Step back in time…

Located in rural St. Mary’s County, MD, Summerseat welcomes you along a quarter mile long, tree-lined driveway leading you away from the 21st century towards a peaceful dwelling, reminding you of times long past.

The lovely gardens and a sparkling goldfish pond with a soothing, melodic waterfall, offer a unique setting for the charm and grace of a memorable wedding.
