As a child, Rosanna Smith figured she would grow up to be a businesswoman. And she did. But she had no clue her business would involve styling vignettes with vintage furniture and decor for weddings and events. Of course, her business Bella Villa Antiques & Vintage Rentals is much more complicated than styling events. She’s also busy responding to inquiries, drafting proposals, meeting with clients, coordinating deliveries, managing inventory, and many other tasks.
Autumn at Airlie is one of our favorite seasons. At this time of year, Virginia truly offers the best of both worlds with beautiful color, and comfortably warm temperatures. All the more reason to venture out and have "fun in the sun" during your stay.
Even thought Noah Gigliotti is one of Airlie’s newest employees, he is already a familiar face around the property. As an IT Technician, he has helped just about everyone with phone, computer, or networking issues. He’s a good fit for the job not only for his valuable technical skills, but also his desire to help. Noah has a history of helping others. In fact, his first career was as a mental health counselor. After 11 years, he made a career change to IT and continues to help others, just in a different way.
Many of our guests are surprised to learn our historic hotel gets its name from Airlie Castle in Scotland, which dates back to 1432. Harry Connelly Groome, who founded Airlie in 1899, visited the castle during a golf trip to nearby St. Andrews and noted strong similarities in the rolling terrain to his own property in Warrenton, Virginia.
