Meeting planners looking for a Maryland conference center that is safe, secluded, and incredibly private should look no further than the Aspen Wye River Conference Center in Queenstown, Maryland, just 60 miles from Washington, DC. With a renovation recently completed, this hotel offers some of the finest East Coast private meeting facilities in the region.
Overlooking the sparkling Wye River on over 1,100 acres of dense woodlands and rolling pastures, this Maryland conference center is the ultimate location to get down to business and do serious planning, team building, and intensive focused work. The property inspires creativity, communication, and fosters great thinking and breakthrough ideas.
This East Coast off-site meetings destination has hosted many diverse groups, from local and regional businesses to wedding groups and social events. The elegant atmosphere and seclusion has made it a popular choice for dignitaries, and even hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yasser Arafat, President Bill Clinton and US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.
Unlike most other Maryland conference centers, the Aspen Wye River Conference Center is a private retreat available for use only by groups, conferences or special events. It is owned by the world-renowned Aspen Institute, managed by Marriott Hotels & Resorts and is IACC certified. The facility has two mansions available: the Houghton House, a stately Georgian mansion and the River House, a contemporary estate right on the Wye River. A group utilizing one of the houses has it all to themselves with no other guests.
The newly renovated River House is decorated in a modern style while the Houghton House features a more traditional setting. Each of the buildings features meeting space, dining areas, overnight accommodations for meeting attendees, and recreational areas. Additionally, the Aspen Wye River Conference Center offers team building experiences and challenging ropes courses on property as well as a variety of leisure activities including swimming, volleyball, golf, tennis, and sailing.
