Ceremony & Reception Venue

It’s all about location, location, location

Transport your guests to a land of opulent southern grace, where magical spaces unfold across a secret garden, croquet lawn, wine cellar and beyond. The luxurious boutique inn is set on 100 acres of immaculate Virginia countryside and offers an eight-peaked sailcloth tent with hardwood flooring, along with overnight accommodations for up to 39 in 20 uniquely appointed guest rooms, suites and cottages.


Memories for life, expertly captured

The venue’s natural backdrops drip with timeless charm, ensuring your wedding album will be a valued piece of history for decades to come. Wedding party and family portraits are precious overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. First looks spark magic in front of the white columned Colonial Revival Manor House and classic vintage automobile. And private moments happen in the fabled secret garden or by the infinity pool.

Planning, Coordination & Design

With you every step of the way

The Clifton Inn wedding team is on hand to assist with all of your prepping and day-of desires or to work with your preferred planner. Allow the pros to arrange a spa day in the Carriage House, private yoga session in the garden or pool party with your family. The team can also plan a golf outing or brewery tour. Take comfort in knowing the in-house power and lighting technician will handle ceremony and reception logistics.

Florals & Decor

Here comes all the pretty!

The Clifton’s in-house wedding team is happy to help you select florals to accentuate your ceremony and reception spaces. Tell your story throughout the property — cloak the secret garden in sweet romantic blooms, add to the flowering gardens along the croquet lawn and design a custom arch for an elaborate outdoor ceremony. Take your guests’ breath away with vibrant floral and candlelight tablescapes and lush seasonal arrangements in the sailcloth tent.

Catering & Bar Services

So much more than just a meal

The Clifton’s full-service wedding packages involve complete event staffing with butlered wine and cocktail reception hors d'oeuvres, bar service, expert culinary and banquet teams and a three-course plated or family-style dinner with wine service. Plan your custom wedding menu with The Clifton’s executive chef, incorporating the bounty of the onsite organic vegetable and herb gardens. Visit the wine cellar to hand-select accompanying vintages.
