"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.

Our son was married at the Inn in June 2016. We thought it would be a spectacular event on our very first visit to the property but all our expectations were met or greatly surpassed!
Gabrielle was our coordinator- through out the planning process, up to the day of the wedding & even past the event. She worked very hard to make sure everything happened according to plan. Gabrielle was always prompt & very responsive. She offered her expertise, advise & assistance. Gabrielle was very kind & extremely easy to work with. She assisted us in planning the evening for the rehearsal dinner. The success of that set the tone for the rest of the wedding weekend.
Staying on the property was luxurious! All the accommodations were lovely. Guests who stayed on the property were impressed with their rooms, as well as with the service.
Since the wedding, we continue to tell people about the wedding. We tell them what a grand event it was, thanks in large part to the Inn, Gabrielle & the entire staff.

The Inn at Willow Grove is a gorgeous venue! That is evident to anyone who sees it. However, the real beauty is in the impeccable service provided by the staff at The Inn. Our daughter was married there in June of 2016 and the entire weekend was nothing short of magical! We worked closely with Gabrielle, the Director of Private Events, for over a year planning the event and could not have been happier with the outcome. Gabrielle was friendly, attentive, professional, and calm. She was patient and supportive during the planning process and invaluable handling details as the on-site coordinator the day of the wedding. The wedding party and family stayed onsite at the property during the wedding weekend and were all treated like royalty by the staff. Everyone seemed genuinely eager to make our stay special. The food at The Inn was superb. We had many opportunities to enjoy it - at our rehearsal dinner in the Hall, during the wedding reception in the Barn, at the after party in the Pub, and at brunch the morning after the wedding in the Vintage restaurant. Each experience was top notch. Two other folks deserve a special mention. Michele, the Guest Services Manager, greeted us as we arrived on Friday at The Inn, accommodated our special requests, and ensured each overnight guest was comfortably settled in. After we arrived home after the weekend and realized we’d left a pair of glasses, she was able to find and return them to us. Wednesday, the Restaurant Manager, was also exceptionally friendly, approachable, and helpful throughout the weekend. Thank you all for making this an unforgettable event, not just for the bride and groom, but for our entire family and every guest in attendance!

The Inn at Willow Grove was the gorgeous setting for our perfect winter wedding!! As a couple planning a Virginia wedding from New York City, we knew that we needed to find a venue that was responsive and comprehensive in its approach to planning weddings. The Inn was our first venue visit and from the first moment we met Gabrielle, the events coordinator, we knew that it would be hard to find a venue that fit us better than the Inn at Willow Grove.
Gabrielle is a true gem, not only as an event coordinator, but also as a person. She immediately seems like an old friend that you’ve known for years and has a calming, warm presence that every bride desires to be surrounded by on her wedding day. Throughout the entire planning process, we were able to email, call, or visit the property with any questions and she ensured that everything ran smoothly. We are so grateful for Gabrielle’s amazing work!
The IWG not only provided a stunning reception area in the renovated barn and tented ruins, but they also ensured an incredible reception dinner, bar service, an after party in the Pub with sliders & pizza, turn down treats in our rooms, and more! We were able to spend the entire weekend surrounded by our family and friends and every cottage/ room available was filled with those we love! Our vendors were so impressed with the helpful and accommodating staff and our friends and family loved every moment of the evening from the food to the flow of the reception events.
Thank you so much to everyone at The Inn at Willow Grove!

My husband and I had our wedding at the Inn at Willow Grove a week ago and everyone is still glowing from the experience. The IWG’s venues are incredibly picturesque and the staff are the nicest people we could have ever worked with. Matt, Greg and Michelle made sure that we were always taken care of. Our guests were so impressed by both the food – from the wedding catering to the lovely beignets and chocolate that we received in our rooms at night – as well as the service. The staff was so thoughtful; they even brought dinner to beautiful and cozy master suite after our wedding, in case we did not have anytime to eat.

I would also like to recognize the IWG’s events coordinator Gabrielle Chavigny, IWG’s. From the time we met her, we knew we had to get married there! She is one of the most friendly, helpful, calm and experienced wedding planners out there. She is incredibly thoughtful with every since wedding detail. More importantly, when you work with her, you feel like you have a friend guiding you every step of the way. We are so happy to have worked with Gabrielle and cannot wait to go back!!!

