    Book this venue!

    We picked this venue because of the beautiful location and space. You can’t beat the ocean view! And you can’t beat the price! Kimberly, the event coordinator, was SPECTACULAR! She is a pro in the wedding industry! She spoke about all the little details and had so many awesome suggestions. During one of our visits with Kimberly, she made us a detailed floor plan and wedding timeline that was so awesome to have! It was so easy and convenient to forward it to all of our other vendors so everyone was on the same page. Aside from her attention to detail, Kimberly made me feel SO COMFORTABLE! She was like a wedding mama you need when you’re feeling nervous! She made sure I was feeling good and comfortable at all times. She helped me with so much and I’m so thankful I had her by my side that day.

    Vinwood Catering is from one of their preselected lists of caterers to chose from. We absolutely loved working with Gary and his team. Everyone LOVED the food!

    We don't have our professional photos yet, but I attached some cell phone pictures for now!

    Miss you already. You were both so wonderful to work with. It was a windy day but everything worked out just as planned. The decor was so beautiful and the flowers were amazing. So honored to have had the pleasure of working with both of you. I hope our paths cross again VERY soon. Thank you for the amazing review.

    Beautiful venue awesome staff

    We had to rebook our wedding due to covid and we had an old coordinator I believe her name was Emily then we were introduced to Kimberly and man was she a dream to work with. She was very responsive to emails calls and or texts she knew every answer to our questions. She made our day a dream come true. Kimberly definitely deserves a raise! The location is perfect and the view wow is all I got say the view is stunning!

    Thank you, Belinda. You were a dream to work with as well. WE had some great laughs and memories to last a lifetime. I wish you and Pat a very long and happy marriage and can't wait to work with both of you again.

There are many private event venues in Gloucester but none boast a better location than The Elks at Bass Rocks. The ocean view is breathtaking and the staff, who seems to have remained in tact forever, makes every event exceedingly pleasant. We've never worked with such a personable onsite staff and their space, which has undergone recent renovations, is beautiful. If you want an event on the ocean of the North Shore, there's no better choice!
