“An Artistic Feast for the Senses”

Food is an essential part of the human experience. We bond over breaking bread, relax with a glass of wine, commune over shared meals. It tells its own part of the story of our lives. Castle Ladyhawke events are catered exclusively by Chef Johannes Klapdohr of the Library Kitchen and Bar, former Executive Chef of Old Edwards Inn.

Chef Johannes Klapdohr

Award-winning Chef Johannes Klapdohr has over 20 years experience in the catering world, managing catering and menu design at highly regarded resorts such as Old Edwards Inn & Spa and The Lodge at St. Simons Island, GA.

Chef Johannes has catered over 500 special events and weddings and brings his experience and expertise to Western North Carolina, offering personalized menu design and consultation with each client to ensure the food positively reflects each event.

Chef Johannes has studied with several of the best chefs in the world, including Eckard Witzigman, one of only four chefs globally to be named “Chef of the Century” by Gault Millau in his legendary “Restaurant Aubergine” in Munich.

After 33 successful years and experience in the hospitality business, Chef Johannes decided to partner with Marvin and Helene Gralnick, founders of Chicos, to create The Library Kitchen and Bar in Sapphire, NC.

Chef Johannes and his team are excited and honored to provide a memorable dining experience for you and your guests on your special day!

“We had our wedding at Bear Lake. Let me first say, it was beautiful. We were treated extremely well. We really liked our planner who went out of her way to ensure everything was what we expected. The grounds are amazing. Everyone was very nice. The condos were breathtaking. I highly recommend Bear Lake Reserve.”

“Bear Lake is our Favorite”

Loved the friendly staff, the gorgeous views, the beautiful home we stayed in, the yummy food from the clubhouse restaurant, the stunning children’s park area with green moss that looked like a fairy land… seriously one of our favorite family trips. A great setting to either chill or go on adventures and enjoy every moment!
