    Amazing event space and beautiful accommodations

    Haven on the Banks is the perfect combination of lodging and event venue. The Keepers Galley is beautiful, amazing bridal get ready suite and plenty of room for celebration. The cottages are clean, beautifully decorated, & lots of special amenities provided by the proprietor. Tara, Gerry & Nancy are professional and so easy to work with. They ensured that our daughter’s wedding weekend was exactly what she dreamed of. Highly recommend!!

    Best Service and Incredibly Accomadating

    I can't recommend this venue enough. The space was absolutely gorgeous and Nancy, the concierge, was able to pair us with local vendors on short notice to make our event incredible. They were incredibly flexible with our group and willing to accommodate any of our needs. If you are looking for an easy event process in a beautiful space, definitely book with these lovely people.

    Haven on the Banks featuring Keeper’s Galley's reply:

    Thank you so much for this amazing review, Elliott! We loved having you and your group at The Barn! We hope you will make it an annual tradition!

It all started with a bike ride!

We are your hosts, Tara and Gerry. We married in 2016, with both of us bringing together children from previous marriages. As a newly married couple, we wanted to tackle something new together - something we could create - something that would hopefully make a difference in our community. So, we went for a bike ride!

One beautiful Sunday afternoon, as we rode our bikes down the beach road, we observed several tents scattered along the route. We soon learned there were six wedding in progress! The idea for Haven on the Banks and Keeper's Galley was born!
