Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nestled in the foothills of the Catoctin Mountains, this 1844 Greek Revival mansion is a charming example of a mid-19th century agrarian estate. Miraculously, most of the original outbuildings are still intact today, including the carriage, ice, and post houses, the summer kitchen—even the brick double-sided outhouse! On-site catering from the Smokehouse Restaurant, though, is thoroughly modern, with delectable menus based on locally farmed Maryland and Pennsylvania ingredients
  • Your ceremony options take full advantage of the estate’s stunning settings—choose from a streamside meadow, a formal English Tea Garden, and even a glass-enclosed Garden Room that affords a view of the grounds while providing shelter from chilly weather.
  • LGBTQ+ weddings are warmly welcomed here, and the expert staff are dedicated to making you feel right at home. Two versatile packages with hands-on coordination make planning easy: large weddings receive all the essentials (plus lots of thoughtful details), and the micro wedding package ensures your event is no less elegant than the grandest of affairs. Best yet, both include romantic overnight accommodations in one of the estate’s cozy, gracious guest rooms.
