James and Dolley Madison owned the land that is now Wolftrap Farm during their lifetimes. They called it Black Meadow, and often visited it from their Montpelier home, just across the mountain. The farm is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Registry. It has been a dairy farm, a thoroughbred horse farm in prior years. Acquired by the Cuthrell family of Virginia Beach in 2003, the farm was opened for guests and their events in 2004.
Offering scenic views of the southwest mountains, Wolftrap Farm is located five miles southeast of James Madison’s Montpelier home and rests atop the last foothills of the Piedmont. It is 20 miles from Charlottesville, an hour's drive from Richmond, and 100 miles from Washington, D.C.

The perfect venue!
We had a chunk of our families staying in various lodgings around the farm, and all reported back that the accommodations were well kept, comfy and plenty of space for everyone. It was so convenient to have people staying at the venue, and allowing us to enjoy the farm the whole weekend.
This was the perfect wedding experience for us, we could not have asked for a better day.
Perfect location for an outdoor, rustic farm wedding.
We had to postpone our wedding twice because of Covid-19. Keith was extremely helpful and accommodating. Tina was our eyes, ears, and hands over in the farm. She helped us a lot. It was such a pleasure to work with her.
We look forward to going back to the farm one day.
Don't think twice, just book it!
