About The Blackburn Inn

Located in Staunton, Virginia, The Blackburn Inn invites couples to host their outdoor ceremony and other wedding-related events at their historic hotel & venue. Situated on an 80-acre campus atop rolling green landscapes spotted with willow trees, the boutique hotel has been modified to offer a modern, upscale retreat for guests. The venue’s red brick, whitewashed wood trim, and dramatic details offer couples a distinct and classic Virginia space to exchange vows.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples are welcome to use the venue for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and elopements, as well as engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, and bridal showers. The Blackburn Inn offers both covered and uncovered outdoor options, capable of accommodating up to 200 wedding guests. Couples can choose areas such as the fountains, the tented lower terrace, the gazebo area, or the meadow to organize their occasion. Plenty of parking can be offered to wedding guests, and wheelchair access also available.

Our brand new Conference Center offers two beautiful venues: Gallery 1828 and The Great Hall.

For couples that have already chosen an alternate wedding venue, they may also simply utilize the property as a home-away-from-home for their friends and family, with group accommodations available at preferred rates.

Services Offered
The Blackburn Inn has a selection of all-inclusive packages couples can consider when booking this venue. The packages may contain extra services for the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and accommodations. Vendors can be selected from a list of preferred vendors supplied by the facility, which are all professional, exceptional businesses in the local area. An on-site venue manager will be present the day of the wedding to assist with most necessary details, as well as arrange set up and clean up for the event. The Inn can also provide items such as chairs, tables, lighting, tents, and glassware. The in-house bar offers couples the option to have their own bartenders serve house and specialty beer and wine to guests from an open, limited, or cash bar.

Accommodations
First and foremost, The Blackburn Inn is a luxury boutique hotel, boasting 49 uniquely appointed guestrooms featuring luxury linens, rainfall showerheads, and original hardwood floors. The Blackburn Inn is happy to offer overnight accommodations at discounted rates.

    A Wedding Planner's Perspective

    Speaking from a Wedding Planner perspective. This is my second couple to have come through the doors of Blackburn Inn and both times have been stellar, which can be difficult to find in this industry with changing staff, etc. Even under COVID restrictions, the staff that I have worked with have been professional and just a pure joy. This is also with the stresses of the construction build out of their new event spaces.
    We had our tasting for our October Couple of which the bride has specific dietary needs. The amount of research performed by their Exec Chef and staff to ensure the most desired, enjoyable outcome was touching. The food and presentation was incredible and as a Planner, I experience many tastings. The fact that they have found such a talented Executive Chef, Ryan Youngman is a huge upsell for this boutique adorable hotel venue. Where Ryan is you will find his Assistant Chef Gabe close by rounding out this team so perfectly.
    While I am at it, I want to go ahead a praise the other staffers that I have been working with. Food and Beverage Manager Jeremy Wojton and GM Richard Smith. These two have always been close by to answer any questions.
    Lastly, Aimee Snyder, their Weddings and Special Events Manager. Her communication is on point. Her personality and knowledge of events is what makes her the perfect fit for this role. I have thoroughly enjoyed working along side of her working out the final details for our upcoming event.
    If this pre-show is any indication of what will happen game day. This planner won't have any concerns for my couple at all. They will be in great hands.
