Walker Creek Barn
SWVA’s Newest Event Venue
11/20/17 – Britt & Leigh Stoudenmire proudly announce their newest venture in Giles County, Walker Creek Barn. Walker Creek Barn offers a unique event venue space, lodging, and agritourism opportunities for the community and region. This new development is located in the southeastern portion of Giles, along the Route 100 corridor. The Stoudenmires have worked in the hospitality industry as owners of New River Outdoor Co. and Walker Creek Retreat for the last 14 years and see endless potential for Walker Creek Barn. Their mission is larger than this new business venture, it’s also a community development project. “Giving back has always been a foundation of our business, and we are using this new venture to help spread a positive “light” in Giles County,” says Leigh.
Walker Creek Barn is a spacious, 5,600 square-foot meeting and event space. Situated on the crest of a 10-acre picturesque mountaintop with long-range and panoramic views of Walker Mountain, Sugar Run, Angel’s Rest, and Cloyd’s Gap, among others. Walker Creek Barn provides a truly breathtaking and one-of-a-kind location for any wedding or event. Some of its unique features include a spacious bridal loft, a groom’s lounge, a large, well-equipped catering prep kitchen, adequate wattage for sound & AV equipment, and multiple ceremony sites. “The barn was developed with ease of access – from vendors to guests – in mind. We offer ample parking, restrooms, and we’re handicap accessible,” added Britt.
Designed and decorated with a perfect balance of rustic, elegance, and natural beauty, Walker Creek Barn can be utilized as both an open-air or fully enclosed facility. The large, plentiful windows allow natural light to filter inside while your guests can admire the impressive views outside. The barn is fully heated and air-conditioned making weddings & events comfortable in all seasons. Walker Creek Barn can accommodate weddings, receptions, retreats, conferences, and meetings.
Walker Creek Barn is easily located a half-mile off VA Route 100, a four-lane highway between Pearisburg and Dublin in Giles County, VA. Walker Creek Barn features on-site and local lodging options and eateries, yet is only 30 min from Blacksburg and Radford, 1 hour from Roanoke Regional Airport, and 2 to 5 hours from most major cities on the east coast.
This tourism development project announcement is made with the full support of the Giles County Tourism Office. Walker Creek Barn is now booking for 2018/2019 weddings, events, and associated lodging at Walker Creek Retreat.
