Yours for the day or a full weekend, delight in exclusive use of this beautiful, luxuriant property overlooking verdant Blue Ridge Mountain forests. The Clifton graciously holds its crown among Charlottesville’s finest wedding venues, shining with sophisticated elegance and thoughtful contemporary touches.
Built in the late 18th century for Thomas Jefferson's daughter, this seminal estate stretches across 100 acres and features The Clifton Colonial Revival Manor House, an intimate secret garden and prestigious croquet lawn edged by blooming gardens. Dance under the moon on the outdoor deck or call on the grand court tent nestled in the forest just beyond a tranquil waterfall.
Stay onsite and invite your beloved to unwind among richly appointed suites and cottages. Attentive details shape the fairytale experience down to the crystal glassware and copper wash tent lighting and throughout butler-attended regional wine and hors d'oeuvres. Celebrations flow seamlessly from sun-drenched Veranda welcome receptions and infinity pool cocktail hours to a candle-lit rehearsal dinner in the Library and a striking wedding ceremony followed by your first party as a married couple. Roll right into a farewell brunch the next day and begin your journey together surrounded by your closest friends and family.
