Boathouse- Shelter Island
The Boathouse is a gorgeous venue for any event. The marina and bay views make for a gorgeous evening or daytime event. The exterior deck adds a wonderful dynamic to the party scene as well. The entire facility is new and very well-kept and clean. Megan and James did a phenomenal job for my husband’s 50th bDay. They were so helpful and flexible and very professional! I highly recommend the Boathouse.Sent on 05/14/2019

From the outset of our first contact with James and Megan they have been both consummate professionals and totally responsive. The quality of their venue is superb and all of our guests commented on that. They said the facility was impeccably groomed and maintained and was an impressive venue. Of course, that's great to hear but from a client point of view what was more important was their attention to every little detail and fast, positive response to every one of our requests. Guests also gave very positive feedback on the use of the island for cocktails and the boathouse for the dinner and dancing. The final result of all James' and Megan's efforts is that we had the most spectacular wedding reception you could ever imagine. It was magical thanks to them.Sent on 09/26/2018
