It is nestled between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida, ideal for guests traveling from the cities. Nature plays a large role in this sophisticated oasis, providing a memorable place for your "I dos".

Facilities and Capacity

Throughout the grounds of trees and gardens, there are multiple areas for you to choose from for your ceremony. Many of these sites also offer waterfront vistas, adding to the picturesque quality of your milestone moment. Musgrove Retreat is also well suited for engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners. As there is more than one secluded space for events, designers and planners can easily transform the venue to fit your wedding theme. There is the Maze Garden to delight and enthrall guests, as well as a lake, ponds, and pergolas covered in vegetation. The Spanish moss that adorns the trees adds to the romance of the property, giving it a classic and timeless twist. Oaks Bluff is the name of this tree-filled area and is large enough to accommodate up to 200 guests. Receptions are often held in the Riverbend Court, which is a former tennis court. Tents can be set up and there is room for up to 300 guests to celebrate your love and commitment. For even larger gatherings, the Magnolia Lawn has a capacity for 400 individuals. There is no floor here and your coordinator can help you transform the outdoor space, bringing your vision to life. Meanwhile, smaller fetes of 75 can be held in the Boat House, which is also a popular dressing room. Another refined building that is used for getting ready in is the Grove House, which is also suited for ceremonies of 50. Wedding celebrations can also be held in the Pool House and Village Creek Bank. The possibilities seem endless with the choices available, both inside and out.

History

This place of seclusion was originally constructed in 1938 by the heir to R.J. Reynolds Tobacco, Nancy Reynolds. It was named for Mary Musgrove, a peacekeeper and important historical figure. The location is also where President Carter had his first cabinet meeting before his inauguration. Both generosity and family were important to Nancy, and these values continue to drive the business. In addition, an ethos of creating dialogue and fostering connections are central to the retreat. Here, people are brought together to enjoy good food and each other’s company in the midst of the natural landscape.
