Available for events year-round, Burlington is a wedding venue located in Charles City, Virginia. The main house was first built in 1818 and has been recently restored and expanded. Several features of the original property have been maintained throughout the various renovations, including the pine flooring in the living room. This property is available for both ceremony and reception and offers a choice of indoor or outdoor locations.
Facilities and Capacity
Burlington offers couples the exclusive use of the property for the duration of their occasion. Two outdoor ceremony sites are available, as well as an expansive indoor ceremony space that can double as a reception venue. The indoor wedding space in the Stables features exposed wooden beams and custom chandeliers, while the gardens and lawn offer views of the surrounding countryside for an outdoor ceremony. Both the indoor and outdoor spaces can accommodate up to 300 seated guests. The Bridal Cottage and Groom's Den allow the wedding party a private location to prepare themselves and relax before the ceremony. The Ice House Bar, an additional space converted from an 18th-century colonial ice house, can host cocktail receptions. Guests have access to the venue’s on-site parking facilities, which also includes a golf-cart shuttle for added convenience. This venue is wheelchair-accessible.
Burlington offers couples the use of parking attendants for the event, as well as assistance for setup and breakdown of the event space. Throughout the celebration, on-site staff are available to oversee the venue and to provide any additional help. Chairs and tables are supplied for events, as well as multiple mobile bars. With prior approval, couples can invite their own outside vendors for catering, beverage services, decorating, event coordination, and other wedding needs.
This venue offers one side of the wedding party the chance to stay overnight in the Bridal Cottage the night before or after the event, if not both. The cottage sleeps up to seven guests and contains a kitchen, a salon, and three full bathrooms. The Main House sleeps up to four guests and is available for overnight guests when the property is rented for a full weekend.

Gorgeous venue with amazing staff!
Look no further than Burlington for the most gorgeous wedding venue! Betty, the owner, keeps everything pristine- from the landscaping to the indoor Stables reception hall. They have seriously thought of everything!! The bridal cottage is absolutely beautiful and was perfect for my bridal party while we got ready. The venue is so versatile. In COVID times we felt so blessed to have such a large venue with social distancing options both outside and inside. Burlington went above and beyond to make sure our event was safe for our guests. We decided to switch things up and actually faced our ceremony towards the Main House rather than the field, and it was so beautiful and the most perfect backdrop. Madison and Jasmyne were also wonderful to work with. It’s truly a top notch venue. We feel so lucky to have had our wedding here!Sent on 09/17/2020

If you are looking for a venue that has it all look no further! Burlington’s staff is absolutely the best! They helped with every detail of our wedding day. They answered every question (and I had many) quickly and handled issues that came up during the planning and on our big day with professionalism that even our guests noticed! Covid made planning hard but they didn’t miss a beat and rolled with the constant changes in guidelines. The grounds are absolutely stunning and no matter if you choose to get married inside or outside, your day will be beautiful. They have the best set up for the bride and groom to relax and get ready for the ceremony. We truly cannot say enough good things about Burlington Plantation!Sent on 01/07/2021
