BERLIN – A historic Berlin estate once home to a bed and breakfast has reopened as a venue for weddings and other special events.
The Merry Sherwood Plantation, located on Route 113 in Berlin, has reopened its doors to the public and will serve the community as an event venue for weddings, parties, funeral receptions and more.
Owner Kirk Burbage, who purchased the property in the early 1990s, spent years renovating the estate before opening a bed and breakfast operation on site. While the business shuttered in 2006, the house has continued to host several charitable events that have raised millions of dollars for local organizations.
“I had a wonderful grandmother, Anna Burbage, who was a mainstay in the community …,” he said. “She would have encouraged me to give back to the community and that’s what we’ve done.”
