About Mount Ida Farm

Situated just south of Charlottesville, Virginia, Mount Ida Farm is a rustic wedding venue. This property spans 5,000 acres and includes a vineyard, manor houses, and charming cottages. Here, to-be-weds and their guests can marvel at views of the Blue Ridge Mountains while they celebrate the milestone occasion. Here, luxury amenities are combined with the natural beauty of the landscape to create a breathtaking backdrop to your festivities. Ceremonies and receptions can be hosted here for a convenient event venue. It is also a popular destination for romantic elopements. The property is located close to the cities of Charlottesville and Richmond and offers on-site accommodations for out-of-town guests.

Facilities and Capacity

Mount Ida Farm offers to-be-weds a selection of four different event spaces to choose from. The Event Barn, which sits beside a lake, offers a dash of rustic charm. It is accessed through a private gated entrance and covers 8,500 square feet. A renovated cattle barn, it was intentionally designed as a reception venue. Inside this structure, couples will find two get-ready rooms, a large outdoor patio, and a catering kitchen. The Lodge, meanwhile, boasts stunning mountain views. To-be-weds can exchange vows in a scenic mountain grove before dancing the night away under chandeliers and wooden beams. It covers 12,000 square feet and has 30 foot-high ceilings. This structure opens onto a wooden deck with two antique fountains. It also contains a private get-ready room. Wedding vendors will appreciate the convenient prep kitchen and loading spaces for delivering rentals. Couples who have envisioned a lakeside ceremony are invited to the Water's Edge. Here, they can choose from a pavilion that overlooks the lake or the Old Red Barn. This barn includes two get-ready suites for the couple to use and a kitchen for culinary staff. Each unique space at this venue is surrounded by hundreds of acres of fields, ensuring an air of exclusivity no matter which one you choose.

Services Offered

Mount Ida Farm offers various packages to help support to-be-weds as they coordinate their milestone day. Some of the features of these packages include a shuttle service to bring guests to the chosen event site, as well as tables and chairs. Some of the spaces are also outfitted with custom lighting that you can design to suit your taste and decor scheme. Every setting is also equipped with heating and air conditioning, so couples and their guests can stay comfortable no matter the season.

    Beautiful venue with incredible staff

    From our initial tour at Mt. Ida in January 2020 (before COVID19 came to North America) to our wedding in April 2021 (a year into COVID19), the team at Mt. Ida has been a dream to work with. Those 15 months were fraught with uncertainty and constant change, yet the team remained communicative, accomodating and flexible. We had a delicious rehearsal dinner at the Tasting Room & Taphouse, an amazing two-night stay at Mt. Ida Manor, a beautiful ceremony at the lakeside Gazebo and a wonderful cocktail hour and reception at the Event Barn.

    In particular, we would like to give shout outs to Bronwyn and Kim. Whenever we have questions, Bronwyn was incredibly responsive (ie we would hear back from her within a day) and professional with her communication. In addition, Kim served as an excellent intermediary between Mt. Ida's owner, the management team and us. She proposed feasible and reasonable solutions to problems posed by changes in the state's gathering recommendations/restrictions. In all, we couldn't ask for a better or more beautiful venue for our wedding weekend, nor could we ask for a better team to handle it.

    Mount Ida Farm is such a gorgeous venue! I love having the opportunity to photograph there and utilize the many unique locations that highlight the best this area has to offer. The ceremony spot is spectacular with the gazebo and overlook of the pond while the reception space ties in the rustic farm feel. This venue is perfect for the families as well since they can chose to rent out houses and stay on location. I especially enjoy working with Milicent and her staff as they are always so helpful and supportive during wedding days.

  • Amanda's Touch Bridal & Formal Wedding Dresses

    Mount Ida is an absolutely stunning place, we have had some photo shoots here for a spread in a wedding magazine with our dresses and it is just soooo beautiful!

  • Jewish Heart and Soul—Rabbi-Cantor Annie Bornstein Wedding Officiants
