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.

    So beautiful

    Even though we went in a different direction I wanted to express how much we loved the Kent Manor Inn! The ground are beyond beautiful, the Inn is so well kept and is so cozy! We have stayed there before and the people really just make the whole place cozy. Prices are great for the area! Plus there is so much history there!

    Gorgeous venue for our wedding!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    Where do I even begin with Kent Manor Inn? It was an absolute DREAM to get married here!!! It's a stunning venue with so much charm and character. We looked at tons (and I mean TONS) of venues before we finally saw KMI and fell in love. Our vision included an outdoor ceremony with the option to host an outdoor reception in a tent. We were going for a rustic feel while blending in traditional Hindu/Indian traditions and KMI was the perfect place to bring our vision to life. It was large enough to host a 350+ person wedding without any issues, which is something that limited us while searching for an outdoor venue. It's been 3 months and we are still hearing from our guests that our wedding venue was so incredibly beautiful. It definitely helped that we luckily got the best weather (sunny & 70's) for our spring wedding!

    The entire wedding planning process was a breeze after we booked our wedding day with KMI. Their team did everything they could to answer our millions of questions in a timely manner. They suggested some great vendors (ranging from party/equipment rentals to transportation to bakeries and even babysitters)! Everyone from KMI was pleasant to work with and it's evident they did everything they could to make our day special. They had hosted a handful of Indian weddings in the past, so I felt more at ease knowing that they understood the different traditions and intricacies of an Indian wedding (i.e baraat, official welcome, long ceremony, etc.).

    Since we had a pretty large wedding, KMI worked with us closely to ensure there were enough chairs, tables, restrooms, etc. for our guests. Really appreciated their help with this so my husband and I didn't have to worry about it. In the months leading up to our wedding, KMI staff worked with all of my vendors to ensure they were all on the same page so things ran smoothly. Some of my vendors visited the venue beforehand to check it out and there was always someone from the Inn willing to meet with them and take them on a tour/answer their questions. On the day of, everything ran smoothly and I have no complaints. The day was beautiful and everything we could dream of.

    We also rented out the entire Inn for our guests to stay and had a great experience with that, as well. I worked with the Inn to assign rooms to our guests, they were able to call in with the CC information and received email confirmations quickly. The rooms were all great as well - each one has it's own personality and the bathrooms were modern and clean. The bridal suite was perfect for getting ready and allowed for some great photos.

    Overall, we absolutely LOVED our experience with Kent Manor Inn and can't say enough great things about them. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a gorgeous outdoor venue!
