New Venue Owners!

We would be delighted to host you, and can accommodate even last minute bookings. Ask us how we can help you create your dream wedding on the farm!

Facilities and Capacity

This versatile space can accommodate couples looking for an indoor, outdoor, or covered outdoor wedding for up to 100 guests. Couples can take advantage of the 33 acre property - a covered pavilion overlooking the pasture and a green, open field perfect for games or a cocktail hour, an elevated platform in a towering grove of trees for an intimate ceremony, and an indoor barn with bathrooms, tall ceilings, and custom-made rustic chandeliers. There are plenty of open spaces and unique backdrops to guarantee gorgeous photos on your wedding day.

Pricing

We are new owners of the farm and have adopted a new pricing plan that we hope will help our couples have more control with both the planning and cost of their wedding. We encourage our couples to pick and choose what options/extras they would like to have for their special day. They can either pay for the services they would like, or they can do a majority of the work themselves. The Farm at Stillwater Spring would love to help you make your dream wedding a reality!

History

Abraham Lincoln came face to face with General George B. McClellan and his army on this farm in October of 1862 after the nearby Battle of Antietam. The land has been cultivated and grazed since the early 1800s.

Location

The Farm at Stillwater Spring is nestled in western Maryland's hill and valley country near the Potomac River. It resides just a south of the Burnside Bridge at Antietam National Battlefield. The farm is within 15 minutes of three national parks, lovely accomodations, and great kayaking on the Potomac River; offering your guests plenty of options for days trips and sightseeing while in the area.

    The best day ever!!!

    Wedding guests totaled 50 people plus vendors and our wedding was October 16, 2021. Amazing doesn’t feel like enough of a word to describe how well this venue does at taking care of its guests and bride, but it was amazing!!! It is a family run Venue and you can just feel the love and dedication that they share for there guests and farm. We had An amazing time. Michelle and her family was there with us every step of the way. Late night emails with questions, phone calls, last minute changes because of the rain and just overall ready for anything we threw at them!!!! We were given so many extra things that weren’t included to make sure our day was perfect for us and no other venue would have done that for us, that shows you how much they really care for the guests. We used the barn for the ceremony and reception and it turned out beautifully. The dedication they have to there brides and guests is just immaculate and so appreciated. I never have felt more welcome anywhere then when I was here at the farm. Highly recommend for any event not just weddings they are amazing and the farm is so beautiful!!! We will definitely book with them again if we ever needed a space for another event in the future.

    Cannot Brag Enough About How Great They Are!

    We literally booked with Stillwater a week after getting engaged and they were the second venue we called. The funny thing is that about a month or so after we booked, the venue actually changed ownership, which was a little scary at first. Once everything with the sale of the venue was finalized, Michelle, the new owner, reached out via phone. Long story short on that part, she did a wonderful job catching up and filling in the blanks in our initial phone call which laid a great foundation for moving forward in our planning process. So first things first, the price was unbeatable for a Friday wedding. Second, we had so much freedom to make the wedding everything we wanted. And Michelle and her husband are hands down absolutely fantastic! We were their first wedding but you would have had no idea that it was actually their first rodeo. Communication: it was absolutely excellent! A majority of our communication with Michelle was via text or phone calls, but sometimes things required an email, but she always responded quickly. Very seldom did it take a day or two for her to get back to us. Plus, they allowed us to come up a few times to take photos and walk through ideas we had for set up. We don’t think communication could have been any better. Right now, the venue does not have your traditional bridal suite and mancave for everyone to get ready in, but Michelle allowed us to use a part of their basement, which solved the only thing we were initially worried about. So the men got ready in the reception barn bathrooms and the women used the basement (which they cleaned up, had music playing, mirrors, lights, and little goodies). We used the covered pavilion for our ceremony which is located just behind their house. The close proximity was perfect for scooting up to the location for first look photos and then being able to quickly make our way down for the ceremony. Michelle and her husband helped us with setting things up and tearing things down, plus their maintenance guy was there to help out too. They allowed us to come up the day before our wedding to do as much setting up as we wanted. The grounds were freshly mowed, bathrooms and reception barn were thoroughly cleaned, and they cleaned off the covered pavilion too! One of the huge time savers: while guests enjoyed cocktail hour and we took our photos, they took care of cleaning up the pavilion and taking our decorations up to our truck so we did not have to tear down in the dark at the end of the night. Considering we were exhausted by the end of the evening, this was a major blessing. If you have elderly guests or guests with limited mobility, they have a Kubota RTV, which they used to transport our guests from the parking field down to the pavilion and up to the reception barn. The property itself is stunning. There are so many fantastic spots for your photos. We opted to use the covered pavilion for our ceremony and the barn for our reception because of the flexibility in case the weather didn’t cooperate. But, if you want the full outdoorsy ceremony, there are a few spots that would be perfect. In fact, if you want everything to be outside, you can do that. Michelle was willing to run an extension cord from their house to the pavilion if we needed it, so if you wanted the reception in the pavilion, it is possible! If you are getting married during the heat of the summer, the pavilion also has misters installed, but we did an early October wedding so we did not need them. We really can’t brag enough about how amazing Stillwater is as a venue and how smoothly everything went because of Michelle and her family. They definitely have a passion for this and an eagerness to make your day as special as possible. We had a small wedding so the tables and chairs they provided, at no additional cost, were also a lifesaver! Because we had a dry wedding, our “cocktail” hour looked more like a backyard BBQ, which fit perfectly for the theme/vibe we were going for, so they actually had giant lawn games and cornhole set up for our guests to play while we took photos. Not to mention the beautiful string lights inside and outside, helped add an extra touch. Michelle also in a way assumed the role of wedding coordinator. She helped keep things rolling in our planning process and the day of our wedding. Stillwater provides couples with so much flexibility to do things as simple or overtop as you want. They did not nickel and dime us for anything. They had tables and chairs we could use, lawn games, and even tiki torches, just to name a few things, that were all made available for us to use at no additional cost. We had the freedom to use any vendors we wanted too. We appreciated all of the freedom we had to make our wedding reflect who we are as a couple. We highly recommend Stillwater. You seriously will not be disappointed.

    Beautiful farm wedding and worry-free!

    Amy and Darren are the most gracious and accommodating hosts! They were so helpful in getting the farm ready according to our vision. It was completely hassle-free and they really made us feel at ease. The farm is quiet and scenic, and able to be transformed any way you want it to. They have all the amenities you need to have a beautiful farm wedding, rain or shine.
