Woodend offers a country setting in Chevy Chase, Maryland, that is relaxed yet elegant. With its classic Greek portico, sweeping lawns, and spacious, high-ceilinged rooms, Woodend provides a beautiful setting for weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversary and retirement parties, memorials and life celebrations, and bar and bat mitzvah celebrations.

The tented terrace accommodates up to 150 seated guests. Outdoors, a wedding grove offers an enchanting backdrop for romantic ceremonies while the Great Hall with its staircase and balcony provides a warm and gracious alternative.
