Making Your Own History at Historic Middleburg
By Margo Heine
In the heart of Virginia’s fabled horse and wine country sits a property so exquisite, it leaves a mark on the heart, Salamander Resort and Spa. This elegant resort in the village of Middleburg, Virginia, lies on 340 picturesque acres in a historically rich setting known for horse races, fox hunting, and vineyards—the perfect backdrop for the start of your journey together.
Once you’ve settled into your plush and well-appointed guest room, it’s time to look over your many options for beautification and relaxation at the spa. Allow time to soak in all the amenities: aroma-infused steam room, vitality pool with hydrotherapy jets, heated stone loungers, and the ever-peaceful spa courtyard with infinity edge pool and private cabanas.
A wide variety of venues are available for your pre-wedding gatherings, and the Grand Lawn is perfectly suited for an outdoor wedding, while three ballrooms (ranging from 1000-5000 square feet) offer opulent indoor solutions to your needs.
