Monthly Archives: June 2016
The longest days of the year are upon us. Our wedding ceremony garden is bursting with color and winged visitors; larkspur, tiger lilies, milkweed, swallowtail butterflies, silver spotted skippers. And around the Montfair property, animals take advantage of the long light and warm weather; Baby birds fledge, turtles and frogs slip into the high water and black bears amble down from the mountains. We have had recent sightings of Belted Kingfishers, a Night Heron and ghostly-white Indian Pipes pushing up from the leaf litter. Hike along our trails or canoe in the lake and you’ll be witness to these sounds and sights.
While you stay at Montfair at this abundant time of year, you can also explore the nearby Shenandoah National Park or drive and hike along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Take a peek at this Bloom Schedule and Wildlife Guide to get an idea of what wild beauties you might glimpse during your explorations.
We wish you happy trails, lush and lazy afternoons, and spontaneous, magical encounters!

We are happy to finally see the blue skies around here again! It rained almost everyday here from the end April through most of May. Luckily even with the rain all of our wedding couples were still able to get married outside at our wedding field with the gorgeous mountain range behind them. Even on a cloudy day the views from the wedding field are still breathtaking! There were a few weddings this spring that we thought we would have to implement the rain contingency plan but each time the rain either held off until after the ceremony was over or it stopped raining just in time for the ceremony.
Each wedding so far this spring had it’s own unique touch. We had one couple who got married on a Wednesday afternoon. One wedding the bride was a member of the band so she joined in to play a few songs with them during her reception. A couple weddings were creative with the desserts whether it was a candy-dessert bar or renting the Carpe Donut truck. Every wedding this spring transformed the lodge into a space that fits their own style.
Even though every wedding has it’s own unique feel they have all ended with an evening full of dancing followed by socializing by the bonfire on the lakefront. We are looking forward to all of our June weddings coming up!
