About The Elkridge Furnace Inn and Garden House

Escape the typical  and experience The Elkridge Furnace Inn where History Meets Hospitality

Located just minutes from the BWI Airport, the BWI Hotel District and downtown Baltimore.  We are also conveniently located between Baltimore and Washington, DC if you are looking for a centralized meeting location.  Our historic 13 acre complex is on the National Register of Historic Places, Civil War Trails and Underground Railroad.  The Inn gets it's name from the cold blast iron furnace that was on the property when Elkridge Landing was a colonial seaport.  Rich in history and picturesque backdrops, the venue which is on state park property is lined with beautifully mature trees and both natural and landscaped spaces. Our fine dining restaurant is in our circa 1744 Tavern while our 1810 Manor House hosts private celebrations of all sorts as well as events for corporate groups.  The adjacent Garden House venue is available for intimate gatherings as well.   We are a full-service venue providing in-house Catering.  As a Chef-owned venue we take pride in the varied cuisine offered. There is also much room for the personalization of both spaces and menus.

The Manor House
Built in the Federal Style, our circa 1810 Manor House boasts varied spaces for celebrations for all aspects of life.  High ceilings and elegant detailing will grace your festivities. There are unique elegant spaces on four floors along with numerous working fireplaces.  Attached behind the building, our 80'x40' climate controlled tented space  is perfect for larger events.  Depending on need and availability, individual rooms, floors or the entire house can be rented. 

The Garden House
The two-story Garden House, is the newest extension of the Elkridge Furnace Complex. The interior has recently been renovated to express a more contemporary celebratory style while the exterior showcases Victorian colors along with the exposed historic brick. The original two-room house dates to 1830 and was the "Dock Master's House" where people came to pay their taxes from Elkridge Landing which was a Colonial Seaport pre-dating Baltimore. This intimate private venue includes two front sitting rooms in the house with one working fireplace as well as rest rooms (one handicap accessible). The second floor interior staircase leads up to the bridal suite with a private restroom. Our on-site kitchen will assure that your menu is served fresh. Outside there is a hard-scape courtyard with a lovley relaxing water feature and a climate controlled permanent 40'x50' event tent which sits between our organic gardens and green houses. There is an outdoor ceremony point with lighting. Lovely walkways connect everything from the private parking area. The venue can accommodate up to 70 guests.
