A Pristine estate


Nestled in the heart of Kentucky’s adventure capitol, Hemlock Springs is a stunning Red River Gorge wedding and event venue. Situated on a pristine one hundred acre estate, you have access to privacy while still enjoying an easy one-hour drive from Lexington. Complete with rock shelters, waterfalls, streams, and mountain meadows, our wedding  and event venue is brimming with wildlife and serenity. Because we want to preserve this beauty, Hemlock Springs has incorporated green building techniques that meet the International Energy Conservation Code requirements. In doing this, we bring you a luxury Red River Gorge wedding  & event venue in a sustainable, and eco-friendly, manner.

Because of our efforts, you can regularly catch a glimpse of deer, turkey, fox, coyote, owls, hawks, and many others. In addition, with one hundred acres to explore we can arrange scenic hikes on the property for retreats or guests for wedding weekends. Perhaps catching a perfect sunset on the sunset knoll with comfortable seating is your ideal way to end the day. After that, stay put and enjoy a clear view of the Milky Way. Although there is great cell service, we encourage you to unplug, unwind and connect to the nature that makes Hemlock Springs so spectacular. 

















Amish crafted building







Our 7,000 square foot building doubles as a pristine wedding chapel and one-of-a-kind event venue. The structure features impressive timber frame dressing areas built using wooden pegs instead of nails. In addition, massive Douglas fir beams are featured throughout the building. Guests will enjoy our luxurious and well-appointed climate controlled restrooms. Similarly appointed, our spacious reception area is perfect for hosting retreats, conferences, weddings or galas. Amish craftsmanship can be seen throughout the building. Further, thoughtful design elements ensure you and your guests are comfortable. Enjoy Red River Gorge’s stunning mountaintop views from the veranda or the mountain meadow views from the patio, both draped in specialty lighting. Above all, Hemlock Springs is truly a one-of-a-kind venue.


thoughtful touches








In addition to creating a stunning Red River Gorge wedding and event venue, we’ve done our best to provide lots of extras you and your guests will enjoy. For instance, you’ll appreciate our beautiful hand-crafted harvest tables. In the same vein, we provide a variety of custom pieces such as a rolling bar, signs, easels and lawn games. And then of course, there is the dreamy Hemlock Grove ceremony site with a custom Amish-built gazebo and benches tucked carefully among the trees. Hemlock Springs has gone to great lengths to make celebrating easy and carefree with a focus on using natural materials. We encourage you to bring the outdoors in, and celebrations outdoors. With several ceremony sites to choose from on the property, your woodland wedding or perfect weekend retreat dreams are just a few steps away.

“We are very excited to be planning our wedding with Hemlock Springs over the next several months! The venue is absolutely beautiful from the wooded, rustic ceremony site, to the extravagant reception barn, and you can’t beat those views! Liz has by far been the most helpful and most friendly host we have spoken with. She is willing to go above and beyond your needs. I highly recommend this venue!”
