Josh & Louisa
We were married in August 2022 at Grey Havens and could not have been happier with our wedding and the entire planning experience. Ali was incredibly attentive and collaborative while putting together our dream wedding and worked with us to plan a unique menu and decorations for both our rehearsal dinner at Blue and wedding reception on the lawn. The setting of Grey Havens is breathtaking and the entire team did an amazing job at making our entire wedding weekend exactly as we imagined. We have received so many compliments from our families and friends on our choice of Grey Havens and the great work of Ali, Carlos, and the whole team. The food for both events was delicious and Ali and Chef Esau were incredibly helpful accommodating some dietary restrictions. We can’t wait to return to the Inn!

I cant recommend Grey Havens Inn enough! Ali and Carlos and their team are all amazing! Ali was so communicative through the whole process. The food, drink, rooms were all perfect. The weekend was amazing! Grey Havens Inn is a wedding venue hidden gem. I cherish our memories from our weekend there and our pictures came out so amazing because the view of the bay at the inn is absolutely spectacular! You will not regret choosing Grey Havens Inn and their great team :).
Laura & Colin
Would highly recommend Grey Havens. We got married June 2022 at Grey Havens. Ali was fantastic to work with, extremely responsive and easy to communicate with. Beautiful location and venue. Food was delicious and great drinks as well. Thank you Grey Havens for a wonderful wedding weekend!
We had the most magical wedding at Grey Havens in August 2021. The innkeeper and her family were the most incredible hosts, wedding planners, and more! They made our entire weekend better than we ever could have hoped. The inn is located right on the water, in the most beautiful setting. It is right by Reid State Park, where we took pre-wedding photos, and is easily accessible from Portland. The communication with the inn, how responsive and accommodating they were, how delicious the food was, and the care they took to make the weekend perfect were all more than we could have hoped. This is the perfect setting for your closest friends and family to stay for the weekend, to get ready, and for a beautiful ceremony and reception! The perfect way to end the night is also marveling at the bioluminescence and swimming in the ocean. We cannot recommend this venue more!
My husband and I had the most phenomenal experience having our wedding at Grey Havens Inn in Georgetown, Maine on September 28, 2019. Not only was Grey Havens Inn completely open and flexible to our ideas, they also let us transform areas of the property to create visual experiences for our press and media coverage. We worked very closely with the Inn owners on each and every step of the planning which took about one year. Every decision was handled with enthusiasm, care and the utmost attention to detail. Most importantly, we build 100% trust with the owners at Grey Havens Inn which is crucial with planning this degree of an affair and the business relationship formed. We are truly thankful for everything that Grey Havens Inn provided!

Grey Havens was the perfect venue for our wedding on August 3, 2019! Eve and Dick were wonderful hosts and looked after all of our needs throughout the weekend. They also gave us many great tips on local vendors. Chef Esau Crosby created a sensational menu and the wine list is exceptional. All of our guests were absolutely delighted with their experience and many said it was the best wedding they ever attended. The porch and ocean views were everything and more than we expected! We can’t wait to go back for our anniversary next summer. Thank you again Eve and Dick for making Kimberly’s dream Maine wedding come true!

The innkeepers Eve and Dick are so very friendly and welcoming. They treat you and your guests like rockstars but they are the true rockstars! Never stopping and so very helpful Eve is a whirlwind of Creative energy! Dick is the strong silent partner behind the scenes…. but with a great sense of humor and years of experience behind them both. Their professionalism and clash shine through to make our wedding an occasion that we and our guests will never forget!

The Inn is located at a beautiful bay with an ocean facing lawn. We fell in love with the location once we saw the view. For our small wedding with 20 guests it was just perfect. The Inn is quintessential Maine. Most of the rooms are ocean facing and have an amazing view into the bay. Eve and Dick, the Inn Keepers, are lovely. Together with their staff they made our wedding a perfect experience. The food was outstanding. We had appetizers during cocktail hour, and dinner at the Blue Restaurant, and it was delicious. We highly recommend Grey Havens Inn as a perfect wedding location.

