Discover Our Journey
Nestled into 300 rolling acres in Northern Virginia's idyllic countryside, Airlie's next-generation farm sets the table with hyper-local food. State-of-the-art conference and meeting facilities arranged in a welcoming village setting, blur the lines between indoors and outdoors.
With rooms showcasing scenic views, our comfortable and modern accommodations are tucked into seven buildings. Airlie is where global leaders have come together to change the world and corporate go-getters make big moves to outperform the competition.
Where couples tie the knot in dream-come-true weddings and travelers looking for an escape, find something extraordinary on our grounds and within themselves.
Our meat and produce don't come from a vendor. They come from our land.
Rooted in the spirit of giving, Airlie is dedicated to supporting our community.
Our environmentally-friendly LOVEwork is just another reason to adore Airlie.
Airlie has been a guardian of the Earth and champion for sustainability since 1961.
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.
Other historical treasures to seek out in your formal gardens stroll include an unassuming birdhouse, a bird basin imported from Italy and—right in the center of it all—a sun dial set upon a stone pedestal inscribed with "Lux et umbra vicissim sed semper fortitudo" which translates to "Light and shadow in turn but always a strength."
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.
In this tranquil setting, you can wander beside a babbling brook and along natural stone walls. Or simply relax in the gazebo—a focal point in the garden—as you count the butterflies fluttering by, attracted by the flora planted here.
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.
The organic garden's harvest extends beyond Airlie's kitchen. This spot is also home to 20 community plots, where local residents and organizations grow food for their own tables. But you don't need to be a farmer to visit the organic garden. Resort guests are welcome to arrange a group tour to learn about sustainable agriculture or just roam the rows on their own.
"This is the most fantastic place to relax and recharge. The staff are outstanding and take every step to ensure your needs are met!"
"This is an oasis right outside the town of Warrenton! We loved just getting away for a day and were still close to our home."
