About The Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn

Built in 1820, The Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn is an idyllic wedding venue in Stevensville, Maryland. This historic inn invites couples to have an amazing wedding in a setting that will remind guests of warm summer days. You can marvel at the views of the Chesapeake Bay from the romantic pier then roam around the 220-acre estate. Here, you and your loved ones can enjoy the luxury of The Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn’s inviting event spaces.

Facilities and Capacity

The Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn is the epitome of country grandeur. The ornate furnishings in the classic English-country style, create a sophisticated ambiance. Couples can choose between two wedding venues, one being the Garden House with space for 150 guests. This octagonal wedding structure features remarkable glass doors on all sides. It boasts scenic views of the Thompson Creek which is a waterfront setting that is quite popular for outdoor wedding ceremonies. This romantic spot is set apart by its vaulted ceilings, built-in bar, and lavish chandelier. There is an additional tent space available on the nearby lawn for up to 300 guests. The Preserve is the manor’s fieldside wedding venue, which seats 300 guests and features glass doors that overlook luscious fields. Its brick patio, decorative fabrics, and chandeliers demonstrate pure opulence. A separate cocktail area just beyond the main reception hall makes The Preserve ideal for larger weddings. The inn offers smaller dining halls for more intimate weddings.

Services Offered

At this regal inn, guided viewing tours and a personal wedding coordinator ensures that you will be taken care of from start to finish. Their staff also invites couples and their loved ones to book an overnight stay in one of their beautiful 24 guestrooms. Each room varies in decoration, which adds to the charm of this inn. This venue offers a fully staffed bar with specialty beers and wines. Couples can opt for open or cash bars, while all wedding packages include a champagne toast.

Cuisine

Couples are treated to the inn’s exclusive in-house catering services when they host their wedding here. Currently, the inn only serves breakfast for overnight guests, as they exclusively cater to weddings and holiday buffets. This contributes to the exceptional catering offered, as your wedding will be their prime focus. Choose a dining experience that best suits the wedding that you envision, with options for a buffet, plated, or stationed services. Your guests can enjoy hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour passed by a butler. Then toast your happiness between speeches, and later on, the inn will take care of cutting the cake and serving it.
