Our wedding felt like a family reunion at Point Lookout - in the best possible way. We loved all being together in a beautiful place. The Summit was nothing short of spectacular for the ceremony and reception. The wedding coordinators Jessica and Kari were the best in the business. Our guests want to do it again next year!!
You cannot get better than Pt. Lookout when it comes to wedding venues. My husband and I got married here this past July, and it was absolutely perfect. We are in the event business so we see a lot of venues, and this by far is the best I've seen when it comes to service,atmosphere, staff, food, amenities, etc. Our guests loved staying at the cabins, everyone made a family vacation out of our wedding which made it extra special. The farm-to-table food really fits in with our lifestyle, and it was the tastiest food I've ever had at an event. Service and staff were on point. The vendors Pt Lookout recommends were all fantastic. You are in good hands with Jessie and Kari (the wedding coordinators). We rented the bowling alley for the after party, and it made our wedding such a unique experience. It's been almost 2 months and all of our guests are still talking about how beautiful and perfect it was.
This place is amazing to work with. Cannot recommend them highly enough! Jessie and Kariann took care of everything we needed. The piece of mind that comes with knowing that everything will go smoothly because you're working with professionals is priceless. Everything we needed help with they were willing and able to help in every way. If we needed anything they made it happen. The views and the cabins brought us to this place, but the people at Point Lookout we partnered with were what made our wedding so special!
After considerable (exhaustive at times) location research, we knew Point Lookout was THE place/perfect for our wedding after seeing it for the first time in September 2016. From our initial meeting then to our August 2017 wedding weekend--and now a little over a month later--we could not be happier with our decision to go with Point Lookout. Its location on a mountain right on Maine's mid-coast in Northport (between Camden and Belfast), approximately 2.5 hours north of Portland was the ideal location for our planned wedding weekend of 120 people (ended up with about 90 people present). What made this gorgeous location even more superb was PL's wedding team comprised of Jessie and Kari. These ladies are top notch, true professionals. You know that feeling when you meet someone and everything just clicks? This is what happened when we met them. They are knowledgeable, responsive, courteous, warm, welcoming, thorough, detail-oriented, and unequivocally the best! This extends to the rest of the staff at PL, too. Everyone is so great, we are still luminous 6 weeks later!
The moment my wife and I toured Point Lookout we knew that the search was over and we had found the perfect spot to have our big day. And it didn’t disappoint. Everything about Point Lookout was conducive to truly creating a day that encompassed everything we dreamed of. Our wedding coordinators, Jess and Kariann were there with us every step of the way and always quick to answer any and all questions we had. They really took a lot of the panic out of the planning process. Point Lookout offered a truly incredible venue for us and our guests. We got to enjoy a bit of everything; the views from the Summit during the cocktail hour, and the vast lawn and yard space for games at the Pavilion for the reception. Our guests continue to rave about having the shuttles and cabins on property, making it feel like a trip back to camp, or weekend vacation where they could safely have fun without the hassle of driving. We truly have nothing but great things to say about Point Lookout, and if we had to do it over 100 times, 100 times we'd pick Point Lookout.
Getting married at Point Lookout was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. You can’t beat the view and there are so many event space options. Our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were all held at the Summit, with the ceremony and cocktail hour outside. Luckily it didn’t rain, but if it had even the inside room for the ceremony would have been great. We also had a welcome BBQ at the Pavilion and the after party at the bowling alley on site. It is such a unique venue and having the after party at the bowling alley was so fun! The fact that all our guests were able to stay onsite in the cabins with a shuttle to transport them from event to event was amazing. It made the whole weekend a vacation for everybody.
Another thing that sets Point Lookout apart from other venues is the wedding coordinator, Jessie! She was amazing!! She was so helpful when we were trying to decide on event spaces and food and décor options. She responded quickly to emails and answered any questions we had. After we booked all our vendors we sent her the list and she coordinated with them to make sure they knew when and where to show up/set up before the wedding. She was at each of our events making sure things ran smoothly and according to the tentative timeline we had worked on together. I honestly cannot say enough nice things about Jessie. We loved working with her!
Point Lookout is definitely worth the money. The whole weekend went exactly according to plan and that is due to the professionalism and perfection of the Point Lookout staff. Everyone we interacted with, from the servers to the landscapers, was so nice and accommodating. They truly make you feel like your wedding is the most important one of the year. And like I said before, you can’t beat the view
“What an amazing event!” “Best wedding we’ve been to!” “How did you ever find this place!” We have had days of getting feedback and everyone, including Tommy and I, were absolutely blown away! We cannot thank you enough for all that you and your staff have done over the past 3 months. You orchestrated a wonderful wedding, impeccable dinner, and welcoming/engaging environment for drinks and dancing! We are fortunate people to have had perfect weather too with the strawberry moon to dance under, and the help from you to pull off such a memorable day and weekend! We cannot thank you enough.

I wanted to say thank you for all the work you did for Deb and I before and during our wedding. I know Deb felt at ease and everything was beyond our expectations. Our friends, and families could not rave enough about the venue, service, food, cabins and overall experience. For this we are truly grateful. Thanks again for everything and we will try to stop in and say hello as we plan to visit sometime near the end of the summer.
