A Gorgeous Historic Hotel

Situated on 80 acres in historic Staunton, this boutique hotel and conference center speaks to couples seeking white-glove hospitality and service alongside beautiful elegant ambiance. Drink in rolling Virginia hills, intimate nooks and comfortable onsite lodging and choose from three wedding packages: Indoor, Outdoor or Intimate.

Indoor weddings sing among historic architecture and period charm and include ceremony and reception chairs and tables, bistro lighting, china, flatware and glassware, linens, centerpieces and discounted room rates for guests. Embracing the front lawn's gentle hills and stately fountains, outdoor weddings flourish under willow trees. The outdoor wedding package covers everything from a grand event tent to linens, china and in-house centerpieces. Lodging options span dozens of room layouts original to the 1828 property.

The spectacular Great Hall combines historic details with modern amenities along with lots of natural light pouring in from the windowed wall. Simplistic with minimal design, the modern Gallery 1828 is transformable for large ceremonies and receptions. Photo opps abound around the artful 1877 gazebo and opulent fountains and the surrounding lush lawn welcomes outdoor ceremonies and receptions along with tenting options. Intimate weddings are at home in the two-story penthouse with a rooftop deck overlooking scenic downtown Staunton.

Things To Do

Charlottesville is home to thriving orchards, farms, and more than 40 wineries that inspire unforgettable restaurant experiences. Hiking in Shenandoah National Park, renowned river kayaking, and championship golf offer thrills while a celebrated theater and local live music scene entertain. Our stages are well stocked with highly coveted acts. In fact, Charlottesville is where Dave Matthews Band and Coran Capshaw's Red Light Management — the largest independent music management company in the world — got their start. For a taste of history, Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, James Madison’s Montpelier, and James Monroe’s Highland offer guided glimpses into the Founding Fathers’ legacies.
