Welcome To River Hills

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the rolling hills, lush green pastures and large horse barn on this family owned and operated property make the ideal backdrop for any wedding, family reunion, company picnic, graduation and camping parties. The property consists of over 100 acres. We are dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of the land and the Hazel River. This land has been in the Rixey/Lewis/Dyer family for two centuries. The owners live on the property.

Those who visit River Hills are awed by the natural beauty and serenity. The beauty of nature is perfected by the Hazel River, lush forests, and wild flowers that make a breathtaking background for your special occasion. There are wide open fields and miles of secluded trails in the woods. In a time where open land is disappearing to shops and housing, we are determined to keep our land as natural as possible and to have it remain in the family.

River Hills is located in Culpeper county approximately one hour from Charlottesville, VA and approximately an hour from Northern Virginia.

Please note this is a family owned venue on private property and therefore we are only open for private events and scheduled photo sessions.

Advice from the River

Go with the flow, immerse yourself in nature, slow down and meander
Go around the obstacles, be thoughtful of those downstream, stay current
The beauty is in the journey
