    Such a positive experience with the venue and the Lions Club members that we worked with!

    The fact that this venue can be indoor or outdoor makes it so versatile and SO worth it! You get more than what you pay for with this venue, especially since it's right on the water! We loved our experience here and the place is beautiful, especially with all the recent renovations. I recommend this venue to anyone who wants to have their wedding on Peaks Island and for a worthwhile wedding experience! Our wedding day couldn't have been more perfect!

    Beautiful & relaxed

    Tucked away from the busy down front area, but just a short walk from the ferry. This venue was more perfect than we could imagine. The views and venue itself offer a relaxed sense of feeling - just what you need and want on your wedding day. Affordable and easy to deal with as well. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.
