Inside our beautiful Chapel Mausoleum, Resthaven features Central Maryland’s first and only, permanently lit glass-front niches.

Because we operate our own crematory, you or your loved one will never leave the care of Resthaven.
The Cactoctin Columbaria consist currently of a single outdoor granite columbarium, with single as well as companion niches that accommodate suitably shaped urns. The niches face either East or West, and offer simplified bronze nameplates for memorialization.
These niches are located in front of the Birchlawn Garden Mausoleum Buildings I & II, which are best known for their gorgeous, rare Rainbow Granite construction.
With a choice of East or West facing Niches, and its location alongside the main roadway and mausoleum walkway, the Catoctin Columbarium provides an elegant, accessible, and affordable final resting place for cremated remains.
Our scenic scattering garden is located in a quiet corner of Resthaven, visible between the wings of the Phoenix in the First Veterans Shrine, and surrounded by the Garden with the statue of St John. Featured is a poem by Helen Stellar Rice, called "Life Is Eternal", cast in timeless bronze, with name scrolls forever memorializing the names and dates of the lives commemorated here.

Our scenic Arbor Walk Cremation garden is located in a quiet corner of Resthaven, visible between the wings of the Phoenix in the First Veterans Shrine, and surrounded by the Veterans Garden of Honor I and the Garden of St John. Featured beneath a statue of St. John is a poem by Helen Stellar Rice, called "Life Is Eternal", cast in timeless bronze. A scattering garden lies aft of the statue’s base, with name scrolls forever memorializing the names and dates of the lives commemorated here.
Circle of Honor
Our first veterans area specifically designated for cremation, rests in the heart of the Veterans Garden of Honor and its five flags for each branch of the armed services. In the center is Resthaven’s infamous Phoenix sculpture by the revered artist Alex Russo, a arts professor at Hood Collage decades ago. The circular design allows for selecting for almost any view desired while visiting, while providing faithful and fitting tribute to those who have served our country.
Traditional Burial Gardens
At Resthaven, we have many pristine areas on our grounds set aside for traditional burial or cremation burial. Choose from a variety of tree-shaded, landscaped garden vistas or beautiful garden sites near unique statuary or memorial features. Within our various gardens you can personalize the site with a custom crafted bronze memorial, or in some areas an etched or engraved granite upright monument, or even a memorial bench. Companion and family cremation estates are also available in the form of cremation benches and boulders, private columbaria, and pedestals for birdbaths, sundials and other features.
Portions of the gardens at Resthaven Memorial Gardens have been designated for exclusive family estates. When you work with us to plan your own private estate, you determine how you want to design your space. You have an option to create a lawn area for ground burial, design a niche garden, have your own mausoleum constructed, or choose a combination of the above. Special ten-year financial terms(pre-need) are available for these exclusive, permanent structures and gardens. For more information about creating a custom private estate for your family.
