Welcome to The Edgewater House!

Imagine a warm summer evening at a waterfront venue with giant green trees stretching to the sky, illuminated by soft tea lights that string the gables of The Edgewater House.  Imagine walking underneath the heavens, down an aisle of fresh green grass,  surrounded by the ones you love.  As the calming sea shuffles down the shoreline of Colvos Passage, imagine sharing your first kiss as husband and wife in this delightfully secluded setting.  From the bold rock that frames the long windows overlooking the enchanting vista, to the salt that fragrances the air and the soft sand that warms your toes, this secluded nook is nothing short of magical! Come experience it for yourself.

We had our wedding here in June 2017, and it was perfect! After finding the venue online, my fiance contacted them and secured a date, and we started planning. We live in Texas, but they were very accommodating and helped us plan almost everything over email and the phone. After putting down an initial deposit, they assigned Johanna to help us with coordinating everything, and she did an exceptional job. I was able to visit the location a few months before the wedding, and she showed me around the venue, and talked through everything. She helped provide us with an example timeline, answer questions about all the details, gave us a list of vendors they had used before, and helped answer all my questions. Close to the wedding, she helped wrangle in all the vendors that we had in our team. On the day of the wedding, everything went seamless, and it was a great event. We received numerous compliments from our guests on the venue. The wedding team we assembled was: Officiant: Lonnie Anderson Cake: Celebrity Cake Studio Photographer: Flourish Photography by Bree Sound: Raines Media

This was a beautiful location. I booked the venue and signed the contract without my fiancé. I was told we could bring in our own catering and was given a quote. I sent my save the dates and paid the deposit. A couple months later I went to meet with the event planner (Who was an hr late) and received a bill that was twice the price of the original quote. It turned out I was mislead about the catering and you have to use their in house catering. After discussing how upset I was for being mislead, the vendor refused to refund my $2500 deposit. I would recommend going over every detail and price before signing.

This place misrepresents itself and everything you get for the price. Was very surprised to get a bill for 4 times what we discussed. We cancelled and felt very taken advantage of. Make sure you read the contract very thoroughly and do not expect what they say they will deliver. Very disappointed in this place

Johanna did an exceptional job working with my daughter and son-in-law for a memorable day. Marilyn was exceptionally gracious. The location was ideal, and the staff attention to detail great. Our guests had a truly wonderful time and the Edgewater is perfect for intimacy and charm. The only detail I would fix, if to do it over, was to arrange for more bar staff. The serving was too slow. Food was very good and the pace of the afternoon and evening perfect. The bridal party spent the night in the cottages and that added to the overall experience and celebration. Highly, highly recommend the Edgewater House.

Our wedding at The Edgewater House was beautiful- the venue itself is amazing, and our day went off fabulously. Our guests were amazed at the locale, and the venue was spotless. Food was wonderful! We payed additional to use the venues event planning and floral services- this was our mistake. Johanna, the venues coordinator, whom we upgraded to a wedding planner by spending an additional $1000, and an additional $1,300 for floral services was honestly a little difficult to work with. Johanna has a great grasp on the "pretty things", but she truly lacks the ability to conduct concise detailed communication- there were 2 instances within 1 week of the wedding she "forgot to tell us about", both of which involved charges for over $1,000 (the Edgewater House did pay for a portion of one of those mistakes). There were also several items the day of that she simply did not do that we requested, and she agreed to take care of- my officiant did not have a microphone, the children's gifts were not put out, and the alcohol was delivered to her, but she signed without taking inventory, so our wedding had no red wine, nor do it have the ingredients necessary for our signature cocktails (they were dedicated to passed loved ones..this missing hurt our heart quite a bit!). As I said, beautiful venue, but there were certainly some mistakes that cannot be forgiven, that was disappointing. The venue is beautiful, but they do have some work to do with standard practices...it's a family owned venue, and is ran like one.

Hi Brides and Grooms, If you are still seeking for a waterfront beach wedding, The Edgewater House is going to be perfect. If your needs are romantic or you are having a large or small wedding, this is the perfect venue. We had our wedding here at this beautiful location. Everyone had so much fun and are still talking about it. I really wanted my family and friends to have the time of their lives as well. There was no awkward people just standing around. That was one of my biggest fears. But until I found The Edgewater House, I know that this place would deal with all my worries. And it totally did. The day of the wedding. May gosh, when I showed up the tables and all the table settings were already being done and not by my family nor friends. Thanks to the amazing wedding planner that the venue offers, it was almost all done. I nor my wedding party had to do any of the set up. We renting the center pieces from the venue, which were so beautiful and way high end. The linens just sparkled in all the sunlight and in the evening everything was glowing! It took us a little less then a year to plan the wedding. me and my now HUSBAND really wanted it to be special and well thought out. We talked a lot about the wedding even down to the little details. Nothing was missed our planner was so organized and was so easy to contact. She set everything up for us. She had contacted all of the vendors and did all the hard work for us. She also had already worked with the vendors and had a good relationship with them. It made choosing vendors so easy. Because in the end you are not really sure who you are dealing with. But having a venue that has all the good ones already picked out is wonderful. I loved getting married and I LOVE being married. Mr.and Mrs. Howard, Thank The Edgewater House from the bottom of our hearts for such a beautiful memory. We could not have asked for a more beautiful life!

The Edgewater House is an absolutely beautiful place to get married and quite unique compared to the other options available in the Puget Sound area. Our wedding day went off without a hitch and we continue to hear from our guests how it was the most beautiful and fun wedding to which they've been. Marilyn and her team were professional and do a wonderful job keeping this looking beautiful during the busy wedding season. With that said, there are a few things one should know if they're considering this venue. Like another reviewer mentioned, we were shocked at the jump in price from the verbal quote we received in June 2010 and the new quote we were given when we were finally able to book a date and put down our deposit 10 weeks later. By that time, our emotions were so invested in this venue that we decided to just splurge and cut back the budget for some of our other vendors. I don't regret our decision in the slightest, but the anxiety caused by the fact that we couldn't book a date until "sometime in August" and the price jump was very stressful and frustrating. Marilyn offered various other services that really completed the vision we had for our wedding (bonfire, fireworks, smores) but instead of including them in the already very expensive package, they were all extra. Just left me feeling kind of nickled and dimed. Marilyn was responsive for the most part...calling her and leaving a message ended up being the best way to get a hold of her (versus the email tool on her website). Our other vendors didn't seem to have any major issues coordinating with her and from what I can tell she has good business relationships within the wedding industry. She seems to love what she does and clearly takes a lot of pride in her property. I would certainly recommend The Edgewater House to anyone looking for a beautiful, beach side wedding venue...just be sure you get a written quote and copy of the contract before you become emotionally invested.
