every way. Our family slept in the Granary and it was so perfect, we enjoyed the rockers on the back porch while our boys we sleeping at night. The property has so much historical charm yet it has been decorated and updated to include every modern amenity so you aren’t really roughing it as it may appear in the pictures. The sheets were fantastic and the food was outstanding. We just loved it; from the staff,to the baby goats, to the friendly cat, our family did not want to leave and we plan to hold family reunions here in the future.” ~ Cass K
“Outstanding Elopement!” • “My husband and I eloped and were married at The Mast Farm Inn. From start to finish, this is absolutely the way to get married! The venue is beautiful, the staff are professional and courteous, the food is superb and the best part is that ALL OF THE DETAILS WERE HANDLED FOR ME. I just arrived with my dress and my groom and had the most perfect wedding day…EVER. The wedding ceremony was quaint and deeply personal. It was better than I could have imagined. We will be returning in the future for mini-vacation getaways. Highly recommend!” ~ Nicole H
“Amazing stay” • “We recently had an intimate wedding ceremony and reception at the Mast Farm Inn. When choosing a venue, it was very important for my husband and I that the day of the wedding is as stress-free as possible for both us and our family members – the people at the Mast Farm did exactly that and beyond. We and our family members were treated with the utmost warmth and respect from the minute we checked in. I did not have to worry about anything other than spending quality time with my family and walking down the aisle that entire weekend. The food, both for breakfast and for the reception, was some of the best I have ever had – I would especially recommend their homemade ice cream which completely blew my mind. The rooms are amazing as well – my personal favorite part of the lodging is the large claw foot bathtub that they have in every room. I have been in other hotel rooms with air-jet bathtubs but the ones at the Mast Farm are the biggest and deepest I’ve seen. The surroundings of the inn are amazing as well – located in Valle Crucis, the view outside of many windows (especially the Granary) overlooks the hills of the Appalachian mountains. We were there during the Spring so the entire mountain was covered with new green leaves. We have heard nothing but compliments from our family members regarding the inn. More than one of them were convinced that the rooms in the inn must be booked a year out in advance because of the quality of the stay and are planning to come back for their own vacations in the future. My husband and I would definitely come back again for our anniversaries.” ~ MZ
“Our Dream Wedding~ Realized!” • “My husband and I were married at The Mast Farm Inn last Monday; we then spent an additional three days there for our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived everyone felt like family; we felt right at home. The food was delightful. We especially enjoyed the daily breakfast. The vanilla wedding cake with cream cheese frosting was the best we ever tasted, and the drunken fruit poundcake was TRULY addictive! (In fact, we are thinking of ordering several for Christmas gifts this year!) The master bed in the Granary Cabin was the most comfortable we ever slept in. The in-room old timey radio programs were a wonderful touch; we had great fun listening to the radio in front of the fireplace with a bottle of wine. Rebecca, one of the staff, was wonderfully calm during a power outage Sunday night (the mountains suffered unseasonably heavy rains all week; an auto accident nearby caused a two-hour power outage all along Broadstone Rd). Rebecca, however, made everyone in the main house feel safe, calm, and entertained until the lights came back on. Most of all we loved the services of Danielle, who is one of the innkeepers, as well as being our wedding planner. We told her we wanted a simple, old-fashioned, stress free wedding, and that is indeed what she delivered. (Emphasis on the “stress-free”: it was heavenly!) Danielle truly gave us the wedding of our dreams. Highly recommended; in fact, we are planning to go back next year for our 1-year anniversary!” ~ AEL
“Fairy tale wedding” • “My husband and I had never even been to The Mast Farm Inn when we decided to book the venue for our wedding. It simply took a fantastic conversation with the inn owner, Danielle, for us to know that it was exactly where we wanted to have our special day. She was informative, friendly, and most importantly for us, genuinely excited about our nuptials and did not act like we were just another wedding. The following week when we went up there to meet her and take a tour, we were blown away by the hospitality and beauty. Danielle is probably one of the most enthusiastic and sincere people I have ever met and we fell comfortably in to wedding planning. We don’t live in the area so everything was done via email or phone. She was on top of everything and and always there day or night for us. I am not the little girl who dreamed of her wedding. In fact I was scared to death to even go wedding dress shopping, but our wedding day surpassed any sort of fantasy either of us had. We got married in July so the weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding and everything was in bloom. We opted to rent the whole inn so that friends and family could make a weekend out of it. All of the rooms and cabins had individual notes and cookies for the guests. People loved it! There are not enough descriptive