Catoctin Hall at Musket Ridge is the perfect location for your special day. We are delighted to host wedding ceremonies as well as receptions and give you memories to treasure forever.  We are proud to be the only zero food waste facility on the East Coast which helps you lessen the environmental impact of your wedding.

Catoctin Hall was chosen by newlyweds for the third consecutive year as one of the top Washington-area ceremony and reception venues in the 2011 Bride’s Choice Awards from the WeddingWire Network. This award recognizes wedding vendors that demonstrate excellent service and expertise.

We offer unrivaled backdrops for wedding photographs with gorgeous vistas from a ridge across hundreds of acres of lush, green golf course with mountains, lakes, and old-fashioned wooden bridges. Sunsets at Musket Ridge can be spectacular, as well as evening pictures of first dances on the outdoor terrace. Catoctin Hall’s authentic metal roof, beautiful stonework, and classic exterior lines provide a perfect backdrop for your perfect day.

Although we are experts in hosting weddings, no two are alike. With our facilities, staff, and creativity, your reception will truly be unique.

Our wedding space is designed to become your wedding space, and Catoctin Hall is not your cookie-cutter event venue. It combines a state-of-the-art banquet facility with the warmth and detailed finishes rarely seen today. The vaulted ceiling, natural light, and panoramic views of the acclaimed golf course and mountains make Catoctin Hall a distinctive setting for wedding receptions.

Because Catoctin Hall is our sole ballroom at Musket Ridge, you don’t have to worry about other events running simultaneously – you and your guests will have our event staff’s undivided attention. Catoctin Hall can accommodate up to 250 guests, and our terraces and spacious grounds can be used for additional capacity or to provide something unique for your reception.

Planning a wedding reception involves skilled coordination and our staff pays high attention to detail. We aim to accommodate even the most discerning tastes while facilitating your needs whenever possible. Superior service is our standard, and the following items are automatically included in all Musket Ridge wedding receptions so you have less to worry about:

  • A four hour reception in our elegantly appointed Catoctin Hall
