Book the entire farm for your Charlottesville area wedding, extended family gathering, anniversary party, retreat or other special event. NOTE: The Pavilion must also be booked for weddings and other party events, at extra cost explained in the rates section. The Pavilion is your reception site, and includes tables, chairs, ceremony site, dressing rooms, caterer's warming kitchen, etc.
Wolf Trap Farm features panoramic views of mountains, pastures, horses and cattle, miles of board fencing and beautiful woodlands full of trails. The farm complex is a Virginia Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Manor House is at the heart of the farm complex, and features 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, two kitchens, a large patio and boxwood garden. Nestled behind the Manor House is the 1856 Servants' Cottage, with its huge covered patio. Just down the hill is the Pond House, a more contemporary cottage overlooking a pond full of bass, bream, frogs and turtles. The Milker's Cottage is just beyond the Pavilion. Renovated in 2015, it has two bedrooms, two baths and a large screened porch. Past the Milker's Cottage is the driveway to Baldy's retreat, a "tricked out" modular with modern styling that sleeps 13. There is also a Barn Apartment, and the Cox Mill House. The entire farm is truly idyllic, with horses and cattle as part of your scenery.
The Charlottesville area, with its stunning scenery, many wineries, and historic sites such as Monticello, Montpelier, and rural historic districts, has become a top choice for weddings and other special gatherings. Wolf Trap Farm hosts over 50 weddings each year, plus family reunions, anniversary parties, and big family vacations. If you do not need all the houses, we can offer you the package you want so long as it does not interfere with our week-end (Friday & Saturday) wedding packages.
Our Pavilion is enclosed on three sides, accommodates 150 under roof and has an overflow patio that can seat another 40 - 50, and has a stage and ample dance floor. There is an oversized ladies' dressing/bathroom, men's bathroom, and a caterer's warming kitchen. Our hilltop ceremony site is just behind the Pavilion.
All ages are happy at the farm. The little ones play in the great outdoors, the oldsters stroll the grounds, the teenagers and young adults go on excursions on or off the farm, the guys can fish or play pool, the gals can soak in the hot tub, and the dogs are particularly happy.
If you have ever driven the winding country roads around Charllottesville, admiring the beautiful estates and wondering what it would be like to visit such places, perhaps for a wedding or party, here is your opportunity.
