The Edgewater House is an absolutely beautiful place to get married and quite unique compared to the other options available in the Puget Sound area. Our wedding day went off without a hitch and we continue to hear from our guests how it was the most beautiful and fun wedding to which they've been. Marilyn and her team were professional and do a wonderful job keeping this looking beautiful during the busy wedding season.

With that said, there are a few things one should know if they're considering this venue. Like another reviewer mentioned, we were shocked at the jump in price from the verbal quote we received in June 2010 and the new quote we were given when we were finally able to book a date and put down our deposit 10 weeks later. By that time, our emotions were so invested in this venue that we decided to just splurge and cut back the budget for some of our other vendors. I don't regret our decision in the slightest, but the anxiety caused by the fact that we couldn't book a date until "sometime in August" and the price jump was very stressful and frustrating. Marilyn offered various other services that really completed the vision we had for our wedding (bonfire, fireworks, smores) but instead of including them in the already very expensive package, they were all extra. Just left me feeling kind of nickled and dimed.

Marilyn was responsive for the most part...calling her and leaving a message ended up being the best way to get a hold of her (versus the email tool on her website). Our other vendors didn't seem to have any major issues coordinating with her and from what I can tell she has good business relationships within the wedding industry. She seems to love what she does and clearly takes a lot of pride in her property. I would certainly recommend The Edgewater House to anyone looking for a beautiful, beach side wedding venue...just be sure you get a written quote and copy of the contract before you become emotionally invested.

We loved the wedding site but I should have realized from day one what we were getting into. We found the site via word of mouth and it is absolutely stunning. We went to visit April 2010 and fell in love with the site we were told at that time that she was not going to take reservations until the end of the summer being sept 1st because she wanted to get through her busy summer of weddings in 2010. At this time she had also told us the cost for the venue and had also said that she should have tables and chairs that would be apart of the price she quoted us by mouth. So when september came we called to go take another look at the venue and we decided this is the place. That night we asked what days she had open, she only had three Saturday's left in the summer of 2011, which I forgot to mentioned we called/emailed many times leading up to sept asking if we could put a deposit down. So it was frustrating to see she only had three days left. Out of the three days we really only had two days that would work so we decided on a certain day with her and then left. We spoke to her a few times on the phone and headed back out to give the deposit, when we went out she had given the date away and said someone had already given her the deposit for that day. Should ave been a huge red flag. So we decided we would pretty much go with the only day she had left and we gave her our deposit. The price she had quoted us almost doubled by this time as well nothing was in a contract form so we just went with it. About a month later we were on vacation and I get a call from Marilyn asking if we paid the deposit, I said yes (remember it's the only way you would save our date) she had cashed it a week after. Then it comes to the guest house she has two adorable guest cottages that all the bridesmaid were going to stay at the night before the wedding we rented one for the nigh before. I asked if we could have a certain one because I liked it better and we had already paid for one the night before the wedding, she told us she could not guarantee what house we would stay at. Which makes no sense at At all because we had already paid and our wedding was the next day. She also mentioned that the night of the wedding other people could be staying at the houses ( maybe people from the wedding that would be on Sunday) which does not seem right because she advertises you have free range of the property when you stay their. So long story short we ended renting both of them the night before and the night of the wedding even though we truly only wanted one for the night before. About a week before the wedding we had heard she had bought tables and chairs through a party rental store that does weddings at her place all the time. So my husband called to ask her and she said no that's not true. So we called party store to make sure our tables and chairs would be there and they said mariyln has them. So we call again and she said no (was this because she originally told us they would be included in the price). So we headed out to meet with her pay our final bill three days before the wedding, she was so unorganized had about 10 different papers with different quotes from the party rental store and another quote with just tables an chairs, with a lot of confusion we figured out and she finally old us the tables and chairs are coming from her and everything else linens and glasses etc will come from party rental store. So we pretty much just ucked it up wrote her a check and another to th party rental store. She then asked if we wanted the bonfire lite and the wedding and we said yes of course and she goes on to say that cost....she never told us this would cost to light the fire. It was one thing after another with her first time we went there she made it sound like we would have venue as late as we wanted, that guest houses were included with the price, that fireworks were included in price, that tables and chairs were included and that the cost was half of what it was. The final straw was that she requested that we be out of the guest houses sunday by 9am we didn't even want to rent them but did so we did not have random people in them the night of our wedding. In the sum of all of this the wedding was beautiful the site is truly amazing. She needs someone to run her business for her, I would not recommend the edgewaterhouse unless you want a huge headache
