The Inn at Roop's Mill was a perfect venue for our wedding reception and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a blank canvas with lots of room for creativity and color. Everyone was extremely professional and welcoming, the process of securing the venue was easy, and on the night of our reception everything went off without a hitch. There are a ton of great spots for photo's as well as a beautiful outside wrap around porch for guests to mingle. LOVED this venue!

Although you can't tell by the date of our wedding (Weddingwire won't allow me to back date to 2004) my wife Marla and myself were the VERY FIRST wedding and reception held at Roops Mill. As Jack, the owner, will attest, my wife and I canvased the greater Baltimore region searching for that perfect venue for both the wedding ceremony and the reception. When we pulled in to The Inn at Roops Mill, The Inn at Roops Mill DID NOT EXIST. It was an old, run down brick farm house that is now the day spa and an old run down ranch house. Jack clearly had a vision for what it could be. The reception hall did not exist yet. We saw the beautiful rolling hills, the old scaled replica of the Brooklyn Bridge to the left that was designed and built by the family that attended Johns Hopkins University back in the 1800's so they could avoid walking in the swampy area below and the old brick house that had yet to be renovated. You really had to have an imagination and a vision to what it could/would look like.

We spent half the day walking the ground with Jack as he shared in detail his vision for what he wanted to create. We were both (I more so than my wife) right there with him as he created this beautiful visual of what is will look like. It was old and charming, rustic, not pretentious or over the top. It was raw! Jack had to renovate the brick farm house and build from foundation up the reception hall.

Fast forward - he did an amazing job and completed it on time although I do remember Jack's son shoveling mulch on to a flower bed as we were pulling in on our wedding day!(smiling) It was that close. Jack suggested that Johansson's Dining House cater the wedding and the food was extraordinary!

So if you want real, rustic and not pretentious or over the top, Roops Mill is for you. It is a beautiful and serene setting toped with extraordinary service! Thanks Jack!

This venue is very beautiful with an outdoor scenic Ceremony setting and a very nice Reception Room. They partner with Johansson's Catering to provide wonderful meals (great crabcakes!!!), top drawer service, fexibility and helpfulness. It seems so rustic, it is hard to believe that it is only 3.5 miles from downtown Westminster and right off the main road (Rt. 140).

Many pictures were taken of the guests with the woods and buildings as backgrounds. This could be done from the large deck and porch that surrounds the hall.

We had our wedding at Roop's Mill on 10/20. Everything went perfectly. It was a beautiful fall day and Roop's Mill's landscaping and buildings made for great pictures! Everyone complimented how pretty the reception hall was.
If you have read comments about the owner, Jack-don't listen to them. The only time I had to deal with Jack was when I first looked and booked Roop's Mill and during that time he was nice, professional, and helpful. Once it gets closer to your wedding date, everything goes through Wendy, from Johansson's-who does the catering. Wendy is absolutely wonderful and will go over and beyond what you ask for. My DJ was an hour late, and she started making phone calls to find a back-up DJ. Knowing that she was willing to go out of her way to do that for me made my experience with Roop's Mill so much better. Johansson's has amazing food; you will not be let down!!

The outside ceremony is beautiful and perfect for any wedding. The owner keeps the area very well maintained! The reception hall is just as beautiful as the outside. The hall is well maintained as well and is beautiful even without decorations! I highly recommend this location!!!!!!!

I can't say enough good things about the Inn at Roop's Mill as a reception venue. Jack was extremely helpful when I called to inquire about the venue and was prompt in setting up an appointment. It was the only place I looked! Beautiful inside and out, it is a great place for a party. Beyond that it was a great experience working with the company. They contract with Johannson's catering and the food was amazing. Jack was very accommodating regarding drop off times when we didn't use traditional vendors and made some great recommendations for us. If you are looking for a wonderful venue for your reception, look no further!

I loved this venue for our wedding. It was beautiful and had everything that we could have wanted for our wedding. I was told that the owner was hard to work with, but he couldn't have been more helpful. A few tips for future brides...if you are having children in the changing room bring DVDs for them to watch, while there is a huge TV there isn't anything that kids would be interested in. Also watch out for the black walnuts, they can stain your dress. I didn't think that the day of coordinator was worth the money that we spent on her. She was late every time that we were supposed to meet with her and wasn't very professional. She also didn't really do anything but line us up and tell us when to walk at the wedding. Oh and she fixed my train before I walked down the aisle....but besides that she was a headache....but she isn't part of Roop's Mill, she is with the caterer.

