From 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.

Grey 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!
If you are looking to create a personalized wedding in a beautiful, intimate setting on the coast of Maine, Grey Havens Inn is the place! Innkeepers, Eve and Dick, are impeccable hosts, caring about your day like it is their own and working with you every step of the way to make sure it is exactly how you envision it. No “cookie cutter” wedding venue here. This is what you are getting-arguably the most spectacular ocean view and spot on the coast; a delicious, locally inspired menu of your choice by Chef Esau; and an upscale, classically rustic inn exclusively accommodating your families and friends for an amazing wedding weekend filled with laughter, love and the best Maine has to offer. We will forever cherish our first memories as a newly married couple looking out our Sunrise suite window at the picture perfect full Harvest moon shining it’s light over the magnificent Atlantic ocean as we munched on wedding left-overs and wine. We return every year to the Inn to visit, and each time we feel the same…at home.
When we first visited in January, it was the view at Grey Havens Inn that really blew us away. After visiting dozens of potential wedding venues throughout Maine’s MidCoast Region (so many gorgeous spots to choose from!) – Grey Havens Inn really stuck-out in our minds as a special location. This thirteen-room Inn sits high on top of a large bluff, overlooking the harbor. The wrap-around porch is a wonderful spot to take-in the spectacular setting. Since the location in Maine was going to be a destination wedding for almost all of our family & friends, we really wanted to make the trip extra special for our guests – and we knew the sight of Grey Havens would do just that. The Inn is a historical landmark, built in 1904. The current Innkeepers, Eve & Dick, have done an absolutely beautiful job of restoring & renovating all of the rooms. The property, large outdoor porch, common areas (sitting room & check-in) & dining room are all gorgeously maintained & decorated perfectly to match the idylic setting. The restaurant, Blue, is very good as well.
Eve made the wedding planning process a real breeze. She helped to refer us to many vendors in the Georgetown area. On the day of our wedding, she, Dick & all of their staff were such a pleasure to work with. Not only were they so professional & organized, but they made it appear as if all of their efforts were simple to accomplish (and weddings are definitely anything but simple!). Our wedding took place on October 12, 2013. The ceremony was held outside in open-air, overlooking the harbor. We had 80 guests. Cocktail hour was held on the wrap-around porch and inside the main floor of the Inn (the sitting area & dining room/bar were plenty large to accommodate people who felt a bit cold being outside). The dinner & reception took place inside a large tent. The food was delicious! Guests were able to move from the tent, to the lawn, to the porch or inside – creating a relaxed environment for all.
