My son's wedding ceremony was held on the lawn of the Emerson Inn, overlooking the Atlantic, followed by a Sunday brunch reception that utilized their fine dining restaurant, a porch are overlooking the ocean, and an adjoining gathering room that was perfect for mingling before sitting down to eat and for dancing afterward. The bride's and groom's families rented the two adjoining cottages for several days leading up to the wedding and a few days after. This gave everyone a chance to get to know one another and was a perfect location for a rehearsal dinner clambake, held in a tent that was set up between the two properties and catered by Woodman's. The staff at the Inn could not have been more friendly and attentive. Melissa Hobbs is a superwoman who seemed to be anywhere she was needed. Everyone at the Inn was sensitive to the fact that we were working with a limited budget, and rather than pressuring us or upselling, they worked with us to make the festivities very, very special.

Emerson Inn by the Sea is one of those special places that you are so glad to know about but also wish it stayed your personal little secret because it is just THAT special! The staff knows how to properly take care of their guests and share in your excitement for your event! Need a certain type of music to add a special touch to your dinner? They do that! Need a recommendation for a welcome gift? They can refer you! The Emerson and its staff are truly wonderful to deal with and it's rare to find places where the service matches the view!
