SWVA’s Newest Mountaintop Event Venue

 

Giles County, VAThe proprietors, Britt & Leigh Stoudenmire, proudly announce their newest venture in Giles County, Walker Creek Barn. Opening in June 2018, Walker Creek Barn offers a unique event venue space, lodging, and agritourism opportunities for the community and region. This new development is located in the southeastern portion of Giles, along the Route 100 corridor. The Stoudenmires have worked in the hospitality industry as owners of New River Outdoor Co. and Walker Creek Retreat for the last 14 years and see endless potential for Walker Creek Barn. Their mission is larger than this new business venture, it’s also a community development project. “Giving back has always been a foundation of our business and we want to use this venture to spread a positive light in Giles County,” says Leigh.

 

Walker Creek Barn is a spacious, 5,600 square-foot venue space that can accommodate weddings, receptions, retreats, conferences, and meetings. Situated on the crest of a 10-acre picturesque mountaintop with long-range and panoramic views of Walker Mountain, Sugar Run, Angel’s Rest, and Cloyd’s Gap, among others, Walker Creek Barn provides a truly breathtaking and one-of-a-kind location for any wedding or event. Some of its unique features include a spacious bridal loft that can convert to 2 guestrooms, a groom’s lounge, a large, well-equipped catering prep kitchen, adequate wattage for sound & AV equipment, and multiple ceremony sites. “The barn was developed with ease of access – from vendors to guests – in mind. We offer ample parking, restrooms, and we’re handicap accessible,” added Britt. Designed and decorated with a perfect balance of rustic, elegance, and natural beauty, Walker Creek Barn can be utilized as both an open-air or fully enclosed facility. The large, plentiful windows allow natural light to filter inside while your guests can admire the impressive views outside. The barn is fully heated and air-conditioned making weddings & events comfortable in all seasons.
