Absolutely the best Mother's Day I have ever had. The VanLandingham provided delicious food and impeccable service. The dining rooms and outdoor settings were set for fine dining and the grounds were manicured as an estate of that caliber should be. My mother was delighted with the rose manager Jeff Marsh presented her and the caring nature he showed moving... More

My husband and I have stayed here a number of times because our son lived in the area. The grounds are absolutely beautiful as are the front rooms of the main building. The rooms could be so lovely with some $ and TLC.... it's a shame that such a wonderful property is being neglected. We were grudgingly rented rooms in... More

We had a wedding scheduled for the last day of Aug. 2013. Several ground keeping items were not done as promised we had to ask several times. Jackee was nice an helped a lot but was hard to find and didn't really seem interested in the event. The staff did not arrive until 3pm to start setting up and did... More

We're sorry that you were disappointed in your experience hosting your ceremony at our Estate. As you pointed out, it did rain and there was always a "plan B", in the even of bad weather. The rain plan was to move ceremony inside, into the largest room we had. When the rain came, that's what was done. We moved as... More

Mother's Day brunch at the VanLandingham has become a tradition for our family and this year's brunch was by far the best ever! The weather was incredible and the food selection was even better. Everyone at our table was thrilled with the food, this place should write a cookbook. The staff kept us happy between trips to the buffet, they... More

Our family really enjoyed the Mothers Day brunch again this year! This is our 5th or 6th year in a row attending and it seems to be better and better every time. My wife would probably be disappointed if I booked any other place. The food was delicious, as always, and the roses you give to Mothers is a very... More

My family and I attended the Mother's Day brunch at Van Landingham and we had an appalling experience. We were seated basically in the parking lot, in an area right by a dirty cigarette trash can. As a college student, I worked in bars where patrons throw peanuts on the floor, and we still cared enough to sweep up cigarette... More

We're sorry that your brunch experience was not satisfactory. When you arrived you made us aware that you weren't happy with your table assignment and unfortunately we weren't able to accommodate you at another assigned table. We would have if we could have. I think if you'll visit with us again sometime you'll find that your experience was uncharacteristic of... More

Horrible. My assigned wedding director, Melissa [--], was unprofessional and unprepared. When my bridal party and I arrived, we did not have a room to get dressed in. Unbeknownst to me, Melissa had triple booked the venue. One bridal party was preparing in the carriage house (which was supposed to be saved for me) and one bridal party had the... More

We're sorry to learn of your difficulties. To be clear, the "triple booking" you refer to was over the course of a weekend, not on the day of your wedding party. We did have three events that weekend, but the prior two, on the previous day, should not have affected your event in any way. When you arrived to begin... More

We had my daughter’s wedding here in September 2012. Could not be more disappointed with the event coordinator Melissa. She is friendly and helpful until you sign and pay. After that she does not return calls or emails. The area we planned to have our guest seated for dinner was covered in straw and seed we discovered at the rehearsal... More

We're sorry to hear that your overall impression of our Estate was not positive. We're glad to hear that the party itself went well. While it's true that our five acre property does require unexpected maintenance from time to time, especially during the Fall grass planting season, you did have seven other formal entertaining areas to choose from for your...

This is an OLD HOUSE in a declining neighborhood. The grounds are beautiful, the staff were polite and friendly, and the weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding. The commons rooms are cold, tired, and uninviting. The Ballroom/Dining Room has the ambience of a converted garage. We were planning to stay here for the wedding. After reading the reviews, I...

Not far from downtown Charlotte sits this estate which is surrounded by gardens. We stayed in the carriage house. The King bed was comfortable in the Magnolia Room and the bathroom spacious. The breakfast was ample and the dining room ambience old timey elegant. My only concern was that I could not locate the thermostat in the room. Yet, the... More
