  • How can I find your Event Venue?

    • We are located about 15 miles outside of Charlottesville, between scenic Routes 20 and 231 on Turkey Sag Road, between Keswick and Gordonsville. Our physical address is 6065 Turkey Sag Road, Keswick, VA 22947. If you are traveling along Route 231, you will see signage along Route 231 as you approach, but there is not a sign at the intersection of Turkey Sag Road and Route 231. Be aware that some GPS programs, particularly those on iPhones, will attempt to guide people through neighboring properties’ private driveways. Stay on Turkey Sag Road until you see the white gates, two entrances/exits, and our signage!
