Fab Feature: The setting is lovely, with 47 rolling acres and mountain views! Plus the circa 1805 inn itself is hard to resist.
Event Space Highlights: What was once an old tractor shed barn has been transformed into The Fox Den at Briar Patch, a spacious room where rustic stone columns contrast with crystal chandeliers, and a series of French doors frame views of the verdant surroundings. Outdoor events can be held on the grounds.
Notable Amenity: The on-site accommodations! You can make a weekend event out of your wedding, thanks to exclusive use of lodging in the 8-bedroom main house, the 1-bedroom cottage, and the 3-bedroom Chicken Coop (named for the real chicken coop that once occupied this site).
Interesting Tidbit: These two barns were built in the 1700s, dismantled piece by piece, transported from farms in upstate New York, and joined here under one roof.
Event Space Highlights: The English Barn and lobby accommodate small receptions or meetings, while the German Barn serves as an acoustically perfect auditorium for larger receptions. Both feature a wooden façade and interiors, big windows, and a performance stage.
Interesting Tidbit: It’s a 4,200-acre working cattle ranch, where horseback riding through their pastures and woods is a major pastime.
Event Space Highlights: The Pavilion is perfect for a candlelit reception, while the James Marshall Manor House B&B lends itself to more intimate gatherings. For a fun setting, check out the Marriott Forks Western Town (a replica of an Old West Main Street), where you can arrive by hay wagon or on horseback.
Notable Services: In addition to catering (custom menus available), they offer full rental and décor services.
Fab Feature: You can create a bouquet from flowers in their garden, craft a menu from their heirloom vegetables, and say your vows within view of the animals that graze among the pastures. And let’s not forget the Blue Ridge and Bull Run Mountain vistas!
Event Space Highlights: Say “I do” in an open field followed by a reception in the charmingly rustic barn…or, get married in the barn, then move the party to a pasture with the Blue Ridge Mountains as your backdrop.
Wedding Package Perks: Their “Wedding Weekend” packages include exclusive use of the farm and its amenities for an entire weekend.
Fab Feature: Outdoor weddings can happen year round—there are several ceremony locations from which to choose, including a rooftop terrace with the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background, under the front veranda of the grand home, or on the "carriage steps", with your guests seated on a lawn overlooking pastures and ponds.
Event Space Highlights: The custom ballroom is fully outfitted to accommodate the needs of modern weddings, but its wood floor, sparkling chandeliers and rows of French doors blend seamlessly with the Manor's vintage Southern style.
Wedding Package Perks: Your rental includes exclusive use of the entire home (with four beautiful guest suites), ballroom and grounds from Friday through Sunday, so you can hold all your wedding weekend events in one spot.
