Outdoorsy Wedding Paradise
We couldn't have asked for a better venue. It fit with exactly what we wanted. We loved having many of our guests stay on site. We spent a whole long weekend at the venue which made the experience even more memorable. Everyone at Montfair was so kind and helpful. Victoria went above and beyond to answer our many questions before the wedding. We had a blast doing picnics, bonfires, and canoeing throughout the weekend. Even though it was 90 degrees and almost everything was outside, we would not have changed the venue for anything. Besides our friends and family, the venue made the wedding. The views are breathtaking, the lake is gorgeous, and the whole feel is one of relaxation. If you are looking for an outdoorsy wedding and want to celebrate all weekend long, I couldn't recommend this place enough. We can wait to return as guests!Sent on 06/11/2019

Beautiful outdoor venue with a great rain option!
Our Montfair wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful. The mountain backdrop, the open field, and the open, wooden lodge with a big deck were exactly what we wanted. We had a smaller wedding (~70 guests) and many of our family and friends stayed in the cabins. The lodge was perfect for our rehearsal dinner and reception. Every outdoor wedding couple worries about rain, of course, but we worried a lot less knowing that the lodge deck with its lovely pond view was our rain option. The staff was friendly and helpful and we were pretty much allowed to bring in whatever vendors we wanted. We used both the fireplace and bonfire and the guests loved it. We didn't have to lift a finger to do the fire - the staff did it all. It was great value for the cost. I also love the fact that we get a discount when we rent cabins there in the future... it is such a sweet, quiet location and will be perfect for romantic anniversary getaways!Sent on 07/12/2019
Some things to be aware of - and these aren’t drawbacks, just things to know. (1) There is no cell reception, so last-minute calls to vendors or photographers or wayward guests can be a challenge. Wifi is available though. The great thing is that you can plan for an “unplugged” weekend if your people are on board with that! (2) The location, which is hilly and has a lot of gravel roads, can be a challenge for older guests or those with reduced mobility. We rented golf carts and that definitely helped.

We had our wedding at Montfair in March 2019, and are so so thankful we did! Between the beautiful grounds, extremely helpful and friendly staff, and the ease of the whole wedding planning process, we would choose this venue again a million times over. The scenery is beautiful, the cabins are cozy, and the views from the ceremony field and reception hall are breath-taking. The team in place is timely and supportive in everything they do, and we could not have been more impressed with the group of individuals that helped bring our vision to life. We searched for the perfect venue for month, and knew from the moment we set foot on-site that Montfair was just that. We will be making a habit of regularly visiting Montfair in the future, and would highly recommend this venue for any of your wedding needs!Sent on 05/04/2019

Montfair Resort Farm was the first wedding venue we visited and I immediately knew that it was where we would get married! The mountain views are breathtaking, the lake views are gorgeous, and the lodge is beautifully decorated with string lights. Montfair provides plenty of space and different locations for your ceremony and reception and works great in case it rains on your wedding day like it did on ours!Sent on 12/03/2018
Every single member of the staff at Montfair that we worked with was so incredibly helpful, flexible, friendly, and professional. From our first visit to our many follow-up emails and phone calls, we always felt taken care of. They offered great suggestions which helped our planning process and made our wedding day so smooth and easy.
Don't hesitate to book your wedding with Montfair - it is an unforgettable and magical place to get married! I also highly recommend booking a cottage or two for family members to stay overnight, and my husband and I stayed in the house which was so comfortable and a great space to get ready. We can't wait to go back and visit Montfair for a weekend getaway!

My husband and I got married on 10/20/2018 and we could not even imagine getting married any where other than Montfair Resort Farm! It was absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! My husband and I actually stayed at Montfair a couple of years ago, and during our stay I remember a young lady and her soon to be husband talking with the staff about a wedding!! I told Ben how beautiful it would be to get married there!!! So when Ben purposed to me I just knew I wanted to go back to Montfair and check out all the details! We searched other venues in the area, but none of them allowed dogs!!! Brides if you are looking for a venue who is dog friendly, beautiful atmosphere, great laid back staff, then Montfair is the place for you to get married at!!! All of our guest loved the venue, and even said “wow, no wonder they wanted to get married here!” We are from Richmond, Va so it is a little bit of a drive for us but it was so worth it!!! They also have cabins for you and your guest to stay at which was very convenient!!! I absolutely love all of our wedding pictures and the beautiful scenery!!! I highly recommend getting married at Montfair Resort Farm!! You won’t regret it :)Sent on 11/09/2018

