About

$13k - $23k For 100 Guests

Kent Island Resort, formerly known as the Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn, is now under new ownership by Vivamee Hospitality! With the new ownership, there have been exciting changes such as renovations to restore and update the charm of this 200 year old property. Our property is conveniently located about half an hour from BWI Airport, and 45 minutes from both DC and Baltimore. Boasting early 19th-century design and enveloped by nature, our location provides a destination steeped in history and luxury.

Our Pavilion and Farmstead venues can host up to 250 guests each, while our Garden House overlooking Thompson Creek can accommodate up to 75 people for an event. The reception venues offer contemporary spaces designed with a delicate elegance. Natural light through the many windows gives the spaces a warm and romantic atmosphere. In the Manor itself this feeling continues, through the antique furnishings and original 19th-century ornamentation, exquisitely restored and maintained.

Our All-Inclusive Simplicity Package not only includes all catering options and an open bar for the duration of your special day, but also a personal wedding coordinator to assist with the planning process from start to finish, a personalized wedding cake, a complimentary boutique hotel room for the night of your wedding, and more.

Hosting picturesque waterfront views and sprawling fields of the Eastern Shore, our newly renovated 24-room boutique hotel, modern and rustic style venues, and esteemed cuisine in our restaurant, 18TWENTY, are a few of the many reasons why Kent Island Resort makes for an unforgettable place to host your dream wedding!

    Amazing Eastern Shore Venue

    The Kent Manor Inn was the perfect wedding venue for us. We knew that we wanted a venue with in-house catering and an option for guests to stay overnight, so we attended the open house on a Saturday last year. As soon as we saw the waterfront gazebo and the Preserve reception space, we were sold. Throughout our planning process, a new venue coordinator, Jessica, was hired. She was extremely organized and had a wonderful no-nonsense attitude that we loved. She was very quick to respond to any questions or requests that we had, no matter how small. We booked about half of the rooms the night before our wedding and had some issues checking in as there is no staff present overnight, but one of the managers, Debby, was quick to arrive to the Inn & get us checked in. Our wedding went off without a hitch, from the beginning to end. The Preserve was recently renovated with new floors, ceiling drapes, and bathrooms- all of which had the venue looking picture perfect. All of the staff at the Preserve were so enthusiastic and helpful to our guests. Every single one of our guests emphasized what a perfect wedding it was at the Kent Manor Inn. We hosted brunch at the Inn on Sunday morning for some of our guests and the staff was superb yet again. We highly recommend the Kent Manor Inn to anyone looking for a gorgeous, historic, waterfront wedding.
