Potomac Park Retreat & Conference Center is the Baltimore and DC region conference center in the Christian Retreats Network. We feature year-round recreation and accommodations for up to 400 overnight guests. Our quiet and peaceful property is a destination to encounter God and His creation.

Our retreat packages include everything your group needs for a successful ministry event: lodging, dining, meeting, and recreation.

Food & Beverage Options

Dining Room

Buffet dining is a standard feature included in all our retreat packages. We offer self-service buffet lines for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our Lakeside Dining Room, allowing you to enjoy an all-you-can-eat experience.

Meeting Room Food and Beverage Service

It’s the idea of water cooler talk; people gather around food to fellowship! So let us help you get the most out of your retreat fellowship times. Let us handle all preparation and clean up, so you can focus on ministering to your attendees. You can add some extra comfort to your meeting room with a hot decanter of coffee, teas, or ice water; maybe a tray of fruit, vegetables, cheese and crackers, or fresh baked cookies. Think outside the box! Try our s’mores package during your group bonfire.

One of the staff directors stuck around to ensure that we were comfortable and had what we needed. He talked about his vision for improvements to the retreat center and 2 staff members checked on us at the fire pit to ensure that everything was okay. It’s good that the staff makes its presence known and checks with guests.
