I can't imagine getting married anywhere else than Musket Ridge. From the first moment we stepped onto the back patio and looked at the beautiful white pergola, stone steps and beautiful backdrop, we were hooked. Everyone at the venue was amazing the entire way through the planning process. Chelsea Sherman is phenomenal. Sweet, kind, helpful and patient! She helps a bride's nerves tremendously. Janice, the banquet captain, is incredible. The outside and inside spaces are beautiful and elegant. The food is delicious. People said it was the most beautiful venue and scenery they had ever seen for a wedding and I agree. Gorgeous space, friendly and helpful staff and delicious food. It was perfect!

Musket Ridge Golf Club is a picturesque venue. Our guests commented on the beautiful scenery. Bonnie Swanson, the events sales manager, was very polite and responsive. She outlined the various packages that were available and informed us of military discounts based on my spouse's eligibility. Susie Chalk was our event coordinator and a pleasure to work alongside. She was very flexible and open to our ideas. Also, she was very responsive, transparent and did a phenomenal job. The ceremony and reception setting was beautiful. Susie ensured that I remained stress-free as possible and took care of any hiccups. My spouse and I are very happy with the service provided by the staff throughout the wedding process. I wished had more pictures on my personal phone to truly show what a beautiful evening it was!

A Phenomenal Experience!
Our youngest daughter was married on 10/5/18; the 4th of our 4 children to be married in 4 years! From the moment we met with Bonnie, the sales manager, we all fell in love with the beautiful scenery and venue at Musket Ridge. Bonnie was super sweet, answered all of our questions and convinced my daughter, her fiancé, my husband and I that this was the venue we wanted. From there, we were turned over to Susie......Wow....no words to express Susie's professionalism, kindness, flexibility and love of her job as the event coordinator. Susie met with us several times throughout the planning process, making sure, each time, that things were just as we desired. Susie even decided she would work on the day of our daughter's wedding......the same date as her own wedding anniversary! There are just not enough words to describe and reiterate how well Susie and her team worked to assure that our daughter's wedding was perfect. From start to finish, everything was outstanding and exactly how we wanted things to be. From Sandy, who we met several times in visiting Musket Ridge, to Bev, who was our daughter's "day of" attendant......they did an outstanding job. You will not be disappointed to have a wedding here.......We loved everything about Musket Ridge and this could not have been a better place for our last wedding event!
Having worked with Musket Ridge for almost 8 years, it is a personal favorite. Surrounded by the mountains, views inside Catoctin Hall as well as outside on the grounds are exceptional, the staff is professional and always accomodating, and working with Bonnie is always a pleasure.
A beautiful venue for your wedding day, and a great backdrop for your wedding pictures. We love working at Musket Ridge.
Catoctin Hall is a gorgeous venue that has a lot of open space yet still remains warm and intimate. The stunning vistas are another great plus but the real assets are the people. Bonnie and Jay Jay are proffesionals who I would trust with my own wedding.
