When searching for a venue for my engagement party on 10/19 of this year, I was looking for something different than your typical hotel reception hall. The Kentlands Mansion was a hidden gem in the comfort of my neighborhood. It was everything I was looking for - elegance, with a touch of a historic feel that we dreamed of. It was the first and only venue we looked at, and signed a contract immediately because we knew nothing could compare. I worked closely with Sydney Waclawick from the start. She was extremely professional, helpful, super responsive, and flexible throughout the planning process. We decided last minute (30 days before the event) to turn what was formerly an engagement to a wedding! The Kentlands Mansion coordinators were super accommodating to the change, and allowed us to schedule multiple walk throughs to help ease our stress in the last few weeks before the wedding. Sydney helped us create our vision of the perfect wedding based on her expertise on what worked and didn't work at the venue. Her straightforward approach is exactly what we needed to finalize all the details for a successful and beautiful wedding day! On the day of, she helped make sure everything was running smoothly from start to finish. The Kentlands Mansion is incredibly unique in terms of how involved the coordinators are with each and every event that takes place there. The wedding turned out beautifully, and it exceeded anything I could have dreamed of. Our guests had only positive feedback about the set up and how the different rooms in the mansion added to the flow if our event - from the entrance on the outside lawn, to the reception area in the Yellow Room, to the dining space in the Music Room and the porch. Everyone felt they could move around freely and enjoy every aspect of the wedding without feeling restricted to a given seat. We would highly recommend the Kentlands Mansion to our friends and family for hosting their special day! Our wedding was a fairytale!!!!

We hosted a cocktail party for our son and daughter-in-law after their wedding in Scotland. The Mansion was a beautiful setting for the event. Terri and the other staff were vey professional and extremely helpful. They were very responsive in answering all my questions. They took care of all the details from table selections, to set up and clean up. We couldn't have been more pleased. Our thanks go out to Terri and everyone who helped make it a wonderful celebration!

Kentlands Mansion is a beautiful venue! Each room is complete in itself, if you did not want to decorate you really would not have to do so. The staff was helpful, patient, and professional. My daughter could not have picked a better place to have her wedding. I would highly recommend the Kentlands Mansion.

The Kentland Mansion was a superb facility for our wedding and reception. The staff were extremely helpful and all of our guests loved the venue. It has several rooms so guests can be in quiet places to the dance space. The heated, covered porch was an excellent space for a social hour between the wedding and reception. The facility is well maintained and reasonably priced compared to other local venues.

My husband and I were married at the Kentlands Mansion in June of 2010. Right from the start the mansion staff made the planning process a dream! Kristy, the mansion director, gave us wonderful suggestions for our photographer, caterer, and DJ. The mansion is not only beautiful on the inside, but is gorgeous on the outside as well. It's the perfect place for any event. We had about 100 guests and the mansion helped make our wedding the intimate affair we envisioned. Sabine, the weekend manager, made sure the venue was set-up exactly as we had requested. She was adaptable to last minute change and worked behind the scenes to make our entire evening a complete success and I was able to enjoy myself as well! The ambiance of the mansion impressed all of our guests and they are still talking about it even after the event.

We are so happy we chose Kentlands Mansion for our wedding, and can't recommend it highly enough. We found the mansion to be a much better value than similar venues in the area, and the grounds and building are beautifully maintained. The staff were very easy to work with, and easily accommodated several eleventh-hour changes to seating layouts, additional tables, timeframes, etc. We were also able to rent linens from them. They often have art and photography exhibits going on throughout the mansion, so be sure to check with them to see what may be on display. You won't be disappointed.

I had my wedding last month at Kentlands- it was incredible! The staff is wonderfully helpful and the location is beautiful. The price couldn't be better either! They provide a lot of necessities like tables and chairs, but give you the freedom to book things like the caterer without having to chose from a list of people they use or an in house caterer. This is a major plus! We had 100 guests at our wedding. The seperate rooms my seem like a negative, but it actually works out great because people can mingle around without being "stuck" near the dj/ dance floor if they don't want to be. I booked over a year in advance to be sure I got my day, but I think you could book a little later especially if you were flexible on your date. Thank you- thank you Kentlands! I highly recommend!

Beautiful venue for a wedding AND reception. We had our ceremony outside in the side garden, and then our reception inside. Definitely a smaller place, so plan for no more than 75 guests or so. Staff was very helpful and understanding, and the mansion is set up perfect for weddings. Price was great, and location couldn't have been better!

The Kentlands Mansion was the perfect venue for our summer wedding. We had our ceremony in the side garden, which was intimate and beautifully landscaped. The reception was inside and the different rooms are decorated beautifully with changing artwork displays. We had approximately 90 guests and the separate rooms worked well to have our guests mingling and taking advantage of the space. The staff was extremely helpful and always responded very promptly to my emails. The site manager the day of the wedding was incredibly sweet and helpful. They allow you to choose your own vendors and purchase alcohol, which kept the cost down. The venue is a great value compared to other similar sites in the area, and we were really pleased with holding our wedding there.

Kentlands was absolutely beautiful, and was a great buy. It's owned by the City of Gaithersburg. Residents can rent it very inexpensively, and for non-residents it's $1500. The only catch is that there's an additional $250 or so if you want to serve alcohol. The director and staff helped me figure out a wedding timeline and organize seating arrangements. They really worked hard to meet my needs and accomodate the fact that I could not make it into the location to do things "on-site" before the wedding. The Kentlands area is beautiful and the mansion is gorgeous. My guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was and what a nice place we'd chosen for our wedding.

They have a large caters kitchen, bride and groom "dressing" rooms, a spacious outdoor porch, artfully landscaped gardens, and plenty of space for dining and dancing. It's an ideal setting for a smaller wedding (less than 100), and provides a wonderfully intimate setting for family events.

The Kentlands Mansion is an absolutely wonderful venue for a wedding we just had an abolutely divine wedding there. One has to bear in mind that it is state or government owned so it is only open between 9 am and 4 pm M-F, which can be difficult if you work full time. There are also many rules and regulations that you need to be aware of, so it is good to read the contract thoroughly prior to setting your day. Despite the rules, the team at Kentlands provided the best service possible, for example, as the timing is limited to 8 hours, I needed help placing all the flower decorations in the mansion, the staff helped me with that as I did not have a planner or other friends to help me, so that was great. They also allowed me in the day prior (as there was no event the night before our wedding) to decorate the stairs. For a small intimate wedding this is the place! We were very happy to have our entire wedding at the Kentlands Mansion.

The Kentlands Mansion is a great place to have your wedding ceremony and reception. It is a one stop shop; beautiful location, rentals available, assistance with anything you need, coordinator provided on the big day. The price is great for Gaithersburg residents. They help you plan for an outdoor ceremony, but if there is inclement weather, there is also a plan for having the ceremony indoors.

The space is absolutely beautiful and picturesque. The staff was very helpful, the spaces for getting ready were perfect, and there's a side garden where you can have a private, romantic ceremony. Only downsides were that the space is broken up into several small rooms, so it was difficult to have speeches when there were 130 guests, and they do not allow red wine or candles (unless the candle is in a giant glass container).

We had a wonderful wedding ceremony and reception at the Kentlands Mansion, it is a great location for an intimate event. The natural beauty and architectural detail in each room requires minimal decoration except what you decide to do for your own theme. The staff are courteous and easy to reach for questions and information. The mansion has an open vendor policy which was important to me. If you don't know where to start they have no lack of suggestions or ideas for nearby vendors in all categories. No other events are scheduled during your day, and someone is on site to help as needed.