I have so many nice things to say about Montfair it's hard to find a place to start. We chose Montfair for its breath taking views from the wedding field and the perfectly charming reception lodge. Its truly the whole package! You couldn't even tell that a hurricane rolled through just two weeks before our big day, the staff is THAT good. From the owners, to the office and cleaning staff everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable of the property and surrounding vendors. Everything was exceptionally clean from the picture perfect windows of the lodge to the parking lot, not a single piece of litter on the ground. I can't thank the Montfair team enough for providing the perfect place for our wedding. It was a dream come true!Sent on 10/02/2018

Katie, Dave, and the rest of the team at Montfair Resort Farm are an absolute dream to work with and the venue is incredible. We loved every aspect of our big day, our rehearsal, and everything leading up with Montfair. The scenery and views are gorgeous, the house on site has some serious natural light and plenty of room for bridal party to get ready, the A-frame cabin is ideally set by the lake for the groomsmen to spend the wedding day, and the lodge where the main festivities take place is incredible. We were blown away by everything about the venue and could never imagine a better place to have our wedding!Sent on 08/29/2018

Montfair was an incredible venue for our weekend wedding. We knew we wanted to have our wedding somewhere with a beautiful outdoor ceremony site that could also accommodate more than 150 guests. Montfair was the perfect solution for us and we were impressed from the beginning with the kind staff, gorgeous views, and value proposition of having chairs, tables, lawn games and two bonfires included in our wedding weekend. Our guests had an amazing time and are still telling us about how much they enjoyed the views and outdoor time together playing horseshoes, kayaking and walking the nature trail. Katie, the events coordinator, was communicative with us and our wedding planner from the beginning and even helped us with some planning tips and vendor suggestions before we found a planner. On the day of our wedding, our mandap (Indian style wedding awning/platform) blew over before our ceremony was going to start. Dave, a member of the Montfair team, went way above and beyond to help our families and planner get the mandap set up again in a far more secure way than the rental company had first set it up. He truly saved the day for us! If you love being outdoors, like looking at the mountains and are happy with a slightly rustic, you truly can't go wrong with Montfair.Sent on 05/06/2018

Montfair was hands down the BEST decision we made (besides getting married of course). It is one of those unique places that takes your breath away the moment you drive up to the venue. If you're the kind of bride who is looking for a place that is heartfelt, the people are kind, and the physical space is rustic and gorgeous and completely flexible to whatever you want - vendors, etc, Montfair IS IT.Sent on 04/11/2018
My husband and I are laid back artist types and we wanted our wedding to be local (we're from Charlottesville) and focused on the bringing together of our families and unpretentious - and we knew from the beginning we wanted to do our own programming, catering (our families provided home made dishes), music (I created our entire wedding play lists start to finish and my husband brought in his own sound equipment), decorations (handmade garland, thrifted china plate settings, etc), and more importantly we wanted our dogs to be able to join us at the ceremony, and Montfair was amazing about accommodating every aspect of the DIY event. It's rare to find a wedding venue that does not restrict you with vendors, etc, and we truly appreciated how open they were to our vision.
The best part about this place was the AMAZING staff!! Katie was a true GEM - she was so kind, patient, and friendly, with every step of the planning process - she answered all of our questions and did so with wonderful grace and humor. The team at Montfair made us feel super supported the entire way. The fact that we never had to worry about the venue significantly cut back on our stress during planning.
I could write endlessly about how much I loved this place but the best thing you could do is just set up an appointment and go see the space yourself. When you know, you know, and with Montfair, we just knew.

This was the most beautiful place to get married. It has everything a bride and groom could want and more! The views are incredible! We wish we could relive it over and over again!Sent on 02/16/2018

Our experience with Montfair was fantastic! We loved working with the small staff and getting married in a location that was so special and remote. Everything about this place is just so intimate and original- just the way a wedding should feel! We even rented out the entire place for lodging so all of our family and wedding party could stay onsite. Thanks Montfair!Sent on 02/19/2018

Montfair and their staff truly exceeded all expectations. Let's start with the venue. The venue is simply perfect. It's in a stunning location with just perfect views of the mountains and a gorgeous lake. The lodge and porch are perfect, with lovely lighting already set up and available to you. Every guest commented how gorgeous the venue was, and one note how the setting resembled a painting. We unfortunately had some rain on the day of the wedding, but because the venue comes with the lodge for the reception and a lighted tent covering the deck, we were able to quickly shift into plan b and keep our guests dry. The atmosphere remained perfect and the staff were so flexible in helping us adjust.Sent on 10/20/2017
Next the staff: Katie Teel is simply amazing. Throughout the year she quickly and efficiently responded to every inquiry we had - much more quickly and thoroughly than any other venue we were considering. So for the cost of the venue you are not only getting an amazing location but an absolutely wonderful hand in Katie. Most helpful perhaps was Katie's extraordinary flexibility. While our contract only entitled us to access the property at noon, Katie and the staff worked hard to still get us access as soon as possible. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant and helpful experience.
Next, another perfect thing about montfair is there are no limits on vendors or caterers. You can bring what you want from whomever you want. Their kitchen is huge so you can store cold and hot dishes as you please.
Finally, the accommodations at Montfair were really wonderful. The main house - the Beauchamp House - is large and comfortable and serves as a great staging and prep area for the bridal party. The cabins in the woods around the reception cabin are serene, relaxing, and rustic, but with all the amenities you would need to stay comfortable (kitchen, wifi, showers, etc).
We enjoyed montfair so much we are hoping to spend our one year anniversary there.

