Sometimes you read reviews and think there's no way it can be that good, well it definitely can! The team at Walden Hall made our day so perfect that it was beyond anything we could have dreamed! Everything just comes together and is completely flawless. The service is... Read More impeccable, and the brunch is second to none! Our bridal party and guests were treated like royalty! They could not stop talking about how impressed they were with the friendly staff and service. They were not just serving you, they were taking care of you and had pride in their work. The entire estate is absolutely gorgeous, and we loved having our wedding in the barn. I'd recommend this venue to ANYONE who wants their wedding day to be perfect without having to worry about every detail, because Walden Hall is already 2 steps ahead and will make your day absolutely stunning!

They have options for indoor and outdoor ceremonies, so no need to worry about the weather. Decor? Forget spending an arm and a leg on crafts store wedding decor that you'll never be able to reuse, as the entire venue, in the barn and outside it, are Pinterest-chic; designed in a rustic, antique style from floor to ceiling. Food? Instead of hunting down every catering company, they have a list of preferred caterers to choose from, all of which are reasonable. We had brunch food and my goodness, it was perfect. Every tour and visit went swimmingly. They didn't rush us, and let us explore and ask questions. Eric checked in via email on my personal booking progress to make sure everything was going okay. Overall, everything was perfect. Everyone had a blast. This was honestly the first and the last venue we looked at; we were sold immediately by its charm. I'm not being bias when I say it was the best wedding ever thanks to Walden Hall!

My daughter and her fiancé were married at Walden Hall in October, 2016. As any engaged couple and their parents know, there is so much planning to making this event one of the most memorable for the bride and groom and for family and friends. From day one, Walden Hall has... Read More worked closely with us to ensure that this day would be memorable. We worked with Eric Fulton, general manager and events extraordinaire. He provided excellent service. Walden Hall was the absolute perfect place for a wedding. Eric was always available to show us the property and answer the many many questions we had. On the weekend of the wedding, a storm decided to change direction from the weather forecaster’s predictions and move up the mountain line to include the Shenandoah area. Eric remained in close contact with us as weather predictions changed and always had a plan B and plan C for the weather. Luckily, the day of the ceremony, the rain stopped and we had beautiful skies! Walden Hall communicated so well with our vendors and coordinated logistics with them before the event so our coordinator did not have to. We were able to host a wonderful and memorable wedding with the professional and caring attributes of all of our vendors. Many thanks to the staff of Walden Hall!

We tried to add on a third night to our stay but unfortunately they were fully booked. :( There is no reason to look anywhere else to have your wedding. If I could give the Walden Hall 10 stars, I would as they deserve it. Bravo to the Staff and all involved in making my daughters wedding pure perfection. I would say this venue radiates class, charm and elegance with a rustic flair. They are the very best. (Tip, book additional nights way in advance! You will want to stay longer!)

5 months after the event and we're still hearing from people that our wedding was the best they've ever been to! Walden Hall was the absolutely perfect venue- we had about 125 guests and rented the entire property for 3 days. The barn was just such beautiful space with so many... Read More great levels and textures- we barely had to do any decorating. The weather was perfect, a bit warm in the sun but the air cooled down to the perfect temperature by early evening! The staff were so nice and worked so well with the caterer, dj, and other vendors to pull off the event flawlessly. We were able to relax on the day of our wedding and not have to worry about the details! At first we were concerned about guests traveling from New York and DC being able to find the venue and travel there, but there are a few nearby towns (within 15 minutes) that have additional accommodations, wineries, breweries and much more!
