We could not be more pleased to announce that we have just received WeddingWire’s 2017 Couples Choice Award. The award is given to the top 5% of wedding professionals on WeddingWire. The awards are based on reviews received from the wonderful couples who got married here last year.

Last year we helped 16 couples celebrate their marriages and begin a new life. It is always such an honor and privileged to be part of such a special day. We helped local couples as well as several who did not live nearby. Maine is truly becoming a wedding destination. We please to make that a reality for couples.

We really thank all the people who took the time to post such nice comments. Here is a sample:

“The Alamoosook Lakeside Inn was the perfect spot for my wedding. Gina the owner was so incredibly helpful with the entire planning process from the initial stages all the way to the big day itself. All of the food was made onsite and we got tons of compliments on all the appetizers and the dinner.” Emi (9/10/16)

“The prices were reasonable for the quality of all we received. I highly recommend this venue to couples that are looking for a real Maine wedding, in a relaxed comfortable and picturesque environment that is set up with an elegant twist. Our ceremony was outside with an indoor reception, with 140 in attendance. There was not a single hitch.” Sarah (9/3/16)

“The weekend was beyond everything we had hoped for. All of the meals were delicious and our guests raved about the food. Gina and her staff were welcoming and accommodating. We felt very comfortable and found Gina to be flexible, gracious, and determined to make our wedding exactly what we wanted it to be. The location is perfect for a Maine wedding – private and beautiful. We enjoyed the private beach, use of kayaks and canoes, watching the full moon rise and listening to the call of the loons.” Sharon (8/20/16)

We can’t wait to start the 2017 wedding season!

I can't recommend Alamoosook Lakeside Inn highly enough. Gina, the owner, and her staff are professional, flexible, and go out of their way to make an event memorable for everyone involved. The pricing was also very reasonable, a much better value than any other venue we considered. My wife and I got married at Alamoosook, and Gina was willing to work with us to customize the experience from start to finish. The venue is gorgeous, and the weather was perfect for our outdoor ceremony by the lake. Every guest we've spoken with has raved about the venue and the service. If you're looking for a beautiful, unique spot in Maine for your wedding, look no further.

We could not be more excited and grateful to have received the 2016 WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award.  Last year was amazing.  We helped 21 couples celebrate the beginning of their new lives.  We have received so many wonderful reviews.

It is such a privilege to help couples with their weddings.  We are always surprised by the creativity and personal touches that each couple brings to their day.  No two weddings are ever alike.  Since we only do one wedding each day, we can really help folks realize their vision for the day.

Our amazing couples posted such touching comments.  Here is a sample:

"All of our guests were blown away by the location, and everyone had something great to say about the appetizers and meals! It was so special to be able to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony followed by a delicious dinner and a fun reception all in one location."  - Norah (June 2015)

"We held our wedding at the Inn and it was simply perfect! I feel like we are still waking up from a dream. The location is spectacular (the lake makes for a gorgeous backdrop, the grounds are beautiful and the Inn is simply charming); the food is outstanding."  Lori (May 2015)

"Sometimes it feels like people in the wedding business are just putting on a show trying to please you. But Gina and her staff seemed genuine. She wasn't over the top about anything, which is how you can tell it is real."  Casey (September 15)

We thank everyone for taking the time to write such wonderful comments.  Everyone here at the Inn is really looking forward to making 2016 an even better year!

Spring has been such a busy time for babies. Sally and Ray were visiting and she was able to capture the robin who nested right by our front door as well as the snapping turtles who nested by the lakeshore. Thanks so much for sharing the photos!

So the snow started around 5:30 AM. Now at 8 the wind is blowing and you can't see but a few feet. We are safe and warm inside with a big fire roaring. Hope everyone in the storm can stay inside and safe.

A great Christmas Idea to support Maine wildlife

The 2015 Maine Birder Band is now available! Maine’s Birder band is instrumental in helping protect birds, conserve habitat and provide access for birders throughout the state. Get yours at the IFW Online Store

For just $20, you get an authentic bird band similar to ones that biologists use to band wild turkeys and Canada geese. The band is meant to fit on a camera or binocular strap and has a unique number registered in your name. If this item becomes lost, the finder can call the IFW number on the band and the item can be returned to the owner. Over the years, this band has returned several pairs of binoculars and a set of car keys.

And new this year, with the purchase of your birder band, you’ll receive some valuable added extras including a day pass to the Maine Wildlife Park (www.mainewildlifepark.com) in Gray, and a day pass to Swan Island (www.maine.gov/swanisland) in Richmond.

Birder bands make great gifts! If you are looking to purchase one for someone else, please contact us at 287-8000, and we can take your order over the phone and ship it direct to you, or direct to the recipient of the gift.

We just had to share the great WeddingWire review we just received. 
I'm so please that Tabatha and Josh were happy with the Inn.

5.0 out of 5.0 

We are currently stationed in Arizona, which meant I had to plan a long distance wedding/reception. I got engaged on Christmas and had thought to call at the beginning of January, just get some ideas of dates. When I called, I learned that only 2 Saturdays were left in October..I called my husband and asked how he felt about 11 Oct! He was surprised to have a date so fast, but I knew after being there one time, that this was the perfect, most intimate place, for my fall wedding. Gina was amazing! I had a ton of questions and she always responded very quickly! She worked hard to ensure I was comfortable with everything. And since I was long distance, I had no idea of vendors. She gave me a list of people she had worked with and recommended. I ended up using all of the people she had told me about! This made it much easier for me to not have to make a million phone calls. Let me just say, I could not have been happier with my wedding/reception. It was absolutely everything I had dreamed about. Gina and her staff took the time to ensure everything was taken care of. She had no issues at all, when I requested an appetizer plate to be brought out to us while we were taking formal pictures! Food was a huge deal for me! I wanted to be able to have it easy, and be able to have everyone have multiple options to choose from! I couldn't imagine trying to get everyone to pick a plate, since I could barely get RSVP's back. Lol. So we went with the ultimate feast buffet! It was phenomenal! Absolutely loved the chicken picatta!!! But everything was delicious! We ended up renting all the rooms out so we could enjoy the inn all night! I was very glad that we did! It made for a wonderful way to spend time with the wedding party afterwards, plus we all got together with my family for the wonderful breakfast in the morning! I would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding/reception at the alamoosook lakeside inn! I look forward to going back for our anniversary!!!
