As a kid, there’s nothing worse than realizing you left your favorite toy behind on your last family trip. It’s devastating, actually.
If you haven't seen the Fox 5 Morning show, tomorrow, July 9, is the perfect time to start. Beginning at 6:45 a.m., reporter Holly Morris will be on site showing off all of the amazing amenities Airlie has to offer.
Warrenton, VA – Airlie, known for its distraction free meeting environment, abundant gardens and sustainable practices has just been designated as the first lodging destination to receive the Certified Healthy Destination by the Institute for Healthy Destination Accreditation (IHDA). The IHDA PIECES® Certification serves as a discernment tool for meeting professionals, business travelers and general consumers who regard health as a significant indicator of value when selecting destinations for leisure or business travel.
As the flowers bloom in the Butterfly Garden and the butterflies come out to play, we’re doing our part to lighten things up with some outdoor amenities and a new website.
During the holiday season, two things are certain – the presence of eggnog and the absence of conversation starters. With this post, I hope to relieve the latter with some interesting facts about this ubiquitous holiday drink.
It started innocently enough, about a year and a half ago, from a love of (reasonably priced!) craft beer, and a yen for creating my own recipes. Then came the research, and a ton of questions to the ever-patient “beer guy” at Jay’s Brewing in Manassas, Derek Satz.
We love fresh, local peaches here at Airlie. Our farmers bring us bushel after bushel and we can’t get enough. August is National Peach Month and to celebrate, we want to share two of our favorite peach recipes with you. Enjoy!
Airlie Center often touts the distinguished décor of its meeting rooms, but in the Board Room of the International House, “distinguished” takes on a whole new meaning. There, on the stone mantel and on wooden bookshelves, 13 Emmy Awards sit unassumingly, as though it is commonplace for such prestigious hardware to be found in a conference center meeting room. While Airlie Center has plenty of impressive awards to its own name, these prizes actually belong to Airlie Productions, a division of the Foundation that—though perhaps not known by most of Airlie’s guests—garnered plenty of attention for Airlie during its 20-year run.
Whether a client has extensive experience in conference planning or has never stepped foot in a meeting room before, the planning phase of any conference can prove to be a daunting experience. Be it a seminar, retreat or workshop, conference planning is perhaps the most important function of any meeting to ensure preparedness and efficiency, and to help bypass unpleasant surprises on the day of an event. What most people don’t realize, however, is that the actual meeting or conference, whether a one-day or one-week event, is really just the culmination of weeks—or more realistically, months—of planning. To ease that process for clients, every group that meets at Airlie, no matter how large or how small, is assigned a dedicated meeting planner. That meeting planner is there to help clients through each step of the planning process, so that even those who are untrained in the world of meetings and timelines and room set-ups can feel confident in getting the most out of their time spent at Airlie Center.
