About

Worsell Manor has an incredible history and a new modern life thanks to the loving restoration by its current owners. The estate was granted in 1683 and was a favored stopping ground for George Washington who enjoyed the parties thrown at this elegant and intimate property still nestled in natural and preserved woodlands. Enjoy a piece of history with privacy and romance! 

In its new life, Worsell Manor has been lovingly designed as a unique wedding venue for brides who seek a rustic setting and the elegance of a heritage manor house. Now, this oasis of natural charm offers its bounty for your wedding design: a rustic barn, woodside gardens and heritage architecture. 

Worsell Manor is within 1.5 hours driving distance to major mid-Atlantic cities.

My husband and I got married here last month. Scott is great to work with and very laid back. Scott allowed us to visit the venue several times prior to the wedding and provided ample access in order to decorate and get everything ready. The venue comes with tables and chairs for the reception and benches for ceremony seating. They set up the tables and chairs according to the seating plan you create with the caterer. The venue is absolutely beautiful. We choose this venue because the scenery is gorgeous and has several outdoor ceremony locations, but in the event of rain, we planned to move the ceremony into the smaller barn. Fortunately the weather was perfect and we were married outside, but this was one barn venue that if it rained, I didn't feel like I was compromising my ceremony space. Go visit, you will fall in love.

** Note** If you book here and need hotel space, get your wedding block early. We stayed at the Hampton Inn in Middletown. There are not many hotels in the area. By contacting the Hampton several months in advance, I was able to secure space nearby and got a lower rate for the rooms.
