Rental Venues

The Boarding House Venue

Thompson’s Store offers a multi-room upstairs space that is perfect for social gatherings of all types: birthday parties, family reunions, wedding receptions, art exhibitions, and holiday soirees.

Five historically-refurbished rooms, plus a lovely new balcony, allow the Boarding House Venue to comfortably accommodate your parties, from a cozy group of a dozen friends to larger and grander celebrations of over 100 people!

The Boarding House has all the modern amenities (including an elevator and handicap-accessible restrooms) but retains a historic charm, hearkening back to the early 1900’s when our building’s second floor served as a boardinghouse for railroad workers.

Let us make your next group event a truly memorable one!  Please contact Judy Ward to book reservations or to make inquiries:  828-749-2321.

 

 

 

 

 

Back Alley Barn & Deck

Our Back Alley Barn & Deck can accommodate up to 50 people, and is the perfect outdoor venue for weddings, dances, and parties.  Our deck can incorporate tables and chairs for a sit-down meal, or we can clear the floor for dancing!  The balcony on the barn is the perfect location for a small band or a DJ.  A lovely waterfall at the opposite end of the deck adds to the natural beauty of our outdoor setting.  Catering for events can be provided by Thompson’s Store or by an outside vendor.

Again, please contact Judy Ward to book reservations or to make inquiries:  828-749-2321.
