An amazing experience

“My husband and I were married at The Masthead in October 2021 and the experience was wonderful. The day of the wedding was incredible, and went off without a hitch. The staff was anticipatory and responsive, and the venue was beautiful. John (owner) and Andrea (Business Ops Manager) along with David (on-site handy man guru) and many others made the planning process easy and enjoyable.”

A simply remarkable location

“This was an incredible venue for our wedding – we unequivocally recommend it, particularly for those looking for an outdoor, relaxed vibe. We also recommend having some/all of your guests stay before and after the ceremony (book early for summer months) or at least book a cottage for the day/night of.”

Everything was wonderful and our guests loved it.

“We held our wedding at the Masthead. The staff was very friendly and helpful. All of our guests stayed at the Masthead and our reception was on the pier. John helped us coordinate rentals. Everything was wonderful and our guests loved it. We liked that we could walk to Ptown yet were out of the busy district. Great location; great people! We highly recommend the Masthead!”
