The Ivy Hotel, a 19th century mansion located in Baltimore’s historic Mount Vernon neighborhood, is the only Relais & Chateaux hotel in the state of Maryland. The building has been fully restored to its former glory and opened in summer 2015 after an extensive re-imagination. Long before becoming The Ivy, the original mansion was a private home owned by prosperous Baltimore business leaders and socialites who hosted extravagant soirees attended by the city’s elite community.
This holiday season, the mansion is ready to throw sophisticated parties in a new and big way! The Ivy has debuted a brand new, tented Winter Garden specifically for special events and winter weddings. The Winter Garden is located within the property’s walled courtyard and is climate controlled to keep guests comfortable during wintry spells. Adorned with twinkling lights and rustic inspired decor, the charming “outdoor” space exudes romance and is available for private event bookings through February 2020.
A gorgeous destination for intimate weddings in Baltimore, The Ivy can accommodate up to 60 guests and offers unique wedding packages that are inclusive of all the details to take most of the planning responsibilities off the bride and groom. While the hotel is available for weddings year-round, there’s something special about saying “I do” in the mansion’s dazzling, indoor spaces, in addition to the Winter Garden. Think roaring fireplaces, unique details, in-house catering by award-winning Executive Chef Mark Levy, and the ability to make the mansion completely yours (includes 18 bedrooms and suites) with a full buyout.
For those who prefer to escape friends and family all together, The Ivy features an Intimate Elopement Package, complete with an in-house coordinator and wedding officiant who take care of all the prep, so the happy couple only has to show up and exchange vows. They are then spoiled with a multi-course celebratory dinner, a mini wedding cake, ample champagne, and a couple’s massage at their leisure.
