It was a true pleasure to get married at such a beautiful venue. The staff was excellent from booking to wedding day. I couldn't have asked for a smoother process and I will continue to recommend this venue to anyone. Laura was a JOY to work with. She is so on her game. She responded to e-mails the moment she got into the office and was quick to catch things that could potentially cause issues down the line. I would work with her again and again if I could! The staff here genuinely care about each and every event. I felt like my wedding was their main priority and it seemed as though their main focus was making sure everything ran smoothly. The food was AMAZING and several of our guests mentioned how impressed they were. Dinner was absolutely perfect from start to finish. I would recommend this venue to every bride to be!
I had my bridal portraits taken at Duke Mansion in April. It was an absolutely stunning venue to have my pictures taken. I worked with Cinthya in setting this up. She was responsive, helpful and informative. We did look at the Duke Mansion for a wedding venue. Although it would be a beautiful spot to have a wedding, as a host you are required to fill all of the rooms (I don't remember how many, maybe 20 or so). If you don't fill them all you are responsible for paying for those unused rooms. We couldn't guarantee our guests would book there and we didn't want to be stuck with this cost. You can also only have 150 guests- this wouldn't have been an issue for us but obviously would be if you have a larger guest count.
What a gorgeous place...from the outside - the volunteer grounds crew is INCREDIBLE! I will admit my perspective of this mansion is skewed as I recently visited the Biltmore BUT the prestige at the Duke Mansion carries some serious clout. Each room accessible to the public resembles a different Board Members feeble attempt to reflect on the history of this gem...unfortunately you can tell there are too many cooks in the kitchen.
Was at The Duke Mansion for a leadership conference. Staff was helpful and friendly. Food was amazing! They we're all very accommodating and the grounds are beautiful! I will definitely be back for further evens.
Extremely beautiful, stress free environment. Beautifully kept grounds, clean throughout. Professional, courteous staff. Menu options always healthy & tasty. Reasonable rates, would be a great gift for a quite & Private weekend getaway.
