Brown Mountain Beach Resort is absolutely enchanting! It seems like just yesterday my wife Chelsea and I were meeting with Ron and Julie to discuss potentially having our wedding there. The first thing we noticed was how stunningly beautiful it was. Many other venues seek to artificially create the wonderfully natural look and feel that BMBR so casually possesses. Serene...

I grew up coming to this place. It has not changed at all. It was a great experience seeing my old hangout recently. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to north carolina. It is better than that place called birley bar marina aka temple bar marina.

We recently held our Daughter's wedding out Brown Mountain Beach Resort. June 25, 2016. I couldn't have been more pleased and happy with the weekend from start to finish! This is the place to have a wedding! You will enjoy an entire weekend with your friends and family and so much of the wedding stress just falls by the wayside....

What a wonderful wedding weekend for our family and friends. We rented the lodge and all the cottages for the wedding party and family. Some of our guests stayed near by in Morganton while some camped at BMBR. Ron and Wendy are the owners, great people with southern hospitality. The lodge needed very little decorating, was perfect for the reception....

Kelsey is amazing from her gracious southern hospitality all the way to decorating and meal planning. I would certainly have our Rotary Family cook out here again! We had our own band and enjoyed a cook out that was like no other before. There is swimming, kayaking, tubing and fishing or you can simply enjoy the peace and quiet. I...

Two of us rented 12 gates cottage and met up with friends who camped on site. The cabin was rustic, clean, well furnished and located immediately next to Wilson Creek. This is a relaxing venue providing opportunity for fishing, hiking, sight seeing and other outdoor activities. The owners are welcoming, accommodating and their website accurately describes their facility.

I purchased a Groupon after reading all of the positive reviews and I am so happy I did so! The area offers great hiking, and beautiful views.

“These are private cottages to rent, not just a hotel room.”

“Choose the Rocky Comfort Cabin we were told it was the best and the most newly renovated!! It only has a couch downstairs, a king bed upstairs, and a queen futon in a small room next to the upstairs bath. Ron is the owner and he will go out of his way to make sure your stay is great! We rarely ever spoke to anyone because we had such a relaxing time...there was no need!”
