Walker’s Overlook, a venue situated in Walkersville, Maryland, gives couples and their guests a taste of the simple life through its peaceful farm setting. Even though you will feel as if you are nestled away in this historic farm, you will be conveniently located near both Washington, D.C. and the city of Baltimore. The farm house, which was built in 1757, has been serving couples on their wedding day for 30 years. This experience, combined with the pines, rolling hills, and stone and brick exterior makes this the perfect spot for couples seeking a secluded and rustic ceremony site.

Gorgeous features abound on the property from the natural beauty outdoors to the French doors located indoors. Couples can choose from the venue’s available indoor, covered indoor, and uncovered outdoor wedding and reception sites. Even though this venue may be historic, the facility was renovated with a modern couple’s needs in mind. Couples can now enjoy modern amenities, fixtures, and features when they come and exchange their vows here. Situated just outside the venue are plenty of rolling hills and countryside views. Couples can choose the back lawn if they desire a more outdoorsy setting surrounded by the scenic views. The banquet space can also be used on your wedding day. Each wedding party will also receive a private space in which to prepare and relax in. The bridal party room includes a balcony while the groom and groomsmen have access to a man cave inspired space. Services Offered Throughout the entire wedding planning process, you will be helped by a wedding coordinator. Your wedding coordinator can help you plan and carry out your bridal shower, engagement party, ceremony, and reception.

BOOK THIS VENUE!!! Missi, the wedding coordinator I worked with, was absolutely AMAZING. She was so responsive throughout the entire year right up until the wedding day, and was always so sweet and felt like family. I love how this venue includes a day-of coordinator in the cost...what a great idea!! On my wedding day, everything went so unbelievably smoothly. Whenever anything went wrong, Missi would come up to the bridal suite and calmly ask me what I would like her to do about it :) All of our guests could not stop raving about the beauty of the venue (we had a July wedding)...during the reception my husband and I took sunset pictures by one of the fences while our guests roamed the grass field and played on the swing hanging from one of the huge trees. Highly, highly, highly recommend this venue!!!

I actually used the venue for my baby shower, however I highly recommend choosing Walker's Overlook for any occasion desired. The grounds are absolutely pristine and grogeous. The interior is just as wonderful and very well maintained and clean. The entire venue has such an warm and intimate vibe, you can't go wrong with choosing this location. Not to mention, Mark and David were absolutely wonderful to work with. Both were so very kind and accommodating, and quick to answer any questions you may have. Top notch service!

This venue is absolutely gorgeous! Holly was our coordinator and was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely organized and helped makes me feel extremely calm and well prepared for the big day. There were unfortunate circumstances where the coordinator at Dulaney's had a family emergency, so unfortunately on our wedding day poor Holly was running back and forth between our wedding and the wedding at Dulaney's. No ones fault, but after the fact I think the situation should have been handled differently where Holly stayed with us for the day and someone else handled the other wedding. With that said, Holly handled this extremely well and was still available to make sure everything ran smoothly. We were so extremely lucky to have Holly as our coordinator and it's such an amazing perk that this venue offers.

This venue is absolutely amazing! They will give you 12 hours for the price. You do have to book all vendors (i.e. catering, cake, etc) but the venue is stunning and the time they give you is more bang for your buck! The owner, Mark, is very professional and nice! All of the employees there are very down to earth and just all around good people. The venue can accommodate up to 300 people so if you're having a lot of people it's a good place.

We fell in love with Walker's Overlook on our first visit! The surrounding area was absolutely beautiful and the overall feel to the place was just so relaxed and romantic at the same time! Mark and Juanita (owners) were very responsive whenever we had a question, and they assign you a wedding planner as part of their price! Let me tell you, that was a lifesaver! Holly and Missy (our wedding planners) were simply amazing! They handled everything and made sure that our wedding went as smooth as could be and it truly was the most wonderful day of our lives!

We had the best experiences by choosing Walker’s Overlook as our wedding venue. The venue is breathtaking, and my husband was instantly sold on it because of the awesome man cave they have for the groom and his groomsmen to get ready. Everything about this venue exceeded our expections, mainly due to the fact that we had the absolute best day of planner, Holly McKendrick. The venue assigns a day of planner, but Holly acted more like an actually wedding planner. She went above and beyond by helping us plan our wedding, and made sure to stay in contact with us through the whole planning process. She made planning our wedding that much more easier by doing far more duties than what a “day of” planner would do. The day of our wedding, Holly did everything to make sure all items where taken care of so that the bride and groom could simply enjoy their day without worrying about everything. Right after our ceremony it started to storm and Holly was running around making sure the transition of originally planning the cocktail hour that was suppose to be outside quickly had to change and be inside. She was running around back and forth in the storm and never complained making sure everything was ok. The whole staff at Walker’s Overlook is fantastic, but we got lucky to have had Holly as our planner. I cannot express how much I highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous and romantic wedding.

