About

I Do With A View...a stunning, rural farm venue

Fairhill Farm Country Vacation Rentals consists of two adjoining farms comprising over 270 acres with magnificent views of Blue Ridge Mountains. Our Fairhill Farm has an engineered and landscaped tent site with spectacular, panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains with access to power and water, ample lighted parking and two stunning sites for ceremonies. It will accommodate up to 150 guests. The elegant, brilliant white, pole tent offers a striking contrast to the lush beauty of the hillside.

Our adjacent High Fields Farm with its own breathtaking views is an ideal location for intimate gatherings or weddings of up to 30 guests.

Whether an unsurpassed wedding, a sunset dinner under tent; a lovely cocktail reception by the pool; a rehearsal dinner on the expansive decks; an intimate brunch; or a gourmet meal in front of a glowing fire, we will help you create a memorable event! We are a 30 minute drive north of Charlottesville and 2 hours southwest of DC area.

Meet the owner.

The career of your host, Amb Alton Keel, ranged from Assistant Secretary of the Air Force; to National Security Adviser to the President; to Amb to NATO; to investment banker. He ‘escaped’ Washington, DC in 1999 to become a ‘gentleman’ farmer in the stunning Virginia countryside nestled against the Blue Ridge Mountains. He established Fairhill Farm Country Vacation Rentals in 2004 and in 2006, he created an idyllic wedding site with breathtaking mountain views on his Fairhill Farm estate for his daughter’s wedding. In 2012 he was persuaded to share selectively this venue with the public. He does so for 4-6 events a year with the same care and attention that he gave to his daughter

    If you're looking for beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and helpful, welcoming staff, then Fairhill Farm is the place for you. My fiancé and I took our engagement pictures here on October 17th and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. The pictures are gorgeous! John and Alton were so great to work with! I would definitely recommend Fairhill Farm for your wedding, engagement shoot, or a weekend getaway. Can't wait to go back for another visit!

    Fairhill Farm is definitely the place to get married if you're looking for beautiful views! The scenery is spectacular! Mr. Keel is a joy to work with! He helps with rentals of the tent, tables, chairs, and linen; as a bride you need all the help you can get! They helped give us the wedding of our dreams. My husband and I are forever grateful for Mr. Keel and help and Fairhill Farm.

    Wonderful venue. This was the perfect place for my wedding. I wanted a country wedding that was still elegant and under a budget. Alton and Fairhill Farm was perfect. Very helpful venue and one of the first places we toured that made you feel like not just another couple. The views were great and we had a blast. I would def. recommend the farm. I still am hearing that we had one of the most beautiful and fun weddings...we couldn't have done it without this venue and Alton!

    Fairhill Farm's reply:

    Thanks, Paula for kind review. It was a pleasure having you and Mike choose Fairhill Farm Country Vacation Rentals for your wedding venue. You were a stunning bride and your wedding was beautiful as evidenced by the 'Paula and Mike' photo album that we posted on web site.
