About Belmont Manor & Historic Park

Belmont Manor & Historic Park is an elegant wedding venue located in Elkridge, Maryland. Nestled in 68 acres of rolling green hills, this 18th-century property offers warm hospitality, verdant beauty, and storied heritage. Couples can make this special locale a part of their own love story.

Facilities and Capacity

The extensive site grounds host the beautifully restored Manor House as well as historic outbuildings and scenic features accrued over the years. The green spaces surrounding the manor include the Magnolia Grove, the Parterre Garden, the Bird Bath Garden, and the Aqua Garden featuring a Cabana and pond. Your ceremony can be held outdoors in the gardens, perhaps facing the pond or overlooking trees. In the event of inclement weather, your ceremony will take place under the reception tent, and your cocktail hour will move into the Manor.

Your guests can enjoy a cocktail hour in the same gardens or in an expansive peaked tent which hosts up to 250 people.

The Manor can also accommodate a cocktail hour for 120 people by utilizing the entire first floor for guests to mingle. This is often done in the event of inclement weather.

Services Offered

Your rental includes exclusive use of the first floor of the manor (accommodates 150 persons), two dressing suites on the second floor, reception tent and five formal garden areas perfect for your ceremony and cocktail hour!

Additionally, white resin ceremony chairs, gold chivari chairs and tables in varying sizes and styles are included with your rental.

Our white peaked 60 x 100 reception tent sits atop a brick tent pad and features:

  • White fabric liner.
  • Gold chandeliers.
  • Perimeter lighting.
  • Perimeter fans.
  • 20x20 wooden dance floor (cannot be replaced, repositioned or wrapped).
  • Accommodates a maximum of 250 people.

Please note, the tent is not climate controlled.

Belmont is not a full-service venue. As such, the permit holder is required to select one- full service (licensed) caterer for your event. Your caterer must be pre-approved by Belmont by submitting a Caterer’s Form, and a copy of their license and insurance certificate. Do not sign with a Caterer unless Belmont has approved them to work here.

Other Services

In addition to hosting weddings, this manor is also available to accommodate other special events and celebrations. These include corporate events, anniversary parties, holiday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, quinceañeras, and retreats. This manor also hosts public events such as movie screenings, tea afternoons, and open house tours for viewing the property.

History

The story of Belmont Manor & Historic Park dates back to 1732 when Caleb Dorsey purchased the site upon which the manor now stands. The manor itself was constructed as the home of Dorsey’s son, also named Caleb. The property has seen a succession of owners and purposes, including raising racehorses and a conference center for the Smithsonian Institute. The Howard County Recreation and Parks Government bought Belmont as stewards of this local fixture.
