  • Five stars is not enough for Rixey Manor. We had our wedding on August 26, 2017 and it was absolutely perfect. Beyond the stunning backdrop of the venue and location itself, Ben and Isadora, the owners and operators of the Manor are experts at their craft - they take care of everything, making sure you have a flawless event so you can focus on enjoying the moments that matter. When we first met with Ben and Isadora back in November 2016, they took two hours to sit down with us and walk us through all of the offerings of the venue and the aspects of a wedding, giving us recommendations for vendors and giving us their undivided attention. Starting the process of wedding planning had been initially overwhelming for us, but Ben and Isadora instantly put us at ease breaking down the basic components of a wedding into manageable parts. The most important part for us was that as we left, we felt we had two people in our corner that had our best interest at heart and we didn't feel the slighte... Read more

  • Choosing Rixey Manor was hands down the best decision we made in our wedding planning process. The venue itself is amazing, with beautiful views of the mountains, a gorgeous ballroom, and lovely grounds. But what really makes this venue stand out is the people running it. Ben and Isadora are absolutely amazing, from the planning process to the day-of, and went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. They provided lots of honest, constructive advice, as well as vendor recommendations, and were willing to answer any questions, no matter how big or small. Day-of, they made things run like clockwork, from coordinating with vendors, to helping the wedding party with their attire, to tackling last minute details-- all while making us feel so comfortable, at ease, and welcome. They truly helped set the tone for the day. We are so thrilled we were lucky enough to find Rixey Manor and cannot recommend them highly enough!

  • Choosing this venue was absolutely, positively the best decision we made for our wedding. The main reason we picked Rixey was the huge amount of flexibility in planning (date flexibility for my dad's health, we could choose our own caterer) and Isadora and Ben's love of animals (our dog could stay in the Manor and be in the ceremony!) The beauty of the Manor and the view of the mountains were the cherry on top, along with the super reasonable price! When you book Rixey, you not only get a venue, but you get a wedding planner too! We tailored our packed wedding (the busiest at Rixey) to include a horse drawn carriage, a lion dance, and more! Every moment was filled with events, and Isadora helped me plan all the logistics! Isadora will also make sure you have the perfect wedding (for you and your fiance, not anyone else), and she even volunteers to be the "bad guy" if family members ask why rules have been made (ie. not allowing kids to the reception, etc). Ben ensures that their bus... Read more

  • Ben and Isadora are the best! My husband and I fell in love with the Manor as soon as we arrived. It is so beautiful and well kept. It offers flexibility to have your wedding inside or outdoors on the lawn or rooftop. What sold us was the ability to plan our wedding exactly how we wanted it and not have a selection of vendors to pick from. We also had the Manor for the whole weekend for the rehearsal dinner and the night before and after the wedding. Ben and Isadora communicated with us during the whole wedding process and talked us through the day. If there were any hiccups, I had no idea about them, they took care of everything so we could enjoy the day! I highly recommend them!

  • If we could give Rixey Manor 100 stars we would do it in a heartbeat. From the first day we visited Rixey we felt like we were at home, and after spending two hours with Isadora and Ben we felt like we were leaving old friends. We were beyond excited that we also happened to have found the place where we would get married. Throughout the entire planning process Isadora and Ben were there to address any question/concern that we had – there is helpful and then there are wedding fairy godparents and Isadora and Ben are the latter. They have enough experience and creativity to not only find a solution to your problems, but to also use your ideas/what they know about you as a couple to help come up with a plan that is a 100 times better than your original one. (Our cookie table was probably the best cookie table anyone had ever seen, thanks to Isadora) So, not only do you end up with wedding fairy godparents if you choose Rixey Manor, you also end up with a truly STUNNING venue tha...

  • Ben and Isadora host an outstanding venue and are the most warm and supportive people you could hope for. You aren't just a name in a file, but a part of their family. They go out of their way to welcome you into their venue and just make the whole experience better. We had our rehearsal dinner and wedding here and all our guests loved the venue, how comfortably the events occurred, and loved how friendly and engaging Ben and Isadora are. It's tough to find people who care as much about your wedding as you do, but not with Ben and Isadora! It's a beautiful venue, both inside and out, easy to plan a whole weekend there with activities for your guests. Highly recommend Rixey Manor. My wedding would not have been as successful and as enjoyed by our guests if it weren't for them.

  • This place is amazing. The house is beautiful the grounds are beautiful. It makes for beautiful pictures especially if you love horses. My husband and I got married there 6-4-16 and we both have nothing but great things to say about Ricey Manor. The owners are the best! Isadora and Ben go above and beyond to help the bride and groom. Isadora is full of ideas to help especially when you are like me and have reached that point when the thought of more ideas or more decisions makes you want to hide. She is also very crafty making a last minute boutineer out of extra flowers and also adding more flowers to the arch we used. She is also very good at keeping things flowing smoothly. Our wedding was beyond perfect and everything I imagined and I honestly think it wouldn't have been that way if we went with a different venue.

