Alwyngton Manor, circa 1855…a Virginia “Hunt Country” located in Old Town Warrenton, VirginiaAlwyngton Manor proudly brings forth the true tradition of the South. This exquisite and beautifully maintained “Taraesque” Southern Mansion, with large rooms, gardens and gazebo on rolling lawns, just 45 minutes from the Beltway, is the perfect location for any special occasion.
The magnificent Rose Garden at Alwyngton is a much sought after site for unforgettable photos. The entrance to the Victorian Era garden is through an ivy draped archway. One hundred pale pink rose bushes adorn the inside of the ivy-covered walls. The dramatic lily pond with shimmering gold fish enhances the already romantic setting. The Bride makes her entrance walking down the manicured lawn or in a horse drawn “Gone With The Wind” carriage. The gazebo at Alwyngton is nestled among 150-year-old trees and is an additional option for a ceremony site.
This historic site once owned by John Quincy Marr, the first Confederate Soldier killed in the Civil War, has beautifully appointed bed and breakfast rooms, all with private baths, available for overnight guests. John Quincy Marr, who built the manor in 1855 for his mother, sisters and himself. Unfortunately, Mr. Marr would not enjoy his home for long. In 1861 at the Fairfax Courthouse, he became the first confederate officer to be killed in the Civil War. The next owner, Scott Nesbitt, bought the home in the 1890’s. He raised his children there and saw his grandchildren raised there. I hope I will be fortunate enough to see my future generations in the manor also.
As you can see, we are proud of our home and its history and that is why we enjoy sharing it with you. We are here to accommodate your needs and see that you and your guests have a carefree and wonderful experience during your special occasion at Alwyngton Manor.
