The newest edition to the Gaines Estate Property is a fully enclosed 40 x 80 pavilion that can seat up to 200 guests. Located next to the house, the pavilion is the perfect location for wedding receptions, conferences, fundraisers, banquet dinners and much more.   


Food and Beverage Service


The Gaines Estate House is equipped with a commercial catering kitchen that is 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 for your event. 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. Parties may choose from one of our Bar Packages for their event.
