Formal gardens at Northern Virginia Countryside Hotel - Airlie

Formal gardens

You'd be surprised by how little has changed in our formal gardens since they were first featured in House & Garden Magazine as part of Harry Connelly Groome's private estate back in 1907. Most notable are the stately boxwood hedges—a favored choice in classical garden architecture—that edge the formal gardens' pathways in almost fanatical precision.

Butterfly garden

Tucked into a secluded corner of Airlie's expansive front lawn is the butterfly garden, which was dedicated to Roger Tory and Virginia Peterson on Earth Day in 1995. The Petersons were renowned naturalists and field guide authors—in fact, Roger Tory developed the Peterson System for identifying animals.

Organic garden

The Airlie Berkshire Farm isn't the only source for the freshness on your plate. Planted in 1998, our four-acre organic farm annually grows about 4,500 pounds of fresh vegetables and herbs—including rosemary, mint, sage, dill, fennel, cilantro, lavender and thyme, among others—all pollinated by several colonies of local honeybees.
