Holiday events in Silver Spring, MD & beyond: Belmont Manor Open House

By
Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

The Belmont Manor, also known as the Gem of Elkridge, dates back to 1738 and is owned by the Howard County Government that purchased the manor house and its 68 acres in 2012 to ensure the stewardship of this magnificient building and grounds. 

Belmont Manor is a popular venue for weddings and retreats and only open to the public during special events. One such event is the Holiday Open House during which visitors can explore Belmont on a self-guided tour, enjoy refreshments and period music while admiring the festively decorated rooms. 

The first Holiday Open House was held last weekend but there is one more this season scheduled for December 16th, 2018 from 3 - 6 pm. This is a free event, hosted by the Howard County Conservancy. Visitors can also join historian Fred Dorsey for an on-site tour, visit the gift shop, and say hello to Belle, the Eastern Screech Owl who lives on the grounds of the historic Belmont Manor Estate.

Open house events for Christmas are so much fun, I remember that my school used to put one on every year, it was so much fun.

I wish it was my listing and open house Tanya! But Belmont Manor is actually a county owned historic estate that has been beautifully decorated for the holidays. The public is invited to take a step back in time and tour the Belmont Manor on December 16th. I stopped by last weeknd, it's lovely! 

Super fun Brian England! Belmont Manor is a popular wedding venue and they have a bridal suite there and one for the groom, too. My girls were ooohing and aaaahing over the bridal suite and now want to get married there (not that this will happen anytime soon!).
