Get to Know the Jewel of the Chesapeake – Kingsbay Mansion!




Kingsbay Mansion


– Tell Us a Little About Your Background –

Originally called “The Oaks”, Kingsbay Mansion was purchased by The Carlin Company in 2000 as an executive retreat for members of the meetings and entertainment industry. David King is Executive Director of the premier production company, which boasts many clients like Oprah Winfrey, US Presidents and numerous stars. All of these folks appreciate the quiet and solitude that the Georgian waterfront wedding venue offers. Hundreds of events were planned and produced on property.

In 2015, the decision was made to rebrand the property as Kingsbay Mansion and open to the public as an executive bed and breakfast and wedding destination. Under the skillful direction of Jerry Philpott, Director of Sales and Marketing, Kingsbay Mansion opened with roaring success to an industry that was desperate for exciting, new accommodations and celebrity-level events, especially weddings. The magic of Kingsbay is the sheer grandeur of mansion itself and its 2000 feet of manicured waterfront- a the splendid backdrop for your amazing day!

Situated on the peninsula of Coulbourn Creek at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay just north of Crisfield Maryland, this elegant Georgian waterfront estate is one of the newest and most popular wedding venues in the middle Atlantic region.

–  Can You Give Us an Example of a Problem You Solved for a Client? – 

One thing we have learned from years in show business, you don’t really know the performer until they hit the stage. Such was our experience when one of our brides worried that we were not telling the photographer what to do. Most people know that a top photographer knows exactly what to do, has familiarity with the venue and has his/her wedding plan well before the wedding day. In this instance, Kingsbay producers jumped in, directing the photographer to all the best locations and assisting in staging what turned out to be some of the best photographs ever taken on property!


–  Do You Have Testimonials from Couples? – 

Our couples say the nicest things….

“Kingsbay Mansion is one of the most amazing wedding venues on Delmarva. Having looked at several venues, we knew right away that we wanted to get married at the Mansion as soon as we stepped foot on the property. Aside from the sheer beauty of the property, the added bonus of having all of your family and friends in once place for the weekend really sent our experience over the top. The owners, Jerry and David, were extremely helpful in planning every aspect of the wedding. They assisted in finding all our vendors and helped us organize our day-of timeline. I cannot say enough about how professional the whole process was and if we had to do it all over again we wouldn’t change a thing.”

“Kingsbay Mansion in Marion Station, Maryland is an absolutely gorgeous place to have your wedding! The Mansion itself is the perfect size to host the Bride and Groom’s immediate family or the wedding party. Having two separate wings of the house was so convenient for getting the bridal party ready, and the master suite provided a luxurious backdrop for our “getting ready” photos. The outdoor backyard is perfect for an outdoor ceremony and venue, and the sunset views over the bay are so strikingly gorgeous. Not only are there many prime photo opportunities on the grounds, but the interior of the Mansion itself has tons of amazing rooms and nooks for photos. The owners, David and Jerry, are very communicative and easy to work with; they made the process very easy and our special day was perfect!”

“From the first time we visited Kingsbay Mansion, we knew this unique venue was the perfect setting for our Eastern Shore wedding. The ornate home and beautiful gardens were a special place to have our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. We loved being able to offer our wedding party and friends a place to stay after the festivities. Our wedding weekend was so special and the entire Kingsbay Mansion staff were so wonderful with making our wedding memorable. Zack and I cannot thank you all enough, your home will forever be a special place for us.”
