    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!

    Loved Everything About this Venue!

    Our wedding at The Black Horse was perfect and we had the best wedding experience possible! The moment we walked onto the property and saw the beautiful grounds, the bed and breakfast, and the Gilded Fox Ballroom, we immediately knew this was the perfect place for us. We worked with both Lynn and then Michele. Both women are amazing! Michele coordinated the whole wedding effortlessly--she was very responsive to emails/texts, extremely friendly, and so knowledgeable about how to organize/coordinate all the vendors the day of so that the bride and bridal party didn't have to worry about a thing. She arranged everything effortlessly all with a smile and was a big part of why our special day was so incredible! We had our ceremony and reception in the Gilded Fox Ballroom and when they opened the doors on to the garden terrace, guests could dance and party, or go outside into the beautiful garden and enjoy some drinks and chat. It was the best of both worlds (inside party atmosphere and laid back outdoor garden scene)! My husband and I both highly recommend this venue!

    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.
