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. Read less

Richard and the Rock Hill Plantation House took all the worry out of my wedding day. From running a straight-forward rehearsal to making sure my girls and I had everything we needed in the bridal suite the day of the wedding, the RHPH made sure everything felt as special as possible. I attended a wedding at this venue two years ago and fell for the charm of the place, so when it came time to plan my own wedding finding a venue wasn't very difficult. It turns out that since I first visited the Plantation House two years ago, the new owner Richard has made beautiful updates to the place: completely re-landscaping the grounds; adding a cast iron farm bell to ring after the ceremony; adding up-lighting and flat screen displays in the reception hall; creating additional parking spaces; and policy changes like giving brides two hours in the bridal suite before the wedding. The venue itself has many pastoral picture spots and is an ideal place for an intimate wedding. Richard and his family truly have one goal: to make engaged couples feel as special as possible. It's a goal that they met with flying colors!

The perfect venue on every level! Rock Hill Plantation House is the perfect venue for a wedding. From the beautiful bridal suite, to the well landscaped grounds, the ceremonial gazebo, and the amazing carriage house, our wedding day proved to be more memorable than we could have imagined. Richard and Meghan, you were both amazing with our guests and our bridal party. Never once did we have anxiety over any detail and you all made sure that our day was perfect. Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts!

This was not my wedding, it was my girlfriend's son's wedding. Having heard everything that went on with the planning and setting up and all the stuff that goes in to this event, there is no way I can say enough about how well Richard and Cheryl helped out, assisted, bent over backwards, insert your own adjectives here now for this wedding. I have no doubt they would treat yours any different. I went out for rehearsal and the actual ceremony: the entire thing went off perfect. If I had a daughter or son getting married, I would tell them to go there and not look anywhere else. I got to talk to Richard in between breaks and found out that this was their first event since they took over the venue from the previous owners, Rev. Will and Jo Anne Cannon. They have carried on the business without missing a beat. I heard the stories of how they LISTENED to what the bride wanted, and on her day, they made that happen. Watching him with the wedding couple, listening to him talk with them, asking them what they wanted, suggesting options of what Rockhill could do to give them just what they wanted, was incredible. Richard is so engaging and genuine, it is like talking to your best friend. I can think of nothing that the couple asked for that he was not able to provide for them. Except for the weather, but even then, he did get it to stop raining so the ceremony could be outside. :) I didn't see inside the bride's dressing room, but I saw photos, it seemed just what any girl would want. The great room in the main house just feels wedding like. The whole venue, from the gazebo to the reception hall, the brick walkways, stately old trees in front of the house, just a perfect place to exchange your vows.
I did not get married there, so I can't speak for the bride and groom. I have tried to tell you what I saw and how they were treated and how any and everything they needed, wanted, requested, it was there. Rockhill truly made it the bride's day.

Rock Hill Plantation House provided us with a beautiful, flawless wedding. The weather was not what we'd hoped for (cold and rainy on the first day of spring), but everything went off without a hitch and we could not have asked for a more perfect night. The grounds are gorgeous - rolling hills, a beautiful house with elegant furniture and a lovely bridal suite for getting ready and post-ceremony pictures in the main house. It is awesome that the carriage house reception hall is on the grounds as well - it allows for seamless transitioning from ceremony to party-time! Richard, the new owner, is absolutely WONDERFUL and will do any and everything to ensure an awesome experience. We were so blessed to find the venue and honored to be Richard's first wedding as new owner. The reception hall is completely modernized with recessed lighting and built-in surround sound, big screen TVs and elegant bathrooms. You get a LOT of bang for your buck when you choose Rock Hill - and you MUST take advantage or Richard's DJ skills as well! Rock Hill is seriously a one-stop shop for an EXCELLENT price. Richard provided us with an amazing wedding day, and we will never be able to thank him or his family enough!

I don't really think I could say enough about Rock Hill Plantation. We found them by fluke, after having a few strike outs on venues up near the Washington D.C. area. From the very first email we sent asking if we could come see the venue, to the day of my wedding I couldn't have been happier. JoAnne and Rev. Will (now retired) did an excellent job of making sure that we had the wedding of our dreams. The venue looked amazing and they helped me turn my vision into a reality which was crazy. It cannot thank Rock Hill enough for having the perfect wedding venue and would tell everyone to check them out!

