  • Deciding on a venue for your wedding is no small task. From the first contact with the 5th Maine, it was nothing but smooth sailing. Gail and her entire team made the planning, logistics, and execution of our vision absolutely seamless. Extremely affordable, wonderfully accessible facilities, and oh my god THE VIEW! Being Portland residents, and both born and raised in Maine, this was the quintessential Maine Coast wedding venue we could only have dreamed of. Filled with history, it is the absolute perfect place for you to celebrate your nuptials, or enjoy the wonderful museum on your day trip to Peaks. The gardens are perfectly manicured, and believe it or not, we didn’t pay extra for the monarch butterflies filling the garden during our ceremony. If I could give this place, and all it’s staff 100 stars, I would! Thanks again for making our day PERFECT.
  • Awesome little museum on the 5th Maine as well as the local history of the island, including WWII and Battery Steele. Awesome and knowledgeable people working there as well. Highly recommend!
