Life saver during covid-19!
Where to begin... our original venue cancelled on us 5 weeks before the wedding, after we had already changed the date with them once before. We contacted 10 venues and visited 6. Far and above the best was Queen's Harbor Yacht and Country Club. Beth Vanderberg called us when she got into her office right away and invited us to see the venue. We discussed our budget and out needs, and she said she would "try to see if she can help us out and stay in budget." Not only did she try and see, but she went way above and beyond. She and her crew bent over backwards to help us out with so many things, large and small. I have VERY high standards for communication and efficiency, and she was "10/10 would use this company again!" Kind, helpful, thoughtful, professional, classy. On an unrelated note, the venue is beautiful, whether you do things indoors our outdoors (we got married outdoors in late June... hot as $h!t but at 5pm when the ceremony started, we were well-shaded by the huge stand of old oaks that shelter the site. She must have taken pity on our plight because she provided a number of extra services to us gratis under our specific circumstances. It was about making a beautiful, magical event, not about nickle-and-diming us to death. Beth has done many a wedding before and knows exactly what to do and when to do it... we felt very well-taken-care of the whole time. We ended up getting a tremendous deal for what we spent, and we are very thankful to have found Beth and her group at Queen's Harbor Yacht and Country Club to make our wedding absolutely amazing!Sent on 06/30/2020

Very Accommodating to Our Last Minute Wedding Needs!
With the unprecedented times we are facing our original wedding had to be postponed until next year due to the pandemic. Queen's Harbour Yacht and Country Club and specifically Beth were so accommodating to our last minute request to hold a small ceremony so we could still get married on our original day! We can't thank Beth and her staff enough for helping make our last minute ceremony even more special than we could have imagined. Not only are the grounds beautiful but the staff is great as well. I highly recommend!Sent on 05/14/2020

Beth Vanderberg and the entire staff helped give our kids the wedding of their dreams!!
When my son and daughter-in-law started planning their wedding, Queen's Harbour was at the top of our list, not only because my son grew up in the neighborhood and we knew how beautiful the location was, but because when we met with Beth Vanderberg, the wedding coordinator, we saw that she would do everything she could to make the wedding a special and memorable event. What we would soon learn was how wonderful, professional, caring and helpful the entire staff would turn out to be.
Some vendors go out of their way to let you know that your wedding is not the only one on their calendar. Not Beth. She always made us feel like our wedding was her only priority. She answered every email or phone call promptly, helped to make sure everything was within our budget, and consistently worked to make sure that our wedding was everything that our kids dreamed it would be. She sat down with us at our tasting (which was wonderful by the way - compliments to the chef) and went detail by detail over things that we didn't even think about to make sure the event was carried out in an orderly fashion.
We received compliments all night long on the food and the service. One of the staff members, Lynne Covington, even noticed that we had a friend in a wheelchair and offered to prepare him a plate and take it to him so he wouldn't have to navigate his way in line.
We didn't know about many of the things that the staff did behind the scenes to make the day go smoothly until later (We probably still don't know about some). They may have seemed small, but they didn't go unnoticed by our family our our guests. It was so wonderful and so appreciated that we didn't have to worry about anything and could just let the day unfold.
If you are looking for a special place to have a wedding, without hesitation, our entire family can recommend Queen's Harbour Yacht and Country Club. Beth and the entire staff will work tirelessly to give you the wedding of your dreams!! I know they did for our family!Sent on 06/20/2019
