A great place for our wedding!!
A great place for our wedding!!
We are so happy that we chose Montfair Resort Farm as the location for our wedding. Not only was the scenery beautiful and the space supremely adequate, but the staff was extremely helpful and anxious to make our special day perfect for us and our guests. The rustic lodge provided the perfect atmosphere for our rehearsal dinner and reception. There was plenty of room for tables and a buffet... and afterward we had lots of room for dancing and socializing.The children loved throwing rocks in the pond and playing outside. Meanwhile, many of our guests stayed in some of the cabins which they found very pleasant. They said that there was plenty of room and the enjoyed the serenity of the woods. Among the best attributes of a wedding at Montfair is being able to spend an entire weekend with our friends and family who had traveled so far to be there (we had guests come from France and Sweden in addition to across the US). It gave us a common place to meet up, relax and socialize. The location is also perfect with so many great attractions nearby - Shenandoah National Park & Monticello. The staff and Montfair really went out of their way to make sure our event went off perfectly. Even when we had a crisis, thinking that one of our vendors had forgotten our table clothes, the staff at Montfair quickly jumped into action and called the vendor and found what we were missing. It was really great that the staff knows the vendors in the area and could help coordinate the event. We really appreciated the Montfair staff taking a sincere interest in our event. We stayed in the Main House as our honeymoon suite and it turned out to be the perfect place for everyone to dress up for the wedding and it was very comfortable to stay in. We had the bridal party prepare in one bedroom and the groomsman prepare in the other bedroom. Perfect! The bedrooms and living areas were all very clean and tidy. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and drinks. Highly recommended! All together, we had a beautiful and supremely enjoyable wedding at Montfair. The people there are kind and very happy to help. We recommend Montfair to everyone and we've already talked about celebrating our anniversary there.
