About us

Voted “Inn with the Best Wedding Arrangements in the Nation” by Arrington’s B& B Journal, the scene is straight out of an old screenplay. Imagine riding up in a horse-drawn carriage to The Black Horse Inn, and it’s elegant, mansion-style reception facility, The Gilded Fox with seating for 200 guests. The Inn offers eight rooms with private baths, overlooking breath-taking panoramic views of thoroughbreds grazing in pastures. Perfect for bridal photography is a grand wedding gazebo, magnificent porticos, stone fireplaces, stately flagstone terraces and a picturesque pond and bridge. The Inn takes pride in giving brides a tasteful, elegant atmosphere in which to hold a reception lasting the whole weekend, rather than just a few hours.

What our customers are saying
Every step you take is a perfect setting for fabulous pictures. The horses even posed for us in a few! Our guests enjoyed cocktails on the Garden Terrace during our photo shoot and adults and children alike delighted in standing on the bridge at the pond, watching the fish, the waterfall and the horses. The reception in the grand ballroom was straight out of the Great Gatsby era. We danced the night away and never had a worry. The Inn took care of every detail. I didn't have to worry about a thing! Their attention to detail was priceless.

For a wedding to remember - it is without hesitation that I recommend the Black Horse Inn. From wedding planning to excellent lodging accommodations - the Black Horse Inn delivered. The attention to detail, managing the event and the relaxing atmosphere provided by the staff is commendable. The coordination and management of the wedding team consisting of 1st rate vendors (all from Hunt Country Celebrations) allowed for a flawless execution of the wedding ceremony and reception. I am confident in saying that I was the calmest bride in history and it is all due to the staff at the Black Horse, taking the worry out of wedding plan.
