Can’t even begin to describe how absolutely perfect our wedding weekend was at Walden Hall. The staff go above and beyond at every turn and are an absolute dream to work with. Everything we requested in terms of layout and set-up was completely different from how they’ve ever done it before and not only did they pull it off perfectly, they did it with a smile and made us feel like everything we could imagine could be made possible. When we started our wedding venue search we saw at least a dozen places. None of them felt right. The second we stepped foot at Walden Hall we knew we found our wedding venue. The property is magical in every way - the outside is breathtaking and the level of thought that went into every detail of the house is out of this world. Everyone who stayed at the house for the weekend and all of our wedding guests commented on how incredible the space was - “like a postcard” so many people said. What they didn’t know (but what we did) is how special the staff is too. Leading up to the wedding they were so responsive and communicative and once the weekend got there they went out of their way to make us feel at home and put our minds at ease about the big day. They were like magicians working behind the scenes to make everything run perfectly without ever even being seen. It was unbelievable. If you are planning on getting married anywhere in the northern/central VA area, don’t look anywhere else. Imagine your dream wedding and then have it here - I promise it will be even better than you could dream it to be!

We randomly booked a stay at Walden Hall, never knowing it would later be the perfect venue for our just held wedding. Bless the Gods! Our vision was the perfect Autumn Virginia Wedding, held with the Ceremony on the Lawn, Reception in the Garden and later the beautiful Pool Area for late night family and friends. We were fortunate enough to be able to reserve the entire site for the weekend - highly recommended. However, as plans go, Hurricane Florence decided to invite herself and we faced major adjustments with two days left. Eric, the General Manager, and Lindsay, Walden Event Planner, corralled our vendors and formed an unbeatable and creative "think tank" to revisit every aspect of the day. Walden has the "Barn" in the classical sense, but thoughtfully decorated to nurture and personalize every event and it worked it's magic. We hold dear one image of our guests, eating, dancing and loving while the rain poured outside, almost tactile through the open barn doors, nestling us into being with one another, a perfect wedding moment. Trust your special day to the fully committed talents of Eric and Lindsay, choose well your caterer - one that will value their insights and creativity - and look forward to a life of oft relived memories. I know we will.

We were so incredibly grateful to have found Walden Hall and to have had our wedding at such a gorgeous venue. We had a very small wedding (only 14 of us total!) and rented out the entire bed & breakfast for several days. This gave us the opportunity to soak up all of the glory that Walden Hall had to offer; beautiful scenery, salt water pool, game room, movie night in the theater, BBQ’s, relaxing on the wrap-around porch, fishing, etc. Not to mention, the impeccable tasty breakfasts served every morning. I could go on for days about how much we enjoyed this venue, but I’ll keep it to a minimum for the review. :) Lindsay, the event manager, was an amazing lifesaver in this entire wedding process, continually helping out from big to small details; always lending a helping hand whenever she could. We can’t speak highly enough of the staff at Walden Hall. They have remarkable hospitality, friendly demeanor, and ultimately ended up becoming our friends by the end of the weekend! Thank you for creating such a warm, inviting, lovely atmosphere for us to have our wedding; we are beyond appreciative and hope to visit here soon again! We would, without a doubt, highly recommend Walden Hall to anyone searching for a beautiful countryside wedding; you will not be disappointed!

Walden Hall has fantastic accommodations, breathtaking landscaping and amenities, and a wonderful and attentive staff. This property gets a big thumbs up from our team!
Walden Hall is an intensely beautiful venue in Culpeper, Va. If you're looking for effortless elegance for your wedding day, Walden Hall is the location for you. They can take care of absolutely everything for you, or they can just let you have the space! And speaking of the space, the inside of the B&B is unlike any I've ever seen. It has an open, airy feel, and is decorated and set up perfectly for a wedding. The 18th century poet rooms are STUNNING, and the outdoor views are equally as beautiful. The owners are super down to earth and easy to work with. This venue gets a super two thumbs up! We cannot wait to work with them more in the future.
Walden Hall is an incredible B&B with the most amazing views and amenities! The venue is absolutely PERFECT for weddings or for a romantic weekend away.
