Book this place!!
We got married at the Elks last month on July 6. We knew all along that we wanted our wedding to be in Gloucester and that we NEEDED to be near the water. We checked out quite a few venues before finding the Elks. We loved that Emily was along every step of the way for the year leading up to the wedding. She 'gets it.' She's very approachable, is really responsive over email and phone and I felt like she was really there for us with random little things that popped up. The actual location is of course stunning, and we found it to be super convenient with plenty of hotels on either side of the venue for our friends and family to stay.Sent on 08/13/2019
The day of our wedding started out extremely sunny and perfect and by the time it came for our first look, the sky got extremely dark and the winds started picking up. We ended up having our ceremony outside in the rain (what we wanted) and we couldn't have been happier with the way it all turned out. Our friends and family raved about the view and the location after all was said and done. If you are looking on the North Shore and can't decide- the Elks was an overall awesome experience and great deal for the gorgeous location!

The Elks at Bass Rocks is the best!
We are sooo happy we decided to book The Elks at Bass Rocks as our wedding venue! You cannot beat this view and this location for the price. I can’t say enough good things about the event coordinator, Emily. She was absolutely amazing and went out of her way for us since the very beginning. She was always so quick to respond to questions and anything we needed. From referring me to the best photographer around, to helping me find a last minute EmCee a week before my wedding, Emily went above and beyond for us so that our day would be perfect! We had a family friend as our DJ who wasn’t as experienced on the wedding side of things, and Emily made sure everything ran smoothly and handled the whole night with so much grace and professionalism that none of our guests realized there was anything going wrong. My husband and I got so many compliments about the Elks and the location and how beautiful it is! Any couple/family looking for an affordable Oceanside venue with a million dollar view, The Elks at Bass Rocks has to be your spot!Sent on 09/10/2019

What a view
I am amazed at everything about this venue! When I started planning 2 years ago I never imagined how beautiful outside would be with my decor and what the inside would looks like with al lot decor. From the first time I met with Emily and Brittany, I knew that I would have an amazing night. I am lost for words but want to thank everyone who helped set up and made my night the most memorable one ever! You are all amazing!!!!Sent on 08/04/2019

This is the best seaside wedding venue in the north shore of Boston!! Every view is a perfect view and the updates they did to the inside of the venue is flawless! Great bunch of vendors to choose from and taylor is awesome to work with. Hope to do more events there in the furure.
The Elks at Bass Rocks is an absolutely beautiful location with an amazing wedding coordinator! Perfect waterfront location with staff who have strong attention to detail.
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!
