About Rock Hill Plantation House

Nestled in the gentle folds of northwestern Stafford’s undulating countryside, the house and grounds have all the advantages of a rural, pastoral setting yet remains easily accessible to Interstate 95 and Route 17.

In the true sense of Southern Hospitality, we want you to relax and feel free to sit on the porches and watch the sun set over the pasture, enjoy the shade of the large maple trees, or stroll down to the ponds. Our sincere goal is to make your event something very special to remember.

A+ phenomenal experience with Rock Hill - would absolutely recommend the venue! We had about 65 guests, and the venue was absolutely perfect for that number of people - it felt comfortably full, but not over-crowded.

Rock Hill was the first (and only) venue we visited, about 6 months prior to the event. Richard was great, and showed us around his beautiful (and impeccably kept!) property. The price for the venue is all inclusive, plus you can hire him to serve as your DJ/MC (the sound system is built into the property), and they have a day-of event planner, Erin, who works exclusively with Rock Hill. I would absolutely recommend hiring both Richard and Erin - their prices are extremely reasonable, and their combination of knowledge of weddings and knowledge of the specific venue are completely invaluable, and decreased both the stress and the time that went into planning the event.

It was clear from the beginning not only that Erin and Richard know the venue inside and out, but also that they have a ton of knowledge about weddings, vendors, and everything else you could possibly need to know. We were a little bit worried because we didn't have much of a dancing crowd and eliminated a lot of the wedding traditions - Richard recommended setting up a trivia game with questions on the tables - this ended up being absolutely perfect. Our guests had a blast, and kept asking us how we came up with the idea!

Erin did a phenomenal job getting our decorations set up, and both Erin and Richard did an excellent job of controlling the flow of the crowd and the pacing of the evening. You could tell our guests had a wonderful time, and everyone kept telling us how the event was perfect - a lot of that was because of Richard and Erin, and because of the beautiful location!

We got married here going on two weeks ago and we could not be happier with how everything turned out! The venue owner, Richard, made us feel so special and it really was like we were part of the family. We fell in love with the property the moment we saw it and actually cancelled other scheduled tours we had set up because we couldn't imagine having the wedding anywhere else! The ceremony gazebo was the perfect, simple backdrop for our wedding and the carriage house with the veranda barely needed any decorating at all. It is so well kept and made for the easiest transition from ceremony to reception. It is worth every penny - all of our guests raved about the property and if you are looking for a gorgeous, intimate wedding, Rock Hill Plantation House should be at the top of your list of choices!

I have had the privilege to play at Rock Hill Plantation House several times over the years. The grounds and buildings are absolutely breathtaking and impeccably kept. I can't think of a more beautiful and serene setting for a wedding! Rev Will and Jo Anne are amazing at what they do—they carefully manage every detail to make sure a wedding runs smoothly and in a timely manner. However, not only are they excellent at their jobs, but they are some of the kindest people I've ever meet. They greatly value their relationships not only with their clients but also with their vendors. It has been my joy and privilege to be on their preferred vendor list over the past few years. I give my highest recommendation to their services!

Fabulous place for your special wedding. I've worked there many times. The venue is unique and beautiful. Will and Jo Ann are fantastic people to work with.

For romance and elegance, look no further than Rock Hill Plantation. Owners, Reverend Will and Dr. Jo Anne Cannon's southern hospitality and caring nature make you feel like part of the family. Dr. Jo Anne Cannon's meticulous attention to detail leaves nothing to chance, ensuring an impeccable event. As well, Rock Hill Plantation's beauty is only outdone by the owner's hospitality which is why it is one of A Taste of Elegance, Catering & Events, favorite venues.
