We cannot say enough good things about Jeremy, Jason, Chelsea and all of the Newagen staff. From the moment we toured the inn grounds to when we said goodbye the day after our wedding there, the entire staff was nothing but welcoming, accommodating, and a true pleasure to work with. Our guests raved about the location, staff and food and told us between the inn, staff and ourselves, we set a new standard for weddings. As a bride planning from long distance, I didn't have to worry about a thing. The smallest details were taken care of, and always with professionalism and genuine kindness. We wish we could get married there again, but will definitely be back to visit!

Newagen Seaside Inn is worth MORE than every penny you spend. so many things to rave about where do I begin....
It is truly a magical place, every wedding guest raved about it and want to come back again! This place makes you fall in love with Maine and the sea.
I booked Newagen for my wedding before I was even able to visit in person but we had no regrets!
The Inn is very secluded which adds to its beauty and charm. For your wedding weekend you get the whole property for your wedding guests and family, which feels so intimate and is just a ton of fun. I would highly recommend the new honeymoon suite, the Seahorse Cottage. It is beautiful with privacy and incredible view of the water, with porches. AND when you book the seahorse cottage you get the use of a golf cart to drive around the property, it came in handy to transport bridesmaids!
My coordinator Jessica was THE BEST, incredibly organized and will help you with any planning you need. She was always great with communication and made sure every detail was taken care of. All of the staff at Newagen is great to work with as well.
The food was very tasty, did not taste like bland wedding food at all. The blueberry sangria is super delicious!
I had my wedding at the end of September (beautiful weather) and the ceremony was held on the lower lawn near the water (views were breathtaking with all the boats). The reception was in a tent (beautiful sail cloth tent!) on the same lower lawn. Between the rowboats, lawn for games, and Pine Room (game room) there was so much for guests to do during cocktail hour before dinner (and while wedding party was taking photos).
Newagen knows how to do weddings, they think of everything and its an incredibly magical experience. The grounds are beautiful for wedding photos, we also did portraits at the All Saints by the Sea church that is just down the road from Newagen on Southport Island (the little church is right on the water and has an awesome dock for photos).

As a wedding planner myself I searched far and wide looking for the perfect wedding location, dragging my fiancé to over 30 venues from the coast to the lakes region to the summit peaks... The Newagen Seaside Inn felt like the perfect fit as soon as we drive over the gorgeous swing bridges and tree lined driveway.

Our wedding was spectacular, being in the business we had very high expectations and the Newagen and their very friendly staff did a wonderful job executing our wedding. Please know no wedding is perfect, and hickups do come up along the way which leads to a great story down the road but the Newagen was very professional with handling each situation.

The biggest compliment is when your guests are atill talking about your wedding almost a year later! The food was fabulous, farm to table, fresh and the presentation was outstanding! Jessica and Jeremy were very responsive on the day of and handled my very demanding family with ease. We are looking forward to going back to the Newagen for our anniversary years to come!

Both Jason and Jessica were incredible to work with, put us at ease, and helped us to create the wedding of our dreams. If you're looking for a unique venue in Maine that provides a private retreat for your guests for the weekend, you've found the right place. Our friends and family are still raving about what an amazing location it was for a wedding. We're so happy with the way it turned out and can't wait to go back again soon!

Newagen exceeded all of our expectations. The scenery, staff, and accommodations were all fantastic—especially Jessica. We live in Missouri and had to book the entire event sight unseen. That sounds daunting, yet Jessica was there for us every step of the way. During the seven months leading up to the wedding she did an exceptional job communicating, organizing, and facilitating everything for our wedding weekend. Our guests were just as blown away as we were.

And the food!—Chef Fiona did a remarkable job on everything from the
complimentary breakfast buffet each morning, to the hors d'oeuvres at our cocktail hour, and especially the reception dinner. And the late-night taco bar after the reception was a crowd favorite. People are still talking about our food four months later (in a good wayJ).

