My husband and I got married at Swan Cove this month (September 2017). We stayed 3 nights with our family and friends and the accommodations were so beautiful and well kept. Plus we had a great time enjoying the property and being together. Everyone on the team at Swan Cove is extremely helpful and responsive. Specifically Bernadette, Frank & Stevie - thank you all so much for all of your help! We used a great bunch of vendors recommended by Swan Cove & everyone was excellent. Our wedding guests absolutely loved the scenery and the property, we had a beautiful sunny day. Our wedding was truly a dream at Swan Cove Manor!

Our family and all of our guests had a fantastic time at Swan Cove for our daughter’s wedding. It was the perfect venue – the houses are all well maintained and furnished, and the beauty of the property just blew everyone away. It was so nice to have our extended families and everyone in the wedding party on the property so we could just hang out together in the days leading up to the wedding. The local property manager (Steve) was a big help and made our visit enjoyable. He was a great resource for information and local vendors when we were in the planning stage, and he was responsive and helpful when we got to Swan Cove and had some questions. That peace of mind allowed us to kick back and enjoy ourselves. We were looking for the perfect venue for a magical day, and Swan Cove delivered.
Swan Cove Manor responded with the following comments:
It makes us so very happy to receive such a wonderful review of Swan Cove Manor. It's been an ongoing effort to continually work on upgrades but we know deep down that your appreciation of this effort makes it all worthwhile. We were thrilled to host your entire family and so many friends and be such a critical part of your daughter's most special day. May God bless their marriage and bring many wonderful memories and gifts throughout the years.

From start to finish we could not have asked for better treatment. Facilities were wonderful. Everyone we dealt with was a pleasure, all questions asked and answered. Although they have not used the vendors themselves the list was a tremendous help. The site is spectacular making for amazing photos, there is so much to do, and most got to stay on site.
Swan Cove Manor responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much for your comments Michael and Caroline! It is so important to us that you are happy with what we have to offer at Swan Cove Manor. I am so glad you all enjoyed yourselves and that your experience was a wonderful one. God Bless You and your new marriage! Frank, Brian, Steve and Thierry

I can't say enough about our time at Swan Cove Manor. The accommodations let us have a lot of our family and guests stay on site so the wedding weekend lasted more than "4 fast hours". It's out in Cambridge, but there are plenty of hotels and other vendors nearby to help you pull off the event you want. Frank and Steve have a full list to help you out with tents and so on. For any small things - there is a WalMart about 12 miles away so you can grab last minute things no problem. We did our wedding outdoors - no bugs problems because they spray the place. Everyone said it was a great time being able to hang out at the docks. The family laughingly jokes that we should try to rent it every year for a reunion!
Swan Cove Manor responded with the following comments:
Thank you John and Anu! We really enjoy hearing that all went well for you knowing it was such an important occasion. I've heard peoples concern about bugs and I'm glad to know that treating the grounds works. It's expensive to treat 22 acres but it's well worth it when we know it's helped you to enjoy your time. By the way, I'm even more glad to know that it's being done with an environmentally friendly product, by professionals approved by the County of Dorchester. We too believe that the experience of having a wedding experience with family and friends over a 2 or 3 day period is so much better than 4 hours. God bless you and your new marriage! Fran, Steve, Brian and Thierry!

