It’s a Nice Day for a White Winter Wedding

The Clifton Inn offers its own wedding gift to couples: Complimentary rooms from January- March 15, 2014 for Winter Weddings!

This winter, The Clifton Inn is giving the ultimate gift to the wedding couple: the entire collection of guestrooms – 17 of them, are included at no charge* with weddings that take place during the snowy, pristine winter months — from January 2014 through mid-March 2014.* It only seems fitting, seeing as how the 100 acres on which Clifton sits were originally given to Thomas Jefferson’s daughter upon her marriage. It’s the gift that keeps on giving because no matter how many place settings, kitchen gadgets, and silver picture frames a couple may receive, the true gift is being able to share the day with family, friends, and those who matter the most – all in one place.

Friday/Saturday weddings include the use of all 17 guest rooms complimentary on Saturday night and because you are required to book rooms on Friday night, there is a winter wedding discount room rate for Friday accommodations.*  The Exclusivity Fee is $2,750 privacy for the main house in order to close the restaurant to the public, and a food and beverage minimum of $5,000.

Sunday-Thursday weddings include the use of all 17 guest rooms complimentary for the night of your wedding. The Exclusivity Fee is $1,500 for the main house, and a food and beverage minimum of $2,500.

*Valid only for exclusive use weddings utilizing the main house, January 1, 2014- March 15, 2014. Additional rooms and nights will incur additional costs. Rates exclude service fees and taxes. Offer is for new bookings only.


An Officer and a Gentleman… Or Lady

While for most servicemen and women their role with the United States military is much more than just a job, at the end of the day, they have a life to live as well – a life which may just include a wedding in the not-so-distant future. The Clifton Inn, in Charlottesville, VA would like to honor these men and women who give so much of themselves by offering 25% off of the facility fee when they wed at Clifton (offer valid Sunday-Thursday only).

With an elegant warmth and nostalgic grandeur akin to a royal country manor, The Clifton Inn seamlessly blends the world-class service and exquisite dining one would expect from a Relais & Châteaux caliber hotel with the intimacy and personalization of a private estate. Every bride is equipped with a day-of wedding coordinator who will take care of everything – leaving couples free to enjoy their limited time with each other before a deployment. With beautiful mountain vistas, Clifton’s 100 acres offers a variety of settings from a permanent tent foundation on site – with a dance floor customized to match the wedding colors, to a striking wine cellar that makes a truly unique rehearsal dinner setting.
