Make Those Special Dreams Come True
Imagine life at a country estate built in the 1920’s and you unlock the magic that is the Garth Newel Music Center. Music, art, fine food, and exquisite landscapes are the centerpieces of this unique experience, and it can be yours to enjoy.
Perhaps you are planning to attend a concert and spend the night, or you are creating a special weekend (or weekday) getaway for two. Maybe you are planning a lavish country wedding or a family reunion and want a unique setting that also offers fine food, gracious hospitality, and a variety of venues from which to choose.
The 114 acre Garth Newel Music Center, located in the beautiful County of Bath in the Virginia’s Western Highlands, provides you with that magical place in which to make those special dreams come true.
The Concert Dining Experience
At the Garth Newel Music Center, music is the first course! We have a long tradition of culinary excellence paired with inspiring performances. An artist in his own right, Chef Josh Elliott is known as the fifth member of the Garth Newel Piano Quartet. Complete the entire Garth Newel Experience by joining us for our post-concert dinners or picnics. Enjoy the company of the musicians in some of the most extraordinary dinner table conversation you will ever have as life long friendships are made here. Come feast your senses! Seating is limited, so plan ahead!
In addition to preparing wonderful meals that follow and complement our musical performances, Chef Josh Elliott and his team help create the menus you desire. Whether it is baked goods, appetizers, boxed lunches, carry-out, or a fully catered gourmet meal, our team is prepared to work with you.
Weddings and Special Events
A special day deserves a special space!
Host your next special event on our beautiful mountainside property. Whether you are having a small, intimate wedding, an elegant rehearsal dinner, a business work session or retreat, a sophisticated tea or a casual barbecue our team is on hand to create the event you desire. We offer a variety of menus, services and amenities to insure your special day is perfect. We offer both indoor and outdoor settings with a variety of vistas and landscapes from which to choose. Our concert hall can be transformed into a wedding chapel, a meeting room or a reception area. The concert hall, complete with stage, provides a variety of set ups for any event, and during the colder months, offers the added amenity of two wood burning fireplaces. The hall features a covered patio providing an ideal reception and cocktail area, as well as outdoor meeting or dining space. Smaller weddings and gatherings can also be held in the Manor House, where your event will take on the feeling of “being in your own country estate home . . . away from home”.
