My husband and I just got married at Swan Cove Manor and it was without a doubt the best weekend of our lives! We rented all 4 houses on the property and had our families and wedding party stay at the houses with us. The Quarterdeck was a great space for my husband and I and we loved the shower. All of the houses were great, well kept and cozy. We had an outdoor rehearsal dinner by the water behind the Chart house. Many stayed around and we sat by the fire, roasted marshmallows and our family and friends had the time to get to know one another.Sent on 09/06/2016
Although we were in the path of a hurricane on our wedding day, everyone was relaxed because we had already had so much fun already. Luckily the hurricane missed us. We had a tent behind the Mariner and the ladies got hair and makeup done at the large table in the house. When I put my dress on in the first floor room of the Mariner it was cool to be able to look out and see guests arriving and get a sneak peak of my husband. We got married in front of the dock closest and it was beautiful. The dock and surrounding grassy areas were great photo locations.
Our wedding was perfect. Our photographer, Mike Sperlak was on point and got every candid moment we would have wanted captured including some guests jumping into the water later in the evening. It was a stress reliever to be able to let the night flow vs being on a tight schedule because we did not have a time limit at the venue.
The next day we held a bbq and cornhole tournament where we drank, ate, and engaged in friendly competition. It was awesome being able to spend time with friends and family. We did not feel that we had to spend our wedding day visiting with people because we had the opportunity to see most of the guests during the weekend. Many guests said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. My husband and I highly recommend Swan Cove Manor. It was the best, most memorable way to start our lives together.
Swan Cove Manor's reply:Dear Kathy and Corey, Your review means so much to us. I loved seeing your photos. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed themselves at Swan Cove Manor. I am glad you had the time to relax and get to be with everyone. I think that is so very important. Although our venue isn't for everyone, I suggest that the bridal couple consider the fact that at a hotel or country club they typically get 4 or 5 hours to spend with their guests. That means, assuming they spend 1 hour for dinner, photos and time with each other during the event, they will have about 4 hours (240 minutes) to meet and greet their guests. This means for the average wedding of 120 people, the bridal couple will have about 2 minutes with each guest, if their time is shared evenly. At Swan Cove Manor there's plenty of time to meet and share with everyone. I've always considered that to be of great value and I am so glad you took advantage of that opportunity.

Excellent customer service
My fiance and I were looking at this as out venue for our wedding. The customer service and responsiveness to our questions was quick and friendly. This venue would have been a great choice if my fiance and I hadn't chosen to go with a destination wedding instead!Sent on 02/06/2019
