Thanksgiving at the Estate
Updated: May 30, 2021
Hi All! This is such a special time with the holidays on the horizon! We would like to tell you about an option to dine with your family over the holidays here for your consideration. The Estate at River Run will be offering a "2.5 Hour Rental" (including a 30 minute set up period) of our luxurious formal dining room in order to host your memorable holiday meals the remainder of this year. This exceptional package can be purchased for only $395. 14 glass chargers, 14 dinner napkins, restroom use, and tabletop holiday décor is all included. (If your group is slightly larger please inquire with us about how to accommodate you!)
One of our fabulous preferred caterers, Cater 2 Events, has some exciting news as well! Not only do they offer great event catering for our events, but they also have Thanksgiving pick-up or delivery services available for you to enjoy. We encourage you to check out their website for some amazing family holiday meals and inquire with Lona to customize a menu that brings a smile to your family, even if you don't dine here with us! We hope to see you raising a glass in our formal dining room this holiday season with a custom menu from Cater 2 Events for up to 14 guests. Please inquire on The Estate at River Run website with your preferred rental date.
We just celebrated our first birthday! The entire last year of our journey here has been so busy with new improvements to the property. Maintaining the historic charm of the property is no small feat! We have relocated the fountain to the front drive circle in order to give guests a grand and luxurious entry view. This added architectural element has made the entrance even more impressive to our guests! Relocating the fountain has allowed us to open up the Bluestone Terrace in order to increase the event space on the back of the mansion for tents or open air dining. New bluestone has been laid which allows for a perfect ceremony or dinner spot overlooking the river!
A new ADA bathroom has been installed on the main floor of the house off of the foyer area. This modern bathroom allows plenty of room for handicap accessibility, but it is certainly not short on style. The statement wallpaper, light fixture, and customized vanity fit right in with the allure of The Estate.
The main kitchen has received a fresh update and additional counter space that allows caterers to work straight from the main floor if they chose!
Walking into The Estate was already a dream, but now it is even better with the massive transformation of the grand front doors! Getting the proper stain color was quite a feat, but completely worth it in order to match the aesthetic of the rest of the house.

We have been blessed to host several weddings this year and are looking forward to a schedule full of events this upcoming year! It has brought us so much joy to be part of ceremony days and to allow them to make lifetime lasting memories here! "Mini Monies" have been the trend in 2020, let's hope 2021 brings more of a "normal" setting for all of us!
