History

Hermitage Farm has been a working equine farm since the early 1800s. It was originally purchased by Captain John Henshaw, who modeled the Main House after his family home in Virginia. In 1936, the estate was purchased by the Jones family, who brought fame to the farm when Warner Jones used the land to breed winners of the Breeders' Cup, Kentucky Derby, and Kentucky Oaks. Following a visit from Queen Elizabeth II, the farm was purchased by Carl Polland. Carl owned the land for 16 years before he sold the historic farm to current owners Laura Lee and Steve.

    Timeless and Unforgettable Experience

    We got married on 9/21/2019 at Hermitage and had an amazing experience. The grounds are so stunning that only minimal decorations are needed for your own personal touch. We had the ceremony on the front steps with a musician playing music on the porch above and the setting was just perfect. If there are more than 5 people in your bridal party it may be difficult to all squeeze up on the porch but it makes for a great setting. The concrete pad that is poured out back makes it so there is no need to rent a dance floor. It was also a huge bonus that we had 6 rooms so we could have the bridal party stay at Hermitage and save on hotel rooms. Meredith was a pleasure to work with and I could tell she cared about us having a pleasant experience. Erika was also great to have and made sure everything went smooth for the house guests. Overall I would recommend Hermitage to anyone looking for a venue.

    We LOVED having our wedding weekend at Hermitage Farm. The house was gorgeous and well-kept throughout the weekend, and Ashleigh was always kind and easy to communicate with. It's definitely a pricey venue, but we were able to host all of our festivities there (from Rehearsal Dinner to getting ready day-of), which made it worth it. It was truly a dream to get married here!
