What is your starting wedding reception price?


We have ideal indoor and outdoor wedding reception spaces for your big day, with pricing starting at $4,700.


The first floor of our beautiful mansion offers well-appointed rooms and open spaces ready to be dressed in your wedding day vision. And, our sweeping waterfront estate offers immense outdoor options including our grand front porch, decking as well as sprawling space for tenting on the lawn.


How many can your venue hold?


Our River Forest Manor River Room is perfectly sized to host a seated dinner for up to 80 guests. If you plan to invite more people, we have waterfront lawn space that easily accommodates a tent large enough to hold up to 1,000 guests.


Do you have overnight accommodations?


Yes, we have overnight accommodations at the River Forest Manor, and we’d be happy to host you and your family and friends!


We offer 13 rooms on the property—nine are located in the mansion, three are located in our Bungalow House and one is poised above our Marina House with endless water views.


In total, we can sleep 30 people within the 13 bedrooms we offer.


You’ll also be happy to hear that some of our wedding packages include mansion rooms accommodations.


Do you have tables and chairs?       


Yes, we do. Our River Forest Manor River Room has 20 3’x3’ tables and 62 chairs, which may be used in that room or within other designated areas within the mansion. 


Are there other rooms or house accommodations nearby?   


Yes, there are multiple bed & breakfasts and vacation rental homes within walking distance of the River Forest Manor. You can access a list here.


Do you allow tours/walkthroughs?


We would love for you to visit Belhaven to tour our Grand Lady! She photographs well, but in person, she’s absolutely stunning.


If you would like to schedule an appointment to tour the River Forest Manor and discuss your wedding ideas and plans, please email us at info@riverforestmanor.com or call 252.943.0320.


Do you allow pets?


Who doesn’t want their pets to be a part of their big day? Talk about some awesome photo ops!


Your fur baby is allowed on the property grounds to participate in your wedding, but he/she may not come inside the mansion or onsite rooms. You will need to appoint a designated handler to care for he/she throughout the visit. 


What is the best way to see more ideas about your space? 


The best way to see our Grand Lady and get a better idea of the indoor and outdoor space she offers is to visit. We truly love to show off our venue and talk about the beautiful weddings we hosted.
