About Clifton Inn LLC

The Clifton is Charlottesville’s premier boutique hotel, restaurant and wedding venue. We offer luxury amenities and exceptional service on 100 acres of pristine Virginia countryside. Our newly renovated property has been mentioned in Architectural Digest and Robb Report. Offering a modern twist on the historic property.

The Clifton Colonial Revival Manor House, built in the late eighteenth century, at the behest of Thomas Mann Randolph and his wife, Martha Jefferson Randolph, Thomas Jefferson's daughter. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the estate officially received the name, "Clifton", by the Wyatt family. The Clifton was painstakingly renovated in the late twentieth century to become an indelible treasure in Charlottesville, Virginia, including the transformation of historic dependencies on the estate: the Livery Stables, Carriage House, Garden Cottages, and The Collina farmhouse into additional guest accommodations. With historic charm, breathtaking views and modern, yet elegant sophistication, The Clifton has become one of the most iconic wedding venues in Virginia.


Enjoy the offerings of our Executive Chef’s seasonal menus, featuring the bounty of our own organic garden. To accompany your meal, the Wine Cellar is stocked with Virginia’s most celebrated wines along with an extensive selection of global vintages. Our professionally trained staff will provide anticipatory service from your guests check in to check out.

    The Staff Were Amazing and Helpful Venue Space BEAUTIFUL

    I cannot rave enough about how amazing the staff at The Clifton Inn were for my entire wedding process. My newly husband and I planned for a wedding in Paris, France for over a year and half and cancelled due to COVID. We first stayed at The Clifton for what would have been our wedding weekend in May 2020 and fell in love with the beautiful venue, delicious food and wonderful staff. The staff members knew we had to cancel our wedding and they surprised us with a bottle of champagne in our rooms with a note written in french. We decided to book this venue with for our September 12th wedding date and worked very closely with Phyllis who went above and beyond in helping us make our wedding day special and easy. Phyllis was very attentive to all our questions and needs, assisted in all the setup of the venue and worked very closely with us during our rehearsal for the big day! Also a huge shoutout to Stephanie, Maggie and Liz who also went above and beyond with accommodating our guests to their needs, always being cheerful and accommodating as well as providing everyone a great experience for not only our wedding but our weekend getaway there. The view of the Blue ridge mountains were spectacular to have as a backdrop for our ceremony, the infinity pool with the cabanas was a great place to relax and looked beautiful for where our cocktail hour was located. All the rooms were unique and upgraded. I cant wait to go back soon!

    Absolutely Stunning

    We had the absolutely most magical wedding weekend at The Clifton! Brianna, Maggie, and all of the staff were so accommodating and truly tailored our weekend to our needs. They eased the planning process and made a lot of magic happen! Brianna was so sweet to work with and I felt like she listened to our vision. She was present the weekend of and she ensured everything was in working order. When we ordered a box of sparklers that showed up empty the day before the wedding, she personally pulled strings to find sparklers for our exit! This meant so much as those last minute details can make or break a bride! We are so grateful to have had such a beautiful venue and professional team. Our guests loved the accommodations and thought everything was more than perfect. We cannot wait to return for anniversaries and special events!

    Oh my goodness! The Clifton Inn is simply gorgeous...breathtaking! For the joyful, romantic, classic bride, Clifton Inn has everything you could want, all with gorgeous views!

  • Virginia Schweninger, Harpist Wedding Musicians

    When I play my harp for events at the Clifton Inn, I'm always impressed with their seamless coordination of every tiny detail while family and guests themselves from beginning to end!

  • Wedding Preacher for Hire Wedding Officiants

    I am a wedding officiant and I officiate at over 50 weddings a season. Clifton Inn stands out of all the many venues I frequent. The staff is on task. Clifton has it's own wedding coordinator, too, which means a lot. There is one person who knows the venue inside and out, and can act as interface between the couple getting married, the guests, the wedding party, and the establishment. The grounds of course, are beautiful to behold, and well maintained. I have not eaten a meal there, but the hors d'oeuvres are fabulous--as is the wine. I
