This stunning eight-acre estate offers one of the most unique wedding venues in the High Country. Nestled between the picturesque mountain towns of Boone and Banner Elk, Whispering Waters Farm is a destination all its own.
This romantic mountain hideaway offers a wedding venue with gorgeous indoor and outdoor facilities, including a lush landscape of curated gardens and beautifully restored buildings that bring an old world charm back to the once forgotten town of Shulls Mills.
Each building tells its own story. Stories of Shulls Mills, stories of a two-decade love affair devoted to the renovation and renaissance of the estate, and a new story, the most beautiful story to come, the story of your wedding day.
The estate is surrounded by the pristine flowing waters of the Watauga River. The rolling valley hills give way to a view of the majestic Grandfather Mountain.
Whispering Waters Farm
The newest addition to the estate, The Barn, was built just 10 years ago in the style of European country architecture using native styles such as feather board, wine barrel chandeliers and stucco. This 1,730 square foot property may serve as your main event area and can accommodate dinner, buffets, dancing and is fully wired for live bands.
The General Store
Built circa 1850, The General Store once served the community of Shulls Mills. The entire 1,900 square foot, two-story building has been renovated and restored to serve as a honeymoon suite upstairs, and a multi-use additional event space downstairs. The General Store is complete with a full kitchen and a full bath.
The Old Shulls Home Place
Once the home place for generations of the Shulls’ Family, this home, built in the 1830s, is currently under restoration. It is a gorgeous, primitive property that currently serves for a brilliant backdrop for stunning outdoor wedding photography.
The Round House
Designed by the famous Georgia architect Gilbert Spindel, the Round House, or what he called the Geodesica, was built in 1972 and features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a great room with a fireplace, a kitchen and a full-size concrete basement that doubles the home’s livable square footage. Currently, the Round House serves as the owners primary residence and is not currently for client use, though there are plans are in the works for that to change.