Montfair Resort Farm is truly magical. Not just the stunning environment (rolling green hills, blue ridge mountains, perfectly picturesque lake!), but also the staff. There are plenty of pictures of the Montfair that speak for itself - which we can loudly and confidently confirm - but there's little physical evidence of how amazing everyone at Montfair is in helping you plan, envision, and recognize your ideal wedding. At the end of the weekend (because yes, you can have an entire wedding weekend at Montfair! not just a day), it was the "Yes" and "Can do" attitude of everyone at Montfair that made planning a joy and the wedding stress-free. When we dreamt of a vintage, mobile caravan to uniquely serve as our bar in two different locations, Montfair rolled up their sleeves and helped us and the vendor find a way to position themselves safely, securely, and in perfect sight for our guests. This was a first-time vendor at Montfair and could have easily been turned away because of size and complexity to move throughout the grounds (literally needed to be backed up in between two trees), but Montfair didn't even think about that option. They were willing to try and make everything work. That collaborative and supporting sentiment is truly unique for Montfair as a wedding venue. And this is just one story! There are tons more in which Montfair worked with us to have a wedding completely our own, not adhering to cookie cutter standards and rules.Sent on 11/15/2017
It's hard to express everything that Montfair did for us into words, but when thinking about our wedding, we wanted a place that truly captured our personalities - nature-loving, intimate, relaxing, rustic, sophisticated, unique and personable.
Montfair is that place.
We couldn't recommend them enough!
Siobhain · Married on 09/16/2017
The team at Montfair was incredible to work with -- we really wanted our wedding to be a weekend experience, and to have our family and close friends with us. We were so thrilled when we found Montfair - it's an absolutely beautiful location with flexibility and options for ceremony and reception location. We even held our rehearsal dinner at the venue because it's so gorgeous. Thank you!! I would do it all over again.Sent on 10/24/2017

Choosing Montfair was the best decision we made while planning our wedding! The surroundings absolutely blew us away — from the beautiful mountain backdrop of our ceremony, to the magical cocktail hour setting of the lake and woods. The venue provided the perfect combination of a festive but relaxed atmosphere, which helped our guests celebrate without feeling like the events were too staged or constrained. At the cocktail hour, our guests appreciated the variety of activities available, from lawn games, to mingling on the deck, to taking the canoes out on the lake.Sent on 10/28/2017
It was really important to us to take the opportunity of the wedding to spend time with friends and family, so the ability to rent the property + cabins for the whole weekend was truly special. Our wedding party stayed in the cabins, and had everything they needed to just relax and have a good time. Beauchamp House was a great spot for my bridesmaids and me to get ready. Besides giving us extra time with friends and family, renting the venue for the full weekend made it easy to plan events on Friday and Sunday and keep costs down. We had our rehearsal dinner down by the lake, and brought in a donut truck for Sunday brunch. Easy!
The Montfair staff was a dream to work with. Katie Teel answered all our questions and stayed on top of every detail. During the wedding weekend, Aila set up a gorgeous bonfire and made sure we had everything we needed.
We can’t recommend Montfair highly enough, and are hoping to return in future years to stay in a cabin and relive the magic!

Beautiful venue and awesome, laid back staff made this perfect wedding weekend. It was so great to be able to have the majority of the wedding guests stay at the site so we could party all weekend!Sent on 10/19/2017
Thuy · Married on 06/17/2017
Absolutely gorgeous rustic outdoor wedding. Our guests still talk about how beautiful our venue was. One guest even commented that would consider returning to Montfair for a weekend retreat from northern VA. It was great to see our younger guests enjoy roasting marshmallows at the firepit and canoeing on the lake. Forget the [pricey] vineyard wedding and consider Montfair Resort Farm, where you'll get similarly amazing panoramic views of mountains and rolling hills, not to mention the beautiful rustic cabins. Highly recommend!Sent on 11/17/2017

