A Natural Oasis

A beautiful blend of elegance and rustic charm, Big Spring Farm sits on nearly 500 acres surrounded by rolling meadows and mountain views. The customizable venue and working cattle farm includes a historic waterfront barn, Virginia's largest natural springs, pastoral and mountain views, and a private 10-acre spring-fed lake. An experienced event team specializes in bespoke barn weddings, providing modern facilities while elevating the property's historic barns and homes.

Stunning portrait locations are endless, drawing on the natural scenery and weaving in timeless country elements. A hilltop ceremony spot features 360-degree mountain views and an ideal golden hour photo destination a short walk from the reception barn. Another waterfront ceremony site is surrounded by weeping willows, creating an "outdoor cathedral" canopy of trees. Guests enjoy mingling and celebrating on the gorgeously manicured lawn where abundant space welcomes lawn games and al fresco lounge areas.

The 150-year-old restored event barn is climate controlled and presents a striking canvas to build out your dream reception. The veranda offers a covered area in case of inclement weather, an outdoor dining room, a cocktail space, or an outdoor dance floor. Savor a middle-of-nowhere aesthetic just minutes from quaint downtown Lexington. Invite friends and family to stay in the Midland House where 10 can comfortably sleep or the four-person Little Silver Cottage, which also serves as a lovely bridal suite with tall ceilings, abundant natural light and breathtaking mountain views from two outdoor porches.
