thank you so very much for making our wedding weekend an absolutely perfect event... not only for us, but for our guests. i cannot say enough about how every member of the staff, from the managers to the chef to the desk to the housekeepers went above and beyond. weddings can be very stressful, especially when they are big events like ours(!), but you all helped to fix every last minute drama & ultimately make every moment of our wedding weekend beautiful, unique, and stress-free. i left the last day tearful thanking everyone! :) cheers!

This place was absolutely amazing. Aside from the fantastic food, location of venue etc, the staff REALLY goes out of their way for you here. I have a million good things to say but I'll keep it short and tell you the event that impressed me the most about this place. One of my bridesmaids forgot her dress- in Maryland. She paid to overnight it but FedEx would only guarantee it to arrive at 4:30 (ceremony starts at 3pm). Tom, the wedding coordinator at the Asticou actually went and met the driver and picked up the dress without ever saying a word about it to anyone. I arrived back to my room after getting my hair done to find the box there. After a little sleuthing we figured out how it got there. This was above and beyond the call of duty and I don't think this would have been the case at any other venue.

I chose the Asticou Inn as I was looking for a Maine venue which would serve as a wonderful destination spot for guests from the South & Northeast. The Asticou Inn proved to be the perfect quaint New England Inn with great access to Acadia Park, the Azalea gardens, Bar Harbor, etc. But above all, I rank the Asticou so highly due to the exceptional service of the staff--above all Tom Weverstad. I could not have planned this destination wedding without Tom; everything from his initial recommendations to his last minute attention to detail the day of the wedding. Tom made it all happen. This is an extraordinary venue!

The Asticou Inn was a beautiful venue for our wedding; many of our guests told us that they had a wonderful weekend and were enchanted with the location. The Inn provided accommodations, dining, referrals to other vendors in the area, ceremony location and catering for the rehearsal and reception. Despite a last minute change of their wedding coordinator ten days before the wedding, their staff handled every detail smoothly and professionally. Everyone at the Inn was friendly and committed to making the event very special for us. The location was perfect, with spectacular views and short distances to Acadia National Park. We will return for anniversaries!

I loved getting married at the Asticou. They have a lot of weddings but they really know what they're doing, which was important for this out-of-town bride. Tom was THE BEST. He haggled with vendors for us, and took care of every detail with enthusiasm and relish. We had so many long telephone conversations before the wedding, I miss him. Basically a wedding planner included in the price of the reception. The setting could not be beat, and our guests were happy with their accomadations. The food could be improved, but I wouldn't change anything about our wedding there, they did a superb job.

We had our wedding at the Asticou this past summer and could not have asked for a more beautiful day. Tom at the Asticou worked us every step of the way. The food was fantastic and the ceremony venue was to die for (we were married on the lower field right in front of the harbor). The capable staff was there to cater to our needs and our guest absolutely loved the ambiance of Mount Desert Island without the chaos of downtown Bar Harbor during high season. (Thank goodness there wasn't a Carnival cruise in town)

All too often we heard "...this is the best wedding I have ever been to..." Of course, you hope to think that's because you're marrying the love of your life and you've invited all of your closest friends, so they're going to say these types of things, but it came from so many varied guests (some I was meeting for the first time) that we are convinced that the old-school ambiance of the Asticou and the wonderful food and drink had a great lot to do with it.

For food we went with some great appetizers for the cocktail hour (potstickers, spanikopita, fig and goat crostini, lamb lollipops) and then four choices for dinner (3 + veg option), Boiled Lobster, Filet of Beef with Cabernet reduction, Chicken stuffed with Gouda and Leeks and a pasta dish.

We even rented the house across the street, the Cranberry Lodge, to host our afterparty, which was a fantastic move - I definitely recommend it if you aren't renting out the whole Inn. We were able to let the parents go to bed, and the Inn provided plates/cups/utensils for our munchies and coolers for the beer/wine we picked up. Just a great way to finish off the weekend.

Highly recommended... and this is coming from a husband venturing onto a wedding website to review... should speak for itself :-)

My husband and I got married at the Asticou this past July, and I have nothing but positive things to say about the setting and the staff at the Asticou. We had an outdoor ceremony, and we are still getting comments from guests that the location could not have been more beautiful. The staff, particularly Tom Weverstead, the wedding coordinator at the Asticou, were incredibly helpful and made sure that every detail was covered beautifully and seamlessly. Tom was so easy to work with, and really took care to make sure that our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. The staff were all incredibly gracious with our guests. Friends and family who stayed there had a great time. We even rented out the Cranberry Inn for an afterparty, which worked perfectly. The great wraparound porch was a perfect setting. We are so thrilled with our choice of wedding venue! I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering a Maine wedding or looking for a classic, charming place to stay up in Acadia.

All in all Tom and the Asticou helped make my wedding day absolutely beautiful. There was a lot of extra work. I thought the food and beverages were expensive and low quality. A number of special requests were ignored or forgotten. But others were honored, and the wedding ended up feeling pretty personal despite being held at a wedding factory like the Asticou. I was worried about the guest rooms, but those turned out to be lovely. And everybody found the scenery spectacular. It was nice to be away from the hubub of northeast harbor too. While he couldn't do everything in the end, Tom was great to work with and does his best to make everyone happy. In the end, we had to do a lot of extra work to bring their team up to city standards, but we got most of what we wanted at a price we could afford.
