About the Property
Huge Horse/Cattle Farm; Manor House plus two cottages (Sleeps 47)
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 Milker's Cottage is just beyond the Pavilion. Renovated in 2015, it has two bedrooms, two baths and a large screened porch. Past the Milker's Cottage is the driveway to Baldy's retreat, a "tricked out" modular with modern styling that sleeps 13. The entire farm is truly idyllic, with horses and cattle as part of your scenery.
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 over 50 weddings each year, plus family reunions, anniversary parties, and big family vacations. If you do not need all the houses, we can offer you the package you want so long as it does not interfere with our week-end (Friday & Saturday) wedding packages.
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. Wedding venue shoppers should view our Facebook page for lots of pictures of weddings at the farm. Just go to Facebook and search "Wolftrap Farm Gordonsville" and our page will pop up.
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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

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 of our 6 grandchildren are somewhere in the picture.
Why the Owner Chose Gordonsville, VA, USA:
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.
