    Could not have been better

    We had our wedding at the Emerson Inn at the end of April and were so happy with the experience. Candice, the Events Manager, and Emily, the Guest Services Manager, were both incredible throughout the whole process of booking the Inn, rooms, and putting together our wedding. Candice is so detail oriented and thinks of the small things that will make the experience better for you and your guests.

    The rooms are lovely, clean, and very comfortable (the beds are awesome). The food from the Pigeon Cove Tavern was great-we did a buffet and all the food was delicious-and breakfast was yummy as well! Of course, the view and location cannot be beat.

    If you're looking for a relaxing and lovely night away, or a great place to host your wedding on the water-this is it!

    My husband and I got married at the Emerson Inn in September 2018 and it truly is a one of a kind experience. Everyone that attended commented on how cool it was that the entire hotel was only booked by our wedding guests and therefore, anyone they said hello to would be a family member or friend. This was one of the aspects that we ended up loving the most, in fact our nieces and nephew almost got too comfortable and started walking around with no shoes as if it was their home.

    The staff are very helpful and make you feel a part of the family. Candice is a wonderful event manager and really helps you through the entire process and executes everything perfectly on the day of the wedding. I was ecstatic that the venue came with her services as the same day coordinator and I didn’t have to recruit any family to set anything up. Everyone could just enjoy themselves and celebrate!

    We had an event planned each day throughout the weekend, a Welcome Drink, the wedding and then a brunch and they were all executed exactly how we wished. It allowed us to just take in all the moments and really enjoy time with our guests. The food was also so delicious!! We had wedding guests that came up to us and said it was the best meal they ever ate! The breakfast each morning is phenomenal!

    At first, I was nervous about the size of the venue’s dance space, but honestly, it was awesome because our 150 person wedding took over the space and made it a huge dance party! It was incredible! Oh and how can I forget about the views!! One CANNOT beat the view of the venue. It is an absolutely stunning back drop for a wedding ceremony and we were definitely blessed by mother nature the weekend we got married. I highly recommend the Emerson Inn! We will be back to enjoy the ocean view as a getaway too!

    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!
