Incredible Staff and Venue
I was married at the Lodge and I couldn't have asked for a better venue! Not only were the on site staff extremely friendly, but they were available for our entire weekend stay. We did the mini destination package and our families rented two additional houses for a 3 day weekend. Tracy was available for any of our questions that weekend and Matt was phenomenal with any maintenance or on site help we needed as well. Mount Ida also has remote staff that worked with us and were available during the entire planning process. I did not have to set up, take down or put away a single thing the entire weekend and especially the day of. Mount Ida is worth every single penny and then some. We will forever be getting compliments on how relaxed the staff was day of as well as the horses and exceptionally gorgeous property. We can't wait to continue to visit and drink wine at their taproom too!Sent on 04/24/2019

Perfect views and memories.
We had our wedding here in October 2019. It was like a setting out of a dream! The staff definitely has some rules that you should be familiar with in the contract, but nothing that hinders a good party! Easily accessible by busses from central Charlottesville. Worth the spacious insides and gorgeous views.
We had a beautiful setting, beautiful view, and spacious area. The separate dinning, dancing, and out door area left enough space for guests to spread out and find their own little nooks. We got compliments from so many guests that this venue was the perfect Charlottesville venue!Sent on 12/27/2019

The perfect venue!
My husband and I got married at Mount Ida on 9/21 and it was absolutely perfect! We fell in love with the venue the moment we first walked into the Event Barn. Then when we saw the Gazebo we were sold. We stayed the weekend at the Manor House with our parents and bridal party. It was so fun spending the whole weekend together. All our guests loved the venue and talked about how beautiful everything was. I highly recommend Mount Ida.Sent on 10/17/2019
Mount Ida Farm's reply:Thank you so much, Martha!! We loved having your group stay with us all weekend. Can't wait to see the photos!
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.
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!
Great venue! Beautiful setting, lovely people...beautiful for outdoor ceremony.