We highly recommend Newagen. It’s been four months, and we still can’t think of one thing either of us would change about our wedding weekend. Starting with the s’mores and bonfire Friday night all the way through the Monday departure and everything in between, it was perfect.

Wonderful! It's a beautiful spot with delicious food. And we couldn't have been happier with Jessica and the whole staff at Newagen. They were fantastically helpful and responsive throughout all the preparations for our wedding. On the big day, we felt incredibly comfortable leaving all the details in Jessica's hands and were really able to relax and enjoy every minute of our wedding!

Jessica and the entire staff at the Newagen Inn were quick to respond to all of our requests and made our weekend-long wedding absolutely wonderful. From the lobster bake, bonfire and S'mores for the rehearsal dinner right until the Sunday Morning breakfast the staff were extremely accommodating. The facility's location and grounds are beautiful with plenty to do including tennis, lounging poolside, bowling and bike riding. The Inn itself is a very old building that is maintained well but do expect a bit of charm.

There was a bit of confusion at times between staff members at the Inn, which is not huge but when you are trying to get your guests to books rooms and they are told different things as far as availability it can get a bit frustrating. However the staff was very accommodating to our guests and to the wedding party which was so great. Jessica was our wedding planner/coordinator and was such a pleasure to work with. She was very flexible and really executed every little detail I had pictured in my head. I loved how it was just our guests at the Inn and there were no other weddings that weekend. The little Inn was such an amazing little treat for me and my bridesmaids to get dressed and ready in! I stayed there the night before the wedding and it was just perfect. My now Husband stayed in the main Inn and the only down side to the building being so old he said is that you can hear a lot through the walls! He was right above the bar and could hear the Celtics playing on the TV downstairs. Definitely not the Inn's fault but just something you do not think about until people mention it afterwards. All in all we absolutely loved our wedding weekend at Newagen and wish we could get married all over again to get the chance to be with the people we love in a place we love!

This is what I have to say about the Newagen - we fell in love with it as the absolute most beautiful, fitting and PERFECT place to have our wedding - the food was INCREDIBLE, the scenery stunning, I got to have s'mores which was a dream, they let us plant a tree on their property during our ceremony!!!!!!!, they let us fly our own flag - they handled ever little detail I forgot about - but I want to add this: If I know what I know now, and someone told me I couldnt have the inn manager, Jason, as my point person for the wedding - I would have followed him anywhere he was. Jason and his staff at the Newagen are, without a doubt, the BEST at what they do and I never had a moment of worry - he handled everything with calm and reassurance and there were so many things I never had to think twice about which made my wedding day the most enjoyable it could possibly be. He is a gift as is the Newagen in general and we can't wait to visit on various anniversary dates - my deepest thanks to Jason and his team at the perfect little Inn on the whole east coast ;) Love to you all for making our day the better than we ever dreamed :)

We had a wonderful experience at the Newagen. It's unique setting truly makes it special, and the ability to rent out the entire Inn and have all your friends and family around for the entire weekend really sets it apart from other waterfront venues on the coast of Maine. Unlike some venues where policies are inflexible, Jason was incredibly helpful, especially when it came to wedding weekend and he and the staff were always around to help out, answer questions, and make things happen. All the final details we were worried about became non-factors once Jason took control of them. A beautiful place, a great staff, awesome food, and facilities that are just perfect for a Maine wedding (bonfire, lawn for a tent, classic bowling alley / game room, cozy rooms) make the Newagen a place we couldn't recommend more!

I do not even know where to begin in describing how great the Newagen is. Jason and his staff bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed. If there was a last minute change it was not a big deal, if you needed help with transportation, directions, or anything at all they did it. Here is a little anecdote of one thing we dealt with. So the morning of our wedding it looked like rain. We had planned on taking a boat from the church to the Newagen. I woke up and started talking to Jason that morning, within minutes of me saying we may need to figure out other transportation Jason had already contacted local providers and was able to give me a list of other options and times we needed to let the vendors know by. I did not ask him to do this just mentioned we may need to figure something else out and he was on it. This was one of many things he and his staff did to make us feel at home. We could write books about how great the Newagen, Jason, and all the staff were to us. We both love Jason, the Newagen, and all their staff and cannot wait to go back.

