Murray Hill is a working farm with retired polo ponies and Black Angus cattle. The grand fountain and open pastures set the peaceful tone for the venue as they greet visitors passing though the tree lined entrance. Brides are amazed they are in such a tranquil setting and yet have the convenience of being 10 minutes from lodging and downtown Leesburg, and 25 minutes from Dulles airport.

Locations

There are 5 locations on-site that ca be used by the bride to transition from one area of the estate to another as she visits with her guests. These options will have water access, power, and restrooms.

The Grassy Bluff overlooking the Potomac is a magnificent location for a ceremony or cocktails.

The River Terrace is often used for cocktails as are the Formal Gardens and the Secret Garden. If a guest passes through the Rose Arbor it will lead to the Secret Garden which is surrounded by walls of mature boxwood. The centerpiece of this garden is a large reflecting pool ~ the perfect spot to float candles or flowers ~ and to have cocktails.
