Oh if this tree could talk. It could give an insight in the lives of generations of our family who have been raised as it grew. No one knows the exact year it was planted by Sampson but this massive red maple has very deep roots. Much like those who have watched it grow. #sampsonshollow #family #...

My best friend had her wedding here last weekend. It is BEAUTIFUL! The staff is wonderful. Her coordinator was so awesome! The cabin the bride's party was getting ready in is so adorable. We had a great time. I would recommend anyone looking for a beautiful place to have your dream wedding to call them. You will not be disappointed. Beautiful is not a good enough word.

We just returned home from our wedding at Sampson’s Hollow and we can’t stop talking about how PERFECT our day was, thanks to everyone at this beautiful venue. Lesley was amazing from the start - so organized and laid back. Everyone made us feel so special. The food was delicious, the cake was gorgeous, and the flowers were the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. We decided to get married on the porch of the red barn and it was beautiful looking out at the sun shining on the mountains and fields. We are so glad that we chose Sampson’s Hollow for our wedding. It was a memorable experience that our family and friends will be talking and smiling about for a long time.

My husband and I had our wedding on May 27, 2019 at Sampson’s hollow. We live in FL but found Sampson’s hollow online. After seeing the venue and reading their outstanding reviews we booked them! We like other couples who have left glowing reviews, had the most amazing wedding day at Sampson’s Hollow. I can not describe how perfect our day was. Sampson’s hollow is a beautiful, secluded, intimate venue with stunning views of the mountains and foothills. We received so many compliments from guests on how beautiful the property was. Every detail of our day was perfect. The location was picturesque. Our wedding coordinator, Lesley, worked so hard and knew every detail of our day so that we could relax and enjoy while she made everything happen. The food was delicious. And the cabin we stayed in the wedding night was so cozy, comfy and lovely. This venue is top notch. The staff are INCREDIBLE. Lesley, we cannot thank you enough.

Southern charm at its best

A southern wedding…transcending time and dimension—charming, romantic and uniquely your own; the beginning of your happily ever should be a magical moment to be remembered forever and captured in the windows of your soul. Our wedding venue, located in the Great Smoky Mountains makes for a perfect destination for out of state brides as well as for last minute elopements. Sampson's Hollow is an event facility that will provide the storybook location for any special event or gathering.  Recently named as a 2019 Wedding Wire Couple’s Choice winner and The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2019, the naturally landscaped farmland has been in the family since the mid 1800’s.  It was recently recognized by the state of Tennessee as an historic Century-old farm.  Located next to Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee and fifteen minutes from the entrance to the national park, Sampson’s Hollow is easily accessible while still maintaining the privacy and seclusion which most guests desire.  In the event of bad weather, the porch of our contemporary barn will seat approximately 175 guests on a covered front porch, accented by a lighted chandelier in the center of the elevated roof and a full view of the beauty of the property.  Our newly constructed Foundry will seat an additional 40 guests with a majestic view to enjoy. The interior of the barn will seat up to 100 guests, depending on use of space.  Features include air-conditioning, a wood burning fireplace, upstairs loft for changing, three restrooms, a small kitchen and a handicap –accessible entrance. A sweetly adorned cabin provides a dressing suite for the bride and her attendants as well as a romantic beginning for the first night as husband and wife. Please visit our website at www.sampsonshollow.com for more information and click on our links to Pinterest, Facebook and YouTube to see photos and a virtual tour of the property.
