Hope Wilderness Chapel

25-120 Guests

Modeled after historic churches from the 1800s, the Hope Wilderness Chapel was hand-crafted from local materials including native short-leaf pine logs, rough-sawn oak flooring and an eastern red cedar ceiling. Framing a striking view of a waterfall, the chapel’s back wall frames a picturesque view with floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors leading to a private patio. The Wilderness Chapel seats 120 guests and is available for weddings, vow renewals, meetings and special services.
