The Inn on Peaks Island is a wedding venue located on Peaks Island, Maine. This private island is only accessed by boat and gives soon-to-be-weds a secluded, private setting to exchange their vows. The hotel’s idyllic seaside views, combined with cozy accommodations, mouthwatering cuisine, and a dedicated onsite team, will make any couple’s big day one to remember.

Facilities and Capacity

The Inn on Peaks Island is nestled on the stunning Casco Bay, just a 15-minute boat ride from downtown Portland. This location is ideal for anyone dreaming of a tranquil getaway for their ceremony and reception, and can host events ranging from 50 to 200 guests. Couples that spend their wedding weekend here will have access to both indoor and outdoor event spaces, which sport a seaside elegance in their aesthetic. One of their more intimate ceremony locations is a romantic gazebo, settled on the spacious lawn area. A paved walkway acts as a designated aisle, leading to the altar, while lush greenery and gardens surround the happy couple and their seated guests. Guests can gather along the inn’s covered porch or indoor lounge for their cocktail hour, before moving to the spacious restaurant for their reception. An event tent is also available for newlyweds and their loved ones to dine and dance under the stars. Visitors are just a short walk from the shore and can have photo sessions or gentle strolls with crashing waves as natural background music. You and your loved ones will have seven cottage-style suites to choose from, featuring Jacuzzi tubs, cozy sitting areas, and plenty of natural light.

Services Offered

The event team will work with you throughout your planning process, to help you make your nuptial dream into a reality. They will handle the setup and cleanup of your venue space, while you spend time with your loved ones. Decor items are available, including aisle markers, lighting, and tabletop items, to complete a newlywed’s elegant design. Servers and bartenders will be present on the big day, to make sure each guest is cared for throughout the evening.

Cuisine

The restaurant’s culinary team offers various delicious creations, adding a contemporary touch to classic New England dishes. Their hors d’oeuvres range from hearty lollipop lamb chops to prosciutto-wrapped scallops. Couples have a variety of dishes to choose from, and the staff can accommodate buffet, plated, or family-style serving methods. They will happily customize your menu, from your rehearsal dinner to your dessert table, to feature the flavors and ingredients you prefer.

    The Way a Wedding Should Be

    We cannot recommend the Inn on Peaks Island highly enough. We had our small wedding on New Year's Eve so made use of both the Bay View room and the attached heated/covered patio. Jayson and his team were meticulous in helping us think through every detail of the day. Jayson is in a tier of his own when it comes to service professionals. Over the 13 months, we were planning our wedding, he was responsive, kind, and resourceful. We had our families and wedding party stay in the Inn which has been beautifully renovated. We had a brunch wedding with an incredible spread: the food is delicious and thoughtfully prepared.

    This is not a venue that is trying to give you a cookie-cutter wedding - they offer everything that you could need, but also want to ensure that your vision comes to life. A few examples: a few weeks before the wedding we asked if we could add a stout to our beer list. The bar is stocked by Shipyard and they were not able to get any in for the wedding. Jayson generously offered to go out to the grocery store and buy us some Guinness to ensure we had a stout on the menu. He was there on the 6:45AM ferry the morning of our wedding to open the salon and ensure my wife and her bridesmaids had breakfast. Finally, we had a few gluten-free guests and asked if they could mark which food was gluten-free: Jayson proactively offered several gluten-free options including making their signature lobster rolls with lettuce wraps so all of our guests could enjoy some Maine lobster. My parents flew into town back in October and we showed up on Peaks Island unannounced. Jayson dropped everything and gave my parents a full tour of the Inn on Peaks - they told us it was the highlight of their trip.

    We researched so many venues along the Maine coast but as soon as we walked in the doors of the Inn on Peaks, we knew it was the place for us. If a one-stop-shop wedding venue on a quaint island with whole-hearted Maine hospitality is your cup of team, then book The Inn on Peaks.

    Amazing Wedding Location

    As anyone reading through reviews will quickly learn, you cannot talk about the Inn on Peaks without talking about Jayson and his team. From the first day we met him he was nothing short of a delight, and he truly orchestrates the perfect wedding weekend. He was an amazing partner in decision making (covid delays, vendor recs, etc.), provided seamless coordination with vendors, and made our whole Peaks experience wonderful. Even our tasting was incredible with him playing host!

    The venue is stunning, the grounds are impeccable, the food is superb, the bartenders made our guests laugh - there isn’t a single wedding element that the Inn on Peaks doesn’t completely hit out of the park. With that as a base, and Jayson running the show the Inn creates the ideal wedding for any couple.

    We can’t cover all the incredible effort and sublime care that Jayson and the team put into our weekend in this review but trust us, and the litany of other glowing reviews, that working with Jayson and the Inn on Peaks is a no brainer. You’re thinking, is he really that incredible? He really is. THANK YOU JAYSON!

The Inn on Peaks Island is one of our absolute favorite venues to work at. It's always such an experience! Our couples and their guests get to take the ferry over from Portland and the ride over is always filled with fun anticipation. Every room at the Inn is a dream to photograph in with large windows overlooking the bay and the lawn and tent are perfect spaces for a wedding. A quick walk across the street is the beach perfect for sunset portraits while the couples guests enjoy the sunset views from the deck of the Inn.

Elusive Photography Elusive Photography Wedding Photographers

The Inn on Peaks Island is one of the most popular venues for brides who contact me. Not only is the location beautiful with all of its waterfront property, but the grounds and the structures are incredible also. It's always easy to find lots of wonderful photo locations here, and I've never encountered a bride who was anything less than completely impressed at how the venue served their wedding hopes and dreams.