words to tell you how spectacular the grounds are. It’s not only a great place to just go and relax but to have that as the backdrop of our wedding is absolutely priceless. We were so lucky to also have a phenomenal set of photographers who captured the beauty of the inn. The day of the wedding I had zero worries. I knew Danielle and the staff had everything covered. Everything went off without a hitch. The ceremony was set over the pond. The reception was held in the wedding square. The food was absolutely fabulous. People are still talking about the food we served. I haven’t mentioned that the Danielle is a phenomenal chef. All of her food is heavenly. If you ever have an opportunity to eat at her restaurant please do it. Everything is fresh and local. My husband is extremely picky and he even adores her food. We did opt to have children at our wedding and since they were all very young Danielle prepared Velveeta for them because what child doesn’t love Velveeta Mac and Cheese. My parents, sister, my son, and I ate dinner in her restaurant the Thursday before our wedding weekend and she went out of the way to provide a kid friendly meal for my picky 9 year old. All in all, we could not have asked for a better place to be married. Everything about The Mast Farm Inn is amazing. And although my experience is wedding related, the inn is not geared strictly to weddings. It is a wonderful place for any type of get away.” ~ SJ
“Wonderful wedding weekend!” • “Wrote this to the innkeeper after out daughter and new son-in-law’s perfect wedding! “I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for making the wedding weekend one we shall never forget. From our arrival Thursday through our departure Sunday we could not ask for better accommodations, service, food, drink and overall hospitality. We felt like you were part of the family! I don’t think there was anything more we could ask for! Even the ring in the pond will be something we can laugh about when we relive the weekend! Have heard nothing but great comments from our guests and all want to know how many recipes will you share? Especially the mushroom, brandy sauce! We loved the Granary and would gladly become permanent residents! Thanks again for a weekend of wonderful memories.” ~ JLM
“The Perfect Wedding Experience” • “The staff at the Mast Farm Inn created the perfect wedding weekend for my husband Bob and our family. Our friends and family filled the rooms in the main house and were treated like family during their stay. Amazing gourmet meals with just the right mix of southern charm… Personal touches in each room, hot coffee outside the door in the morning and the smell of bacon rising up to the upstairs rooms. Danielle, Velva and staff not only created a warm, friendly atmosphere for them at the Inn, but the wedding rehearsal dinner and wedding/reception/dinner were flawless! I didn’t need to check on a single detail because they had everything under control. Danielle and staff were like members of the family by the end of the weekend. I have been visiting Valle Crucis and the Mast Farm Inn for the last 25 years and it is better now than ever. Cheers to Danielle and her family for improving on such an idyllic inn in our beloved NC mountains.” ~Julie G
“Love the Mast Farm Inn!” • “I just had my elopement wedding at the Mast Farm Inn, and stayed in a cabin at the Inn for the night before. I highly recommend this place! We will be back! The staff was very helpful in making my stay, and wedding day perfect and stress free. The attention to detail is adorable…and they give your stay a “personal touch”! The breakfast was to die for!! and my wedding dinner was perfect too! I could not have asked for a more beautiful day!! An extra Thank you to Danielle for making the day so special!” ~ Kristi M
“Mast Farm Inn, You Did It. You made our wedding weekend perfect. The staff was kind and attentive, the food was the best we have ever experienced, the entire weekend went without a problem. Thank you very very much.” ~ D & J
“Hi Danielle: R and I could not have found any other place as special as The Mast Farm Inn to have our Wedding and our Honeymoon. Our wedding was so very intimate and special, we really wish you could have attended. The dinner in our cabin was wonderful and romantic and the very special touches that you and all of the staff of The Mast Farm Inn provided made for a very unforgettable experience. We both loved every minute and intend to return for our Anniversary. Thanks so much for all everyone did to make our special day even more special. God Bless and we will think of you and The Mast Farm Inn with fondest of memories.” ~ E & R B
“After looking at many Bed and Breakfasts online, I kept going back to The Mast Farm Inn. After our recent Wedding and Honeymoon there, I realized why. The Inn Keepers and staff of The Mast Farm Inn are absolutely amazing. We did not have to worry about any detail of our wedding except what to wear. The atmosphere in the Loom House was amazing and perfect for our very private and special ceremony. Even though Danielle was extremely busy in the restaurant, she made sure we had our evening meal on our wedding night in our cabin. Special touches like hot coffee and chocolate left by our door the next morning was so much appreciated. The food is outstanding. These ladies are very talented. I highly recommend The Mast Farm Inn if you want rest, privacy, good food, and to be treated like royalty. We intend to visit on our Anniversary every year. Thanks so much to everyone at The Mast Farm Inn for making our special day even more special.”
