With over twelve acres of green land centered with a pergola, growing trees and passionate life on state park property, it boasts a world of adventure to be had. With the wedding day enabling unique and ceremonious captures while the entire wedding party enjoy the serene atmosphere sipping on a glass of champagne in one of the two reception venues. 

History

After 210 years of life in Maryland, The Elkridge Furnace Inn carries the stunning historic value from its origins as a worker’s dwelling after iron ore was found in the 1700’s flowing through the nearby Patapsco River.

Today, the Inn is owned by the in-house chefs while remaining the same elegant and stylish complex. With the original Federal-era windows to frame each room and a classic porch entrance to greet each new guest, the venue provides tasteful quality and beauty as a location to encase memories and venture on new beginnings.

The Elkridge Furnace Inn is home to a reception venue of unending character. From the fields of green carrying out into the horizon and the stunning 17th century architecture that stands strong to this day. 

However, there are some notable features you could look to for inspiration for your wedding day photo album.

For example: being close to the Patapsco River, it features natural and calm running water nearby. The river, which can be seen through the second and third floor windows can be graciously heard when the nuptials are taking place on the custom-built garden pergola. All while saying yes under the breeze of the sycamore giants.
