The best venue

From the moment I walked in, I knew the Boathouse was the perfect venue for us. I couldn’t be happier with our experience. James and Megan were extremely helpful throughout the process, and really showed up the weekend of our wedding. Not only is the venue stunning, but the people behind it are incredible. Highly recommend!

The Boathouse Shelter Island

My husband and I had our wedding here July 3, 2021. When we were looking for wedding venues we wanted something different and unique and when we came across the Boathouse it checked both of those boxes. Turns out the Boathouse would check all of our boxes and then some! It sits right on the water with the most amazing views and they have a huge field area to have your ceremony and take pictures. The Boathouse provided a blank canvas for us to create our vision and it really came to life for our wedding. Megan and James are truly the most amazing people to work with. They were always responsive and accommodating. They went above and beyond to ensure that we had the most perfect day! Our wedding truly was absolutely perfect and our guests still tell us it was the best wedding ever!! 1000000/10 recommend!!

Beautiful location and incredible help!

The Boathouse was beautiful! It surpassed my imagination for our wedding day. Our ceremony on the lawn was gorgeous, the island cocktail hour was magical and the reception was a blast! Bringing in all the vendors was challenging, but Megan's recommendations were very helpful. She and James were flexible with all our COVID needs and worked with us to make the day a success.
