Stunning Social Events




Is there a more beautiful coastal slice of heaven for your wedding? We don’t think so. But we are biased of course. Exclusively for hire, Sheephead Island Resort is a magical place to begin your life together with your family and friends cheering you on. The more than 64 pristine acres of fields, roads, ledges, pond and beaches is a stunning backdrop to your special day.  With so many incredible spots the most difficult decision will be where to say I do on the island. The good news is when you reserve Sheephead Island Resort, you get the entire island to create your fabulous celebration.

Sheephead Island Resort comfortably accommodates up to 150 people on site in our luxury fully furnished glamping tents. We can accommodate up to 200 day of event guests. Our expert staff transports guests on and off island via water taxi. The ride from the Deer Isle Yacht Club is a short .78 of a mile to Sheephead Island.

Receptions can be as formal as an 6 course plated meal or as casual as a traditional Maine lobster bake. Enjoy your appetizers beachfront and later, your formal meal in the middle of an incredible lupine field.  And if the weather’s too chilly, come inside our lodge for more comfortable celebrations. Our Island Planner will work with you and your planner to design the wedding of your dreams and make sure that every detail is organized to the second.

The first step to planning your Sheephead Island Resort wedding is giving us a call to check availability. Our short season means that we do book fast and often seasons ahead. When considering an event on Sheephead Island Resort, please remember that although the island is navigable by four-wheel drive at low tide, high tide requires boating a short .78 mile to the island.  It is for this reason that all of our social and private events are multi-day and require a buyout and your own dedicated planner.

We would love to celebrate with you. Reach out today!
