Welcome to Leafwood, a charming manor home exuding southern hospitality, situated in the heart of “Rivah” Country. Leafwood is located in the triangle of Saluda, Urbanna and Deltaville, 23 miles from Williamsburg, one hour from Richmond and 2 hours from Washington DC.

Imagine strolling across beautifully landscaped lawns where others have walked for hundreds of years among boxwoods, magnolias, and a lush variety of other plantings. Dance the night away under the stars. Start a new southern custom or celebrate age old traditions such as burying a bottle of bourbon exactly one month before the wedding at the ceremony site.

Experience: A country retreat right in the village of Saluda with easy access for your guests.

If you are looking for an intimate and totally private wedding venue to treat your guests to the experience of a lifetime, you are in the right place!
