Abilena Plantation​

Abilena Plantation is a beautiful 1927 mansion and private waterfront estate that is available for weddings and reception. The property is located on the Neuse River just outside of historic New Bern NC. It was a primary residence from 1927 until 2008 when it was opened for weddings by John and Mary Ann Williams. Abilena is very special because unlike most venues that only give you a limited amount of time for your event, this becomes your private mansion for the weekend!  Up to 14 people can stay in the home (usually wedding party).  Everything takes place here from the rehearsal to the reception. Please call for rates and availability.  


The Fall Abilena Plantation open house and wedding show is coming up on Sunday September 17, from 1-4pm at Abilena, 2814 Old Cherry Point Road.  This is always a great way for brides to meet caterers, wedding planners, DJ's etc that work here to make the weddings so beautiful.  The show is free to attend.  

Please call or text John Williams 252-876-7599 anytime for information or to set up a tour.
