Weddings, Reunions, and Special Events

Planning a Special Event? The Welch House might be just the place! Our comfortable common areas offer both indoor and outdoor gathering places perfect for small groups. Our in-town location makes it easy for your friends and family to walk to waterfront activities and restaurants as they wish: no driving or parking required! Weve hosted many events of all types, and we're happy to speak with you about your event ideas, and share some of our experience.
  • Intimate Weddings, Elopements, & Vow Renewals
  • Milestone Birthday or Anniversary Celebrations
  • Book Club, Knitting Club, Red Hats, or Girlfriend Getaways
  • Family Reunions
  • Corporate Retreats

If your guest list is a small one (4 to 24) and you'd like to consider having your ceremony on site, our top deck offers a panoramic view of the harbor, and our living room has a lovely view (and a cozy fireplace) in case of inclement weather. We are also happy to have your guests who may be staying elsewhere come join you for a farewell breakfast the day after: please inquire about numbers and costs.

Group Rates

We operate fourteen guest rooms with overnight accommodations for up to 32 people in the high season (May October); or nine guest rooms that sleep up to 19 people in the off season (November April). We also work closely with neighboring inns to accommodate larger groups: please inquire. Prices during the off-season are significantly lower, and allow you to enjoy the same comfort and ambiance at a much reduced price! Please note that we don't accept group bookings over weekends during July and August. Also, we will not host an event unless you are also booking guest rooms.

If youre having a large destination wedding at one of the lovely churches or resorts on the Boothbay peninsula, we can help with guest accommodations.
