Get Married in the “Garden of Eden”

A spectacular new venue in the Shenandoah Valley is now available to host your rustic outdoor wedding. Thomas Jefferson once called this area of southwestern Virginia the “Garden of Eden,” and you’ll know why when you experience the magnificent river scenery, wildflower meadows, and panoramic mountain views of scenic Rockbridge County.

Where picturesque Mill Creek meets the Calfpasture River sits the tiny town of Goshen, VA (population 400). Goshen is home to one of the largest Boy Scout camps in America: the Goshen Scout Reservation.

For the first time, Post Hill Events now welcomes couples and their guests to experience this 4,500 acre natural wonderland overlooking Lake Merriweather. The extensive property can accommodate events of up to 500 guests.

Beautiful Gray’s Lodge sits atop Post Hill along the shore of Lake Merriweather. Everything you need for a perfect event is there: a lakeside ceremony site under the trees, an outdoor pavilion seating up to 150 guests, a grand stone fireplace inside the lodge, a full commercial kitchen, and even a built-in barbecue pit.

Gray’s Lodge can host a seated reception or rehearsal dinner. Serve hors d’oeuvres and drinks on the stone patio, with comfy Adirondack chairs around the fire pit overlooking the lake. And there’s plenty of room to add spacious tents from Virginia Tent Rental.

Your wedding party can even spend the weekend on site, with lodges and cabins for overnight rental. For the adventurous, this is a perfect chance to take your kayak down the nearby Class IV rapids in Goshen Pass. Cycling, hiking, climbing, and renowned trout fishing also beckon.
