Steeped in 250 years of history, Touchstone Manor is a lodging and event venue nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains near Charlottesville, Virginia. We offer both indoor and/or outdoor wedding experiences at Touchstone Manor, designed exactly how you want it. Touchstone Manor is the empty canvas waiting for your palette of wedding ideas and inspiration.
Exchange your vows overlooking the Shenandoah Mountains, by the Roach River with the sounds of the babbling water, next to the Rustic Historic Barn, inside the Great Room, or some place special to you on the property. Touchstone Manor offers options for both one day or weekend wedding events.
After the ceremony, celebrate your wedding with all of your loved ones in one of the many event spaces in the Manor and on the property. Our event spaces are great for small, intimate weddings and elopements or larger groups.
Our Wine Cellar, Cox Dining Room, River Birch Cabin Deck, or smaller outdoor verandas are perfect for events with 2-12 guests.
The Great Room is perfect for groups of 10-50 and includes full access to all of the Entertainment Rooms as well as the expansive backyard area and verandas overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. For outdoor events the Mountain View Veranda & Garden area has plenty of space to seat up to 50 guests on the verandas and has the capacity for up to 150 guests using the Garden Gazebo and yard areas for additional seating. The Rustic Historic Barn is best for larger groups of 50-150 guests and is our rain option for planned outdoor events.
Stay the whole weekend for the wedding to enjoy time with family and friends by using the Manor and event spaces for all of your activities. The Manor is great for wedding weekends even if you are not using our property for the ceremony or reception. We also offer packages for lodging and other wedding activities, like getting ready, brunch or rehearsal dinners. Our wedding couples and guests truly enjoy Touchstone and we hope you will too!