  • I can't say enough about Ben and Isadora! They are so amazing and truly made every moment leading up to our wedding day a breeze. They make Rixey feel like home instead of any other venue that revolved brides and grooms through their door. From the moment we pulled into the drive way, we knew this was where we wanted to get married. The ballroom wasn't even complete yet but after speaking with Ben and Dora, we trusted them completely and never had a doubt in our minds that our day would be anything less than perfect. Ben can talk to anyone, the fact he is from the same place my family is from made it perfect - Dora. Man she is amazing. I had so many guests come up to me asking where I found her. They couldn't believe this amazing women/day of coordinator came with the venue. She was able to keep everyone not only on time but ahead of schedule. She communicates so well and makes sure everything is running smoothly. She was able to adjust to any questions or requests we had and made sure... Read more

  • We cannot say enough amazing things about Rixey Manor. Our guests are still complimenting us on how awesome of a venue it was. Ben and Isadora are absolutely amazing! They go above and beyond to make you and all of your guests feel welcome and special. The atmosphere at Rixey Manor is all about being together with your family. Which is one of the reasons we fell in love with it. We really liked that there wasn’t a 4 or 6 hour time limit on the manor. We also liked that it was all ours for the whole weekend. You didn’t hear the music from another wedding across the hall, like at most hotels. We loved the intimacy of the manor, its like we were inviting all of our family and friends into our home. Our wedding was November 7th, 2015 and it was a little chilly that day. Isadora had a hot chocolate bar set up for our guests when we got back from the church. It wasn’t something that we asked for at all, it was just something she does when it’s cold out. Our guest LOVED it! It felt li... Read more

  • I can't say enough kind words about Rixey Manor and the owners. You can look at the pictures and see how gorgeous the views and house are but what the pictures don’t show is that the owners are what really make this place the PERFECT location!!!! The owners go above and beyond to be sure you get the wedding of YOUR dreams and personally help you out during the entire planning process. They are always there for you when you need it whether it is a simple question about caterers or a mental breakdown over a vendor or last minute wedding party change. You just can’t beat their knowledge in planning and pulling a wedding together. For example, they were nice enough to put together a bridal boot camp for all the brides, grooms, and families where local photographers, makeup artists, etc. gave a crash course on vendors, planning, timelines, alcohol numbers, etc. which was a tremendous help. When I signed up with them, I feel like I became part of the Rixey Manor family which ... Read more

  • Matt and I were thrilled to have our day at Rixey Manor for several wonderful reasons! First, this historic home built in 1801 fit my desire to get married in a historic home and not simply in a tent next to one. Brand NEW BALLROOM! Gorgeous roof top terrace. Spacious accommodations! We indulged ourselves in the serenity of the blue ridge mountains and unspoiled vistas. Second, we were able to bring two of the family dogs to share in our day, which was important because they are family too. Third, Ben and Isadora made the magic run smoothly. These two know how to run a wedding day and know the right questions to ask to ensure that you do not forget anything in preparation. They have created a community of wonderful people who are lucky enough to get married at Rixey Manor and share the joy of choosing to spend your life with your best friend. Isadora and Ben took great care of us with great vendor recommendations and by allowing us to bring vendors that we liked. They were responsive, ... Read more

  • The most advice we received from everyone prior to the wedding was to elope. After our wedding, our advice to anyone out there will be to get married at Rixey Manor! From start to finish, the owners, Isadora and Ben, went above and beyond to make sure our day was anything but perfect. They were nothing but accommodating, from when family would ask to go see the place to when guests had crazy requests (who asks for hot sauce at a wedding?!). The venue is breathtaking and everyone commented how at home they felt. One month after and people are still commenting on how our wedding was the best they've ever been to. Really, if you want to feel relaxed and at ease the day of your wedding, this is the place to get married! So, for all the people who gave us advice to elope, they clearly did not get married at Rixey Manor, because we wouldn't have changed on thing!

  • Rixey Manor is owned by Ben and Isadora whose sincerity and hard work make this venue even more beautiful than it already is! We couldn't have made a better decision regarding our venue! Everything wound up perfect, and this happened in part because we had such wonderful venue hosts! Not only did we have an awesome rehearsal dinner/party, wedding and reception, but we also made new friends! Ben and Isadora are awesome! They embraced our plans/desires (as strange as they were) and helped to make them happen. If you schedule a viewing, you'll be hooked before you leave!

  • Isadora & Ben were a godsend. We looked at 12 different venues before selecting Rixey. When we visited, the ballroom & the rooftop terrace weren't even constructed yet, & we were actually their first booking! Their website was still a single page, and even though we were looking at nothing but dirt & an empty backyard, after looking at 12 different venues beforehand, we knew that this was it. Every venue we had looked at all looked the same, but from how the sitting room at Rixey exuded elegance to the clawfoot tubs in each room, we knew that their vision would align right with ours. And we were right. We visited post-renovation, & the ballroom & rooftop terrace that overlooked the mountains were stunning. Sunset at Rixey Manor is not to be missed. We loved the feel of the house and Isadora and Ben were marvelous. On the day of our wedding, I seriously did not worry about anything. I felt so taken care of -- from bringing me anything I needed (including snacks from the kitchen) & l... Read more
