Renovations Complete at the 86-room Aspen Wye River
Conference Center in Queenstown, Maryland

Owned by the Aspen Institute and Managed by Marriott Hotels & Resorts


Queenstown, M.D. (February 14, 201
2) - Meeting planners looking for an executive retreat 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.  Overlooking the sparkling Wye River on over 1,100 acres of dense woodlands and rolling pastures, this 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 location features such an ambiance of seclusion that it was, in fact, the setting for the Wye River Memorandum — an agreement negotiated between Israel and the Palestine Authority in 1998, where US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yasser Arafat, and then President Bill Clinton were amongst those in attendance.

Unlike most other 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.
 
Aspen Wye River Conference Center offers a total of 7,440 square feet of event space able to accommodate a group of up to 120 people theater style or 100 for a banquet.  The facility also features a total of 86 modern and well-appointed guest rooms with Marriott's signature bedding.  The property is also easily accessible from Newnam Field Airport in Easton, MD; BWI Airport, and Reagan National Airport.
