Driving along U.S. Route 15 near Thurmont, your eye is drawn to a beautiful property up on a hill, with lovely grounds and a stunning manor house. This is Springfield Manor Winery and Distillery, one of Frederick County’s newest wedding venues, opening officially in Spring 2014. Springfield Manor is the sister site to Stone Manor Country Club in Middletown, and both are known together as The Manors of Frederick.
Springfield Manor is a beautifully renovated estate, with all of the charm of a Southern mansion and all of the amenities and sophistication of a modern wedding venue. Contributor Jenna Shriver took a tour of Springfield Manor last summer, to give us an inside look at all this wonderful venue has to offer.
Springfield Manor allows for two different reception options. The renovated bank barn can accommodate up to 150 guests. Rustic beams and beautiful farm tables create a lovely setting. Glass panel garage doors expand the view, and open to allow the event to flow directly on to the adjoining patio. The elegantly constructed ballroom is perfect for events of up to 299 guests. A serpentine sun porch and terrace allow for a unique cocktail hour setting.
Much of the interior of the manor home is available to the wedding party for getting ready, including a groom’s suite and areas outside designated for a whiskey and cigar celebration.
The beautiful Catoctin Mountains provide a stunning view for ceremonies performed at the permanent pergola.
With amazing grounds and beautiful interiors, Springfield Manor is a wonderful venue for couples looking for a stylish, yet comfortable place to host their wedding ceremony and reception.
