Facilities and Capacity
Up to 250 guests can join couples on their wedding day at the Burke Manor Inn & Pavilion. Couples have access to the inn’s garden-like backyard space for a wedding ceremony. Upon this lawn, folding chairs can be set up in the grass to form an aisle leading to a beautiful white wedding arbor. As the backdrop, flowering trees, bushes, and gardens keep this venue private and secluded for the ceremony. The historic Victorian inn makes a charming backdrop for wedding photos or intimate wedding events. For larger receptions, a grand tented pavilion is available for couples. This tent has open sides to let fresh air circulate the reception and invites couples and their guests to step out to see the sunset or the stars. A paved floor and twinkling strings of lights make this tented pavilion the perfect location for couples and guests to celebrate the night away.
Couples can host not just their ceremony and reception, but also a bridal shower or engagement party at this wedding venue. Nine guest rooms are available as overnight accommodations for couples, members of the wedding party or other guests. Onsite parking makes transportation to the wedding simpler for guests. Event planning services are available through knowledgeable and helpful staff members at the inn. Event rentals are also available, with items that include:
The nine guest rooms at this venue are available for the night following a couple’s wedding. Each guest room in the house features a private bath with a shower or Jacuzzi tub. Guests will also find free wireless Internet in their overnight accommodations. Comfortable country furnishings make up each room. There are seven rooms in the house itself, with six on the first two floors and a penthouse on the third floor of the inn. Two cottage rooms are also available for more private sleeping accommodations.
This house, built in 1906, has recently been restored to its original glory, with all the modern conveniences guests and travelers need. Originally owned by Caesar Cone, of the textile Cone Mills, the house was sold to J.W. Burke in 1911. Four generations of the family lived in this manor house until it was sold in 1999 to the Brady Family. The Bradys turned the historic home into an inn but kept the Burke name to honor the family.

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Lori helped me to arrange every last detail, and was always very helpful. We loved everything about the venu and our experience. Everything was organized and coordinated via phone and email, and the owners are super prompt and helpful.
Also the grounds are so pretty that we didn't need to go all out on decor- it's already gorgeous!
