Long Island Wedding Venue Thatched Cottage Reborn in Centerport

There’s a new shingle out at the Thatched Cottage.

Centerport’s iconic waterfront catering hall will host events again – in 2019 – five years after the 21,000-square-foot property fell into bankruptcy. The landmark venue formerly known as the Thatched Cottage, shuttered since 2014, is now owned by Port Jefferson Station-based The Crest Group.

The real estate investment organization bought the Thatched Cottage for $2.8 million in 2016 after the 25A mainstay in the Town of Huntington sat in disrepair from damage sustained by Superstorm Sandy and Tropical Storm Irene – and haunted by its former longtime owner’s failed suicide attempt.

With new signage touting a grand reopening, there’s hope for renewal after the classic venue degraded into eyesore status.

Rebranded Water’s Edge and slated to open in the second half of 2019, the renovated property boasts on its website that it will once again host: “Gold Coast weddings featuring indoor and outdoor ceremonies accompanied by lavish memorable receptions.”

The Long Island destination venue, located at 445 East Main St., will be operated by Danfords, which already has under its belt the signature Danfords Hotel and Marina in Port Jefferson.
