We booked Haven on the Banks for a 3 night stay at the cottages and the reception for our wedding. We love the all together feel, amenities, beautiful decor, the property. It is such a beautiful place and worth it. Our wedding was absolutely amazing and can't wait to stay at Haven on the Banks again.Sent on 11/08/2020

Stunning Venue for our Wedding
We had to change our wedding venue due to Covid, but Tara and Haven on the Banks made it all worth it. The venue itself is gorgeous on its own, plus the beautiful outdoor place and proximity to the beach for our beach wedding was an added bonus. Tara really has thought out everything needed for an event space and made it top notch. The get ready spaces, the spiral staircase, the lights, even the bathrooms, everything was spectacular. We are so happy we had to change our venues, because otherwise we would have missed out on this beautiful space for our wedding! We couldn't have been more happy with how the day turned out all because of Tara and Haven on the Banks! :) Photos are from TracyLynn Photography in Warren, Ohio.Sent on 05/11/2021

The cottages, perfect. The venue, perfect. The weekend, dreamlike. Hands down, Haven on the Banks is the BEST VENUE on the planet. Tara and Gerry poured their heart and souls into these properties and it shows! We have 100% trusted in their vision from kneeling in construction dust saying “yes to the address” all the way until we were next up to “tack the plaque”! The attention to detail exhibited by Tara and Gerry is astonishing and we wanted for NOTHING during our wedding weekend festivities. Keeper’s Galley was absolutely magical. A short walk down the street to Small Dr. for our stunning beachfront ceremony and on to the gorgeous courtyard for our post-ceremony happy hour. The cottages were pristine and modern and bright. We are still actively swooning over those front porch views! The weekend was blissful, relaxing, and practically stress-free knowing we had our wedding party and immediate family in the houses with us and the rest of our guests within walking distance to the venue. Our guests are still ranting and raving about the weekend and the amenities! We couldn’t have dreamed up a better weekend to celebrate our marriage and that is due mostly to Tara and Gerry who have become family to us. We can’t begin to say thank you enough to those 2 for keeping us (mostly me) grounded throughout planning a wedding in the midst of a pandemic, but we love them and they know we couldn’t have done this without them. The Simpsons love you, Wilkinses! Best. Wedding. Ever.Sent on 05/02/2021

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!