Where to begin...

I am so happy to have met Jo Anne and Rev. Will Cannon, they're such warm, loving people. They make your day feel very special and they do everything they can to meet your needs. I knew from the start that I wanted my wedding to be at that venue because of how beautiful the space is and how cozy and inviting they are!

The house is so beautiful and all the furnishings and details just make it feel more classic and timeless, which is how you want to feel when you're getting married. If you are looking to have a wedding outdoors and with a beautiful back drop of the farm with the rolling hills and trees all around, then this is the venue for you!!

I would recommend to all my friends!!

I could not have asked for a better venue experience. Will & Jo Anne were just the sweetest people alive and clearly had the knowledge and experience to pull off the perfect wedding. If anything went wrong on the day of, I had absolutely no idea and I didn't notice. Jo Anne was a pro and Will was a great officiant for my ceremony. Their both so friendly and truly enjoy being in the wedding business. They kept in touch the entire time and Jo Anne was interested in all the details, both for professional reasons and because she is personally invested in all of her couples. Absolute perfection.

Our wedding at Rock Hill Plantation was spectacular. The service and support that we got from Jo Ann and Rev. Will was the best that anyone could ask for. Jo Ann quickly answered any questions or concerns we had leading up to our big day by either phone or email. They made all the panning of our event very simple. Jo Ann made it known to us up front that this was the brides day and that nothing or no one would get in the way of making it perfect, and come the day she stood by that. The morning of our wedding it was raining. By the time I got there I was worried and upset that I might not get the beautiful scenery of the outdoor service I was hoping for. They had a back up plan incase it didn't stop in time. When I got there Rev.Will pulled me to the side in the office where he had been keeping an eye on the weather all day and assured me that it was going to be ok and I was going to get the outdoor service I had dreamed of. He was correct 30 minutes before the rain stopped and sunshine was starting to come through the clouds. They waited until the last minutes to set the chairs up so no one had to sit in a wet chair. It was everything we could have dreamed of. It all went off without a hitch. The reception was just like the service perfect. The vendors Jo Ann uses were excellent. Everything she told us they would do was spot on along with the quality of service we received. If you are having a wedding that will fit their venue we strongly recommend the intimate setting of Rock Hill Plantation. They will make you feel more like family than a customer by the time the whole process of planing your wedding is done.

We had our wedding at Rock Hill on September 7, 2014. From day one, meeting Jo Anne and Will I knew this was the place we needed to be wed. They are a warm and inviting couple and the Plantation is gorgeous. Jo Anne is there every step of the way to help you with anything and she also serves as the day of coordinator. She has everything down like a well oiled machine! We had a few hiccups (not due to Rock Hill) and Will and Jo Anne handled them with professionalism. I couldn't be happier that we chose to have our big day with them! The ceremony that Will (who will officiate the ceremony and is included in the price) put together was beautiful and we continue to get compliments on that. I would recommend Rock Hill to any bride in the DC metro area looking for a beautiful location to have both their ceremony and reception!

Rock Hill Plantation is a wonderful place for a wedding reception. I cannot say enough about how amazing Jo Anne and Reverend Will helped to make my wedding. They were very responsive, extremely flexible, and extraordinarily helpful. You would never get this kind of interaction or personal touch with a hotel, and this service, along with the beauty of the Plantation, is what makes this place one of a kind. Not only did Jo Anne respond to every email I sent or call I made very quickly, she also provided a great list of recommended vendors. I used the caterer, DJ, florist, dessert baker, hair stylist, and makeup artist from her list and they were all awesome.
The Plantation itself is beautiful and on the day of the wedding, everything looked wonderful. Jo Anne and Rev Will warmly welcomed us and guided my guests to the lovely veranda for the cocktail hour.
I did not take advantage of the ceremonial service that the Plantation offers but with Jo Anne and Rev Will at the helm, I am sure it, too, would have been great.
I am not one to write reviews and am a pretty tough critic, but when you have an experience as positive as I did, it needs to be shared. Pick Rock Hill Plantation for your wedding. You will be very glad you did.
