A Private Mountaintop Retreat for Very Special Events

Our Venue

If you are seeking a classic yet casual & rustic setting, a BIG red “barn-inspired” and mountain top nature facility that is VERY UNIQUE for even the most discriminating bride and groom, we may be just the place for you.

SILVER HEARTH LODGE is a private and gated wedding facility that encompasses the very top of Bent Mountain on 40 acres…we are the ONLY PRIVATE MOUNTAIN TOP WEDDING VENUE IN THE ENTIRE SOUTH EAST.  The elevation is 3000′ above sea level with views of the Roanoke Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains that go on and on and on for as far as the eye can see.  While spring and fall weddings are our most popular, summer weddings on the mountain top can boast of perfect temperatures (average 76 degrees in August).

Our refined rustic wedding venue can accommodate up to 300 for a wedding ceremony/ reception event and in the rare event of inclement weather, our indoor rain plan is flawless!  Since we are a “day lodge,” overnight accommodations for you/your guests are provided by Holiday Inn Tanglewood [Roanoke, VA] at deeply discounted rates…they will even help with your transportation needs to and from the venue on their shuttle bus!  Because we believe that you should have whatever type of catering you want and not be forced to use “the venues’ choice,” we have an extensive list of caterers (ranging from $10 – $150 per person) who are included in our catalog of professional wedding vendors – all of whom have agreed to offer their services at VERY reasonable rates!  Your special day will be easy, affordable & incredible because we have done much of the decorating and nearly all of the work for you with set up/take down/clean up.  …and yes, alcohol is allowed (BYOB) at our facility with no restrictions.
A few of our facilities that will enhance your dream day include: VistaView Hall – our huge red barn reception hall with a luxurious bridal suite, Starbucks featured coffee bar, caterers kitchen, high tech dance floor & lighting, cantina bar, wood burning fireplaces, our prized “sipping” porch with vintage wooden rocking chairs and lots of chandeliers and twinkle lights throughout.  Other facilities include the: Overlook Pavilion, grooms cabin known as the SUGAR CAMP, 1890’s domed wrought iron wedding gazebo w/ mason jar chandelier, Native American Fire Circle with its flame tower & stone fire pit, SKY SHELTER I-our new Ralph Lauren inspired “glamping” cabin, Sacred Heart Chapel – Virginia’s Smallest Church (rates for very small elopement weddings start @ $995), beautiful guest bathrooms, Woodridge for Kids Playground, our Kennel Club for boarding your 4 legged family members and plenty of on-site parking for all of your guests.

Silver Hearth Lodge

Here’s a sneak peak into vacation with SHL proprietor, Bob Johnston. This trip to Christmastown at Busch Gardens had multiple stops to see how things are built, how the lights are wired, tapping on trees to see if they’re real, locating speakers in the shrubs, etc. He is always looking for ideas and ways to make Silver Hearth even better. My favorite moment was this visit with Nino. He’s been crafting clay since he was 13 years old in Italy, somewhat of a dying art, but he has mastered it. He is eager to send us a few pieces for the venue! ...
