My husband and I had our wedding here at Timberwolf Creek B&B and stayed in the Black Bear Cabin in the Woods. As soon as we pulled in, we knew it would be perfect. The cabin is cozy and well appointed, and it sits right next to a beautiful, rushing mountain stream. That sound filled the cabin with it's music. Sandee the owner came over and met us, and took us for a tour of the place. We picked out the site of our ceremony, on a mossy bank next to the river. She was wonderful; friendly, funny, and put us right at ease. We woke up the day of our wedding well rested, after sleeping in the comfy bed and listening to the sounds of the stream during the night. A gorgeous breakfast basket was delivered to our cabin, and the food was out of this world. The place is on a rural mountain road, and the morning walk took in the sights of the mountains, farms, animals, and three dogs who tagged along with me for my exercise.
The wedding itself was just as I planned; intimate, sweet, and just the two of us. Sandee officiated, her husband is the photographer, and we felt like we were with family. Sandee created a lovely bouquet for me and a boutiniere for my husband. They were gorgeous. Sandee does the ceremony as if we were the only couple she's ever married, and made it a very personal experience for us. She helped me write the vows prior to the wedding, so the words we spoke were very meaningful. I've been married before, and the preacher was very impersonal and matter of fact. Sandee made it a joyful experience for us. We then enjoyed a beautiful cake and champagne, and they toasted us. Next came the pictures, and they take as many as you want in various sites around the property. There are many pretty sites to choose from. They even give you the disk so that you can make as many duplicates as you want. Timberwolf Creek has thought of everything you could possibly need in the cabin, including paper towels, washer dryer with laundry detergent and dryer sheets, bubble bath, plenty of towels, etc. There is also a book that is chock full of things to do, places to eat, shop, hike, and so on. Very well done and comprehensive. I also arranged a massage prior to the wedding, and it was all arranged to my preference. It was the best massage I've ever had. Beth the masseuse was simply gifted and I left feeling energized and relaxed. If you're looking for a site to have a wedding, whether a private ceremony, elopement or family wedding, this is the place. My wedding was everything I wanted and more, and can't wait to go back and enjoy this place again. Hopefully I will also get to visit with Sandee again, and share a glass of wine with her on the deck overlooking the stream, to thank her for everything. The only thing I did wrong was not have my honeymoon here! But we will return, hopefully many times in the coming years.
