About The Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn

The Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn is now under new ownership by Vivamee Hospitality! With the new ownership, there will be exciting changes such as renovations to restore and update the charm of this 200 year old property.

Situated in Stevensville, MD, the Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn is a wedding venue swirling in classical sophistication. A beautiful waterfront estate located on the Chesapeake Bay, the location is conveniently located for couples in the District of Columbia, Annapolis, Baltimore, and the state of Virginia. Boasting early 19th-century design and enveloped by nature, this location provides a destination steeped in history and luxury.

With two venue locations on the 220 acres, the inn is also able to accommodate your guests in our 24 rooms. With multiple places to offer, Kent Manor Inn has the ability to host ceremonies, receptions, and post wedding brunches. .
They have a number of smaller meeting spaces that can accommodate intimate nuptials and The Farmstead, which can seat up to 300 guests. To give guests a view of the lawns and gardens, both of their wedding venues have glass windows and doors, and feature a dance floor and bar. Our Garden House overlooks Thompson Creek and can accommodate up to 75 people for an event.

The reception venues offer contemporary spaces designed with a delicate elegance. In a neutral white, couples have a literal blank space to transform with their décor. Natural light through the many windows gives the space a warm and romantic atmosphere. In the manor itself this feeling continues, through the antique furnishings and original 19th-century ornamentation, exquisitely restored and maintained. Rooms feature working fireplaces and four-poster beds for a traditional and homey feel sure to alleviate stress.

To help with the planning process, the Historic Kent Manor Inn has professional on-site event planners. In addition to their two venue locations, tents may be placed on the lawn for those seeking a sheltered outdoor space. In terms of cuisine, they have an in-house chef that creates memorable menus. As a result of Covid 19, we cannot offer buffet menus but prepare plated meals with a range of options for their celebration. Bar services is also organized on site. They also provide professional servers for serving. Setup services are offered for the ceremony and the reception, allowing you to focus on your guests and each other.

    Amazing Eastern Shore Venue

    The Kent Manor Inn was the perfect wedding venue for us. We knew that we wanted a venue with in-house catering and an option for guests to stay overnight, so we attended the open house on a Saturday last year. As soon as we saw the waterfront gazebo and the Preserve reception space, we were sold. Throughout our planning process, a new venue coordinator, Jessica, was hired. She was extremely organized and had a wonderful no-nonsense attitude that we loved. She was very quick to respond to any questions or requests that we had, no matter how small. We booked about half of the rooms the night before our wedding and had some issues checking in as there is no staff present overnight, but one of the managers, Debby, was quick to arrive to the Inn & get us checked in. Our wedding went off without a hitch, from the beginning to end. The Preserve was recently renovated with new floors, ceiling drapes, and bathrooms- all of which had the venue looking picture perfect. All of the staff at the Preserve were so enthusiastic and helpful to our guests. Every single one of our guests emphasized what a perfect wedding it was at the Kent Manor Inn. We hosted brunch at the Inn on Sunday morning for some of our guests and the staff was superb yet again. We highly recommend the Kent Manor Inn to anyone looking for a gorgeous, historic, waterfront wedding.

    Great All Inclusive Venue

    We loved everything about this venue. Being able to have the ceremony, reception, and lodging in the same location was amazing. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. They catered to everything we needed and made the wedding day stress free for us.
