About Lake Ellyn Boathouse

Nestled in the heart of west suburban Glen Ellyn, on the banks of Lake Ellyn, the Boathouse can serve as the perfect locale for your next corporate or social gathering. Why not match the significance of the occasion with the splendor of the Boathouse?

The shore of the picturesque lake is resplendent with natural flora that accentuates the current season. The large deck off the eastside of the boathouse provides spectacular views of the lake and resident wildlife. Inside, enjoy the spaciousness of an 1,840 square-foot hall with seating for up to 120 people.

Please Note: Lake Ellyn Boathouse closes mid-December through the end of February for ice skating and re-opens for rentals the first weekend in March.

    We had a great experience here at the lake house! I have been visiting this park ever since I was a little girl and grew up in Wheaton. My Uncle and Aunt were married here and my parents went to high school just up the hill. It was a no brainer for our wedding since we we trying to keep our budget as low as possible.

    We did not pay extra $1,000 to reserve the boathouse deck, no one bothered us and they even let us put lights out there for the evening ambiance. We paid a chair rental company to rent chairs for our outdoor ceremony. Our guests had to keep their beverage inside but there was a nice sign they provided to remind guests. There was plenty of fridge space, tables and chairs for us to use inside the venue. The rep that was on site the entire day even got us extra tables and chairs whenever we needed them and set them up for us. We used command hooks to hang most of our decorations and our bartender had a great set up for her bar including the ice machine in the kitchen. The bathrooms were beautifully updated as well as the patio and deck. It was gorgeous!
