Lower Notley Hall Farm

Lower Notley Hall Farm is a waterfront venue on the Wicomico River. Whether the bride chooses to float down our beautiful grand staircase or walk barefoot through the grass overlooking the beautiful Wicomico River, Lower Notley Hall could be the venue for your unforgettable wedding.

Step back in time to a place where the past meets the present and your future begins. Imagine string quartets, or fiddles firing up bluegrass on the covered porch - sunsets more intoxicating than champagne or fine wine.

Lower Notley Hall Farm is located approximately 15 miles west of the St. Mary's County Seat of Leonardtown, and about 50 miles south of Washington DC. Shopping, medical and entertainment services can be found in Leonardtown. A vibrant Amish-Mennonite community is just minutes away, offering local fresh produce and craftsman services and products.

Being located along the banks of the glorious Wicomico River in Chaptico, you may enjoy cool river breezes and unimaginable sunsets while being serenaded by gulls and osprey. An eagle sighting is not uncommon.

It is the boyhoodhome of Robert E.T. Pogue, author of Yesterday in Old St. Mary's County, Old Maryland Landmarks, and Beautiful Journeys.
