Our wedding was this past November at the Boathouse at Mercer Lake and it was absolutely beautiful! We worked with Sonya who was an absolute dream to work with. She was quick to respond to all of our questions and made sure we got everything we requested before, during and after our wedding. Our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were all amazing. The food was FANTASTIC. Staff were beyond nice and accommodating. Beautiful amazing venue!!!Sent on 12/23/2018

The Boathouse at Mercer Lake gave us the absolute perfect wedding venue. It was everything we were looking for and it couldn't have surpassed our expectations any more than it did! Everything was perfect on the actual day, and the staff, decor, service, and aesthetics were all on point. The Gazebo made for a perfect spot for our ceremony... and our food, don't even get me started. It was UNREAL! Daniela, Sonya, Erin and the staff took care of our every need leading up to and on our big day, and we can't picture our special day having happened anywhere else. Book your wedding here. You won't be sorry.Sent on 08/13/2018

Our wedding was on May 20, 2018. From the first visit, our experience with the Boathouse at Mercer Lake was a dream. Daniela was our event coordinator and she made the whole process very smooth. We live in Michigan, so we communicated a lot via e-mail. She completely understood our vision and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The space is beautiful and the park is lovely for pictures. The staff was attentive and were always happy to help in any way they could. There is only one wedding at a time, so your party has the whole space. Wedding planning can be stressful, but the Boathouse team ensured a beautiful day for me, my husband, and our loved ones.Sent on 08/24/2018