My daughter was married on September 24, 2011 at The Inn at Roops Mill in Westminster Md. I handled all of the arrangements so that is why I am writing this review. Jack, the owner of Roops Mill, was extremely helpful during this process. He showed us around and answered every question we had and once we booked the wedding date, he made the process very easy. We had both reception and wedding at this venue. They also have a Day Spa on site that provides numerous services such as hair styling, pedicures, manicures etc. There is even a Bridal Shop, DeMario, next door. If you like one stop convenient affordable shopping, you must put this on your list of places to consider. We bought her dress at Demario and all bridesmaid dresses and all mens tuxes, too. The service was remarkable. The week of her wedding everyone went to the day spa for their manicures, pedicures etc. The day of the wedding, all the girls, including the bride, had their hair done and were able to use the day room, that is also located at the venue, to get dressed and relax before the wedding ceremony. We were not sure if the rain would hold off, but the venue was prepared to accommodate inside or out, so it was not a problem. They use a well known caterer in Westminster, Johannsons Catering. The food was unbelievable, from the presentation to the taste to the service. Wendy Johannson is amazing. Not only did she cater the affair, she was also the Wedding Coordinator. Without her expertise and professional calming manner, it would not have been the perfect wedding that it was. I could go on forever about every positive experience we had from the beginning to the end, but just let me say that we are thankful we chose The Inn at Roops Mill. We will be forever grateful to Jack, the owner, for having such a beautiful place for our daughter to be married, for his help and for having such a wonderful group of professionals such as Wendy Johannson to make this day everything we wanted it to be!!

Our daughters's September wedding was just perfect. The surroundings turned out absolutely beautiful in pictures. Mr Cagle and the staff from Johannsons catering did a marvelous job in giving her her dream wedding and making her feel like a princess. They provided alot of extra touches to make this day perfect. Mr Cagle was there to make sure everything ran smoothly and nothing was missed. It was as if this wedding was for one of his family members. This year we have attended 5 weddings and Johannsons food was the best.

I would highly recommend The Inn at Roop’s Mill to anyone looking for a lovely ballroom setting with a breathtaking nature setting. After booking Roop’s for my wedding reception I read through several reviews all of which said that the venue was wonderful but Jack (the owner) was difficult to deal with. I must admit that I did not have any problems dealing with Jack in fact I found him to be extremely helpful. Jack recommended my florist, baker, and DJ – all of which were fabulous! The venue was beautiful especially on a wonderful fall day where the trees surrounding the wrap around pouch were filled with red and orange leaves. The caterer (which you are obligated to use) was also wonderful. My only negatives about my experience was that they are pretty much a cash only venue – they do not accept credit cards (both venues and caterer) and Jack does not use e-mail so all communication is via phone and mail. Even with these negatives, I would still highly recommend Roop’s for a wedding reception. The service that I received on the day of my wedding and they days leading up to it was outstanding. The venue is beautiful, the grounds make for stunning pictures, and the food was delicious. If I had to do it again I wouldn’t hesitate to choose Roop’s.

My husband and I got married at the Inn at Roop's Mill this past June. The site was amazing and we had many compliments on what a wonderful location we had chosen.

I chose Roop's because of the classic beauty that it portrayed. Luckily, we had fantastic weather on our wedding evening and were able to utilize the outdoor ceremony site, which was gorgeous. The reception was well put-together and laid out, thanks to the help of caterer and wedding coordinator, Wendy Johansson.

The owner of the venue, Jack, was extremely accommodating and helpful. I have read in other reviews that arrival times were not flexible, but this was not the case with our wedding. Our ceremony was to start at 6pm, and I asked that my girls and I have access to the day room by 2pm, as we needed to get ready for pictures to start at 4pm, and he accommodated this request with no hesitation. My only complaint is that Jack seems a bit disorganized. I felt like I was answering the same questions over and over again. Other than that, everything was great!

