We had SUCH a great experience with the Rod n Reel resort team for our wedding. Sarah as well as the rest of the catering team made absolutely everything perfect for us. Sarah kept us up to date the entire way leading up to the wedding with all of the Covid changes, and was so helpful working with us when we had to reschedule and downsize. I honestly could not recommend them enough, the venue was beautiful and the team was awesome.Sent on 11/02/2020

I had my wedding 10 minutes away at a different venue, Herrington on the Bay, but I had a room block for my guests here at this resort. Renee was extremely friendly, responsive and helpful and my guests were able to easily call to book within the block. This hotel was clean, beautiful and let me put up a welcome sign and welcome bags at the front desk for my guests!Sent on 09/19/2018

We could not have been more pleased with finding Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa for our wedding venue. Lori was so helpful throughout the planning process. The venue was beautiful, and the food was all very good! Lori was very responsive to emails, helped us find great vendors, and served as our coordinator for both the rehearsal and the wedding. The salon was also great! Very convenient that it was on site and the staff did a great job with my (and my bridal party) hair and make-up. The entire wedding day went smoothly thanks to Lori and the rest of the CBRS staff! I highly recommend Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa.Sent on 08/15/2017

My wedding weekend could not have been more perfect. Our out of town guests were able to listen to the live music on the beach Friday night! They used the slot machines and we even had our rehearsal dinner at the Rod n Reel restaurant. The dinner food was amazing! The ceremony and reception were 5 star. Thanks to Cheyenne Armstrong, our wedding went very smoothly. She even did such a beautiful job setting up my centerpieces! I was so relaxed all thanks to her! Highly recommend this venue and Cheyenne!!Sent on 09/05/2016

The venue is the most breath taking venue I ever saw. We just had my daughters wedding there this past weekend 6-8-2013 an it was just an amazing place for an outside ceremony. The view is to die for. The reception was amzing as well. The food was the best food I have ever had at wedding and my guests agree.Sent on 06/11/2013

The Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa was an absolutely beautiful place to get married, and we had the wedding of our dreams! We got married this past weekend (8/6/16) on the beach location and it was so gorgeous. Our coordinator, Sara, worked with us to make sure everything we imagined was made a reality. Even more, she led our rehearsal and was there every step of the way with us on the day of. I was very impressed that she kept us on schedule while still keeping myself and my bridal party happy, from helping with set up to bringing us drinks right after the ceremony before pictures to coordinating plans with all of our vendors. We received so many compliments about the beautiful location and delicious food from our guests! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day, and I'm so glad I chose to get married at CBRS! :)Sent on 08/08/2016

My husband and I had our reception at the Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa and we are so thrilled that we did! The wedding coordinator, Lori, was awesome to work with and very professional. Whenever my mom and I needed to stop by for last minute details, she was always very accommodating and helpful. The venue was beautiful and Lori made my vision come true. I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue, it is absolutely breathtaking and your wedding photos will turn out perfect!Sent on 07/11/2016

Wow, where do I even begin? This venue was incredible. Lori was our wedding planner and was amazing throughout the wedding process. She was extremely flexible and easily reached for any questions or planning inquiries. The planning process was extremely organized to make it an ease for us to decide exactly what we wanted, from food selection down to the color of napkins and placement of tables. Lori ensured that the venue was set up exactly as we envisioned and managed the reception all the way until the bride and groom send off to ensure that everything was perfect. We chose steak and crab cakes for dinner and they were phenomenal. People are still talking about how good the food was! The steak was cooked perfectly and the crab cake was superb. Lori communicated with all vendors so that the actual wedding day was seamless with absolutely no effort from my husband and I. The venue itself was gorgeous. We were married in December but still got to enjoy being on the water with the large windows in the reception room. The docks provided the perfect setting for stunning pictures and the hotel provided the perfect place for guests to stay after the reception. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking!Sent on 12/20/2015

Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa was amazing! We recently were married here and the staff, food, atmosphere, everything was perfect! We seriously couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!Sent on 11/17/2015
Lori was our coordinator. She did an amazing job at organizing and ensuring everything was being set up properly and the day was running smoothly. She dealt with my crazy family and now crazy husband too! ... he was a bit of a "Groomzilla". Regardless she made everything work out.
Chef Joe was the chef for the night and we have received so many compliments on the food! Everything was great and prepared perfectly.. even for me the picky eater!
So glad we chose Chesapeake Beach Resort to host our big day! Everything was perfect!

