Set amidst majestic old oak and magnolia trees, overlooking the emerald waters of the Choctawhatchee Bay, the Bay House provides a unique and exciting waterfront venue for events both large and small. Looking for a location for a Destin wedding?

While the venue is new, the structures are part of Destin’s history having been built in 1952. The renovated main building, the Bay House, is reminiscent of the times with old red brick and wood floors. With over two thousand feet of space, as well as a generous screened porch, it features an indoor dining area offering exquisite bay views. Experiencing this old Destin charm, does not mean having to sacrifice modern conveniences. The Bay House has upgraded facilities and a state of the art sound system and wireless microphones that project both inside and out onto the green space. This meticulously manicured lawn and white sandy beach are the ideal stage and the crystal waters the backdrop for a Destin wedding or event for up to two hundred guests. A deep water dock adds to the waterside lure and is a perfect prop for photographers.

A second building or “Bridal Cottage” on-site rests apart from the Bay House and provides a charming space for pre ceremony preparations, perfect for the bride and her bridesmaids to get ready for the main event. Like the entire setting, the cottage offers numerous photo opportunities inside and out with fountain and deck.

Located in “old Destin,” near the Destin Bridge, the Bay House is close to all the resort beach communities along the Emerald Coast, including downtown Destin, Crystal Beach, Sandestin and Fort Walton Beach. Partnering with Southern Vacation Rentals, the Bay House offers wonderful options for guest accommodations for the perfect destination wedding.

In addition to being the ideal venue for Destin weddings, the Destin Bay House is a rare waterfront spot for reunions, corporate meetings or any other special occasion that deserves a unique setting. For more information on hosting an event, visit
