Our daughter's wedding at The Chebeague Island Inn was more than I had hoped for. It was elegant, but, at the same time, so intimate and easygoing. All of our guests had such a great time. Two months later, we are still getting rave reviews! The staff went the extra mile with every detail. I would definitely recommend staying at the inn also. What an experience!

My wife and I were married at Chebeague Island Inn in September 2013 and could not have asked for a better venue. The staff at the Inn went above and beyond during our wedding weekend and were willing to help out where necessary. The Inn itself is amazing, it sits on top of a hill overlooking the bay, there is a fantastic great room with a fireplace, nice little bar area, and a deck where you can sit and watch the sunset. The Inn also added a fire-pit which we took full advantage of. All of our guests really enjoyed their time at the Inn and on the Island, we couldn't have asked for a better venue.

This is a very "a la carte" spot. They provide the food/drink and the Inn/Land, but you have to bring everything else in (including your guests). The logistics can be somewhat complicated, but Caitlin, the Inn's event planner, helps you with the details. We did not hire a "day of" coordinator, but if you're not the super organized type, definitely a must.
The venue is absolutely beautiful, it's really fun to have all the rooms in the inn (although yes, other people can come eat at the restaurant, but we didn't mind that much) and the food is amazing, not your typical "warming drawer" wedding food. Every plate of scallops and steak was grilled to order right before it was served to our 150 guests. Beforehand, we designed the evenings menu's with the Inn's chef, so we really were able to make it our own.
The cons were that things were a little disorganized here and there, in terms of serving food, and billing rooms for items, the majority of the staff are a bunch of high school/college kids who definitely are not serving experts, but everyone was very polite and accommodating. And of course, bringing everything in from the tent to the flowers was a little hard in terms of logistics.
Caitlin was amazing throughout the process and nothing fell through the cracks on our wedding day. Sometimes she was slow to respond, but we always got an answer.
Just one last thing to keep in mind - it's hard to find places on the island for guests to stay and the inn only has 21 rooms, so most people will have to stay off island. AND, they told us getting late night water taxis for guests would be easy, it is not. Basically for anyone not staying on the island, they will need to leave via boat around 10:30pm at the latest due to laws on the mainland.
