Amazing!! - Beautiful and Professional!

I absolutely loved having my wedding at The Boathouse at Mercer Lake! It was beautiful, super organized, and I loved how you get to have your ceremony on the pier, cocktail hour on the deck, and the reception inside. Sonya and Christina were great from the start and were present throughout the entire wedding, helping us out! Could not recommend the venue and the staff more!

Superb management and Staff!!

Sonya Siso and her staff, at the boathouse on Lake Mercer is absolutely superb! Five star in every category!! She ran circles around our wedding planner for my daughters wedding!! Completely flexible, communicative with immediate responses! She and her staff converted our outdoor ceremony to an indoor one due to weather without blinking an eye and it was absolutely just as wonderful as it would’ve been if not better!! Super accommodating staff. You absolutely do not need a wedding planner with Sonya and her staff, if you plan on taking care of all of the details leading up to two weeks out from the event.

A Dream Come True

My husband and I fell in love with the atmosphere when we first arrived. Not only is the venue itself amazing but the staff is incredible. They did anything and everything they could to make sure our day was everything we dreamt of. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was spectacular! Special shout out to Sonya who was amazing and supportive during the whole process especially because we had to postpone twice. The Boathouse will always have a special place in my heart.
