President Lincoln Cottage 

Timeless Hidden Gem in Washington, DC

Located right in the heart of the city, President Lincoln’s Cottage is arguably the most historically significant property available as an event venue in Washington DC. Take a step back in time while soaking in the Gothic Revival style of President Lincoln’s Cottage. 

The venue offers several creative options for picturesque Spring events. Grounds are landscaped with native plants, and absolutely stunning for an outdoor ceremony. The history behind the cottage serves up great conversations over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Finally, enjoy a fully seated dinner and desserts under a tent overlooking the cottage.

Oxon Hill Manor

Stately Spring Estate

Sitting high on a hill with a fantastic view of the Potomac River is Oxon Hill Manor. Constructed in 1928, the manor and grounds include formal English gardens and exquisitely appointed rooms.

There has been an increase in “out of season” weddings lately. But Spring still dominates the wedding scene and it is easy to see why. Combining both fresh seasonal menus with a lovely Spring day is a recipe for success!


Everything about working with Catering by Season, from the planning, communication, to the execution was phenomenal!

Catering By Seasons exceeded my expectation. I used them for a brunch at my house after my son’s bar mitzvah. The level of professionalism along with their responsiveness made me feel at ease right away.

I can’t say enough great things about our entire experience planning our daughter's Bat Mitzvah with Glynis Keith, Catering Manager, with Catering by Seasons.