Spectacular! My daughter's wedding took place on September 6, 2015 at Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa. Our Wedding Planner, Sara was delightful to work with. Sara, was always available to address our questions or concerns. The venue - beautiful, food - delicious and hotel - clean, relaxing and meet all of our expectations.Sent on 09/18/2015
The ballroom was decorated beautifully and met all of our requests. The food spectacular - our guests are still talking about the venue and food - and that they would like to have or had their children's wedding at this resort.
Again, hats off to Sara and her team and to Chef Rudy for the delicious food!

We had our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception at the Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa. We really enjoyed the convenience of having everything in one spot- including the hotel! We had our rehearsal dinner in the Rod n Reel restaurant, the food was great and they had cute menus that matched our wedding theme for the dinner. We did not feel rushed and had the chef come up to us to make sure everything was going well. Lori was our wedding coordinator and she was fabulous! Very helpful and was quick to respond to all of my questions. She set up the reception beautifully and was there to help coordinate rehearsal as well. She kept things on track for the ceremony and timeline for the reception. I did not feel nickel and dimed by this venue, they really try to help to provide the best they can even with varying budgets. The scenery is very pretty, we got married under the wedding dome and our pictures are absolutely gorgeous with the water behind us. Our reception was in the Chesapeake Ballroom with huge windows that over look the water making for a really pretty setting for dinner. The food was SO GOOD. We did the buffet which included many options for our guests and they were able to serve themselves how little or much they wanted. I'm so glad my groom and I took the time to sit and enjoy the delicious food we had chosen! After the reception we moved to the outdoor bar at the Boardwalk Cafe and continued to celebrate! The only downside is if you want a very private ceremony as it is a public spot so individuals on their boats or at the restaurants on property can watch what is happening but that was not an issue for us, it was fun to have so many people congratulate you and everyone was very respectful and quiet during our ceremony. I'm so glad we chose this spot for our wedding and it will always be a special place we can continue to visit.Sent on 10/11/2015

This was a perfect venue for my wife and I! The staff was great and the outdoor beach area for the ceremony was amazing! We received so many comments about how great the food was too! It's a great venue especially if you don't want to relocate for the reception because you can have both at the resort.Sent on 08/31/2015

My husband and I looked at a LOT of water-front venues along the Chesapeake Bay and surrounding areas when searching for a venue. Sara agreed to meet with us on a last-minute trip to the area. I was the type of bride-to-be who traveled to vendor meetings with a binder and two pages typed of custom questions for each stop. I had a very specific vision, and we wanted a venue where guests did not have to travel between ceremony and reception and could stay overnight if so desired. For a water-front venue with the "all-inclusive" feel that CBRS offers, we thought their pricing was very reasonable compared to others in the area. We booked our wedding at their annual bridal show to take advantage of the perks they offer for booking that day.Sent on 12/18/2015
Throughout the planning process, I had a million questions about every detail, to the point where I knew I had already asked the same question, but couldn't find the answer in my emails! Sara was so patient and more responsive than I ever could have expected. We had our ceremony on the deck, cocktail hour at the Boardwalk Cafe, and reception in the Chesapeake Ballroom (downstairs). We had a lot of last-minute changes to table configuration, guest count, and even members of our bridal party. Sara and her team just rolled with anything I threw at them and didn't blink an eye.
The surrounding towns offer plenty to do - the Friday before our wedding, I went to a vineyard for wine tasting and my husband went golfing - CBRS offered all of the opportunities of a "destination wedding", just an hour from home. By the time our wedding day arrived, I got up in the morning and went to the yoga class out on the beach before getting ready with my bridesmaids in the our suite - execution just went so smoothly day-of. For me, a super detail-obsessed bride (with no wedding planner or outside day-of coordinator), to be able to trust that Sara and her team would pull it off was pretty amazing!! We couldn't have asked for more!

Lori our wedding coordinator was AMAZING! Despite many challenges with the weather and other vendors she was a consummate professional and made our day so special. The food was out of this world, our families have not stopped raving about the crabcakes and the size of the cocktail shrimp. The hotel accommodations were very nice and our complimentary room for our wedding night was waiting with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries! So wonderful! The beach wedding venue is so picturesque and provides a great atmosphere for dinner and dancing under the stars.Sent on 10/25/2015

Scott and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lori and the staff / accommodations at Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa. Our wedding was everything we had envisioned. Lori worked with us without hesitation throughout the entire planning of the wedding, and on the wedding day we could not have asked for a more competent and professional support person. And, there could never be a more joyful person than Nancy, who tended bar for us and provided incredible personal attention to each and every guest. Our family and friends are still talking about the wedding. "Best wedding food I've ever tasted" was one family member's comment! We're considering renewing our vows here next year!Sent on 06/03/2015
