Great place to have an event! - An Eventective User

Perfect location and clean space. This venue has my highest recommendation. The booking process is straightforward and management is extremely responsive (and friendly). They are flexible if you need special accommodations and everything you need to host (furniture, AV sound system) is included.

Best space I've ever rented - An Eventective User

We had a large party of close to 100 people. The space has everything including tables, chairs, a sound system, a projector, 2 rooms. Owner was super helpful even during the event.

Perfect place to host an event! - An Eventective User from Ruckersville, VA

The Reserve was the perfect place in which to host a Bridal Luncheon. It is a classic back drop to make your own with simple decorations. Rick Wampler was easy to work with and responsive to our needs.

Perfect space - An Eventective User from Charlottesville Virginia

Rick was amazing! He answered every question and request so promptly and professionally. The place was absolutely perfect for our 50 guests. We had a gorgeous wedding in a location that couldn’t have been more convenient. It’s right next to the parking garage even! Everything was so easy in reserving and using this space. Rick - thank you so much as this was the best day ever!
