    The perfect combination of destination beauty and a warmth akin to home

    We chose the 1774 Inn in large part because of our experience on our first visit. We got to meet Marianne, our eventual wedding coordinator, and one of the owners, Stuart. The first thing that we noticed about the Inn is the obvious, the setting is beautiful, and the vibe is wonderfully calming. We came to realize so much more about the Inn during the following two years we spent planning our wedding. The owners are incredibly kind and down to earth. Throughout our entire experience Sarah and Stuart (the owners) kept working on the Inn, creating the Hayloft suite and retouching many of the rooms at the Inn with their unique sense of style and quality. Our experience in planning the wedding and working with the Inn could not have been better. Marianne and the owners have extensive experience with vendors in the area and were an instrumental resource for us as we chose our perfect vendor team. The 1774 Inn was our first decision in planning our wedding and we could not have chosen a more wonderful group of people to work with. That became very evident on our wedding day. It was perfect. We got to experience Kindness Day in Bath, fireworks on the beach at Popham that happily coincided with our rehearsal dinner, Sarah’s delicious breakfast on the morning of our wedding, and a wonderful familial atmosphere at the Inn in the days leading up to our wedding. A wedding at the 1774 Inn has all the wonderful photographic and experiential benefits of a destination wedding as well as the feel of a backyard wedding with family you haven’t seen for a long time and can’t wait to catch up with. We loved every second of our stay and highly recommend making use of the outdoor firepit, Popham beach and the surrounding Bath area, as well as the ability to spend the morning after the wedding at the 1774 Inn. We were initially planning on leaving our wedding on our wedding night but were convinced to stay the night at the Inn and have breakfast with our wedding party and family members on Sunday morning. It was the perfect decision for us and is a wonderfully insightful benefit of the 1774 Inn. We truly cannot say a single bad thing about the Inn, and the people that work there. As a result of some unforeseen circumstances, we had to adjust the schedule of our wedding day slightly and make some other changes. Everyone at the Inn was super helpful, supportive, flexible, and put us at ease throughout the day. Everybody always says their wedding day was the best day ever. Ours truly was, and the people who made it possible at the 1774 Inn are people we will not only be forever grateful too, but they are also people we will think of from now on as close friends. You will not find this combination of scenic beauty, wonderful people, and historic awe anywhere else. We could not be happier with everything about our wedding experience with the 1774 Inn.

    Beautiful wedding venue

    Our wedding at the 1774 Inn was a dream! Every aspect of the day was gorgeous, from the stunning waterfront view during our outdoor ceremony, to the beautiful driftwood arbor under which we said our vows, to the charming hay barn where we had our reception, and even down to the lovely handmade farm tables they provided for our dinner. Marianne, Stuart, and Sarah were great to work with - they were warm, friendly, and there to guide us throughout the wedding planning process. Our entire wedding party was able to stay at the inn during our wedding weekend, and it was so nice to be surrounded by our family and friends during that time. We are so happy and grateful to have had our wedding at the 1774 Inn, and we couldn't have asked for a better venue or a better team to work with!

    Perfect, Beautiful, Classic Maine Waterfront Wedding

    We cannot have been more thrilled about our wedding at the 1774 Inn! The entire team, Sarah, Stuart, and Marianne were there with us for our entire journey, and helped make our vision a reality. We were originally struck by their kindness and warmth, and this feeling stayed with us throughout our wedding planning process. Our wedding weekend at 1774 Inn was magical. Having the manor house to ourselves with our closest family members, eating local yogurt with fresh Maine blueberries for breakfast alongside homemade granola, sitting out on the lawn drinking beer overlooking the water, and having smores by the fire the night before we left were all part of the 1774 Inn experience. The wedding itself was absolutely beautiful, and even our pickiest friends and family members asked "How did you find this place?". Sarah, Stuart, and Marianne worked with us every step of the way to make sure that we could have an outdoor dance floor, we could have a firepit, and we could use an arch made by my grandfather. I cannot recommend the 1774 Inn highly enough for an absolutely perfect Maine wedding.

The 1774 Inn is one of our favorite venues in Maine. Jacqueline couldn't be a more pleasant and accommodating host. We were impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail. The Inn is beautifully situated in Phippsburg overlooking the ocean with a nicely sloped expansive lawn- perfect for a wedding of any size. The Inn is impeccably decorated inside with tasteful colors and textiles. We would highly recommend this venue to any prospective couples.
