About Us

2014 Pick - the knot best of weddingsKen Hodde and Bruce Koehn opened the Phoenix in December of 1998. Since that time, it has served as a special venue for thousands of happy guests. Guests have come from all over the nation and the world to celebrate special weddings here or to participate in company meetings or functions. The property has been in the Hodde family for over 100 years.

Southern Hospitality Practiced Here
The Phoenix provides you with the highest level of service along with a big dose of southern hospitality. Our goal is to make your wedding day or special event memorable, and stress-free. We plan each event as if it were for a member of our own family, leaving no detail unattended to. We handle the details so you do not have to worry with them and we’ll do whatever it takes to make you and your guests happy.

“Welcome to the Phoenix and thanks for visiting our website. When you visit the Phoenix, you will find a country retreat that is both welcoming and relaxing. In fact, we have heard many times from our guests that once they are here, they don’t want to leave. You will discover why when you see our attention to the details in the beautiful décor of our guest rooms and meeting rooms, and our passion for landscape design and horticulture. This is evident with the water garden and lily pond, the vegetable and flower gardens, the hand-crafted cedar post arbor draped in purple wisteria, and with the variety of flowers and plants on the property. We invite you to come share your special occasion with us.”
