September 8, 2019

The Clubhouse at Baywood in Millsboro has once again been named Best Wedding Reception Venue in Sussex County by the readers of Coastal Style Magazine.

Rachael Bain, director of events at The Clubhouse at Baywood, was named Best Wedding Planner in Sussex County.

The restaurant and event facility owned by SoDel Concepts is situated on the Baywood Greens Golf Course. The property boasts award-winning gardens that serve as unique ceremony and photo backdrops. The ballroom, which can accommodate up to 260 guests, and the veranda overlook the greens and landscaping.

The Clubhouse at Baywood can handle every aspect of the special day. There is an on-site florist, for instance, and well-known chef Ryan Cunningham oversees the award-winning cuisine. The venue benefits from being within walking distance of many exceptional vacation rental homes for out-of-town guests and wedding parties.

“We believe that The Clubhouse at Baywood is one of the most scenic settings for a wedding along the coast,” said Danielle Panarello, director of operations. “Our team truly cares about the couples who choose to get married here, and they go above and beyond to create a magical day that guests will remember.”

“Rachael is a dedicated, hard worker, and she very much deserves this recognition,” Panarello said. “She is an example of someone who has a great passion for her job – she is a consummate professional.”

Bain, who has a degree in hotel and restaurant management from the University of Delaware, joined the Clubhouse at Baywood in 2015. Her sister was married at The Clubhouse in 2014. Bain was a semester intern in the food-and-beverage program at Walt Disney World and interned as an event planner at the Virden Retreat Center in Lewes.
