With over 500 acres, Tusculum Farm, a venue located in Laytonville, Maryland, offers an authentic farm experience for couples and their guests. This farm dates all the way back to 1747 and prides itself with having the main purpose of drawing families together and celebrating life. The farm stayed in the Freeman family for many years until they decided to welcome couples and their guests to their farm who were looking for a special site to exchange their vows. Three hundred of the acres at the farm are dedicated to growing crops so you will truly be getting to enjoy your wedding on an authentic working farm. While the Freemans have enjoyed working and creating their own memories on their farm, they are excited to welcome in each new couple and help them create their own memories and celebrate their own love story here at the farm.

Exceptional Wedding Weekend!
We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Trish Schechtman at Tusculum Farm for our daughter and son-in-laws wedding weekend. The bride and groom lived 5000 miles away and having to coordinate details from a long distance could have been challenging but Trish was so helpful in making sure the details were discussed and vetted from beginning to end. From the rehearsal dinner at the Barn, overnight accommodations, to wedding reception in the historic house to Sunday Brunch it was a dream come true. Trish and her team were exceptionally personable, professional and talented, provided quality attention, and went above and beyond the call of duty. It's because of Trish and the Tusculum Farm Team that each event was such a celebration for friends and family, many of whom were out of state guests who raved about the entire weekend. Everyone was enveloped in the lovely atmosphere created by the caring event team from the parking attendants, to the coat checkers, fires in each fireplace, to the lighting, holiday decorations and warm outdoor pit fires. We received wonderful feedback from family and friends on how beautiful, professional, and creative the setting was. The wedding weekend and reception were magnificent in every detail, and compliments were made by all on the choice of venue. Most importantly, Trish and the Tusculum Team made us feel a part of their family, they made sure we were taken care of in every way. We have already recommended Tusculum Farm to our friends and associates!Sent on 02/01/2019

Tusculum Farm made our wedding dream come true! Having grown up in northern Montgomery County, I (the bride), have always been in love with the beauty of Tusculum. We were so lucky that, when it was time to choose our wedding venue, Tusculum had just recently opened the property as the Inn at Tusculum Farm, and it was available to be the backdrop of our special day. From our first meeting with Trish, through the entire planning stage, she and her staff provided us with nothing but the highest level of expert advice, support, and professionalism. Having the Farm for the weekend allowed us to use the Hay Barn for the Rehearsal Dinner, the Coop and Carriage House as accommodations for the wedding party and the immaculately maintained grounds for our tented reception. Our guests could not stop raving about the gorgeous views. We highly recommend The Inn at Tusculum Farm as an amazing property to host your special day as well. There are so many ways that the property can be customized to any bride and groom’s needs or vision for their day as it was for us. Your dreams will come true as well! Thank you, Tusculum Farm!!!Sent on 07/12/2018

We hosted our son’s bar mitzvah party at Tusculum Farm, and it was a spectacular experience from start to finish! The farm is gorgeous throughout – from the beautiful vistas, to the warm and welcoming home and carriage house, to the fun party barn! We started the event with games for the kids in the courtyard in front of the party barn and appetizers and celebratory dancing inside the barn. We served lunch on the front lawn where we had a tent for the adults, picnic tables for the kids, and a DJ for music and games. Adults and kids all enjoyed playing on the tennis and basketball court, getting a tour of the farm animals, and just hanging out and enjoying the views! Trish was incredible to work with – knowledgeable, flexible, creative, practical, and fun on top of it! The vendors Trish recommended were all fabulous, and knew how to get the best out of the venue. Our guests who stayed over the night before felt like they were on a dream vacation. The team at Tusculum took care of everything seamlessly the day of the event. I received calls from guests for weeks after gushing over what a fantastic and special event it was! We HIGHLY recommend Tusculum Farm for any event!Sent on 07/08/2018
