About Us

Bretton Woods is a country club with a banquet hall wedding venue for couples in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. At this private venue, couples will find natural beauty in the pristine landscaping and pond. Couples can find this country club in Germantown, Maryland, approximately 35 minutes upstream of the Lincoln Memorial on the Potomac River.

Facilities and Capacity

This 285-acre venue encourages couples to celebrate their big day with up to 150 wedding guests. The outdoor ceremony location overlooking the pond is romantic and includes lush trees in the background. A wedding arbor can be added and decorated with flowing fabric or fragrant flowers for a pop of color among the greens of the lawn and blues of the sky reflected in the pond waters. Sparkling sunlight illuminates couples beginning their life together before they join guests for a reception. The Southard Room seats up to 60 for a plated dinner but accommodates more for a standing cocktail hour before the reception, should couples be holding a larger affair. The room connects to an outdoor patio with a built-in stone wall fireplace. This relaxing location offers views of the golf course and the Potomac River. The Potomac Ballroom can seat up to 150 guests for a sit-down dinner and features a dance floor, bar, and the additional space of an attached deck. This deck can be used for a cocktail reception or as a place for guests to get a breath of fresh air during the party. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow guests to appreciate the scenery outdoors while celebrating the couple’s love inside.

  • Having spent many happy golf outings at Bretton Woods, it seemed reasonable to schedule my 80th Birthday Party there. I could not have made a better decision. Phill helped us plan a marvelous event. The room was decorated in a fantastic way, the food was delicious and the staff {Danny for sure} were great. I will certainly recommend your facility to anyone who is looking for a beautiful setting for a special occassion. Many thanks go to you and your wonderful staff for making my 80th very memorable.
