A Hidden Gem in Carroll County
The Christian Royer House was the PERFECT venue choice for our reception! My husband and I are Catholic, so our ceremony took place at our home parish, but we love the outdoors and wanted an outdoor reception without the worry and stress of potential poor weather. The minute we drove down the beautiful driveway outlined by trees to the Christian Royer House, I was already halfway convinced. One look at the property, a walk through the house and reception tent, I was sold. The property was gorgeous and included several areas for photo ops in and around the grounds (bridges, fountains, pond, etc). The house had a rustic, country, at-home feel to it with rooms for the bridal party to get ready upstairs and a game room downstairs for the gents to get ready, again wtih plenty of photo ops. The tent floor had decking so no worry about guests' heels sinking in wet grass, in the event of rain. Shortly after we hired the Christian Royer House, there was a change in management. Both previous and new owners practiced the utmost transparency with us and created a seamless transition which kept this bride from stressing out for real! I am forever thankful to all of those who took part in helping make our reception perfect. I HIGHLY recommend this venue for any bride & groom looking for a touch of outdoors on their special day! Thank you to The Snyders and Ashley S., for coordinating one of the best days of our lives. Your excellent customer service and reliability will not be forgotten.Sent on 10/15/2019

My wedding was Prefect!
My wedding was as close to Prefect as you can possibly get! The venue is gorgeous, the staff are awesome, and you can't beat the price for the size of the venue. We just got out photos back and the venue made for the perfect backdrop. Everything went beautifully and I cannot thank them enough!Sent on 10/15/2019
The Christian Royer House's reply:What an amazing review Jennifer, thank you! We are so happy that you and Greg love your treasured photos of your special day and felt that it was so close to perfect. We hope you two come back to visit for your anniversary or a weekend getaway in our Log Cabin when it is finished in 2020! Congratulations again and all the best! Warmly, Ashley
Due to the transition of ownership and not being able to take bookings at the begining of this year, we are happy to announce that we are under new ownership and have plenty of openings for Spring/Summer 2020 and are offering special enhancements to our wedding package from May-August!
The Royer House is a lovely rustic venue located in the countryside of Carrol County. Never satisfied to stand on their laurels, they are always making improvements to the property to enhance the Bride & Groom's experience. You will find that the staff is exceptionally friendly and customer service focused.
