Dover Hall is an absolutely stunning setting. My daughter had a wedding event last week and one of the owners, Jeff, and events manager, Eileen, could not have been kinder or more helpful- truly taking care of RVA bridal parties. The grand hall, the staircases, and the bride’s dressing room were all fantastic. The bride’s dressing room was large and airy with large windows, mirrors and chandelier – definitely a setting to excite a bride and set a princess mood. One of the bedrooms has a window seat with white and golden pillows that is beautiful for pictures. The pastoral landscape is inspiring and beautiful.

I do not mean to go on too long, but I have also been a corporate officer and could picture a productive and fun retreat in this setting so close to Richmond yet removed from day to day. A cozy bar area, breakout rooms (I would want the windowed ‘conservatory’ for my team…) and the wide outdoors for games would be terrific. Just cannot say enough thanks to the management staff for the great event they gave us.

The venue is absolutely stunning. The craftsmanship of this estate is incredible. Old world feel meets modern luxury. The materials are exquisite. The features are grandiose. The layout provides a series of private, comfortable havens that lead to an inviting, majestic ballroom. The bedrooms gleam with unique character. Every detail of this estate was magnificently finished. I would recommend this to anyone looking to guarantee an incredible experience.
