We had a great experience with the Burroughs Home & Gardens as our wedding venue. We are not "over-the-top" people and this venue was perfect for us; simple, elegant, and timeless. There are so many different settings in this relatively small location: inside the home, the wrap porch, the gardens, the pavilion, the waterfront. It's easy to customize for different preferences and makes gorgeous natural backdrop for pictures! This property is truly unique and beautiful. The communications with the staff were seamless. We always had our questions and concerns addressed in a timely manner and the staff was very accommodating to our needs and requests. We truly loved every moment of having our wedding there and could not imagine getting married anywhere else!Sent on 05/22/2017

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!Sent on 06/09/2019

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!Sent on 02/23/2019
