Weddings should last days, not hours.

The Pavilion at Shenandoah Woods

Shenandoah Woods offers a spectacular setting for events, especially weddings. We are located in a private valley in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Pavilion can be used for weddings while guests stay at our onsite vacation rentals making an amazing weekend for everyone. There are four venues for ceremonies and four venues for rehearsal dinners, brunches and other events. We provide as much as we can to make your planning as simple as possible; you do not need to rent: a tent, port-o-potties, speakers, lighting, tables and chairs. The Pavilion is not to be confused with a hotel offering climate controlled inside space, food services and staff. The Pavilion is available from early April through early November.

The views from the pavilion and ceremony site are so stunning that the place really does not require many decorations.


Shenandoah Woods operates fifteen vacation rentals (cabins and lodges) onsite, all within a mile of The Pavilion. If you require additional accommodations there are several more vacation properties within a mile for a total onsite guest capacity of over 100. Many more vacation properties are available within a few miles. If you book the Pavilion we can put a hold on most of our vacation properties giving your guests plenty of time to book.


There are several options for music and entertainment. Bands are welcome or you may hire a Disc Jockey, they can bring their own speakers or they may use our professional 3,000 watt sound system and light show. Another popular option is to bring your own music on an iPod or laptop to use with our PA system. Our sound system is not a wimpy hotel PA. It is a professional system designed to sound clean and powerful. Every DJ that has plugged in has been impressed. Loud music must end by 11pm.

Rehearsal Dinners, Brunches and more

In addition to the Pavilion we have three unique venues for rehearsal dinners, brunches or other gatherings. Somerset has plenty of yard space, a covered porch, a large deck, fire pit and a covered hot tub deck. Joseph House has a large manicured lawn and a 360 degree view of the valley and mountains. Willow pond is a one acre pond with a 1,000 square foot picnic shelter complete with picnic tables, a stone fireplace, restrooms and a large field.