The professional, friendly and very service-oreinted staff at the Newagen went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect all weekend for our wedding. The food was fabulous, they were incredibly accomodating of last minute changes to manage changing weather conditions, and the space itself was beautiful! I would highly recommend this venue for both rehearsal and wedding functions.

We honestly can't say enough nice things about the Newagen Seaside Inn and Jason Schlosser! Our ceremony and reception were absolutely PERFECT and just the way we had always imagined!! Newagen is located on the most picturesque peninsula in Southport, ME providing you and your guests the most idyllic coastal Maine experience. The Inn itself is a beautiful and charming quintessential Maine inn. All of our guests absolutely loved staying there!! The food that was prepared for our cocktail hour and wedding reception was amazing. Not only did it taste delicious, but it was also presented beautifully!! One of our favorite things about the Newagen is how incredibly special they make you feel. We didn't have to worry about another wedding happening on the same day as ours, as the Newagen guarantees that your wedding is the only wedding that day! This is very unique, as some places can have up to three weddings the same day! Another one of our favorite aspects of the Newagen is Jason Schlosser. Jason is incredible and was so wonderful to work with. He goes above and beyond to make sure that your wedding day is exactly how you want it to be!! I am not sure how it is possible, but Jason makes your feel like you are the only bride and groom that he is working with! Planning a wedding with Jason was so much fun and I am so sad that it is over!!

Our wedding at the Newagen Seaside Inn was beyond incredible! I couldn't recommend this place more to future brides and grooms, it is the best place on earth to get married!!

The Newagen deserves more than 5 stars for our daughter's wedding experience. Jason was always willing to meet and talk with us and was super flexible to help us plan a wedding that matched the bride and groom's personalities. Our friends and family loved being able to stay at the inn and be surrounded by the beautiful Maine coast. Since many of our guests came from out of town, it was like a big family reunion and a mini-vacation. The staff were very professional and helpful. Many of our friends raved that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to (including their own!). The Newagen is now near and dear to our family and we treasure the special memories we made there.

The Inn is beautiful both Jessica and Jason were GREAT to deal with. Can't wait to go back for our anniversary and hopefully get the same room!!! I personally wish I would have done more flowers outside, but that was completley my fault. The room they had for our reception was perfect for the size reception we had and everyone was very accomodating with the room. It was just was I had hoped for. Only had one mishap and that was with storing the flowers and the cake and the reason for that was there was another wedding the day before so there was some confusion, but we got it straightened out. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!!!!!!! Thanks again for everything Karen and Jeff

I can't say enough about the Newagen Seaside Inn. This is quintessential Maine at it's very best. We had our wedding here a few weeks ago and we haven't been able to stop talking about each and every detail. From the minute we arrived, we felt like we were in our own world. To have the inn to yourselves is an incredible treat and facilitates actually getting to spend time with your family & friends at various different points throughout the weekend whether it be at breakfast, around the bonfire, playing on the grounds, in the pine room or on the dance floor. We had one quick meeting with Jessica at the beginning to talk over each detail, and then never had to think about any bit of it again. And all went perfectly. Newagen has a unique and rustic charm in and of itself, but Jessica really accommodates any details you'd like to include to make that weekend your own. Also, if you're worried about the weather, I have to say that this is one of those places in Maine that is almost more magical when the fog rolls in.

Jessica and everyone at the Newagen Inn took incredibly good care of us. Jessica was always immediately responsive and supportive to each and every question and need during the planning. The Inn has a list of preferred vendors that made the search for vendors stress and worry free. By the time the weekend of our wedding arrived, we didn't have to lift a finger or worry about a single detail the entire weekend. Our friends and family couldn't believe how present and relaxed we were able to be all weekend while the wedding and weekend events just magically unfolded. The setting is beautiful and we had perfect, sunny, 80 degree weather the entire weekend.

