Castleton Farms, Nothing Less Than Unforgettable

Situated on 108 acres of rolling pasture, Castleton Farms is home to a Greek Revival Antebellum Manor surrounded by the beautiful mountains in Loudon, Tennessee. Modeled after the New Orleans Plantation, Houmas House, the home boasts five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a beautiful spiral staircase in the main foyer, and a circular driveway complete with a twelve-foot, four-tiered Palazzo fountain.

The outdoor features at Castleton Farms are every bit as amazing as the home itself. The back of the home opens on to an incredible lawn with some of the most intricate landscaping in East Tennessee. Imagine an in-ground swimming pool with floating candles shimmering in the water on a perfect summer evening.

In front of the pool is an extraordinary water feature beginning with a Koi pond at the far end of the yard that pours into a brook just before flowing down several waterfalls. The last waterfall plunges into a large pond on the other end of the lawn that even has its own island accessible by an amazing land bridge. On the island sits a towering Jeffersonian-style Grecian gazebo…perfect for amazing photographs. Two brick bridges on opposite sides of the lawn take you across the stream.

Enveloped by lush flowers and greenery twinkling with white lights…patios, tiered gardens, and stairways take you down to the back lawn where a 150 foot walkway is waiting. On both sides of the path are Grecian columns just waiting to be decorated according to your taste. Surrounded by magnolia trees, weeping willows, and more Greek statues, an elegant tent for your guests is sitting under the beautiful canopy of the night sky. At the end of the walkway is a 20′ x 30′ raised platform where a covered pavilion with electricity and lighting await . . . just right for an elegant wedding, entertainment, or dancing.

Further across the property to the right is our vineyard. A walkway lined with Grecian urns leads to a beautiful patio, giving you a second option for your wedding or event site.

The Carriage House is a recently modified equine facility retaining all original woodwork and wrought iron accents. While the simple structure reflects a southern barn, the intricate vaulted ceilings create a cathedral feel for any event.

It illuminates an intimate and warm feeling while the large imported wrought iron chandeliers add the right touch of class to host any occasion. From a country barbecue to a chic 5-course dinner this venue will seat up to 150 guests.

Castleton Farms is an extraordinary venue and truly a place where all your wedding dreams can come true. To find out more about this breathtaking venue, visit their web-site: CastletonFarms.com or call them at (865)376-9040. You can also check out their Facebook page for more exquisite photos!
