Wedding & Event Venues

A Cape Ann destination wedding at the Emerson Inn can be a small elopement, or a large wedding with all the friends and family. We offer several facilities for use at a wedding or event held on our grounds.

Wedding Facilities

Oceanview Lawn: Our lawn directly faces the Atlantic Ocean, and has been a key feature of weddings at the Emerson Inn for decades as our primary ceremony location.

Veranda: Our veranda, overlooking the back lawn and the Atlantic Ocean, is the perfect place to relax with guests over a cocktail or glass of wine. Combined with our parlor and back lawn, it's a perfect place to wind down after a beautiful wedding ceremony on our lawn.

Parlor: Emerson Inn's historic parlor has been renovated many times throughout it's history, most recently in 2015 when wall treatments were refreshed, and the floors updated. Our historic parlor serves as our on-site bar, and can be used for dancing and mingling, as well as an alternative to the lawn for ceremonies held during less-than-perfect weather.

Oceanview Terrace Room: The oceanview terrace room, located on the lower level of the Inn, is typically used for conferences, rehearsal dinners, showers and small weddings. This room is ideal for smaller weddings and corporate events seeking a private dining space.

Main Dining Room & Veranda: Our main dining room is located inside our on-site restaurant Pigeon Cove Tavern, and can be reserved for afternoon events or dinner space when the restaurant is closed.

Pigeon Cove Room: Our Pigeon Cove room is an interior room located adjacent to the Oceanview Terrace room, and can generally be used as a breakout room during meetings, or to setup a buffet for a corporate dinner or other event. The Pigeon Cove room is also often used as a dressing room for bridal parties.
