"Romance abounds, making this a perfect place for an intimate weekend escape or an elaborate destination wedding.... The Inn is one of the most beautiful jewels in Virginia, just waiting for you to come and relax, be spoiled, and build sweet memories together." - Southern Bride Magazine (Summer 2012)

Welcome to The Inn at Willow Grove, an elegant boutique hotel in the heart of Virginia wine country. Nestled on a private 40-acre estate in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, our historic 18th century plantation house and surrounding cottages feature eleven rooms and suites with a unique blend of chic and elegant “urban meets plantation” style, exceptional world-class amenities and gracious southern charm. Our critically acclaimed property has enjoyed outstanding reviews from Southern Living Magazine, The Washington Post, Wine Enthusiast, Departures Magazine, DC Magazine, and Washingtonian Magazine, among others.

With spaces that sparkle with candlelight and laughter, The Inn at Willow Grove is the perfect location for your destination wedding. Our wide range of incredibly unique and versatile venues can host your entire weekend’s events, without ever leaving our beautiful Piedmont estate.

The Barn and adjoining Ruins offer approximately 6,400 combined square feet of indoor/outdoor space, which can accommodate up to 190 seated for dinner, even more for cocktails. Clad with custom stonework and painted a signature red, The Barn is a picture of rustic charm. Inside, this 3,100 square-foot state of the art space is exquisite with soaring reclaimed wood ceilings, grand Palladian windows with beautiful wooded views and a massive stone fireplace. French doors leading out to the veranda frame picturesque scenery and provide additional space for cocktails and seating. The adjacent Ruins are the remains of the stone foundation of an antique bank barn building. Surrounded by beautiful hand-restored stone walls, this tented 2,900 square-foot open-air space is the ideal outdoor expansion for any celebration.

The Hall is our more intimate space. With seating for up to 52 guests, this elegant room is decorated with the same chic and artful flair found in the Inn’s rooms and suites, complete with coffered ceiling, modern zinc tables and custom chocolate leather chairs. Surrounded on all sides by french doors leading to the gardens and slate porches, this room is full of sunshine. In stormier weather The Hall is just as lovely; against one wall you will find an immense gas fireplace that infuses the room with warmth and charm.

For your ceremony, the Boxwood Garden is a picture of country elegance. With a brick walkway leading to a custom pergola that is surrounded by century-old boxwoods, towering holly, magnolia and oak trees, and planted with flowers that bloom in white, the Boxwood Garden is a spectacular setting for an outdoor ceremony in any season.

Catering at The Inn at Willow Grove is just as spectacular as the setting. With three different catering packages with plated and stationed options designed by our acclaimed culinary team for the freshest seasonal flavors and three bar packages to select from, our food and beverage packages offer a variety of price points and provide the opportunity for you to create the perfect event, custom-fitted just for you.

My wife and I were married at the Inn at Willow Grove in October. We had a small, private ceremony for just the two of us, but it was in every sense of the word a well orchestrated, beautiful wedding, minus the addition of guests. It was everything we've always wanted and more. Our event planner, Gabrielle, at the Inn at Willow Grove walked us through the entire planning process and stayed with us until the end of the day. She even drove the golf cart for us and our photographer so we could take our photos at different places throughout the property. By the end of the two days, I think we'd found a new friend for life.

It was such a perfect day. It started the day before when we checked into our room in the Master Suite. If you get married at the Inn at Willow Grove, I highly recommend the Master Suite. It has a gorgeous sitting area, a huge bedroom, fireplace, luxury bathroom, and your own private balcony that spans the front of the Inn. You are also assigned a butler the duration of your stay, and he or she takes care of your every need, right down to delivering french press coffee and beignets every morning. There is also no shortage of Prosecco, which we enjoyed immensely.

Dinner was a private dinner for two which included a 5 course tasting menu paired with a variety of wines, not to mention a beautiful 2-tiered wedding cake for two, made specially by the in house French pastry chef, Arnaud. D-E-L-I-C-i-O-U-S!

Our wedding took place outside in the Boxwood Garden with an officiant, and an outstanding guitarist, Peter Richardson. At the end of our stay, we weren't ready to leave. We have such great memories of the Inn at Willow Grove and it's amazing staff and cannot wait to return for our anniversary.

