Grey Rock Mansion stands guard over the historic estate which marks the birthplace of John Eager Howard, one of Maryland’s immortals. From the grand portico entrance, reminiscent of the entrance to Mount Vernon, to its spacious and elegant interior, Grey Rock is the perfect location for any celebration. Use of all four beautiful rooms on the main level, as well a second floor bridal suite, and the French slate patio allows us to welcome groups large and small for a plethora of occasions.

We are the proud home of Simply Elegant Catering, who creates and executes menus on-site for all of our clients. Simply Elegant Caterings is also pleased to travel to over sixty other sites in the Baltimore metro area, including but not limited to private homes, The Grand Lodge, Westminster Hall, The Gramercy Bed and Breakfast, and the 1840’s Ballroom. Welcoming you to our home is always a special pleasure, of course!

We pride ourselves on combining creativity and attention to detail with exceptional service. Every occasion coordinated by Simply Elegant is handled by our event experts. Our well-rounded team of planners, chefs, event managers, and staff work in tandem to ensure that your party is a rousing success! We will assist you with designing a menu specifically tailored to your needs and your guests. We will happily make recommendations in the search for vendors to complete the team, as well as coordinating with them the day of the event. Your coordinator will spend time with you creating the floor plan, and selecting all of the linens that will complete your color scheme. A custom timeline will let everyone to know what has been planed, and the order in which it will occur, and from that timeline our event manager will walk you through your special day. Our ultimate goal is to allow you to be a guest at your own wedding.

Be sure to see Grey Rock Mansion when it is featured on "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?- Bride vs. Groom" on the Style Network, Saturday, December 26th at 2:00!

Words can not express how well my daughters wedding went. The food was amazing and the service was perfection. I have been in the business for over 35 years so I was obviously very picky and love details...I hired a girl that works for me too do all the personals and set up the linens....she never showed and the caterer took over. I was freaking out till I talked to the manager...he was great. We had a wonderful time and were taken care beyond your imagination...Thank you Thank you Nancy, Mr. Clowney and their AMAZING staff

Grey Rock Mansion itself is a beautiful venue that is both intimate and elegant. The staff at Simply Elegant Catering was delightful to work with. We worked primarily with Diane throughout the planning process, and she was always responsive and accommodating. She worked with us to create a menu within our budget and provided helpful guidance. The staff on our wedding day was incredible. They were professional, courteous, and super helpful. We couldn't have picked a better venue and catering company. Our wedding day turned out to be exactly how we envisioned it!! We are so happy :)

This venue was amazing! I did lots of research before selecting a place and Grey Rock offered affordable prices. Most places that have in house catering jack the prices up, but Simply Elegant did not do that. The prices were reasonable and the food amazing! There was a tasting before hand that allowed me, my mom and my MOH to see what we liked, what we didn't like. We even had some special requests like Lobster rolls and a wing cake since our theme was Baltimore meets Boston. Working with Nancy, the wedding planner, was wonderful. She was very responsive and accommodating to all our requests. The day of our host made it so easy for us to enjoy ourselves and spend time with our guests. They got our food and drinks for us and were constantly making sure we had everything we needed and things were running according to plan. I highly recommend this Venue and Catering company!

Our wedding at Grey Rock Mansion was everything I wanted! I went with a classic theme- Jane Austen elegance. The staff, venue, in-house catering, etc were all excellent, ESPECIALLY Diane. She was such a pleasure to work with from day one until the wedding day. She was always available for my calls, emails, etc. and was excellent with the details and working with my month-of- coordinator!

I highly recommend this venue!

Grey Rock is an incredibly beautiful Venue, and I think we would have loved it even if the service was terrible the food was gross... LUCKILY, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. There's really not much more I can say. These people were perfect: accommodating, sweet, relaxed and professional. Big thanks to Nancy and the rest of the Grey Rock team for making everything very easy for us.

Simply Elegant Catering at Grey Rock Mansion met all of our needs and came thru with flying colors. Our guests raved about the food, some saying it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding! Simply Elegant met our budget needs and provided great food and a beautiful set-up as well. The staff was pleasant, courteous and very professional. Our guests only had great things to say about the service!!! We had a buffet setup, everything moved smoothly and was a great success. The guests have said that getting food at the buffet stations was a pleasant experience and didn't have to wait long!

The owner, Bill Clowney, is the kindest man and most professional you will work with. We loved working with him!! He was very attentive to our needs, responded quickly to e-mails/phone calls and was able to answer any questions/concerns we had promptly. He made sure the grounds were cleaned and sprayed (mosquitos were quite active at our rehearsal and he made sure to have it sprayed so we didn't have any on the day of!!) and went above and beyond to meet our expectations.

Overall, Simply Elegant Catering at Grey Rock Mansion is the best bang for your buck! A+ food, great staff, punctual, kind, courteous, professional and polite and an owner that will make sure to help you in any way he can! I highly recommend them to brides who are looking for elegance, great food and reasonable prices! You couldn't ask for a less stressful experience. The day of staff, Luis & Tia, were phenomenal! They made sure my husband & I were taken care of and always there to help if we ever needed. They helped make the day go even smoother than I could have imagined! Truly a wonderful experience, and I would recommend them for any event. If we ever have an event in the future that needs catering, I will be coming back!