“Danielle, Thanks so much for all your help with the wedding. I couldn’t be more pleased with the way everything turned out – you definitely did a wonderful job and J and I had fun working with you as well. The cruise was wonderful – so sad to be back at work. Hope you’re doing well” ~ D
“Whew. I can breath now. Where do I start? The wedding was PERFECT! Nothing else to say. I think every single person commented on what a sweet and warm wedding it was. Even one of the young men came over and told me that it was just perfect. You guys ROCK! I felt like you, Ken and Hollie were just one of the family. You guys handled everything perfectly, no worries for me. How good is that? The biggest thing to everyone was D being brought up in the car. That was just the best! From the rehearsal dinner to the reception… it could not have been better. Please forward on to the florist and Hollie our thanks for such beautiful flowers and food! I would not change one thing about the weekend… Please tell your Mother that we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts. I LOVE that in the Inn coffee baskets are brought to the rooms. How sweet is that?! It is those little touches that help make being there such a memorable experience. I feel like we are part of your family as well. Thank you again for all of your help. Please say hello and give my love to everyone. I will certainly recommend the Mast Farm Inn to others.” ~ KB
“I’m not sure where to begin. The weekend was one that we will never forget! Not only because we were married at the Mast Farm Inn, but that it was perfect! I must say that that is a word I don’t use lightly but when it is true, I must confess. I would not have changed a thing. This was made possible by the Mast Farm Family and their amazing staff. ~ Our room and wedding ceremony site – the historic Loom House was magical. All of family’s rooms – elegant and tastefully decorated. The food- excellent! The grounds – lovely! From the warm breakfast to the catering (Sweet Monkey Catering), and our wedding cake (Stick Boy Bakery) our palettes were satisfied in every way. Planning the wedding was very smooth and Danielle worked with all of our requests without a pause. At the last minute we moved the reception inside the inn to accommodate for the 4inches of snow and the whole Mast Farm family took part in decorating and rearranging. It was perfect! Danielle and her family took every opportunity to go the extra mile for our family and friends to make this a weekend we could never forget. She even decorated our room with petals and candles and took care of our flowers and decorations making sure everything was packed for us with sweet notes. All of this was done with extreme sincerity. We look forward to sharing this special place with friends and family in the future. ~ Sincerely,” ~ L & M
“I have to tell you they are the nicest people you could ever meet. They understand service and cleanliness. There is a main house and several cabins. We toured the main house on arrival and were really impressed by how such an old (National Register) building could be so clean and updated. It was beautiful, the rooms look very comfortable! We stayed in a cabin on the top of the hill, better so that others did not hear my kids screaming when they went into the outdoor Jacuzzi when the Easter snowstorm hit us all! That is what made the whole thing special! There was a wedding happening that weekend, and they were planning on doing everything outside, of course that was no longer going to happen in the Snow, so they moved everything in and accommodated the other guests as well. I travel 110 days per year for business, this is the first time that i write a review, but it was such a special weekend, that other folks deserve theirs as well!” ~ L
“Our Daughter was married at the Mast Farm Inn. ~ We had two months to plan the wedding and no chance to see the Inn before the wedding. We were depending on the Mast Farm to make it happen and work out all the pieces of the event through e-mail and telephone calls prior to the wedding weekend. Danielle Deschamps and her family who own the farm went above and beyond to make every detail perfect. They were willing to accommodate us in every way possible, making changes when necessary. Danielle was a dream to work with, she remained calm and very helpful throughout the entire process and weekend. Danielle handled all the set up, clean up, pick up, and put our minds to ease at every turn. All thirty of our guest raved about the entire weekend. Comments included; warm and welcoming, beautiful place, excellent accommodations, unbelievably delicious food, and a very friendly and helpful staff. It turned out to be the most amazing food (every meal) we have ever eaten. Danielle’s Mom is the breakfast chef and it was the best B&B breakfast we have ever experienced. We really can’t say enough wonderful things about the Mast Farm and Danielle Deschamps. The Mast Farm Inn is a must see destination and if you want a wonderful intimate wedding with ease of mind this is the place. Guest rooms and cabins are beautiful and well appointed. It felt like family. Our family is thrilled we chose to do our daughter’s special wedding at the farm. We are glad we took Danielle’s advice on many of the details that made the wedding unique. We know this will be a wonderful memory for our daughter and son-in-law, forever. ~ A million thanks to Danielle, Sandra, Holly, and the Mast Farm family and staff. Fondly” ~ DG
“The Mast Farm Inn was recommended to me by a colleague, who couldn’t stop raving about how beautiful and charming the Inn was. After visiting last fall, I loved it so much, I’m now planning my wedding there. Danielle has been instrumental in the planning process and attending to every detail, many of which I hadn’t even thought about yet! I hear from several friends how stressful it is to plan a wedding. Yet, I feel completely relaxed, due to working with Danielle.” ~ S.R.
