Prime location and space to be creative
Rock Creek Mansion is a great reception spot for those seeking a location convenient to downtown Bethesda that is more personal than a hotel or country club. The reception hall comfortably held our party of around 130. The space is flexible to your vision and can be dressed up or down. The standard bar menu is somewhat limited, but they are willing to take special requests if you have particular beer or wine you would prefer. The ability to use Rock Creek’s preferred vendors or your own was a nice feature (and I would recommend looking into both their list and other vendors before making a decision). Julie (coordinator) was easy to work with and supportive throughout the process. The house manager spent time helping my family pack up after the event, even though it wasn’t officially part of his job.Sent on 10/21/2019

Our wedding was amazing! Rock creek Mansion is such a nice place. It has a good space that is not divided and it makes everyone part of the celebration.

We love working with Rock Creek Mansion! Very professional and a great space!
Rock Creek Mansion is one of my favorite venues to work at. As a wedding photographer, I am always somewhat limited by the space I am working in, and RCM is gorgeous. Their staff is also friendly and great to work with. I have shot there three times in the last couple of years, and look forward to returning more in the future.
A step back in time with a modern twist. Everything was clean and reasonable priced, I would highly recommend it for a wedding venues, receptions, parties, anniversaries...The staff are so friendly and helpful. Their attention to detail was second to none!
