Antrim 1844 Country Inn
Taneytown, Maryland

Web Site:


Nestled at the foot of the rolling Catoctin Mountains in Central Maryland, this unique country house hotel is acclaimed for its cuisine and luxurious accommodations.

Built in 1844, Antrim was once a thriving plantation and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Owners Dorothy and Richard Mollett have masterfully restored the mansion and the estate buildings on this 24-acre site. Visitors can enjoy first-hand the adaptive re-use of this exceptional restoration.

Located just 15 minutes from Historic Gettysburg, Antrim 1844 Country House Hotel offers a spectacular setting for romantic getaways, fine dining, elegant weddings, family reunions or corporate meetings and events.


Nine guestrooms have been restored within the mansion. Each boasts antiques, fireplaces, canopy feather beds and marble baths, or double Jacuzzis.

Twelve additional rooms and suites are located in the unique outbuildings. Each of these special guest rooms has its own fireplace and is furnished with a queen size or king size bed. Located beside the formal gardens, The Ice House has the atmosphere of an English cottage. The Cottage offers a private stay in the original plantation office. The Barn has two rooms, each with its own private deck overlooking woods and a brook. The Carriage House has most recently been restored into six magnificent suites with all of the amenities imaginable. The Smith House hosts two more suites, each luxuriously outfitted for the perfect stay.


In Country House style, your reservation begins with hors d’oeuvres served in the Drawing Rooms or in the formal gardens in warmer months. Shortly thereafter, you are seated at your table in the Smokehouse Restaurant where you will enjoy a leisurely six-course fine dining experience prepared by Executive Chef Michael Gettier.

Chef Gettier plans the dinner menu on a daily basis and looks for the freshest ingredients for each season.
