The staff were very responsive to email and phone calls and made sure our day went off with out any problems. You cant go wrong with going with this wedding venue!

I wish I could give this place 10 stars. We just had our wedding there a couple of weeks ago and I cannot say enough good things about every single part of our experience there. First off, it is GORGEOUS. I could not have dreamed up a more perfect place. It has so much character and charm, you could get away with absolutely no decorations (we actually did add a few things, but we didn't need to). It was also significantly cheaper than everywhere else we looked, but what we received is most certainly of a higher quality than some of the more expensive venues that we originally looked at. Debbie and her staff were incredibly prompt in returning every email/call throughout the 13 month planning process and I felt as though they actually cared about my wedding and making it exactly what I wanted it to be in every interaction that I had with them. On the actual day of our wedding, everything was absolutely PERFECT. They took every single expectation I had and far surpassed it. The lighting in the ballroom with the draped ceiling (which is FREE- you don't have to pay extra like a lot of other places) was breathtaking. The wait staff was outstanding. We are still getting compliments from guests about how delicious the food was (Chicken Chesapeake). The bridal attendant was making sure my husband and I had everything we needed all night long. The unique bar had all of our guests impressed and talking about how awesome it was to see Art Donovan's old sports memorabilia. Every time I think back on that night, I just get a huge smile on my face because it was so much more than I could have ever imagined. All of guests had an amazing time and If you are considering this venue for your wedding, I could not recommend it more highly. You won't be disappointed!

We recently used Mansion at Valley Country Club for our winter wedding. My husband and I could not say enough about how happy we were with our choice. We chose the Chicken Chesapeake as our dinner choice and added an extra hour on the end of the evening so we could have one long party! Our guests could not say enough about how great the food was, and of course about how amazing the location was. We highly recommend this location!

My daughter's wedding was held 10/11/14 and want to say it was fabulous! Debbie Donovan and her staff at the Mansion bent over backwards to ensure we and our guests were taken care of! Everything from the ambiance of an evening wedding on the comfy porch to the food, service and warmth of this place was just wonderful! We cannot thank them enough for a wonderful evening had by all! Thank you!

Words can't even begin to express how amazing this venue is! This a true hidden gem with such great Baltimore history! Debbie was so kind and genuine. She ben met with us two days after her father Art Donovan had pass away! However, I have to give Abby a heartfelt thank you for all she did! She was wonderful throughout this whole process! She made us feel like the most important couple/wedding even though she had so many other weddings! She calmed my nerves as the wedding came closer and assured us everything would be fine and it truly was! The location is gorgeous and the value for what you get is fantastic! They don't nickel and dime you like so many other venues. Their staff is wonderful and make everyone feel welcome. I have so many amazing memories and pictures from our wedding day that my only wish is I could have another event here! I feel beyond blessed to have found them and will never forget this experience....and I have to say much of this is due to the people who work at the mansion! Thank you so much! I hope others will choose this venue to support this Baltimore treasure!

We had our wedding and reception at the mansion. Debbie, Abby and their staff could not be more helpful and professional. Our guests said the staff was very polite all night long. They offered to get drinks and kept our plates of food warm until we had a chance to sit down and eat. We had the filet and crab cake option. Many of one guests told us the food was cooked to perfection Having a sports bar just made the night more special.
We would highly recommend this beautiful, historic mansion and their staff

Our wedding experience with the staff at the Mansion was perfect. My main point of contact throughout the whole wedding process was Abby, and she was always more than happy to answer all of my (many) questions and responded very quickly to each. The mansion itself is beautiful, and there was adequate space for our guests during both our ceremony, which we held inside, and the reception. We had 150 guests, and they raved about the food (we had chicken chesapeake and pork tenderloin) and were also very happy with the bar selection. All of our guests were pleased with the service and food and also commented on how beautiful the venue was. We were disappointed that due to the weather we were not able to have the ceremony outside, as the venue offers a beautiful porch to get married on, but our indoor ceremony was very romantic with soft lighting and candles everywhere and took place in the ballroom. So even the weather was not a setback! During the reception Ingrid and James were very helpful and made sure each part of the day went by smoothly. Both my husband and I were catered to and the staff always made sure we had a drink in hand.

One thing that I did notice was that during the planning process the venue has strict rules regarding what can and can't be used during the reception and ceremony (no glitter or photo booth, etc.), but we were able to work around that. I would definitely recommend using this venue to future brides and grooms because you will receive both the excellent customer service and a classy vintage romantic setting. We had a wonderful experience and look forward to going to future weddings at the Mansion!

The Valley Country Club was perfect for our winter wedding! Since it was December, they had all the fireplaces going and we had multiple candles lit throughout the mansion. It set the perfect cozy ambience that we were hoping for! Initially, I was worried about having to take pictures outside once it was dark (since it was wintertime and sunset was early), but the night time shots turned out amazing!

Also, in doing research on wedding venues, I found this one to be the best value for the price. Many other venues charge you a facility fee to rent the facility. Then you pay an additional price per person for food. However, since the Valley Country Club has on site catering, there is no added facility fee - it is built in to the per person price!! Additionally, the per person price was so much lower than many other venues that we looked out! You really cannot beat the quality for the price that you pay. :) Obviously, it is still a bit pricey, but as weddings go, it was on the lower end of the range, in my opinion.
