Billingsley House is a brick Tidewater Colonial plantation house that sits on 430 acres overlooking the confluence of the Patuxent River and the Western Branch. Less than an hour from Washington, D.C. and only 20 minutes from the Chesapeake Bay, the house and land were named for Major John Billingsley, the original 1662 land grant owner. Built around 1740, Billingsley has been substantially altered and modernized both in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, yet it is still one of the oldest structures remaining in the County and a unique example of a plantation house. Your lovely outdoor ceremony takes place on the green lawn overlooking the river, and you’ll say your vows surrounded by sweeping views of the water. After the “I dos”, your guests will enjoy cocktails and a scrumptious meal under a fantastic tent on the lawn. The house offers a stunning balcony, perfect for wedding photography. The picturesque views of the river and surrounding wooded areas provide a secluded atmosphere for your reception. Enjoy dinner and dancing under the stars as all your friends and family witness your joyous day.
