History
This venue’s history started in 1875 as the Lyman Brothers Boat Builder company. They produced the Lyman boat after establishing their boat yard near Cleveland, Ohio. In the late 1920s the brothers renamed their company to Lyman Boat Works and relocated to the venue’s current location in Sandusky. The factory initially produced small sailing and rowing vessels, but by the mid-20th century was churning out custom sail and power boats. Production finally ceased in 1973 as the demand for wooden boats disappeared. Lyman Harbor opened in 2002 as an event venue under new ownership, and has been welcoming sailors and celebrators ever since.

    Beautiful venue!

    This is such a lovely venue and working with Lea Ann was great. She was very responsive to all of our questions/concerns/needs and had absolutely every detail we previously talked about done by the actual wedding. The wedding went on flawlessly thanks to Lyman Harbor. Lots of beautiful places to take pics as well both indoors and outdoors!

    - Lyman Harbor was the perfect venue for our wedding reception! Here are some of the highlights:
    o Staff: excellent. Everyone we worked with at Lyman was very professional and pleasant to work with. Although they experienced some turnover while planning our reception, Lea Ann (the owner) stepped in to help manage our plans to ensure nothing was missed during staffing transitions. Prior to our wedding, a new coordinator, Kelly, was hired onboard and she was amazing! She was brand new to Lyman but you could tell immediately that she has many years of experience in hospitality and event planning. She jumped right in and made sure she was 100% up-to-date on the day-of schedule.
    o Food: very good. All the food for your event is prepared on-site at Lyman by their in-house team. We had appetizers for our outdoor cocktail hour. We didn’t get too try much ourselves as we were busy mingling with guests- but the food was gone before we knew it and received high praise from our guests! For dinner, we chose the Anchor package. Our room set up was 9 long banquet tables and we had dinner served family style. They brought out trays of food for each table to be passed around with plenty of food on each tray. The food was very good and no one left hungry.
    o Venue: excellent. You cannot beat the view at Lyman Harbor! With the large garage-door style windows overlooking the water and Cedar Point on top of the beautiful large light fixtures in the room, there isn’t a whole lot of decorating you need to do in addition to what is already there. We were initially worried that the room would fee empty as we only had 150 guests, but the room filled right up and the open space in the back near the restrooms and the kitchen was hardly noticeable.

    It is nice to work with a "Local" business. You really do have the best view on Sandusky Bay! We are looking forward to the summer bridal show.

    I've been to a few weddings at Lyman Harbor over the years. This is a beautiful venue. Located right on the water, you really couldn't ask for a better view. I'd highly recommend this venue for your special day!