They're pretty strict about the contract requirements and the time limitations. But if you "follow the rules" this is a GREAT place to work with. Don't look around for a quiet place for a baby during your reception though - there isn't one. If you have a baby coming with a guest, encourage them to find a baby sitter OR make sure they're going to be OK with the noise if your reception falls during nap/bedtime

Our wedding was beautiful!! Everyone loved the location and the menu from Johansson's was delicious! The ballroom was elegant yet simple enough to have my desired colors and flowers encorperated. The windows and chandeliers really added a lot of class and looked great in pictures. It was also great to have a local venue to most of my friends and family to eliminate travel hassels. We also had or hair and make-up done at the Spa at Roops Mill which is also on the property! How easy it was! No running around or worrying about being late. Plus, the staff was awesome!! I highly recommend Roop's Mill!

The Inn at Roop's Mill was a brillant site for our outdoor fall ceremony and reception! Living in Westminster, we were looking for a local site for our wedding in order to really showcase the beauty Westminster has to offer- look no further then Roop's Mill... the outdoor fall reception offered Carroll County's rolling hills in the background with the changing leaves all around (and we were lucky enough to have a late fall wedding with temp in the 70s!). The casual elegance Roop's reception hall has to offer was very impressive as well. Once the room is decked out with table coverings and chair cover (cost extra but recommend, the chairs without covers are cheesy looking) it really looks great!

Being locked-in to Johansson's Catering was a big bonus for us too- again, we wanted to use local vendors to support the Westminster businesses, and Johansson's has always offered top quality and good service.

The only reason I didn't give all 5s is because there could have been more flexibility- the contract only allows for bride/groom to arrive 2 hours before ceremony time- a lot of guests tend to arrive early to weddings, so it wasn't really realistic for us to go there ahead of time for pictures on the grounds, without worrying about being seen by early guests. Also, it actually states in the contract that noone is allowed in the reception site until after the ceremony- and actually makes a note to include for bathroom use- which I thought was rude and unesscessary- I understand things are still getting set-up inside, but if I'm paying to use your hall, and a guest or ME needs to use the bathroom I think it's reasonable to let them in... you don't want any brides popping squats in their dresses! Also, there was a lack of note-taking on Roop's part- after a phone call with me where certain questions were answered, I got a call from my father the next day saying Roop's called him to ask him the same questions, and again from my mother... not a big deal, but annoying enough to make note of.

Overall experience was a BIG 5!!!!

We had a great ceremony and reception at Roops MilI I really like the
venue, absolutely beautiful. I had hoped to have my ceremony outside but the
weather wouldn't cooperate, If you can have your ceremony outside, the
grounds are beautiful, The on site caterer Johansson's was marvelous! Just
a note... the inns owner does have some quirky rules and can be a bit tough
to work with at times., just know that going in and you'll be fine. All in
all I would recommend them and have my reception there again.

The venue is beautiful, but the service is lacking. The person we were in contact with was rarely able to get in touch with and took several days to get back to us. Some of the rules and regulations were a bit much and they didn't work with us in regards to availability to the venue, etc. It's a beautiful place, but needs improvement on customer service.

The Inn at Roops Mill is a gorgeous place to get married. We had a wonderful time. The only down side is the manger/owner Jack. He is tough to work with. We asked to move a table to the other side of the room and basically was a butt head about it for no real reason. However, the cater Wendy from Johannson's a great to work with. She will handle everything for you if you ask... and you should! Our pictures are amazing I don't regret getting married there just had a tough time working with Jack. Hope this helps!

We had both our ceremony and reception at Roops Mill. They also have a day spa right there where me and all my bridesmaids got our hair done before the wedding. Our ceremony was scheduled to be outside, but it had started raining earlier in the day. Wendy Johannson, who caters and coordinates the wedding had told me that it was completely up to me whether or not the ceremony was going to be outside. The day of, the girls and I are getting our hair done in the salon, and Jack, the owner of Roops Mill, comes into the salon and tells one of my bridesmaids that it will not be outside. He couldn't even come and tell me. When I walked out and confronted him, he just yelled at me telling me it was not going to be outside. Okay, if it couldn't be, then be a little nice about it. Luckily, Wendy came to the rescue and figured out a way to have my wedding outside. If it wasn't for her, I never would have had my wedding here. Jack is SO hard to deal with and RIDICULOUS on the rules. I LOVED the venue, and my wedding was perfect, but that is only due to Wendy. She is amazing. Jack, not so much. I would recommend this venue, but PLEASE know that whatever you have to deal with, go through Wendy and she will deal with Jack. She knows how to handle him!!
