Clifton Inn




Charlottesville weddings simply don't get any better than Clifton. A spectacular setting in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Clifton Inn offers the intimacy of small inns and the luxury of world-class hotels. A haven of dainty flower shrubs in pastels, lively lawns, and green trees, Clifton is a torn page of a storybook. Even the grand building, reminiscent of classic Southern living, boasts an aura of rustic elegance that brews ever so subtly. Whether you decide to elope on the dock at the lake, sip on cocktails at the quaint croquet lawn, laugh and dine on the terrace, or dance the night away under a great white tent, Clifton has some of the most gorgeous, natural sites you will ever see. Looking for the perfect Virginia destination wedding? Let Clifton become your home-away-from-home for the weekend and treat your guests to an experience they’ll never forget.
