The Report:

Established in 1927, the Pridwin Hotel is a classic, all-wood resort hotel situated on a nearly 10-acre site on Crescent Beach. Amenities for guests of the hotel include a variety of boats for water activities including paddle boards, kayaks, sunfish, a rowboat and one-speed cruiser bicycles for rent. The Moussa Drame Tennis Club is also on the premises as well as nearby hiking on the trails of the nearby 1500-acre Mashomack Nature Preserve.

Woman Getting Married Says:

This hotel has a rustic charm that adds to the gorgeous waterfront location (even though there is a road separating the hotel from the water it doesn’t really take away from the views). And while the rooms are a bit of a throw-back (they are currently undergoing renovations) the property has a fun/hip nostalgic vibe that could be perfect for a laid-back wedding.
