About Dover Hall

Welcome to Dover Hall – a refined English Tudor-inspired estate placed elegantly among the bucolic, rolling hills of Manakin-Sabot, Virginia. Conveniently situated between Richmond and Charlottesville, Dover Hall was built with one primary purpose in mind – to entertain. The estate seamlessly marries the grandeur of days past with modern amenities to provide a truly exquisite and exceptional experience for you and your loved ones.  

Magnificent in both size and style, the 2,400 square foot Ballroom creates a picturesque indoor ceremony and reception location with wood coffered ceilings and wrought iron chandeliers that were specifically customized for Dover Hall. The Ballroom opens upon a blue stone Terrace and spacious greens that can be utilized for outdoor ceremonies, al fresco cocktail hours, or grand receptions for up to 400 under an ancillary Tent. 

The Bridal Suite is an intimate space complete with white Carrara marble in the fashion of Napoleon III, an Edwardian crystal chandelier circa 1900, and an abundance of natural light highlighting the still serenity of the dressing room. Additionally, the groom and his groomsmen can relax with cocktails pre-ceremony in the Billiard Room, reflecting a Teddy Roosevelt-era trophy room. 

Complete with artisan in-house catering led by Executive Chef Lee Hendrickson, Dover Hall provides an unparalleled sense of luxury atmosphere and high touch service that will create an unforgettable wedding day and delight your guests for years to come.

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.

This venue could not have been a more perfect setting for our wedding day. To compliment the perfect backdrop for any event you need an amazing staff. Brittany Glines made my family, fiancé and I comfortable from the very start. She was so attentive, helpful and answered every question and call we had in a timely manner. She truly made the whole process so easy and fun! As we got closer to the wedding we were introduced to the Dover Hall Team. It was a seamless transition and they all work great together. Eileen the house manager and Amy the production manger along with Brittany made sure the day went off without a hitch. Being in the event industry I can be a bit picky and these ladies exceeded all of our expectations. If you want a day that is both magical and as close to perfect as a day can get I highly recommend this venue and the Dover Hall Team! Thanks again for everything :)
