Welcome to The Grand Holland Estate
The Grand Holland Estate, formerly known as The Ryan Nicholas Inn, was designed and built by Kim Becherer and her parents, Clive Edward and Marylee Waylett, to provide a beautiful space to host a southern-style wedding. It officially opened in the year 2000.
The Inn was built as a 10,000 sq. ft Georgian southern Mansion set on six wooded acres. It is filled with ornate wood and plaster moldings, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, crystal chandeliers, fluted columns, period furniture, wall coverings, and draperies.
In the center of the home is a 2000 sq. ft gathering room with a 24’ ceiling. It boasts a “Gone with the Wind” style staircase and balcony. Eighteen columns and eighteen chandeliers surround the room with elegance.
See what makes it Grand!
The Estate will accommodate any event from a romantic get-away or business function, to a wedding space of up to 250 people. The four-luxury bed and breakfast rooms feature fireplaces with beautiful wood-carved mantels, TVs, and private baths with oversized double-headed steam showers, including a jacuzzi tub and sauna.
In 2011, a beautiful, completely glassed-in, Pavilion was added to the property. This addition allowed for receptions to enjoy that “outside” wedding. It can also be enclosed but still feel open to the outside.
As of 2019, the Estate has hosted more than 900 weddings and over 4000 events.
Thank you so much for checking out The Grand Holland Estate. Our hope is that no matter where you choose to have your wedding that it be the most magical and perfect day. The day you’ve probably imagined for years and years. We’d love the opportunity to help create a wedding day that you’ll never forget.
My name is Megan Wilburn. I love to create and host. I’ve always loved creating parties and get-togethers that people can come to and leave feeling like they just had the best time ever. I’ve always wanted to take my gift of hospitality and do more than just simple parties. As the owner of the Grand Holland Estate, I get to create unforgettable moments unique to your special day.
I truly look forward to working with you and crafting a day that not only means something to you but something you and your loved ones, will not soon forget.
