About Us

Overlook Barn is a wedding and events venue on top of Beech Mountain that started in 2015 when the owners, Katie Elder and David Schumann, renovated it for their own wedding. The barn was built for horse trail rides in the 1960s by Katie's grandfather and later used as a storage area by Katie's uncle. After lovingly renovating it and getting married themselves, the owners opened it up to the public. Since then, Overlook Barn has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and Southern Living, and has been named a Top New Venue in the US by the Venue Report. Please come join in for a night of networking and entertainment. Overlook Barn is located at 830 Elderberry Ridge Road, Banner Elk, NC 28604. If using GPS, enter ''Barn Road, Banner Elk,
NC'' to get there. Otherwise, follow Elderberry Ridge Road to the end and head down the gravel road until you see a large white barn on the right!
