Nestled atop a wooded bluff overlooking the Catawba River and the Carolina Thread Trail, sits Brakefield.
Brakefield is unlike any other stand-alone event venue in this region. With its old-world European warmth and sophisticated charm, the unique architectural design invokes a feeling of "home" while old-world decor gives the venue a slight medieval feel upon entry and throughout.
The greystone and stucco facade is adorned with flickering gas lanterns, and a rich Andean walnut double entry door. Soaring spired roofs and a turret add to the European aesthetic of the Brakefield facility. Inside you'll find an ample entry hall with natural slate floors, beautiful baroque lighting, a Bridal Parlor housed inside the turret, Groom's quarters, and a Green Room that are beautifully appointed for use by wedding parties or as break-out meeting spaces for corporate gatherings. The 2800 square foot Grand Hall is perfect for grand receptions or more formal corporate events.
From the Grand Hall, five sets of eight foot French doors lead to the 1150 square foot covered Loggia, great for more intimate gatherings and special occassions. The breathtaking grounds at Brakefield include a back lawn and gardens overlooking the beautiful Catawba River and Carolina Thread Trail. This portion of the trail in North and South Carolina runs alongside two and a quarter miles of scenic river for amazing photographic opportunities.
