My husband and I got married at Castle Hill past June, and honestly we couldn't have dreamed up a more beautiful setting. Set against the Blue Mountains, and on a gorgeous estate, Castle Hill beauty comes from its elegant architecture and the natural beauty of its estate, which creates a unique atmosphere. Our guests couldn't stop raving at how gorgeous it was! And with Virginia weather, it was so handy to have both air conditioning and a gorgeous loft (came in handy on our wedding day!) that is just has gorgeous as the outside setting.Sent on 09/23/2015
But what makes the venue are the people. Since we first stumbled upon Castle Hill during a cider tasting tour, we were wowed by the staff who were so warm and friendly. We loved working with the event coordinator, Evelyn, who really went above and beyond in making our day special. Case in point: our Bernese Mountain Dog, who was our "ring bear", was terribly upset by the thunder and lightening storm that broke out during our reception. Evelyn and the staff hung out with the pup too keep him calm, and allowed us to continue to enjoy the night. There were many instances where they went above and beyond - this is just one of them! I would totally recommend working with them.

A True Fairytale
Words can't even come close to describing how magical this venue is. It truly felt like we were entering an enchanted forest the night of our wedding. The staff there is incredible (as is the cider!) Another huge perk was the size -- we were able to comfortably fit our very large number of guests, with enough room to dance the night away!Sent on 11/20/2018

GET MARRIED HERE! If you want a wedding in a beautiful barn with help from the best event planner ever who will make sure you are beyond happy with every little thing then this is your place. Evelyn Keyes makes sure Castle Hill Cider looks perfect including the moment you turn on the road to every last inch of the barn. It is truly the best experience I had had and know from other friends who have gotten married elsewhere that it is stressful and very tough. Not here! Beautiful, very planned out, throughout with the day of schedules, and just absolutely stunning from every angle. HIGHLY recommend!Sent on 06/15/2016
