An Evening in the Washington Room
If you are looking for a timeless wedding venue, the Red Fox can't be beat. We decided to have a small wedding on our original date with a larger reception postponed until spring, so two "weddings" meant we had to be careful with our budget. After talking with the events coordinator, Ashley, we decided that the Red Fox would be worth the price tag because everyone was so flexible, thoughtful, and accommodating. For example, when the Governor announced new COVID safety protocols, Ashley moved our reception dinner into a larger space to ensure social distancing.
I was lucky to spend two nights in the charming and well-appointed Middleburg Cottage, which features a private garden, a full kitchen, and a collection of hunting art. The Cottage has a guest room with twin beds, which is perfect for a night-before-the-wedding hangout with your bridesmaids! It was also the perfect place to take pictures and get ready on the big day. The morning after our wedding, they delivered a hot breakfast and coffee to our cottage.
After getting married at St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church down the street, my guests took pictures on the Red Fox Inn's grounds surrounded by blooming flowers and carefully cultivated climbing fruit trees. Our dinner in the Washington Room was one of the best meals I've ever had, and the service was exceptional. Ashley worked with my wedding planner on the timing of the evening and the pace between dishes. To save money on music, they let us play a Spotify playlist through the speakers. Because we had a consumption bar, we ended up going a little over budget, but I don't fault them for it because that's often hard to predict. (And my father in law says he's never had a better Old Fashioned.) Our guests have raved about our reception for weeks. Overall our experience was literally perfect in every way and worth the slightly-larger-than-expected price tag!Sent on 09/20/2020

My husband and I hosted our son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner at the Red Fox Inn & Tavern. Ashley Sykes Hawkins, the Events Director, used her expertise to make the dinner a raving success. She is extremely well organized and kept me on a timeline when I needed to make each selection for the guest count, seating arrangement, and menu. She arranged for the Graphics Department to print custom menus and place cards based upon our dinner invitations. Ashley also gave me a list of items included in the standard table setting and added elegant black bamboo chairs. She placed votive candles on the tables and mantles to make the Jeb Stuart dining room look magical. She also recommended a local florist who created beautiful centerpieces. The canapes, appetizers, filet mignon, seared scallops, and chocolate torte were excellent! The ladies who waited on our tables were courteous, professional, and very personable. Everything went seamlessly and we will never forget it.Sent on 09/16/2018

We had a group dinner for 16 people at the Red Fox Inn and the entire evening was amazing. The appetizers were delicious, the entrees for dinner were perfectly cooked and the service was outstanding. We would definitely return.Sent on 08/01/2018
