Book the entire farm for your Charlottesville area wedding, extended family gathering, anniversary party, retreat or other special event. NOTE: The Pavilion must also be booked for weddings and other party events, at extra cost explained in the rates section. The Pavilion is your reception site, and includes tables, chairs, ceremony site, dressing rooms, caterer's warming kitchen, etc.
Wolf Trap Farm features panoramic views of mountains, pastures, horses and cattle, miles of board fencing and beautiful woodlands full of trails. The farm complex is a Virginia Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Manor House is at the heart of the farm complex, and features 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, two kitchens, a large patio and boxwood garden. Nestled behind the Manor House is the 1856 Servants' Cottage, with its huge covered patio. Just down the hill is the Pond House, a more contemporary cottage overlooking a pond full of bass, bream, frogs and turtles. The setting is truly idyllic, with horses and cattle as part of your scenery. (SPECIAL UPDATE: A third cottage, sleeping 7, will be converted and added Sep. 1, 2015, bringing lodging capacity to 32.)
The Charlottesville area, with its stunning scenery, many wineries, and historic sites such as Monticello, Montpelier, and rural historic districts, has become a top choice for weddings and other special gatherings. Wolf Trap Farm hosts about two-dozen weddings each year. The farm also serves as a special place to accommodate families when a wedding is being held at a nearby winery or other special site. A stay at Wolf Trap gives the wedding party or family another unforgettable experience as part of their special week-end.
Many groups use the farm as a place to gather the families and invite the extended family and friends for cook-outs, rehearsal parties, or for the reception.
Our Pavilion is enclosed on three sides, accommodates 150 under roof and has an overflow patio that can seat another 40 - 50, and has a stage and ample dance floor. There is an oversized ladies' dressing/bathroom, men's bathroom, and a caterer's warming kitchen. Our hilltop ceremony site is just behind the Pavilion. Be sure to visit the farm's website (see link at foot of this listing, or search "Wolftrap Farm Gordonsville") for more details about booking the farm and Pavilion for your wedding or other large gathering.
All ages are happy at the farm. The little ones play in the great outdoors, the oldsters stroll the grounds, the teenagers and young adults go on excursions on or off the farm, the guys can fish or play pool, the gals can soak in the hot tub, and the dogs are particularly happy.
If you have ever driven the winding country roads around Charllottesville, admiring the beautiful estates and wondering what it would be like to visit such places, perhaps for a wedding or party, here is your opportunity.
You can find each house and cottage listed separately on this site, or visit the farm's own website for more pictures and information.
Your guests will find the farm unforgettable. They can hike, see horses, cattle and mountains, catch fish, soak in the hot tub, lounge on the patios, and walk for miles without leaving the farm. They can extend their stay and visit Monticello, Montpelier, the local wineries, UVA, and Wilderness Battlefield. They can eat at wonderful restaurants right in Gordonsville, go trail riding at a neighboring farm, or go tubing or rafting on the James. You can even make your honeymoon getaway in a hot air balloon. ...moreless
For weddings and events, the Pavilion must be booked as well. The 2015 rate for the Pavilion for Saturday events is $3,500. The Pavilion may be booked separately for Sunday events for $2,500 for 2015. The winter discount on Pavilion rates is 40%, and the April discount is 20%.

Great venue for your Charlottesville-area wedding, family reunion or anniversary party. This 600 acre estate is 30 minutes from Charlottesville, Monticello and UVA. It is 15 minutes from 3 wineries and many others are within 30 minutes. This area is home to many historic estates, and is part of Virginia horse country.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I am that nut flying through the air in front of my family up at the farm. I have been a lawyer in the Norfolk area since 1979, and have bought and renovated many rundown properties for fun and profit. My wife, three adult children and their spouses, and four grandchildren are somewhere in the picture.
Why the Owner Chose Charlottesville: In 2003, I was searching for a little mountain getaway cabin to buy, and I got carried away. I get a kick out of fixer-uppers, and this was a huge project when I bought it. The Charlottesville area is fantastic, and Gordonsville is just a gem. I got lucky.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate: Owning the farm is sort of like having your own state park, but it is a lot more upscale. The landscape itself is what originally got my attention, plus the sheer size of the property. And then there are the ponds, the beautiful driveway, the historic buildings.
