Truly the best value (optimizing for both price and quality) waterfront venue out there -- much more incredible than the pictures, you really need to see it in person to appreciate it. My fiance and I looked at over 20 waterfront venues in 5 different regions of the country, and decided on the Stage Neck based on what looked to be an excellent quality service and stunning location / views at a very, very fair Saturday night price. We were even more pleased with the venue than we thought we would be when we'd booked. Several things truly exceeded our expectations -- the food was actual nice restaurant quality standard (NOT like a big chain hotel room service menu -- trust me I eat a lot of room service for my job and did not want this for my guests), Dawn is incredibly organized and easy to work with and ran everything extremely smoothly day of, the venue is overall a very honest establishment (they let us make some last minute changes with no charges -- which I find to be rare in the world of weddings, didn't have a bunch of extra line item fees). Based on my market research Stage Neck is probably underpriced compared to what they offer. Would 100% recommend and repeat our decision, and I look forward to returning to the property in coming years to celebrate our anniversary. One minor thing to note -- at least for our year, tastings were only held once a year, and most but not all food choices are available to try, but we were able to return to the venue at a separate time and try the couple of items we weren't able to have then at no charge (again, the venue went above and beyond to accommodate us).Sent on 12/23/2016

Visit The Stage Neck and you won't need to see another place
The Stage Neck absolutely helped us have an incredible wedding and overall experience. If you want a wedding in York and at the beach, there should be no other place to visit besides The Stage Neck. It was our first visit and we didn't need to visit another venue. The packages are incredibly convenient, including vendors for DJ and cake ( a huge weight off the mind, and the vendors are fantastic). DJ Fred knows his stuff and got compliments all night for his music picks and atmosphere. Maryann made a gorgeous and delicious cake and was so patient and welcoming while meeting and listening to what we were looking for.Sent on 07/26/2019
The facility is stunning. It feels exclusive to your wedding. The ceremony setting is incredible. We saw it in January and were impressed. By summer, the view was unbelievable. So many of our guests remarked at how beautiful their surroundings were. They have a great space for a cocktail hour and inside was a great fit for our numbers. The food was tremendous, especially the appetizers, and our guests had nothing but great things to say about their meals.
The absolute BEST part of our experience was working with Dawn. From the beginning, Dawn was receptive and knowledgeable. She seemed to quickly get our personalities and her suggestions and advice were spot on for parts of the process we had not even considered or would have been lost on. Day of, Dawn was calm, supportive, and a perfect help. We felt total trust with her running the show. She truly helped us feel not an ounce of stress leading up to our big day.
We plane to make The Stage Neck our go to getaway for years to come because of our positive and unforgettable experience.

This place made my dreams come true!
This venue is in a prime location if you want to be by the ocean! The staff are so nice and accommodating! Their day of wedding coordinator is fantastic! Anything I asked for, she made it happen! The day of my wedding, the weather was questionable, but my coordinator watched the weather until the last minute and was able to set up for an outdoor ceremony that went perfectly! The reception space is small, so can accommodate up to about 120/150 guests, which worked out very well for us! The food was excellent and the DJ got everyone up and dancing! My dreams really came true here!Sent on 06/26/2019
The Stage Neck Inn is one of the most beautiful venue's on the seacoast. The views are beautiful and the cuisine is excellent! Wedding celebrations are fantastic. The ceremony on the ocean and the reception in the Harbor View Room is an incredible experience!
Stage Neck Inn is absolutely one of my favorite locations to photograph weddings and events. I live only 15 minutes from there and I am very familiar with the whole area. This Venue has amazing backgrounds for portraits and the staff is very professional in every way from accommodations, coordination, guidance, you name it. Their location is very nice too. There is plenty little spots to choose for photos - on the ocean, beach, park, cliffs, just about anything you can ask for. Great choice for a wedding day for sure :)
