    Beautiful Black Horse Inn

    Very lovely and historic venue. Black Horse Inn has a lot of character and is a perfect size. The grounds are elegant and couldn't have asked for anything nicer. Perfect place to host a Wedding, Rehearsal Dinner, or event. The staff was amazing, and went above and beyond expectations!

    Storybook Dream

    The Black Horse Inn was the most beautiful venue on our special day! It was an absolute fairytale to have our wedding there. Being able to have a full weekend from rehearsal, dinner and the whole wedding at the venue made it more memorable. Michelle was the perfect planner and went above a beyond all expectations. The weekend was flawless with the help of Michelle and all who work at The Black Horse Inn. The rooms were gorgeous and the food was magnificent.

    Black Horse Inn's reply:

    Mary, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It was truly our pleasure to a part of your most wonderful day.

The Black Horse Inn near Warrenton, VA is about a perfect a venue for a wedding as could possibly be. Every detail of this location is meticulously maintained and beautiful. Owner Lynn and her staff are gracious and accommodating, making guests feel special. Located in a perfect setting with graceful views, there is - uniquely to only a few venues - plenty of room to move around, but close at hand so that everything is within easy reach. One of the many things prospective couples often miss is that the place where your guests will spend several hours should have a variety of places for them to enjoy (at Black Horse Inn, there is the ceremony patio, the main house, the cocktail hour patio, the beautiful banquet pavilion, and unique specialized rooms), without being to spread out. In this way, your guests are very comfortable. This is perfection.
