Green Practices

Our mission is to provide comfortable, affordable, accommodations and host magical events for families, friends, and travelers who share our passion for environmental responsibility and consideration. We take pleasure in preserving the noncommercial nature of Montfair’s landscape.

Montfair Resort Farm is a Fully Certified Virginia Green Travel Partner by the Virginia Green Travel Alliance, and a Certified Member of Green America and The International Ecotourism Society.

Green Vacations in cedar cottages built in the 1960’s and lovingly renovated using green building materials and supplies. Montfair utilizes green cleaning supplies, no bleach in our laundry, recycled toilet paper and eco-friendly toiletries. We save water and energy with an optional linen service.

Green Weddings and Events: We encourage couples and organizations to utilize Montfair’s long list of local and green- friendly event vendors and to utilize our recycling and composting services.

Nature Trail System and Native Plant Pollinator Garden: We encourage guests to get outside and explore nature. Montfair’s natural habitat, native pollinator garden, trail system, lake, canoes and bikes offer guests safe, manageable and fun opportunities to experience land preservation first hand.
