Black Horse Inn




At Black Horse Inn, your future together begins framed by the elegance of the past. The pre-Civil War grand mansion's one-of-a-kind architecture, exquisite interiors, and lush gardens provide the backdrop for your special day. Situated in northern Virginia’s hunt country and originally built in the 1850's, this majestic property will inspire an unforgettable wedding celebration. Imagine descending a majestic staircase, gown trailing softly behind as your spouse-to-be waits in an ornate hall. You’ll recite your vows on a picturesque balcony overlooking a formal garden. Or choose a festive outdoor celebration, saying “I do” beneath a quaint gazebo surrounded by your loved ones. The celebration continues as you dance the night away in an exquisite ballroom, complete with rich wooden floors, rafters high above, expansive windows and a top-notch view of the rolling hills of the estate. The combined history and natural beauty of Black Horse Inn provides an exceptional experience!
