When you rent House Island, it is your island.
With an incomparable blend of stunning beauty, ease of access and complete privacy, safety and security, House Island is the perfect venue for producing bespoke waterfront / beach weddings and unique experiences for you and your guests.
Transform the island into exactly the atmosphere, design and style of wedding you want.
Create lasting memories when celebrating with family and friends.
We have the ideal location for your destination wedding: a private island in the middle of Casco Bay in Portland, Maine with unobstructed wraparound vistas of the Calendar Islands and the City of Portland. Legendary sunrises and stunning sunsets included.
You may choose from multiple waterfront and beach wedding venues. Each option is beyond spectacular.
For a truly romantic break, celebrate your wedding on House Island, then honeymoon here too. And for those interested, you can rent the entire island for your wedding festivities.
“Our wedding was picture perfect. My husband and I had originally planned to get married at a different venue, and when our venue fell through a month before the wedding we were scrambling to find an alternate.
The House Island team came to the rescue, allowing us to take over the island and prepare for the wedding on a months’ notice. They gave us complete freedom to have the wedding of our dreams. Guests are still to this day (a year and a half later!) raving about how beautiful the island and our wedding was.
I will never forget our first look in the historic forts, our sunset ceremony overlooking the water in front of Cappy’s Lodge with schooners going by (and cheering for us!), or dancing under the stars into the wee hours of the morning. We feel so lucky that our other venue fell through — we could not have imagined a more perfect location for our wedding.”
