Country chapels are very popular for southern weddings. The chapel at Bluff Mountain Inn was custom designed and built in 2007 by Burt Barrett and is modeled after one of the vintage chapels in the Cades Cove area of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The photo on the back wall of the chapel on the right is of that Cades Cove Missionary Baptist Church.
The chapel is a one-room building with one center aisle and pews on each side. Up front there is a vintage mantle and some ironwork stained glass window replicas. There are windows on both sides and a side door next to the front of the building. The main entrance is from the back. The building does have air-conditioning which makes it available for weddings year round. It will seat approximately 75 people. There is no room in the chapel for a reception. The restrooms are in our garden reception hall near the chapel.
The pews were imported from a church in West Virginia and custom fitted and reupholstered for our chapel. It is a beautiful place to hold your mountain wedding ceremony, and also serves as a backup for outdoor weddings in case of inclement weather.
