“Grey Havens was a dream wedding venue. First of all, Georgetown is an amazing place to get married – it is absolutely beautiful and overall less touristy than a lot of other parts of the Maine coast. Everyone who came to the wedding loved exploring the area in between events. The location of the Inn, nestled in the woods right on the coast, provided a breathtaking back drop for the weekend. You have to rent the entire Inn to have the wedding there, and it was the best part of the weekend for us. The only people at the venue (besides the lovely staff) were guests at our wedding. People hung out at the Inn before and after the wedding sitting on the porch, walking down to the water, or chatting over a cup of coffee in the dining room. It was perfect!
The secret behind Grey Havens’ is Eve, the owner. She is absolutely the best and our wedding was a complete success because of her – she essentially acted as our de facto wedding planner. She was warm, helpful, efficient, and organized from the first time we met her through the day of the wedding. She was so detail oriented – there was nothing that she missed! Not only did we enjoy working with her, but our vendors did as well, and her recommendations of local resources were impeccable.
I absolutely loved Grey Havens – I couldn’t say enough about it. Everyone should be so lucky as to have their wedding at such a magical place!”
There is detail oriented and then there is Eve. Eve is one of those classy ladies who is not only polite and thoughtful to the nth degree, she doesn’t miss anything!!! Having our wedding at the Grey Havens was a decision I will never regret. Not only is the location stunning, the food is amazing, the wine never ending, but Eve and her husband Dick and their entire kitchen staff down to housekeeping are tip of the top in topnotch. The hardest part was not being able to find a thank you card big enough to thank Eve and crew for the million tiny details they kept track of in handling our party and making it truly the best weekend of my life! We will come back for years to come and sing their praises every time.
We celebrated our wedding at this venue in October this year. The location of this venue is absolutely breath taking and one of a kind. Planning a wedding can be very daunting and after visiting numerous locations we fell in love with this one. We loved that you can have the ceremony and reception in one place. Eve and Dick made everything very smooth and was very helpful and flexible with our requests. We did have 100 people in the tent which with a dance floor was a little tight but definitely do-able. We were even able to fit a band in!
Its nice having both the tent and the indoor space for your guests, there us a little bit of something for everybody. All our guests raved about the food and views! It was a little chilly on our day but the tent company was able to bring in a heater of the tent which made it much more comfortable.
The rooms at the inn are beautiful and waking up there was a dream! We booked a block of rooms in a hotel in Bath as the overflow hotel and it was very easy to rent transportation to and from the venue for our guests there.
I highly recommend this venue for your wedding if you are looking for stunning views in a more intimate feeling location that your guests will never forget!
We’re not from Maine, but we adore a good coastal view and warm hospitality. When I say I could not have picked a better venue than Grey Havens Inn to host my destination wedding, I say that with the upmost sincerity. The views from all angles of the Inn are breath-taking, the food from Blue restaurant is mouth-watering delicious and Eve and Dick are perhaps the most gracious and welcoming Innkeepers that you will ever meet. They treat you like family and make sure that everything goes according to plan; something every bride worries about, especially when you’ve been planning from afar!
We had friends and family that traveled to Maine from the east coast, west coast and midwest. It’s been 3 days since our wedding and not only are friends and family still raving on about how much of a good time they had, but they’re THANKING US for inviting them! I think that says a lot about the experience of spending time at Grey Havens Inn.
Thank you Eve and Dick for helping to give us memories we will cherish for years. I don’t think my wedding could have been anymore beautiful.A
We had the absolute best experience at Grey Havens! The owners were fantastic and provided us with over the top customer service. Always around to answer questions, Eve was just wonderful leading up to the big day and acted as a day-of coordinator to help with vendors and setup, going above and beyond to ensure everything was just right. We couldn’t be happier with our day, from the food to the views it was just phenomenal! Can’t wait to go back and celebrate an anniversary there!