Our wedding weekend at Newagen was an amazing, magical experience.

Positives:
-the location is absolutely beautiful, quintessential Maine along the water
-the grounds were very well maintained and offered many areas for children to play
-the staff was very attentive over the weekend and flexible with our requests
-the food (including the meals in the pub, lobster bake rehearsal dinner, and wedding cocktail hour/reception food) was phenomenal. We were nervous about the food and execution of the food going in, but Fiona and her team blew it out of the park. We upgraded the surf + turf to a filet mignon cut of meat - it was a big hit.
-the rooms in the little inn were newly renovated and very well decorated (with air conditioning...which was a huge plus when getting wedding-ready!)
-hotel management and staff did a decent job dealing with our festive/rowdy large group
- Jeremy (our coordinator) is an incredibly nice guy to work with
-We also hired Kate Martin from Beautiful Days for flowers, decor, and planning - she was absolutely incredible! I would highly recommend her and her team.

Areas for consideration:
-tent festivities must be shut down at 10PM
-transitioning to the Pine Room for the after-party wasn't as smooth as anticipated and by the time we set up food and drinks there, it was time almost shut down (12AM)
-pre-wedding planning responsiveness was spotty at times
-final invoice based on head count wasn't issued until 2 days prior to the wedding; the venue then increased the cost/pp for the food the day after the wedding upon check-out. This was quite a surprise, but what are you going to do?

At the end of the day, our incredible wedding washed away any concerns we had. We appreciate Newagen and staff for making our wedding one to remember and cherish forever.

The Inn Keeper & staff at the Newagen Seaside Inn were a huge part of our day, especially since a tropical storm hit Maine the weekend of our wedding! They were beyond accommodating, said & did all the right things to keep my mind at ease that the day would be perfect, regardless of the rain, and were beyond flexible when we had to move the entire event indoors a day before the wedding. They were wonderful hosts, we had the entire Inn for the weekend for our many out-of-town guests, and they made us feel at home from the time we set foot on the grounds until we left a married couple! We couldn't have asked for a better, more memorable weekend and have already been invited back to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. It was a beautiful location, Inn and wedding and the Newagen Inn was the perfect place for our celebration!

The Newagen is a truly lovely location for a wedding. The inn and grounds are breathtaking; the staff was kind, friendly, and accommodating; and the surrounding town is full of beauty, adventure, and friendly neighbors. We felt at home there instantly. In fact, the Newagen staff made us feel like we were the only guests there, despite having rented out every room. The wedding itself took place on the lawn overlooking the ocean, the reception took place outside in the gazebo, and the dinner was held in one of their beautiful dining rooms. Don't let me forget the amazing bonfire on the lawn - complete with s'mores! Some of our decisions were not made until the day before the wedding and the staff was flexible and happy to accommodate us. The food at the Newagen is delicious! Chef Fiona prepared our rehearsal dinner (a lobster bake) and our wedding dinner and our guests were beyond satisfied. My husband said the hamburger in the pub was the best he's had. Furthermore, the breakfast (which is included) was phenomenal and freshly prepared each morning! The walking trails and bicycles were easily accessible, the pool was well-cared for, and the pine room was something special. We could have easily spent more than a week there and never ran out of things to do.The island gives you a feeling of isolation and yet Booth Bay Harbor is only 15 minutes away (though, you hardly have to leave the inn).It is such a wonderful place for families of all ages. Our wedding and our stay at the Newagen Seaside Inn exceeded our expectations in every way. My husband and I are already planning a return trip and can't wait to visit over the years.

We LOVED the setting, but paid a pretty penny for it. Nothing was included with the $3,000 to have the event at the place. We had to pay for bar set-up, wait staff, use of game room, etc. NOTHING came with the place, the rooms were very expensive, and the end bill was about $15,000 more than we originally budgeted for when all was said and done. Again, the place was os unique and the wedding was unbelievable...we just were not aware of ALL the expenses when we decided to have our wedding there.
