We recently hosted our daughter's wedding at the Black Horse Inn and took the Inn over for the entire weekend. Both immediate families of the groom and bride stayed at the Inn from Friday to Sunday and took all of the rooms/Hunt Box Suite for the weekend. Although at first we were hesitant to do so, as a few of us live only 15 minutes from BHI, we are so very happy that we did so. It contributed to a very relaxing weekend, with virtually no need to run around or to stray from the beautiful grounds. We were fortunate to have the most glorious fall weather all weekend. The grounds and setting are beautiful and our guests couldn't stop talking about the lovely setting and the horses. The groom's parents hosted a wonderful Rehearsal Dinner on one of the terraces Friday evening. Saturday morning, hair and makeup right in the Inn. relaxing. We had the wedding ceremony for about 177 on one of the lovely terraces, a cocktail reception on the Garden Terrace and then our reception in the ballroom. An additional benefit of the Gilded Ballroom facility at Black Horse is the beautiful stone terrace just off the ballroom, allowing for additional space for guest flow and set up. We had tented it and had an additional bar, coffee station, cigar station, deserts and a cozy seating nook on the terrace. Guests loved it. We will say that with 177 guests in the ballroom for a plated dinner, along with an 8-piece band, the room was more than full and made for a smaller dance floor (until we took out 3 round dinner tables after dinner). The ballroom and connected beautiful terrace allowed for great guest flow back and forth. The Black Horse Inn staff was very helpful. The owner Lynn has many years of experience and she runs a very organized flow wedding day. She has a well-trained staff and we especially appreciated the friendly and helpful staff members Ana, Joyce, Raven and Brianna. Having the entire weekend at Black Horse made it a very happy, beautiful and relaxing wedding weekend.

The Black Horse Inn is an amazing wedding venue! And, Lynn and her team were just perfect.

My husband and I were married September 2016 and selected a weekend package at the BHI where we rented all 10 rooms. We - my family and wedding party - stayed at the Inn the entire weekend. Lynn and Ana were outstanding with coordinating all the details, along with my day-of-coordinator (Hello Love Events)---I didn't have to worry about a thing. In fact, a special thanks goes out to Ana who help my groom in a bowtie, shirt and boutonniere crisis. On the day of, he couldn't tie his bowtie, his button wouldn't stay closed on his shirt and his boutonniere broke. I am sure he was freaking out but Ana saved the day. Thank you!

Overall, our wedding was special, memorable, relaxing and such a wonderful experience. Thank you Lynn, Ana and Joyce for making my wedding the happiest day of my life! Go visit the Black Horse Inn!

The Black Horse Inn was the perfect setting for a wedding ceremony and reception. Lyn, the owner of the Black Horse Inn, was very professional, friendly, helpful, enthusiastic, and so many other positive things. The actual property is beautiful, with rolling hills in the background and horses in the fields, it's a perfect setting for a wedding. You won't be disappointed if you choose the Black Horse Inn for your wedding.

I absolutely loved my wedding at the Black Horse Inn! Lynn and Joyce were incredibly helpful and it was such a magical weekend. All of my guests ranted and raved for weeks after the event on how much fun they had and how beautiful the venue was. I couldn't imagine a more perfect wedding day for myself or my new husband. We are so happy we chose the Black Horse Inn!

Lynn and the staff at the BHI made our wedding incredibly special. The venue is beautiful - the grounds, horses, and the Inn itself! It was so special and intimate to spend the entire weekend at the Inn with our family and closest friends, and Lynn and the BHI staff made us feel welcome and relaxed from the moment we arrived. We can't wait to come back and celebrate an anniversary or other special occasion there!

My husband and I cannot thank Lynn and Kathi at the Black Horse Inn enough for an the AMAZING weekend. We had an event on the Saturday night and a number of our group stayed at the Inn. The event went perfectly and everyone had a wonderful time. The ballroom was stunning-- so warm and elegant and perfect for a group that size (100). The Inn stay was divine (I am definitely coming back and staying in Great Expectations room, esp since I didn't get to use the tub!) and breakfast was delicious. Also, I cannot say enough about Lynn and Kathy's generous welcome to all of our guests throughout (and even before) the weekend, and your attention to detail throughout the planning process. They both have the unique ability to be very warm, welcoming, and fun, but at the same time extremely professional and detail-oriented. We so appreciate the combination of those qualities and do not think they exist in too many places. We had a feeling the Black Horse was unique and special, and it truly is. It is a gorgeous setting and a very warm and welcoming place.

