Come be our guest and experience southern hospitality at the historic Winridge Manor.
Did you know? Winridge Manor, a Greek Revival home, was built in 1910 by a gentleman named Wallace Taylor. Mr. Taylor was the inventor and manufacturer of the Piedmont automobile – The competitor of the Model T❤️. (Yes, Henry Ford took the lead but we are still a fan of the Piedmont!) The Piedmont Motor Car Company operated in Lynchburg on Hollins Mill Road where the Flowers Bakery is now located. Started by Wallace Taylor, Sr. in 1916, the company sold cars under the names Piedmont, Alsace, Lone Star and Bush.
(1922 PIEDMONT )
Over the last 109 years the Manor has served as a family home, a Bed and Breakfast, a setting for a Christian movie (God’s Compass starring Karen Abercrombie) and an Event Venue that has had the honor of hosting over 200 weddings… and counting! ❤️ (There have also been some rumors of the Manor serving as the “backdrop” of an upcoming historical Christian fiction book as well! 😀 We will keep you posted on that!)
The Manor’s charming architecture, beautiful gardens and Blue Ridge Mountain backdrop beckon visitors from around the world. As the current owners, John and I (Kelly) are honored and blessed to be a part of the history of this amazing home. Currently, we run the Manor as both a Bed and Breakfast and Event Venue.
Our Winridge Staff and Preferred Vendors absolutely LOVE weddings! We look forward to each and every tour since each engaged couple that we meet has a unique “Love Story” – They are far better stories than any novel we have read and they really enjoy “going out on a limb” to include us in their wedding festivities!

Please enjoy these shots of the Majestic Winridge Manor and plan to come and visit us some time as either a Bed and Breakfast guest, a future Winridge Manor “Mr. and Mrs.” or as a “drop in” guest to say hello! We promise – an hour spent on the front porch enjoying the gardens or on the back porch gazing at the majesty of the mountains will completely transform your perspective❤️
