It all started when…

Heartwood Acres is locally owned and operated by a team of lifelong friends and family who's wishes are to create a magical environment for celebrations in the already-magical area of Lake Oconee.

Heartwood Acres is an intimate modern luxe rustic barn venue, perfect for DIY weddings, parties, corporate events, and more.

Located a few miles from Lake Oconee, Heartwood Acres offers the perfect setting for your big day or other special event--enjoy the barn and explore all that the Lake Oconee area offers, from activities on the water to hiking trails, to smores roasting at the nearby Ritz Carlton every night!

The owners took a chance on an opportunity of a lifetime in 2009 when their local Atlanta indie rock band started touring full-time. Leaving behind their corporate and business successes, they began a four-year musical journey on the road together, collecting a lifetime of memories. When touring was no longer sustainable, the four re-integrated into their pre-tour careers and have been working hard ever since to make their "forever dream" possible--Heartwood Acres.

Driven by love, friendship, and creativity, not only do we hope for Heartwood Acres to provide an unforgettable event experience to our guests, but we want to be part of the community and contribute to the growth, preservation, and general energy of the vibrant lake town!
