A fully enclosed 40 x 80 pavilion that will seat up to 210 guests is being constructed next to the Gaines Estate house. The pavilion will have a central Air conditioning and heating system, making it comfortable to host events in all seasons.   

A flagstone walkway will connect the pavilion to the house for guests to easily access the bar area, restroom facilities and other amenities. The pavilion will be ready for 2020.

Food and Beverage Service


The Gaines Estate House will be equipped with a commercial catering kitchen that will be capable of preparing meals for up to 250 guests. Our in-house caterer is Dobra Zupas from Beckley, WV.

In addition to the reception dinner, our in-house caterer can prepare hors-d’oeuvres and breakfast and/or lunch the day of the wedding. We encourage you to use our in-house caterer, however, wedding parties do have the option to bring in their own outside caterer.  

The outside caterer must use Dobra Zupas servers and they will not be allowed to use the Gaines Estate in-house Caterer’s kitchen or food storage facilities unless arrangements are made through Dobra Zupas.


The Gaines Estate will have a lounge with a bar on the first floor, adjacent to the covered porch. A portable bar will be available to set-up in the pavilion, reception tent, or on the second floor of the house. Wedding parties may choose the beer, wine, liquor, and non-alcoholic beverages of their choice.
