    Amazing Experience!!!

    I cannot say enough good things about the Burroughs Home. Not only is it a beautiful venue, but the coordinators who work there are very professional and very efficient. All of the preferred vendors were professional as well and were great with communication. But, we really couldn't get over how beautiful the venue was and how easy everything was for us on the day of the event. Getting married here was the best decision we made!

    Wonderful experience!

    The Burroughs home is such a beautiful venue with the most amazing view!!! There’s nothing better than being on the water but still being surrounded by so many trees! Cindy (director of special events) was so quick to reply with all of my questions and very flexible with us. She was wonderful to work with and helped tremendously with the flow of our special day!
