The Burroughs Home & Gardens is the only luxury, historic, waterfront venue in the downtown Fort Myers area offering an open-air pavilion (with the option to be fully enclosed) to host a variety of special events. The open-air, Gale McBride Pavilion was built in 2016 on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River offering breathtaking riverfront views, sultry sunsets and surrounding tropical foliage. This luxury, historic property hosts a plethora of other attractive features such as the historic Murphy-Burroughs home with wrap-around porches and a verandah, free-standing fountain, a grotto (the first one built in Fort Myers) fed by an artesian well, a secret garden with reflecting pool, gazebo, and palm alley. The garden features many varieties of palm trees, elephant ears, century-old oaks, ficus, bougainvillea, and birds of paradise. The site also contains a caretaker’s carriage house and utility shed that were built to echo the home’s architecture.
The Burroughs Home and Gardens is the perfect, luxury setting for your next special event whether it be a gala, fundraiser, family celebration, holiday party or corporate event.
