The Mount Ida Collection
Design your dream weekend around this exclusive Virginia getaway’s charming gazebo, lush acreage, waterside features, historic columned manor, private beach and time-honored tasting room. This coveted gated country estate impresses with its relaxed and refined atmosphere stretching across 5,000 acres.
Select from four private venues, each offering far-reaching Blue Ridge Mountain views and forever rolling pastures. Perfect for large soirees and weekend stays, a gated estate entrance leads to the restored event barn flanked by the Mount Ida Manor home. Call on Water’s Edge for a dreamy lakeside ceremony scene and design a special wedding party reception in the tasting room. Huddled in a picturesque grove, the Lodge is a horse stable turned dramatic dignified venue with preserved oak timber framing and high vaulted ceilings.
Onsite accommodations ensure guests are comfortable and well cared for. The Mount Ida Manor offers nine bedrooms, a picturesque deck, tennis courts and more, while the Mount Pleasant Manor features four bedrooms and a two-bedroom guest house.
Just 20 miles south of Charlottesville, Mount Ida’s sublime farm and vineyard is praised for its all-inclusive design and luxury amenities. Choose from four venues: an event barn with a lakeside gazebo; the lodge with its stunning mountain views, chandeliers and wooden deck with two antique fountains; the Water’s Edge pavilion overlooking the lake or the exclusive acreage-flanked red barn.
Breathtaking backdrops unfold in every direction throughout this 5,000-acre country estate. Picture-perfect grove ceremonies are set against spectacular mountain views while wedding party portraits shine along the Lodge’s bluestone walkways, gurgling creeks and beautiful landscaping. Pause for first looks and embraces in the lakeside gazebo, capture special moments in the French Provincial bridal suite and say "I do" on the dock of an expansive private lake at Water’s Edge.
