STOP!!! Don't look anywhere else!!! Greatest venue EVER!Sent on 11/14/2012
Wow, what an amazing venue. We were nervous having our wedding outside in November. But we lucked out with sunny skies and 60 degree weather. In case of bad weather, they have a great indoor option as well.
Approximately 200 of our guests sat on top of the hill overlooking the mountains of Virginia. After the ceremony, our guests made their way into the Fox Den (on the same property) for appetizer hour and entertainment. Dinner followed and the night went on. Oh! And we had our rehearsal dinner at The Fox Den the night before our wedding as well and they let us put up decorations for the next day.
Charlotte and Henrietta were such great people to work with. Their calming personalities ensured we would have a great wedding. They responded quickly and were always ready and provided us anything we needed. Dan was great ensuring they would work with our budget.
We did a lot of research, (probably like you right now :) ) and we are so happy and blessed with our decision. Million dollar views, amazing staff members, rooms for your guests and cottage for the wedding couple to stay in over night all for an extremely good price. I would book before someone takes your date!

Briar Patch was the perfect place for our 160 guest wedding. We chose to use the venue from Friday to Sunday, the property is beautiful and had lots of options for rehearsal dinner space, ceremony space and more. The team is helpful and responsive with any questions you may have. It was amazing to be able to stay in one spot the whole weekend and the team lets you create the atmosphere you want. Can not recommend enough.Sent on 09/02/2019

Great and intimate venue!
This was the first and only venue we scoped out. Great accommodation options, awesome ceremony options (inside and outside) and an incredible reception area with everything you would need. Ellen and Dan have all the contacts and information and equipment to make your wedding a spectacular success and not to mention a huge amount of fun on your special day. I would highly recommend them to anyone.Sent on 07/30/2019
Briar Patch is a great supportive venue if you are inviting children. They have a terrific side room that is close by and they also allow for caregivers to go to the inn as it gets later in the evening to a quieter space to help the children settle down for the evening. The bedroom floor plan is also convenient to monitor things as they children sleep while their parents continue to have a good time with the other adults at the reception. We have found Ellen and Dan and their entire team to be very supportive of our needs as caregivers as well. They have been great mentors for us in other ways too. This is a great family friendly venue in very beautiful country setting.
I have had numerous weddings at Briar Patch not to mention gone myself. What a fabulous place to celebrate a huge event like your wedding or a small memory like an anniversary.
Beautiful venue, with many beautiful spots for your outdoor ceremony (and a lovely indoor space - "just in case"). Dan, Ellen and Henriette are delightful to work with and will make you feel right at home.
