    Amazing!!!

    I meet with Michael at Danversport and when we arrived her was already outside of the venue with all information in hand awaiting our arrival. He was so warm and welcoming and took all the time to answer our questions. We then called back a few hours after the tour to ask more questions about the venue and got a call back the same day!! They have been so helpful and we feel truly cared for.

    Our dream wedding 10/08/21

    We had our dream wedding at Danversport! We worked with several people during our wedding planning and everyone was very knowledgeable and attentive! Everything from the grounds to the food was exactly how I had imagined it.

    Mostly Amazing

    We ran about 1 & 1/2 hours late. The staff was great about giving us options where we might be able to save time but left it to us to decide instead of just cutting things short. The food was delicious (many of my guests also thought so) from cocktail hour to the dinner. We had our ceremony there as well we had the pergola & it was stunning! The rehearsal, I felt, would've been better if I had the officiant there (NOT Danversport's fault just a word of advice for anyone reading this) I gave 5* but there were definitely a few things I was upset about. We ordered the "Late Night Snacks" I was told they'd be handed out & they weren't they were sitting on a table with the boxes OPEN during COVID? They tended to me (bride) & the head table (8ppl) wonderfully the day-of however I felt they could've been more attentive to my mom ESPECIALLY because she's disabled. I got my own centerpieces (they have ones you can use) & I know not all of the lights were used & they didnt give them back. Come the very end of the night there was not a staff member ANYWHERE to ask for anything. A few other things but nothing I feel to be mentioned here. They're super professional & great to work with the fact that it's a wedding "package" is definitely a plus! All in all I would recommend.

I have been very fortunate to have been the featured DJ for an event in each of the accommodating event spaces Danversport has to offer. This venue truly offers a setting for any style and personality. The staff there, Ron and Nancy for example, are extremely accommodating, organized, and operate smoothly. Your event whether it is for 20 or 200 people will get the attention it deserves. Recent renovations have only helped modernize this popular venue even more. If you are considering a venue to host your event, do not hesitate to visit the Danversport. Take a trip on a nice summer or fall day and walk around the grounds, enjoy the view. Danversport is one of the finest venues north of Boston!
