I got married at Kurtz's Beach this past Saturday (8/20/2016) and I can not believe how great it turned out. My wedding had around 130 people in attendance and not one person left without a smile on their face. The food, decorations, staff, location & service were beyond what I ever imagined.
I received so many compliments on the venue and so many people told me my wedding was one of the most beautiful and well put together weddings they have ever attended. I can not thank John, Ashley, and Donna and everyone else that helped enough!!
Everyone told me "At least 1 thing will go wrong on your wedding day." and I can honestly say that nothing went wrong and it was all because of them! I will always recommend Kurtz's Beach to anyone that's getting married :)
PS - Be sure to get the Bridal Cottage, it is amazing. TRUST ME!

Put Kurtz's Beach on your list and give them serious consideration. For the money you can't beat Kurtz's Beach. I am very needy. Each time I had a concern they responded so professionally that I knew I had nothing to worry about. Our wedding went so well. It was the best day of our lives and we have no regrets choosing Kurtz's Beach. It's run by owners that take great pride in their business and it's reputation. The owners have hired phenomenal staff. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Kurtz Beach was absolutely amazing! The venue is beautiful & we were lucky enough to have our ceremony on the patio facing the Chesapeake Bay. There's a lot of outdoor space with an outdoor fireplace & beautiful landscaping. Our pictures were gorgeous! The staff was extremely helpful, kind, & professional. They did everything they could to make our day special. I was
not stressed at all because they were on top of everything. The owner & staff are very family oriented & made us feel so welcomed. I'm so happy & blessed we got married at Kurtz Beach!

I would use Kurtz's Beach for any event! They were awesome to work with. They answered questions quickly and once we hit our final meeting with them we turned everything over to them to deal with. I would highly recommend them. The food was great, the staff were superb, and the day of mangers were spot on and kept the flow going! The value of services for the location with more than worth the cost! The cost is mostly inclusive, they have decor they allow you to use which it great for the budget friendly bride! A lot of items are included in the price from we got our linens, decorations (we added a little something), table settings, tables, chairs, and open bar were included in our PP price. We also had the wedding there for a small additional cost and rented out the bridal cottage for an additional charge. Both were more that worth the extra cost! I would highly recommend them for your wedding. They are worth the drive to check out.

From the moment we went for our initial tour of the venue, we immediately felt the warmth of this family owned and operated business! We booked the outside venue for our May 29, 2016 wedding and "PERFECT" is an understatement! From the moment we booked, John Mason and Ashley Mason were accessible and eager to help with all of my questions and concerns. We booked The Bridal Cottage (A MUST!!) for the day of the wedding, it the grounds there were breathtaking! Ashley met us as soon as we pulled up and was right there the entire time, helping...pinning....steaming...and keeping us on track without ever being pushy. I loved her!!! The grounds were perfectly manicured, the staff was incredible and I can't tell you how many people came up to us, and told us it was THE BEST wedding that they had ever been to!! Thank you Kurtz Beach for your help in making out wedding day, a dream come true! ??

Was a beautiful location right on the water, it made for a perfect outdoor ceremony. The staff was amazing and very organized. Everything was timed and went smoothly. We enjoyed having our ceremony and reception here and would not have changed a thing other than maybe gettin a extra hour.

Our daughter and her fiancé wanted a Chesapeake wedding, and after looking at several sites, we chose Kurtz's Beach. It's not the easiest place to get to, but the location--right on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay--was perfect for us, and the staff couldn't have been easier to work with. Their planning and preparations were first rate, their execution was flawless, and the facility delivered everything we'd hoped for. The variety and quality of food and drink during the reception--it was a morning wedding--exceeded our expectations. All in all, Kurtz's Beach proved to be an extraordinary value. (The Bride's Cottage turned out to be well worth its $500 cost, too.)

We had a morning wedding at Kurtz's Beach, and had a perfect experience. We received many compliments from the guests on the attractiveness of the venue, the execution of the ceremony, and the quality of the food (we did brunch-- Kurtz's bartender does a fantastic Bloody Mary; tip: if you request Bloody Mary's specifically as part of your menu, the bartender can make the base in bulk from fresh ingredients rather than relying on a store-bought mix!). We also used the Bridal Cottage to get ready before the ceremony, and loved the relaxing atmosphere and supportive staff-- having the extra time and space to prepare for the wedding was incredibly valuable, and we both were glad we had opted to rent the cottage.

We didn't really have many strong opinions about what we wanted our wedding to be like, and the Kurtz's staff were patient and helpful with suggesting different kinds of options (including recommending a great local baker and local florist). All of Kurtz's Beach's suggestions seem to have worked beautifully: several of our friends remarked on how "authentic" the wedding seemed, based on knowing our personalities. In addition, my spouse and I come from different cultures, and the staff at Kurtz's were very happy to help us find ways to incorporate small nods to both of our backgrounds into the wedding, such as in the food options. We wanted a wedding that would be enjoyable for our guests (several of whom had traveled internationally just to attend our ceremony, so we really wanted to treat them well!), reasonably low-stress for us, and would give all of us good memories for the future. Kurtz's delivered exactly that. Thank you so much!

I absolutely LOVE this venue. My wedding was June 27th, 2015 and I was heartbroken when we had a torrential downpour the entire day and my ceremony was originally suppose to take place outside overlooking the water. When I showed up, I saw how incredibly gorgeous the inside looked and gave the ok to have the ceremony inside. It was still beautiful, service was great and there were 2 bars open with no lines. The only change I would have made is to get an extra hour to have more time to enjoy it. I feel like it went by so fast! Thanks for everything John! You really helped me feel at ease, even when I was freaking out about the rain!
