The rooms are decorated like a sophisticated home, with antique-style furniture, golden chandeliers, crown molding and - of course - works of art hung along all the walls that are supplemented in places by statues and curio cabinets. In one of the main banquet rooms, the walls are made of an ornate and darkly colored wood.

The history of the estate can be traced back to 1723 as a land grant. The brick mansion was constructed by the owner’s son after his father’s death in 1892. Other buildings were also constructed on the property, many of which are - like the Kentlands Mansion - still standing and in use today. The lands were purchased by Otis Beall Kent and given a name that still sticks to this day, Kentlands. The property underwent a massive reconstruction and restoration project in the hands of the new owner, and was expanded at one point to 1,100 acres as a gentleman’s estate and wildlife sanctuary.

Top Notch Wedding
We wanted to get married at the beginning of Summer and have an outdoor ceremony. We visited countless places, but none had att the attributes of Kentlands. One of our priorities was the outdoors ceremony, bridal suite, and the price. We wanted to keep it within budget and we were able. Plus we had all that was important to us.
I could not recommend more!! We had our rehearsal there, on the last walkthrough the staff were super patient and nice to us. We asked lots of questions and we were able to have our wedding just as we planned.
We are so happy that we had the chance to perform our ceremony and reception at Kentlands. If you are looking for a place that is beautiful, comfortable and perfect, stay with Kentlands Mansion :)
Amazing Wedding Venue
🏰 The staff were beyond amazing! Before the big day, they graciously toured us through the mansion, sharing room options and invaluable ideas that shaped our special day. From lending us flower stands to arranging the chairs, their help was indispensable.
Amazing Wedding Venue!

The Kentlands Mansion is a wonderful venue with a great staff. It's a charming place tucked away in a neighborhood in Gaithersburg.
Kentlands is one of my favorite wedding venues in the area. The building is awesome for getting ready shots, the ceremony (inside or out) and for the reception. Moreover, the grounds around Kentlands Mansion are ideal for bride and groom portraits. Everyone who works there is incredibly friendly and accommodating and will work with you to make your wedding a perfect day to remember. I have shot many weddings there and always look forward to the next one.