It's one day after my daughters wedding at Walkers Overlook and I can't say enough good things about this beautiful venue, the professionalism of Mark Lynch and wonderful knowledgeable staff. We met with Mark last October to discuss having my daughters wedding at this charming historical home and gorgeous well kept grounds. Mark was generous with his time and patiently answered all our questions. I had been at Walkers Overlook a year or so before for a large formal birthday for my aunt. So I was sold already on having the wedding with Mark. My daughter and her then fiancé quickly agreed. Although I think the "man cave" was a big selling point for one member of our group. It was pretty neat with all the pin ball machines and just a fun setting for the guys. The brides area is elegant, private and relaxing with a view for the bride to overlook the area of the grounds and wedding area. The historical part of the home with a separate parlors to meet in small groups of family or friends. There is a modern huge functional kitchen. I had brought snacks pre-wedding and kept things in the huge refrigerator. We were allowed to arrive at noon to do last minutes personal touches and to relax before the 5:30 wedding. We had 163 guests and there was more than enough areas to roam around inside and out. The cocktail hour was on the patio and that is where appetizers were passed by our caterers waiters. I was free to use whoever I chose for the caterers, music, flowers etc. Mark gave us a list of the the different vendors he recommends. But he told us we did not have to choose from his list. I did choose his recommended Caterer and D,J and was very happy. Not to be forgotten is the wedding planner. Each bride is assigned a experienced planner. Lori was ours and she was invaluable. She was with us to consult with us on a time table before the wedding, during the rehersal on-site and the day of the wedding day. Lori was invaluable. She made our day stress free.

This venue is beyond gorgeous. The grounds are entirely breathtaking. The tent on the premises easily accommodated our approximately 250 guests with room for a nice sized dance floor as well. Although we did not expect rain on our wedding day and had to make some very last minute big decisions and changes with regard to our cocktail hour and ceremony, our wedding coordinator, Missi, remained calm and helped make everything run smoothly! Our day was just as special and beautiful despite the rainy weather. We loved having the venue to ourselves for the day and the bridal suite could not have been more clutch, fitting all 14+ females in the wedding party comfortably. Missi made sure all of our wedding signs, posters, and favors were placed in conspicuous places so our guests could easily find them! She was a pleasure to work with and always acted with utmost professionalism! We highly recommend Walker's Overlook and Missi as well.

My husband I were married at Walkers Overlook in May of 2018, and we could not have been happier with our experience. To begin with we decided to switch venues from Dulany's overlook to walker's overlook last year, as we realized our wedding size was going to bigger then expected. The owners were extremely flexible and without any issue they changed our venues. We were assigned Holly as our coordinator and she really knew what she was doing, and was fantastic to work with. She was extremely friendly, helpful and ran the day without any issues. We realllllyy wanted to get married outside by the tree, however, it was raining all morning. The owners and Holly were so flexible up until 5 mins before the ceremony and they saw a 20 min window without rain- and the team made a quick game time decision, cleaned off all the chairs, moved our arch... and we were able to get married under that beautiful tree! Its a beautiful venue, with very flexible and reasonable owners. Being able to get ready at the bridal suite with 14 + people all morning made our lives so much easier! We couldn't be happier with our day and our decision to get married at Walkers Overlook!

Walker's Overlook was amazing from the day I took the tour with my mom and my mother-in-law to our wedding day. I absolutely love the fact that it is a family-owned property. It shows in the way they treat their customers and their families. The venue is absolutely beautiful and it really helps to keep the stress level down the day of by having access to the property from the morning on. The house is beautiful and provides a great back drop for getting-ready pictures. Missi was our coordinator assigned by the venue and I could not have asked for a more amazing coordinator....SHE WAS PHENOMENAL. Everything I need (which was a lot to say the least) Missi helped me with in a timely manner and bent over backwards to make everything I wanted happen. I cannot say enough positive things about her. More than anything, when I chose a wedding venue I wanted it to be a place where both Craig and I, our families, and our friends could ENJOY our wedding day. The Walker's Overlook staff made that possible. I am forever thankful for them and all they did to make our day special. If you are looking for a perfect wedding venue, you have found it. You will not regret your decision to use Walker's Overlook as the venue to celebrate your big day! :)

Your review made my day, we want everyone to feel the way you do. Thank you very much for all your kind words, Mark

I am a wedding professional and have had the pleasure of hosting a special event at my favorite local wedding venue- Walker's Overlook. I have been to many venues in the area and Walker's is at the top of my list not only because it gets more beautiful every year, but because Mark, Dave and all of their staff make it even better. They are so friendly, down to earth and over the top accommodating that they make everyone feel like family. Although Walker's Overlook is so easy to get to, it is far enough off the road and nestled in the farm fields that you feel like you are in your own peaceful little world. This is the perfect place for a wedding or any event especially for families.

This is the PERFECT wedding venue! We got married on June 30th and the ceremony under the tree was gorgeous. The venue held our 175 guests comfortably and still allowed for a huge dance floor. Getting ready in the huge, air conditioned bridal suite was a breeze. The vendors in the area are great and Holly, our coordinator was able to make sure we thought of every last detail. They allowed us to drop some stuff off a little early as there was not a wedding the night before and they helped us set it up the next day. Everyone in attendance loveddddd the venue and a month later we are still getting compliments. It was definitely worth the money seeing as how you get full use of the venue all day, an experienced coordinator, tent, tables, chairs, and a house. Other vendors in the area are amazing as well and there are a bunch to choose from. I wouldn't change a thing about this place!
