Nestled at the foot of the breathtaking Catoctin Mountains in Central Maryland, this beautiful 24-acre estate is renowned for its superb cuisine and upscale accommodations. Owners Dorothy (Dort) and Richard Mollett have masterfully restored the property to reflect its original splendor of 1844. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, visitors can experience the rich history with touches of modern elegance. Originally opening as a four-room bed and breakfast in 1988, Antrim 1844 has grown to 40 guestrooms and suites by renovating original outbuildings into unique spaces in which guests can retire to. The Carriage House, Barn, Ice House and Cottage are a few of these structures that withstood the test of time. Additionally, Dort and Richard were honored to receive the Maryland Historical Trust “Preservation Project Award” for their work in restoring the historic property.