Caine and Deb
I first off wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff. You made our wedding day so seamless… and really the whole wedding process. I honestly can't speak highly enough about you and your staff's customer service.
You do a great job at what you do… Sarah and I appreciate all the work and last minutes changes and accommodations you made for us and our guests.
All I can say is thanks.
Hi Lisa and Jessie!
We just wanted to thank you for all that you did for our wedding. You were so amazing and helpful at making our whole wedding weekend seamless and beautiful. It was better than we could have ever imagined! All of our guests could not stop raving about the venue and how great you and your staff were.
Thank you again for everything!
Connor and Alex
Absolutely incredible! Our day was everything we've ever dreamt of and more! Point Lookout is beyond beautiful and one of the most incredible places I've ever stayed. My husband and I are so happy that we chose Point Lookout as the venue for our big day! The staff was great and Lisa and Jess were absolutely wonderful!
Fantastic staff that are flexible and organized, made my day so stress free. Unbeatable views of the Maine coast, everyone is still raving about how amazing our venue was. Food was local and delicious as well! Cabins for guests also allow you to make a weekend of it and the cabins are so cozy and fun!! 100% recommend to everyone!!!
Ella and Dave
As mother of the bride, I can't say enough good things about Point Lookout. It was the perfect venue in every way. Obviously, a beautiful spot and facility for a wedding. In addition, the staff all the way from the event coordinators down to the kitchen staff, were a pleasure to work with. All of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. For most of our guests, this was a destination wedding requiring at least 4 hours of travel --- everyone felt the trip was worth it and many will be coming back in the future to stay at a cabin while on vacation in the area! I highly recommend Point Lookout as a wedding venue --- you will not be disappointed.
This was the most amazing day I could have dreamed of. They knew all of the ins and outs of wedding planning and were so helpful in the planning process. Every detail was attended to and thought of for our big day. They were always available to chat and go over any concerns we may have had leading up to it. They are more than willing to meet with you and discuss details. On the big day they check on you and make sure that everything is alright. I am still re-living every magical moment from our big day, and you won't be disappointed if you decide to have any event here as well.
Lisa, Thank you for making Margaret’s day so, so special. Your professionalism and attention to detail were second to none… Everything was perfect! Thanks again & all the best.
Will and Jeanne
Dear Lisa and Jessie,
Thank you for an amazing wedding! Your Guidance throughout the whole process was on point. You made everything easy to understand and responded to ALL of our emails (crazy ones, and not!) The day went so smoothly, all our guests couldn’t get over how amazing the view was from the venue (The Summit), how great the food was, and how nice the staff was. Everyone was treated so well. We all want to return to Point Lookout in the near future.
Thank you for making our dreams come true! Love Always,
Annelies and Jason
We had such a wonderful wedding weekend at Point Lookout! Not only is it a beautiful property with amazing views, but the staff could not have been nicer. For coordinating the wedding, we worked mainly with Jessie, and she was super helpful, friendly, and responsive. We loved that our guests were able to stay right on the property, which allowed us to get a lot more interaction with people than we would have been able to at a different venue. Everyone was so thrilled with the location and the cabins. It was also great that we were able to have two different locations for the ceremony (The Summit) and reception (The pavilion). We also did our after party at the bowling alley, which was a blast! We are so happy we chose this Point Lookout for our wedding!
A hundred thank yous to both of you. You made Ella's wedding so effortless and fabulous. Hope your season continues to run smoothly. We so appreciate you!
Julie and Bob
Absolutely loved the venue- the ceremony/reception site (we used The Summit) was amazingly beautiful, and the cabins are cozy and just what we were looking for. Our guests LOVED the cabins and the wedding site. Our wedding coordinators were awesome, and made a beautiful weekend for us!
We are so happy we selected Point Lookout for our wedding. It's the most beautiful wedding location in Maine, and so accommodating -- saving us a great deal of stress in the planning process, and moreover, the day of!
Since most of our family and friends had to travel to Maine, it was wonderful to have everyone stay at the cabins with us for several days. We also rented the bowling alley for the after party, and it was great to have late night entertainment and safe transportation figured out.
We only had to figure out our cake, flowers, and DJ; the rest was handled by Point Lookout, and they coordinated with our vendors and handled everything else. Between the beautiful mountaintop views and sophisticated venue stylings, we didn't have to worry about decorating at all.
The venue and services/packages are not cheap, but we elected to have our wedding on a Sunday before "high" season in order to take advantage of discounts. We appreciated having nearly all of our costs figured out a year in advance and spread across 3 installments, instead of taking our chances on surprise costs down the road.
Point Lookout is the PERFECT destination wedding venue. Beautiful location, stunning views, elegant and Mainesy buildings. Cabins are campy and comfy. The Summit is the most spectacular site for a ceremony. The Pavilion was just beautiful and gave our 150 guests and big band lots of room to enjoy themselves. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared. Service was great. Wedding coordinators were extremely professional and helpful. Never made me feel like a crazy MOB! They orchestrated the entire weekend which allowed me to be an honored guest. And our guests could not have been more complimentary. Everyone felt well cared for. It was the wedding my daughter has always dreamed of. Worth every penny.
