In 1951, the founder of Marriott International, J. Willard Marriott Sr., discovered a beautiful piece of the Blue Ridge foothills that reminded him of his boyhood days on the family farm in Utah. After buying the property, he meticulously began to restore the primary historic buildings, their surrounding grounds and continued to purchase contiguous parcels of land including Fiery Run Ranch, creating the 4200+/- acre Marriott Ranch.

Over the following years, J. Willard would bring the farm always known as "Fairfield" back to life with a modest herd of registered Hereford cattle, a large group of black-faced sheep and through the breeding of quarter horses. J. Willard, an avid horseback rider and outdoorsman, would spend as much time as he could at his Fauquier County property and wrote in his diary, "A beautiful place, hard to leave..."

The Inn at Fairfield Farm is a historic  Virginia Bed & Breakfast located near the center of the Marriott Ranch's 4,200 acres. Guests staying at the Inn at Fairfield Farm are welcomed with a complimentary tray of delicious cheeses (4 - 6 P.M.) along with an assortment of refreshing beverages. In the morning, a memorable hearty country breakfast is served, generally between 8 - 10 A.M.

The seven comfortable guest rooms located in two unique buildings along with scenic views help our guests relax and enjoy what the Marriott Ranch has to offer.

Marriott Ranch is a unique event, meeting and outdoor activity site within the Marriott International portfolio, located just fifty miles west of Washington, D.C.. Four separate and distinctive event venues are available on our 4,200 acre working cattle ranch. Whether you are looking for the perfect place to hold a corporate picnic or an intimate setting for a wedding, Marriott Ranch provides a variety of choices to suit your needs. contact our sales department today:sales@marriottranch.com or 540-364-2627

The Pavilion area is ideal for hosting large corporate picnics for over 1,000 guests or a small team building outing for just a few. Additionally, it can be transformed into a candle lit reception or dining area for your picture perfect wedding. The Pavilion is an enclosed building with a length long retractable wall that can seat 135 guests inside or more guests may be seated in the adjoining outdoor area.

Activities range from horseback riding to deer hunting. Inn guests can feel free to hike throughout the property in search of the perfect spot for a picnic lunch. In the winter, be sure to bring your sleds, as the grounds provide ample hills for sledding. Wildlife abounds here at the Ranch and guests should keep a lookout for white tail deer, red fox, black bear and our own family of Bald Eagles. On a clear day guests can even see Skyline Drive, which is a short drive away and provides access to the Appalachian Trail.