Linda and David – Maine Wedding ReviewFrom the moment we walked onto the wrap-around porch at Grey Havens Inn and saw the view over Harmon’s Harbor, we knew we’d come across something really special. Grey Haven’s is a 13 bedroom Inn with a restaurant and bar, and beautiful grounds leading down to the water. You have to reserve all the bedrooms for your wedding weekend, which suited the size of our wedding party perfectly, and made the venue seem really intimate and personal. We had an outdoor ceremony, with cocktails on the porch and our reception under a tent in the gardens (custom made for the Inn by Marshalls), and the Innkeeper Eve and her staff couldn’t have been more helpful, both before the wedding and over the wedding weekend. Eve really is a master at her craft and incredibly customer service oriented – she was on first-name terms with our guests staying in the Inn by the time everyone left. She also has a spectacular wine list! Our guests loved Grey Havens as much as we did, and we will always treasure the memories of our fabulous wedding weekend.

Wedding-Dawn-Eric-July-2015Grey Havens Inn is a beautiful spot to have a wedding! We had our wedding reception at the Inn this summer and would highly recommend this venue. Eve and Dick, the Innkeepers, and staff were absolutely fantastic! Eve assisted with the planning process every step of the way and was always very organized and responsive. She was such a gracious host and greeted each guest as they arrived and showed them to their room. All of the staff was extremely friendly and professional.
The food was absolutely delicious and we were constantly receiving compliments on it throughout the evening. Unlike the traditional wedding, we chose to serve heavy hors d’oeuvre throughout the night, which was a hit with our guests. Since we were so busy taking photos and greeting guests, we missed many of the hors d’oeuvre. However, Eve made us both a beautiful plate and made sure we took a few minutes to enjoy the food. It was so thoughtful of her and greatly appreciated!
We chose to use a few of the vendors recommended on the Inn’s website including Premier Entertainment, Marshall Tent Rental, and Joanne Gilmartin – Mums Floral Design Atelier. We would highly recommend all of these vendors as well. The entertainment kept everyone happy and everyone loved the DJ (John). Marshall Tent Rental worked with Eve to finalize details to make sure everything was perfect for the wedding. Joanne did an outstanding job on the flowers and they exceeded my expectations!
Grey Havens Inn will always be a special place for us and we plan to go back frequently to visit, have dinner, and enjoy the view!

I can not say enough wonderful things about how perfectly our August 1st, 2015 wedding went off at the stunning Grey Havens Inn. It was truly amazing! We visited Grey Havens last fall and fell instantly in love with the incredible ocean view and with the gracious and accommodating innkeepers, Eve and Dick. They truly are the heart and soul of Grey Havens and I credit their professionalism, warmth, and experience with making our special day go as smoothly as it did.
Comments from guests said it all: “Amazing, beautiful wedding”, “Fabulous location and view”, “Awesome food”, and for those staying at the 13 room inn with us: “comfortable beds”, “great accommodations”, and “delicious breakfast and coffee”.
We loved working with Eve on our wedding reception menu. The food was truly outstanding (baked stuffed haddock is divine!) and our sincere thanks to the chef who created such fabulous choices for us to choose from in our buffet. Eve also has a tremendous wine list and worked with us on choosing beverages and signature cocktails for the cocktail hour on the spacious porch area prior to our reception.
An additional comfort to me was that Eve is so well connected to other wedding vendors in the region (Marshall tent rental, our DJ, etc) which just makes all the coordination and planning of the event that much easier.
Both the groom and I felt like we were part of the Grey Havens family all weekend–the entire staff is outstanding! This is truly a dream location for a wedding and is worth every penny (and frankly is a much better bargain when compared to other more southern Maine locations–compared to any place in the greater Portland area, Grey Havens is more affordable and impossible to beat for quality). Grey Havens provided a classy, friendly, fun, & breathtaking atmosphere for our day. We can’t wait to go back to celebrate our anniversary with dinner at their “Blue” restaurant and a stay at the inn!
