There are an overwhelming abundance of venues in Charlottesville to choose from but after lots of research we went with Castle Hill Cider because it offered us the most diversity when planning our wedding. It is a beautiful white barn surrounded by flawless countryside with a blank slate for the inside - giving the bride & groom the chance to make their reception their own. We got to choose everything down to the tables, chairs, lighting, dance floor, decor etc. We loved that we had so many options compared to other venues where you are required to use their planner, caterer, tables, chairs etc. There are a few different ceremony sites to choose from too (including a great rain plan in the loft of the barn) but the most special is under the Linden trees where we said our vows :) While having so many decisions to make was overwhelming it really allowed us to make our day unique. When it came to our big day we knew we had chosen all of the things that made it really feel like us down to every detail.

Evelyn, the event coordinator at Castle Hill, went above and beyond to help us plan our day. She helps not just with the venue tasks but also with planning lunch for the girls while they are getting ready (in the awesome bridal loft with a private deck/patio area) and she personally arranged and lit lanterns to illuminate the outside of the barn for after cocktail hour. She is quick to respond to emails and overall a pleasure to work with.

We are so pleased we chose Castle Hill for our ceremony & reception venue and it will be so fun to keep going back there years from now to enjoy the scenery and cider!

Castle Hill Cider in Keswick, VA is, without a doubt, the most wonderful, full service, wedding and reception venue in the state of Viriginia, possibly on the entire eastern seaboard. The setting is absolutely stunning and the drive from Charlottesville, VA up Gordonsville Road to Castle Hill Cider put all of our guests in the perfect wedding mind set, relexed and ready to celebrate..

This awesome venue is surrounded by beautiful mountains, valleys, orchards, lots of green grass and huge huge trees. Castle Hill Cider is set on a farm that is far away from any type of signage, advertising or noise, and it is only a ten mile drive from the beautiful city of Charlottesville, VA. The setting is quiet and peaceful, perfect for a wedding celebration.

The venue is virtually brand new and looks new and fresh. It has a state of the art HVAC system recently installed, which kept all the guests and wedding party members very cool and comfortable. The upstairs wedding chapel is perfect for all your guests and creates a setting right out of a bridal magazine. There is also a beautiful outside wedding venue lined with a grove of beautiful old trees, and an awesome setting for the arrival of the bride in her chariot of choice for all the guests to see..The reception was held just downstairs below the chapel in the grand ball room, so there is no need for guests to drive after arriving at Castle Hill Cider. By the way, there is plenty of parking near the venue. There are simply no hassles in using Castle Hill Cider.

The wonderful staff at Castle Hill Cider is always available to assist you in any way you may need. They worked very well with our wedding planner and the entire event could not have been more satisfying.

This is a can't miss wedding venue and we will be forever grateful to Evelyn and Trevor at Castle Hill Cider for making this the perfect wedding experience.

If you are looking for a beautiful venue for a wedding, look no further! Castle Hill Cider is absolutely stunning. We recently held our daughter's wedding here and everyone was blown away by the beauty of it. Their on site wedding coordinator Evelyn was so nice and accommodating and we really enjoyed working with her and our own planner to make the wedding memorable for my daughter. I cannot say enough about how wonderful and amazing it was to have my daughter's wedding at Castle Hill Cider. They are first rate from start to finish and I couldn't have been more pleased.

Castle Hill Cider was a perfect selection for my recent wedding! Many of our 200 wedding guests enamored with the site and had described it to be the most beautiful wedding they had attended. I think we were asked by every person how we found the place. It was a perfect fit for our dream wedding. We enjoyed the area and we even brought our dog for our final walk through. We loved that it was dog friendly and we had the option of including our little puppy in our day. The pictures that have come in have been absolutely beautiful.

Thank you Castle Hill for all your help!

This is an absolutely beautiful spot for an outdoor wedding. Many of our 200 wedding guests thought it was the most beautiful wedding they have attended. They all wanted to know how we were lucky enough to have found Castle Hill. One of the wedding planners we contacted online, recommended it. The barn is big enough for guests and we did hire a separate vendor to really decorate and decorate they did! Since we were from out -of- town, we asked the folks at Castle Hill to recommend vendors needed for food and all. Everyone they recommended did a great job of fulfilling our needs. We used many vendors and were pleased with their work. It is not an inexpensive venue, nor were the venders inexpensive, but if you want a beautiful once in a lifetime wedding, this venue came through. We were so happy we chose Castle Hill! We were worried about not having any air-conditioning in the barn for the reception. We rented through one of our vendors huge fans and they helped. However, we were very lucky that on the evening of our wedding the air had cooled down due to a brief shower before the ceremony which made the weather very comfortable. The ceremony was held outside in the beautiful Linden Grove and then we enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the outside terrace area off of the tasting room. A really beautiful area for cocktails. Later we all were ushered inside for the dinner.

When I thought about my wedding, I knew I wanted to do it in a barn. I live in California, my parents live in Virginia, and my husband's family lives in Seattle - so we had a lot of options for where we might have our wedding, and we looked EVERYwhere. From the moment I pulled through the gate at Castle Hill, I knew I was going to be married there. It is absolutely stunning - from the grounds, to the tasting room, to the barn itself - and working with Evelyn made the entire experience a breeze. She is beyond friendly, extremely helpful, professional, and a pleasure to work with. Our wedding day was pure magic, and our guests can't stop talking about our venue. Thank you Castle Hill and Thank you Evelyn. We look forward to dropping in at Castle Hill whenever we are in town - and refilling our supply of delicious cider!!

i had my wedding reception outdoors on the historic Castle Hill Cider property in the spring of 2012. it was the most beautiful event i have ever been to. the grounds were perfectly maintained and they were so detailed and accommodating. they went out of their way to make sure we were happy with our event and no stone was left unturned....spraying for ticks and mosquitos so we wouldn't have to worry about bugs, mowing the grass to our liking, meeting us for numerous on-site visits, tastings, etc. i was blown away by how incredible it all was....and on the most picturesque backdrop i could have imagined. not to mention how wonderful john and evelyn were to work with. i'm happy to now call them both friends. a truly fabulous experience! xo
