Starkeytown Cove

Welcome to Starkeytown Cove. A Beautiful Romantic Escape.

Your happiness is the center of our attention. We are family owned and operated. This means you’ll deal with the same staff every time you
have a need, and our heart is dedicated to your wedding. We want you to feel like you’re right at home.

Our venue has the most privacy you’ll find anywhere in the Smoky Mountains. We border the Smoky Mountains National Park on private property near Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN. You will not share your wedding with tourists or strangers, and you will not be burdened with government permits and regulations.

If you long for the “good ole days,” or value the preservation of history and its rustic appeal, you will fall in love with Starkeytown Cove.

We have two dressing rooms and one restroom in the old home place, with history spanning over 150 years. Have your wedding in the pavilion overlooking a mountain stream in a gorgeous deciduous tree line, or host your reception there. We have seating, tables, and table cloths for up to 150 guests. You are free to use all the vendors of your choice by permission from the Starkeytown Cove staff. You may prefer our seasonally decorated outdoor wedding arbor and log benches for your ceremony.
