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

My husband and I got married here on 6/29/2019. When I attended a wedding here the previous year, it was love at first site! The venue is amazing, and the owners and wedding coordinators are wonderful to work with. They also use "All Seated" which makes designing and table placement/assignments a breeze.
The have a bridal cottage on site that is big enough for all of your bridesmaids! 5 of my bridesmaids stayed the night and woke up with me on my wedding day. The cottage has a full kitchen, with separate make-up room suite, and bridal suite on the first floor. The top floor is an open room with multiple day beds and it's own full bathroom.
On the grounds, they have the Burlington Ice House which is where we served beer and wine during our cocktail hour. The stables is beautiful with plenty of room tables, dance floor, band, photo booth, etc and also includes a spectacular staircase in which the parents and party walked down during the grand entrance. There is also an antique bar which is where our beer and wine was served during the reception. A grooms apartment is located a top portion of the stables which includes a full kitchen, bathroom, living area and bedroom with a day bed. It has plenty of space for all groomsmen to get ready the day of.
There are also multiple different locations for you to have your ceremony whether you wanted a large wedding in front of the field (when I got married corn was growing), an intimate ceremony under the pergola with chandelier, or a nice inside wedding in front of the grand staircase.
I would highly recommend this venue!Sent on 08/22/2019
