  • We giggled a bit about the nickname "Pretty Place" on the long drive up the switchback roads to the chapel, but it certainly is a pretty place. Loved the simplistic design of the open air chapel and.....  more »

  • We ran across this place a few years ago by accident and how wonderful it was! The view is just spectacular and the church pews are under the awning. I can't imagine a more beautiful place for a...  more »

  • Pretty Place Chapel as we know it by, was just amazing and inspiring as well as just plain gorgeous!! We went for the afternoon and felt very peaceful as it went from a drizzle of rain to beautiful sunshine!! Got lots of pictures and felt very refreshed and relaxed as we listened to my Worship music and danced together and just took in the awesome majesty of God’s creation!! It was really nice to just have that time together.
  • Wow what a beautiful place!!! I was amazed!! There was a plaque that said something about the presence touching each soul that visits there and that's just so true because of the beauty that captivates you when you go. It's so serene and such a wonderful place to bask in creation. I'm sure I'll be back again
  • We had our wedding ceremony at Pretty Place, and are so happy we made that decision! The guests were blown away by the pure beauty of the chapel and views! The staff was very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend Pretty Place for a wedding or special event!
  • I've been to this Chapel many times, it is always an inspirational visit. I would suggest if planning a trip to check their website to see if the Chapel is open, they do have closed times when used for special services.
  • We had our wedding ceremony at Pretty Place in June 2018, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting. We had our reception in Asheville, and that is where our guests stayed for the weekend. We were nervous about the one hour drive for our guests from Asheville to and from the ceremony site, however most people did not mind because the drive is absolutely beautiful. We had a large bus drive the entire wedding party and their dates to and from the chapel, and there was plenty of room for the bus on the roads leading up to the chapel, and for the bus to park and turn around. Everyone said the drive was well worth it once they reached the chapel, and our pictures could not be more perfect. We did not have any decorations other than the flowers that the bridesmaids and myself carried down the aisle, and I honestly don't think you need any; the spot is beautiful on its own. The only "issue" we had was that once at the chapel, there is no cell service, which makes getting back a little tricky if you don't know where you're going. However, if you pre-plan you won't have any issues! We loved our day and would recommend this ceremony spot to everyone!
