About The Boathouse at Mercer Lake

The Boathouse at Mercer Lake is a picturesque wedding venue in West Windsor, New Jersey. This lakeside home, nestled inside Mercer County Park, is a beautiful and laid-back environment for intimate weddings, but has the space and modern venue inside for a big party too. With 25 years experience in the wedding industry, The Boathouse at Mercer Lake staff know how to turn your wedding visions into reality. From locally sourced catering options to a dance floor that will electrify the night, you won’t be disappointed when you choose The Boathouse at Mercer Lake for your premier wedding venue.

Facilities and Capacity
The Boathouse at Mercer Lake is newly renovated space, with a quaint lakeside gazebo, outdoor reception area, and modern indoor event space. Outdoors, you’ll be surrounded by lush forest greenery and the rolling New Jersey hills. The gazebo, used for most outdoor wedding ceremonies, overlooks Mercer lake for a beautiful view no matter what time of day or season. Once the ceremony is complete, you have a choice of two indoor venues for your reception. The Lakeside Ballroom, with a maximum capacity of 250 guests, offers 19’ vaulted ceilings, a dance floor, and custom lighting as well as a dropdown LED projection system. The ballroom is ideal for large events and more modern reception parties. The smaller Cove Room offers space for 40 guests.

    Beautiful wedding

    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!!!
