On a scale of one to five stars, Im going to have to give ten stars for the wonderful wedding venue/dinner Michael and Matthew (and Tina and Sam) provided our daughter and son-in-law last week (6/7/14). The natural beauty of the area is breath taking. What they have done with their landscaping is show stopping. Everywhere you turn is a wonderful backdrop for pictures. We, the brides parents, are the only ones that reside in this area. We are fortunate to count Michael and Matthew as friends and have attended several functions at Ward Manor. We encountered only quality at these events and were thrilled when the bride and groom-to-be quickly agreed to have the wedding here. I knew it would be a stress-free event for all of us, and it was. The only stress was deciding which menu options to choose. For further comparison Ill add that we retired here after 30 years in the military where we attended many first-class dinner events. The wedding was as good as the best of themactually it might have been better than the best of them.

The B&B was also rented for the bridesmaids to stay in for a couple of nights. They enjoyed their stay thoroughly and cant wait to return.

Thanks again for the wonderful memories!

Almost four years ago my boyfriend took me on a short little jaunt to a pristine little valley nestled inbetween the tiny towns of Independence and Mouth of Wilson to Ward Manor at Buck Mountain. As we turned off of Hwy 58 and traveled down Saddle Creek Rd. we passed by some of the most beautiful scenery that exists. The entrance to The Manor is flanked by two massive stacked stone pillars with iron gates opened to welcome us in. As we drove down the driveway, pasture land lies on either side with a huge 200 year old white farmhouse in the distance growing larger every second. I was told by my boyfriend that we were going to an informal cookout with a couple of friends but I had a feeling that something else was going on. Sure enough (AS ALWAYS) I was right. We pulled up to the house to find a small group of our closest friends and propreitors Michael Jenkins and Matthew Greene eagerly waiting for us. Approaching the front steps you pass by a beautiful little koi pond with garden statues spouting out arcs of water. The massive wrap around front porch is surrounded by a vast array of of botanicals ranging from 6 foot hybrid delphinium to creeping mountain flox all of which is so artistically planted you'd think they would charge admission just to walk through!!! The grounds around the Manor are equally as lovely with a big gazebo overlookimg a fishing pond and outbuildings with really cool old farm implements displayed on them. We came to rest on the wrap around porch sipping champaigne with our friends when down on one knee goes my man!!!! Out pops the ring box and proposal. After recovering from crying I said YES!!! Before we knew it we were ushered into the dining room where we dined on exqusitely cooked prime rib, succulent veggies and never ending glasses of champaigne. Afterwards we returned to the porch and chatted while Matthew fired off fireworks and twirled with sparklers to make a most special evening even more so. I've never spent the night at the Manor but have dined there(with my HUSBAND) several times since. The food is always excellent, the interior of the home is gorgeous and the hosts are the most accomodating that you'll find. This place is well worth checking out when in the Virginia Highlands!!!
