Walker’s Overlook, a venue situated in Walkersville, Maryland, gives couples and their guests a taste of the simple life through its peaceful farm setting. Even though you will feel as if you are nestled away in this historic farm, you will be conveniently located near both Washington, D.C. and the city of Baltimore. The farm house, which was built in 1757, has been serving couples on their wedding day for 30 years. This experience, combined with the pines, rolling hills, and stone and brick exterior, makes this the perfect spot for couples seeking a secluded and rustic ceremony site.
Facilities and Capacity
Walker’s Overlook can accommodate up to 275 of the couple’s friends and family. Gorgeous features abound on the property from the natural beauty outdoors to the French doors located indoors. Couples can choose from the venue’s available indoor, covered indoor, and uncovered outdoor wedding and reception sites. Even though this venue may be historic, the facility was renovated with a modern couple’s needs in mind. Couples can now enjoy modern amenities, fixtures, and features when they come and exchange their vows here. Situated just outside the venue are plenty of rolling hills and countryside views. Couples can choose the back lawn if they desire a more outdoorsy setting surrounded by the scenic views. The banquet space can also be used on your wedding day. Each wedding party will also receive a private space in which to prepare and relax in. The bridal party room includes a balcony while the groom and groomsmen have access to a man cave inspired space.
Walker's Overlook offers a full-service wedding coordinator who works with you from the time you book with us, until the day you’re married. The venue is yours for a 12 hour time frame which gives you plenty of time to decorate and enjoy your day without feeling rushed. There is a beautiful brides room for the ladies and an awesome man cave for the guys.
In addition to our wedding services we now offer honeymoons in our private villa in the St. Thomas US Virgin Islands!

Every penny we spent to have our reception here was absolutely worth it! Walker's Overlook is absolutely stunning. Everything from the trees lining the driveway, to the farmhouse, to the fields and gardens are beautiful and super well kept. We didn't talk to a single guest that hadn't fallen in love with the venue. The space is great. A kitchen, bride and groom suites, plenty of bathrooms, a high quality tent and the staff is incredible. They're super accommodating, flexible, helpful and all SO nice.Sent on 06/23/2017
Holly was our assigned coordinator and she is a total dream. We were 2 years out from our wedding date and she kept in touch, staying on top of everything from the planning stages to day of. She was available for advice when we were faced with a difficult seating situation, what to do with transportation, decor placement. She even helped us look into signature drinks. The day of our wedding, I gave Holly everything going to our ceremony location, all of our signage, favors, and decor, went upstairs to get ready and never worried about anything again. She worked with the caterer, florist and DJ all day and I came down after I was dressed and was blown away by how fantastic everything looked. After all the effort you put into planning your wedding, knowing you can trust someone to help carry out your plan is everything. There is no way we could've pulled off this wedding without her. I could go on and on about Holly, really I could! But I think you get the point!
Our wedding day was more than we ever could've asked for and we are so grateful to Holly, Mark and the team at Walker's Overlook. We could never thank them enough! Without hesitation, we would recommend Walker's 100%!

It was a spectacular day!
I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the Walker's Overlook venue and staff for my daughter's wedding last Saturday (October 20)! Everything about the day and the venue was spectacular from start to finish. And I can't say enough about how helpful Shannon and the closer were in making everything happen flawlessly. They were open and responsive to any request we had, and their positive attitude and energy helped keep the day on track and drama-free. Please pass along our thanks to both of them.
Kate and Rob chose Walker's because of the beauty of the venue, combined with the vibe that their guests and wedding party would just be able to have fun throughout the day and evening -- and you delivered on both counts. Of course it helped that the weather cooperated … even to the point that the crazy winds and rain at 9:30 pm totally died down by 9:40 pm so they could have their sparkler exit. Don't know if you had anything to do with that, but I'm happy to give you credit!
As they were leaving, Kate and Rob declared that the day had been "absolutely perfect" and that they wouldn't have changed a thing. I totally agree, and could not have been happier with Walker's Overlook as the place where they started their new life together.
Thank you again for everything you and your staff did on Saturday and leading up to the big event. We greatly appreciate all of your efforts to give our daughter the wedding of her dreams!

Missi did an amazing job coordinating our wedding day! She kept in touch with me from the very beginning (a year before the day). There were so many things I wasn’t sure about, like the order of the ceremony as well as the flow of the reception. Missi was there for every step and not only walked us through before hand, but she watched and directed everyone on the day. If it weren’t for her the day would have been chaos. Walkers overlook is a beautiful spot and absolutely perfect for any wedding. They provided the house for us for the whole morning of as well as all of the tables and chairs. If I could go back I wouldn’t change a thing!
Charming venue with a delightful staff. Love working here.
I worked as a day-of-coordinated here in June 2013. In addition to loving the beautiful grounds, I was so grateful for the hands-on support of the venue manager and their day-of staff. Not all venues have staff who are willing to go the extra mile to make sure the bride and her family have the day they dreamed of. I was blessed to have their help and will definitely direct future clients and friends here.
