Rooms feature working fireplaces and four-poster beds for a traditional and homey feel sure to alleviate stress.

We had the most Magnificent Wedding Weekend at the Kent Manor Inn this past weekend. Saying “thank you” isn’t quite enough to explain our immense Gratitude for the impeccable customer service, the glorious grounds & the historic Inn itself. Dolores was our wedding planner and she was Awesome! Covid had changed up our wedding plans significantly and we shifted gears and made a new plan for an intimate family-only gathering. It couldn’t have gone more PERFECTLY! She made everything so easy with her supportive & kind demeanor. She was there ALL weekend - checking on our every need. We didn’t have to worry about anything! The staff was Amazing...Specifically LaFawn, who attended to us beautifully! She took care of Everyone! LaFawn is a True Love & every guest just couldn’t say enough about her service & care! The food was DELICIOUS! The grounds are Stunning & the entire staff is Top Notch! We didn’t want the day to end! We all left feeling like we made lifelong friends! And we CANNOT wait to go back every year on our Anniversary (and more weekends) to celebrate what an Amazingly Perfect Day & weekend we all had!Thank you!!! Thank you!!!

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.Sent on 11/08/2019
