Step back in time at The Black Horse Inn, an enchanted setting for the most discriminating bride and groom. With its stately white columns, manicured lawns, beautifully appointed gardens and elegant hunt-country décor, this ideal location is only 45 minutes from Washington, D.C.

The Black Horse Inn takes pride in giving bridal couples an elegant, tasteful atmosphere in which to hold a reception, lasting the whole weekend, rather than just a few hours. Read less

Words cannot adequately describe how incredible this venue, Inn and staff are. The black horse inn provides everything you could possibly be looking for in a wedding reception venue. The setting, located on a rolling green pasture horse farm, was fantastic, genuine, engaging, and above all, absolutely beautiful. The atmosphere was extraordinarily tasteful, yet comfortable. My daughter and her fiancé wanted a venue that offered both indoors and out and The Black Horse inn fit the bill perfectly.
Lynn, the Inns owner, was a delight to work with. She has been doing weddings as a career for a long time and had every detail in place, timing for the whole celebration was perfect ---- and she did the work, the family and bridal party just had to show up!!!!! She was also so flexible (we had a photo booth and a video drone and many other little requests) and she treated the whole group as if we were the only thing on her mind. She is outstanding in her field!
The property, reception hall and Inn are breathtaking enough but when you add the amazing Black Horse Inn staff..it is sheer perfection! Kathy, the property manager was a true gift. She is an amazing organizer, manager, Inn Keeper, cook, hostess, reception manager and even more, whatever we needed, she had it-immediately. She knew all of the bridal party and family names seemingly before we even arrived. You will not find another venue more perfect than The Black Horse Inn. the attention to every detail and the way they genuinely care for their clients and guests is unmatched! We are so delighted to have found such an amazing place and incredible people. My daughters wedding was PERFECTION – Thank you to all at the Black Horse Inn who made this couples dream a reality.

It was love at first site for this bride/now wife when I first laid eyes on this venue when I was at a wedding here when I was 16 years old. I was generally not a stressed out bride, but the expertise and perfection that the staff and Lynn bring to your wedding day make it that much better. Lynn made sure that she took on every responsibility and I am pretty sure she has control of the weather, because it was suppose to rain the day of my wedding and it did not and it was absolutely perfect weather! Kathy was the most attentive and helpful personal attendant while staying at the Inn. She took wonderful care of myself, husband and our guest, and made sure we were always happy. If you want a carefree, perfect and beautiful wedding, you MUST do it at the Black Horse. I recommend doing a weekend here for the wedding as well-- this made things so much easier and better! We cannot thank the Black Horse enough for everything! <3 The Mereens

Our son and his wife got married at the Black Horse Inn in Warrenton, VA, last week. We were so pleased with this venue! The location is idyllic. The facility is gorgeous. The staff are highly professional: courteous, experienced, accommodating, responsive, and very welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend the Black Horse Inn as an excellent place to have a wedding.

We were married in October 2014 at the Black Horse Inn. We reserved the Inn for our date about a year in advance for a 2-day wedding event and peppered Lynn and her staff with questions throughout the year. She was unceasingly cheerful (and helpful) in her correspondence with us, and on our behalf to various vendors. She responds to emails within 24 hours, and acted as an effective day-of coordinator for both of our events.

In terms of logistics, throughout the weekend, she and her team consistently went above and beyond what was detailed in our contract. For example, they poured drinks and contributed additional decorations for our first event. For our second event, when our wedding ceremony went 45 minutes long, they communicated by walkie-talkie with our vendors and ensured that the rest of the evening went smoothly, helping us shift the timing of various events in our reception schedule. She also approved our outside caterer as a “preferred caterer” for the venue, reducing our catering cost substantially.

She’s also been great after the wedding. She mailed us all of the things that we forgot at the venue, including a 10lb box of wedding favors. In addition, she personally returned a keg for us to a town 45 minutes away when we ran out of space in our vehicles.

Finally, the venue itself is stunningly gorgeous inside and out. Our photographers commented on several occasions how much they enjoyed photographing us there. We reserved the entire house for the weekend for our wedding party and family. We highly recommend this, as we felt it led to a more intimate event. The rooms are beautiful, and Lynn is flexible on adding additional guests on cots, even on late notice (everyone we invited wanted to stay at the inn).

We looked at a number of venues in the DC / Northern Virginia area, and found this venue to be the best value for its cost. Holistically, we would absolutely choose this wedding venue again.

Throughout the roughly ten months that we worked with The Black Horse Inn to plan and execute plans for our daughter's wedding ceremony, Lynn Pirozzoli, and her staff, were exceptionally accommodating. Options were outlined, and, when we finalized our plans, the execution was flawless. The list of vendors that Lynn provided to us was very helpful, increasing our confidence that the "moving parts" of the wedding ceremony and reception would come together seamlessly. And they did! Numerous attendees commented on the beauty of the Inn's setting. In the end, with her hands-on approach, Lynn helped us organize a memorable ceremony - which is exactly what one wants for their daughter.

Thank you Lynn and everyone at the Black Horse Inn for welcoming us during our wedding weekend. Everyone was so welcoming and very helpful. Lynn was easily accessible and the venue was amazing. The views and set up for everything was just breathtaking. We had our rehearsal dinner at the Garden Terrace and my nephew could not get enough of the beautiful fish pond. On the day of the ceremony, we didn't get to see the Grand Ball Room until after our family pictures and we were amazed at the setup. The colors and decorations were just amazing. The design of the Grand Ball room made for perfect sun light access and set a happy mood during a beautiful dinner. We couldn't have asked for a much more beautiful venue and amazing owner to host our wedding. Thank you again Lynn and everyone at the Black Horse Inn, we will never forget the weekend.

The Blackhorse Inn was the perfect venue for our daughter's dream wedding. Lynn and her staff went out of their way to make sure that our guests staying at the inn felt "at home" from the moment they arrived. The Inn breakfasts were delicious and the presentation was exquisite. The rooms were very comfortable and the inn's decor is first-class, and restful. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the horses added to the charm as they posed for pictures. The hall sparkled with glamor, and the tented patio for the rehearsal dinner and cocktail hour, complete with chandelier, was breathtaking. Best of all, Lynn and her staff made sure that every detail was taken care of, so that we could all enjoy the day. Our guests all commented on the beauty and sense of relaxed fun they had at the wedding. When we packed up on Sunday, it felt like we were saying goodbye to family. It is with heartfelt joy that we recommend The Blackhorse Inn as the perfect wedding venue.
