Castle Hill {Charlottesville Venues}

The Engaging Affairs girls had the pleasure of visiting Castle Hill Cider, a Virginia cidery and event venue.  Let me tell you, this place is stunning!  There are so many possibilities for rehearsal dinner, ceremonies, and receptions on this property. 

Castle Hill is located in Keswick’s horse country, just a few miles away from Charlottesville.  The Blue Ridge Mountains serve as a perfect backdrop for wedding photos anytime of the year!

The Barn has a finished feel but is still rustic which lends itself to countless d├ęcor possibilities!  It has an awesome loft that can seat an additional 200-300 guests.  There is also a separate library, which can serve as a bridal room, complete with a fireplace, lounge furniture, and a balcony.  The tasting room can also act as a private hideaway for the bride and groom! 

Outside, the Linden Grove is so beautiful for either a ceremony or a reception.  There are also The Orchard, The Lawns, and The Lake for an outside option, tented or not!

The venue is also a cidery so their tasting room is open to the public during the day.  Evelyn Keyes, their events coordinator, was so gracious to let us try some of the ciders that they make on site.  So delicious and refreshing!  We couldn’t help but think how fabulous that would be for a toast, specialty cocktail, or a favor for a wedding!

The Engaging Affairs girls are so excited to plan some weddings in this gorgeous venue!
