Weddings & Events

The Indigo House

Here at the Indigo, we’re committed to gathering more – more stories, people, moments, and memories – so we make sure our event spaces bring people together.

Your next great adventure starts here

The Indigo House is a newly constructed bed & breakfast that offers scenic gathering spaces for elopements and small weddings outside of Charlottesville, Virginia. With five acres of sweeping mountain views and towering poplar and oak trees, we help you create an inclusive and intimate celebration that feels natural.

Couples can choose from an adventure elopement or micro wedding for up to 50 guests. Whether you stay for the day or a weekend, we invite you to start your next great adventure nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

The Property

Just 30 minutes from Charlottesville, Virginia, the Indigo House is conveniently located on the Nelson 151, near Shenandoah National Park. It has four national park-inspired guest rooms, two living rooms, plenty of outdoor patio space (including a fire pit), and a private trail. The Shenandoah guestroom offers ground-floor access to a hallway bath. All wedding packages include accommodations for the couple.

We offer tours on weekends, by appointment only. In the meantime, see a bird’s eye view from April 2023, right after we finished construction or check out the Events highlight on Instagram.

LITTLE SEQUOIA

Affectionately named and completely inspired by the enchanting woodsy weddings in Sequoia National Park, “Little Sequoia” was designed for the majestic I do. It is about 40×20 feet and easily seats 50 people in rows. The ground is covered with premium mulch. The ceremony location comes with pre-strung bistro lights.

Our favorite part: The golden rays of the sunset, as they dance through the trees, set the most romantic light for evening ceremonies.

THE SIDE LAWN

Perfectly situated for a backyard reception, the Side Lawn is a natural fit for an intimate evening under the stars. It’s beautifully landscaped with native plants and herbs, equipped with power, and fully shaded in the late afternoon and evening. Enjoy post-ceremony cocktail hour at the adjacent courtyard, complete with residential outdoor furniture, a fire pit, bistro lighting, and an overhead fan.

Our favorite part: It’s the perfect space for the tent, offering mountain views on one side and a wooded backdrop on the other!

THE MEADOW

The Meadow is ideal for couples who desire stunning mountain views as their ceremony backdrop. This area is closest to the home and features afternoon shade, sweet romance, and seasonal wildflowers. Ceremonies of up to 50 people can be held on the level gravel space or in the adjoining field.

Our favorite part: This picture-perfect setting shines all year long and almost always has a breeze.