My husband and I just got married at Swan Cove Manor and it was without a doubt the best weekend of our lives! We rented all 4 houses on the property and had our families and wedding party stay at the houses with us. The Quarterdeck was a great space for my husband and I and we loved the shower. All of the houses were great, well kept and cozy. We had an outdoor rehearsal dinner by the water behind the Chart house. Many stayed around and we sat by the fire, roasted marshmallows and our family and friends had the time to get to know one another. Although we were in the path of a hurricane on our wedding day, everyone was relaxed because we had already had so much fun already. Luckily the hurricane missed us. We had a tent behind the Mariner and the ladies got hair and makeup done at the large table in the house. When I put my dress on in the first floor room of the Mariner it was cool to be able to look out and see guests arriving and get a sneak peak of my husband. We got married in front of the dock closest and it was beautiful. The dock and surrounding grassy areas were great photo locations. Our wedding was perfect. Our photographer, Mike Sperlak was on point and got every candid moment we would have wanted captured including some guests jumping into the water later in the evening. It was a stress reliever to be able to let the night flow vs being on a tight schedule because we did not have a time limit at the venue. The next day we held a bbq and cornhole tournament where we drank, ate, and engaged in friendly competition. It was awesome being able to spend time with friends and family. We did not feel that we had to spend our wedding day visiting with people because we had the opportunity to see most of the guests during the weekend. Many guests said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. My husband and I highly recommend Swan Cove Manor. It was the best, most memorable way to start our lives together.
Swan Cove Manor responded with the following comments:
Dear Kathy and Corey, Your review means so much to us. I loved seeing your photos. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed themselves at Swan Cove Manor. I am glad you had the time to relax and get to be with everyone. I think that is so very important. Although our venue isn't for everyone, I suggest that the bridal couple consider the fact that at a hotel or country club they typically get 4 or 5 hours to spend with their guests. That means, assuming they spend 1 hour for dinner, photos and time with each other during the event, they will have about 4 hours (240 minutes) to meet and greet their guests. This means for the average wedding of 120 people, the bridal couple will have about 2 minutes with each guest, if their time is shared evenly. At Swan Cove Manor there's plenty of time to meet and share with everyone. I've always considered that to be of great value and I am so glad you took advantage of that opportunity.

Beautiful venue, responsive owners who really care. I left something valuable at the house and they immediately tracked it down and held it for me from weeks while I was on my honeymoon. I can't recommend them enough.

"We got married at Swan Cove Manor in April 2016. We lucked out and had a week of perfect weather at what turned out to be the perfect location for our celebration. The property is stunning and very well maintained. Our guests were overjoyed at all the possibilities the property had to offer. From the kayaks to the fire pits, and the pool the property had something for everyone. The water views were unbeatable and offered the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. The owners and property managers were extremely responsive and helpful, going above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The venue was gloriously secluded, but still close enough to town to pick up any last minute supplies we needed. That we could have the majority of our wedding guests stay right on the venue was great and allowed others to share our wedding weekend as a family vacation of their own. Everyone had a wonderful time and we’d strongly recommend Swan Cove Manor to anyone looking to hold a wedding or other large event."
Swan Cove Manor responded with the following comments:
Thank you Beth and Mike! Your choosing Swan Cove Manor as your venue meant so much to us. It gives us great pleasure to play such an important role in a couples new life together. We take that responsibility very seriously. You are truly a wonderful couple and we do wish you all of God's blessings!

Swan cove Manor made our wedding the dream that I have always hoped it would be! The Perfect Wedding Words cannot adequately describe how incredible the venue is. With the Flexibility of choosing our own caterer, DJ and everything else we were able to make our wedding day exactly as we wanted it to be. The Houses at Swan Cove are amazing. being able to accommodate many of my friends and family the entire weekend was fantastic. We are already talking about coming back on Vacation !!!!! Thank you Frank for all your help.
Swan Cove Manor responded with the following comments:
Hi Morgan, We are so very glad that you chose to trust us enough to make Swan Cove Manor such an important part of your wedding experience. It is reviews such as your which make my partners and I so proud to own such a wonderful property on the Chesapeake Bay. Having a total of 7 daughters among my 2 partners and I, we have a keen appreciation for what a bride wants on such an important day. Thank you for your kind words!

We had an amazing wedding at Swan Cove! Best day of our lives! It was so nice to stay on property. The staff was accommodating and Steve goes out of his way to make sure you feel at home. The property is BREATHTAKING. There was something for our entire family to do all weekend. Set up and take down was easy and painless. Payment and deposit was prompt and Frank was a breeze to work with. We loved it some much we recommended to our friends who are getting married 9/2017! Cant wait to go back!

This venue was perfect for our daughter's wedding! We had a lot of guests who'd traveled far and were happy that they could stay right on the property! We had the rehearsal dinner, the wedding, and a BBQ the next day all at Swan Cove. I liked that around 11PM we could just walk a few steps and crash for the night while our daughter and her friends partied until I don't know when. It was so nice to not have to drive anywhere. And to wake up the next morning to a beautiful sunrise and quiet peacefulness felt so good. The properties were well stocked, furnished, and comfortable. I want to say to anyone who is considering Swan Cove for your event that you will be happy with your choice. This venue was perfect for the wedding we had, but also would be great for a family reunion, a special birthday, or any other memorable event.
