We had so much fun here. It’s like stepping back in time when you walk through the houses and meet with the “Cobb family”. The grounds are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. We enjoyed a relaxing, laid back day here.

When my daughter was looking for a rustic venue for her wedding that wasn't going to cost an arm and a leg, Rocky Mount came to the rescue. They offered everything we needed and we had a wonderful experience.
