The Burroughs Home and Gardens is situated on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River amid acres of lush, hidden gardens, historic grotto, flower beds, and artesian fountain – the romantic setting you’ve always dreamed of for your wedding day. The property offers an array of beautiful ceremony and reception sites within the historic home, the gardens and the open-air Gale McBride Pavilion. This Georgian Revival Mansion is enveloped in wrap-around porches and has an L-shaped staircase leading you up to the Bridal Suite with a 2nd Floor Balcony overlooking the home’s majestic grounds. The Gale McBride Pavilion not only allows a cool gentle breeze to flow through the venue, but also provides protection for you and your guests in the event of inclement weather. The spacious Pavilion can accommodate up to 250 guests including a dance floor. There is no other event venue like this in downtown Fort Myers. It is the perfect setting for wedding receptions, business conferences, reunions, socials, and other special events.
