The Lafayette Inn & Restaurant

     

Charlottesville area boutique wedding venue. Selected by ILoveInn.com as one of the 12 best B&B Fantasy Wedding Locations. The Inn has become a favorite destination for wedding receptions and special events, and can accommodate small to medium sized parties. Host your event in our dining room, the adjacent courtyard or for smaller gatherings in the Tavern. Larger group- reserve the entire restaurant and enjoy all of the space!

Brides often choose our gazebo for the actual ceremony, our courtyard for the larger receptions and our dining room for the smaller service. The Courthouse bells ring at noon and six o’clock in the evening and can be heard at The Lafayette Inn, should you wish to coordinate your ceremony with the chimes.

Beyond the wedding location, The Lafayette can also arrange the food and beverage service, assist in finding the florist, wedding cake designer…even your wedding celebrant should you desire. On many occasions we have arranged a suite for the wedding couple, professional massage therapist to relax the bride and her wedding party. We can arrange a private wine tour  and/or a tour along the adjacent Skyline Drive- taking in the breaktaking views from the Blue Ridge Mountains...providing your guests a destination they will never forget. Enjoy all that our Charlottesville area location provides!



Be sure and visit our Catering page for more details on how we can take care of all of your event needs.