If you’re looking to have an all-inclusive wedding weekend at a gorgeous place, Grey Haven’s is for you. I fell in love with the spot, and the idea that is fosters this sense of relaxation and time with others. The ability to host your closest friends and family in the Inn and really share the weekend with them is totally unique and amazing. As others have noted, Eve’s dedication to your needs, prompt and supportive communication, and persistence in making everything happen means you can worry a lot less which is so important. We had a lot of moving pieces and planning across family members and she handled it with grace. She was also super helpful as none of us had been involved in any wedding planning before. The staff almost came to feel like family. The food, much to my delight, was amazing and they accommodated us for two rounds of appetizers, a sit down dinner and a buffet within two days. Overall, I felt like I got married at a longtime family home instead of a venue which made all the difference. I can’t thank Grey Havens and recommend them enough! I can’t wait to return to visit.

AMAZING in every aspect. I just had my wedding at Grey Havens Inn and I would highly recommend this venue! The very first visit I had at Grey Havens Inn when I was considering different venues was all I needed to be sold on the spot. The view is beautiful and Eve instantly made me feel special. I knew I would be taken care of and that I could plan a wedding without the stress. Eve was on top of things from day one! The food was perfect. We had our rehearsal dinner at Grey Havens Inn the night before and the chefs did such a great job. I had special dietary needs in my wedding party and they went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy! I couldn’t image a more magical wedding venue!

I cannot say enough about our wedding weekend at Grey Havens. First, there was the history of the place for me. I was lucky enough to grow up a few miles down the road, and my parents actually had their rehearsal dinner there, so it already had a lot of meaning. Second, the venue is quintessential “Downeast” Maine — packed with historic charm and a million dollar view — and the innkeepers, Eve and Dick Roesler, did everything they could to make our weekend as special as possible. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect weekend.
Eve is amazing to work with — she’s so FUN, flexible and warm. She also knows food and wine like no other– so you’re getting an innkeeper, a food/wine expert, and a planner all in one with Eve. The setting and set up is so beautiful, too, that the venue stands on its own. We brought a few lanterns in and decorated with flowers, but aside from that, you can’t really improve on the environment. Also, a big shout out to Esau Crosby, the chef, who did an entire evening of heavy apps for us and was really involved in planning for our big day with Eve. He’s incredible at what he does.
Every single one of our guests commented on how beautiful and amazing the day/weekend was, particularly those who stayed with us on the grounds. In fact, several friends in our wedding party have been back since to spend special weekends or nights there they loved it so much!
One of the things that is so special about getting married at Grey Havens, is that you have a place to return to celebrate in the future. While we now live out west, my husband, John, and I try to visit Grey Havens for dinner (at least) once a year and relive our day. The magic stays the same. And we look forward to catching up with Eve, Dick and Esau each time. If you are deliberating on a place to get married, just do yourselves a favor and pick Grey Havens. It is simply the best. Thank you Eve, Dick and Esau for making our experience better than we could have imagined!

Genuinely, the Grey Havens Inn created a perfect experience for our wedding. Eve was essentially our wedding planner – she made us feel some comfortable and settled knowing that she had every single detail planned out in her mind. The views are incredible, the rooms are classic and beautiful, Eve and Dick are perfect hosts, and everyone at the Inn was 100% focused on giving us the best possible weekend. I can give a few examples of how accommodating Grey Havens is for the bride and groom – the night before the wedding we had the entire Inn to ourselves to celebrate and enjoy the summer air; the day of the wedding Eve found the most sunlit spot for makeup and hair; after the wedding the head chef took some leftovers to make us late night snacks – everything at the Grey Havens Inn is driven by the vision of the married couple having the best possible experience. We could not have imagined anything better!!
Diane & Monique
“We felt so warmly embraced by our community and the people who provided services for our celebration.” As Diane and Monique recall, a conversation one quiet Saturday afternoon at home yielded a spontaneous proposal. They both agree: “It was perfect.” Following their legal marriage in New York, their friends and family came together for a weekend-long celebration at Grey Havens Inn in Georgetown. The couple felt incredibly supported by the staff at the Inn and those they collaborated with to create their beautiful wedding. Although the threat of rain pushed the wedding ceremony indoors, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise—they loved the cozy interior setting. One of the most precious and memorable moments came when they accidentally ran into each other in the hallway just minutes before the ceremony. And when Diane performed Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” with her nieces during the reception, the entire wedding party burst into applause and insisted on an encore.
