CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE: Chesapeake Bay Beach Club Celebrates 25th Anniversary

STEVENSVILLE, MD (June 27, 2024) – The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club (CBBC), an award-winning leader in waterfront weddings, events, and hospitality, proudly announces the celebration of its 25th Anniversary. Since opening its doors on July 1, 1999, CBBC has become a beloved destination for weddings, special events, and luxurious getaways, earning a reputation for excellence in service and experience.

Over the past quarter-century, CBBC has hosted thousands of memorable events, ranging from waterfront weddings, corporate retreats, and community celebrations. Situated on the scenic shores of Kent Island, CBBC offers breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay, elegantly appointed venues, curated food and beverage, and a commitment to personalized service.

“Celebrating 25 years is a testament to the dedication and passion of our incredible team, loyalty of our guests, and the unwavering support of our community,” said Dereck Janes, President and CEO of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club. “We are deeply grateful to everyone who has been part of our journey. As we look to the future, we remain committed to providing unparalleled experiences and creating lasting memories.”

Expansion and Growth

In the beginning, CBBC offered a one-of-a-kind waterfront setting; casual beach dining at the Shrimp Shack; live bands at The Pavilion; beach bars; watersports; and Tavern on the Bay restaurant, a local favorite. The addition of three waterfront ballrooms, solidified its reputation as a premier waterfront wedding destination. National recognition came when the Today Show hosted their “Home Town” wedding in 2005. In 2015, after more than a decade of consistent growth, CBBC expanded into a comprehensive resort complex. Now in its 25th season, CBBC welcomes guests with 77 beautifully-appointed guest rooms and suites (The Inn), wellness-focused treatments at their full-service spa and salon (The Spa), and more than 30,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space. Guests and locals alike enjoy our dining options – including The Market, a gourmet café, coffee shop and gift boutique, and Knoxie’s Table, a lively signature restaurant offering seasonal cuisine inspired by the hard-working farmers and watermen of the region. The Inn offers an array of amenities including dipping pools, firepits, chef gardens, outdoor lawn games, beach cruisers, and more. 

A Vision for the Future

“We are proud of our distinctive position within the hospitality, wedding, and special event industry and our accomplishments since opening,” said Dereck Janes. “Over the years we have continually raised our standards and expanded our offerings, always with a focus on excellence. Our dedicated staff, many of whom have been with us from the beginning, have been the cornerstone of our success. As we celebrate 25 years, we look forward to continuing this legacy and welcoming new guests, clients and couples to experience our world-class hospitality.”
