About Chestnut Mountain Resort

Chestnut Mountain Resort is a wedding venue nestled high above the majestic Mississippi River. Since this venue opened its doors in 1959, it has been witness to many weddings and milestone events. It isn’t hard to imagine why, seeing as it is set against the valley, rolling hills, and a myriad of picturesque locations. This backdrop can only be surpassed by the beauty of the happy couple. The multiple sites at Chestnut Mountain Resort allow you to host celebrations of any size and kind. Choose to say “I do” with the Mississippi River as your backdrop or have yourself a tented reception on our well-maintained grounds. The Sunset Garden Tent provides the perfect sunset ambiance for the magical evening. Looking for something more lowkey? Our Vista Reception Room has floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the Mississippi River with a deck to capture those once in a lifetime moments. There are plenty of opportunities, in and around the venue, for unique captures of your special day. Chestnut Mountain Resort offers overnight accommodations for the comfort and convenience of you and your guests. They also present an array of different packages to cater to different needs and budgets. Tables, linens, napkins, dance floors, lighting, heaters, fans, and electrical hook-ups for tented events can be provided. Additionally, they offer day-of coordination services to help you pull off a seamless event. The in-house culinary team will also be able to whip up some delicious and decadent dishes that will easily be one of the highlights of your wedding day.
