Enjoy Your Last Fling Before the Ring at Lake Chatuge

The only time more exciting than the day you say “I do” is the long weekend that you and your closest friends get together for that last hurrah – your Bachelorette party! Lake Chatuge is the perfect place to have a unique retreat to celebrate friendship and, of course, the bride. Grab your gals and venture our way for a trip full of good wine, one-of-a-kind shopping, private art classes and more, all while you soak in beautiful views of the Blue Ridge mountains and sparkling Lake Chatuge. Check out a few of our favorite must-do activities to make planning the perfect bachelorette party a breeze.

Un-Wine-D at Our Vineyards

Nothing brings friends together quite like delicious wine. Lake Chatuge proudly boasts two unique, locally owned and managed vineyards, each of which taps into our rich mountain soil to create delicious wine. Crane Creek Vineyards is nestled within 20 acres worth of scenic valley between the peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After falling in love with the wines of Northern Italy, owner Eric Seifarth vowed to bring their practices and wine styles back home to Lake Chatuge, resulting in a beautiful vineyard with spacious outdoor seating that serves a diverse variety of red, white and rose wines. Hightower Creek Vineyards has been making and serving its delicious blends of wine since 2009, placing emphasis on creating a sense of home for visitors of their vineyard. Seven acres of active vines are the secret behind their award-winning wines, and their spacious and scenic outdoor seating options create an atmosphere that can’t be beat. You and your bridal party are sure to have a lovely day exploring both of these beautiful vineyards!