“Growing up within a short driving distance of Boone, I spent a lot of time with my family in the mountains. I have stayed in several local establishments, but nothing like the Mast Farm Inn. When I discovered the Inn, I knew it would be the perfect location for my wedding! Danielle and her family create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, but add a sophisticated charm that makes the experience of staying there feel so unique!” ~ S.
“Every time A. speaks to his parents about the wedding, he talks to them about your dedication and high level of service. I know for him having you makes the entire event less stressful! For me, not only is it less stress, but it’s also someone I can talk to ceaselessly about the wedding and details. I’m’ entirely too detail oriented and having you has made it possible for us to have our dream wedding. Thank you :)” ~ C.J.
“I just wanted to let you know briefly that I did not scratch the surface in regards to Danielle or the Mast Farm Inn. She is one of the owner’s of the Mast Farm Inn in Valle Crucis. I live in Durham, North Carolina, about four hours away. My fiancé and I decided to get married in Blowing Rock and to spend our wedding weekend in your beautiful area. We had our first vacation there together. Danielle knew I lived far away and has dedicated at least an hour a day answering my emails, from frantic ones about who is invited to working every last detail down to getting the napkins just right. She has contacted all of the vendors, set up tastings, and taken me to meet the vendors. I have not had to worry about anything to do with the biggest day of my life because of her. I do not have a mother helping me with this, but I do have Danielle. I greatly hope that you seriously consider her and her Inn for this award. I have never met anyone so willing to work with a client and provide such a professional, friendly, and inviting service.” ~ C.J.
“She truly has gone above and beyond my expectations in assisting me with my wedding.” ~ C.
“My daughter is getting married there in May and we have been working with Danielle to finalize the plans. My daughter is in school finishing up her Masters, working and student teaching all the while trying to help in the planning of her wedding. I have just been overwhelmed with the amount of planning that there is to do… and in an out of town setting! However, Danielle just walked us through the entire process and made it virtually painless. My daughter made one visit to review the grounds and find out some specifics. We made another trip and at that time Danielle had already lined up the baker and caterer so we could taste the food. She also had lined up a meeting with the florist. So in one trip we planned the flowers, ceremony, cake, had ideas for the caterer and was able to plan the rehearsal dinner (an added plus)! She was organized and thorough, exactly what a mother of the bride needs. Danielle was aware of D’s overloaded schedule and Danielle did every thing she could to minimize D’s stress. As mother of the Bride, I am most thankful. Keeping D. calm is a number one priority.”
“I would like to nominate The Mast Farm Inn for their outstanding Customer Service. The wedding and reception have been planned and it is just the first of March, which was D’s goal. My daughter (with her heavy schedule ) and I (work fulltime) could never have accomplished this without the expert help and organization of Danielle.” ~ K.
“Danielle, We thoroughly enjoyed meeting with you and all of our vendors. We are so pleased with everyone. You are such a pleasant person. Hollie, Tina, Gregory and Jason are wonderful. We’re excited about H’s cake. I’ve never had a wedding cake with so many flavors.” ~ L.
“I wanted to thank you for doing so much to help me. I meant it the other day; I could not plan this wedding without you!” ~ C.”
“Danielle, B. and I think you are the bomb! And that you pulled everything off so well. We’d love for you to visit in Hickory. We have both talked about you and hope that you are adjusting well to the change of pace that the NC Mountains offered. We have a guest bedroom if you ever need a break from the daily routine.” ~ M & B
