So, without further ado, here’s two more amazing venues for part 3 in our 3 part series on Coastal Wedding Venues near Boston!

The ViewPoint, York, ME

Our first stop this week is The ViewPoint, located just a stone’s throw from the ocean in York Maine, which happens to be just over a 1 hour drive from Boston, MA!  The ViewPoint is a gorgeous boutique hotel property, with a gorgeous 45′ x 85′ sailcloth reception tent on site! The tend also boasts charming wood grain poles, as well as other elegant nautical elements, and is capable of hosting groups of up to 150 guests. The tent rental also comes with a large separate catering tent w/ power and lighting, exclusive use of the entire property on Saturday ensuring privacy for you and your guests. Your rental also includes Studio use on Saturday with complimentary champagne, so you and your bridal party can get ready in style! 

And, as for accommodations for your guests and out of town visitors, The ViewPoint has plenty of rooms and suites available on site, as well as additional accommodations at their nearby Sister Properties (228 Nubble, Stones Throw and The Nevada). You and your closest friends and family will stay and enjoy some of the best views that coastal Maine has to offer!

Imagine exchanging your vows with beautiful views of the Nubble Lighthouse & crashing waves as the soundtrack for the most important day of your lives! As a note, receptions have an end time of 9:30pm to comply with community noise restrictions, but there are plenty of options for hosting an after party, if you prefer to dance the night away!

The Colony Hotel, Kennebunkport, ME

Our next stop on our tour of coastal wedding venues is The Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport Maine, which is just a quick one and a half hour drive from Boston proper! And, if history and getting married in a historic venue is important to you, The Colony Hotel might fit the bill! For starters, the current hotel was designed and opened in 1914, and is considered one of the Historic Hotels of America, by the National Trust For Historic Preservation. When the hotel opened, the room and meals rate was only $5.-10. per day, depending on your preferred view and whether or not you wanted a private bath. 

So… you could say that times have changed a little from the Hotel’s inaugural season!​

The Hotel overlooks the rugged Atlantic Ocean, the Kennebunk River as well as its own private beach, and is a picturesque getaway with 110 guest rooms that is more than capable of hosting weddings of up to 200 guests! So, there’s no need to keep your guest list short! The guest accommodations are housed in five separate buildings on site, which will give your guests an opportunity to spread out. Also, each building boasts its own distinctive style, and every room/suite comes with either an ocean, river, or garden view, so you and your guests will have plenty of choice when picking their accommodations. The hotel is also pet friendly if you or your guests are planning to bring their furry little friends! 

This concludes our tour around Coastal Wedding Venues Near Boston! We hope you’ve enjoyed discovering some charming coastal venues, all within a 2 hour drive from Boston! If you haven’t yet enjoyed Part 1 and Part 2 in this series, I encourage you to do that now!
