Venue Name

Clifton Inn

Wedding Venue Location

Charlottesville, VA

When did you open?


Why did you decide to open your venue?

The current owners have had Clifton for the past 30 years. It began as a simple five room bed and breakfast and has progressed over the years to include an award-winning restaurant and event venue.

How many people does your venue hold for an event?

Up to 250 people.

What makes your venue unique?

Clifton Inn rests on 100 acres, but is only 10 minutes from the heart of downtown Charlottesville. We offer exclusive use weddings, which means the wedding party takes over all of Clifton Inn for the entire weekend. Guests utilize our 17 guest rooms, and Clifton becomes a celebratory hub for the weekend!

Best piece of planning advice to a new bride

What is your ideal couple like?