Our wedding at the Inn at Willow Grove was beyond everything we’d ever dreamed. The accommodations themselves were so gorgeous and relaxing, but it was the staff who really made our experience memorable. While Diane and I have long been committed to each other, the possibility of marriage seemed pretty far away in Virginia. So, as you might imagine we had a stream of emotions following the Supreme Court ruling. We knew immediately that we wanted to be married and we knew it had to be at the Inn.

We are proof that a wonderful, private ceremony can be planned in less than two weeks with a little help. Everything came together so beautifully. Aside from the flowers, music, food, and being able to finally wear a wedding dress, the thing that made our wedding so fantastic is that we felt like we were part of the Willow Grove family. Everyone on staff knew who we were and why we were there from the minute we arrived and they absolutely went out of their way to make our experience special. By the time we left, we felt as if we’d just made 10 new friends. Everyone was so excited for us. It’s hard to explain how that made us feel, but it was sincere and we absolutely loved it. We can’t wait to return on our anniversary next October, if we can wait that long. Oh and by the way, who wouldn't want a delicious two tiered wedding cake for two made by a French Pastry Chef! This is the perfect venue for a wedding.

We were so lucky to have found the Inn at Willow Grove for our wedding! From the very second that I opened the Inn's website, I knew this was the place for us. The stars must have been aligned for us since a Fall 2014 date had just opened up, so we immediately scheduled a visit to tour the property. The Inn is a perfect blend of Virginia horse and wine country with a Southern plantation feel, all with a beautiful upscale yet rustic touch. Gabrielle joined the staff at the Inn as the events coordinator a few months later and right away she reached out to introduce herself and make sure everything was on track. She even suggested getting together since she would be in the DC area. It was like having a drink with an old friend - she and I got along so well and had so many things to talk about. Throughout the entire process, Gabrielle was so helpful, always making sure we had thought of every detail. Our tasting was our very favorite part of the planning process - again, it was like hanging out with someone we had known forever! Being a bit of a foodie, I had been impressed with the reviews that I had read early on about the Inn's menus for special events. I was not disappointed - every single thing we tasted was delicious and special, not your typical wedding fare.

One thing that makes the Inn so special is that you have the entire place to yourself and your guests for the wedding weekend. Our family and friends were so excited to experience the feeling that we had described to them after spending a weekend there - the staff is so attentive, always just making sure you have everything you could possibly want or need. Our guests have been raving ever since, saying that ours was the most personal-feeling wedding that they had been to, and I truly think that was thanks to the Inn and its wonderful staff! We highly recommend this beautiful venue for your wedding (or just a weekend away) and cannot wait to go back next year for our anniversary!

From our first meeting with Gabrielle, the event coordinator, through every detail of our wedding day we could not have been more pleased with our experience at Willow Grove. The staff was friendly, helpful, and very professional. The chef's tasting was an amazing culinary experience that our guests really enjoyed. The Inn and the surrounding grounds are such a beautiful setting which provided the perfect backdrop for many beautiful pictures. The Butler's Cottage was very elegant and romantic, just right for our wedding night stay. Gabrielle worked out every detail to create an atmosphere was relaxed and beautiful.

Wow! What an incredible fairytale wedding! We fell in love with the Inn at Willow Grove immediately after searching nearly 20 wedding venues! Nothing could compare to the Inn's unique charm, natural beauty and unparalleled service. My wedding day was flawless, down to the last detail that the amazing staff and owners provided! Not only was the venue beyond perfect but the chef created a five star custom menu that our guests raved about! The 11 on site suites and cottages were the perfect place for our friends and family to stay. Having the entire Inn to ourselves made our wedding weekend completely magical!

Wow. My wife and I couldn't believe how perfect the weekend was and we would not have changed a thing - and we know that everyone at the Inn was a major force in making it happen. Everyone from Stephen taking our friends to Sheetz late night, to Matt helping out behind the bar at the reception, to Carlos and Lisa being so friendly and helping out at the late night bar with a smile, was terrific. The family feeling that one gets in staying at the Inn radiates among the staff and is palpable and warming. The excitement everyone working there had for the festivities was infectious and refreshing. We really felt that everyone was wishing us well, enjoying themselves, and willing to help whenever they were asked. It was truly a blessing to have Alice (the coordinator) and the Inn as part of our wedding celebrations!
Soooooo, if you want a family run place with a 5 star hotel feel, food that could be a hit anywhere in the world, the perfect mix of a historic colonial-era building and modern amenities, all wrapped up in a beautiful setting, Willow Grove is your place.
Just go for lunch or dinner at Vintage to get a feel for the place....you won't be disappointed!
