    We were there on Labor a day and the tail end of hurricane Hermine. While we did not get the rain predicted, there was crazy wind and surf all evening. Under the tent, we were completely protected from the wind and yet still had a perfect view of the ocean and the beautiful surf. The staff was extremely helpful, tied the tent down completely, and we enjoyed a day of sun, clouds, rainbows and sunsets. Could not have been more perfect.

    SSC is one of our favorite venues! Not only because it's incredibly friendly and hard-working staff, but for the most amazingly beautiful settings along the New England coast. The grounds are immaculate and allow for plenty of room for the guests to spread out and enjoy~and every sunset is spectacular! Looking forward to many more events at SSC