When we first met Lynn and Kathi to talk about doing our event at the Black Horse, we said we wanted a FUN PARTY--and we could not have asked for more. I am happy to provide my wonderful experience with the Black Horse to any prospective clients who might want to talk to a live person.

We held our Wedding Weekend at Black Horse Inn - rehearsal dinner, ceremony & reception, and Sunday brunch. It was perfect! Lynn and Kathi were both fantastic throughout the planning process, answering my questions quickly and coordinating with my vendors. During our weekend event, every detail was taken care of by their team and my family and friends felt so welcomed and at home staying at the inn. Kathi in particular was SO wonderful, and took great care to help with any and everything we could think of. On our wedding day, she took great care of me and made sure that I always had everything I needed, helped find people around the property, and of course helped get my group arranged and down the aisle in one piece. I felt completely at ease when the time came for the ceremony because I knew that Kathi and Lynn had everything under control.
The venue itself is GORGEOUS, a perfect place for a great weekend. I would recommend that you let your vendors know (especially those coming from the DC area) that there is sometimes traffic on 66 coming out to the venue, as a couple of my vendors were just a touch late due to traffic (but certainly not so late that they missed anything or anyone had to scramble). In our group staying at the inn were 5 children (including 1 toddler), who all loved playing around the patio and grounds, and they all felt welcomed and encouraged to enjoy themselves all weekend. The banquet hall is exquisite and classy, my guests were all very impressed with the look and feel. It is beautiful without feeling overbearing and stuffy. The price value for our wedding weekend was very reasonable, especially when you factor in the very personalized and truthfully caring service you will receive during your stay.
Overall, I DEFINITELY recommend Black Horse Inn for your wedding. The entire experience is fantastic and I wish I could go back and live it again and again. The venue and grounds are beautiful, and the service here is unparalleled.

The Black Horse Inn is like a dream. It is the most beautiful place. From the beautiful green pastures, to the horses grazing, the historic Inn and the grand reception hall. It is the perfect place for a weekend long wedding. My husband and I are so happy we chose BHI for our wedding venue. Thanks to Lynn and Kathi( Inn owner and Inn Manager) for making The Black Horse Inn truly feel like home to us. My husband and I felt so relaxed there. Lynn and Kathi were amazing from the start. They were so on top of everything, and fantastic coordinators. We visited multiple times, had many email exchanges, and had multiple phone conversations. They both were a delight to talk to every single time. Lynn really made sure our visions were orchestrated. Kathi was also wonderful. She made sure everyone had what the needed and were comfortable. Her breakfasts were to die for. So delicious! Kathi even snuck in to give my girls and I mimosas the morning of the wedding! Kathi and Lynn both have wonderful personalities and were always cheerful and positive. You could tell they really cared about us and the importance of having our wedding unfold according to our timeline. All of BHI staff were great. The whole weekend went smoothly, and there were never any complaints. It was really nice to be able to drop off decor and alcohol the Thursday before our wedding. My husband and I can't wait to go back and spend a weekend there. The best weekend of our lives. Thank you Lynn and Kathi!

The Black Horse Inn is an amazing venue to have your wedding! It was love at first sight for my daughter and my new son-in-law when they layed their eyes on the gorgeous grounds, lovely terraces, gazebo, fenced in pastures, complete with beautiful majestic horses! Then there is the Inn itself: beautifully decorated, cozy and welcoming! Lynn, the Inn's owner, was such a professional and delight to work with! Having planned weddings for 26 years, we knew we were always in good hands. Every little detail was handled for us the whole entire weekend! Having the venue for the whole weekend was like a dream come true for both sets of parents and the bride and groom! Kathi, the Inn's manager, made us all feel like we were visiting her home and we were her special guests! She was there at everyone's beck and call, making sure everything was absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue, and amazing owner, manager and staff to host our daughter's and her new husband's wedding. Thank you again Lynn, Kathi and staff. We will never forget our perfect wedding weekend at the Black Horse Inn!
