Selecting a Venue – Making the Most of a Tour at Legacy Stables and Events


Finding a place to host an event can be a daunting prospect. Whether you’re planning a wedding, an office party, a seminar or other special occasion, a lot is riding on your choice of venue. People attending need something that is convenient and comfortable, and as the organizer you’re looking for a venue that can fit the size of your party and provide all the amenities necessary.

Legacy Stables and Events provides a great place to host special occasions and corporate events of all sizes in the Winston-Salem area and Triad region. We encourage anyone planning an event to come take a tour of our location to see for yourself exactly what’s available and how we can meet your needs. Our expert team has compiled a list of things to keep in mind to make the most of a tour of our venue, or any that you plan to explore before making a deposit for the big day.

Make Legacy Stables and Events your first stop. We understand that many brides-to-be and event planners are looking at a variety of venues. However, it makes sense to schedule a tour of our location first. At Legacy Stables and Events we have three event venues of different locations, and getting to see each one first-hand helps give you an idea of the size of a space and the possibilities each one holds.

Plan your visit in advance. We suggest calling to set up an appointment to schedule a time for a tour, and allow up to an hour and a half for the full experience. Our hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday, but we can be available evenings and weekends if needed. We try to accommodate walk-ins if we’re available, but appointments are preferred, to give you the best experience and our full attention on the tour.

What to expect on our tour. Legacy Stables and Events includes three possible venues sitting on a beautifully landscaped, 30-acre property. During the tour we’ll take you to each of our event locations, starting with Grace Barn where we’ll tour the Salem Stallway and Cate’s Ballroom. From there we walk you through the Legacy House with its Bridal Suite and Robert’s Quarters. Then we take a golf cart to the Forsyth Barn which includes the Grand Ballroom, Carolina Room, bridal suite and groom’s cabin. We’ll also tour the property, including a visit to our newly constructed waterfall. With exquisite landscaping, it makes the perfect backdrop for pictures.

Come prepared with information and questions. Once the tour is complete, we’ll sit down to discuss pricing and create a customized estimate for your event. Make sure to have information including the date you would like to reserve, the number of guests, and type of food and bar accommodations you prefer. We pride ourselves on customer service, and take time with each guest to go over the estimate in detail and answer any questions. We know that plans can change, and we’re always willing to create a new estimate. Is your wedding guest list bigger than you originally expected? Have you decided you’d prefer a bar option for your nonprofit fundraiser? Feel free to ask us for a new estimate as many times as you need.

Come back for a second look! We’ve found that for many brides-to-be, it’s easier to scout out venues by yourself, and not include other people until you’ve narrowed down your choice. When you decide on Legacy Stables and Events for your wedding or special event, we’re glad to do a second tour with your partner, your mom, or your bridesmaid who is helping plan the wedding.

Don’t put off looking for a venue. Popular dates book fast, and we wouldn’t want you to miss out on hosting the wedding of your dreams or a corporate event that gets people talking at our beautiful venue. Schedule a tour today to see just how beautiful the setting is at Legacy Stables and Events for your special occasion!
