I had my wedding here yesterday, and I could not have asked to have it at a better venue! The whole staff was wonderful from start to finish. They helped in anyway they could, and did more than their part. This has been such an easy fun experience with them. If you’re looking for a wedding venue or even if you’re just looking for a place to spend the night without a doubt this is a place you should check into! You won’t be disappointed. Couldn’t have asked for a better day! Thank you for making our wedding day important to you and your staff too! ❤️

River Rest is absolutely the most beautiful, tranquil venue if you are looking for an affordable, cozy lakeside wedding. The staff is incredibly helpful, it really took my mind off the stress of my big day. The view from the house out onto Lake Logan Martin is stunning, and there is so much plant-life around the house that I barely had to decorate.

I had a June wedding, which means it was hot and sticky outside, but nearly the entire outside space at River Rest is shaded so it wasn’t a problem. My caterers were very impressed with their large kitchen.

There is SO much cozy space inside that you’ll have free reign to decorate as you please. I kept all of the furniture in their original locations because it gave my guests lots of comfortable seating post-meal.

I can’t recommend River Rest enough!

My wedding day was perfect. Everything went so smoothly. Dee, Richard, and Ellen are amazing! The food, tables, and linens were amazing. There was plenty of room for everyone to wander around, to sit or stand. Lots of gorgeous views of the lake. They were so professional in helping me plan my big day. Definitely made my life easier! I am so incredibly grateful to them for helping me and my family plan this huge day for me and my husband.

Dee at River Rest is a wonderful and very helpful lady to work with! Her 12 years experience in the wedding world made me very secure in putting my most special day in her hands. She has a great relationship with outside vendors and is able to make helpful suggestions during the planning stage. The bed-and-breakfast is a beautiful place with well manicured landscaping that creates a beautiful backdrop right next to the amazing view of the lake. Everything is just right and ready for the perfect day!

Beautiful Place for a wedding.
— J.T.

We attended Stevie R.s’ Wedding. We really enjoyed the country riverside home atmosphere. The place is really beautiful and the view awesome. The host/owners are so gracious they make you feel at home. All of the outdoor living space is so comfortable and spacious, perfect for even a fairly large gathering. I think that was the best wedding I have ever attended.

I came to a dear friend of mines wedding here yesterday and I can’t even begin to desrcibe how gorgeous this whole entire property is. The staff went above and beyond to make yesterday perfect. The owner of the property was talking to us towards the end and telling us about all of the work he has done to make the property what it is today. He personally made additions to the house and also right across from the property is the lake. On the lake there is this tiny little island with trees. The owner was telling me when he first bought the property you couldn’t see the lake because the little island was so overgrown. So he personally cleared some of the vegitation so not only can you see his beautiful house from the lake but you have a million dollar view from the front porch. I will definitely recommend River Rest to all of my friends and I will definitely be back!

I want to thank Dee Wilson and staff. Such a great team and professional. You all were so accommodating and helpful. A beautiful facility, too. You were a great help to me with the flower arrangements. I know Bradley & Amber B. were very pleased with how smoothly everything went. A great, and beautiful, and local facility to have a wedding or any event!

Words cannot express our deep appreciation for the staff/owners/event planner of River Rest Bed and Breakfast!!!! When you hear of River Rest, don’t just think of weddings, think of EVERY event you can imagine!!!! Be it a shower to celebrate an upcoming wedding, or birth (which I hope will be our next celebration), to a romantic weekend away, to a family reunion.!! These folks make you feel like you are a part of their family and they are apart of yours! If you forgot something, need something, have a question; they are right on the spot to help you!!!!
Please give this beautiful location a call, you can’t possibly go wrong with a River Rest Event of any kind!!! Just sitting in a rocker on the porch with a view of God’s beautiful creation (the water/the island/the sunset), to the beautiful rooms they have available is just....comforting!! Love Mr. Richard, Ms. Ellen, Ms. Dee and all the staff who made my daughter, my son and my Oh-fish-al grandson’s day PERFECT!!

This is an absolutely beautiful venue. The house and grounds are wonderfully kept and the view of the lake is amazing. I spoke with several of the staff and owners and they were all super friendly. The wedding which I was attending ran very smooth and the 12 hours that I spent here were laid back and completely enjoyable.

My Nephew and beautiful bride had their wedding here yesterday it was amazing and the owners Richard and Ellen are wonderful people god has and will continue to bless them both.They made us all feel at home.
— K.H.

Due to bad weather, we had to change wedding venues only 2 days before our daughter’s wedding. Richard, Ellen and Dee were very gracious, understanding and accommodating! They treated our families and our 80+ guests like their family. They pitched in and helped make everything wonderful for our daughter’s special day. We HIGHLY recommend River Rest to anyone for any occasion!
