The Elkridge Furnace Inn is a wedding venue in Elkridge, Maryland. The Furnace Complex is over twelve acres on state park property, situated on the banks of the Patapsco River; just south of the Baltimore Harbor with easy access to major routes and a convenient distance from BWI. Our Manor House dates to 1810 and boasts comfortable elegance with large Federal era windows and porches emphasizing the historic nature of the property and showcasing picturesque scenes. Our Celebration Lounge and Suite are the perfect place to change, relax, and share a toast during your complementary early arrival. The Ceremony Point is surrounded by nature, and a large pergola provides a dramatic entry for the bridal party procession. Every season has its charm for an outdoor ceremony, but we do have a Plan B for times when indoor ceremonies are necessary. Cocktail hour can take place inside the Manor House which features interior elements such as original flooring, black marble mantels and double-leaf doors. The main bar is in our Historic Kitchen, and guests are also free to make use of our grand but cozy front porch and beautiful yard. There is a unique space for every aspect of your Wedding Day. For over 25 years couples have made memories here to last a lifetime. If you are planning a more intimate wedding, we have recently added our Garden House venue. Perfect for guests of 70 or less, this space is situated in the middle of our organic gardens and greenhouse. In addition to small weddings, we also host rehearsal dinners and other celebrations in this space.

We can host up to 240 guests at our Manor House, and up to 70 guests in our Garden House venue. These permanent tented spaces come with comfortable flooring, chandeliers, and are climate controlled and handicap accessible.

    Magical Secret Garden

    From the very beginning the planning process with the Elkridge Furnace Inn was amazing! The grounds are absolutely beautiful and so romantic. When our plans had to be put on hold due to covid, Donna and her team were so understanding and made our postponement seamless and a breeze. They were so accommodating and willing to work with us. The venue is magical and the food is incredible! Highly recommend for a secret garden, romantic wedding!

    The Elkridge Furnace Inn's reply:

    We do love to make Magic happen for our couples and so appreciate you taking the time to share your experience! Cheers and All the Best...Always!!

    Stefon and Karen

    Our Wedding was small and intimate. Elkridge Furnace Inn made it very special even though we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. A beautiful day at the Garden House for our Wedding Day July 24 2020.

    It was our joy and pleasure to share this important milestone with you both Karen and Stefon. You were a beautiful bride and Stefon is quite the dancer. Glad you enjoyed the day so much!! And thank goodness the rain never came!
