Radiating the aura of a bygone era at every turn, the Powel Crosley Estate resides impressively on 45 acres overlooking an expansive, unobstructed view of Sarasota Bay. Built in 1925 by famed inventor Powel Crosley as his family's winter residence, and originally named Sea Gate, the two and a half-story structure represents a superb example of Florida's Mediterranean Revival Architecture of the period.

The Powel Crosley Estate is one of the most beautiful venues (if not the most beautiful) in Sarasota. When my husband and I walked into the Crosley, we knew right away that we wanted to have it as our wedding location. We put a date on hold right away. Because the Crosley is so spectacular, it is a very very popular wedding venue. I would reccomend booking as soon as you know you want this venue.

Our event manager was Meridith. She was wonderful to work with, very friendly. She made sure that everything was in order (especially the bar). For 80 guests, we did not pay a lot for alcohol. The prices are very fair.

What I love most about the Crosley is that there are so many great locations on the property to take pictures. You have the balcony, the lawn, the front of the house, banyon trees, the sailor room, steps and much more. There is also a beautiful bridal room the bride and bridesmaids can get ready in.

All in all, it was a perfect and romantic setting for a wedding.

We held our wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate this past weekend. I had so many of our guests tell me that they had never seen a prettier venue. The views of the bay are breathtaking and the architecture on the house is so unique. We chose this venue because we barely had to decorate at all, it was so beautiful on its own. Dawn and Maribeth were so accommodating an easy to work with. We planned our wedding from our of state and they made it so simple. Maribeth was also so helpful on the day of our wedding. Thank you!

Not only is this venue absolutely beautiful but the entire experience with the planning and day of was perfect. Maribeth was so helpful not only with recommending vendors but with set up and organization the day of the wedding. Our friends and family are still talking about how beautiful it was. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married. Perfect!

The Powel Crosely Estate is by far the most beautiful venue in the Tampa/Sarasota area. We fell in love as soon as we saw the venue, but working with Maribeth made the experience even better. She was super accommodating, very organized, and so sweet. She even helped our wedding planner with details throughout the night! Thank you Maribeth for all of your hard work in making our wedding absolutely perfect!

The Crosley Estate is the epitome of romance! The architecture, the grounds, the history! All of it is just beautiful. We were married there in late May. Our ceremony was on the lawn facing the water, centered between the two palm trees on the southwest corner of the property. We had dinner in the two dining rooms with our sweetheart table centered in front of the fireplace mantle. Our reception took place on the veranda with tables scattered on the lawn and under the gazebo. The pictures are priceless. Although Ringling is breath taking, it is no where near Crosley as you get the entire grounds. My entire wedding party got ready on our special day in the upstairs of the house. We all felt like royalty. We had the venue from early morning until midnight and had the complete run of the place. The Crosley Estate is also much more affordable than Ringling. We got a special rate due to our wedding being on Memorial Day weekend, monday.
Two tips:
Book early! Crosley books up very fast so give yourself plenty of time to get the date you want. (close to a year)
Be aware that it is an old house. We had the a/c cranked but it is hard for any building to combat the heat of late May in Florida with all the doors open. Just keep it in mind when picking your date.
If you picture a fairy-tale, secret garden-esque, wedding with a gorgeous sunset while taking advantage of Sarasota Bay's natural beauty then the Powel Crosley Estate is perfect for you!

This is an INCREDIBLE venue. We loved planning our wedding here from the very beginning. The event rep that they assign to you is so on top of it, very helpful, and was extremely responsive to all of our questions. The best part was the alcohol bill. We had heard negative things and we were pretty worried because we have a mixed group of light and heavy drinkers, but we only went $4 over our deposit of $20 per person. The bartenders went above and beyond to treat our guests well and made sure they were very happy the whole time and had the exact drink in their hand that they wanted. Highly recommend this venue

Anyone who has EVER been to the Powel Crosley Estate knows how absolutely amazing it is. Once we went, there was no other option for our wedding. It is a magical, enchanted place. The Estate is so beautiful on it's own, it actually doesn't even need anything - it is stunning completely empty.

Maribeth Liberty was fantastic to work with. Incredibly helpful, caring, funny. She was great - and the whole staff was a pleasure. Before our wedding, I visited the Estate about 10 times and everyone was always so sweet and friendly. The only problem with the Powel Crosley Estate is that I can't be there permanently - it was tough to leave one of my favorite places on earth.
