Rentals at Virginia House

Nestled on a hillside overlooking the James River and surrounded by nearly eight acres of grounds and gardens designed by Charles Freeman Gillette, it is the perfect backdrop for portraits, retreats, dinners, ceremonies, and receptions. Preserved with original woodwork and antiques, the house itself maintains its original character while offering modern amenities necessary for large gatherings and special occasions.

Please note that Virginia House is currently booked through 2024 for weddings, but we are accepting 2025 inquiries.  We are also able to accommodate small weekdays events and photography sessions.
