WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I can’t even begin to tell people how spectacular it was to have our wedding at this establishment. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, was so unbelievably kind, helpful, organized, detailed, loving, and made the day so special. It’s so cliche to say, but it truly was a very special day. This was the only venue we looked at and for good reason. I can’t thank the entire staff and Sarah, Donna, and Dan, enough for all the love and attention they gave to our wedding day.

A LIFELONG LABOR OF LOVE
31 years ago we started the Elkridge Furnace Inn project with the restoration of this historic complex. Dan used his training in French cuisine and our menu had subtitles. Over the years, our gardens have expanded along with what we produce right here. The Garden House was added from the house we had lived in for 12 years for intimate celebrations. When it became more important where our food came from than a French etiquette, our Farm to Table experience became more evident. The layers of living history along with the natural beauty being part of the Patapsco Valley State Park are even more front and center with the redecorating we have done over the last year and a half with carefully chosen artwork including a new landscape created for us by Joann Weiss of the river behind us. Our new front sign now speaks of this identity in bold and clear ways. Gone is the "Fine Dining" label. We don't want to be confined by a box but to create outside of the box in the freshest way possible. Slightly more casual, but always the finest quality. New ideas, new opportunities! Like a vintage wine mellowing with age, we keep getting better. If it's been a while since you've experienced our gracious hospitality, there is much to see and taste that is new.
