Absolutely STUNNING house!

We stayed at The Dream Maker and it truly made my dreams come true! From start to finish, Liz was SO easy to work with and answered our questions in such a timely manner, gave us amazing recommendations, and an incredible vendor referral list. We had our wedding on Saturday 9/10/22 - and the weather was calling for horrible rain all day long. My mom talked to Liz two days before the wedding and calmed everyone's nerves! She also explained that weather on Ocean Isle can be so unpredictable and to not give up on sunshine! Well...she was so right! We ended up SEEING a tornado on the beach on the morning of our wedding and then sunny skies the rest of the day. The house is GORGEOUS, spacious, and can accommodate any kind of weather! There is an incredible space for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready and beautiful bedrooms/ bathrooms. Stop looking at wedding venues and have a beach wedding!

Excellent from dreaming to achieving!

The Dream Maker was perfect for a destination beach wedding! Liz was great to work with, provided us with a list of vendors, and answered all of our questions promptly. Her customer service was top notch. The property was beautiful and provided an amazing backdrop for our special week. We had plenty of room for all of our guests and the beds were super comfy. In addition, the property that was handicap accessible, which made it easy to accommodate our kiddos wheelchair. OIB is not commercialized which helped give our event the secluded, private feel we were looking for. We will definitely use Luxury Lodging by Laura again for future family gatherings.

Would definitely do it all over again!

We are from New Jersey and were looking for a reasonable destination wedding location. We definitely found what we were for with Luxury Lodging by Laura at The Dream Maker house. It is an amazing location and we saved a ton of money compared to what we would have spent for a single day event here. Having most of our guests staying in the house and others at the hotel just down the street made it perfect for us. They were quick to answer questions and eased our minds about planning a wedding from several states away. We would do it all over again, without hesitation!
