Located four miles south of Old Town Alexandria, River Farm, headquarters of the American Horticultural Society, rests on 25 acres of gardens and woods overlooking the Potomac River. Tucked conveniently close to the Washington DC Metro area, it serves as an ideal location for your upcoming wedding, social gathering, or business get-together. The manor-style house, formal and informal gardens, and sprawling lawns offer endless options for your creativity in planning an unforgettable event. Our many gardens and spacious lawns, as well as the main level of our Estate House, are included with your rental. Our spacious slate patio overlooking the Potomac River and surrounded by gardens (also included of course!) makes dining here very special. The patio is canopied April-November. We can accommodate up to 160 guests seated there and up to 200+ standing. For smaller events, where you and your guests might wish to dine inside, our classic Ballroom holds 50 people, seated. Our Parlor is a charming room to relax in, during a wedding reception. A country kitchen, plus outdoor and indoor prep porches, are available to your caterer.
