    Classic Cape Wedding

    We had such an amazing wedding reception at The Coonamessett. The Lark Suite was perfect to get ready in for my four person bridal party. The space is absolutely beautiful and the food was phenomenal. Best food we have ever had at a wedding and all our guests were raving about it. Dawn and her staff made sure we had a fantastic time and I couldn’t recommend this venue more!

    Amazing Venue!

    We had the most wonderful wedding weekend at the Coonamessett! Our winter wonderland vision came to life with the help of all the staff. It was cozy, fun, and exactly what we envisioned (not to mention the food was amazing). I would highly recommend the Coonamessett.

    Beautiful flexible venue

    This venue has everything. We had our rehearsal dinner here, our wedding party, direct family, and ourselves stayed here, and we had our big day here! If you have a large amount of people staying over there is another hotel across the street for additional guests. The food is beyond amazing. All of our guests (us included) were amazed at the food options and taste. John and Dawn were amazing. They wete extremely flexible with us. My husband and I stayed in the Lark Suite which wss great beacise my girls and I could get ready here. There is a big beautiful bay window thay over looks the pond that was wonderful for pictures. There is also a bridal suite that you can get ready in. My husband and his guys actually hung out in there. I highly recommend this venue. We had a wonderful experience!