We chose the Inn at Willow Grove after searching all around the greater Charlottesville area for the perfect wedding venue. For our wedding of 135, we wanted a place where we could spend time with our guests the entire weekend and we could enjoy the beauty of Virginia! IWG was perfect- once our guests arrived, they had no need to go anywhere else! We rented all 14 rooms at the Inn. Our rehearsal dinner was held in the beautiful Hall and our wedding ceremony was in The Boxwood Gardens, followed by dinner and dancing in the Barn and Ruins. We even took it a step further and had an after-party in The Pub inside their Vintage Restaurant. Our guests did not stop raving about the beauty of the venue, the delicious food, and how nice it was to stay in one place for everything! It felt like it was our place for the weekend and helped us get the intimate feel that we wanted. Many guests even returned on Sunday to enjoy brunch at the restaurant!
The staff at IWG is exceptional. Gabrielle (the Director of Special Events) was available by phone or e-mail and even at times when we dropped by in person. She is experienced and calm. Before, during, and even after our events she was there to make sure everything ran smoothly and we got what we wanted! She met with some of our vendors who weren't familiar with the property prior to the event and even did extra work during the event to make sure things were done properly! The other staff is so welcoming and attentive- we felt pampered all weekend!
Finally, one of the main reasons we chose IWG is because we fell in love with the food. Everything from our rehearsal dinner to our reception was done by IWG and the guests loved it all! They were also flexible with us when we wanted to do something special for desserts and add some extra items to our open bar package.
Overall, I cannot say enough great things about the Inn at Willow Grove and all they did to make our entire wedding weekend magical! We will be back!

A beautiful experience from beginning to end...I fell in love with the Inn at Willow Grove the minute I saw it last Spring and knew it would be the perfect setting for our son's rehearsal dinner. The Inn is beautifully decorated and landscaped throughout. From our first meeting with Gabrielle (Private Events Director) to the end of the dinner held May 1, 2015 , our family was treated with true professionalism and courtesy. Gabrielle is so well-suited for her job and is extremely generous with her time and expertise. I relied on her for ideas and suggestions to make the evening special for our guests . The evening was lovely. From the cocktail hour on the slate patio and surrounding grounds, to the dinner inside of The Hall, Matt (GM) and the staff met our every expectation. Gabrielle was there too, to insure any special instructions were followed perfectly. Their flexibility with the menu, wine and space made our evening one that our family will always treasure. Our family stayed in The Inn Friday night and were so impressed with the beauty and comfort of the rooms. We all enjoyed the coffee and delicious beignets the next morning.

My husband and I chose the Inn at Willow Grove after searching most of the Eastern U.S. and Canada for an exceptional, elegant, and welcoming location. We were looking for someplace that would provide for our accommodations, ceremony and reception. One year in advance we were able to reserve 13 of the 14 suites. Unfortunately, the Master Suite was already booked, but the Butlers Cabin more than made up for it! Having access to our guest’s rooms, we can honestly say that all of the rooms are well-designed, stylish, and chic. However, with a wedding attendance of 42 (which we increased after we had already booked), we did have to reserve several rooms at nearby hotels (which also book up early!). We had our ceremony in the beautiful Boxwood gardens with our own officiant. The weather cooperated in glorious autumnal splendor, and to the accompaniment of a trio of hired musicians (guitar, violin, and bass), our ceremony was truly magical. After the ceremony, while we were escorted around the beautiful grounds for photos, our guests retired to the nearby patio behind the inn for cocktails. As the sun began to set, and the temperature started to cool, the fire pit, the patio heaters, and of course, the beverages, kept everyone warm! We rented the cozy and elegant reception hall, which had plenty of room for our 42 guests. With the fireplace, candles, and decorations providing a relaxed ambiance, we all settled in to a magnificent five-course meal prepared by the sophisticated and talented Inn Chef and staff. Music was provided by our iPad which was channeled in over the Inn’s Bose sound system.
My husband and I were able to focus entirely on our guests due to the extremely capable efforts of our wedding planner Mallory Joyce, and the wedding coordinator for the Inn, Gabrielle Chavigny. Also instrumental were the efforts of Matt Scibal, the manager for the Inn, as well as Lisa, the catering manager, but we want to thank the entire staff and eagerly look forw

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!