Montfair was a beautiful venue for our wedding. The ceremony site offers breathtaking views of the mountains behind it and the reception area offers a woodsy and intimate feel. Katie was extremely responsive to all questions and requests. She made us feel at home and we could not be happier with our choice.Sent on 06/03/2017

Going into our venue search, we knew we wanted to get married somewhere that was laid back but also somewhere that showcased Virginia's beauty. After we visited Montfair for the first time, we canceled all of our other venue tours and booked our wedding weekend right away as it had everything we wanted and more. The location was perfect for our families and friends and with the package we chose, we were able to have our entire wedding party stay in the cabins that are located on site the whole weekend. We got very lucky with the weather clearing up and were able to have the ceremony at the ceremony field with the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in the backdrop. Even if the weather hadn't cleared up, we had peace of mind knowing that we had a back-up ceremony location at the lodge on the covered deck. The reception at the lodge could not have turned out better. Everything about Montfair is already so naturally beautiful that we only had to add details that enhanced the beauty. Everyone we worked with at Montfair was so helpful and nice. It truly is a DIY venue so if you are the creative type and love to incorporate nature into your crafts, then this is the venue for you. One good and bad thing about the location is there is very little cell phone service. This was good for our guests because it kind of forced it to be a technology free wedding. If you want to avoid any communication issues, a tip would be to purchase/rent/borrow walkie talkies. We purchased enough for the wedding party and wedding planner and they helped us out immensely since the resort is pretty spread out. Another tip would be to rent golf carts. We rented a 2, 4 and 6 seater GEM/golf carts and they were used all weekend to help zip around the resort quickly and to also escort guests to and from the ceremony field from the parking lot/lodge. If you are a laid back, casual bride and groom that want to have a laid back, casual wedding at a beautiful setting, then Montfair is the venue for you.Sent on 11/22/2016

This place was AMAZING. We were looking for a nature-oriented venue that had either a mountain or water feature and were so pleased that this had both. It is so convenient having friends/family stay in the on-site cottages and the venue itself is so pretty and tucked away that all of my guests were impressed that we even found such a gem! It truly was a destination wedding as we decided to do a 2 day destination package which gave us use of the facilities for 2 days. Working with the venue was amazing - everybody was so helpful and friendly. While it is a more rustic venue we were able to make our party very elegant and fun and using the rustic vibe to highlight the nature element. It really was quite perfect. You may want to note that rental of this venue is just the venue with tables and chairs. Arrangement of items and things like plates, linen, glassware etc. is not included but most of the catering places we found offered to assist with those items.Sent on 09/10/2016

Montfair was the perfect place to host our wedding. The scenery is stunning, providing the perfect backdrop for our ceremony, and a wonderful setting to spend the weekend with our family and friends. The onsite lodging made for a perfect long weekend wedding, and actually gave us a chance to visit with our friends and family. The staff were so polite, courteous and responsive, and "on it" whenever we had questions. As we were leaving, they told us that they want people to feel "at home" at Montfair, and we certainly did.Sent on 07/07/2016

My husband and I had our wedding at Montfair on 5/6/2016, and we couldn't have been happier. The ceremony site on the hilltop looking the mountains is absolutely stunning. We also loved the option of being near the water for our reception. Many sites have mountains or water, but Montfair has both! We loved that we could use our own selected vendors which helped us stay within our budget. The reception space is also beautiful, and we found that everyone had a fantastic time at our wedding - and felt so relaxed! Highly recommended.Sent on 05/23/2016

As soon as we toured Montfair, we knew it was the place for us. Montfair is such a beautiful location and provides a natural feel as it is nestled on the mountains in the woods. Something that we loved about Montfair was that they also have cabins that you can rent and use for the wedding weekend so that you don't have to leave the venue. There is also a big pond that you will have access to and a beautiful lodge with a fireplace and attached porch with tent. I had several of my guests comment afterwards on how they just loved the venue and thought it was so beautiful.Sent on 11/29/2015

Montfair is a breathtaking venue in the mountains of Crozet. I was married there on October 12th, 2015, and I think every single one of my guests told me how beautiful the scenery was, and how charming the venue was, too! I highly, highly recommend going to Montfair to view it in person. If it's the venue for you, you'll know right away - my wife and I knew the moment we saw it that we would be married there. Montfair doesn't provide all wedding services, so you'll have to do some hunting for your own caterers and other vendors, but it's intimate, cozy, and romantic - and to us, that was everything we needed in a wedding venue.Sent on 12/09/2015

Absolutely outstanding venue and professional staff. Couldn't have asked for a better wedding spot. Bonfire was a huge hit for our guests! The cabins were fully furnished and heated. We will be staying here again whenever we need a weekend away from Northern Virginia!Sent on 12/18/2015
