Stare out into vast overlook at River Pines Venue, and you’ll forget for a split second that you’re in Carthage. The land, which mimics the scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains, has been in the McDonald family for years.
It wasn’t until last year when the family decided to share the beauty and the acreage by opening up River Pines Venue — a multi-purpose space just waiting to be the site of your fall events.
Aside from the incredible views, River Pines Venue is equipped with a shelter, picnic tables, fire pits and newly-renovated restrooms. Rent it out for everything from weddings and family reunions to staff retreats.
Event coordinator Brandy McDonald says the family plans to slowly expand River Pines. They hope to eventually add a “glamping” tent, and make the space larger.
