My husband and I were married in June 2018 and I couldn’t have been happier with the Union Bluff Meeting House and Staff. Amy and her team were like a well oiled machine. I didn’t have to worry about a thing and everything ran so smoothly. She was very responsive to our questions throughout the process and was extremely helpful. The location is so beautiful overlooking the water and the food was also great. I highly recommend the Union Bluff Meeting House for anyone looking to get married in the York area.Sent on 07/07/2018

Amazing weekend had by all!
Union Bluff was absolutely amazing in helping us plan and execute our dream wedding. From our first meeting with Amy, she was so professional and answered all the questions we had, honestly. I never felt like we were being pushed upsell items & they truly helped us navigate how to plan a wedding. Amy is always available through email, quickly responding to even the silliest questions I had. They were upfront about their costs & were very affordable - we did get married in the off season which helped this part. The wedding weekend was unreal. The attentiveness of Amy and her staff was something I had never seen before. Whatever we needed, we had it immediately keeping everyone’s nerves at ease. Amy made sure the flow of the night went smoothly for us and our guests. Always checking in on us & making sure we were doing okay throughout the night. The meetinghouse is a gorgeous venue & having the rooms above the ballroom was awesome. We had our own building & were able to hang with friends and family without worrying about disturbing the rest of the hotel. All of our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was and what a great stay they had in the hotel. When I say Amy & Union Bluff are top notch, that’s even an understatement. We could not have asked for a better wedding weekend & we owe so much to Amy for that!! 5+ stars!!Sent on 04/28/2019

The Union Bluff is an outstanding location for a wedding, but location is only part of what happens that day or weekend, It's the staff involved in treating the guests from check-in to check -out and they were outstanding. Our wedding coordinator Amy was such an asset to the bride and groom from day one, She has the ability to handle all situation and "oh" keep the parents under control.Sent on 11/05/2018
We've been working alongside Darlene and her staff at the Union Bluff Meeting House for the past two years now, and things run so smoothly here. Darlene and her staff are extremely helpful. The beach-views from their property are excellent. It's an all-around unforgettable experience. A perfect venue for your wedding.
